I Need Those On My Feet NOW: Panzer Tank Slippers

tank-slippers-1.jpg

This is a pair of custom crocheted Panzer tank slippers made by Etsy seller miligurumis for her husband. Thankfully, she's selling the pattern for $7 so we can all make our own. And by "we can all make our own" I mean "you can make me a pair". I don't want Panzer tanks though, I want Shermans. And I want them to actually shoot fireworks out of their cannons when I click my heels together like Dorothy. Oh, and if you could put wheels on them like roller skates that would be cool too. "Of cooouuurse, GW, anything else -- maybe some rocket thrusters on the back?" GOOD CALL. "I was being facetious." I don't even know what that means but you call me the second they're ready, okay?

Hit the jump for several more shots from different angles.

Thanks to Keith, who has battleship slippers. I get it -- boats for your boats! I'll allow it.

    I know you think you want the sherman GW but the sloped armor on the Panzer will come in handy when your stubbing toes in drunken shambles...just something to think about.

    This is really cute, great idea for cozy slippers.

  • NOTALAWYERBUTIPLAYONEONTV

    Is there any reason she felt compelled to make Nazi slippers?

  • Bluesman125

    Could be that it's because she's an anti-Semite h8r with a Nazi fetish.

    Or you could be a sanctimonious scold that gets off by being ostentatiously offended where people can see you put your moral superiority act on display so we can all admire your hyper-sensitivity.

    Prolly the second one. This is nothing but a cool and fun set of slippers. Save the outrage for the stuff that really is hateful.

    The Tiger I tank (slippers) was the most iconic tank of WWII. It also happens to be German. Whether you see it as a German tank or a Nazi tank is up to you.

  • NOTALAWYERBUTIPLAYONEONTV

    I am going to go ahead and "see it" as a Nazi tank because that is exactly what it was, given that it was used exclusively during WWII. You weird iconographic lust for the tank doesn't change the fact that it was used exclusively against Allied forces and by Nazis.

    Ah get over it!

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    probably because she located in Argentina. we all know the Nazi's took off to South America after WWII with their gold.
