12 Pairs of High Street Loafers That Look Like Prada (But Won’t Break the Bank)

These will save you hundreds.

Have a penchant for expensive items but missing the designer budget? Me too.

Thats why I’m pretty good at finding high-street copies of my favourite designers – including those beautiful brushed leather loafers from Prada you’ve been seeing everywhere.

I’ve been spotting the loafers over and over again on Instagram over the past 18 months, with influencers and celebrities such as Emili Sindlev, Sara Louise Thomas, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid all being spotted in a pair of the coveted shoes.

It’s not just Prada that have dropped loafers this season. Chanel, Gucci, Celine and Saint Laurent are just some of the designers who have thrown their hat in the ring when it comes to the shoe, so it’s clear the style is going no where soon.

I personally love how they can be worn all year round. Team with a summer dress in the summer, or wear them with your jeans in the winter.

Like everyone, I’m desperate for a pair – but they certainly don’t come cheap. If you do want to invest, here are just a few of our favourites from the designer.

Heeled Leather Penny Loafers & other stories

Loafers, £130, & Other Stories – buy now

Our favourite high-street store has done it again. These shoes are slick, stylish and look almost identical to the Prada pair.

They’re still an investment, but they’ll last for years and if price per wear means anything, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

ASOS DESIGN Storm chunky mid heeled loafers in black patent

Storm Loafers in Patent, £21, ASOS DESIGN – buy now

Prefer patent shoes? On top of over 300 styles of loafers they have listed on their site is this ultra-affordable shiny pair.

This pair from Alohas look pretty similar, but instead of the triangular panel, they have a chunky gold chain.

Vagabond Cosmo 2.0 Loafers

Cosmo 2.0 Loafers, £120, Vagabond – buy now

Vagabond is unrivalled when it comes to chunky shoes. This pair is one of the best Prada dupes on the market now, with an almost identical shape – but they’re also a great shoe in their own rite, which is why Kendall Jenner and Katie Holmes are fans.

ASOS DESIGN Mulled chunky loafer in black

Mulled Chunky Loafer in Black, £24.50, ASOS DESIGN – buy now

You won’t get much closer to a perfect Prada dupe than this chunky pair from ASOS. At just £30, they’re unmissable.
