    ok, let me get this straight, you want velvet slippers, but you want them to be cheap?

    I can't justify paying over $600 for them.

    Zara had some cheap ones last season I believe. If you are near a Century 21, they have a tons of those Tom Ford ones up for sale.

    unfortunately I am not. They do have an online store but it requires an invite? Are you a member?

    These are Shipton's. They have my monogram and they were $450 or so MTO. They send you a drawing with your initials to approve along with a sample shoe to be sure the fit is right before completing the final slippers. You can get them in a variety of colors.

    I'd recommend Broadlands, if you do a search you find some threads about them. I have a pair and am quite pleased - much nicer than Del Toro when I compared them.

    Another alternative is Herring, £113 ex. VAT (which you won't have to pay since you're ordering to the US)
