A Dupe For Those Gucci Loafers

For the past month, I've been hunting for a pair of black loafers (as you'll have seen in my last blog post). A few months ago even though I loved the Gucci loafer I was seeing bloggers wear left, right and centre, I wasn't sure they were my thing. Over the past few months, though, I've come to the realisation that my wardrobe had a loafer-shaped hole. The transition out of student life, where trainers are acceptable 99% of the time, to life outside the student bubble made me realise I needed to invest in some new pieces.
I had some specific criteria - real leather, gold hardware, and that gucci-esque look. Now that I'm working I can afford to invest more in the pieces I'm buying and, whilst I can't go mad (my savings account wouldn't be too happy if I got too spend-happy), I'm able to spend a little more and buy better quality now I have a full-time job.
So, I tried some loafers from Office, some from Asos, and a few more but each pair was too narrow and I knew my feet would be ruined in seconds. I nearly gave up hope, thinking that my feet (whilst not the slimmest, they're not wide enough to warrant wide fit shoes) just wouldn't suit this style of shoe. But I kept looking online in every place I could think until I stumbled across these.

They're from Dune - a brand I've known of forever but never actually tried before. They really were what felt like my last option - everything else I found was sold out in my size. As you've already guessed, they are exactly what I was looking for. The leather is great - nice and soft, and they've already worn in nicely after a few weeks, with not a blisters in sight. The gold detail is really nice and doesn't cheapen the shoe as I've seen happen a few times.

An there's even more good news - they're now on sale! This makes my heart break a little, but I'm so happy with them that I don't mind too much. Dune also do a nice backless slider version which I would buy if we weren't well on our way into the winter months.

Keep an eye out for these on my instagram and in future blog posts, because I'm fully expecting to be wearing these for a long time!
