Where to find nice slippers?

I'm looking for nice slippers.
Not cheap ones, not childish ones, not in the shape of animals, not slipper-socks, not slipper-boots, not Dynasty-style-glamour-heels-with-pompoms.... just nice slippers, maybe ballet style but not necessarily.
There seem to be none around this side of Christmas.
Any suggestions?

I've bought the velvet ones in pink and I may get some for my mum too.

Which ones did you go for in the end?

Swiddle Wed 09-Jan-13 13:19:43

Mumsnetters, I love you. Thank you smile

I have gone for some birkenstocks, which can be worn with or without socks (so are good in the summer) and don't look too slipperish - suede cloggish ones, not sandals

Ruby and Ed - lovely. And they have a sale on atm.

Thanks for your advice re: size. I am glad this thread was started - I have been looking for slippers all week.

Muji have lovely plain grey felt slippers with a fleecy lining - cosy but grown up.

I love the Ruby and Ed ones in velvet too........... I felt better with the larger size too

SilverSixpence - can you tell me where you found the 10% off at Lakeland please?

SilverSixpence Wed 09-Jan-13 07:44:47

I would go for the bigger size, I'm normally a 6 but found them a bit tight so exchanged for a 7. But I'm also pregnant and think my feet may have grown a bit shock

Those Ruby & Ed velvet ones - can anyone tell me if they run large? I'm usually a 4 but occasionally a 3...

I got mine from Boden. They are like ballet shoes, but velvet with a bow on the front with proper suede soles so should last me. They are Fab-u-lous, and Boden have 10% off at the mo.

Swiddle - I too have been looking for slippers that fit that description - most of the ones I've seen are awful.

Thanks silversixpence those are the slippers I was after from Inisonline. £10.00 cheaper !

SilverSixpence Tue 08-Jan-13 22:12:35

I bought the Ruby and Ed velvet slippers from Lakeland Leather they are half price so cheaper than elsewhere, I found a 10% code as well and their customer service is amazing. The slippers are gorgeous too.

What about The White Company? Lovely, cosy and in the sale grin

I'm loving my white stuff slippers-they are booties but they have other styles I believe.

Haflinger- they are super warm/ comfy and non slip

kerstina Tue 08-Jan-13 20:19:36

Have a look at Innis online there are a few nice slippers on there including some beautiful velvet slippers.

Moshulu I have the Bo ones they are as cosy and comfy as any I have every tried, love them.

I really like the sheepskin ones from Hush, they keep my feet cosy. Alternatively Uggs.
M&S usually do nice ones online.
