May it be cold and dry next winter, with nary a bomb cyclone in sight.

Why? Because shaggy, furry footwear is all over London's runways. Chalk it up to being further proof that British designers have the best sense of humour. Furry, floor-mopping shoes in the world's most famous rainy city? Bof!

Think of this as the next step beyond what Miu Miu started with its pearl encrusted slides in 2016 and Christoper Kane with those mink-lined Crocs last year. Soft, furry footwear isn't going away anytime soon.

Let's have a look shall we?

At Preen, the furry footwear was delightfully outlandish, lush and plush. Also surprisingly covetable. The great irony: they were the sartorial punctuation point in a collection inspired by deep sea divers.

Burberry's came in silver tinsel. Because Christopher Bailey's multicoloured raver-inspired streetwear wouldn't have quite the same punch with army green Wellies. Rainbow on top, party on the bottom.

Simone Rocha, queen of the furry slipper showed slightly more elongated, pointier toed versions of her trademark. They heightened the overall sense of glamour that defined her autumn clothes.

ASAI, of Fashion East, showed tactile warrior boots that were part Wakanda, part Game of Thrones.

Ashley Williams's created fashion-y versions of your mom's fuzzy bedroom slippers and embellished them with rhinestone slogans.

And Markus Lupfer's powder blue heels looked like Care Bear hugs for the feet.

Now go forth and avoid puddles.
