I never heard of "smoking slippers" until I realized I was supposed to replace my ballet flats with this footwear. Allegedly Kate Moss popularized ballet flats in 2003 but now the flats have been replaced with these "slippers".
Kate Moss/Black suede smoking slippers Topshop $56
They look a lot like loafers but not PENNY loafers.
How about some preppy needlepoint slippers?
What do you think? Do you like this footwear as opposed to ballet flats or penny loafers?
