Taking a day for myself this chilly, windy Saturday by puttering around here in Zum Stollenkeller, taking care of some Christmas shopping online, and applying to paint to a few toy soldiers over on the painting table. And all while wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt, dark green corduroy jeans, an obnoxious belt I purchased online last summer, and the usual chocolate suede camp mocs, which are my go to shoe here at home between October-April or May each year.
In Germany, shoes reserved for wear at home are referred to, as my wife points out, 'hausschue.' Honestly, most of what I have observed when I (or in more recent years we) have been in Germany ain't quite the same thing.
What you will usually see is more in keeping with Birckenstocks (invariably with socks) than Allen Edmonds of similar. Of typical German footwear habits, the less said, the better.
