The tail on the back makes Missy slippers even easier to pull on & off. I wear Missy slippers year round. Missy slippers are perfectly designed to keep feet neither too warm nor too cold. Dark suede sole hand-sewn to each seamless slipper. 100% woolen felt. Handmade in Mongolia by a fair trade artisan cooperative. Each slippers has large orange flower with a teal center hand-sewn to the 100% felted wool.
