Perhaps the most formal of all slippers, it’s believed the modern Pump – sometimes referred to as an Opera Pump – was popularised in the early 19th century by ‘The Original Gentleman of Style', Beau Brummell. It was he who removed the traditional silver buckle seen on the vamp of earlier slippers and replaced it with a simple black bow; often wearing them with white bow tie and tails as part of his formal evening wear. To our minds, the thin sole and low heel make this shoe a perfect choice for refined, indoor social occasions.
