SWEET! Now this is my kind of style...but are they soft and warm and quiet? Made in U.S.A. $29.95 Actually I never wear slippers almost always bare feet...if I get cold I put on socks but this past week I wished I had some kind of thick padded protection on the hardwood floors and something styling. We went out looking for slippers tonight and everything we saw..."Made in China". At one point a sales rep asked me, "Why can't it be made in China?". I was very happy to tell her exactly why. I think I left her all depressed and without a sale...So tonight I thought I'd see if anybody in Canada or U.S.A. was making slippers...saving on transportation-good for the environment...and avoiding giving money to a country with seriously compromised ethics. Here is what I found so far...
Made in Canada, $59.00.
Isn't there something that lies between these two extremes...warm sexy and soft? Apparently not. In order for slippers to be soft on the feet they seen to be ugly...
Made in Canada. What is the obsession with this brown colour for slippers? Can't they get dyed a vibrant colour? $82.00 Cdn.
Almost as ugly as "Uggs"...$52.00.
Baby caca coloured slippers...but kind of cute if you're an elf...$79.95.
Well this is not impossible...at least the colour is getting there...Purple suede slippers lined with fleece. $33.95.
I actually think these are funny, even affectionate...I might go for these...sock monkeys for me, stags for Stagg? Only $24.95 but waiting to find out if they are Made in U.S.A. or not? What are the chances they are made out of organic cotton or wool?
