Now that leaving work means entering total darkness, we’ve turned our backs on any sort of social agenda, choosing instead to retreat into hibernation at home. Chunky sweaters, flannel PJs and a nice glass of wine by the fire: that’s the kind of happy hour we’re talking about. When in winter mode, there’s nothing that rocks our socks quite like a fresh new pair of slippers to keep our tootsies cozy while hanging around the house.
These Dorthy Grieves-designed moccasins from Canadian heritage brand Manitobah Mukluks are like the Ferrari of at-home footwear. They’ve got fur trim and a hand-beaded design; they’re also limited edition and you can buy them online. Don’t you just love traditional companies who get with the times?
Dorthy Grieves moccasins from the Manitobah Storyboot Project, $200.
