These furry slippers are perfect for the Star Trek fan who wants to be a little more subtle in their geekdom. Of course, subtlety is a relative term given that these furry slippers are very noticeable and also make an happy purring sounds with every step the wearer takes. So what makes the furry slippers Star Trek worthy?

The furry slippers are actually a replica creature that appeared in the original 1960s Star Trek series, particularly the episode titled 'The Trouble with Tribbles.' In the episode, the furry little creatures would reproduce at a rate that would make bunnies jealous. Fortunately, the ThinkGeek ad for the furry slippers promises that they won't reproduce so long as you're wearing them. Just in case, these should be worn at all places and all times of the day.
