OK, Sounds like a stupid question, but does anyone know where you can buy adult slippers from on the island. I have checked Wings, they only sell kids, and War paint who stock shoes, but not being here long I don't know where to look.

Any suggestions would be great.

try again at war paint - they stock a huge variety of slippers right at the back, two aisles if i recall correctly - mostly Old Navy brand, and also leather, more expensive ones up to $100bz. Wings also had adult ones last time i checked, Reef brand and others.... Otherwise pretty much anywhere has them (Quans on middle st had a fake crocs chinese import for $15bz which to be fair have lasted me about 6 months now).

ShadowCat, flipflops or sandals are called slippers by locals. Are you looking for in-house slippers? I have seen them once at Sunsations gift shop but the only place I have seen them on a regular basis is Mirab in Belize city.

Oh, I mean the slippers you wear to keep your feet warm around the house, the place I am staying has a hard polish concrete floor and wanted something soft and comfy to wear, not like flip flops that we seem to wear all day long.

Sorry for the confusion and thanks.

I think I saw some at Caye Supply. Also try the drug/lingerie shop across from Gecko Graphics if not there, for sure Brodies in the city.

I usually just put on some socks; actually have a pair of fuzzy socks just for this purpose. Perhaps you don't want to slide all about the floor tho'. smile

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

"not like flip flops that we seem to wear all day long"

No kidding! I wear mine from the minute I get up until the minute I go to bed (I live on the beach ground floor). The high end sandal makers need to use me as a tester (for a fee of course)...
