Coming off of summer where there’s really only one shoe I want to wear, fall makes me feel like my footwear possibilities are endless. I’ve spent the last few months in just sandals — mostly for practical, my-feet-are-hot reasons — so the idea of getting to play around with a whole spectrum of boots and new iterations of the Mary Jane has me itching to totally overhaul my shoe collection. And while there are a number of trendy shoes I’m eyeing, when it comes to something that expertly combines comfort and style, few options are better than a loafer.


Despite its more polished feel, the sophisticated shoe has quickly become a casual streetwear staple, worn by celebrities including Katie Holmes, Selena Gomez, and Gigi Hadid who have all paired it with jeans (though Jane Fonda gave a masterclass in elevating it with her trousers-and-button-down ‘fit). And right now, ahead of Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days, a number of loafers are already on sale. So if you’re looking for a fall shoe that looks as good as it feels, consider grabbing an on-sale pair while prices start at just $20.

Lifestride Margot Loafer





If you like a shoe that’s sleek and streamlined, consider grabbing Lifestride’s Margot Loafer, which shoppers call “soft, light, and really comfortable,” while it’s half off. This is a goes-with-everything, wear-everywhere shoe thanks to its short heel and classic, no-frills design. “I love the plain and simple look of these loafers,” raved one person who noted that the timeless style makes them “perfect for work or a casual outing.” And according to another customer, these are a “fall wardrobe staple” thanks to how well they work with an everyday pair of jeans.

Clarks Sharon Gracie Penny Loafer





If you prefer a chunkier style à la Hailey Bieber, two great options are on sale: Clarks’ Sharon Gracie Penny Loafer and Franco Sarto’s Carolynn Lug-Sole Loafer. Clarks has a great wedged option that features an orthopedic footbed and cushioned padding, which has prompted shoppers to call the style “the most comfortable loafers ever.” They “feel like [you’re] walking on air,” wrote one customer. And according to another person who raved that these “fit like a pair of gloves” right out of the box, these loafers had no break-in period.

Franco Sarto Carolynn Lug-Sole Loafer





Franco Sarto, which makes one of my favorite platform mules, has a pair of chunky, lug-sole loafers finished with stylish tassels. And right now, the shoes that are loved by more than 3,900 shoppers are up to 53 percent off. This pick is made from 100-percent leather and includes ergonomic insoles and added cushioning at pressure points. “You could wear these all day and feel like you're walking on a cloud,” wrote one “obsessed” shopper. Another raved about the pair’s “super chic, cool, and stylish” look, calling them “the best fitting shoes [they’ve] ever purchased.”

Loafers are the practical but chic shoes you need for fall. Shop more on-sale styles you can grab from Amazon, below.
