We had, over a period of years, many discussions about these slippers. My view is: minimal, simple, really great for travel as they compact easily, very warm, comfortable, easy to get around in, neutral, simple slide on and off. The other view was: unsexy, rough, too simple and dare I say, middle age. I had to ask in turn, what does one want from a slipper? Hello, this is not a high heel! Made in small quantities in Sweden, the perfect indoor slipper, with a capital P. Mine are on my feet from October 1-May 1, just like off-season. To start we are offering them in a very neutral and unsexy grey and a somewhat sexier but not overly sexy deep red. The bottom is coated in a thin rubber for some traction but the slipper easily folds up. One feels contact with the floor but stays warm. Keep the heating low and the slippers on!
