    Is it M&S? Always bought them from there but last pair I got was from Next and the quality was shite by comparison. Anywhere else I should try?

    There’ll be a £100+ pair of slippers suggested any moment now.

    Camper ones are good but are a bit pricey (nowhere near a £100 mind). I have found Uniqlo ones are similar and are a fraction of the price so would recommend them.

    That may distract you from your cold feet for a while, but you’ll still want some slippers for when you sneak off afterwards to give the old chap a rinse in a beaker.

    Ive gone through posh ones in <12m.

    Sheepskin lined crocs for me since. Bloody ace. Comfy, indestructible, cheap.

    The beaker’s right by the bed, Shirley?

    Oh SLIPPERS, I misread the title.

    Can’t help you, I haven’t given up on life yet.

    Seriously? My mind is starting to dissolve at the very concept of that. What kind of sick twisted pervert would even think of producing such a thing? 😯

    Camper Wabi. I have some. Paid about £30 for mine (new ones are £50 full price). First pair of slippers I’ve owned since I was at prep schoool… *drifts off into reverie of Tom Brown’s schooldays*

    ^@ hammyuk if you need hands to put them on, theyre not slippers FFS! 🙄

    You have come to the right place.

    Malvern Rider is your man the STW style guru no less. He will sort you out with some pimp slippers, matching gold thong and nipple tassel set for the ladies.

    I’m not sure what requires more eye bleach, the model or the crocs themselves.

    I like Pavers for the cheaper option. Good, honest, long lasting slipper that look like slippers. Better than M&S or Next from my experience.

    I’ve just been given a pair of Barbour slippers. They are very comfy.

    I’m pretty sure we established beyond ANY doubt that Draper of Glastonbury is the stw go-to purveyor of slippers

    My Eccos are great, my Mahabis were shit. Heel support that doesn’t support the heel, detachable soles that come off easily, and a felt material that looks tatty fast.

    Surely STW has someone who can make a durable nubuck sheepskin lined slipper for < £50 – it would be a winner on the quarterly ‘what slippers’ thread and the ‘what did you last make’ one.

    Clarks sheepskin nubuck ones were ok but needed running repairs to reglue the sole after a year or so. M&S next on list but not optimistic.
    Sheepskin crocs are so Land Rover man it’s unreal!

    I have a rabid and most likely entirely irrational hatred for slippers of all types.

    This.
    Really very very nice. I bought Mrs PP some Uggs a couple of years ago and they’re still basically brand new. She bought me some OF THESE this year. Too warm for summer though. I love the boots too, I’ve got some leather ones that are 4-5 years old and have been worn to death in the winter (And for commuting on the scooter too) and I see no reason they won’t last 10 years. Expensive, yes, but that’ll boil down to under £25/year, so the value is in the longevity…. Like a Chris King headset… 🙂

    I’m wearing Romika Mokasso (what great name ripe for ridicule), very nice. Considering the amount of time I spend at home walking between the study and kitchen they’re doing well.

    I hate slippers, they’re just not slippy enough. Instead I wear wool blend cricket socks at about a fiver a pair. I can do epic skids in them right across our living room floor. I am 46, BTW.

    “marriage is a fancy word for adopting a male child that has grown too big for his actual parents to look after any longer”

    Current wifes Uggs are not even a year old and although in one piece are pretty worn out. She wants another pair and I am still reeling from the cost from last year.
    From my perception on slippers, both M&S and Next are crap. Last 3 months on me. Bought furry crocs and although never fell apart, after 6 months of visible static shocking the family and pets, felt they were not brilliant, although running a copper wire under the heal to the sole, did help. It was too dangerous to turn lights on of the tv. I am wearing leather moccasins off fleabay at £15 ish a pair and want a new pair for Xmas , as a year old now.

    +1 for Camper Wabi. Comfy and like the rubber sole for brief excursions to take the bins out etc.

    A carpet and some heating on solves the need…

    I’m a big slipper fan, most only last a few months before they stink to high heaven (I wear them bear feet) but I bought a pair of these THESE in June

    And they have been great, they still smell of leather, a minor miracle (second bible reference), I see they now do a fleece lined version so I might put it on the Xmas list (third reference), I believe they are a gift from above at the price (fourth… 😉

    I’ve got some Homeys that are easily 10 years old and still going strong, not smelly or anything, comfy, have proper soles for going outside with the bin bag or whatever. The wife kept nicking them and eventually bought her own which was AAAAAA I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M TALKING ABOUT WHAT SLIPPERS ARE THE BEST OH GOD KILL ME NOW
