Hi all,
I always went barefoot then got fed up with having to wipe the soles of my feet as they always felt unclean (even though my house is spotless), so I bought some cheap black sliders from Tesco. What do you wear? X

I meant to say what made me think on it. I looked at the sliders and then thought about all the other options and wondered what everyone else wore. X

Flip flops or bare feet.

I find wellies ideal. I have a selection in various colours depending on my outfit. I get them a size bigger than my feet so I can wear thick socks in winter. In summer the extra room allows air to circulate freely and keeps my toes cool.

The best thing about them IMO. is that they are easy to clean.

Mule slippers or flip flops according to how hot it is. If it’s very hot bare feet

Barefoot in the summer, slipper socks in the winter. But flip flops in the kitchen!

I have indoor wellies and outdoor wellies. I’d never wear a pair of outdoor ones inside that would trail dirt into the house.

Birkenstock’s toe post sandals, in the warm months.
I have a purple pair, a blue floral pair and a black pair, so they will coordinate with virtually any outfit.

They last for years and are supremely comfortable. I can go out to the dustbin or walk up to the post box in them.

In winter I wear Moshulu slippers.

Flying Handbag could you ease up on the xxxx at the end of every post please?
Really annoying hmmhmm

Sorry, that wasn’t meant to be as unfriendly as it may have sounded 💋 💋

Slippers when indoors in the winter. In summer I wear sandals or light barefoot shoes.

Today I was walking around bare feet- too hot to wear slippers of any kind--so lovely to feel the cool floor tiles under my feet ...

Crocs. I discovered Crocs quite recently and pretty much live in them now. The great thing is that you can wash them every so often.

Barefoot most of the year, slippers in the dead of winter.

welbeck Thu 25-Jun-20 00:06:20

i wear cheap flip-flops, the sort you see outside mosques.
in winter i wear socks with them indoors to keep warm.
i never wear them outside, even to the dustbin.
actually i have only worn the same one pair of shoes outside since march, and i keep them just inside the front door, on newspaper and spray the soles with anti-bac when i return.

I go barefoot but I also have indoor shoes, flat pumps, that I wear if going barefoot isn't appropriate.

The house is tiled and the floors are washed daily so my feet are never dirty even if I spend the whole day without shoes.
