N° 70WL details

No. 70 WL follows in the footsteps of traditional slip-on shoes. Unlike its predecessor, the moccasin, this Blake-stitched women’s loafer in black velvet boasts a separate outsole and heel. These features not only make this loafer significantly more suitable for everyday wear, but also make it a bit more comfortable than traditional Native American footwear. This model also hearkens back to Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband—he commissioned its design, as he desired a pair of light slippers that he could wear in Buckingham Palace.

Sophisticated women’s loafer in black velvet

This women’s loafer in black velvet has been handcrafted by master shoemakers in Tuscany. Its upper consists of the finest velvet, while its lining and insole are made from premium calfskin. The heel and outsole are also made from leather, and are complemented by a thin, protective rubber outsole. Thanks to this sole, this black slip-on shoe ensures firm footing, even on slick surfaces. This women’s loafer in black velvet has Blake construction to thank for its light weight and flexibility. Blake construction is a production method that involves stitching the outsole to the shaft directly through the insole.

No. 70 WL should primarily be reserved for informal occasions, or, like its famous predecessor, be worn inside the home. That being said, this women’s loafer in black velvet is also perfectly suitable for casual events held outside of the household.

Loafer

Loafer

These light, flexible slip-on shoes were invented at the turn of the 20th century and are considered offshoots of moccasins. Loafers also feature a thin leather outsole and a heel.

Elegant Last

Elegant Last

Gently rounded towards the toe, with a toe box that rises slightly from the ground. This last lies close to the foot at the instep, and is of an average width at the middle. Significantly narrower than the classic last, the elegant last is recommended for average and low insteps.

Velvet

Velvet

Our velvet comes from a traditional Italian company that specialises in premium textiles. This finely-woven, fully-dyed material impresses with a soft, napped surface. Dab away small stains with a damp cloth—tackle stubborn ones with a suede brush or a shoe cleaning block.

Italian Line

Italian Line

The models in this collection are the products of traditional Tuscan handicraft. These dreamy, Blake-stitched shoes are made from the finest leathers, and boast truly stylish designs. 100% made in Italy.

General information about our women's loafers

Blake Construction

Blake Construction

A special Langhorn sewing machine is used to stitch directly through the outsole, insole, and bottom edge of the shoe shaft, combining the three. As a result, Blake-stitched shoes are extremely lightweight, flexible, and comfortable.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant red shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Furthermore, it is easy to grab, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a few thoughtful details.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
