The Most Unusual Slippers you could wear
Comfort and softness isn’t what inspired the designers of these flip flops and slippers. The great thing about them is that they are fun and that you can actually buy them for fun, unless you actually want to walk around wearing flip flops that leave paw prints or to have real keyboards attached on your feet.
1 Ashiato Flip-flops
These slippers or flip flops were inspired by the traditional Japanese footwear. The only big difference with these shoes is that they have paw prints on the bottom, allowing the one who wears them to leave paw marks as they walk. The Ashiato beach sandals come in four sizes, five colors: pink, blue, yellow, orange, green – and five different animal foot prints – monkey, cat, owl, gecko and dinosaur. The fun flip-flops with paw prints are easily purchased online.
2 Keyboard Flip-Flops
Another incredible yet fun flip flops, named as Keyboard 2.0 flip-flops. They are available in many colors and are mandatory for all computer nerds. The Keyboard 2.0 flip flops were successfully launched in January 2011 and still sell. The super technologically advanced-looking shoes use “keys” to massage your soles. Maybe you think you can do this with your old keyboard and make your own flip-flops, but they won’t be the same and as comfy or rendy as the Kito Keyboard 2.0 flip-flops.
3 Dust slippers
Why bother and clean when you can just put these on your shoes and do the job as you walk around your house doing something else? These dust slippers seem to be very popular in the US since most of the online reviews are positive. According to the manufacturer, the fluffy microfiber fingers that make up the soles catch hair, dirt and gather dust bunnies. They are machine washable and should be used only on dry floors (wood, vinyl, tile etc.)
4 Tapistongs Carpet with Inbuilt Flip Flops
Tapistongs is an interesting example of how to buy two things for the price of one. The stylish carpet designed by Lise El Sayed comes with a matching, inbuilt flip flop. Buy this amazing carpet and you will finally have enough ‘slippers’ for all your guests. So cool and practical. We wonder if they will create a version of this product using real sheepskin rugs in the future, we will have to wait and see!
5 These things that fit into one another and don’t have left or right
They are made of a thin sheet of rubber with a slit in the middle, which makes the Double-Sides Slippers practical and enable the user to wear the slippers from both direction. The designers who won the 2008 Red Dot Award for Design Concept with these slippers are Zhang Xun and Li Cheng. The concept behind the futuristic slippers is based on the Yin Yang philosophy. The Double-Sides Slippers are made of flexible and soft material that provide comfort and stability.
6 Star Wars sleepers
The Darth Vader, Master Yoda and Chewbacca slippers are definitely one great way to surprise your friends who are made about this movie.
7 Slippers with LED Light
How many times have you hurt your toes and feet while walking in the dark in the middle of the night? The Bright Feet slippers are literally the future of the slippers and are both weight and light sensitive, so they light up only in the dark while you’re wearing them. The LEDs easily illuminate an area 5-10 meters in front of you and four replaceable lithium-ion batteries power the slippers.
8 Creepy Slippers: Baby & Rat Slippers
These are definitely not made for everyone. But, unless you enjoy dark humor or you need something really extravagant and crazy for Halloween then these are your slippers. The Baby Doll Slippers (which apparently make a very unusual moaning and crying noise while walking) are as big as a newborn and have holes for your feet right where the baby’ stomach should be. Someone made these disturbing slippers at Burning Man, which was an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert. The Rat Slippers, on the other hand, are less disturbing but equally creepy. If you buy the “Rats” you risk to get a small heart attack in the morning when these two little gray guys would peep from under your bed.
