Big Star Sandy Shoes started manufacturing and selling dance slippers in 1959. Sharon Albers bought the company in 2006 and brought some fresh ideas. Her aim was to create a slipper so comfortable you would feel the joy of going barefoot and have the hygenic protection you need. She created an all-purpose slipper made with exclusive two-way stretch fabric that is manufactured in Canada, allowing for a design that has no elastic at the opening so there's no constriction. It's so unique that it has a Canadian and US patent.
