Pickup: North Face Mule Slippers

Last month I was reading an interview with Okabe Fumihiko, which highlighted some of his outdoor gear, when I first spotted these camouflage North Face slippers. Usually, when I go out backpacking I just toss in some flip-flops for walking around camp but they don't work very well when you're wearing socks. These will do the job much better as they easily slip on, have a soft, grippy sole and provide a surprising amount of support. The water-resistant ripstop nylon upper is made from recycled bottles and they're filled with goose down for insulation. They also come with a lanyard for hanging them off your backpack.
