Winter brings a number of inherent challenges with it, cold feet around the house being one of them. We've never really been slipper people, but we think that has more to do with finding a slipper that fits the bill for our needs and taste rather than just an overall dislike. However, we came across the Glerups, which are ingeniously constructed out of felt, and think they might have swayed our opinion the other way. Style wise they're obviously a hit, they happen to be water proof but still breathable, foot sweat and body oils cannot penetrate the fibres meaning they won't stink, and they can be cleaned entirely without the use of soap or detergent. We've posted a picture of their ankle boot as it's our personal favourite, but they do come in a wide variety of styles. You can learn more here, and if you're the Vancouver area, our friends at Walrus carry them. You really must try a pair on.
