In this year’s Best of the Best, we continue to honour the brands and people who have continued to create covetable products, even in the midst of a global pandemic. Here, we have John Lobb win the ‘best slippers’ award
As anyone who has conducted a Zoom meeting in bare feet can attest, a well- chosen slipper makes most any at-home outfit feel a good deal smarter. And when it comes to domestic footwear, it doesn’t get much smarter than John Lobb’s. Its Knighton mule is built on a form-fitting last and constructed with almost no stitching to have plenty of give. Cashmere-suede uppers, smooth calfskin lining and padded soles push them into decadent territory. Even with such abject cosiness, John Lobb’s slippers don’t sacrifice finesse. Consider them the executive’s answer to Uggs.
