The name slipper relates to the action of slipping them on. They are often made using moccasin construction, where the shoe is made from a single piece of leather that stretches all around the foot. This seamless method allows for little or no extra sole to be required, making them extremely supple and lightweight. The lack of a fastening also adds to the ease of wear as they can slip on and off the foot easily.
Our Herring slippers range from the more formal 'house shoe' style above that is handmade in the UK from velvet with soft linings and hand embroidered crest, to simple warm lined mules from Spain.
