Take it from me, the Knickerbocker x Kleman collabs are truly excellent. I bought the first one, the Padror, when it came out and wore it religiously for months. So when I tell you this was a dynamite shoe that’s comfy and cool with an easy break-in, I feel confident the newest pieces will be the same.
The new Club Loafer is made by Kleman at their factory in Anjou, France. Though not Goodyear-welted, the shoes are engineered to last and, perhaps more importantly, to stay comfortable all day long. On a comfy rubber sole, the black leather upper is modeled on a Dr. Martens Adrien Loafer, featuring both tassels and a fringed kilty.
Chunky enough to stand out, but still an elegant, classic style, this is a loafer that will make for an enduring cornerstone of your shoe rotation.
Available for $275 ($220 for Heddels Plus type 2 members) at Knickerbocker
