As a business traveler who plies the airways with a carry-on bag and briefcase along, I am always appreciative of lightweight shoes. Clarks is an expert in this area, and these two pairs have suited me well.
The Goya Bit loafer is ideal for business or formal events where looking my best is important. Its monochrome look is classy especially with the chrome accent across its front making it great for wearing by itself or with a business suit. I have even pulled them off barefoot at a business casual event with shorts.
However, I love these shoes as a hybrid-use accessory when I pack. The look is dressed-up without being over the top, and this pair does not weigh too much if I decide to carry it with me instead of wearing it. The grippy sole of this shoe is excellent for casual and business occasion and leave behind the weighty clonk that other business shoes carry.
I am a carry-on only traveler, but when business and leisure coincide for more than a few days it is always useful to add a shoe that is more comfortable. That’s where the Clarks Men’s Ernest Loafer comes in to the picture.
This classy loafer shoe matches its more formal sibling but is ideal for those who want to pack light while also keeping its classy look that is ideal for casual business settings. As a traveler who is packing for multiple situations, both of these shoes compliment each other and collapse easily into tight suitcases.
What I appreciate most is there versatility. The fact that I can wear them one day on an exhaustive hike through a few hotel visits for work and then the next day to a business dinner is a testament to their high-quality materials that keep out odor and moisture.
Clarks has a solid reputation for shoes, and I have found that this pairing of business footwear suits me well. Both of these shoes are available at Amazon, Planet Shoes or Zappos’ website for around $100.
