They do have a small heel that is a staple when it comes to loafers, so you will find this on both the men's and women's versions of these shoes. They have a half inch heel so it is not going to give you a whole lot of height, but this is the average size heel for this type of shoe.
The Gucci Jordan loafers have a midsole that is made out of leather. There is not a whole lot of padding in them so you will not get that cushioned underfoot experience that some people might desire when it comes to their shoes. There are some customers who might want to opt to purchase an additional insert or insole to give themselves a little more cushioning. The leather, however, is soft on your feet and will feel great. In addition to the midsole, there is also leather lining throughout the inside of the shoe to give you a pleasant feeling while you are out and about.
These shoes also have Gucci's signature gold horse bit detail on the vamp of the shoes. This metal detailing on the loafers has been something that Gucci has been featuring on their shoes for as far back as their first pair of loafers in 1953.
That being said, you do need to make sure you take good care of your shoes and treat them well if you are going to want them to last. Gucci does give some recommendations on how to store and clean them to ensure they are going to have a long lifespan. When you are storing them in your closet it is recommended that you stuff them with tissue paper. This is going to help make sure they will keep their shape as well as help absorb any humidity or moisture that is in the air. It is also recommended that you keep them in a flannel shoe bag or box.
If your shoes do get wet you should dry them with a soft and dry cloth to try to prevent any damage. When it comes to cleaning them you should only do so when they are dry. It is advised that you use a neutral color or a same-color cleaning product to make sure the leather does not get stained and discolor your shoes. As long as you take care of your loafers you should not have to worry about replacing them for a long while, if at all.
The leather lining and sole of the shoes give you a nice and soft feeling while you are wearing them. The uppers are designed to hug your feet, giving you a snug feel that is not too tight so you can stay comfortable. According to customers, you will not have to worry about irritating rubbing and blisters while you are wearing these shoes.
Please note that these shoes are made and sold out of Italy and as such are sold in European sizes. Use caution and pay attention when ordering these shoes. Take a look at a conversion chart if you are unsure what your EU size is. You do not want your shoes to arrive only to find out they do not fit as you wanted.
When it comes to arch support there is not a whole lot of information so it is hard to say what it is like in these shoes. That being said, there are no customer complaints about the lack of any so that is always a good sign. If you receive the shoes and there happens to be no support or just not enough you can always purchase gel inserts to give you what you need.
