    Doesn't really have to be velvet, but same style is Shipton and Henage, Del Toro etc

    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)
