Neuwertig – RALPH LAUREN Black Label OPERA PUMP:41-41.5D
Calfskin Formal Evening Slipper – “Opera Pump”
This model of Evening-Slippers, often called an “opera pump” or “court shoe”, with its Gros-grain bow, is the last word in elegance and the correct shoe for black or white tie, your velvet or brocade 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. (Very smart with black jeans!) I personally prefer this discreet matte-finish calfskin to the more commonly seen patent leather version; a little less “Las Vegas” and a little more “Monte Carlo”, if you take my meaning. Slippers of this type are meant to be light weight and some examples by other makers are not particularly well made. This slipper, made in England for Polo-Ralph Lauren’s top shelf Black Label series has a sturdy leather sole and heel. No doubt it will serve you long and well and most comfortably.
