IN FOCUS: Kleman Dalior Loafers

If you’ve been following the shop for a while you’re probably familiar with Kleman.

These French shoemakers have become a perennial favourite in this neck of the woods, largely in thanks to their iconic Padror model. The Padror is the brand’s signature, but it’s a little known fact that Kleman also makes some of the best loafers in the game. This season we’ve been smitten with the Dalior, a picture perfect and very French take on the penny loafer. Loafers of all kinds are great (laces are overrated), but the Dalior has a svelte profile which distinguishes it from your run-of-the-mill loafs. The classic American penny loafer typically has a meaty moc-stitch along the toe, which ends on either side of the shoe in an even meatier “beef-roll” stitch. This detail gives penny loafers some of their casual chunkiness. The Dalior, on the other hand, has a much subtler moc-stitch and eschews the beef-roll altogether, resulting in a far more streamlined shoe. Their easygoing dressiness makes you look like you have your shit together, but still know how to have a good time. In a sea of sneakers, the Dalior sticks out in the best way possible. Adopt the laceless lifestyle and we promise you’ll never go back.
