      5 stars

      I love wearing slippers and when my daughter bought me these leopard print style ones I was really pleased. They are so very comfortable.

      The slippers I have are a size 5. I usually fit in a 4 or 5 depending upon the store and these are a perfect fit. I think that because they have a back they are more comfortable in a 5, a 4 would perhaps pinch my feet a little but these are a lovely fit.

      They are ballet-style pumps so they protect your whole foot and cover your toes too. I sometimes have slippers with open toes but find that they don't keep my feet very warm but these ones are perfect for keeping them warm without being too hot like those boot-style slippers do. The leopard print is quite a dark print with the tan colour being darker than normal and this is nice because it's not too obvious and in your face, more of a subtle look which I prefer. The little bow on the front adds a nice level of detail too without being too fancy.

      These are really comfortable as they are well lined and padded so you do feel like you're wearing slippers not actual ballet pumps! I like how comfortable they are, sipping my feet into these after a bath is really comforting, a lovely cushioning for the foot. They also have slight grips underneath so they won't be too slippy but these are not really ideal for wearing outside. I will sometimes go out in them to feed the animals but only if it's dry.

      I really like these slippers it's nice to have a pair that are comfortable and practical as they keep my feet nice and warm without being too hot like other kinds of slippers can. These are very good quality and I'm very pleased with them.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      These are comfortable and stylish ballet pumps

      THE STYLE

      Ballet pump shoes with leopard print and black piping around the shoe. They are quite high up on my foot and do not show any part of my toes. There is a lot of support compared to other ballet shoes because the sides of the shoes are stiffer and the backs are rigid. The leopard print is not very bright and there is a lot of black on the shoes, I like this because it's a change from the more tan leopard shoes but doesn't take away from the animal print design.  The small bow is made up of ribbon and looks very attractive on the front of the shoe.

      COMFORT

      These shoes are very comfortable because the sole is not as thin and hard as other ballet shoes I wear. They are a relief from wearing high heels and don't rub against my heels or the tops of my toes.  I can walk for long distances when I'm wearing these shoes without them hurting my feet and sometimes put them on in the house instead of my slippers if I have got to keep going outside into the garden.

      DURABILITY

      Ballet pumps don't last very long because they come into contact with the ground so much because of the thin sole. I have had these ones for 6 months and wear them a few times a week to go to the shops or walk a while with my daughter in her pushchair.  They have surprised me by being very durable and there's no damage to the bottoms of the shoes or the toe.

      WHAT I THINK

      I think these ballet pumps are one of the nicest ones I have and they are a lot smarter than the ones from Primark after a few wears. I like that the backs haven't creased down and and the shoes still have their structure when I remove them and don't look all flat and messy on the shoe rack.

      The fabric is soft but doesn't feel fluffy, the insides of the pumps are made of like a fuzzy black material that makes them feel soft and cool on my feet. The sole is covered in the same material and when they were new the shoes left lots of black bits in between my toes but that got better after I had work them a few times.  You can't clean these shoes very well but if they get dirt on them you can wipe them over and that will usually help them to look clean again.

      They cost £8 but are sometimes on special offer, I will buy them again because for an extra £3 they are a lot better than the Primark ones.

      5 Dooyoo Stars.

        A great shoe-esque slipper.

        I bought theses shoes a while ago and having stuffed them in my wardrobe I'd completely forgotten about them.

        These are some kind of shoe/slipper hybrid that I bought from M & S. At the time I was looking for an indoor shoe I could wear while nannying. I wanted something comfortable and easy to wear that would keep my feet warm in the winter months but not be the burden proper shoes can be when worn inside.

        I had decided to go for a shop/brand that I could trust as I wanted something that would last me a long time (they have!). I did also want something though that resembled a shoe as closely as possible as I was planning on wearing them at work. It needed to be something fairly durable as I would be running around after children but also something that would remain comfortable throughout the day. I found these slippers and thought I'd give them a shot.

        The slipper is basically a full shoe (not backless) in a leopard print material and with a small black bow on the front. It matched my requirements pretty perfectly in that they resembled proper shoes but with the comfort of a slipper. The insides of the slippers are black which is useful because dirty feet won't rub off dirt that will show on the inside.

        The slippers are definitely really comfortable and are a welcome relief for my poor abused feet. They don't rub at all and I've really never had any problems in terms of comfort. I would recommend though that if you are planning on moving around a lot in them you take into consideration that they don't offer your foot much support and so you might get sore feet. But for the purposes of moving around the house they are just fine and this isn't a problem.

        In fact my only real issue is that although that has a very soft rubber sole I have found them very slippery (sorry for that terrible joke) on laminated and wooden flooring. I have fallen over a couple of times so I do wish they had slightly better grip - though that's maybe too much to expect from a pair of slippers?

        If it weren't for the falling over they'd definitely get 5 stars because they fulfilled everything I wanted at the time. I have since stopped wearing them because I took on two part time jobs where it was definitely inappropriate to wear these because they were both businesses. However, now I am back to childcare again I might just start wearing these as I remember quite how comfortable they are.

        Overall, 4 stars because I worry about breaking my neck!

        A pair of slipper pumps from Marks & Spencer.

        It's just my luck that my shoe suggestions get accepted on here on the same day that the shoe reviews move down into a lower earning category. Now I'm not one to admit defeat easily so I've decided to take the massive profit knock and still write my review like a real trooper! I have been somewhat amazed over the past couple of weeks by the sheer number of shoes some people seem to own, I though I was bad with around twenty five pairs but it seems some people have probably had to have had an extension built to house all their shoes on here! It's been like a small yet strong tidal wave, watching the shoe reviews slowly replace pretty much everything else on here!

        The shoes, or rather slippers, that I'm reviewing come from Marks and Spencer, my personal favourite shop for slippers due to their comfort and their longevity in my past experience. This particular pair of slippers consists of a full shoe in a leopard print style material with a small black bow on the front; I'm not a fan of the flip flop style slipper as I always tend to loose them when going up or down the stairs! The slippers are available in a size three through to a size eight but they're not available in half sizes unlike some of the footwear on offer at Marks and Spencer. The outside of the shoes are a light and dark brown with a little black while the insides are black.

        I've had these slippers for over a month now and actually keep them in my classroom at school for when my shoes start to hurt. It's such a relief to put these on, they're really comfortable and the whole shoe is really soft so they don't dig in around your ankles or rub in the slightest. The soles are textile based with a hint of rubber to them which does give them a little extra grip I've found. They're also really light to carry around too. Luckily they're machine washable which means they can be washed time and time again. They're currently available for £10 in Marks and Spencer stores which I do think is a fair price to pay for a pair of comfortable slippers. A full five stars!

        Thanks for reading.
