Will a kid who steps into these cozy slippers one day step onto the surface of Mars, or welcome aliens as they arrive for a White House visit? Maybe they'll create new space-inspired music like Afrofuturist pioneers Sun Ra and George Clinton. This fanciful UFO design is a near replica of "The Mothership," a stage prop used by Clinton and his multiple bands that was used as the centerpiece exclusively at the closing moments of concerts during the height of the band's popularity from 1976-1981. Plush sherpa linings keep feet warm while nonskid soles help prevent slips.
