You have most likely seen a large amount of slipper socks for sale in stores and you may have passed by them without even giving them a second thought. The advantages of wearing them might make you want to buy yourself a pair or give them as a gift. If you are considering buying a pair, it can end up proving to be money well spent.
Considering that slipper socks are similar to regular socks, you can toss them in the washing machine without making any extra effort. There are usually no special cleaning instructions or hand washing required, and you will not have to worry about them being damaged in the washing machine. Throw them in with the rest of your laundry and they will come out clean and ready to wear again.
Slipper socks can stretch fully over your feet and overlap underneath your pants so no cold air can hit your skin. Not only does the full coverage prevent your lower legs from getting cold, but it can also help prevent you from catching a chill through the rest of your body. Many types of regular slippers will only keep part of your feet warm, while the rest of the area on your feet and ankles are left uncovered.
While wearing slipper socks, you will not have to worry about them slipping off your feet. They are usually one size fits all and, just like regular socks, they conform to the feet and stay in place. Slipper socks will usually feel warmer than regular socks, so you can wear them while sleeping. They will keep your feet warm without coming off or feeling too bulky like regular slippers might.
On the underside of slipper socks, you will most likely find a no slip grip spread across the entire bottom. This no slip grip can help prevent you from slipping and falling on non-carpeted floors. In addition, it can help prevent the coldness from the floor from penetrating through the socks and making your feet feel chilly.
There are quite a few advantages to wearing slipper socks, especially when it is cold outside. They are a good alternative for those that may want a little more coverage than what a slipper might provide, but without having to wear something bulky. You may find that slipper socks are so comfortable that you do not even want to take them off.
I love to wear slippers and I really like the idea of slipper sock. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of slipper socks are marketed towards women. Tare colored pink or have lacy accents that I just don't need.
So I am wondering if anyone has come across men's slipper socks either in a store or online. Ideally I would like to get a pair of wool slipper socks that will get me though the long winters here in Wisconsin.
Oh, I love slipper socks! I put mine on the minute I get home from work at night.
They are just so warm and fuzzy and comfy. I don't know why anyone would wear anything else.
I have always suffered from chronically cold feet but in my clipper socks my little piggies stay warm all night.
