Review: Gucci Loafers
I will start this post saying that I thought about this purchase for a little bit more than a year, but I didn't even tried them on, until a rainy day in Milan, that we decided to go shopping and that ran away from the horrible weather. But when I did try the famous Gucci shoes I was immediately sold and even boyfriend was (he used to say that those shoes looked horrible).
So I got the Jordaan in the black leather version, but my first option was actually the Brixton model in the same material. For months I wanted to try that model, but before I did a research about it because I felt that the flexible part could help the shoe to stretch more than normal over time (which is very common for leather shoes) and I didn't want that.
The truth is that in all the posts and information that I read online I didn't notice a complaint about it, but I decided not to verify it myself and went for the Jordaan on my usual size (I'll probably be able to have them on half a size less in winter, but my feet usually swelled in summer. I preferred to stay with the bigger size and be able to use them).
Regarding wear, I only had them since beginning of November and for now, they are in perfect condition, but I did take them to be resole with a very thin rubber sole only in the leather part before even the first use, to avoid the wear. Across the internet, you can read many controversial opinions about this, but I walk a lot sometimes around the city, so I did the best to guarantee them to have a long happy life.
If we talk about comfort, I don't think you'll be able to complaint about these shoes, they are the perfect mix of classic, good looking and comfortable. This is my second pair of Gucci footwear (I also have the sneakers, see the review here) and I'll love to be able to buy many, many more, because they don't hurt my feet at all, not even in the first use. I know that these shoes are super pricey, but can't deny that after you use them, you know that they are worth it.
