Off with Their Shoes

Blueprint, 2006

No one will mind slipping out of street shoes and into some cozy slippers or a comfortable pair of socks.

Give 'em the Slippers
Keep a few pairs of different size slippers (some more unisex than others) on hand to offer your guests.

Cotton waffle slippers, $6, appearus.com
House slippers, $26, jlifeinternational.com
Hemp slippers, $15, hemp-sisters.com
Cashmere slippers, $35, barefoottess.com

Sock It to Them
A supply of footies (with skid-resistant soles) or cotton bobby socks (slip-proofed with puffy fabric paint) is a less expensive (and more machine-washable) option than slippers.

ExerSocks, $10, crescentmoonyoga.com
Fabric puffy paint by Tulip, $1.50, kitsandcrafts.com

Fix-It Fixes
No, you may not in good conscience ask the cable repairman to take off his boots, but you can ask him to slip on a pair of these surgical-supply shoe covers.

Shoe covers, $45 to $50 for 150 pairs, uline.com
