      A comfy pair of girly slippers

      Before I moved away to university I went mad buying clothes, things for my new flat and other bits and pieces I anticipated needed whilst I was there. I went to my local Peacocks store to look for fashion bargains and to scan their jewellery counters when I came across these slippers at just £4, I thought they looked really practical and girly so I decided to buy some to take with me.

      They are different from your average slipper as they actually have a back in them, this makes them safer to navigate stairs with, your average slippers are a nightmare on stairs. The bottom of the slipper also has grips so there is no chance of slipping on wooden floors etc. also the bottom is thin but quite hard so they are durable and flexible.

      The feel of the fur on the outside is really soft but when you want to wash these slippers they take a while to dry which can be annoying if you want to wear them! They have glittery outlines of stars which add to the girly feel and match with a few pyjama sets that I own.

      I bought these slippers in a small-medium fit and I am a size 4 and I would say these slippers are a 4-5 so they fit my feet perfectly with a little room at the front but this doesn't affect the comfort which is a big advantage.

      They are so comfortable to wear especially in the winter as they warm your feet up a treat! They actually look like a trainer sock or a shoe which is an unusual look for a slipper but they look really fashionable. Peacocks also did the same slipper in different designs such as a lighter pink with love hearts and a white slipper with silver icicles which were also great.

      I have had these slippers for 9 months and wear them all the time! I've often worn them outdoors when putting out the bin etc. and have found that they wash really well and have seen no rips or tears which is a testament to the quality of these slippers.

      As previously stated I paid £4 for these slippers which was an absolute bargain as they are funky and practical, especially if you want to take them on holiday with you they are really easy to fold up and put into your bag!

      Overall, I really like these slippers and when I have worn them out I will be buying a replacement for sure, I definitely want this style of slipper for my next pair. I award this product 4 stars!

        Bargain!

        I bought these slippers ages ago from Peacocks, where they were reduced to just £4. I think they started off being £8, which is still not too expensive. I love a bargain and you can never have too many slippers (or shoes!) in my opinion, so I treated myself.

        I think these slippers look really nice on. They are quite girly, being baby pink with hot pink stars all over, and having a cute girly pink bow at the front by the toes. Most of my pyjamas are pink so these match quite well with them. Because they are so fluffy they are just like wearing socks, they are so comfy. You can wear them without socks or with socks, it really doesn't matter. Personally I prefer to wear them with socks though, but they are just as comfy without. The fluffiness of them keeps your feet nice and warm. They are so cosy to wear, especially in the winter. I never took these off for wearing round the house earlier this year when it got really cold and there was snow outside. I was so grateful of them as they really do keep your feet warm.

        Some slippers, such as slip on slippers, fall off your feet really easily. Or you have to push your toes down to keep them on which is really annoying, I think slippers should stay on well and just be nice and comfy. Well you don't have to worry about these falling off as they stay on your feet nice and snugly and like I say they are really comfortable to wear.

        I must admit I didn't expect these slippers to last very long but I'm surprised that I still have them about six months later and they are still in great condition and like they were when I just bought them (touch wood!).
        You can't wear these outside, they definitely would get wrecked if you went outside in them but luckily I've been good and only worn them round the house.

        These are sold out now but I'm certain that Peacocks will have some similar pairs of slippers out on sale next year and when they do I will definitely be interested in getting a new pair if I get bored of these or if these get worn out by then.

        Disadvantages

        A gorgeous pair of bargainous slippers

        A few days before Chrimbo I nipped into my local Peacocks as they were having a closing down sale and I thought I'd pick up a few stocking fillers for the kids. I actually did brilliantly on the novelty lip gloss and purses front, then while queuing up to pay I noticed a pile of slippers which had been reduced to £2 a pair. Of course, I had to buy some and ended up purchasing different styles and sizes for myself and the girls.

        These fluffy ballet style slippers were an instant hit with my twelve year old, being pretty enough to appeal but not childish at all. To be honest I'm not expecting them to last as they are a very soft indoor-only slipper, but for that price I couldn't care less!

        I have the pink slippers on at the moment, although the same design is available in cream and a silvery grey. I chose the pink basically as they were the only ones available in the sizes I wanted, but in all honesty those are the nicest colour anyway.

        It is the upper only which is fluffy, the inside of the slippers has a soft linen-style which I find more comfortable than slippers that are fluffy inside and out as I cannot stand it when the fibres get stuck in my toes. The whole experience of wearing these slippers is warm and comfortable, they're beautifully padded to cushion your feet and the fluffiness feels gorgeously soft against my feet.

