  • Remember the good old days of having a tough day at school and coming home to your fluffy animal slippers on? They were virtually a hug for your feet and instantly made everything better, especially paired with a biscuit and cup of hot chocolate.

    Well be nostalgic no more, because you can now legitimately wear them again, albeit a slightly higher end version.

    Vetements has released a luxury pair of teddy bear slippers and they’re already selling like hot cakes. No surprise really given the French label’s ability to create cult classics with a tongue-in-cheek twist.

    The ‘Hug Me Bear’ slippers are made in Italy from a blend of cotton, alpaca and mohair blend, with Velcro® tabs so you can move the bear’s arms and legs to mix things up a bit. A definitely improvement from our childhood version.

    They’re available for both men and women, so you can both sit there watching Netflix in pure style.

    Being Vetements, these now retail at £680, quite dear for slippers, I’ll give you that, but can you put a price on a hug for your feet?
