Is there such a thing as a nice, cool, not disgusting slipper?

I like wearing slippers as I get cold feet but my god they're hideous.

For less than £30 please.

lol .

What size are you?

puglife15 Thu 22-Sep-16 04:00:06

Like a 5-6?

Great post time btw

Slippers are supposed to be naff, embrace it. What next, sexy onesies grin?

Bedroom Athletics have some nice bootee style ones. I like sheepskin bootees myself, but they cost more than £30 unfortunately..

See I quite like those paxillin. I just hate the cutesy fluffy pink stuff.

paxillin Thu 22-Sep-16 15:12:53

grin problem solved then. Warm, classy, easily identified as yours and a steal at £14 at ASOS.

Haha. Burger feet here I come.

Not particularly stylish but if you have cold feet...I give you MICROWAVE SLIPPERS

Best Thing Ever. Really! I have Raynauds so my toes are always icy and painful, I love my microwave slippers. I'm evangelical. In case you can't tell grin

I agree with Paxillin - embrace the naff.

My feet get darn cold in the winter, the year before last I discovered the joy of bootie slippers (Rudolph ones received as a Christmas gift...wore them until spring).

Bought myself a replacement pair of purple furry/fleecy ones in the M&S sale last year.

Real wool is what you need. I am currently sporting Ugg slippers but they are madly expensive (I got them with an amazing offer). Costco have lovely mens loafer stylee ones in at the moment for peanuts, I got some for DH. If I had bigger feet I'd buy some for me!

DH bought me Mahabis for my birthday but I can't give up my Uggs. They are SO warm!

MoonlightMojitos Thu 22-Sep-16 19:39:30

I just get boot ones from next... this pair were £16. Not at all attractive but soooo warm!

Justputyourshoesonnow Thu 22-Sep-16 20:24:49

I have these pure wool slippers by Haflinger. So warm... Loads of designs... Cherries, cats, dogs... J want them all!

I have the leopard print Leona ones from Moshulu, very comfy but relatively stylish too. Accidentally went shopping in them the other day and got away with it as they look like ordinary flats.

Slippers are the only time Uggs are acceptable as footwear - get Uggs

I have some Mahabis. Not cheap. It super comfortable, very warm and not so naff.

Only1scoop Mon 26-Sep-16 04:41:33

I like the Liberty ones in Uniqlo

puglife15 Tue 27-Sep-16 10:34:27

I do like the mahabis but can't justify the price when I know they'll probably get destroyed by my children in some way... Ditto Uggs, I can't spend £100 on shoes I don't love.

The moshulu ones are fairly tasteful.

I've just bought these and they are absolutely gorgeous - they are probably too lovely to wear actually blush

Can't wait for the cold weather now!

I've had those Moshulu ones and yes, they do look more like shoes but they're not that warm because they're not made of natural fibre. Same with all the fluffy bootie styles; polyester just doesn't bring warmth.
I wear the bootie ones from Celtic & Co at the moment, which are pretty fugly but they're hella cosy and last a coulle of years - plus have a hard sole so you can nip out to the bins in them.
Those ones I think Flump linked to look good though - might splash out!

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Tue 27-Sep-16 11:09:09

Forgot to say Ruby and Ed have some pretty ones, but again the linings are all polyester faux fur so they just don't insulate in the same way wool does. Also rather flimsy underfoot, the ballet style at least.

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Tue 27-Sep-16 11:12:43

I suppose you could buy a bigger size and add a sheepskin insole.

I bought these snuggly velvet ones from Boden a couple of years ago in purple and green. Lots of colours on offer. I'd suggest go a size smaller though or they can slip. They are lovely and lined with a really soft filling. http://m.boden.co.uk/en-gb/womens-nightwear/slippers/ar794-nud/womens-milkshakeivory-velvet-bow-slipper?cmm_mmc=PLAGooglegle_--Shopping-_-Product&istCompanyId=a40e1fa1-0635-4a1b-8d9a-2caa763eeee2&istItemId=xxrixiltqq&istBid=wzit&gclid=CIqFkKOor88CFRAz0wod87AEwg
