If you’ve noticed us promoting velvet slippers a lot recently, then you shouldn’t be surprised that we’re highlighting the company that does it as well or better than anyone else out there. With almost 17 years in the business, Stubbs and Wootton has really hit their stride by offering an array of velvet slippers, needlepoint slippers, and loafers that ought to satisfy anyone with enough flair to put a pair on. Their collection has everything from classic crests to skull and crossbones. That ought to give you the idea that while they understand that the velvet slipper is something classic and elegant, it is also something that most people shouldn’t wear too seriously.
Their tongue-in-cheek approach is something welcome in the game of footwear, as we have seen Barker Black really capitalize off of this style as well. This has also helped them bring the slipper into the 21st century, as most people regard it as a stuffy high-society formal shoe. So have fun and let loose, pick up a pair of slippers and show a little ankle. And if none of their styles are for you, then head to their bespoke section and pick from a variety of syles, monograms, and motifs that aren’t offered in the current collection.
