Make Me Smile

I love my hippos slippers. They are so cozy, warm, and not slippery on my hardwood floors. And the little ears and pink tongue make me smile every time I put them on. :)

My hippo slippers one year later

I bought these on an impulse after a really bad day because I needed to be cheered up. They came in the mail a few days later, and sure enough, I was cheered up. They are very cute, very warm, and all around awesome. But how have they held up?

It's been 14 months and over all, they've held up pretty well. To give you an idea of my usage, I wear them almost every day in the winter, about half the time in the fall and spring, but rarely in the summer, but I live in Minnesota so the winters are long. The bottoms have definitely started to show wear: they are getting flat and deflated. Also, there has been some issues with how the bottoms have stayed together. Allow me to explain how the bottom of the slipper is constructed. There is a piece of coarse material on the very bottom that touches the floor. This is sewn to the sides on the exterior. On top of that material there is a pad. This is what makes them soft to stand on. Above the pad there is a layer of fabric that is sewn to the inside of the slipper. This is what your feet touch. From what I can tell, the pad is only held in because it is sandwiched between the fabrics and is not actually sewn in at all. I didn't notice this until about a week ago. The pad on one of the slippers has started to bunch up inside the pieces of fabric. This creates a large lump under part of your foot, while another part of your foot is practically touching the hard ground. It is very difficult to try to reposition the pad, but it can be done with some trial and error.

That's been the only major issue. I am overall very happy with these. They've held up about as expected. Another thing I did quickly want to touch on is how well they grip the floor. I've noticed that a lot of people say that these don't slip around at all, and while they are pretty good at not sliding everywhere, they aren't perfect. I think in the 14 months I've had these, I've slipped and fallen once (on wood floor), and slipped and caught myself once (on linoleum). The bottoms are made up of a coarse material that I would describe as being like a very thin canvas, but a little softer. Printed on this is the text "buyhappyfeet.com", which is in rubber, however, the rubber is only raised a little and it not that grippy.

I wish I could give these a 4.5, because they are really good, but a 5 would not be appropriate because they are not perfect. That being said, I think that these are a good value for the money. They keep my feet warm, they are super cute (so cute, that my girlfriend wants a pair for herself) and I think this website has a customer for life. Once these wear to the point where I need new ones, I will be coming back here. I already have my eye on a pair of husky ones.

If these hold up for another year, I may post an update. Stay tuned!

Very warm on my feet. And it's just like in the picture even more cute 'r' when I got the actual slippers. I love it! Will definitely order more :)

Advantages: True to size, warm and comfortable

Disadvantages: The sewing. I bet it won't hold for long period of time
