Slip-on work shoes - any recommendations

Shoes are banned inside our house, plus we don't have a garage (or a drive, just an untarmaced back road) so I have to keep all my detailing gear indoors.

If I inevitably forget something, I have to unlace my shoes, put slippers on, go get forgotten item, change back into/lace up shoes etc. Today it was raining on and off and I was in and out of the house at regular intervals. What a palaver!

It would be great to get some waterproof slip-ons so that I can both wash the car and then continue with the post wash detail, but that may be unrealistic. It's more likely I'll need to get some half-wellingtons for washing and maybe some slip-on trainers for the rest of the job.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

To complicate matters, I have narrow feet. Croc type shoes would probably be far too wide ; I've tried them on in shops.

Depending on where in the country you are, Vivobarefoot have a shop in London.

I’ve had my Vivo’s for about 6 months and they’re the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn.

They sell all kinds of shoe, including slip on’s

Give them a go if you can

I have Dunlop welly shoes, they do me for the whole job.
Easy on and off, waterproof, and cheap.

Those look very promising. Half sizes too.

Many Thanks

Another for Crocs. Not waterproof at all which in the summer is a godsend and not an issue for me in the winter. Prefer shorts all seasons if i can get away with it and usually dont wash cars if i cant.
