Traditional warm lined slippers or something a bit funky.  In terry material, felt or even leather slippers are made in a huge range of functional and attractive materials. You can lounge around your home in soft, cosy and comfortable style. Like a favourite jumper or an armchair a pair of slippers has a comforting and warming quality like no other footwear.  And, with the prevalence of wood laminate and solid wood floors, slippers are still essential even in these times of central heating and well insulated houses they also help reduce the chance of slipping.  When choosing slippers there are many styles to chose from, like low heel slippers in a mule style, flat mule slippers and full slippers some with Velcro fastening, slipper socks, boot slippers, travel slippers, bath slippers and even novelty slippers.  There are very nearly as many ladies slippers as there are women to wear them.
