First of all.. Let's start with saying, I LOVE slippers. Any kind. I am a homemaker. A frumpy, spend all day in my pajamas, curl up with the babies and be comfortable, homemaker.
I wear slippers for a good part of the day, I can't stand my feet to be cold. Biggest problem I have with slippers? My heel is not covered! and if I am wearing those sock's with the grippies, I can't check the mail!
So when Collegien let me review a pair of there slippers, I got really excited.
These things are AWESOME! A little hard to describe in text, the pair that I picked out. It is a soft  black sock, with a cream colored non-slip bottom. Just basic. But there are so many to choose from:
·         Cotton
·         Wool 
·         Wool & Silk 
·         Wool & Cashmere
·         Lurex
·         Polar
·         Loops
·         BeCool
The ones I chose are:


I have worn these babies out in the past week, wearing them everywhere. The only downside is washing them. Oh wait! I forgot to mention! Un-like any other slippers that I own, they are machine washable!
Brilliant!
I DO NOT RECOMMEND WEARING THEM IN THE RAIN!!! I made that mistake, and well... My feet made funny noises the whole time I grocery Shopped! You can get all sweaty in them, because the sole is breathable.
The Europe to USA sizing was hard for me to figure out. I had to do a lot of research to find out what would fit me best, I am a 5 1/2 us and a 35.5 Europe. So I got the 36/37 choice, and they are a little roomy. So if you are a half size, step down a little.
Overall, they are great! And there are SO many to choose from that I spent a good half an hour of the site, drooling over the ones I did not choose.
And here is the surprise for you guys! Collegien is going to let me pick a lucky reader, who will get to pick out their own pair!
Mandatory entry: You MUST visit Collegien and comment below, telling me the pair you would pick and why and the size. Leave your email address so that I can contact you.

I'd enjoy getting the Pink Doll Fete for my daughter, she's a US 2 1/1 size or 34 European size, so not sure what size that would be at this website.

I would choose the

Favoris 5678 194 in a US size 12 for toddlers. I would love to win these because I know my son would be giggling the whole time at the face on them and what's cuter than baby giggles!
