British brand Herring Shoes has excelled in producing premium handcrafted footwear once again with a collaboration with the Fox Bros Mill to create a tweed truly unique to Herring Shoes.
The latest style to be introduced to the collection is the Herring Balmoral, which is a house shoe. The Herring Balmoral carries the Herring crest, which is hand embroidered using a gold bullion wire. The lining is Burgundy quilted with a full leather sole and heel.
The Herring Balmoral joins the existing Herring Monarch in creating a slipper collection that is of exceptional quality, matching the premium standards that Herring Shoes are renowned for.
The Herring Monarch is a classic velvet slipper hand made in England. Featuring a luxurious quilted lining and hand embroidered â€˜Herring Crest,â€™ this style of slipper is often referred to as the Albert after being favoured by Queen Victoriaâ€™s consort. These slippers became acceptable footwear for wearing with dinner jackets at home or at ones club, and remain so today. They are also credited with being a forebear of the loafer, or at least helping towards its social acceptance. Fit for a King or the man with an appreciation for the finer things in life.
