Loro Piana's Summer Walk Loafers Are a Stealth Wealth Essential

The Succession-approved shoe is having its moment in the street style sun, too.

As documented by the Instagram account @jonahfits, Hollywood actor and director Jonah Hill has emerged as one of modern menswear’s foremost style icons, cultivating a far-out fashionista vibe skewed in a firmly beachy direction: Bode mules, Marni shirts, Gucci tailoring, frazzled hair straight from the set of Point Break. (Original version, obviously.) So when, last autumn, the Wolf of Wall Street star was pictured loading a surfboard into the back of a pickup in a pair of turquoise Summer Walk loafers by the luxury Italian label Loro Piana, it suddenly cast the subtle slip-on in a new light.

Loro Piana Summer Walk Suede Loafers


With its distinctive white sole, and an upper available in suede, leather or—if you’re really pushing the yacht out—cashmere, the Summer Walk loafer has traditionally been the preserve of vacationing one-percenters; think Kendall Roy in Montauk. This year, we’re predicting the Walk will take a step into the hypesphere, too, with trainer fetishists binning their limited-edition New Balances in favor of low-profile moccasins.

Beyond Hill’s ’fit pic, evidence of Loro Piana’s rising street-style stock lies in its collaborations with Japanese designer and musician Hiroshi Fujiwara, plus the brand is a favorite of TikTok star Gstaad Guy, a Gen-Z influencer with likes in the millions.
