“ Brand: Ikea „
had no idea that Ikea even sold slippers but when I was there in November buying some furniture I saw a big display with them and couldn't believe the price of £3. After having a look at them I was even more shocked with the price as they felt just as nice as some slippers which I have had before which cost me much more money.
It was only when I went to the till and handed over my Ikea family card that I found out that for members they are only £2 so they were even cheaper. I thought they were such good value that I loaded up my furniture in my car and went back in to buy several pairs for some family and friends.
The slippers come in a few different colours for men and women and in s/m and l/xl sizes. I just guessed and bought the men the larger ones and the women the smaller ones. Because the slippers are backless it doesn't matter so much about the size having to be absolutely perfect as you push your foot right in to them when wearing them.
The slippers are made from a soft terry fabric and feel really nice to the touch and they feel comfortable on my feet. The soles on them are made of rubber which is perfect for wearing around the house with wooden floors to stop slipping and also it means that you can wear them to go outside to hang the washing or put something in the bins.
I have washed them a couple of times and they have washed up brilliantly and retained their colour and their softness. Everyone who I gave a pair to have liked them and also commented on that they can't believe that they were so cheap.
I normally wouldn't be so quick to rave about a pair of slippers but because they were only £2 I feel that I got an absolute bargain with them and I was more excited to show people my bargain when I got home than any of the furniture that I had bought.
I love shopping at Ikea and will always end up buying something even if it is a few bowls or glasses as they do some lovely bright and unusual items which you can't get anywhere else, or even a pair of slippers. I have bought a few pairs of these Njuta slippers and currently have them in black and purple but they also come in orange, pink and navy blue. The normal price is £3 which is very reasonable but if you have an 'Ikea family card' then you can actually get them for £2 which I did. The Ikea family card gives you benefits such as extra discounts and invitations to special members events and promotions, a quarterly magazine and a even a free cup of coffee.
The slippers come in just two sizes which are small to medium which I would say fit sizes 3 to 6 and large to extra large which I would say fits 6 to 10 and are unisex. I am a size 5 and the small to medium fit me perfectly. They have a flat sole and are slip ons with a closed front and they are very easy to get on and off. They are quite wide and the toe is rounded so there is plenty of room for my feet without them feeling constricted or tight. They are made of 100 per cent polyester but they have a towelling look and feel and are soft to the touch. I will always wear mine with bare feet and they keep my feet nice and cosy without them becoming too warm.
A good think about these slippers is that you can wash them so if they become a bit smelly or dirty if you go outside in them this will prolong their wear. I have not had cause to wash mine as I will always change into some other shoes if I go outside so they have kept quite clean. They have a rubber sole which is quite thin but it still provides enough support to walk in and they are very comfortable to wear. I have worn them all year round as they are backless so the air can circulate around your feet, but they also keep your feet warm in the cold weather. They are easy to kick off when you are sitting down but as I only wear them in the house I will often keep them on when I am sitting with my feet curled underneath me on the sofa.
I think that these are a great pair of slippers and even at £3 they are a super buy and I would recommend a trip to Ikea to buy them!
My favourite thing about winter is that I get to get out all my cosy and comfy clothes again and one of my favourite items is slippers. I absolutely adore them and love getting back in the house after being outside and getting into my pj's or a onsie and putting some slippers or fluffy socks on.
I own a ridiculous amount of slippers, more than one person really needs but I can never resist a bargain which is how I ended up with a pair Njuta slippers from Ikea. They are only £3 but as I am a member of Ikea Family I got them for the bargain basement price of £2 so even though I didn't need them I couldn't resist.
There was a few different colours available but I went for a girly pink colour and I really like the colour as it is nice and bright and perfect for cheering me up in the depths of winter.
These slippers are much better than they should be considering how cheap they were. They have a rubber sole and are made from a towelling material which is really soft and snug. They are backless which is something that I am not too keen on hence why I haven't worn mine too much as I much prefer slippers which cover my whole feet.
I have only washed the slippers in the machine once but they came out well and dried soft and fluffy again which I was impressed with because I thought they might not wash well considering how cheap they were.
