4 Reasons Why You Need More Than One Pair of Slippers
by Dairia Kymber Harvin
If being an Arch addict is based on one single principle, it’s that you should always dress for yourself. It’s simple self-care. We decided to take self-care a step further with a guide to building the ultimate slipper collection and why it’s necessary to own more than one pair. We know you love your faithful pair of slippers that are perfectly worn-in (as you should), but having options gives you permission to express all your cozy, layered facets. Allow us to elaborate below.
One of the most obvious reasons to own more than one pair is having the option to make different statements. It’s all about the look and trying new things, even in comfort! Maybe you have a neutral, daily favorite (see our Kelly Green style) that goes with just about all the loungewear you own. Maybe you have a bold, funky pair (see our Bow Pink or Cowgirl styles) that’s a confidence booster and makes a true statement for moments like a girls’ night or themed slumber party. Allowing yourself the freedom to be creative can accentuate your personality, no matter what cozy situation you’re in.
Accidents happen, but that shouldn’t stop you from feeling cozy. What if you spill wine on them during girls’ night? When you own more than one pair, you can feel confident knowing that you can still slip into comfort while your other pairs get cleaned. Also, don’t forget to pour yourself another glass of wine because you deserve it.
As we continue to navigate this pandemic and you start to plan more trips, think about the slippers you’ll wear in your hotel room or Airbnb. Now think about returning home from your trip and putting those same slippers on. Grossed out? Yep, you’ll need another pair to slip on while you clean the other. Don’t just take our word for it—the CDC did a study that shows that shoes are at high risk to carry bacteria, including COVID-19. In the case of Arch slippers, we recommend that you hand wash them after traveling and leave them outside for a day.
Treat your slippers as investments, especially if you’re purchasing a luxury pair like ours. By having more than one pair, you’re able to make your investments last longer. You won’t wear them out completely and you won’t have to always break in a new pair.
And there you have it. What does your dream slipper collection look like? Our editors would love to know.
