Despite the rise in popularity of sneakers, that have become a popular option and you can see them being worn in a wide variety of locations, the loafer remains one of the most popular shoes on the market.
Superglamourous’ new Tangerine 14 Maranello Belgian Loafers illustrate perfectly why this is the case and are the perfect choice for the Autumn/Winter season of 2023/2024.

A Little History
Before we delve into the features and benefits of our new loafer, let’s take a quick look at the history of loafers: this will help you understand why this shoe remains important today.
It all started in Norway, where leather slip-on shoes were the norm. They were both comfortable and practical. As soon as English sportsmen were attracted to the area in the 19th century for the quality of the fishing experience, the loafers were quickly noticed and adopted by the sportsmen.
At this stage, the shoes were liked, but they didn’t become a new in-demand fashion accessory. That didn’t happen until the 1930s when a Norwegian shoemaker merged the traditional Norwegian leather shoe with the North American moccasin.
It was many years later that it became known officially as a loafer, but that didn’t stop the Aurland Moccasin from becoming extremely popular in Europe and the US.
Today, there are many fine examples of moccasins, but few are as impressive as the Tangerine 14 Maranello Belgian Loafer.
What's New About The Tangerine 14 Maranello Belgian Loafers
As always, Superglamourous has taken our luxurious Belgian loafer and improved on it further. It’s still handcrafted using soft calfskin which has been washed to create a stunning wax effect. This is only possible because we avoid using chrome and heavy metals when washing.
As with all our loafers, it’s handmade in Italy: you only have to see the shoe to appreciate the style and the quality of this loafer.
This shoe has been created in a traditional chocolate brown with a small heel and metal horse bits across the tongue area. The piping and bands perfectly match the rest of the shoe, giving you a stylish, yet highly comfortable, piece of footwear.
This loafer is designed to work virtually anywhere. With the right outfit, it’s just at home in the office as at a special event.
Calfskin has been used on the upper, trimming bands, and even the lining. The soles are leather and the 16mm heel is perfect for adding a little height without going over the top.
It should be noted that this is made to true size. That means, if you’re usually a European 43/UK 9, then choose that size for your Tangerine 14 Maranello Belgian Loafers. It will be a perfect fit.
