A Brief History of the Smoking Slipper
What goes around comes around. This saying is true in both life and fashion. The trends of yesterday always have a habit of reappearing years down the road, newer and fresher, with a contemporary twist. Occasionally, these trends come to the forefront of the fashion landscape and transform into modern-day classics. And as we all know, the classics never go out of style.
Such can be said for the humble smoking slipper. This style was brought to life in the 1800s, worn by the upper-class as at-home entertaining shoes. A cross between slippers and loafers, this chic, comfortable style made a comeback in the '90s as men's evening shoes, popularized by Gucci's Creative Director, Tom Ford.
Recent years saw the return of the smoking slipper, this time as women's shoes. Designers began breathing new life into the historic style, with bright colors, playful prints, beautiful embroidery, and different textures to create distinct new styles. For some, they became fun statement shoes. For others, they became a brilliant intersection of classic and modern styling - comfortable, versatile, and perfect for work or play.
Here at Naked Feet Shoes, we're inspired by the latter.