These slippers are pretty basic but they look nice and feel nice too. They haven't got the thickest of soles so I wouldn't want to wear them outside but if you like backless slippers then for £2 (or£3 even) these are a great buy and because they don't cost the earth you could afford to treat yourself to a few pairs at a time.
I've moved into a lovely new house recently. It has gorgeous wooden floors downstairs, and fluffy creamy carpet upstairs. All in all, it's a beautiful house - and I'm determined to keep it that way, so much so that I've introduced a no shoes upstairs rule, for both family and guests.
However, I don't want to have cold feet, especially at this time of year. And I don't want my friends to have them either. Luckily, as an avid viewer of Asian films, particularly Japanese ones, I already had it in my mind to buy several pairs of slippers for guests, and I picked up several pairs from Ikea, for £2 each. (The normal price is £3, the £2 is with the Ikea family discount).
They're pretty basic slippers. A thin sort of foam rubber sole, covered in a soft fabric, sort of like a low pile towelling fabric, with a flap sown over at the front to keep the toes warm. They come in a variety of colours, as seen pictured above. I have some pink ones for my own personal use, and a 2 pairs in black, and 4 in blue . They only come in two sizes, s/m and m/l - I've colour coded mine, s/m in black, and the m/l in blue.
The slippers are quite flat, enabling me to put all 5 pairs into a small wicker basket in the hall by the door, ready for people to help themselves from as they come in. They're actually very comfy - I take an 8, and naturally I have my own personal pair (l/xl) in pink. My boyfriend would rather like a pair too, but with great big size 14 clodhoppers, he's a little out of luck, and has to patter about in his socks. But most of my other male friends seem to do well with the l/xl size, and most of the girls use either size. I always wear these with socks on too, as being backless they wouldn't keep my whole foot warm. If you didn't wear socks underneath, you may want a more substantial slipper in the winter.
The slippers are also very quiet to walk in -it's actually great fun to sneak up behind people in these slippers, as they can't hear me coming.
I don't think they're particularly sturdy though. I'm not one of those mums that trots to the shops in her Pj's and slippers, but if I was, I don't imagine these would last more than a few trips without showing some damage to the soles. Similarly, I don't imagine these would survive a wash in the machine either, although none of them have really needed it yet. Still, at £2 a pair, it's very cheap to replace these should I need to. It is rather a shame that these can't be purchased through the IKEA website though, but only in store, as a bus trip to my localish IKEA costs more than the slippers themselves. Still, I'll make a point of popping a pair or two into my basket each time I go.
Overall, I think these make very good guest slippers, or indeed everyday slippers if used inside only. It's a shame they don't have sizes suitable for my boyfriends massive feet, but then very few places do - even finding socks is a pain! I don't imagine mine will last forever, but I don't see them falling apart within the first two or three months either, and at £2 a pair, replacing them when they start to get tatty (or even just to get a new colour) isn't expensive at all.
A good value guest slipper - not the most luxurious or stylish, but absolutely fit for purpose.
A cheap impulse
I am sure that most people that have been to an Ikea store have made an impulse purchase - something that seems so cheap it would be rude not to buy it! Well, this pair of very basic slippers was one of mine. I bought mine quite a few years ago now, but according to the Ikea website, these now cost £3 a pair, and are available in five colours - pink, purple, yellow, navy blue and black. If you are a member of the Ikea Family scheme then a pair will set you back just £2. They come in two sizes - S/M and L/XL.
Bright and girlie
As the price would suggest, these are very basic slippers. The fabric is 100% polyester but has the feel of a light towelling material. The ones I have are the pink ones, and they are a very bright and girlie shade of pink indeed! They have a thin, rubbery sole and the towelling style fabric covers the front half of the foot completely, but the back of the foot and the heel is uncovered, mule-style! These fit quite snugly around the foot and don't slip off at all on me - the fabric has a slight stretch to it but they are perfectly comfortable and feel reasonably soft on my feet too.
