Comfy Yet Chic: Anywear Slippers

Updated at bottom with winner announcement.

(Read all the way to the bottom to see what's in this post for you.)


Upfront disclaimer: I received a free sample for purposes of sharing my honest review.

Have you ever had to dash out your front door in your jammies, your bathrobe, your slippers?
  • To get the newspaper (not urgent)?
  • To take out the trash or get something into the mailbox in time (could be urgent)?
  • To take a forgotten lunchbox to a kid getting into the bus/carpool (urgent)?
  • To avoiding a parking ticket on street-sweeping day (super urgent)?

Sadly, I have done each of these. And when I say "sadly," I mean for my neighbors and the poor carpool occupants as well as for myself.

It's not a pretty sight.

But starting now, this will change, foot-wise, anyway. Because thanks to KiKi*C, I am going from this:

to this:

Yes, there goes the neighborhood.

I got my "wear-anywear" shoes when I came across KiKi*C and its collection of comfy yet chic shoes.

KiKi*C was started by Kitty Stettner "as a personal mission to acquire ultra-comfortable, voguish shoes to wear at home. The inspiration occurred after a self-inflicted attempt to find chic and ultra comfortable shoes... a soothing treat for my traumatized feet."

So how does KiKi*C fare? Pretty darn well.

Selection: Kiki*C has more than a dozen styles to choose from. Close-toed, open toed, animal print, denim, canvas, all on a 2" wedge, and each one very kicky. I love kicky.

Kiki*C sent me a complimentary pair of Little LuLus (which make me feel like Lori Luscious) but I'm going to also head over and order the NaNa to have on hand for the colder months.

Price: pairs run $59 to $78. And while that seems a bit rich to me (I'm a cheapskate, after all), I realize it's comparable to what normal people spend on shoes (especially if the shoes are multipurpose) , and not too extravagant compared to what my mother-in-law spent on my LL Bean Christmas moccs pictured above.

Comfort: The platform is made from something really spongy and supportive, like memory foam for the feet, and is remarkably comfortable. But putting on my LuLus for the first time was like putting on flip-flops for the first time in Spring -- it took a few wearings for my feet to get used to the contact points of the straps.

Dare I actually go out in my Little LuLus this summer? I mean deliberately, on purpose, to the grocery store? I have met my own dares before and have come out feeling terrific. So I just might. KiKi*Cs are meant to be "outed" shoes.

KiKi*C is being very generous with All Thumbs readers, in two ways:

Discount: KiKi*C is offering All Thumbs readers a 20% discount for ordering by June 15. Just enter the code ATR20 at checkout.

Giveaway: KiKi*C is also offering a giveaway of one pair of comfy chic Little LuLus to one lucky All Thumbs commenter. Leave a comment below by 5:18 am MDT on May 18. Using random.org, we'll select a winner and let her know either in this space or by email (if available). The footwear will be sent directly from KiKi*C.

LOL. My husband has slippers like the ones in your "before" picture.

Do those slippers have a very high heel? Is there arch support?
