What I thought: I've been wearing these slippers for a while now. I get so many compliments when other people see them. They are small and easily fit in a suitcase for overnight stays at hotels or relatives. I got stopped in an elevator once, because two women were admiring my slippers on the way to breakfast. Too funny! That tells you how cute they really are.

These shoes are really comfortable too. I like that I have a nice, soft slipper to walk on at home without all the warmth that most slippers have. They are great to use in the summer especially, or even the rest of the year when slippers make your feet too hot.

Although my mom said she could wear these outdoors, I would not. The only reason is I don't think they have enough padding/support on the bottom to wear outside. I keep mine as house slippers. But they are great ones that I highly recommend. These are one of the best new products I've had in a while! And they'd be a great Christmas gift for that special lady in your life.

Where to buy: You can find these in various stores and online.
