Hi there, I got these last week in "the spur of the moment". I was never big on fur, maybe because I grew up on an island where it's always 30*C and sunny (oh and well these of course are faux fur). Then I saw them, tried them on and bought them (on sale!). Maybe it's the fashion frenzy that won me over or maybe it's the fact I hung out with a half Russian last weekend, but I'm in love with my newest purchase! and they love me back keeping my feet warm these cold days.
