Gucci 1953 Horsebit Loafer: Saddle Up

Gucci 1953 Horsebit Loafer

2013 marks the 60th anniversary of Gucci’s iconic horsebit loafer, and to celebrate the brand has released an avalanche of the classic shoes in all-new colors and textures. I just received a pair from Gucci, and it was a swift reminder of just how chic (and comfortable) they are. Believe it or not, the modern design hasn’t changed in all its years. And when I called it iconic, I wasn’t joking around – Gucci’s timeless shoe has had a place in the MET’s permanent collection for almost 30 years now. Loafers seem to have a reputation as menswear, but these are undeniably feminine in fuschia-colored suede. And if that’s not really your style, the 1953 comes in countless other iterations – suede, patent, animal print, studded, croc, canvas, etc. How’s a Shoe Snob to choose just one?? If you can’t find a pair you like, then I’m not afraid to say you’re just too picky. These were the first things I packed up for Paris – they’ll give my feet a much-needed break from 5″ heels during Fashion Week! Available at Gucci for $495.
