I've seen women wear slippers outside in a range of conditions:
- where they've been in good condition;
- where the outer fabric has gone or is unravelling at the toe (and sometimes at the side by the little toe) but there is still foam or white lining showing and not a hole right through;
- where one or both slippers has small holes right through at the toes; sometimes it's a cluster of two or three small holes around the big toe, and sometimes just a single hole. Usually there's quite a lot of fluffy frayed dabric around each hole, and if the slippers continue to be worn the holes merge together over time:
- where the toes are right out- a big hole cleaned out around the big toe and sometimes the second toe too, fully exposed with no remaining fabric or lining in that area.

The condition of the sole depends on the slipper. For full fur slippers, usually about the same time the upper fabric starts to go, the beige bottom layer of the sole wears through at the front, at the ball of the foot, and at the heel. Then its anything from exposed coloured sponge rubber to cardboard lining showing, to holes right through. When these were commonly worn outside you'd often see where the sole had worn totally away from the front, back to about two inches from the front to leave a big gap exposing the lining or foot; almost always partnered with toe holes through the fabric on top. They looked great and were often worn that way for the best part of a year- always sad when they got replaced. Still occasionally seen today, but rare.

      Do you remember any more about these slippers- style, colour, pattern? Were the holes in the toes big ones or small holes with toes just starting to poke through?

      Hiya Aunty Shan I wouldn't mind betting (if it were allowed) that the sole on that ladys slippers doesn't see as much variety of action as the sole on your slippers!
