Fluffy Sliders – are we on board?

I know this post is going to potentially piss off a lot of people (mainly people I know IRL) but my heart is telling me I need to share this opinion with you all.

I hate fluffy sliders that aren’t being worn as slippers.

There we go, I feel better for saying it already and I’m sorry for my friends and family that are fans of the ugly things (in my defence I’ve probably already said it to your face). But I cannot fathom what purpose this form of footwear has. We wear fluffy things in the winter when it’s cold, but I’ve seen girls out in force, stomping around with them on their feet in the summer months and quite frankly, it’s about time someone bloody said something.

I’m not a fan of many things that don’t serve a purpose, so these fluffy sliders being up in my face all summer is really getting my goat. In preparation for today’s post, I headed on over to Twitter to ask my followers in a quick poll whether they love the fluffies or whether they should chuck ’em in the bin (unfortunately only 8 of my almost 1,900 followers answered, so let’s just say it isn’t very representative lol). Of the eight people that answered, the opinion was 50:50 – I wasn’t too sure what to make of this as I haven’t really asked anyone IRL that I haven’t seen wearing them whether they’re a fan or not (except for my husband, who said “they’re fucking awful.”)

I like sliders – I can’t say I own a pair due to my very strict criteria when it comes to finding shoes to wear in the summer (anything that will make my feet sweat is a no go – long story, but let me know if you’d like to hear more about that in the comments), but I always admire others that don’t have a complex about their footwear like me.

A quick Google search brings up hundreds of sites flogging the hideous things – no joke, I tried to find some sort of blog post that I could link to that shared my opinion, but I came up with sweet fuck all. Just hundreds of stores trying to sell sell sell or videos showing you how you can you create your own – what is this world?

Let me know if you share my opinion in the comments below, or alternatively if you’re a huge fan and think I’m being a bit of an arsewipe.

Give me a good old pair of Birkenstocks and I’ll be well away.

Until Next Time

  1. I’m really funny about footwear in general, if it shows my toes then I’m usually really weird about it. I don’t know why, I just like it when feet are as covered as possible, including my own. Even though I think I have quite nice feet… doesn’t make any sense right? I like these as shoes for round the house but personally don’t think they should step foot (lol, pun) outside of the house. I do think they’re really cute but like you said, as slippers. But then they really don’t look like comfy slippers, maybe garden shoes? They’re just a bit pointless really and if I saw someone wearing them as part of their outfit, they’d definitely be labelled as ‘extra’ in my opinion hahaha. I love this post and your hatred for them!

  2. I absolutely love those pink ones – I’d definitely wear them around the house constantly. I’ve seen girls wearing them around town and stuff though and I really hate to judge people for their personal choices, but I can’t help thinking they look silly. They definitely look like they’d make my feet way too hot. Plus they really do look like slippers – I’d want multiple colours but they’d be staying indoors x

  3. I love this post, it’s soo funny! I actually have two pairs from Primark and they’re super comfy – I don’t think I’d wear them out of the house though (unless I was visiting a friend and we were just going to be chilling at their house) because I’d be a bit embarrassed because they are so extra! I’d rather wear ‘proper’ shoes with a nice/well put together outfit xo
