Merippa house shoes are a modern update of the Japanese house shoe. In traditional Japanese culture it’s customary to remove your shoes before entering the home. Instead, you wear house shoe slippers which provide cozy comfort and floor protection. We like Merippa because these house shoe are not only crazy comfortable, but also easy to care for (machine-washable), travel-friendly (they roll up into compact balls) and fully reversible.
