Church’ English Shoes
Crushed Velvet Embroidered
The perfect complement to your velvet or brocade smoking jacket. There is no reason not to be properly shod, even at home. The style of this slipper derives from the Edwardian era and earlier. Imagine Oscar Wilde entertaining friends or at his writing desk in his library. It is easy to imagine him in such a slipper. He was reputed to have remarked, “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”
With its full gros-grain cloth lining for comfort and its sueded leather sole and heel for dureability, these are indeed the last word in elegance, just as the poet says, “the best”.
Size Details:UK 11E........US 11.5D.......Continental 45D, for the mid-width foot.
Very lightly worn, with a few trivial blemishes, otherwise superb.
