Sure it’s great to have a nice pair of boots or cool sneakers, but sometimes there’s nothing better than slipping into a comfortable pair of slippers. But slippers don’t have to mean flimsy fleece flip-flops either. Here are a few examples of what to wear instead.
From Footwear News:
Footwear comfort is a given these days with many brands incorporating cushioned footbeds with arch support, flexible outsoles and lightweight materials. But comfort and support don’t have to stop at the front door anymore. Today, these features are available in a range of slipper styles for men and women that retail for under $140.
They are available for men and women in classic clog styles for easy on-and-off wear, as well as slide-inspired and thong versions for the warmer months. And they all offer versatile indoor-outdoor soles, making them suitable for at-home wear as well as quick runs to Starbucks.
