Isotoner Sonjas: That One Gift for ANYONE Anytime of the Year

isotoner sonjaIt’s that time of year when you start looking for that ONE gift that you know the majority of your shopping list would love to have and then you buy several sets or items or pieces, perhaps in different colors or styles to break it up a bit. Some years you get lucky and there’s some new gadget or new line of jewelry you can explore. Other years, it’s easier to buy something completely different for each person.

This week, I received a pair of Isotoner Signature Women’s Woodlands Sonja Microsued Hoodback Slippers for review (whew – that’s a title). I think my shopping was just taken care of! I mean I still need to buy pairs for everyone (since they aren’t getting mine!) The only disadvantage of having one pair of these awesome slippers is that my daughters both have the same size shoe and regularly raid my closet. But, that’s why I am loving that they come in a variety of colors so I can get pairs for everyone and the present will still be slightly different under the Christmas tree.

On the Totes-Isotoner website, Isotoner Sonja slippers come in the following colors: Ash, Black, Buckskin (which you see pictured here – and, yes, I really do have two feet – left foot not pictured), Chili Pepper, Chocolate, Navy Blue and Vino. The slippers include a comfortable ResponsIV™ Memory Foam Plus that molds to your feet for comfort and extra EVA heel cushion to absorb impact. The Signature line comes with a smartZONE2™ Gel Comfort Technology that provides long-lasting comfort and helps prevent breakdown. One of my daughters noted that she liked that it wasn’t actually furry inside because slippers with fur inside get your feet too sweaty and they get stinkier faster.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Isotoner Sonjas. They have a durable sole for slipping on a shoe to run out in the cold and get the mail or stand outside with the dog or go warm up the car. They are also great for wearing around the house on cold mornings.

The Isotoner Sonja is available at Macy’s. It’s also available online at Amazon for $30: Isotoner Women’s Microsuede Sonja Woodlands Hoodback Slipper in Ash, Buckskin, Dark Chocolate, and Chili Pepper.
