It's becoming a fast-growing trend where men have decided to ditch sports slippers for more casual-oriented footwear. The average man not only wants to be comfortable but he wants to look slick and snazzy as well.
While sports slippers are comfortable, they just don't fit with a linen shorts or pants.
The older a guy gets, his attire will most likely switch from sporty to casual and from casual to semi-formal. That means fewer T-shirts and more button-front tops.
The defining factor behind everyman's fashion is simplicity. We want something that looks acceptable without compromising comfort, and hence the new craze with casual slippers.
Most men prefer them because they are easy to put on and blend well with most casualwear. As weird as it may seem, lacing up shoes can be a hassle. It's time-consuming, plus, there is so much bending involved. With a slipper, all we've got to do is shove our foot in and we are good to go.
