My running shoes are also my cleaning shoes. My slip-on shoes work for thinking, reading, really any leisurely activity. My regular shoes are a bit tricky though. Sometimes I can put them on and be really productive in anything, while other times I sit on my blue spinny chair and stare at the screen, my keyboard or out the window.

Probably should have worn the running shoes.
