Chanclas y clancletas son palabras para slippers pero en España no se oye esas palabras mucho. Prefieron usar la palabra zapatillas. Las zapatillas frecuentamente estan hechos de tela de fieltro con deseño tartán. Supongo que
la mayoria de la gente que las usan son viejitos. No obstante, son muy cómodos y barátos y las llevo en la casa aunque no llegué a la tercera edad todavía.

Yeah, David,

I have heard that a million times, but I can't quite think of it in English right now without a context.
