    Frankly, I’m afraid to wear them sometimes because I am afraid I will spill coffee on them or something.

    Note: I am wearing white socks because I am headed for the gym in a couple of hours. Of course, I will change into my athletic shoes for that

    Gorgon Medusa? Gotta love Roman versions of Greek mythology. "Hey, you got raped by a god in the temple? Now you're gonna be punished by being turned into a monster." Definitely interesting choice of logo for Versace.

    Thanks, now I'm going to be thinking about the rape culture of the ancient Romans and Greeks every time I wear these.

    No worries! Your shoes are actually probably a metaphor for the sacking and pillaging of Greek temples during a lost battle/war. Proudly wear them into battle!

    Are they strictly for lounging in the house or do you ever wear them out?

    Only for lounging when I want to feel fancy. Although the soles are substantial enough to wear outside, they have silk uppers, and even wearing them inside they easily seem to attract dust and household stains. I suppose if I had a driver who could pick me up at my doorstep and drop me off at "the club", I might wear them outside the house. While fancy lounge slippers were at the top of my Xmas list, but I was expecting something like the velvet slippers Brooks Brothers sells.

    Since starting to work 90% from home, I've picked up several pairs of shoes and lounge slippers that are only for wearing inside, including some vintage new old stock US made Bostonian tassel loafers (see below later today) and a vintage pair of Johnston Murphy vintage crown aristocraft shoes that I am sending off to have vibram soles put on so they feel like slippers.

    Sounds quite luxurious. You could always be carried around like Chappelle-Diddy:

    Please say that you're changing into gym shoes only after walking into the gym with those on!

    My indoor-dedicated new old stock vintage Bostonian tassel loafers for working at home and my AE Stuttgart derbies for a lunch meeting.

    No, I do not wear them outside the house. I am afraid I will ruin them.

    My newest pair of inside only work at home shoes—New old stock vintage ET Wright “Breather Wright” loafers with “arch preservers.”

    It’s got interesting faux Goodyear welt construction and “velvet” leather soles. The uppers seem like they’re pretty cheap leather.

    But for $30, it’s a win!



    .

    I’m surprised at how comfortable they are.
