The OFG indoor footwear thread

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

The OFG indoor footwear thread

Post by Jocose » Mon Apr 30, 2018 8:17 pm

Welcome to the OFG indoor footwear thread.

Generally, I have never worn shoes inside my home.

Throughout my early family and marriage years, we went barefoot indoors mostly because we always had carpet.

These days due to hardwood and tile I'm just doing some Adidas slides, thought about trying slippers of some sort or maybe moccasins but dont want to wear those if I'm going outside to check the mail or smoke on the porch.

I dont do flip flops anymore due to an falling accident from a broken strap.


What do you wear indoors?

I am a barefoot guy. From the time I get home. My wife and daughter buy me slippers every year for Christmas. I will wear slippers if the kids are over for a visit, but I prefer to be barefoot. As an aside, I currently have 4 pairs of slippers still in the boxes and unworn stacked in my closet.

I have a nice pair of leather slippers from LL Bean, I’ve been wearing them for 4-5 years now and I love them!

Barefoot or socks. Flip flops are of the debil.
