Best Men’s Spiked Loafers

The Spiked Loafer has become quite popular today and is a classy and slightly daring addition to formal footwear.

The Spiked Loafer

A loafer is a slip-on style shoe that usually does not have any fastening or laces and is also more of a casual shoe.

There are, however, more formal styled loafers for formal occasions such as weddings, Cocktail parties, professional Functions, and promos.

These shoes are typically made of leather or suede, and some of them from velvet, with a moccasin-shaped toe and a flat or slight heel and sole.

The Spiked Loafer is a different formal loafer design in which the upper is either covered or decorated with spikes in a variety of colors and shapes.

How to Wear Your Spiked Loafers

There are a few different ways and occasions to which your Spiked loafers are acceptable and ideal to wear;

  • Semi-Formal – A Spiked loafer in a more casual style can leave you looking dressed up yet still relaxed and gives you the option to the best of both worlds in casual and formal events.
  • Formal – Most Spiked Loafers are very formal and designed to give that extra glamorous feeling and touch to your outfit for events such as Weddings, Dress Up Parties, and Formal Office Functions.
  • Loafers with Different Pants Types – Spiked Loafers can be worn with a full suit and suit pants for a formal event. You can also wear your Spiked Loafers with a Chino or more formal styled Jean for a semi-formal or casual look.

Features of a Good Spiked Loafer

  • Uppers – The upper can be made from anything from smooth leather, Suede leather or even velvet and textile materials as this is a more extravagant and formal shoe type. Some materials even have a Glittery appearance along with the spikes.
  • Spikes – Most of these loafers are decorated with either spikes only or a mix of Spikes, Glitter, and Rhinestones. The spikes are generally in Gold or Silver on a contrasting or opposite color shoe, but in some models may be in the same color as the shoe.
  • Design – This is a slip-on loafer design that you will find in a large array of bright and bold colors, black, gold, and silver being the most predominant.
  • Sole – The sole is usually smooth as this is a formal and occasional shoe that might also be used for dancing. The sole can be synthetic or rubber and a similar or opposite color to the shoe.
  • Insole – I have seen some lovely black models with a red interior, although most interiors are similar colors to the shoe. There is usually a comfortable lining and a padded insole for comfort.
  • Toe and Heel – The toe has a narrow to very narrow design, and the heel is slightly elevated for sophistication and a more formal and elegant style.
