SHHH! Keep This To Yourself...Marks and Spencer Slippers Offer Great Support For Feet

.

Marks & Spencer Secret Support Sports Mule Slippers

As I have a condition that affects my nerves and then my muscles, mainly in my hands and feet, I have to think before I buy certain items. As my feet are badly affected, this results in my not being able to buy shoes at all and having them specially made for me, although unfortunately with very little success. This condition means that I can only walk barefooted with great difficulty and discomfort, and especially not on hard surfaces. For this reason my home is mainly carpeted.

Wooden, or indeed stone floors, which cover any large area would cause me terrible discomfort. But it is a difficult problem as I have found that even carpet which has a deep pile also will result in problems. But around the home slippers are really quite an essential item of footwear for me.

Because of the need to have something on my feet, I am always on the lookout for slippers which I can actually wear, meaning that I can keep them on my feet and they don't hurt. They need to be of a mule type fitting, with a soft inside but not something too soft which my foot will sink into.

It is important that the sole is firm; definitely not flimsy. This may not seem like a problem but it certainly is! Cheap slippers don't work for me. Also, I can buy a slipper which turns out to be a good buy and is suitable for my problem feet, and then when soon after I try to purchase a new pair I often find that the slipper has ceased to ops be manufactured.

I definitely have to be very choosy indeed about slippers. Some will keep coming off as I walk, which doesn't make walking up and down stairs the safest thing to do.

So, I mainly stick to the same design of slippers, once I have found something that will do. I like Totes Isotoner, and good old Marks and Spencer usually have a pair or two that I can wear successfully.


I discovered the Sports mule type slipper in Marks and Spencer a few years ago. The design of these sometimes changes and the colours vary a little but happily for me the basic shape seems to remain the same. It is fortunately for me that the designers have remained true to the shape and fit as with many manufacturers this simply isn't the case.


Because of the difficulty involved in finding a decent fit which is comfortable, I often buy two or even three pairs at the same time, especially if there is an offer on them. Because it makes sense for me to purchase slippers in multiples I am always on the lookout for an offer on slippers. I also always like to keep a pair to put aside for the next holiday.


The Marks & Spencer Sport Mules are just about the best that I will get. What I like about this design is:


The fabric

The slipper has a textile upper, lining and sock. The outer sole is flat and made from textile and other materials. They come in two colours and I have both. One colour is of a blue- grey, which the manufacturer refers to as 'denim' . These have a light grey piping detail. The other choice is a light grey with pink piping detail. I like the lighter colour for summer wear. I prefer this fabric to a furry design as they aren't too hot in the summer. Also anything furry or too soft gives no support to my foot and will keep falling off.

Design

I really like this simple, fairly plain and unfussy design. These are a comfortable yet are very practical slippers. The sole is rigid and so these, as well as being worn indoors, are suitable to wear outside in the garden. I find them to last very well, even though I often traipse in and out of the garden whilst wearing these, hanging out washing and such.

Washable

This footwear is in fact machine washable, which I believe with slippers is a big bonus. After all, feet do tend to sweat, don't they?

I have washed my current pair (and of course, previous pairs) many times and they always washed very nicely, and look as new after a short cycle in the washing machine. I don't know if they are supposed to be tumble dried but I admit to drying mine in this way during the winter months. With slippers I have tried in the past, I find after washing many will wear out or come unstitched before even needing a wash. Not so with these. I have always found them extremely long lasting.

They also like to be hung out on the line to dry naturally.

Comfort

The inside is just right for me. This consists of a slightly contoured, padded insole which definitely affords extra comfort.

The 'secret support' is supposed to mould to the natural contours of ones feet. I don't know why this should be a secret! This is great for tired and aching feet.

Value

I consider that the price of ten pounds for a pair of slippers of this quality is a very fair price to pay. These Marks and Spencer slippers really are long lasting and keep their shape very well, even after washing.

Availability

Marks and Spencer Secret Support Sports Mule Slippers are easily available from M & S's many high street stores. If you don't have a store local to you or don't or can't get out to shop then these are also available from Marks and Spencer online.

They are available in sizes three to eight.


Overall

All in all I would say that these are a great slipper which, in my opinion, look good on any age.

As all slippers should be these are ideal to wear around the home but also as the sole is durable they ares uitable for occassional outside wear (garden) and also are light weight enough to pack in one's suitcase for holiday wear.
