The word 'slippers' came from the verb 'to slip'. The earliest record for a slipper was ion the 12th century by a southern song dynasty officer where he described two types of slippers he saw in modern day Vietnam. In the west, slippers were first recorded around 1478. It is unknown who first made slippers.
Not all slippers are called mules. Mules are actually shoes that are backless and have closed toes. Some slippers also follow this style, hence why they are also known as mules. Slippers are comfortable, warm, slip-on shoes that are usually worn inside. Sometimes they can be called house shoes, clogs, mules, sandals and slip shoes.
Slippers can be made from a variety of different materials, such as suede, cotton, and leather, although leather slippers are often harder to come by. As they are worn indoors, the materials used to make them don't need to be as hardwearing as those used for outdoor shoes. This is why there's so much choice when it comes to slippers
There's such a wide array available for all the family, from pretty ladies slippers and cute girls slippers, to robust men's slippers and fun boy's slippers. There are so many different styles, you're bound to find something that you love.
There are lots of reasons to wear slippers. They can improve grip, keeping you safer around the home, provide warmth and comfort, and also save your socks from excessive wear. They will keep your feet nice and warm without having to put the heating up sky high, and having warm feet helps you to feel warm all over. Slippers are mostly worn in the home, but if they have hard soles many of us are guilty of popping outside in them from time to time!
Nearly all pairs of slippers are quite flexible, roomy and airy so you don't have to worry about swollen feet. Relax in your slippers and give your feet a rest. Slippers with grip are usually the way to go when pregnant or for the elderly, who often suffer from foot and ankle swelling and are looking for relief. They provide support, warmth and comfort all at once. Lined boot slippers are usually the warmest you’ll find but all slippers are significantly warm and great for keeping your feet cosy.
If you're travelling on a long journey such as a long haul flight, you might want to take your slippers with you for a bit of extra comfort and warmth. You can wear your normal slippers on a plane, just don't forget to pack them in your hand luggage.
