The sleekest staying at home shoes combine style with insouciance, so it’s unsurprising that we’ve been drawn to slip on options that also boast a snuggle factor. Think flat pumps, slippers and pared-back ballet flats, and feast your eyes (and feet) on natural textures including shearling, soft leather and suede. With these options, you’ll be well and truly on the right foot.
