Make a bold impression with our Kennedy Black Goodyear Welted Loafers, expertly made in Portugal. The classic design and deep black hue effortlessly complement any formal or casual ensemble, making them a versatile addition to your wardrobe. Walk with confidence, knowing these Goodyear welted Loafers embody European craftsmanship and refined elegance. Experience the comfort of full-grain Italian leather, complemented by soft cushion leather inserts that mold to your unique foot shape over time.


Our new GYFlex collection features the same level of craftsmanship in all our footwear, with one main exception - we've made comfortable, more comfortable. Each pair is made with a rubber sole, and stitched without a metal shank in the middle to allow for maximum bend when you walk. That means a shorter break-in period, shoes that conform more easily to your style of walking, and increased overall comfort. 


The Kennedy is a formal, Oxford-like styled loafer... and the best thing? There are no shoelaces to deal with! Designed with side elastics, the Kennedy allows for easy slip-ins and slip-offs while maintaining a formal look. 

Built on our C157 soft chisel last, featuring black rubber soles. 

Only the finest leathers from Weinheimer Leder. Goodyear welted construction. Handmade with care in Portugal.

The Style

The Style


Loafers are a timeless men's footwear staple, distinguished by their slip-on style that merges convenience with comfort. These shoes typically feature a low heel and a flat sole. Their laceless design ensures a smooth, uncluttered appearance, although some models are accentuated with decorative tassells or metal embellishments.

Versatile in nature, loafers can complement a spectrum of outfits from casual to semi-formal, pairing well with jeans, chinos, or dress trousers. They are particularly favoured for their ease of wear, slipping on and off effortlessly. Recently, they've gained traction in formal settings too, with refined versions crafted from premium leather and designed with a more polished silhouette, making them suitable even for pairing with suits or formal wear, thereby elevating any ensemble with a sophisticated flair.
