In general I've really been liking my new slippers. Last night was an exception.
The weather here has been a bit strange, to put it mildly. We had record cold for a couple of weeks, but this week the temperatures started to rise. Last Sunday the low temp was +1F (-17C), while it's currently +68F (+20C). The forecast for us to go back to deep freeze this weekend, dropping to +14F (-10C) by Sunday morning.
With the rising temps has come rising humidity -- near 100% right now -- but the air handlers in the studios are set for winter operation, which means increasing the humidity rather than lowering it.. This has made the floors stickier than usual. During a turn the suede pad under my forefoot sticks to the floor, causing my shoe to twist. My old shoes did this somewhat too, but being non-stretchy the amount they can twist has been limited. These shoes, on the other hand, happily stretch enough to be a problem.
I still have my old Romeo slippers in my bag, and the hole in them isn't big enough to cause real problems. I'm thinking I may want to wear them tomorrow morning.
