As with everything American us Brits usually are about 3 years behind and have to wait for stuff to finally get to our little Island, so that's why we rush to shops like Sketchers to get the latest goods.
Well 2 Christmases ago I rushed to Sketchers but only because the weather was bizaar that year, one minute freezing cold and the next very hot, so as I hadn't packed any warm boots I got some from there. Wore them in the parks and they kept my feet lovely and warm, they were a knitted sock type with a furry edging on a thick keep fit sole. I LOVED them and did get some funny looks when I wore them but as ever I just brush off stuff like that and think no more about it............................... They got worn out as I wore them everywhere once back in the UK and they were soooooo comfy.
Now two years on I get a catalogue delivered and lo and behold! There in it are my beloved comfy boots! Same colour everything! Only they're not boots..... they are SLIPPERS! Who knew! No wonder I was so happy... I was trotting around all the Disney parks in me bliddy slippers!
