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

Thats why we’re pretty good at finding high-street copies of our 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 Waiste, 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.

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

If you do want to invest, you’ll be glad to know that loafers and chunky soles are set to continue, meaning you’ll definitely get enough wear out of your Prada’s.
