Article: Loafer Season

Loafer Season

To celebrate the official launch of summer this month we produced a small batch of our Joaquin Loafer, a stunning new tassel loafer that we debuted earlier this year.

Joaquin features a carefully hand stitched apron, a sharp chiseled toe, texture of Vegano Inca, our signature embroidered and padded insole, and a Goodyear-welted leather sole that is hand painted in a vibrant red.

The combination of the chiseled toe with the round apron creates a well-balanced composition of shapes that is simple yet elegant. The slim silhouette compliments dress attire and can be easily be paired with a more comfortable outfit on the weekend.

We selected a handmade bister brown patina with light accents on the tassels for a slightly serious but playful touch. We also included a handmade bourbon patina for those who want a lighter look for the summer.

All of our shoes are bench made, Goodyear-welted, and hand finished by our artisan team in Barcelona, Spain. This process includes the use of glass, sandpaper, inks, creams, waxes, fire and multiple iron tools to achieve a bespoke quality finishing that the Norman Vilalta brand has become known for.

The Joaquin Loafer in bister and Joaquin Loafer in bourbon are available now both online and in our Barcelona boutique.
