I know you have more important things to do than look at someone's feet. However, I just felt I should tell you my slipper story.
First of all, foot comfort is very important to me. These slippers, and their exact predecessors have been my constant companion (indoors) for the past 30+ years. I very much needed a new pair, since the old ones were quite far-gone.
While going through some old paperwork, I found an old Gift Certificate from L.L. Bean. The first thought into my mind was "new slippers"! The amount would just about cover the cost of a new pair. Then I read the issue date--"March 1987". Almost 24 years had passed since I filed this Gift Certificate in a safe place. The saying "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained" came to mind. I mailed it off to L.L. Bean, and a few days later my new slippers came--no questions asked. This may sound unusual in today's world, but what would you expect from a quality store that never closes it's doors. LL Bean is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Their doors are never locked. I have no affiliation with the store, but I was really very impressed and had to tell you this story.
