Here’s a low-key alternative for those who aren’t ready for the full house shoe. These slippers come from Sweden’s Pia Wallén, and instead of suede and velvet, they sub in every industrial designer’s favorite material: raw felt.

We won’t sugarcoat it; they’re just a swath of wool glued to a patch of rubber. But if it’s just for puttering between your bed and the shower, that might be all you need. The gray is the Dieter Rams favorite (plus, it’ll match your MacBook), but there are also red and white versions if you feel like something flashier. If it’s still not flashy enough… there’s always the velvet slipper.
