This is not a small problem, is it? Our feet do so much for us. And if they have troubles so we do also! Recently I faced this problem there was so much discomfort and pain. In shirt: My feet hurt!
After months of long pandemic walks and a few weeks of putting off said walks due to soreness in my soles, I decided I needed a house slipper with arch support. And wearing shoes from the street into the house? Well, that’s gross even when there isn’t a pandemic.
I’d been getting by during 2020’s Sisyphean indoor hours in my hardwood- and tile-floored two-story house either barefoot or with a rotation of old hotel slippers of varying degrees of flatness. You know, the ones that are “one size fits all,” whether you’re a small-footed tween or a professional basketball player. So it was time to upgrade. I’d already refreshed the pillows on the couch, so why not extend that comfort to my own body?
The furthest I’ve worn them outside the house has been to get the mail and to check if the neighbors accidentally have ours. That’s it. And I’m rarely without them inside the house. Cooking? Cleaning? Endless games of Tetris on my Switch? Slippers! The arch support has held up well over the past 6 months that I’ve owned them. I’ve typed about half of this review from a standing position. I always wear the slippers when doing so — it gives me extra padding whether I’m on the hardwood floor or on a rubber mat.
My feet don’t hurt anymore, and the slippers’ soles, while sturdy, are not super loud on either tile or hardwood — so I know at least the walking part of my night-owl tendencies won’t wake anyone up. I plan to keep these until they fall apart, and at under $20, it won’t be a trial to replace them when they do.
