You can wrap your shoes in something. I've seen that option from some home sellers who wanted to keep their place clean but wanted to give potential buyers a way to keep their shoes on if they were worried about walking around in bare feet or odd socks. (ninja'd by the twig)

I used those once when viewing an apartment. I don't think they had grippy bottoms though and definitely wouldn't want to do any heavy lifting on slippery hardwood floors unless they had some grip to them

Fair enough. Another possibility is rolling out disposable plastic along the route. Plenty of movers do both. Especially if they're moving something heavy in, where there's no practical way to not wear the footies outside, and then stop mid-carry to put the footies on once you hit the threshold.

I always feel like sleeping some more when the alarm goes off, but I always feel better when I get up instead.
