In some countries, like Russia or Slovenia, if you visit somebody's house, you will be given a pair of slippers to borrow. These are re-used for future guests. I have suggested on this blog before that this is unlikely to work in British homes. Most guests will opt for bare feet or socks rather than borrow slippers that other people have worn. However, an alternative to this is to provide disposable hotel style slippers.
Looking at Amazon, this is not a cheap option. Even buying in packs, you can't get them for less than a pound a pair. Still, I was encouraged to see in the customer reviews that quite a few people are buying these sort of slippers to offer to guests in their homes.
