Slippers are great, right? They make roving like some water-filled robo vacuum from one corner of your home to the other easier the feet. Ah, cold floors! Crumbs! Dog poop! Toys! Cords! Carpet tacks! Soft-soled slippers — with leather, fleece or fur uppers — offer warmth and traction but also protection from things that could hurt bare toes. Plus, if you have to shuffle outside for a delivery, there are slippers that offer cross-platform functionality. (That's a fun way of saying they work inside and out.)
The slippers you see here do the obvious: keep you warm, give you clean shoes to wear around the house, and the finishing touch on your pajama set. Shop a few of our favorites below.
It's all in the name: a slipper so good they named the brand after 'em. Easymoc's eponymous slippers are made from long-lasting Horween Chromoexcel leather, a Vibram camp sole, and Ortholite footbeds for comfort. They're your best boot rebuilt to be soft and sumptuous — perfect for doing laps around the house.
Are these the most expensive slippers on this list? No, but they're still $99 dollar slippers. (And our pick above are $245!) These are an upgrade because of both the look and material. Leather slippers fashioned an 18th century mule? We're in.
In all honesty it shouldn't matter what your slippers look like. You could wear Crocs for all I care. But while Crocs offer comfortability and cushion, they don't offer warmth or coziness. These do, and they're only $39.95 — made from the same material as hoodies.
L.L. Bean says they sold 4 million of these last year. One pair every 7 seconds each December. Damn! These backless beauties are soft, durable, and well-done enough to last you at least a few winters.
This is what I think of when I think of house slippers. But, unlike the cheaply made fare of my youth, Quoddy’s got all the bells and whistles like full-grain leather, velvety soft suede, real wool fleece lining, and Vibram soles.
Searching for a high-top slipper? Look no further. Huckberry has these Antons from Shepherd of Sweden. They're like Uggs but without the bad reputation.
Perfectly toasted toes is what the Thermoball Eco Traction Mules do best. They're stuffed with Primaloft ThermoBall eco-friendly synthetic insulation that'll get you through frigid nights camping or through the home when the heater's busted. They've got water-resistant uppers, recycled rubber soles and a collapsible heel so you can switch between city and offroad mode.
Some fancy hotels hand out slippers by the beds in each room. These are kind of like those. Of course they don't cover the toes but who cares if they make feel like you're on vacation in your drab apartment?
These terrycloth-draped slippers get their sumptuous all-cotton materials from a Japanese city known for its outstanding towels. We like their hand feel (foot feel?), but love the fact that they're washable.
I know, I clowned on UGG earlier, but these Scuff Slippers are really nice. They're made from full grain leather uppers and lined with UGG's signature wool material.
Minnetonka Moccasin Taylors are soft, simple, and surprisingly affordable.
These are similar to Uniqlo's in the way that they look like something a bell hop would bring up to your room. Design giant, HAY, put a rubber outsole on some French Terry fabric. They're soft but not something you could wear beyond your front door.
Available in four colors and with your choice of monogram, Lands' End's Suede Leather Moccasin Slippers are a smart, often-on-sale option for the whole family. (Or just you, if you're greedy.)
Do you hate wearing shoes around the house but wish there were an alternative to socks? A-ha! Bombas' Gripper Slipper blends the best of both options. They're soft all over like socks, but have grippy bottoms so you don't slide across your kitchen floor.
Before you freak out and leave an angry comment below asking why I'd ever recommend a $300 dollar slipper, let me explain. These are from FEIT, meaning they're made in super limited numbers by a single craftsman. Don't take it from me: according to the brand, they're "a single piece of ultra-soft, vegetable tanned calfskin with an anatomically shaped, natural latex-padded insole that adapts to the wearer’s foot over time, [with] a non slip suede outsole for natural traction on smooth surfaces."
