As the Chinese athletes bagged the second-highest number of gold medals at the London 2012 Olympics, the entire nation would be in the celebration mode. And if you want to be a part of the celebration, picking up a pair of limited-edition slippers from designer Vivienne Tam won’t be such a bad thing to add to your list of accessories. Hilton Hotels has brought out special limited-edition pair of “Water Dragon” slippers in a bid to woo its Chinese client base. Up for grabs for just a month, you need to be a part of the Hilton Huanying program, which covers 70 participating hotels in 23.

The slippers sport “a mirrored design of two intricate inward-facing blue dragons swimming in a turquoise “sea” – a common symbol of optimism, harmony and fulfillment in Chinese culture” in hues of blue. The footwear has been made using soft terry cloth, with cushioning at the toe and a textured sole, available in a men’s and a women’s size.
