Why are Prada loafers one of the coolest footwear for fall?


The Powhatan, a Native American tribe, were among the first to wear footwear very similar to modern moccasins. They were precisely called “makasin,” or “shoe” in their language. In the early 20th century these shoes would begin to achieve greater popularity, worn by Norwegian sailors and farmers. However, it would be Nils Gregoriusoon Tveranger, a very young shoemaker, who after opening a workshop in the Norwegian town of Aurland would develop a model based on the work moccasins of local sailors. Known as Aurland moccasins they were exported to Europe and North America and are still to this day considered the first official model in the history of this footwear.

Moccasins are a beloved shoe for men and women, for the latter an excellent alternative to work shoes far removed from typical high heels. The success of loafers is also due to the movie stars who especially during the 1950s and 1960s influenced the way of dressing of the most important youth subcultures of that time.


Among the footwear of the moment, Prada loafers have earned a place in the fashion system’s wall of fame. But why does everyone love these shoes so much? This new footwear from Prada is a reinterpretation of the walking boots that have reigned in seasons past, and it connects with the new and much-appreciated mood of the back-to-school season.

The moccasin is made of leather with the Italian fashion house’s iconic logo, featuring a round toe and a voluminous rubber sole. This shoe is especially loved for its comfort and softness, perfectly capable of being able to tell Prada’s story between past, present and future. One of the main merits of this shoe is its adaptability to many situations, perfect day by day and with a decidedly more glam look for special occasions.
