Here at Nootkas we have our own definition, and we like to keep it simple. To us, slippers have an open back and can be slipped on without bending over or using your hands to get them on. Our Astoria slipper is a perfect example of how easy slippers are to get on and off. House shoes are similar to slippers in that they are easy to slip on shoes without fastenings. Unlike slippers, house shoes are more functional because they are meant to offer a bit more versatility, kind of like a shoe.
