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'
