Do you have a favorite item from your childhood? Maybe a special gift that someone gave you, or something you found but could never bring yourself to give up. Do you still have it today?
For me, that item is my pair of lucky sheep slippers. They are as sexy as they sound, like giant clown shoes with a cute little sheep face on the front. Those silly slippers got me through countless late-night assignments and cramming sessions before exams.
This is why I’ve gone out and handpicked 9 funny and unusual slippers for adults that can make life at home so much more enjoyable.
Why You Need Special Slippers
Later in life, those slippers helped me transition into full-time adulting. There was nothing else that would bring me more relief from the stresses of everyday life than sliding my toes straight into those warm comfy shoes and opening a bottle of red.
But why did they work? What’s so magical about a pair of slippers?
From Cinderella to Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, slippers seem to have become this symbol of transformation. According to these stories, the right pair of shoes can turn you into a different person, a more powerful and attractive version of yourself.
Do you long to feel bigger and stronger? What’s bigger and stronger than a bear? A giant, hairy pair of bear paws on your feet will definitely make you feel like you own the room.
Do you feel the need for speed? Why not get a pair of fast foxes or racy rabbits on your feet to take you up from the couch to the fridge at lightning-fast speed.
Or what about having the ability to fly? Imagine sailing away above the clouds by standing on a pair of pink winged unicorns.
Okay, maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch, but my point is that a pair of awesome slippers can really change your mood and mindset.
