I know, I know. They’re duvet slippers and they’re ugly.
They’re duvets! For your FEET!
Now I know for a fact that any of you fellow cold-feet-sufferers have just done a double take and oooh-ed excitedly.
Because we cold-feet-sufferers know full well that in the quest for warmth, looks will just slide down the priority scale a little.
I have a pair of these babies, and I can firmly assure you that they are nonsensically soft. And the softness is all round your feet – so important. Often the big padded slippers are actually padded on the sides with a silly thin undersole (why? That’s exactly where you need the warmth most!), but not these little boots of comfort. Oh no. You get the duvet all around your feet – underneath too.
Even though they have non-slip-bobbled soles I have a sneaky feeling they won’t last long if you wear them to wander all over the house (though perfectly adequate for quick wee or kettle trips). But I keep mine safely in the living room for those curled up evenings when I find myself firmly tucking my toes under the ever-stoic (and warm-blooded) husband’s thighs in an effort to generate some life back into their cold deadness.
And now the duvet slippers are in the John Lewis sale
and I’m snapping up a second pair to keep under my desk (WHY do my feet get so cold sitting here?). I mean come on – they’re under a fiver!
Foot duvets for feet. Genius, I say. Even if they are ugly.