        The sole isn't great and I don't think I'd have paid much more for such a soft and flimsy sole. It's a material covered outer sole, meaning these are absolutely useless for even stepping outside the back door as you'll probably put an instant hole in the bottom. The soles do feel more substantial than they look while you're wearing them around the house as while the sole isn't particularly thick, the padding does make them feel extremely comfortable. Alice, as an unthinking twelve year old, popped round to her friends next door while wearing her slippers just last night and the bottoms are already starting to look frayed - good job I stocked up! Mine have lasted better, but then I'm and adult and (marginally) more careful.

        The design of these slippers is great as the embroidered stars give them a very feminine appearance but in no way makes them look twee or too girlish. The stars are nicely done and the stitching is tight against the body of the slippers, this is a bonus as most pairs of cheap embroidered slippers I've owned have ended up with half of the design missing as the threads loosen and eventually snap. This hasn't happened at all up to yet and examining my slippers I don't think it's likely to.

        If I've got to criticise anything about them it would be the amount of fibres the slippers shed when new. My dog-owning days are finished as I came to a point where I couldn't stand the hairs, three of you wearing brand new pairs of these slippers leaves as many hairs as half a dozen German Shepherds around the house. And the fact that they're pink hairs does nothing to stop it being as irritating as hell to have to keep getting the vac out. I hate hoovering.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A fantastic little slipper that is both comfortable and affordable!

        I am a regular shopper in my local 'Peacocks' clothing store, mainly because I absolutely LOVE a bargain, and I find the fashionable range of clothing inside this shop is very affordable indeed. Not only that, but I have had several items of clothing from the shop within the past couple of years or so and I have found it to be of good quality overall, which is not always the case when it comes to a cheaper-end clothing store, in my opinion.

        It was around Christmas time when I was visiting the store looking for some small stocking fillers such as patterned socks and accessories, that I saw these little embroidered slippers for sale in the Peacocks store at only £4 a pair. I thought this was a fantastic bargain and I snapped up two pairs of the slippers, one pair for myself and one as a stocking filler for a friend.

        The slippers themselves are made of very soft fluffy material, in a lovely pink colour, and have a rounded toe with a pretty little bow detail on top. There is a lovely 'star' detail all over the slippers that is both girly and attractive. I think the overall look of the slippers are really nice and they do look quite modern and stylish, without being overly 'young' and they are not a style that is aimed at the teenage or early 20-something market, in my opinion.

        The actual 'style' of the slippers is similar to that of a ballet pump style, although the slippers do have a much flatter sole than an actual shoe, which of course makes them very comfortable to wear around the house, but bear in mind that the thin sole means that your foot does not have the same support as a thicker soled slipper would have. Because of this detail, I know for a fact that my mother - who has arthritis in both of her feet - could not wear these slippers for more than a few minutes, so I think it is worth mentioning this point within this review in case any potential purchasers have similar problems with their feet.

        The little slippers are very comfortable. They are flexible enough around my feet thanks to the little bit of 'give' they have in them which is mainly a result of the elastic detail at the end of the slipper. This sits around your heel when you are wearing them. I was slightly dubious about how comfortable a piece of tight elastic would be when worn for prolonged periods of time (I am seldom without my little slippers when at home) however I can happily report that there is no 'digging' into the skin from the elastic that I have found. I would be careful when selecting your size of the slippers though as I do think that if they were tight on your feet, this elastic detail may well be more of a hindrance than a help!

        Speaking of sizes, the slippers are available to buy in three sizes: small, medium and large. I personally prefer my slippers to be slightly loose on my feet as I often wear very thick socks when I am at home. (My feet are often freezing and particularly during the winter months I can find it difficult to maintain any decent level of body heat and am usually always cold!) For this reason, I purchased the large size of slippers for my sized 6 feet. I can comfortably wear socks with these Large-sized slippers and have had no problems with doing so.

        I have washed these slippers quite a few times and have found that they wash really well. I personally chose to wash them on a slightly cooler-than-usual cycle as I was cautious about them shrinking. I have found that there are no problems with this whatsoever and they are actually a really robust little slipper, for the money that I paid. I have noticed that there is a small frayed part on the slipper, which is probably about an inch in length and is near where my left 'pinkie' toe would be. Considering I have worn these slippers just about every day for the past two months though, and paid under a fiver for them, I won't be deducting any Dooyoo stars or be recommending them any less. It appears to be normal 'wear and tear' and I've actually paid more money for slippers that have lasted less in the past, so no complaints from me about this!