Not so snug
I must admit I don't wear these slippers that much! As I say, they were an impulse purchase and I tend to wear socks round the house rather than slippers. Also, these aren't exactly snug or cosy slippers - the thin fabric and style of the slipper makes them more of a pair to shuffle around in! In fact I tend to only wear them now when I get out of the shower - they are perfect for padding to my bedroom to get dressed, and they stop my feet getting cold, or from me making wet footprints around the house!
For this they are perfect really, but other than that I tend not to wear them - they aren't really warm or cosy, and although they aren't uncomfortable, they aren't designed for lounging around in I don't think. But for the low price I still would recommend them if you just want a pair of slippers to shuffle around the house in! They are good to protect you from chilly floors, and like I say they are handy for getting out of the shower too. They are cheap and quite practical, so it's four stars from me.
The Njuta slippers are very basic slippers with a flat base and a flap of fabric sewn over the top to create the body of the slipper. They slip on and off easily and are a good basic slipper. They won't last forever, and certainly won't survive going in the wash, but they are pretty good for three quid. The material is very soft, and slightly furry / fluffy (it has quite a short "pile"). The slippers are roomy and although they come in quite ambiguous sizes (small, medium, large as far as I remember) they do fit well. They are available in a variety of colours, although only three were available when I bought mine. I would probably buy another pair because they are convenient, cheap and easy to replace. They're not the best pair of slippers that you will ever buy, but that's not really what they were designed for. And I bet you can't find a pair as good as these for just £3 either!
I've been buying the Njuta slippers from Ikea for both myself and my husband for a number of years now. They are cheap and cheerful and they serve their purpose well. What more do you need in a pair of slippers!
The Ikea Njuta slippers are normally £3 per pair, however if you have an Ikea Family Card then they are just £2 per pair for Ikea Family Card members. The Njuta slippers are available in a wide range of colours; Ikea currently have them available in purple, orange, navy, pink or black. I normally buy either the pink or purple for myself, and either the navy or black for my husband. I've occasionally even seen the slippers in discontinued colours in the 'as is' section near the till points for just £1 per pair.
The slippers come in two sizes; small/medium and large/extra large. I buy the small/medium for myself, I have size 5 feet and the S/M fits me perfectly. They are wide enough to fit my little fat feet in, and there's actually lots of room to wiggle my toes and move my feet. They do have a bit of excess room in front of my toes and behind my heels, but not too much that they look daft, so I would say that the S/M would fit up to a size 6. I buy the large/extra large for my husband, he has size 11 feet and the L/XL fits him. His heels come right back to the very edge of the slippers, and his toes go right to the front of the slippers, so I would say that a size 11 is probably the largest size that these slippers would fit.
The Njuta slippers are the slip on style slippers with a closed toe. The footbed and the top of the slippers is a towelling type fabric, the label on the slippers states that this is 100% polyester. The towelling upper of the slippers does stretch and give a bit over time, especially if you wear the slippers with socks, and then go back to to wearing them with bare feet, but they don't go too big that they slip off, they just become a looser fit. The towelling fabric also does seem to attract dirt and dust and so I handwash ours once a month or so, and they come up fine. The towelling fabric is really soft and comfortable under your feet, but obviously it does flatten and wear down over time.
The sole of the slippers is a grey rubber sole with a wavy style grip on the bottom so that you don't slip on a shiny surface whilst wearing the slippers. The rubber sole isn't very thick, but it's certainly more than thick enough to cushion and protect your feet. In fact the sole on these is actually thicker and more cushioned that some outdoor ballet pumps that I own. The rubber sole on these is suitable for outdoor wear, I very often wear these outside; either to nip next door or across the road, or to go out onto the decking in the garden, I've even just nipped to the corner shop in them - classy hey!.
I'd definitely recommend these for just £2 per pair (if you are an Ikea Family Card member). They are fairly durable and they last really well, I normally replace ours around every 6 months. They are comfortable, and they suitable to wear in all weathers; they are cool enough for the summer months as the back is open, and they are warm enough in winter if you have a pair of socks on as well.
