Like everyone, we’re desperate for a pair – but they don’t come cheap.

If you do want to invest, you’ll be glad to know that loafers and chunky soles will be trending this Autumn Winter, meaning you’ll definitely get enough wear out of your Prada’s.

Gucci, Dior and Chanel also have their own iterations of the timeless shoe this season, so you’ll be in good company.