        I was lucky enough to have a short break to mainland Spain during January this year. My mother always visits Spain during the winter months, and she advised me to take some slippers with me when I went, as the tiled floors that are in just about every Spanish hotel and apartment can be very cold on your bare (or even socked) feet at night time! I was able to roll these little slippers inside each other, like a little balled-up pair of socks, and they took up hardly any space in my case, so bear this in mind if your teenage daughter is one for staying over with her school friends for example, or like me, if you like to take your slippers with you when you travel, these ones are absolutely ideal due to them being lightweight and not overly bulky in your baggage.

        Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with these little slippers and will be looking for another pair for myself when I visit my local Peacocks store this weekend. In actual fact, I have a few family birthdays coming up in March so may well end up buying a pyjama-and-slipper combo for birthday gifts!

        I would wholeheartedly recommend these slippers for anyone who can tolerate their slightly thin sole, and think they make a lovely gift as well as a really nice treat for yourself! They are an absolute bargain and I wouldn't be without mine at all! Full marks from me for comfort and design!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good to wear as thick socks and keep feet warm but not what I consider to be slippers

          The cheap price was the reason I bought these slippers and to be honest I got what I paid for. They were incredibly cheap, at £5 you cant really complain. The good points about the product are the material is very soft and a bit fluffy making them very soft and comfortable to wear, the colour is appealling and very cute and girly. The bow is a nice touch but mine fell off within 2 weeks of wearing these everyday! I cannot fault them for being something nice and cosy to wear on your feet but personally I feel these do not fall into the slipper catagory. The sole is very thin and when wearing them you can still feel everything on the floor just as you can in socks which I would consider to defeat the object of putting them on. I consider slippers to be 'indoor shoes' of a sort and should be hardy enough to handle the odd trips out to the bin if needed! I found I started wearing these just as socks without anything underneath as it seemed odd to put socks on then these on top as they were basically the same thing. I've found their useful to wear in bed to keep your feet warm however and now treat them as normal socks and went out and bought an actual pair of slippers with a proper sole. I would recommend to a friend to wear as warm thick socks but would not recommend to be slippers despite the price.

          a really cute, long lasting slipper

          My mum got me these slippers from peacocks after i had complained that my primark ones (similar to these) had fallen apart! I love this type of slipper as you dont find your feet trying to grab on to them to stop them falling off due to some slippers having open backs.

          The slippers are a nice fluffy material that feels like complete luxury for there tiny price tag ( £4-£5 my mum said). The are elasticated so that they stay on your feet perfectly and are really easy to walk in. They have a slightly padded sole so they are comfy to walk in, as some similar ones to these had no real sole making them no where near as comfy! These particular slippers where a very pale milky pink with a cute star design.

          Mine are a size 7/8 and even though i am only a 7 they are a perfect fit. This might be an issue for someone with slightly bigger feet as i do not think they would fit! I have put these in the wash a few times and they are still in really good condition.

          A good slipper for those who like this style!

          Worth a buy and a try.

          Peacocks have a good range of slippers and footwear on offer at fiercely competitive prices. Peacocks have these embroidered slippers on offer at £4 a pair. The soft towelling slippers look attractive and would make a good stocking filler. Comfy slippers are always a welcome present and Peacocks have done their best to offer their customers a decent selection.
          The pale pink fluffy slippers are embellished with deeper pink embroidered stars. The slipper has an elasticated opening to allow your foot to slide in. Peacocks have finished decorating the slippers by placing a pink ribbon bow to the front.
          The rubber soles of these slippers are fairly thin and they could only be described as carpet slippers. The thinner soles do not allow you to get a good safe grip.
          These slippers from Peacocks are reasonable value for money. They slide onto your feet easily and the elasticated opening hugs your foot to ensure that the slipper stays firmly in place.
          I often leave my slippers on when I pop out to the back patio but that is not really an option with these pretty elasticated carpet slippers. Should you need sturdier slippers then you may have to examine some of the other pairs that Peacocks have to offer.
          Peacocks do not state that these slippers can be washed but they can be hand washed and line dried. Different age groups have very different ideas of what makes a good slipper. Young girls will love these sweet little slippers. For anyone who needs some slippers that will pack away easily these have to be at the top of their shopping list. The terry towelling slippers will roll up into a small ball.
          Need a pair of lightweight carpet slippers? Then these will suit you down to the ground.
          Peacocoks stock these slippers in both pink and white.

