Famed Belgian designer Dries Van Noten has released a pair of “Chocolate” Padded Loafers for Fall/Winter 2021, an apt follow up to his recently-released padded nylon mules.

The legendary Antwerp Six member, who has become somewhat renowned for his elegant tweaks on lazy day essentials, has made a habit of pairing traditional designs and classic looks, with contemporary or colorful applications.

For this latest release, the 63 year old has opted for a 100% soft buttery leather craft, with a matching lining and insole. An elastic back equipped with a leather pull tab makes the loafers easy to slip on and off, while a square toe finish up front makes sure these stand-out from the crowd.

Sat atop a sturdy rubber sole, Dries Van Noten’s “Chocolate” Padded Loafers are available to buy now from Voo Store Berlin, retailing at $646 USD.

In other footwear news, Our Legacy WORK SHOP has teamed up with ROA for a hiking-inspired boot collaboration.
