Heated slippers: My honest Review

As a single mother, I’ve got a lot to keep up with. Working full time, caring for my daughter, driving her to school, dance obligations, and to her friends’ houses, you could say I’m run off my feet. But it’s not my feet I’m worried about.

When my manager here at Sleepbo asked me to review some of the most popular gift items for 2021, my mind immediately went to my daughter, Hannah. She has been struggling with sore feet ever since she started competitive dance earlier this year. 

Luckily, one of the top trending cosy gift items for 2021 was heated slippers.

Heat therapy is known to help people with sore feet, so I was excited to get Hannah to try it out!

choosing and ordering

As a product researcher, I’ve spent many hours of my life researching and comparing products. And when it comes to heated slippers, there are a few options to consider.

  1. Microwavable vs. Electric: Electric slippers use a battery or USB, but that’s not the best for kids. On the other hand, microwavable slippers come with heatable inserts that can be placed in the microwave for heat-on-demand. It’s way more kid-friendly and convenient.
  2. Booties vs. Slides: While sliders are easy to slip on and off, booties are warmer, cuter, and more comfortable. They look like adorable furry Ugg boots!
  3. Reviews: After reviewing countless brands, I finally decided on one with thousands of 5-star reviews: kuddly!

Here were a few reviews that sold me:

At the time of writing this, kuddly was also having an incredible sale. Full disclosure, Sleepbo reimburses me for any work-related purchases (score!) but I wanted to pick something affordable because I know how stretched for money many people are these days. 

kuddly also has free shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee so it’s almost a no-brainer to choose their slippers.

First Impressions - 5/5

The slippers were delivered only three days after I placed my order. I have to admit I was very pleased with how quickly they came. 

They were the perfect pink colour and incredibly soft. I surprised my daughter after her dance practice and she was in love with them immediately! What little girl wouldn’t love a pair of pink fuzzy slipper booties?!

She danced around the ballet room with them on and I was grateful for the non-slip tread at the bottom.

They looked so cute on her! Just the right size with a bit of room for her to grow into. It’s so hard buying footwear for kids when you know they’re not going to fit them in just a few months.

I used the microwave in the studio lunchroom to heat the inserts as stated and then put them back into the slippers once we were in the car. Within a few minutes, she told me her foot pain was going away!

Daily Use - 5/5

For the week following my early Christmas present, Hannah wore her slippers to and from dance practice every day

The best thing about these slippers is that they work for therapeutic use or just for ultra cosy loungewear. My daughter loves slipping them on after a hard rehearsal, but she also loves wearing them on the couch while playing games on the iPad.

Her friends and their parents started asking where we got them, so I’ve already ordered three pairs for her best friends for Christmas!

Results - 5/5

Here are just a few of the major changes I’ve noticed since gifting these Komfies to my daughter.

  • No more complaining. She has fewer days with foot pain which means she is happier before and after dance practice! 
  • She enjoys dance more. Because she no longer associates practice with pain.
  • She is more focused on school. Now that she doesn’t have foot pain distracting her, she’s focussing more on her homework when she’s at home.
  • She wears them constantly. And I mean constantly! If she could wear them to school, I swear she would.

Final Verdict - 5/5

In all, I’m so grateful for these slippers! They’ve totally changed my daughter’s life. Even if she hadn’t been suffering from foot pain, I know she would have loved these as a gift. I mean, seriously, they’re the perfect gift for any young girl!

  • Super soft, fuzzy, cosy material 
  • Anti-slip for versatile wear
  • Heatable inserts for extra warmth
  • Super cute, trendy bootie-style 

Like I said earlier, as soon as I realized how great these were, I snatched up a few more pairs for Christmas gifts while they were still on sale. I ended up getting 3 pairs and saved £150!

The sale was still on at the time of publishing this but I have no idea how long it will last. If you plan to buy Komfies for someone for Christmas, act fast!

NOTE: kuddly is currently having a massive Black Friday Sale. Get yours for as low as £24.75 each for a limited time only!
