With the increasing popularity of men's driver style comfort shoes, I'm curious to know how it is effecting the loafer popularity.

I voted loafers.  It is all I wear other than golf shoes.  To be honest, I don't have a clue what "drivers" are.

Hi Rick, Thanks for the input. Drivers are kind of a cross between a loafer and slipper with not necessarily a full sole that has
become fashionable to wear when driving your car...thus Drivers.
go to www.piedmontleather.com and check out the pictures of drivers.

Other than golf shoes, all I wear are driving shoes.  I used to be loyal to Piloti shoes, but I moved to Puma driving shoes and prefer them.  Very comfortable, thin, lightweight, stylish. Posted Image  Pilotis are awesome, but more bulky, with more padding.

Ok, went to the website and looked at "drivers".  The loafers I wear with shorts are somewhat of a cross between the loafers and drivers.  They don't have leather soles.  They have a molded rubber sole and leather tops.  I have looked at  variations of the "drivers" (never saw them called that before) and they just did not seem like something I would like.  I buy very good shoes and wear them for a very long time.  The casual loafers I wear with shorts have been resoled (again full rubber sole) twice.  I have a couple of pairs of loafers (full leather soles and rubber heels) for work that are FootJoy.  I have had them resoled once or twice already and  bought backup for them when FJ announced they would no longer be making them.  I have probably less than a month's wear on them.  Not much need to wear them until the others are in the shop again or just worn completely out.

I wear Tennis Shoes, specifically New Balance that come in widths.  I wear them on the golf course also.  They seem to work as well as soft spikes and are more comfortable.  YMMV.Posted Image

I prefer loafers as well. I cannot stand the driver shoe fad. I have tried them on, but I have never found one to be comfortable. If I am going low profile shoes, I got with indoor soccer shoes!

I wear a lot of drivers.  Have about five pair.  One thing about them is they wear out quick if you don’t find something with a little more sole on them.  I have a couple of nubbed ones that are not cheap & they show a lot of wear.  I have a pair of Ferragamo’s that still look great, but they have way more sole.

If you guys are looking for comfortable shoes that look good, look at Adidas Ultraboost 4.0. The Adidas Boost technology is the most comfortable shoe I've ever tried on. I'm 26 and I own many pairs of shoes so I know what is currently good in the shoe market!
