Valentino women’s loafers are a classic but are they worth it?
Valentino Garavani loafers seemed to check all of the boxes when I was searching for women’s white leather designer loafers. These Valentino flats weren’t too chunky, had gold hardware, an Almond shaped toe vs square or too round and were on sale! I’ve been trying to find loafers for the longest time as slides aren’t comfortable enough for walking lots on Summer vacation and sneakers are too casual. Whereas the classic women’s loafer is the perfect shoe for the day when you want both comfort and style! Here’s my honest opinion on the women’s Valentino Garavani VLogo chain loafers and if I think they are worth the money.

How do Valentino loafers fit
I personally find the Vlogo chain Valentino Garavani loafers for women run really wide and big. I have pretty wide feet and they’re too wide even for me. So I’d definitely recommend sizing down half to a whole size from your regular size. Unless you’re planning on wearing thick socks with them all of the time.
Unfortunately I ordered my usual size as that’s what other reviews recommended and they’d sold out of smaller sizes for me to be able to exchange them.
The sizing is very specific to the style so the size I’m suggesting runs big and to consider sizing down in unless you have wide feet is the Valentino Garavani VLogo Chain Loafers not the Valentino Garavani Vlogo Gate loafers or any other Valentino flats.
Are Valentino Garavani loafers worth it
I’m still on the search for a smaller size as I do love this style of women’s Valentino shoes with the classic rather than chunky sole and gold hardware. As much as I love designer shoes, they have to worth it to me.
Personally I think they’re worth it as they’re so iconic and instantly recognizable as Valentino shoes that are less knocked off than their rockstud iterations. Especially of you find them on sale and get a more classic style of designer loafers that you know you’ll wear for years to come.
Are Valentino Garavani loafers good quality
Yes! The leather, soles and hardware are all sturdy on these women’s white designer loafers. These Valentino slip-on shoes are made in Italy. They’re made from polished calfskin on the upper, with a leather lining, leather sole with rubber injection at the 2cm heel.
I find smooth soles like this super slippery and difficult to walk in. So I’d definitely have them resoled before wearing them out for the first time.
Are Valentino loafers comfortable
The leather is stiff to start with as it’s calfskin. So they don’t have much flexion in them and can rub across the toe joints to start with.
Tips for breaking them in:
Luckily wearing socks with women’s loafers is a big fashion trend and also a great way of wearing them to prevent blisters or rubbing while you’re breaking them in.
Other Valentino Garavani loafers reviews say that they break in and are comfortable. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to experience that as mine hit the return pile as they were too big.
Shop for Valentino loafers
I’ve rounded up both the women’s Valentino Garavani VLogo chain loafers along with older and newer styles. As well as a lot of Valentino flat shoes sale finds which make them better value and more worth the money.
Including the black and white version of the Valentino VLogo signature slip on loafers I’m wearing in the Valentino shoes review. I’ve linked a few of the same styles from various stores as they do tend to sell out fast due to the limited quantities of shoes Valentino produces.
