Now for some Slippery Facts
The World’s largest slipper is over 2m (or 7’) long and is owned by Tom Boddingham from London. Tom ordered a pair of novelty ‘claws’ from a UK company (Monster Slippers), but a translation error by their Hong Kong factory led to them making a slipper the size of a small car (according to World Record Academy)
Tom’s not the world’s most famous owner of a slipper, though, as that honour would have to go to Cinderella, Judy Garland or ‘Slipper Man’
‘Slipper Man’ may not be a household name, but he’s gone down in history for wearing the same pair of slippers for 23 years (Guinness Book of Records, 2007). We don’t recommend you try this at home with our slumbies, even though they are very durable and comfortable
Cinderella’s Glass Slipper
Cinderalla’s claim to glass slipper fame has been questioned by some. Many versions of the Cinderalla story have been recorded through history, but in some the slipper is made of squirrel fur or gold. Experts have suggested that the French words for fur (vair) and glass (verre) are very similar, leading to a mistranslation. Certainly from a comfort point of view, squirrel fur would have to be the winner (though squirrels would definitely disagree)
Judy Garland’s Ruby Slippers
Judy Garland’s ruby slippers appeared in the 1939 MGM musical movie ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Actually several pairs were made and used during the filming of the movie – with five still surviving today:
- one of these was stolen in August 2005 and has never been recovered, although one fan has offered a $1 million reward for information
- another was auctioned in 2011 and bought by a group of angel donors (including Leonardo DiCaprio and Steven Spielberg) who donated them to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science
Surprisingly, the famous ruby slippers might not even be the most expensive of all time – a diamond studded pair made for America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon, cost $2 million.
For that price Nick could have bought over 100,000 of our $24.95 Slumbies. And if he wore each one for as long as ‘Slipper Man’, they would have lasted nearly 2.5 million years. That’s a long time to have comfy feet.
