Best Choice For Kids: Happy Feet Disney Pixar Officially Licensed Interchangeable Mix-N-Match Zlipperz ($28)
The Happy Feet Disney Pixar Officially Licensed Interchangeable Mix-N-Match Zlipperz are a little different from other slippers. They have numerous zips you can use four tops and two bottoms to be provided with 3 different design combos. Because you just zip them on, they’re easier for kids to use than pulling slippers on or tying laces up.
The slippers feature a 1″ dense foam rubber bottom so they feel good for your feet, and there’s no risk of slipping. The only downside is they’re not really sturdy enough for outdoor use, but for kids, that’s not really a problem.
Numerous different varieties are available, encompassing plenty of Disney favorites, such as Frozen, Mulan, Aladdin, and Cars. They’re a great choice for little ones.
Best Novelty Choice: Happy Feet Marvel Officially Licensed Slippers ($35)
Not all slippers have to look practical. That’s the thinking behind the Happy Feet Marvel Officially Licensed Slippers. These slippers contain the same 1″ of foam rubber that the zlipperz include, but they have a crucial difference — the massive face of a superhero on top of them.
You definitely can’t wear these outside, but as a fun way of keeping your toes snug indoors, they’re pretty great. Many different varieties are available including Thor, Hulk, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers.
