Flip flops and slippers help keep the soles of your feet protected from the harsh ground while still providing the feeling and comfort of bare feet. Depending on their style, slippers also keep your feet warm or cool. Many slipper boots are soft as well with material options like suede, leather, cotton, wool or polyester. No matter the style, they are safer than bare feet or even socks. Their designs prevent you from stubbing your toes, and they often feature gum rubber outsoles for traction to prevent you from sliding on hard stairs and floors.
There are many different types of men's and women's slippers and sandals, including ankle boots, moccasins, loafers and novelty options. Each kind protects not only your feet but the floor as well. They generally feature non-marking materials on the soles that prevent scratches and marks on the floor. When worn outside, they also help keep your feet clean. Taking off outdoor shoes by the door keeps you from tracking dirt and debris inside onto your hardwood, tile or carpet. If you plan on wearing the slippers outside, consider a pair that is washable, this reduces the amount of foot odour trapped inside.
Some slipper boots work well for summer and others for winter. Summer slippers are light and airy, such as slip-ons with no backs. Winter options are more enclosed. Many of these cold-weather shoes feature warm inner materials like wool or cotton. For added comfort all year long, some come with padded collars and footbeds. This makes them feel soft against the bottom of your foot, adds support and improves shock absorption.
When choosing sandals or thongs, consider the materials carefully. Rubber, leather, polyurethane and suede are popular materials, and they work best for specific events or dress codes. Polyurethane and rubber thongs are more suitable for warm weather as these materials stand up against chlorine, sand and salt water without wearing down. Leather or suede sandals are ideal for casual occasions and look appropriate with jeans, chinos, shorts and casual skirts.
