Virgil Abloh’s Off-White Gives the Tassel Loafer a Streetwear Update

Tassel loafers aren’t exactly on the cutting edge of fashion. They’re popular among business professionals precisely for their conservative appearance. Trying to update a loafer’s sense of style is an exercise in futility—unless, of course, you’re Virgil Abloh. His Off-White label has reimagined the tassel loafer, keeping much of its conservative sensibilities while also giving it a flair all its own. The result is a stylish shoe that you can wear for any part of your schedule, from day-job to nightlife.

Off-White™ Tassel Loafer In Black front

The loafer is a part of Virgil Abloh’s formal look for its Pre-Fall 2020 collection. The streetwear vibe is still a part of the collection, but there’s also a hint of that formality that will appeal to professionals who still want to express themselves. In the case of the tassel loafers, the shoes still come with the shiny black leather and the formal look so often associated with dress shoes. The rubber heel, however, adds that streetwear feel with a marble effect. The tassels also contribute with yellow stitching that stands out smartly against the shiny black leather. Finally, a green “A” tab on the lateral rear-quarter, as well as the yellow insoles with the signature cross logo, add a pop of colour. The heel of each foot also features a patch of suede. The outsole is branded with Off-White’s logo.

The Off-White Tassel Loafer comes in black and is available through retailers like Oki-ni for $713 USD. These are the shoes that can grace board-level meetings, or a night out with friends. They fit in regardless of the setting, allowing you to make a statement—both conservative and street. With loafers being the shoe to wear for the next year, you’ll want to pick up a pair that reflects more fully who you are, and the style that matches your personality.
