Sex: Unisex
Type of clothing: Shoes
When it was popular: 1982-85
Description: White loafer-style shoes with a split-leather or suede sole and a 1/4 inch heel. Worn with all colors of clothing, year-round in all weather, preferably without socks. Originally designed for dancers, Duran Duran popularized the style beginning in 1982 with their album, "RIO." They came in other colors (black, grey and even pink) but the white was the color to have, because it was the preferred color of Duran Duran!

Where I lived, black ones were really popular in the very early 80s, for men and women. We called them jazz oxfords.

Still got my white jazz Oxfords, actually Japan were the first band to wear them, before Duran Duran.
