The Comfiest Indoor Shoes

House shoes are common around the world, particularly in Asian and Middle Eastern households. Instead of wearing the same shoes worn outdoors, house shoes are used exclusively inside and worn for comfort and cleanliness.

You can keep your feet and floors clean no matter where you live, though, with these cozy house shoes! Many are crafted with sustainable materials (like upcycled tires) and made by artisans. So whether you’re on Zoom meetings, doing chores, or simply puttering around your home, these pairs are perfect for throwing on (and complimenting your loungewear or favorite house dress!).
