Fun Facts About Slippers
Knit slippers are a common (and practical) homemade gift for anyone because they're incredibly cozy and easy to make. They're typically indoor shoes, although now it's considered "high fashion" to wear slippers outdoors. When slippers were first invented, however, they were designed with the thin, slick soles so prisoners could not run away.
It is also a custom in Asian countries like Japan to always remove shoes and put on slippers when entering a home. They also have special slippers for the bathroom, so they change from their "house" slippers to their "bathroom" slippers when nature calls. Imagine the embarrassment of forgetting to change back!
Today, the most expensive slippers in the world were actually a pair of slippers that are coated with white gold and over 14,000 hand-placed diamonds. Slippers come in many styles, with these Grandma's Simple Knit Slippers being a "slip-on" style. Moccasin and boot style slippers are also popular.
