I need some very warm and toasty slippers with good grips on the bottom, that I could go out and put the rubbish bins out in, that aren't more than £40, that will last for ever and are a bit funky and don't look like granny bobble slippers.
If it doesn't go against your ethical principles try "Just Sheepskin". I have the ones with rubber soles and they have lasted two years so far still going strong, don't smell and are totally cosy! Worth every penny!
I have these from Toast. They are comfy and toasty warm They have a proper sole and good grip.
They are so comfy and toasty that the other morning, as I climbed into the car about to do school run, I looked down to find them still attached to my feet . Oh the shame!! Thank feck I noticed them before getting to school.......in my defence I have had a LOT on my mind recently
I was going to recommend Haflinger as I have some and they are super comfy, warm, good sole (and I have actually driven to pick up my children from nursery still wearing them but they look quite shoe like - I couldn't find my exact pair online as they are 3 years old now). However, most of them are mule style I'm afraid.
I am convinced that paying more for slippers is actually a bargain in the long run, as long as they are good quality. Buying cheap which have to be replaced every few months is a false economy, imo. Mine are now almost a year old and still look brand new. You would be hard-pressed to get holes in the Toast slippers
Wish I had got the boot version though......perhaps an addition to my christmas list??
