Shoe prices

I felt that I should explain my reasons for the pricing of my shoes. I know, through research, that smoking slippers vary widely in terms of price and this is usually down to the materials used. Baukjen for example is stocking very similar shoes in very similar colours, for over £100 a pop. However, these are leather, from a well known brand, which means they can charge a premium. New Look, at the other end of the spectrum, are stocking smoking slippers, which cost only £15. They are in quite drab colours though and you can be pretty sure the materials aren’t exactly high end. 

My shoes are all under £100, but are at the top end of that price range. This is because shoes in larger sizes are by their very nature more expensive than standard sizes, because they cost more to make. I am also importing them from the States, which is costing a fair amount. Both Kingston & Camden are well made, solid shoes and I think they are worth the £75 & £85 I’m asking for them. It remains to be seen though, if my customers (or prospective customers) agree with me.
