Dotty For Loafers


These Gap loafers have hardly left my feet since they arrived a few days ago. The combination of smoking slipper design, quirky print, and calf hair material had me from the second I put them on.


Gap has some really great loafers at the moment. The polka dot style is my favorite, and as of right now, the only pair I’m planning on keeping from the ones I ordered to try on (although I also really like the velvet). I ordered my usual size (5) and found them all to fit spot on.

    Somehow I managed to miss the fact that Gap stocks size 5 shoes online! I’ve been coveting polka dot shoes for fall. How does calf hair hold up, in your experience?

    1. Hi Keilexandra! Calf hair is a little more delicate than regular leather because the material can go bald from friction (so, if you tend to rub or scuff a part of your shoes consistently, it can rub the little hairs off and grow a bald spot). Also, with a lot of wear and rubbing/friction, the little hairs can start standing up or getting pushed around so they don’t lay as nice and flat as they did when the item was new. When I wear calf hair, I’m just a little more aware of where I’m swinging my feet.

    I was eyeing those polka dot loafers after you tweeted them but I’m not too keen on calf hair.  I have a feeling I may end up destroying them  within 5 mins of wearing them.  They do look great on you and I think they would look great with the outfit you wore last Thursday.

    Love the outfit Kelly!  Personally, I really like calf hair on leather.  It’s one of my favorite textures on shoes and bags =)

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve been looking for some loafers and I hadn’t noticed GAP loafers. Those look absolutely fun and whimsical!  Everyone’s been having dots on their radar lately, haha, love it!
