- Best quality slippers?
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.Posted 4 years ago

Ugg, got some last christmas, very nice (this post means I am now, officially, a sad old man)
Ugg slippers are really good. Nothing like the boots

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… 🙂tangMember
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.Posted 4 years ago
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.

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.Posted 4 years ago
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.2unfit2rideSubscriber
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… 😉Posted 4 years agomintimperialSubscriber
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 NOWPosted 4 years ago
