Description

This pair of blue house slippers for children, size 18 cm, features a pattern of boys and girls in nightgowns holding moons, stars, and flowers. Among the children in the design are smaller purple stars, yellow moons, and pink bows as well. Blue synthetic fur lines the edges, and there is blue synthetic leather edging around the soles. Because Japanese custom requires people to take off their shoes when entering the home, many people wear slippers that are easy to slip on and off around the house.
