If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I am, without a doubt, a shoe person. And while I have no shortage of footwear, I had yet to stumble upon a pair that was comfortable all day long and still looked fashion forward enough to wear with multiple outfits.
That is, until I came across M.Gemi. I saw another editor sporting this brand’s brightly colored loafers on her Insta Story and immediately looked them up. I discovered that the suede style, The Felize, had more than 500 reviews and had earned an impressive 4.8-star rating out of 5. So of course, I HAD to give them a whirl.
As a bonus, they’re also 20 percent off right now for Cosmo x Klarna's Hauliday sale starting March 1 (TODAY!) though March 2—just use the code HAULIDAY at checkout. In fact, you can get any M. Gemi style site-wide at 20 percent off with that code. We love a good shoe sale!

The best thing about these loafers is that there are So! Many! Options! They come in a variety of shades and are offered not just in suede but also in a soft pebbled leather. Fair warning: They are pricier than your average flats, but that’s because they’re in no way average.
The rubber pegs ensure the bottoms don’t wear out easily, and while the silhouette is casual, the bright, rich colors make them ideal to wear with fancy outfits as well. Back when I was going into the office, I wore them to work constantly—both with jeans and with dressier ensembles—and while quarantined, I still wear them just walking around the house.
While they do run small, the soft material molds to your foot shape over time so they only become more comfortable the more you put them on. However, if you do prefer a slightly looser fit, I would go up half a size.
If you’re extra picky about sizing, the website also offers a two-minute consultation where you can call or text with an expert to find your perfect fit. Shipping, returns, and exchanges are also free, so it’s basically impossible to pass on getting a pair, IMO.
Still not convinced? Below, reviews from equally happy customers that might change your mind.
“At first, I thought these shoes were too expensive and resisted purchasing them. But after realizing that I don’t buy many shoes, I decided to get them as a gift to myself for Valentine’s Day. They are everything I thought they would be and more. Superior quality and very comfortable. Although they are meant to be worn with casual clothes, they have a remarkable richness about them that allows you to wear them with dress pants too.”
“I love all my M.Gemi shoes, but these may be my most versatile. The gray color goes with almost everything. The pebbled finish is better on wet days than the suede finish. And of course, they are so beautifully constructed and so very comfortable. I could wear them all day every day!”
“People stop me to ask where they are from every time I wear them…once it was 3 times in the span of about 10 minutes. They feel a little tight right out of the box, but I bought my true size and let them mold to my feet for the perfect fit! Don’t hesitate for one second to make the investment in these shoes—they are worth every penny!!”
If you are over wearing uncomfortable shoes but don’t want to sacrifice style, this is the pair for you. Also, because of the plethora of options, basically anyone can find a color and style that speaks to them. Yes, they’re a little expensive, but that’s why they’re an investment piece for your shoe closet! If the reviews have anything to say about it, you won’t regret the purchase.
