Description

This polished menswear twist on our Original Loafer offers a touch of back-to-school nostalgia. 

The loafer is built around a custom last featuring a softly pointed toe & shorter vamp. The result is longer looking legs without much effort. Triple-dyed suede creates highly saturated hues that won’t fade over time.

Fit & Sizing
These shoes are meant to be comfortable (I’ve walked upwards of nine miles in a given day in a pair of Thelmas), but loafers need to be broken in. One of the best things about suede is how it softens and molds to the foot over time. If the shoes feels just a bit snug the first time you try them on (especially across the toe box), that is normal. Within 3-4 wears, the suede will open up and adjust to your foot. If you have a narrower foot, particularly a narrower ankle, we suggest taking your normal size (i.e. If you wear a US 8, try a 38 in Thelma). If your foot tends toward wide, we would recommend trying a half size up (i.e. If you wear a US 8, try a 38.5 in Thelma). At the present time, we only offer our boots in whole sizes. If you are between sizes, we’d recommend going up to the next size, especially if you plan to wear a sock with your boots. Please feel free to reach out with any size additional questions you may have at info@shopthelma.com. Thank you!
