The weather in England right now has turned the corner from autumn chilly to winter cold. We have had our first snows and frost so thick that it has turned the landscape into a winter wonderland. A little over a week ago I was approached by a PR from Clifford James who asked me to review a pair of slippers. Since I was sitting on my sofa, my feet in socks and dreading to put my feet down onto the cold hardwood floors I immediately accepted the offer. The dread of feet on cold floors is very persuasive.
I received the slippers two days later. I was very impressed by the promptness in which they were dispatched. They were exactly what I wanted. Red bootie slippers with a sole hard enough that I could go outside to take the trash out without having to worry about changing into proper shoes. The soles also provided a non-slip surface, which is really nice on wooden floors. The warm faux fur lining in the slippers was also a nice feature.
I immediately slipped the new slippers off and I must admit I have rarely taken them off since I received them. I have even accidentally left the house in them. Twice. Yes, you will get weird stares when you do your weekly grocery shopping in slippers. It was an honest mistake though. They were so comfortable and the bottoms are waterproof so I didn't even realize what shoes I had on until I was halfway down the tinned veggie aisle. Oops.
The slippers provided to me by Clifford James were the Trinny Slippers for Ladies. They retail for £7.50, which I think is a great value for money. Clifford James has a wide variety of other slippers for both ladies and men. I think they would be a great presents during this holiday season.
