Leather slippers have crept their way into our niche, most likely due to the need for gap-bridging footwear during the work-from-home era. Want my opinion? This is a big fat W. Why? Well, for someone who often looks their best during late night trips to the grocery store*, the chance to embrace slippers in a meaningful way day-to-day is something I relish.
*I’m talking baggy pajama bottoms that somehow fit better than all of my real trousers, a killer jacket, and these ridiculous slippers that I may or may not be considering putting a Vibram sole on.
The one problem with Leather Slippers? Brands charging an arm and a leg for them. Enter WP Standard and their Mr. Grumpy Slippers that clock in under $100 and look like absolute winners for both getting to know your local bodega owner better at 2AM, and not feeling like a complete slob whilst working from home. Coming in a holy trinity of tan and black full-grain leathers and olive roughout, the Mr. Grumpy is a minimal and classy slipper with full leather lining, cushioned heel, and a leather sole with a rubber inlay for traction.
Each pair is made in Mexico and comes with a lifetime guarantee. If that ain’t a cure for the grumps, I don’t know what is.
Available from WP Standard for $99.
