Some great new clothing and shoe choices for your winter traveling
Cozy Slipper Socks for Fall and Winter
Pamper and treat your feet by slipping into warmth and comfort in a pair of Pudus Slipper Socks. With an elevated level of softness, the thick and extra-fluffy Sherpa lining provides a cozy pillow feeling with every step. These are very thick and have special treads on the bottom so you won’t slip on a cold wooden floor. Pudus Classic Slipper Socks, Adult Geometric Black, One Size $20.17
This is a see-through wrap that you can layer to provide a little warmth on a chilly night. Made of all cotton. This one-piece can be worn as a wrap, scarf, sarong, and dress cover-up! Made in India from lightweight cotton, tassels dress it up just enough to wear by the pool or over a dress. Packaged in a matching slim bag, this wrap is washer friendly (preferably in a delicates bag to protect the tassels) Mer Sea & Co Luxury Cotton Tassel Wrap with Bag – Lightweight Cotton $54
Kora High‐performance Yak Wool Clothing
Yaks are famously hardy, huge animals that live in the Himalaya Mountains. This line of fine clothing from Kora uses yak wool to create some of the nicest layering pieces you can find. Not cheap, but worth it since the wool is finer and better than sheep wool.
The Shola 230 zip is a toasty warm layer, but pretty thin, a good balance for a good workout or on a trip. This yak wool is naturally odor-reducing too, and it wicks moisture away.
Kora helps the people and ecology of the Himalayas by sourcing yak wool from nomadic herders on the Qinghai Tibet plateau. Their goal is to help them to adapt to change while also maintaining their culture, knowledge, and traditions. Kora Shola 230 Zip $160
Slides with a special OOOmph!
These slip-on slides are great for bopping around my home office. But what I noticed most was the extreme arch, that really does give you a bit of a spring in your step. Here is how they explain it: OOfoam Recovery Technology absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear foam, and their patented footbed cradles your arches to reduce stress on sore feet, ankles, knees and lower back OOFOS Unisex OOahh Sport Slide Sandal, $59.95
Effortless style in the comfortable Roadie slide. Textured leather upper. Easy slip-on construction with self-adjusting elastic bands. Man-made lining and cushioned footbed. Durable rubber outsole. These are comfortable enough to wear to work, and give you a nice little lift.
