Slovenian Shoe Manufacturer Made ‘White House’ Slippers in Honor of Melania Trump

Melania Trump’s hometown of Sevnica, Slovenia, is celebrating her becoming the new first lady of the United States.

According to ABC News, Mayor Srecko Ocvirk says Sevnica has “organized free guided tours, a display of locally produced goods and brands in the 12th-century castle above the old town and a festival of grapevine pruning.” Some of the locally produced items include sausages, wine and even a new line of slippers produced by local shoe manufacturer Kopitarna.

“We want to mark [the inauguration] with nice, appropriate products,” Ocvirk told The Associated Press.

Kopitarna’s slippers have a large faux fur pompom on the top and are branded with “The White House” on the inside.

“We sent the future first lady a pair hoping they will keep her feet warm in the coming winter months,” spokeswoman Mateja Reseta told AFP, according to the Daily Mail.
