Fox Houndsmore Check Albert Slippers
The Merchant Fox has combined the Houndsmore Check from Fox Brothers with a quintessentially British hand-lasted Albert slipper with a leather sole.
Made in Norfolk by a shoemaker whose shop has been on the same site for over 130 years, each slipper is moulded onto a last to ensure comfort and also durability so the slipper holds its shape over time.
The pure woollen outer of the slipper is woven in Fox Brother's mill, is complimented by a satin lining.
Only one size 10 available - Limited Edition Cloth Not Available For Remake.
- 100% leather sole
- 100% wool cloth upper
- Satin lined
- Other sizes available on request
- Please use a protecting shoe spray if intending to wear outdoors
In keeping with the traditional way in which slippers and house shoes have always been made, each slipper made for The Merchant Fox is created using an age-old shoe making process that involves hand crafting the fabric upper onto a last to create the slipper shape.
Norfolk has always been well known for shoe making, with evidence that there has been a footwear business operating from the same address in Norwich as far back as 1843.
The pure wool grey flannel for these exquisite slippers is woven by Fox Brothers & Co Ltd. at their mill in the West of England. Established in 1772. Fox has a rich history of producing fine woollen and worsted cloths in Somerset and some of the people involved in the weaving of this extraordinary cloth are the fourth generation of their family to work for Fox Brothers.
