Where did loafers and what is it?

In 1930 the family Spalding engaged in the manufacture of shoes in new Hampshire started making shoes called "loafers," the pre-inspired loafers from Norway. Four years later, in 1934, a well-known shoemaker George bass opened the production of his own line of loafers under the name Weejuns.

Originally these shoes were worn only at home and only men, but after some time, due to its convenience and decent appearance loafers confidently stepped into the streets, and on both, men and women's legs.

still, what is a loafer?

a Loafer is a kind of shoes that have a resemblance to moccasins, but unlike them, made with hard soles, and in most cases, models with a chunky heel.
