Loafers remains a staple in men’s wardrobes, and for good reason. First and foremost, they’re extremely versatile. You can wear them with a suit or jeans and a T-shirt and still look especially well-dressed. There’s a certain nonchalant and intentional nature that loafers carry — they’re less dressy than a lace-up brogue, but sharper than your standard pair of sneakers.

What’s more, their lower heel heights, slip-on silhouette and often cushioned insoles makes them easy to wear in practically any setting.

Because of their popularity, there’s a seemingly endless variety of loafers on the market. They come in various finishes, colors and with any number of bit or tie accents to ensure you’ll never be without options. From classic penny loafers to modernized slip-ons, there’s a loafer style to match any wardrobe and aesthetic.

Below, we’ve rounded up 20 of the sharpest loafers to add to your closet. Whether you’re looking for a go-to shoe for wedding season or simply adding a dressier style to your current rotation, there’s a loafer here for everyone to enjoy.
