Size Guide

Choose Your Size and Fit

  • *The Size

    Select your size

    *The Fit

    This style is traditionally made on the P last, but you can alternatively select the slimmer K last. The P last is traditionally favoured by men, and the K last by women, but not exclusively.

    For men wanting to purchase on the K last, we recommend taking one whole size larger than you normally wear in English made formal shoes

    *The Sole

    We only carry black leather soles in UK sizes 7-12 on our P last. Your size or fit selection has meant that instead of a black sole, your slipper will be finished with a natural colour full leather sole and heel. Please tick the box to confirm you are happy to proceed without the black sole.

    *Made to Order

    These slippers are a made to order style, with an expected delivery time of up to eight weeks. Please tick the box to let us know you are happy to proceed.
