Protip: When you see anything at Goodwill in multiples of 10 or 20, just avoid them. Walk away, go check out Housewares or something. Do not, under any circumstances, approach the display and take your wallet out, no matter how your heart may race. If there’s more than five of it at Goodwill, it’s a bad thing.
That being said, you could almost give an entire Inuit village fuzzy slippers with this sale.
But in the interest of the Inuit, who have a hard life anyway, we wish that you wouldn’t. Super-fuzzy yarn probably isn’t as warm as, I don’t know, whatever it is that Inuit make their shoes out of. Probably moose layers insulated with seal or something. Or maybe they’re really into incredibly soft microfiber, but their feet would freeze.
Anyway, these really look like they were made for ewoks. Or possibly madeÂ of ewoks. If so, you think they’d be, like, more than $4 a pair or something, transportation on ewok-skin boots would be pricy.
In my imagination, one person bought all of them, so that s/he would be able to wear these bootsÂ forever, just trade them out when a pair wore out. It would be his or her “thing.” People would say “Hey, Pat, you going to ever stop wearing those boots?” “Nope.” And then lovingly run a hand over them, twirling a tassle around a forefinger. “Ewok is so soft. So very soft.”
