I turn 30 later this year. For some reason, that milestone feels like a big one. Perhaps it’s because we’re on the edge of change. Perhaps it’s because I have an irrational desire to reach a certain point and achieve certain things before my 30th birthday. Or perhaps it’s something incredibly simple, in that 30 is a nice round (big) number.
Whatever my wobbles with my birthday in October, I am coming to terms with it in the only way I know how; a mixture of burying my head in the sand and fervent planning.
Part of the planning strategy involves embracing an incomprehensible new yearning for comfort. Now, when choosing clothes, I ask myself if they’re both pretty AND comfortable. I lust over thick blankets in homeware departments and eagerly await the moment I can invest in a huge new bed and sofa to sink into at the end of a long day.
And I have new slippers. They aren’t cheap and they aren’t glamorous but MY, these slippers are the essence of comfort itself.
Made by Ugg, the brand known for those big old comfy boots (again, not pretty but HUGELY comfortable), these slippers are the Daddy of lounging footwear.
I was completely unaware you could buy Ugg slippers until now. I was also completely unaware your feet could feel this level of soft magical comfort on a frosty spring evening.
Lined with sheepskin, the “Ansley” slipper is made from soft suede, with a lovely thick rubber sole (perfect for avoiding slippages on our slidy kitchen tiles). In the whole of my life, I have never EVER owned a pair of slippers as comfortable as these – and I’ve owned A LOT of slippers.
My only criticism of them is that they cost a steep £80, more than many budgets would allow for a simple pair of slippers. But if you’re looking to invest in the comfiest footwear known to man, then I thoroughly recommend these bad boys. (I’m not sure slippers have ever been referred to as “bad boys” before. New first.)
They are lined with sheepskin after all. And they do have a beautiful rubbery sole. And they will undoubtedly last me and my newly pampered feet a very long time.
