Let us go ahead to find out the difference. First…

       Loafers and MOCASSINS are entirely different brands. Mocassins date back to the Native Americans who fashioned their own brand of mocassin boots, them primarily for hunting.  Loafers is a shoe type based on the moccasin style.

The main difference between loafers and mocassin is that loafers have prominent heels. In fact they are normal heel shoes that don’t need a shoe lace. However newer loafers come with embellishing styles like laces(that do nothing) , bows ribbons. Mocassins on the other hand have no heels. They still maintain the original native american concept of stealthy hunting shoes. Some newer brands may incorporate some stylish soles. An example is Tod’s mocassins that come with studs. Some other brands may come with footprints, trackprints etc.
