Article no. 4950 - Classic Belgian Loafer Loafer in Deerskin Calf Leather

In the 1940s, Henri Bendel designed an understatedly elegant loafer with a small, but an unmistakable bow on the front. This was the genesis of the Belgian Loafer we know and love today. 

A style of shoe that gentlemen wear all around the world, the Belgian Loafer can be paired easily with dress trousers, chinos, denim jeans or even shorts. The thin lining and flexible construction make these shoes extremely comfortable. 

This is Yanko's rendition of a timeless classic. 

Features: 

  • Blake-Stitched construction
  • Deerskin leather used for the uppers
  • Calf lining
  • Half-rubber sole
  • Made in Spain

 

    • EU sizing (refer to size conversion chart)
    • We advise you to size up 0.5/full size up from your regular Loafer size. 
    • For example, if you usually take Euro 43 for your Yanko/Carmina/C&J Loafers, take Euro 44 for our Belgian Loafers.  
    • If you are still uncertain about your size, please e-mail enquiries@seamlessbespoke.com for further guidance.

    Step 1: Using a soft cloth, apply a base coat of Saphir Médaille d'Or Lotion leather conditioner. The beeswax and mink oil will condition the leather fibres and seal in moisture, preventing the leather from drying out. Alternatively, you could also use Saphir Médaille d'Or Renovateur.

    Step 2: Using your fingers or a soft cloth, apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Pommadier shoe cream to your shoes, and allow the cream to dry for a few minutes and be fully absorbed into the leather. After the cream has dried, brush the surface vigorously using a horsehair brush until a soft shine appears on your shoes.

    Step 3: Using a soft cloth, apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe shoe wax and gently massage it into the surface of the leather, using small circular motions. Alternatively, some professional shoeshiners even recommend applying the first few leathers of this wax onto your shoes using your bare fingers. To achieve a high shine, gradually build up thin layers of wax using small amounts of wax interspersed with a few drops of water. As a finishing touch and to achieve that coveted mirror shine on the toe caps of your shoes, use a soft cloth to apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Mirror Gloss shoe wax onto the surface of the leather, using small circular motions. Whenever the surface of the leather starts to feel 'sticky' and the cloth doesn't move around as smoothly, add a few drops of water onto the layer of wax you are building up to keep the surface as smooth and even as possible.
