More Information

It was such a joy to rip up the rule book for our made to order slippers, and never have we done so more than with these black velvet embroidered Venetian slippers. Borne out of a conversation during a business trip to London, we had a lot of fun creating the original paint splatter design with real paint before designing this embroidered pair.

While it may seem that you finally have a pair of something smart to do your DIY in, we believe they’ll do just as well out in public, and with the rubber sole, they’re perfect for outdoor wear.

ALL ABOUT THE 2002
The 2002 is a contemporary mid-height round tongue, paying homage to the flamboyant masquerade balls of 16th Century Venice. The 2002 features 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. With suede or leather binding and a leather lining, the 2002 is an ideal slipper with a rubber sole, that is equally appropriate at home or outside as a day loafer. 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.
