i've been wearing what you would consider traditional house slippers and found that they suck in every way possible. i find myself shuffling my feet in order to keep the dang things on and they've flattened out so quickly that i now deem them useless. i used to have a pair of house "slippers" that looked like cowboy boots but were still soft. so now i've found the alternative to that. these hot pink booty things (that are typically the colors i would avoid) somehow landed in my shopping cart and i love them. they're comfy and i don't have to shuffle around to keep them on.
