    Hi,

    I used to wear mocasin-type slippers, but then graduated onto those slipper-sock things.

    Nowadays, though, I just walk around barefoot (unless it's very cold, and then the slipper-socks come out of the sock drawer again). Much more comfortable, and stops my feet from sweating like mad!

    Only in winter and downstairs because the floor is cold. Any other time it's bare feet.

    Barefoot all the way, spend more time in barefoot than in shoes.

    Young children, women and grandparents wear slippers .... anyone wearing slippers that do not fit into those catagories will probably suffer from severe sexual disfunctionalities and smell funny ;)

    in the real world no floor is that clean (i'm borderline OCD when it comes to housework)

    the only other option is really dirty socks :D

    I prefer to go barefoot or to be more precise sockfoot in the house,
    but after breaking my little toe twice in the space of two years on furniture I've had to get some sensible slippers for safety's sake. :eek:
    and they cost a fiver !!!
    it's an outrage, I can remember a time when you could buy a new car for a fiver and still have change for a few pints and a 3 course meal for two at a country pub. :D
