I'm coming late to this discussion, but thought I'd chime in, since I
haven't seen what I wear mentioned yet in this thread.

The Capezio "Dansleekers" have been recommended already, but I really like a
different model from the one that was previously mentioned (that one is
called "Freedom"). I really like the one called "Nimbus."

Like the "Freedom," they have a vaguely ghillie-like look, with the laces
criss-crossing up the foot, and they have a relatively hard plastic/rubber
split sole. It is not too grippy, but provide just a bit of traction on
very slippery floors. This model is more expensive than the "Freedom," but
it is also more substantial. I've got two pairs which I've been using
heavily now for about 3-4 years and they are still going strong, though they
are starting to show some wear.
