While there’s nothing wrong with neutrals, brightly colored slippers can put some pop into your mornings. Look for special touches that suit you. Warm linings conquer cold floors. Slip-resistant bottoms provide some traction. Touches of embellishment will keep you shuffling around in style.
Greet the day – feet first.
