Smartdogs Comfort IQ Posy Slippers by Grandoe {Review}

Even though it seemed like winter was wavering on whether or not it was going to fully arrive around here, the recent drop of 19" of snow outside my door has since clinched that decision.

Therefore, even though I may have been successfully kidding myself that I could still wear my spring jacket or that I didn't need to put away all of my sandals in exchange for snow boots, that's all changed now. Winter, it is here.

Along with being sure that we have our fleece blankets pulled out to warm up on the couch, I've had to put away my favorite summer slippers, as the open flip-flop design just leaves far too much chilly air on my feet. But now that I've gotten used to the comfort and cushion of my Synergy Comfort Slippers, how can I stand the upcoming months without them?

Fortunately, I don't have to worry about sacrificing softness for warmth as the Smartdogs Comfort Slippers by Grandoe has now introduced their Comfort IQ line of slippers to keep all things right in my world of footwear.

An exclusive temperature regulating technology that Grandoe has used successfully for some time in their dress glove line, adding Comfort IQ to their slippers was a logical next step in their products. By extending this exclusive Phase Change Bubble Technology, these slippers can actually store body heat until it senses your feet need it and then gradually release the warmth. Talk about smart slippers!

Considering how cold our hardwood floor already feels and how many more months of winter we have left, I couldn't wait to try out the Posy Hoodback Women's Slippers to see how great they would feel on my feet.

Posy slippers

As I looked over the Posy Hoodback Slippers, I was immediately impressed with all of the details that had gone into them. The fabrics were strong and durable, the padding was thick and soft, and the simple design was unique and attractive with the sweet little fleece flower.

Slipping them on, I began to walk around and noticed... mmm, comfy! They slide on quickly and easily and my feet always stay warm and comfortable in the brushed polyester lining.

Combine that with the soft Cozee fabric on the outside and the Active Comfort patented four zone honeycomb footbed and my feet really do feel cushioned, supported, soothed and invigorated!

Smartdogs Posy review

As these slippers even boast a dual-density, non-skid, thermal plastic rubber outsole, they can easily be worn both indoors as well as outdoors without problem. While I tend to reserve them for staying in my house, they're so comfortable that I've worn them more than once to drive Big Sister E to school in the morning!

Both useful and stylish, these versatile slippers can actually be worn year-round because they really don't make my feet overheat — they're even machine washable so that I don't have to worry about getting them a little dirty from the constant use that they've received since their arrival. I am hardly ever without them!

The Posy Hoodback Women's Slippers come in the Charcoal coloring I received as well as a Grey Heather with dark red accents. They retail at department and specialty stores for $55 and are available in women’s size S and ML.

Find out much more on the Smartdog website and be sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Other than the Posy Hoodback Women's Slippers I was provided by Smartdogs, I was not compensated or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this product.

I love these slippers. I wish I could afford to get them. They have everything I need in a slipper. I love that it can tell when your feet are cold and releases heat to keep your feet warm. I also love that they are machine washable. This would make a great gift.

I would love to have the Posy Hoodback Slippers. The color is perfect, slippers that are colored pink make me want to puke.

I love the little flower on these slippers - I make fabric flowers, so that caught my eye. I also very much find the non-skid bottom very important - many ppl don't think of that, but I find it very useful. They look comfy & cute!!!

These are the "ultimate" slippers that anyone could want; with providing comfort, temperature-controlled warmth and a rubber bottom for outside wear. My mother-in-law would love these!

I love these slippers they are so cute. My current ones are all stretched out and I really need a new pair as my feet are always freezing.

I love slippers that have the more rugged sole that can be worn indoor or out, but some are so think and look like Lumberjack boot bottoms, and can catch on carpets. These look trendy and not bulky, love the embellishment on the one you chose. My favorite is the red slide though. I am all about the layers of fluff when cold. Yep, Winter is def here in Wisconsin and with about 3 full months left, I could sure use these! I'd have the feeling though that with a teen and 20 here, they'd be quickly "lost" to them...they do look teen trendy!

thanks!
