Patagonia OutsideIn modular shoes
Patagonia's OutsideIn footwear comes in two parts: a soft upper with a light tread on the bottom, suitable for indoor wear; and a glueless, strap-on latex bottom that makes the shoes suitable for outdoor use. Replacement latex treads can be purchased if you wear them through before you ruin the booties.
It's a clever design and not even entirely wretched looking considering there's a giant strap
over the laces. They aren't cheap, though. The "Rum & Cola" boots seen here cost a healthy $140.
I've used a similar "hack" for years with my shoes, where upon entering my home, I remove the entire upper of my shoe along with its sole, leaving myself in socks, which I then put into high-density sheepskin slippers.
