Cork slippers are comfortable, casual footwear that you wear after a long day when lounging at home. They have the right degree of comfort, support, and ease of use to wear without socks and enjoy for hours without being limited.
What are Cork Slippers
As I have mentioned, cork slippers have a midsole or footbed constructed from durable cork material or a blend of cork and latex.
We all know the popular Birkenstock sandal with its anatomical cork footbed. Well, the same principle is used in most cork slippers.
The cork footbed, or cork and latex footbed, has a cushioning form that conforms to the shape of your feet, almost similar to memory foam, just firmer.
The natural properties of the material allow it to mold to your feet which reduces pressure points and shock – resulting in less discomfort and pain.
Why You Need Slippers
Slippers have many benefits, and you should not be without a pair. Slippers can protect you against cold and flu, prevent slipping and are safe and comfortable.
Slippers protect You Against Cold and Flu
Cold floors can cause health problems for people with low immunity. Studies show that walking around barefoot in your home increases the chance of contracting a cold or the flu. Slippers help you keep healthy by preventing contact of your feet with germs or direct contact with cold surfaces. Slipper socks are great for protecting against colds and the flu, because they cover the top of your foot while providing warmth on the bottom.The most common type of slipper is the “moccasin” style that’s made from a single piece of leather or fabric that’s sewn together at the top and heel. The sole may be made from leather or rubber and will sometimes have treads for added traction. Moccasins are one of the most comfortable types of footwear thanks to their simple design and soft uppers.
Slippers Prevent Slipping
Slippers have rubberized soles that provide traction to help prevent slipping on hard floors at home. They do not provide adequate traction to wear outdoors, however, where weather conditions can cause slipper soles to become slippery.
Slippers are Safe
Wearing slippers provides an added layer of insulation between your feet and the floor where electrical hazards might be present. Wearing slippers instead of shoes or going barefoot around electrical outlets is safer than wearing shoes or going barefoot because slippers insulate you from electric shock if there is an exposed wire present in your home.
