The Adrian Tassel Loafer first hit the streets in 1980. And with a double tassel and kiltie fringe, the traditional slip-on loafer has been a classic since day one. This season, we've stayed true to the original silhouette — but updated it in soft, fine-grained Virginia leather. Built to last, it's made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt — which means the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch. It sits on our iconic AirWair™ sole, which is oil and fat resistant, with good abrasion and slip resistance.
This is a Goodyear-welted product. The upper and sole are heat-sealed and sewn together, not merely glued like many footwear constructions.
