Most camp slippers are shapeless insulated muppet feet—warm enough, and acceptable fashion at a remote hut, but mal-suited to prolonged exposure to snow and nothing you'd want to wear in public.
Holden's first entree into the footwear category, new sneaker-styled slippers, not only take camp shoes to a higher plane of fashion, but they have practical advantages. They slip on and cinch shut with a bungie lace. They're fully insulated for warmth, whether you're backcountry or in the ski lodge after a day of powdery turns. And the gum rubber sole wont soak through—so wear them to load your car when the lift stops turning, to shovel the driveway, or on your next hut trip. Chances are that they'll quickly become your apres work slippers too.
