How Hard Can It Be?  
Well, sadly, my furry yeti feet slippers have seen their last chunk of time. The soles are worn through, big ol' holes in the bottoms. This really sucks, because I love these things (hell, I've had them for around 10 years!), but I suppose it's time for something new.

The problem here is that finding cool slippers seems to be harder than I thought. See, these are big furry feet, not just weenie little house-shoes or something. They're easily the size of high-top basketball shoes, cover the foot (around the back of the ankle, too), covered in shaggy brown fur. Warm as you could want, comfy, and weird looking. The closest I've found are some I saw at Spencer's the other day, and they were size 5-7, which isn't anywhere NEAR close enough to fit my size 12 feet. Used to be they had lots of cool slippers during the winter season...well, dammit, it's only 34 degrees here, break 'em out!

Googling gets me all kinds of thing...none of which is what I'm looking for; either they are children's slippers or they are some foofy something or other...and don't ever bother putting "novelty" and "adult" in the same Google search, or you'll get loads of links you don't want to open at work, if you follow me.

I've seen some that were the same as the plush Cthulhu I have, but the heads are facing me, not the outside world...meaning they look dumb to anyone else seeing them. Cool, but no. I've also seen some with the same heads on them as the Bunny With Sharp Pointy Teeth (Monty Python), and facing outwards, but they were $40...a wee bit more than I want to spend on slippers.

So, if you happen to see any really cool or bizarre, let me know and/or link me. A few guidelines:
- they have to cover the foot (no mules, essentially)
- nothing you have to put your foot into the mouth of a character
- any heads must face outwards
- preferably something 'foot-like'

i just put my slippers on after coming in from the 32 degree outside and i thought to myself how much i LOVE them. They're pink and fluffy and very comfortable. My feet actually end up getting *too* warm after a while. i'm pretty sure i got them at Meier and Franks a few years ago.

Good luck finding new ones! :)

Those would be perfect...if I knew what size they were.
The Cynic: Last Lookdiscordian on January 5th, 2005 09:02 pm (UTC)

Available in XS,S,M,L,XL. And you could probably just take a ride down to JC Penny and try them on.

Oh, that site actually gives the numeric sizes too. Boom! Consider yourself hooked up.

CRAP, "item unavailable"! I'll keep looking, though...there's a Penney's near me.

Re: Out of Stock :(
See, I'd get those in a heartbeat, if the heads faced outward.

it's slipper fever season
I'm no help, just thought I'd throw up a link to the custom slippers that my good buddy </a></b></a>tomveil got for Christmas.
They meow when he walks :O
I wish you well on your slipper quest!

Pretty cool...it may be down between those and some Yeti Feet linked above...

If those slippers look like what I think they do (since Methuss has bear slippers and I have Godzilla slippers), I'd be able to fix the bottoms for you. :>

It wouldn't surprise me, actually, with your skills. On the other hand, there's a link above to some new ones that look really spiffy...and after 10 years, it may be time to retire these, regardless.
Duchess Webbduchess_webb on January 6th, 2005 02:02 am (UTC)
Oh... alrighty. If you change your mind, I wouldn't mind fixing them for you.

On the other hand.... I WANT THESE!!!

Yeah, you and me both...I love those, but I don't want to pay $35 for slippers.
Duchess Webbduchess_webb on January 6th, 2005 02:09 am (UTC)
For special ones like those, I'd consider it... or at least request them for a birthday gift idea.

Damn yours lasted this long. The pair we got me died several years ago. Hope you find new ones that are just as comfy.

Me too...Isaac linked me some really sweet ones, above, but they're out of stock.
