The Horsebit Loafer is our humble homage to the iconic model of Gucci that was first introduced to the market in the 1950s. It's crafted on the same last as our other penny loafers and finished with a horsebit ornament in a soft golden colour, adding an edge to an otherwise under-the-radar shoe. The result is a timeless staple that works with everything from denim to fine tailoring.
- Crafted by hand in Spain
- Goodyear welted
- Full leather lining
- Single leather sole
- Soft golden horsebit ornament
Fits large in size. We recommend selecting half a size down from what you usually wear in lace-up shoes.
The calf suede is treated with a protecting spray during the last step in production. We do recommend applying suede spray regularly to create an extra layer of protection against water and dirt. If stains or watermarks occur, gently brush the shoes with a suede brush in soft, circular motions. For any stubborn stains use a high-quality suede shampoo.
Some tips to follow, ensuring the longevity of your shoes:
1. Alternate between wears: We recommend letting your shoes to rest after wear and alternate between your styles. The shoes need time to recover from the humidity produced by your feet and the outdoor elements.
2. Use shoe trees: Shoe trees will help maintain the shape and structure in between wears. Using our specially crafted cedar shoe trees will encourage the evaporation of moisture and eliminate any undesirable odors.
3. Use a shoehorn: Using a shoehorn will protect the counter ensuring your shoes maintain their proper fit and comfort.
