For more than 150 years, they have been worn by high dignitaries of the English aristocracy, the highest personalities of the English bourgeoisie, and by the city traders at their dinners and social gatherings. Lush and flamboyant, they added that rich, classy, and elegant touch to their beautiful black tuxedo topped with a pretty velvet bow tie. The noise of the slamming of their leather soles to the ground with each step has only ignited the magic surrounding the myth of this shoe. Nowadays, Opera Pumps has been adopted by fashion buffs and taken over by almost every menswear brand. At PHIL ROYCE, we offer those mythic shoes in several colors and fabrics; leather, suede and velvet.