          four out of five stars

          Peacocks Embroidered Slippers


          I like to wear slippers even in summertime, but I prefer a lighter smaller ballet pump type slipper than a cosier boot. I was delighted when I first noticed these slippers in Peacocks, when earlier in that same day I had been shopping around for something similar in Asda and whilst I found a pair I liked I couldn't find them available in my size. Therefore, when I stumbled across these I couldn't believe my luck and hurriedly whisked them off to the till and then home to keep my toes warm.


          These sippers are lovely and warm while being thin and small enough to wear on summer nights when it is just that bit too cold for bare feet. I very rarely ever wear shoes around the house, you can usually always find me in a pair of slippers or socks. However, during the summer months


          I prefer these ballet pump type slippers above everything else.
          These slippers look lovely and girlie, which is what I more often than not like in a slipper. I wear my slippers a lot, preferring them in the house and I want something that looks good as well as feels comfortable. These delivered on both aspects, they are made from really soft material.


          These also had a very soft sole that did eventually fall apart towards the end of the slippers life. When it developed a hole I decided to call it a day and throw these away.


          Overall, these lasted me for months, but I put them in the bin last month when I looked out the heavier and cosier winter slipper. However, these only cost £4 and for that price the fact that they only lasted me one summer is fine. I think I wore them pretty constantly for at least four months, a bargain if you think about - £1 a month for keeping the chill off my feet.


          These get four out of five stars from me, the price is fantastic and although the quality might be ever so lacking I was pleased with the wear and comfort of these slippers.

            A nice gift

            Peacocks have a small but pretty bargain priced range of slippers in store at the moment and I have to say I was very taken with their soft slippers that are a cross between a ballet slipper and a fluffy slipper sock. The prices for these simple but pretty ballet slippers is very good, so it goes without saying that when I saw these I was very taken with them and purchased them.

            I have worn them and they are really nice for wear when lounging on cold nights, they go great with yoga pants and pj's and so are worth reviewing. I had to make a product suggestion to be able to write about them, but as they have been added here, I am now able to share my thoughts about them

            **********************************************************
            The style of my Peacocks ballets slippers is very sweet. They are lovely and soft and they have a fluffy fuzzy texture to them thats a bit like a cross between fake fur and long pile toweling fabric. The over all effect is very charming and feels soft and squishy to the touch. My actual slippers are in a gentle shade of what I would call baby pink, although as I recall I could also have had the very same slippers in white.

            These little slippers have a lightly elasticated top edge to them that runs the whole way around the slipper from front to back. This means that when I slip into my slippers they hug my feet and encase my toes nicely. The designs on the tops of my slippers are a series of stars in slightly varying sizes. This adds to the look of them and as I had the choice of cheaper plain ones in the same style or patterned ones, I thought the stars set these apart and paid an extra £1 because of that.

            **********************************************************
            The base of my Peacocks ballet slippers is made from a soft material that tries to mimic suede but is actually a lot more like peach skin in its texture. It does provide an amount of non slip surface to my slippers, but it is very soft. There is nothing on the soles of the slippers other than the suede effect material, so protection from stubbed toes when walking in these is minimal.

            There is a good degree of foamy padding in the base of the slippers and this makes up for the lack of a firm sole to some extent. I would estimate that the foam is around 1cm in thickness and when you squish it with your hands you can see that it will be prone to flattening when you slip into the slippers. In spite of that the over all effect of the slippers when on my feet is very comfy and warm. I really like them and am thinking of getting another couple of pairs for when these have worn a bit.

            *********************************************************
            These slippers are priced at £4 in Peacocks and are on sale online and in store. You can buy similar cheaper ones without any designs or motifs on them and these are priced at £3. They are made from the same type of fabric and are just as soft, so its just a matter of choice as to whether you opt for plain or patterned.

            Sizes are a multi fit affair and in this case they should be fine as they have an elasticated edge to them. Sizes run from 3 to 4, going on to 5 to 6 and then 7 to 8. I feel these are a lovely little slipper that is great for wear when sitting or lounging and as they can be popped into the washing machine to be cleaned I feel they are a good buy. As far as rating them goes I want to give them 4 stars as I really like mine and am thinking of purchasing some more.
