    Best Overall: Haflinger Unisex AT Wool Slippers

    Excellent

    These slippers have molded arch support that helps with the fit and alignment of the foot. They're designed to keep your feet the right temperature, no matter what environment you’re in, and will absorb moisture to help keep them dry, too. Rubber soles on the bottom make these slippers great to use inside or outdoors.

    The majority of customers would recommend these, with some saying they won’t buy any other brand in the future. Many have praised the shoes for saving their feet. One customer with plantar fasciitis said the shoes cured their aching feet.

    In terms of care, reviewers have said they’ve had success with running these slippers through the washing machine and letting them air-dry overnight. Made for both men and women, these slippers come in an assortment of colors including gray, red, and black.

    Best Slipper Socks: World's Softest Cozy Slippers

    Very Good

    Sometimes, an actual slipper might feel too cumbersome on your feet at home—that's when a slipper sock might be a smart option for you. This pair has glowing reviews from people who love their versatility and ability to travel well as they're small enough to stash in an overnight bag. You could even leave a spare pair in your guestroom to help visitors feel at home during their stay.

    These slippers improve on socks with a foam lining on the bottom that's thin, but comfortable. Since they don't have a rubber sole, reviewers note that they can wear out over time, especially if you wear them outside (which is not recommended). ​

    Best for Women: UGG Australia Women’s Ansley Suede Slippers

    Good

    If you are willing to spend a little more money for extra comfort, consider a pair like this one from UGG Australia. On the outside, you’ll find water-resistant suede and a rubber outsole which makes these slippers fine to wear both inside and out. The interior has a cozy lining that’s made to keep your feet warm without overheating. And to fit everyone’s fashion sense, this slipper is available in 15 different colors.

    Customers have praised the slippers for their comfort and style. Some have also raved about how well-made and durable they are. Note that the sizes run small, so you might want to order one size bigger than your normal shoe size. Others have also warned that they require some “breaking in.” While this particular pair is sized for women, you can find a similar pair for men.

    Best for Men: Tamarac by Slippers InternationalSheepskin Slippers

    Very Good

    Whether you're buying slippers as a gift for yourself or someone else, these comfortable, well-made, and warm slippers are a great option. The simple design looks like a mix between a moccasin and a loafer, and there are suede tabs at the ankles that make pulling them on much easier.

    Another stand-out feature is the thick rubber sole. You can wear them outside and won't have to worry about them falling apart. The shearling lining is warm (although prone to shedding), and the memory foam footbed provides extra cushioning. However, because of the shearling lining, the Cody Slipper makes for a better winter slipper rather than something to be worn year-round.

    Customers have praised the comfort and warmth of these slippers, although some have warned that the stitching can fray and come undone. This version is sized for men, but there is a similar style for women. Both the men’s and women’s slippers come in a range of colors.

    Best Indoor Outdoor: L.L. Bean Wicked Good Moccasins

    If you need a pair of slippers that will work for short jaunts outside the house as well as inside, L.L. Bean's Wicked Good Moccasins are up for the task. These classic looking moccasins are durable and attractive, and will stand up to everything from morning walks with the dog to chasing kids around the living room.

    Named "wicked good" for a reason, these slippers are made from sheepskin and have a soft shearling lining that's designed to wick away moisture. The memory foam footbed ensures a comfortable fit—even when you're wearing them for hours at a time—and the hard sole offers the perfect amount of support. Most customers rave about the quality of this shoe, noting how comfortable and warm they feel no matter the temperature outside.

    This version is for men, but the women's version is almost identical in terms of appearance. It's made with the same materials and offers similar color choices. Both offer a wide width, too.

    Best Versatile: Parachute Quilted Slippers

    A common complaint with some slippers is that the interior lining is too hot for the warmer months. Suede, faux fur, and shearling can cause feet to perspire, which can be uncomfortable when you're wearing them for long periods of time. For a more versatile pair of slippers, we recommend Parachute's Quilted Slippers, which are made from a blend of cotton and polyester. Cotton is known for being more breathable than other materials but it's still able to insulate.

    Parachute's slippers are available in two colors (mineral and stone) and five different sizes ranging from Extra Small to Extra Large. The diamond jacquard weave gives these shoes an elevated look, while the rubber soles provide a non-skid base—even on slippery tile floors. Another great feature? You can throw them in the washing machine to freshen them up. Just be sure to let them air-dry afterward. Customers give these slippers high marks, noting their plush feel and absorbent material. A few customers said that the slippers run wide, but this wasn't a deal-breaker for them.

