The first slip on loafer-shoe in London was created by Raymond Wildsmith. It was derived from a bespoke pair of house shoes made for King George VI. The “Wildsmith Loafer” became immediately successful and to this day the style has been carried on by many British shoemakers.
Wildsmith’s modern rendition of the “Wildsmith Loafer” is the Bloomsbury. Available in London tan and mole suede. The Bloomsbury is unlined for comfort with a nicely beveled waist and a very elegant toe shape.
