“ Brand: Topshop „
Topshop's shoes, including their slippers are really overpriced in my opinion and it's very rare that I will buy a pair of shoes from there as the quality isn't always as good as you'd expect considering the prices.
I always have a quick browse on their website and in-store though to see what's new or on offer and I came across these slippers around three weeks ago in my local store. I must admit that my first impression was something along the lines of 'oh my god as if!' but the more I looked at them, the more I liked them!
I'm not really a cat lover and I bought these mainly because they're really unusual and quirky in a geek chic hideous-but-stylish kind of way. I'm sure that some people will think that these are the best thing since sliced bread but the design is just kind of.. bizarre, but in a good way! The slippers are brown with lots of sparkly golden glitter on them which gives a cool metallic kind of design. I was a little concerned about this, but in the 3 weeks that I've had them I've not had any problems with the glitter flaking off or anything.
On the top of the slipper where the top of my foot and toes go there's the 'cat's' face. If I didn't know that it was supposed to be a cat, I think I'd guess that it was a hamster or something! There's little fabric ears which are pretty cute and they add a nice bit of detail while still not looking too childish - obviously these aren't the most mature slippers, but even at 21 I feel that they don't look too kiddy-ish when I'm wearing them.. maybe I'm just lying to myself so that I don't feel so stupid for wearing them though!
The cat's facial expression is a bit of an odd one as the eyes are closed and it does kind of look like I have dead cartoon cats on my feet, but nevertheless they're still really cute. I love the heart-shaped pink nose and the swirly whiskers! The design of the slippers is pretty basic. They're a little like ballet pumps but nice and soft with a faux fur lining which looks like wool. This is very cosey on my feet and even with socks on I don't feel like the slippers look bulky.
The soles of the slippers are very thin but as I wear these purely when I'm relaxing, this isn't an issue. They're not too slippy on my wooden floor, despite not having grips on the sole. They're very lightweight but they're still warm and cosey. They're not as easy to slip on and off as mule slippers but for me this is not an issue. I have these in size 'M' and I'm a size five and they're a little loose but a thick pair of slipper socks sorts this out. Other sizes available are S and L.
The slippers are quite durable and after three weeks of daily use they don't look battered or anything like some slippers can do after a lot of wear. They're nice and clean and I make sure that I change into some trainers or flats if I need to pop and put the bin out as these are made from the type of material that could easily become grubby and they can not be washed. Price wise, these are £14.00 which I think is overpriced but not extortionate and considering that these are so comfy as well as very unique I was happy paying this.