    Best with Shearling: UGG Women's Coquette Slipper

    Courtesy of Amazon.com.

    If you’re looking for major warmth in a slipper, a shearling pair is an obvious choice. This suede pair is lined with shearling and features an updated, cork infused rubber outsole that provides durability and allows you to wear them both inside and outside. They’re so warm you can wear them without socks in the cold and still have cozy feet, but not so hot that they’ll make your feet sweat. 

    Customers have raved about the comfort, with some describing them as pillows for your feet. They do run small, especially since there’s thick lining, so you might want to go up a size (or even two). Some customers have warned that there’s not a lot of arch support, but the overall consensus is that they’re very comfortable, especially for lounging around the house.

    To clean, the company recommends using a special UGG branded cleaner and conditioner that you can purchase at shoe stores or online.

    Best for Kids: Crocs Kids' Classic Slipper

    Shopping for little feet? This is a great pair of slippers for kids. The felt outside is paired with a fuzzy lining that kids will love wiggling their toes around in. The slippers come in five colors: pink, ice blue, cerulean, navy, and grey.

    Each slipper has an elastic band that keeps the slipper securely on your child's foot, so you can worry less about them tripping or sliding. The slippers also have a rubber sole with small nubs for traction, which minimizes slipping and will give you a little peace of mind if your child insists on wearing their slippers to the grocery store.

    Most Stylish: Sorel Women's Nakiska Scuff Suede House Slippers

    If you're looking for a pair of slippers that will fit right in with your stylish athleisure, these Sorels are just the ticket. The exterior is made of felt and suede, which give the slippers a look that manages to be both polished and cozy at the same time.

    The bottom of the slipper is coated in grippy rubber, so you can grab the mail from outside or wear these out onto your deck without getting damp feet or frozen toes. The slipper is lined with faux fur and has a removable, cushioned insole that reviewers say provides great arch support and makes these slippers comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time.

How We Tested

We bought three of our readers’ favorite slippers and our reviewers tested them for 85 hours. We asked our testers to consider the most important features when wearing these slippers, from comfort to the durability of the soles. We've outlined the takeaways so that you, too, know what to look for when shopping.

What to Look for in a Pair of Slippers

Material Opt for natural materials over synthetics. Polyester and other synthetic materials aren't as breathable and can cause your feet to sweat.

Soles For a more all-purpose shoe, consider rubber or cork soles. Rubber is durable, waterproof, and provides good traction. Cork has the same benefits as rubber but is also naturally odor resistant and moisture wicking.

Backs vs. no backs Though backless slippers are no doubt easier to put on, you might have trouble keeping them on your feet if you’re doing much more than going from the bedroom to the bathroom. If you’re up and about a lot, consider slippers with backs instead.

Our reviewers thought these memory-foam clogs were the perfect pick for quality slippers at a good price. Notable aspects, according to our testers, were the “fuzzy and soft” insides, “tough” sole and “foam base that conforms to your foot.” And although one person noted the foam does start to compress slightly after frequent use, the soles hold up well even when worn outside. “There's not really anything I would change about these slippers,” one reviewer remarked.

Our testers loved these slippers for the superior quality of the wool, amazing comfort, and durability of the soles. “The insole is actually contoured for foot support, which is like no other slipper I’ve ever had,” one of our reviewers gushed. Although our testers found the slippers to be “breathable,” one person mentioned the fit was on the snugger side and suggested going a size up if you’re looking for a roomier pair. One of our reviewers also wished they were machine washable. Bottom line? “I’ve owned lots of slippers, from cheap synthetic ones to brand name wool-and-rubber ones like these, but the Haflingers are the best I’ve had,” raved one of our testers.

According to our reviewers, your feet will love these slippers for their warmth and softness, with one of our testers describing them as “the true definition of comfort.” “You'll enjoy walking around your home in these, as if you're practically walking on a thin bed of pillows,” one of our reviewers remarked. On the flip side, they aren’t as attractive as some pairs, according to one of our testers: “They just look bulky and fuzzy on the feet. But they're so comfortable you shouldn't really care.” One of our reviewers also mentioned the bottoms make a sticking noise on hardwood floors.
