Stinkin' 2: Bedroom Slipper Bugaloo

So I know a guy with very stinky sheepskin Sorel slippers. He loves them. I hate them, and since we live together, and my sense of smell is keener, I want to find a replacement. Assume I'm great at finding slippers. But I'm having trouble finding slippers that are well rated for washability or smell repellence. Sweethome doesn't mention this feature. Ideas? It's going to be a long, stinky winter.

Using public dorm shower booths barefoot

So this is 5~10 years ago but I used to get into dorm shower booths barefoot. I'd thought that if you wear a flipflop in the shower, that the flipflop(I wore a really cheap one back then) would become the harboring ground for bacteria itself. Now I'm in a university environment again and came to think about how to manage my slippers -- I found out that you need footwear in the shower. Even so the shower floors were cleaned by the janitors every day; I always washed my feet with soap and then wiped them with towels before wearing my flipflops outside -- how much bad fungus do you think I would have picked up? I seldom had any symptoms of foot disease during college as far as I can remember, although during work I had less luck and my formal shoes were worse places for athlete's foot and foot itches. Now I wear plastic, thick slippers around and will buy Crocs soon (although I'm sharing a bath with only four people now).

dream slippers are escaping me

I saw a pair of slippers in a random photo and became obsessed. Can you help me find a pair that looks like these? Everything I've managed to find is totally dissimilar - just one big embroidered area in the middle, or totally different shape, or totally different style. I'm hoping someone here has a better idea of where to look.

Pillowy Slippers to Buy Online

I wanted to get these IKEA slippers but I didn't get around to it before they went out of stock at my local IKEA. Where can I buy a similar pair of thick pillowy or quilted machine washable slippers online? Down would be nice but cotton/poly is OK, too.

I need more slipper socks, it's getting cold.

I live in the UK, and I've never really nailed down a place to get great slipper socks. I really want these Acorn slipper socks, but nowhere seems to ship to the UK. Can anyone recommend either a place to buy them, or very similar ones?

Mama Needs a New Pair of Shoes

My friend is a shoe freak who just had a baby. Can you recommend a cute pair of comfortable slip-ons that are suitable for the spring/summer in upstate New York with a newborn around the house? Bonus points for luxury, and for things more on the girly side style-wise.

The perfect slippers

Please help me find (online, or in a major Canadian store) some slippers that fit the following strict requirements: fluffy on the inside, thick comfy sole, and, most importantly, are closed around the heel without being a boot. It seems that everything I find that fits the first two requirements is clog-style, and that absolutely won't do. The closest I can find are moccasins, but the gift recipient doesn't like leather/fur. Any suggestions?

Ruby slippers. Glass slippers. Fuzzy bunny slippers. One of these things does not belong.

Are there any attractive slippers out there? Since moving into a house that is much colder than the condo I used to own, I have been buying things to keep me warm: an electric blanket, eight pairs of wool work socks, a very plush bathrobe, and ugly slippers. I’m now on a mission to find myself some not-ugly slippers. [more inside]

Where can I buy a pair of bunny slipper in a large (EUR47 UK12M US13M) size?

Winter is approaching, and I need a decent pair of Bunny Slippers (you know the kind, fuzzy and with long ears). The problem: I take a size 47 shoe (european, that's a Men's 12 in the UK and a Men's 13 in the US), and nobody sells them that large. Does anybody have any leads on people that would sell them in my size? If they'll do shipping to the Netherlands it would be useful, but any leads are useful. [more inside]
