Style Pick of the Week: Astorflex Patnoflex Leather Loafers

The perfect leather loafers for summer are here.

If you swing by the blog regularly, you’ve heard the Astorflex name — this Italian-made footwear brand (as sold by Huckberry) makes everything from rugged leather boots to stylish camp shoes without missing a beat. You can — and should — add your new favorite pair of leather loafers to that running list, and the even better news is that they’re here just in time for summer. The Astoflex Patnoflex takes the traditional loafer silhouette and brings it forward into the modern age, and if you’ve been looking for a stylish pair of shoes to wear at home (aside from canvas sneakers) during these quarantine times, you’re absolutely in luck.

Now, here’s the thing: If ever you’ve tried out a pair of sustainably made Astorflex chukka boots, you know that this family-owned brand is, as Huckberry says, one of the best-kept secrets arond when it comes to stylish men’s footwear. The beauty of the Astoflex Patnoflex starts with, as one would expect, the use of soft European leather that’s only going to get better with time. The Nubuck option is shown at the top of the page, and seems to be a great bet to wear with everything from your favorite chinos to stylish five-pocket pants.

What makes these sleek leather loafers so wearable with everything from tan chinos shorts to tailored navy chinos and a white polo? Well, the answer lies in silhouette itself — the design is sharp and ever-so-slightly dressy, and not as thick as traditional leather penny loafer (although you should ideally have a pair of those, as well!). The Astoflex Patnoflex also features a leather sole for the ultimate in quiet luxury — and yet, you might be surprised to find out that some of the best men’s loafers retail for just $175 at HuckberryThat’s simply an excellent deal on a stylish pair of slip-on shoes you can wear all summer, whether you’re grilling out or kicking back. It’s also nice to have these leather loafers on hand when you want to slide into something more comfortable — for instance, step out of your rugged Astorflex chukka boots into these. The comfort and styling potential is also nearly limitless when you’ve got some of the best men’s loafers in your rotation. Try these out with olive chinos and a grey polo, keep them handy alongside navy chino shorts and a crisp white pocket tee … just add a cold beer or a cup of tasty cold brew coffee, then set out on your summer day.
