 Star Trek Fans - Trekkers and Trekkies alike - would love to have their feet warmed by Tribbles!

For the Jim Henson devotee,  there's Animal to be worn:

or Kermit:

Speaking of amphibious reptiles, kaiju film fans will love these Godzilla feet:

There are even slippers for the LORD OF THE RINGS fan:
