I really love the hand-made shoes from Beatrice Valenzuela--they are all designed in LA and made in Mexico and are offered in earthy browns but also some exuberant colors. I think these orange high-top moccasins would be the perfect house shoes for me. And the back and tongue can be folded over for a short moccasin look so it's like getting two pairs of shoes in one.
Is it weird to wear "house shoes"? I usually wear a pair of red German felted wool clogs with rubber soles. Please tell me I'm not alone. I'm also a big fan of "house clothes" which in my mind are a step up from pajamas--things you can feel comfortable and loungy in but will not put you in a panic if an unexpected visitor decides to pop by.
