Shearling Slippers: My Paradigm Shift

Updated: Jun 1

I have never been a slipper person as I have always felt they were redundant, sort of like the house coat concept. Why would you need slippers when you can have warm socks and why would you need a robe when you have clothes. It all just seemed so inefficient to me, that is until I was enlightened by a very special gift.

Last Christmas I received a pair of Ugg Genuine Shearling Slippers. My first reaction, was these are either going to sit in my closet or be exchanged for something else that I need. As I was sitting there trying to decide what to do with them, I thought I would put them on and give them a test drive. Why not!

As the day went on I realized that my uneducated perspective on slippers was all wrong! My feet stayed warm all day and these slippers were far superior than my flimsy socks. They fit well and my feet did not get sweaty. They were so comfortable that when I went to leave the house, I remember thinking that I didn’t want to take them off!

Genuine wool shearling is one of the most comfortable materials when it comes to clothing, outerwear and footwear. I am so glad that Ugg made them a household name and that the fashion industry accepted these as an evergreen wardrobe staple.

In addition to the extreme comfort factor, shearling has so many other benefits that include insulating and retaining heat, repelling water, breathability, hypoallergenic and it is durable. Try getting all of that in another fabric!

Needless to say I have learned my lesson about judging what I think are redundant clothing items and have made shearling slippers a necessary part of my wardrobe.
