Loafers are classic and casual shoes that can go from work week to weekend. But your loafers may have crossed the line into downright lazy if they won't even hug your heel anymore. Several things cause your leather friends to slack off in their duty: they can stretch, you can have weight fluctuations and you may have thinner socks that cause an issue. Nothing ruins a nice walk quite like a flipping loafer, so take a few steps to keep your shoes snug and secure.
Rock a thicker sock. If you normally wear thin dress socks with your loafers, there's nothing for a lazy loafer to hold on to if it's loose. Switch to a thick nubby sock with some texture to it.
Add a few adhesive bandages onto the back of your heel or to the inside of your shoe to tighten up any gaps. You'll have to change the bandages every time you wear your loafers, but it's a cheap trick that can keep your flipping shoes on your feet.
Purchase thick bunion adhesive pads or moleskin and cut to fit the inside of your heel. You can find these at any drugstore or market.
Place an insole pad in the shoe. Sometimes just a little lift will help the shoe hit on a different part of the heel and stick.
Glide on a bit of glue stick to the outside of your heel -- either on the sock or your skin. The stickiness will help provide traction to the shoe. You can also purchase a commercially-prepared formula that helps prevent shoe rubbing and keeps the shoe from irritating the foot. Hairspray also works in a pinch; choose a thick lacquer that makes your heel sticky.
