Manufactured in a facility on the outskirts of Florence, each hand-sewn loafer passes through the delicate hands of a team of highly-skilled artisans who are involved in perfecting each and every shoe. After being sewn together and lasted, the shoes are then hand-stained and welted before going through a finishing process that includes polishing, drying, and the addition of the signature horsebit. For decades the Iconic horsebit loafer has stood for elegance, a status symbol for many, a collector item.
Recently Gucci turned 90 years old and for their Anniversary month they came out with a Blue Suede horsebit loafer, which is no longer available. I am a happy owner of the Gucci Blue Suede loafer. Surprisingly all three pair of my Gucci loafers are in suede, odd.
