Black Velvet Albert Slippers with Monogrammed Bow

£440.00

The Black Velvet Albert slipper with Monogrammed bow is a whole cut loafer made from one single piece of velvet, with a traditional square tongue. The style is an extension of our bow slippers, which are a striking pairing for white tie and evening wear.

Finished with a striking black leather sole.

Made by hand in our Norwich workshop where we have been making footwear since 1874. Our skilled artisans continue to maintain many of the original shoemaking practices such as clicking, turning and lasting all by hand.

More Information

Named after Queen Victoria’s consort, Prince Albert (who famously commissioned them to wear inside their many royal residences), Albert slippers today are loved by men and women alike, with all our styles unisex and available to order on two different last shapes.

Finally for the most daring among you the option of customised slippers is a must have. Although not full bespoke slippers as we still use our existing last shapes, we give full licence to design your own customised slippers.

Our Albert slippers are a made to order style, so please expect eight weeks for delivery. Any customised styles are not eligible for refund.  

ALL ABOUT THE 2001
The 2001 is one of our most recent styles, designed to launch the exciting new Street Slipper ® collection. Slightly lower in height than the 7033, with a wider opening at the throat to allow for a flat suede or knock-over leather binding, suitable for both the P or K last. All our patterns are clicked by hand before embarking on their journey around the workshop being handmade into our new Street Slippers ® with rubber soles.
