  1. Okay, those slippers look incredible. Who doesn’t love comfortable slippers with an actual sole. Especially as a dog owner who will occasionally have to step outside onto the back deck while trying to coax the pups back into the house…

  3. I need those slippers! They look amazing! My husband and I bought matching Grinch pajamas this year for Christmas. We’re going over to a friend’s house this year, and I’ve been totally struggling with a gift for his son. Buying gifts for adults is difficult! But you’ve certainly given me some ideas here. The slippers may be perfect for him too.
