St. Thomas University in St. Paul — aka. The College of St. Thomas (as I remember it back in the day). If you’re from Minnesota you’ve gotta pick a side — Tommies or Johnnies, of St. John’s University. Original mascot names. 😉 A proper Catholic college with a monster football team! But my mom was a Bennie — so I gotta lean Johnnies. Sorry, guys. 😉
Tommies slippers with purple boots, gray soles, white cuffs and stripe, and gray and white pompoms on top!
Most of the Alma Mater slippers began as CUSTOM ORDER slippers — most likely as a gift for someone attending the college or high school. And some are given to alumni of a school. 👩🏼🎓👨🏽🎓 If you see slippers of the school you want IN THE SHOP, then I can make them for you fairly quickly as I most likely still have the necessary material on hand. 🤗
If you don’t see the school you want in the shop, then you can get them made just for you! Start by going to the SPECIAL ORDERS page, and submit the information needed to get the ball rolling. You can also just email me and let me know what you’d like to do.
I can make slippers for ANY SCHOOL you’d want. You’ve probably noticed that some school slippers have an appliqué with the school logo and/or name on them while others have a felt pom poms in the school colors. Here’s the deal. I can usually make the appliqués for the larger, more well-known schools (Big 10, SEC, Ivy League, most DI schools). Those school usually have the licensed fabric available — and I can usually find it! But with smaller, lesser-known schools (DII, DIII, and most regional or smaller private colleges), they most likely don’t have licensed fabric available. That’s when you get the pom poms! 😉
