There was a time when people didn't remove their shoes when they entered another's home. A horrible thing for carpets and rugs but definitely a more dignified way for a guest to prance around. It is hard to maintain an air of elegance when you feel like a kid sliding across a floor in your stockinged feet!
When visiting a friends home, I occasionally travel with a pair of ballet slippers that I slip into when I have arrived at my destination. Something a touch more stylish than a house-slipper (and no, you should never be carting around your house-slippers no matter how cute you think they are!) and a comfortable alternative to bare or stockinged feet. Unfortuately, it limits me when it comes time to choose what purse I will carry (my purse must obviously be big enough to hold that extra pair of shoes).
The slipper is made of a durable, skid resistant, waterproof under-surface and polyurethane upper that comes in seven great colors: Black As Night, Shimmery Silver, Glittery Gold, Wedding White, Pretty in Pink, Golden Gator and Black Magic (the last three listed being limited edition colours for the season). The heel is reinforced with extra padding for additional comfort and support. A drawstring shoe bag is included so that you can house the shoes that you have removed (big enough to house the highest of heels).
