There are certain shoes that are the epitome of their category. The Loro Piana’s Summer Charms Walk Loafer carries that title in the elevated deck shoe group. It can also be known as a yacht shoe. That sounds a bit elitist. I have neither a yacht nor a boat, but I do like these deck shoes. They are more polished than their casual cousins like Sperry or L.L. Bean.
I would style them for warmer weather with cropped trousers, drawstring linen pants, a midi skirt and or a Bermuda short.
Recently, I saw that a couple of other brands were making their version. I had to investigate.
