Do you wear slippers around your house or RV?

When you’re at home or in your RV, do you wear slippers around?

Speaking of slippers, did you know the word “slipper” was first recorded in English in 1478? That means feet have been cozy for 543 years! The term was given to these cozy indoor shoes because of the verb “slip” – because, of course, you just slip ’em right on!

If you’re reading this from Japan, we’re sure you’re wearing slippers right now. In Japan it’s customary to remove your shoes when entering an establishment and exchanging them for a pair of slippers. Yup, if you go to Japan, you’ll be eating your sushi in slippers (actually… that doesn’t sound so bad…). Perhaps you should invest in a pair like this… hmm?

Please tell us in the poll below if you wear slippers at home or in your RV. We want to know who has cozy feet!

We have a rule in our camper as well as at home. It’s either slippers inside or stocking feet, the shoes come off as soon as we get in the door. The only exception is when we have guest over, and in the last year we didn’t need to worry about that!

I use two heavy winter socks. One inside the other. They cushion my feet and also keep them warm.

No poll, no slippers.

90% of the time I am barefoot or just wear socks when I am inside. I grew up on a farm and shoes/boots were taken off at the door so you didn’t track dirt and mud inside.

If we did not have an inside dog, then I would just wear my socks in the house and RV. But we do and I dislike having dog fur on my socks. So, I have worn houseshoes inside both since we got this dog.

I rarely wear them at home and always forget to bring them when camping.

The rules in my house have always been, no shoes or slippers that have been outside. You either take them off and walk barefoot, or in your socks. If you “must wear something”, bring never worn outside shoes or slippers. Don’t like my rules, turn around and walk out the door you just walked into.

Cheryl, what do you do if a visitor comes to your house who isn’t aware of your rules?

LL Bean only. Being a diabetic the feet must be protected and LL Bean holds up, comfortable. Nothing like a good pair of slippers.

Shoes on first thing in am last thing off at night. Need the arch support. When visiting my daughter I’m allowed to keep shoes on. Only me, everyone else removes theirs.

Not slippers, but I wear Birkenstock sandals. They give good support.

We follow the same practice as Japan and much of Asia. No shoes in the house visitors can where slippers of we have shoe covers for those that prefer to keep their shoes on. I helps keep the floor cleaner. Plus slippers are much more comfortable!

That’s where a robotic vacuum is nice. We don’t wear shoes in the house but out to the deck and in. Still manage to get some in from the slippers or stocking feet. Eufy, we call her Hazel once a day cleans the floors. #2 “Harold” does the 5er twice daily more traffic smaller area.

Socks or bare feet in the house. Slippers in the RV when it’s cold.

Would love to stay barefoot but I do so much better with arch support inserts.

Same here.

Always. No shoes in house or RV (guests can keep their footwear on, but we remove ours). Tile floors in both places, much too cold to be comfortable!

Barefoot, home and RV! In winter our tiled floor in the sticks and brick is heated, soooo comfortable! In summer the tile is cool on the feet.
The few guests we have over might think I’m odd… so what.

I prefer to go bare foot, but in the cooler months I wear slippers.
