Slippers category gone? Google taxonomy.
Hi- I wondered what has happened to the Slippers Category within Shoes?
My Product Listing Ads are saying that the category (Slippers) is now invalid due to changes in the taxonomy.
I could list them all in Shoes, but this seems to defeat Google's aim of relevancy?

google's rules, policies, specifications, and their
taxonomy values have been recently updated --
mainly to simplify feed data and possibly to allow
for future features related to user experience.
for example, the subcategories under shoes have been
condensed into a single top-level parent node value --
google_product_category requires a google-defined
value and must be submitted per google's rules.
"list them all in Shoes" -- yes, that sounds correct
given the updated specifications and taxonomy.
to submit self-defined or more specific taxonomy values with
a finer granularity, the product_type attribute may be used.
