I want to like velvet slippers. It seems that most people I respect around the workplace have them in their closet. They make for great formal shoes but most of the versions I've seen have crazy embroideries or monograms that are not my own. I've always wondered why someone would want to promote somebody other than themselves by wearing a logo or another person's initials.
Today I discovered DelToro Shoes which produces a clean, plain black velvet slipper for $120. For a small additional fee they also do custom monograms and embroideries so that you can advertise yourself, not Ralph.
