More Information

All our Venetian Slipper styles are unisex and available to order on two different last shapes.

For those who prefer to make a statement then our hand embroidered slippers are for you. All of our embroidery is stitched by hand, specialising in the ancient craft of Gold Work.

The Street Slipper ® is a new concept to add to the Bowhill & Elliott story. With the Albert slipper steeped in history, starting life as a house shoe before becoming the must have choice of footwear for parties and evening wear, we have seen this timeless classic evolve once again. With demand for our slippers to be worn as day loafers we introduced the rubber sole for durability. Suede uppers and leather lining make for a more conventional whole cut loafer, or request any of our velvet options to be made as a Street Slipper ® with a rubber sole for the more daring.

Our Black Velvet Venetian Slippers with Ram’s Head is a made to order style, so please expect eight weeks for delivery. Any customised styles are not eligible for refund.

ALL ABOUT THE 1301
The 1301 is a contemporary mid-height round tongue, playing homage to the flamboyant masquerade balls of 16th Century Venice. Paired with quilt lining and fabric binding for a sophisticated look. All our patterns are clicked by hand before embarking on their journey around the workshop being handmade into our signature velvet slippers.
