These slippers have a tall cuff that can be pulled up high for maximum warmth, or worn pushed down and slouchy for maximum style.
Perfect to tuck into your traveling bag - so no matter where you wander, at the end of a long day you’ve got comfort waiting for you.

I have found that using lifelines while placing your Afterthough Heel makes it even easier! Here is a video if you’d like to see how I do it!!
