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 these beautiful brushed leather loafers from Prada.
You’ve probably seen them over and over again on your Instagram feed recently, 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.
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.
