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 Royal Blue Velvet Venetian with Embroidered Pterodactyl is a made to order style, so please expect eight weeks for delivery. Any customised styles are not eligible for refund.
