    Why in the story of Cinderalla, she is said to by wearing slippers?

    According to Macmillan dictionary, a slipper is a soft comfortable shoe that you wear in your house.

    My question is why in the story of Cinderalla, she is said to by wearing slippers.

    Thanks.

    According to other dictionaries, kohyoongliat, they are also 'a woman's evening or dancing shoes'. (Click on the underlined link and bookmark the OneLook site for future reference.

    Note the correct spelling of 'Cinderella'.
