Don’t you just love a good pair of slippers in which you can really get comfortable? I had a chance to review the Gemelli Women’s Lucy Slipper from TK inStyle. I was rather excited to try a pair of their slippers after connecting with TK inStyle on Twitter. Of course, I chose the Lucy Slipper because they look so soft and inviting, and the poof just adds some flare! I chose to get them in my favorite color – red.
So, I don’t usually wear socks with my slippers, but I just happened to remember to take a picture at that moment, and I still had my socks on. The Lucy Slippers really are as soft as they look, though, and wearing socks with them all the time would definitely be wasting that soft, comforting feeling. Socks are so rough!
In addition to a soft interior, it is also very supportive! I was really impressed! I don’t like a pair of slippers that you put on and instantly sink to the floor. The Gemelli Lucy Slippers really offer support inside. I would almost describe it as fitting to my feet. They support and cushion my feet. It’s so nice to slip them on at the end of the day after I’ve been on my feet doing chores and unpacking boxes all day. It’s even nicer to wear them WHILE I’m doing chores and unpacking boxes!
In addition to being comfortable, what is even better is a good pair of slippers that are comfortable and sturdy in case you have to go outside to flip the breaker switch because you tried to run the microwave and Keurig at the same time – or, you know, something like that! So yes, I was happy to discover that because these wonderfully fluffy yet supportive slippers also have a sturdy rubber sole. If I need to go outside for a quick minute, I don’t have to worry about throwing on my tennis shoes! I can just slip my new slippers right on and not have to worry about it!
To be honest, I am rarely ever barefoot or even in just my socks. My husband and the kids are constantly asking me why I always have shoes on. I guess it’s because of my sensory issues, but I just have to have shoes on! I don’t have easy to wear shoes, though, and wearing tennis shoes for every little thing really is impractical. If I decide to kick up my feet to relax I have to take them off then go through the hassle of putting them back on after. Yet, I’ve never found a reasonable solution – until now. Because the Lucy Slippers are so easy to slip on yet have a rubber sole they are EXACTLY what I need for around the house! I had never found such a happy medium – a slipper comfort with a shoe like support. It’s wonderful!
I know I can already think of a handful of people that these slippers would make a great Christmas gift for! Here in Texas we don’t really even have a chill yet, but I bet my family up in Ohio would also appreciate these slippers for their warmth, too! I love that the Gemelli Women’s Lucy Slipper is available in so many colors! Plus, check out all the other great slippers TK inStyle has to offer!
