The ruling is in: chunky loafers are back in a big way this spring. And whether you love them or hate them, the shoe style is just the latest Y2K-inspired trend to see a major resurgence with the help of TikTok, no less.
Loafers have always been a favored transitional shoe — with their slip-on fit, sartorial style and structured lug sole, loafers boast a particular versatility that makes them ideal for just about any season, occasion or even day-to-night look. But, as with most great styles, they've also undergone a more modern and — er — chunkier revamp, in recent years.
While once lauded for its polished, preppy vibe, the shoe has found new life in the form of a chunky loafer frame. From penny loafer styles and heeled loafer shoes to leather and suede-wrapped pairs, you can take your shoe game to new (admittedly chunkier) heights this season with the right pair of chunky loafers.
