Ladies Oxblood Tassel Loafer with Leather Sole – The LaBelles
We are very pleased to be able to offer you these Tassel Loafer for ladies. They are made by hand in a very small factory in Spain, exclusively for Modshoes. The company has been making shoes for many years, over 2 generations, and I was very pleased with the quality of their shoes.
There are several reasons that we had these made for us, firstly we loved the styling. The way the tassel ties at the front make the shoes look really neat. Secondly they are leather soled, it is very hard to find leather soled shoes for ladies. On the high street you can find lots of loafers, but they are never any good for dancing in.
And Thirdly they just look great.
Tassel loafer for women vary so much in quality, so when I saw these I just knew that people would love them.
The front of the shoes is very neat and dainty. The stitching around the front is trimmed nicely.
We think these shoes will suit many outfits, so can see them being worn with jeans , trousers, dresses etc
Size wise stick with your UK shoe size as they are pretty close to a UK size. Remember though, all loafers grow a bit after a couple of hours, so the shoes must be snug, but not tight on trying on.
It should be noted that these loafers give after a couple of hours, and we have had feedback that it is best to give them a while to warm. Meaning the leather will give really nicely on these, but not instantly. We are advising that if you gently heat them, whilst wearing them, with a hairdryer this speeds the process. At a recent soul alldayer, a lady tried this when she went back to her B&B to get changed. She said that the hairdryer trick made them comfortable for her to wear for that 1st evening out.

*Mod Shoes – LaBelles Loafers Review*
On Easter Sunday I attended Crossfire at Venue 229 in London, which is always a great night out! I always feel like I have to look the part when I am there and spend weeks planning my outfit before the actual event. As part of my very well thought through outfit I decided to wear loafers, I do love a good pair of loafers, that’s the 60’s Mod in me coming out.
Above are the LaBelle loafers from Mod Shoes, I regularly mention this brand on here as I just love their products – I think any shoe lovers would!
What I noticed when I first tried the shoes on as they fit perfectly, now I sometimes have a problem when it comes to the size of slip on shoes. I’ve bought pairs from other shops before in a size 6 and they have been miles too big, then I’ve had to buy a size smaller which meant they were a bit too tight. I didn’t have that problem with this pair of loafers. It was a Cinderella moment, the perfect fit.
Another problem I sometimes have with slip on shoes is that the back can sometimes be a bit too hard. As the LaBelle’s are leather there was no problem with them being too hard, I didn’t even need to break them in before Crossfire. This is fantastic as I am someone who is so use to doing this and always worried about wearing new shoes out to events but I was dancing in these shoes for about 4 hours.
I was wondering what the shoes would be like to dance in, as I don’t like my shoes to have too much grip on them for dancing. Mod Shoes LaBelle Loafers were perfect for dancing in as they have leather sole’s and gripped heels, which I find is the best combination for Northern Soul dancing.
These style of loafers are available in two colours, Oxblood (the colour of mine) or Chestnut, which is a lovely shade of brown and are priced at £85. I would highly recommend Mod Shoes to anyone as well as selling loafers they also sell brogues, boots and retro style trainers.
