Slippers – from slippers to all-purpose shoes for the summer
Under the name of slippers, slippers have been common footwear for household use for a very long time, which probably originated in the Orient. There the slippers, known as babushes, are made of soft fabrics and richly decorated with embroidery and gold jewelry.
The oldest slippers found can be dated back to the 2nd century AD. In the 15th century, this type of shoe reached southern Europe via Byzantium and spread to other countries in the years to come. In the 19th century, slippers with a heel part were also used in Europe as slippers, but today, as a rule, open slippers without a heel part are offered.
The slippers themselves are no longer used purely as slippers, but are worn by different professional groups and are also considered appropriate footwear in different places.
Thus, the slippers are not longer just as a house shoe or casual shoe of eco-activists, but are certainly as part of a workwear accepted or as an alternative to sandals. Check paulfootwear for example products of crocs.
