Calfskin Formal Evening Slipper
This model of Evening-Slippers, a strange and wonderful interpretation of the “opera pump” or “court shoe”, is the last word in barock evening wear for the dandy or denizen of the night, the errant virtuosos committed to bright lights or dark alleyways where good taste and madness meet in a final embrace. Not a bad choice either when visiting Vatican City; goes well with the architecture, though you may be mistaken for a Cardinal. But, as a more practical matter, this is the correct shoe for your velvet or brocade or Chinese smoking jacket, for entertaining at home or out on the town. Of course, it can be worn with a wide variety of dress, formal or relaxed, all the way to jeans.
Slippers of this type are meant to be light weight and some examples by other makers are not particularly well made. This slipper has a sturdy leather sole and a reinforced combination heel. Along with its quilted velvet inner-sole, this promises to be an exceptionally comfortable slipper for your moments of liberation from the colourless quotidian.
