Freudian Slippers - Comfy Plush Slip In Footwear

About the Product
  • ESSENSUAL FOOTWEAR - Sigmund Freud understood the value of comfortable things. The most famous example is that therapy couch of his. While all the other therapists in town were using hard wooden stools and benches, people were lining up outside Berggasse 19 to lie on Freud's comfy chaise.
  • NOT JUST AMOTHER SLIPPER - We've taken our cue from Freud in designing these fun and comfy Freudian Slippers. They're fuzzy and plush and look like the great master himself.
  • A TONGUE OF A SLIP - As an extra feature, each slipper has our patented built-in sock tongue! Spending a relaxing Sunday morning in your Freudian Slippers is as satisfying as a breakthrough therapy session - and considerably less expensive.
  • SIZE MATTERS - The Freudian Slippers are available in men's and women's sizes. They also come in an attractive gift box and make a great gift for anyone in therapy (or needing therapy) - which is pretty much everyone you know.
  • FROM THE UNEMPLOYED PHILOSOPHERS GUILD - Don't worry. We are employed, just not as philosophers. We're a small, Brooklyn based company specializing in gifts for the sophisticated gift giver.

Product Description

Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

These were part of selection of prizes for an academic bowl residents were competing in. These slippers fueled a great debate on who was more credible Freaud or Jung. The debate became so heated that one resident grabbed the slippers and said they were a mockery of all Freaud stood for and anyone who would wear them would be nothing more than a superior psychiatrist. The room broke out in laughter of course because he meant to say inferior rather than superior. This resident yelled " INFERIOR! INFERIOR! Not superior!"
The room calmed and the academic bowl continued and who but the ranting resident won them.

These slippers are awesome, but after light use, the tongue started separating from the slipper at the point in the back where it was stitched on. Very poorly made!

I took it to my dry cleaners (who loved the shoe, of course) and they were able to repair the stitch--it wasn't able to be perfect, because the fabric had actually torn out of the stitch, rather than the stitch failing, but it doesn't show and it fixed the problem for now. The slippers sat on their shelf for a good week and when I came to pick them up, they told me that every customer that had come in had asked about the slippers. Free advertising!!

But yeah, they need to change the fabric that is used for the tongue--it isn't durable enough for what it's being used for.

I am not one to buy "cheesy" gifts, and I actually wasn't even certain this gift would be good for my girlfriend. She is working on her Master's in Psychology, so, when I stumbled upon these, I had a big chuckle. I don't know why, they just caught me as hilarious. So, I bought them on the spot.

I figured it'd garner a slight smile, or a chuckle, but when she opened these things, everyone had a HUGE positive response. I had no idea that the red tongues were actually cloth around the wearer's toes, so her wigling her toes made Freud flap his tongue. The perfect gift, and I hadn't given it enough credit!

My girlfriend says they "slip" as she walks due to them being so soft and fuzzy, but that they're extremely comfortable.

Also of note: Freud's eyes are a little cross-eyed looking in the real life slippers. Not a problem, and adds to the sort of "Muppets", silly feel of the product.

I got these because they're conceptually awesome and I needed something to keep my feets warm. They're alright, but it feels like I have small pillows strapped to my feet and I don't feel very stable when walking around.

These slippers were better than I expected. Your toes slip into his tongue and on the bottom it says, 'Size does matter.' I got these as a gift for my daughter getting her masters degree.....she took them to work to wear while sitting at her desk. They are a big hit with the others in the office.

These slippers are always a big hit with any visitors, and the joke opportunities are endless. The smalls fit my size 6 feet perfectly, and the material is soft and comfortable. My only issue with these slippers is that sole is made out of a very flimsy, crinkly material that got flattened down after only wearing them a few times, and now the bottoms are so squished down that my heels slide down off the ends. Definitely not made for wearing anywhere except the house, but a ton of fun!

I bought these for a white elephant party at work (I work in the mental health field) and they went over wonderfully. They were one of the last presents opened, and afterward several people expressed regret at not having the chance to steal them! Many of them also asked where they could find them so they could buy themselves a pair!
These are a really great gift for anyone in the mental health field or someone who is psychologically minded.
Most people get the joke anyway, but I think psych people really enjoy them the most!

Oh- and your toes actually go inside the tongue so when you wiggle them you get his tongue wagging!

This was a gift for my girlfriend's father and he absolutely loved them. Our families are both essentially based off of Freudian slips and love to laugh...so naturally the Freudian slipper, while campy and silly, is also a hilarious in-joke and super comfy. The toes go into the red tongue and it makes them that much more hilarious when one starts to wiggle and it looks like Freud's tongue wagging. I'm not sure Siggy wanted to be immortalized in slippers, but hey, if the shoe fits...
