Inspired by the many versions of slippers worn along the Silk Road. Uppers in the softest Italian suede, lined in sumptuous duchess silk. Leather sock linings and covered one-inch wooden heel. Oak bark tanned leather soling, insoling, toe puffs and heel top piece. Shaped, breasted heel. Asymmetric toe shape, in a gently turned-up style, with leather toe puffs moulded by hand. This design is a modern-day interpretation of historical influences from around the world - something luxurious to wear while working from home, or to elevate an evening pant-suit, or to lounge in luxury.
