Slipping Into Slippers - There Are More Choices Than You Realize
I don't know about you but at the end of the day there is almost nothing better than to prop your feet up and watch a little TV or read a good book with your feet kept warm and comfortable in a pair of slippers. This is one type of footwear that will never go out of style and not only do they help keep you feet comfortable but they do much more. In addition to keeping your feet warm they also help keep them clean and protect them from unseen sharp objects such as carpet tacks or staples.
One of the more popular types of slipper is the slide. The name comes from the way that the slippers are constructed with the back being open all you have to do is just slide your feet into them and you are good to go. These are probably the most desirable of all because you can just leave them under your bed in the morning and just roll over and slip them on. These come in a wide range of styles and sole thicknesses. If you want a slipper that is more comfortable choose one with a well padded sole.
Sock slippers have really gained a lot of popularity lately. These comfortable slippers are really a thick sock with rubber treads on them that guard against slipping. One of the great things about these is that they are easily washed in the washing machine, although you may want to avoid throwing them in the dryer if you want the rubber treads to last as long as possible. These are the same type that are issued to you if you ever have to go to the hospital these days.
The "footie" slip on is another great style of slipper. These may closely a ballet shoe so they are maybe better suited for the more feminine of the population. They are usually made of a flexible material and sometimes a terry cloth fabric is used for the comfort and warmth it provides. These are on of the more comfortable styles of slippers available.
Of course today as with any other footwear on the market there is an enormous diversity of choices in slippers. You can find traditional slippers that are nondescript or you can even find them fashioned after nearly any cartoon character that you can imagine. You can also find them for men, women, and children so there is no excuse why anyone should have to go without a nice pair of slippers.
