Ugh, the UGG slippers I’ve been wearing for years have taken a toll on my feet. I loved them at first but after a long time, my gait changed, I found my left foot turned out more, the arch hurt, I was just plain uncomfortable in them.
I bought new liners thinking that would help. No. I bought a couple other pair of UGG slippers to see if that would address the problem. No.
So I started the hunt, the hunt for good comfortable slippers but ones that made me feel more like being barefoot. I love being barefoot and they say it’s the best way to walk around, it’s all natural for the feet to be naked. But I DO like my tootsies to be warm, hence my daytime housefrau look is to be in my UGGS.
I bought Isotoner slippers, two pair at Kohl’s, buy one, get the second one half off. I know why. I couldn’t wear them for more than ten minutes without being miserable. They’ve gone back to the store.
Online at Amazon, I went for the Minnie Mouse effect, buying these highly rated Super Soft slippers with a non-slip bottom.
Not only do I look stupid as hell in them, and I mean embarrassingly stupid as hell, they aren’t remotely comfortable and the rubber non-skid bottom creaks and intermittently sticks while you walk. No way. I can’t send them back because I’ve worn them so maybe I’ll use them as a furniture duster.
Then I tried the Little Boo Beep look, my Baa Baa Baa white sheep Acorn slippers. I’m just missing my staff for the complete ha ha ha factor. They are too big and too wide so my feet kind of slosh around in them. They might fit better if I wore socks with them but really, that’s NOT going to happen. Really.
The only look I haven’t gone for is of the 100-year old, or as they are now referred to, The Hillary Clinton Pneumonia’s, the Silvert brand slippers that seem to have rave reviews such as great for dressing a 91yr old non ambulatory physically challenge ……my 89 year old mother loves them. [As an aside, and no kidding, the Silvert’s website has some amazing products if you do have anyone in the family who needs adaptive clothing or footwear.]
So this leaves me staying barefoot and pregnant or hoping you have a suggestion. My dogs are hurting and I need something.
