The James Dean loafers

While we're happy in our own skin for the most part, sometimes we do get serious man-envy.

Top of our list of chaps we'd happily swap places with (pre-car crash) is the effortlessly cool James Dean. The Rebel Without A Cause star achieved cult status, despite his limited filmography, for his charisma and style.

Taking inspiration from the 'Penny Loafer', which Dean would wear, the Pointer Tanju is a modern update of a true footwear classic. The shoes manage to combine timeless style and incredible comfortability which means you don't have to feel like you're living in a retirement home, just because you're wearing slip-ons.

You can get yourself a pair here.
