Warm toasty toes!
on 27 December 2008
I bought a pair of these from Center Parcs back in November 08. I always have cold feet and being a lover of all things purple, I couldn't resist these funky slipper boots!
The box states 'fits up to a size 9'. I'm a size 8 and these fit fine even with thick socks. They are only sold as a one size item so they may be a bit big if you have little feet!
The slipper boots come with two microwaveable wheat bags (scented with strawberry and vanilla). These insert into pockets on the tops of the toes. I haven't yet used the wheat bags in the boots as I've found them to be warm enough to wear them without. Incidently, the wheat bags haven't gone to waste as I swapped them for the unscented wheat bag in my microwavable teddy and use them in him instead!
The boots are made of a fluffy purple/magenta and white fur and are lined with white fleece. The soles are white with those little bobbly rubber grips.
The slipper boots go about 5-6 inches up your ankle and stay in place with elastic, which is great as it stops them slipping down and they are long enough to tuck your PJs into!
The slipper boots are machine washable. I was worried they would 'felt' in the wash but they came out looking the same as they went in.
The boots themselves are not microwaveable but the wheat bags come with full instructions on the labels so no need to keep the box.
I would definitely buy a second pair if these were ever to wear out - which may be sooner than I hope as my sister keeps wearing them!
