You’ve probably seen Birdies Slippers all over your Instagram feed recently, doing a hard push for the holiday season. The tagline of “the stylish flat that’s secretly a slipper” sums it up beautifully. These shoes were made for both lounging at home and hitting the town, and their versatility is what makes them stand apart from the competition.
The Birdies team created a new type of slipper that combines the support of a sneaker with the vibant styles of a designer flat. The memory foam and satin quilting feels luxurious under the soles of your feet and the expressive embellishments, like pom poms, give a fun and festive feel.
There are two types of slippers: Smoking Slippers and Slides. The Smoking Slippers are similar to flats, with fabric that circles the heel, and statement fabrics like black leopard and camo. The Slides are their own category of awesome, with tassels and bows front and center over saffron and fuschia fabrics. Some of the styles have white faux fur footbeds while some have satin.
Birdies collaborated with renowned San Francisco interior designer Ken Fulk to create a collection of four speciality slippers. These are truly the stars of the show, and feature beautiful bright fabrics accompanied by a design over the toes of either a regal leopard, elegant peacock, carousel horse or a loving golden retriever.
Each of the slippers comes with free shipping and free returns and range $120–165.
