Comfy indoor slippers with an outdoor sole attachment
  [vote for,

Warm and fuzzy slippers are essential attire in the Canadian autumn, and removing them to put on "outside shoes" is often inconvenient and time-consuming. Wearing your slippers outside, even for a quick trip to the mailbox at the end of the lane, can result in the unintentional tracking-in of unwanted debris. If one had slippers that were fuzzy on the bottom, and had a compatible treaddy sole whose upper layer was made of the "crow" type of velcro, one could simply step onto his outside slipper-soles, run around in the yard, and then remove the dirty soles upon re-entry. Winter soles with extra traction should also be available.

       Great idea, I would totally buy them for autumn. Not really in the winter though; when it's snowy, the sides and tops of my shoes and ankles also get wet and snowy, so I wouldn't want to wear snowy wet shlippers inside the house. But wonderful for autumn!

       Nice - and when you come inside you have the choice of unvelcroing the 'outdoor' sole, or just velcroing a new 'indoor' sole to the bottom.

[Mamamoose] I think for wet weather you'd velcro on a thick cork platform sole which would keep your comfy slippers well clear of puddles, etc.

       Love it. Add [hippo]'s attachment and many others. Velcro stilts. Velco animal-shaped soles. Velcro spring soles. (combine the second two for the kangaroo soles, the first two for giraffe soles)

       Velcro tends to attract more than just what you want it to; maybe the soles could be strap-on instead. And the slippers could be made less bulky, to accomodate the sole, perhaps even something that could fit inside a shoe.
