As parents we spend all day on our feet, running around at home after our children or taking them here there and everywhere to keep them entertained. At the end of a long busy day there’s nothing I enjoy more than relaxing on the sofa and putting my feet up. My feet are more tired and achy at the end of each day at the moment as I’m pregnant so I often slip off my shoes and wish I had something comfy and cosy to pop my feet into. Thanks to the team at the Soak & Sleep I do now! When they contacted me and asked if I’d like to choose something to review from their website I was instantly drawn to their Sheepskin Slippers. My feet are without a doubt the coldest part of my body – just ask my husband who I poke with them in bed… – so keeping them cosy was really important. I was very excited when these gorgeous slippers landed behind my door.
Just looking at them makes my feet feel cosy. They are sheepskin lined throughout, as well as the decorative band on the top. They are VERY cosy and my feet are nice and warm when I’m wearing them. I was a little worried at the fact they had no backs to them though. Other backless slippers and shoes I’ve tried tend to flap about and are something of a hazard on stairs. These fit snugly and comfortably and can be worn without worry all day if I’m at home. They have a sturdy sole which, whilst not suitable for continued outdoor use, can safely make trips to the bin or on down the path in the garden.
The slippers come in three sizes – small which is a size 3.5, medium which is a 5.5 and large which is a 7.5. I have size 5 feet but sometimes wear a 6 so the mediums were an ideal fit for me. At £30 they are not the cheapest slippers you’ll ever buy, but the snuggly New Zealand fleece will probably make these the last slippers you’ll ever buy. I’m sure there are plenty parents who’d enjoy finding these under the tree on Christmas morning. Best make sure you write your letters to Santa in time too!
