Welcome to our Honest Review Series! Our team tested this year’s most popular Christmas gifts (as voted by you!) and gave their honest opinions on whether or not they live up to the hype.
You’re currently reading our Honest Review of Cushioned Slides. Check out the other reviews in this series:
As Sleepbo’s token young person Research Assistant Intern, I was tasked with researching the best gifts for Millennials and Zoomers and giving my honest opinions on them.
So, while researching products to review, being the professional that I am, I went on TikTok to see what was trending.
One thing I kept seeing everywhere were these super comfy-looking cushioned slides. And it wasn’t just TikTok, celebrities were wearing them too, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Beiber. I just knew they would be a top trending Christmas gift for 2021, so of course, I had to try them for myself.
Because of their viral popularity these past few months, it’s pretty difficult to get your hands on a pair. They were sold out at a lot of the places I was comparing, including my favourite home comfort brand, kuddly.
Luckily, as a Sleepbo Research Assistant, I am subscribed to kuddly’s mailing list and I got notified that they were restocking for their massive Holiday Friday sale. So, while I normally debate about my purchases for a long time, this time I know I didn’t have that luxury.
I already know and trust kuddly, having purchased and reviewed their products before. Here are a few reasons why I love them:
And if you need more convincing, take a look at these 5-star reviews, sourced from their TrustPilot profile.
So, after a quick review, I took the plunge and hit “purchase” on a pair of sunny yellow Kloud Slides. I figured, with the money-back guarantee and free shipping, there really was no reason not to just try them!
After reading all the amazing reviews on their Trustpilot, I had high expectations for how quickly my package would get delivered. Many people reported getting their packages only the next day after ordering! So, when mine came 4 days after I placed my order, I felt like it had been ages!
I definitely think this has to do with the increase in parcels during the holiday season, which means this problem will only get worse for all online retailers! For that reason, I highly recommend getting started on your Christmas shopping early this year.
Before I opened the package, I was pretty shocked at how lightweight it was (I also ordered some other things from kuddly to review, and they were significantly heavier). I knew they were supposed to be ultra-light materials but it felt like the box was nearly empty!
When I opened it, my first thought was: the colour is so cute! Then I took the cushioned slides out of their packaging and instantly understood why people were so obsessed.
These things are:
Not to mention, they’re just really, really cute. I couldn’t wait to throw them on with a cute pair of trousers, or a pair of clean Nike socks and my trackies.
The kuddly website says that the material they use to make their Kloud Slides is athlete grade. Once I started wearing them on the daily, I could totally tell what they meant.
These things are next-level comfy. They feel like pillows on your feet. Once I put them on, they instantly became my go-to shoes!
I got a tonne of compliments at the grocery store and the beach. A girl at the gym even asked me where I got them from.
My sister loved them, too. She’s still in high school and doesn’t have an income to buy her own, so I bought her a pair for Christmas in her favourite pink colour!
Here are a few of the changes I’ve noticed since I bought these cushioned slides:
I honestly think these Kloud Slides are the perfect gift for any Zoomer or Millennial on your list! They’re so cute, comfy, and versatile.
They get a solid 5 stars from me, just make sure to order early to avoid the holiday rush!
