This shoe was originally designed (in off white) by Milicent, for her own wedding day. She was looking for something for her fall wedding that would feel luxurious and special, but comfortable enough to dance all night in. She loved wearing these shoes at the wedding, but even more afterwards with jeans, patterned pants, and skirts.
In the Slipper shape, we recommend ordering a whole size up from your normal shoe size. If you usually wear a size 8, or a size 38 in our Loafer or Smoking Shoes, you would need a size 39 in the Slipper.
The exterior of our Velvet Slipper is handmade from 100% silk velvet, which was hand-loomed in Uzbekistan. The interior is lined with supple leather and suede, and the sole is leather.
*pre-order available for size 36, will ship sometime in mid January.
