Hello. :wave3:

What do you wear on your feet around the house? Do you prefer slippers, socks, bare feet or do you keep your shoes on?

I like bare feet in the summer, but as we have hard wood floors it's too cold for that now.

I used to wear slippers. However, I keep stepping outside onto our snowy deck and getting my slippers wet. There's nothing worse than cold, damp slippers.

:bawling:

I decided I needed something sturdier, so I've just bought myself a pair of Crocs.

:paperbag:

I swore I'd never wear them, but I have to admit they're quite comfy. I got the ones with fluffy liners, so with a pair of thick socks my feet are staying warm.

How about you, what are your tootsies wearing today?

I like bare feet - I'm barefooted as I write this, or socks if it's cold on the floor, and shoes for certain situations such as going in the garage or into the unfinished basement :) , ... or on the deck LOL. My partner got me a pair of Klogs and now he wants them ;)

I'm always wearing socks. I feel naked without them and I also get cold easily. Even in the summer since we leave the AC at 73. So in the winter I wear thicker socks and in the summer I just wear my thin ones.
Same here. My feet are always covered. In the house I wear socks. I have these slippers that I wear sometimes but I am always wearing socks. I hate having bare feet. www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GRM1ZQQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I go barefoot most of the time if it's really cold socks I do have slippers but don't use them. My mother in law and daughter always ask why don't you wear your slippers. But I like the cold on my feet.

Today I am wearing thick socks and ugg slippers and my feet are toasty. I wear uggs and warm slippers daily when it's cold. In the summer I wear socks as well even when I'm outside but when it gets in the 90s I have a few comfortable pairs of flip-flops.
Bare feet, never.

Kat0121 Kat0121 Love the slippers!!

Barefoot in the summer. Fuzzy, soft socks the rest of the year. I hate socks, so I am pretty particular about which kinds I will wear. If I am extra cold, I will wear slippers, but I have a hard time walking in them, which means I only wear them when I am sitting.

Socks. I used to go barefoot, but cat litter strewn on floors is not good for bare feet. And no matter how many times I vacuum and sweep, the cats win. I also have a pair of Sloggers that I wear on my jaunts back and forth to the shed and to take The Beast out to pee. My Sloggers have strawberries on them. Mine are garden shoes, not boots. (shhhh, I've even worn them to the grocery store)

Sloggers: All-day comfort rain boots and waterproof shoes

Crocs in the warmer months.
I was a bit concerned that my Crocs came with a warning about wearing them on escalators and moving walkways. Then I Googled Crocs on escalators. And I wish I hadn't.

:fear:

Mine are going to be indoor and out on the deck shoes only!

Stepping on half a chewed up mouse ain't pretty either.

I also have a pair of Sloggers
Those are nice! I love the cow ones.

Yes, I had heard the Crocs aren't all that safe, but didn't know if it was true. Just don't wear them shopping!
While I've never (*knock on wood*) stepped on a dead mouse, I have stepped on hair balls and puke. Not pretty.
I like my Sloggers! Rick got them for me to wear when I'm working outside, but they've turned into shoes that I wear more frequently.

I can't go barefoot, I always end up getting cuts on my feet and they just looked nasty. I don't just wear my socks either, because it wears them out and they get holes in them. So I wear washable sandals. Sometimes with socks, sometimes not.

I tend to go barefoot unless I get cold. I'll wear socks then. My husband wears socks or sneakers, but I got him a pair of slippers for Christmas, so he has taken to them quite well. He claims to not like the noise of his feet on the laminate...if it were up to him, the whole house would be carpeted. Yikes.
