:lol: discovering that a certain DFer has Winnie the Pooh slippers, who else is willing to share (confess?) what sort of house slippers they have? excuses that they were a gift from a long, long, loooong last aunt aren't necessary :lol:
Nothing fancy nor cute. Moccasin-like with fleece lining and black rubbery soles. Bummer about the soles is that if I step in any spilled water on the tile floor in the kitchen then I leave black marks on the tile. It cleans up alright, but it gets to looking pretty bad between floor cleanings.
But what I normally do is walk barefoot upstairs (carpeting, and the tile floor in the bathroom isn't too cold except first thing in the morning now). For downstairs (tile and pergo on concrete) I keep a pair of zoris (AKA "flip-flops", AKA "thongs") at the foot of the stairs.
Now if I could just find a house kilt, I'd be set.
I would love to say they were something that Joan Collins character in Dynasty would have been proud of, ie heeled slippers with pink feathers but alas no :lol:
I have two pairs of slipons - one black, lined with Australian sheep wool :doh: never, ever, EVER am I going to black slippers again! The dye comes off on my feet :-( The only saving grace is that they are incredibly warm! The other pair are natural/non dyed and funnily enough don't get worn any more than the black ones. Why? Because I go bare feet when I can also :banana:
I also got a pair of panda slippers last Christmas, ( the cats were afraid of them at first!:lol, but I don't like wearing scuffs*. Besides the shuffle shuffle walk, you can lose them going in reverse.
I had NEVER, ever worn slippers until I came to Japan! No wall-to-wall carpeting here, so I choose to wear slippers (the simpler the better) from November to February, when it gets cold. Go barefoot the rest of the year!
Yep. I used to go barefoot when I lived in Orlando. I'd wear slippers just for fun. It was warmer and I had wall-to-wall carpeting except in the bathrooms and kitchen. But here? It gets a lot colder and stays cold a lot longer. And I have hardwood floors and ceramic tile in most of my living areas. Slippers are a necessity.
