Would You Wear … Velvet Shoes?

Every year, fashion designers and editors try to make velvet happen, which is fine. A velvet dress really does look smashing at a holiday party, after all. And this season everyone is trying to turn the men’s slipper into the new ballet flat, which is a little weird, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea. The natural culmination of these two trends is the velvet men’s slipper flat for women, shown here in a royal purple hue. The combo is getting a little too Hugh Hefner-y for my tastes, but what about you? Would you wear ‘em?
