Comfortable, functional, breathable and warm, the best slippers to wear at home join features essential for everyday wear. The styles don’t need to match your outfit, but they can match your lifestyle with a variety of materials and silhouettes, from luxurious leather shoes lined with wool to comfortable knit slip-ons that are breathable and cool. These are our favorites for wearing around the house this season.
L.L. Bean Wicked Good Mocassins
Whether you're trekking from the bed to the bathroom or down the block for a quick bagel run, L.L. Bean's Wicked Good Moccasins are, as the name implies, wicked good. They're lined with luscious Australian merino sheepskin to keep your feet swaddled in a vessel of warmth. When you do need to make walk further than the confines of your home, the memory foam footbed and arch support will get you through comfortably.
Quoddy Fireside Leather-Trimmed Shearling-Lined Suede Slippers
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 shearling lining and Vibram soles.
The North Face Thermoball Eco Traction Mule
Best Affordable Slippers
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.
Uniqlo Waffle Slippers
These cotton slippers are as comfortable as they are affordable. They feature double-layered insoles and a breathable waffle knit upper — and for $15, they’re a steal.
Born in the locker room and still kicking decades later, the Adidas Adilette is a classic poolside slide that's found favor around the home. They're waterproof, still made in Italy and cost just $45.
Thing Fabrics House Slippers
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.
L.B. Evans Aristocrat Opera Slippers
L.B. Evans has been in the slipper biz since 1841, so you bet they know how to lounge at home. From the upper to the lining to the soles, their classic Aristocrat Opera slippers use full-grain American leather for a luxe experience at a friendly price.
Ugg Scuff Slippers
Shearling slippies would make anyone feel at home. And if any brand knows how to do it right, it’s Ugg.
Minnetonka Moosehide Classic Moccasins
If you don’t want a lined slipper, these moosehide moccasins from Minnetonka are perfect for everyday wear. The soft and supple leather is more comfortable than many traditional leathers for wear around the house and the rubber sole provides traction on smooth surfaces.
Haflinger AT Classic Hardsole Slippers
Comfort and function meet in these classic slippers from German brand Haflinger. The boiled wool upper and double-felt insole are perfect for year-round wear and the rubber outsole provides traction on a wide range of surfaces.
Birkenstock Boston Shearling
Okay, so Birks aren't exactly a house slipper. But neither was the Adidas Adilette and that didn't stop people from wearing them about their abode. These shearling-lined versions of the famed Boston clogs are cozy, easy to slip into and have the traction to take things outdoors if need be.
AE McAteer All Leather Slippers
From the ground up, these leather slippers are made in New York by just one craftsperson named Andrew McAteer. Vegetable-tanned top-grain leather is paired with a comfy wool-felt lining for a slipper that’s premium in fit and finish. Plus, these come with their very own custom-fitted leather case for your home away from home.
Derek Rose Morgan Leather Slippers
Derek Rose has the luxury loungewear game perfected and these decadent slippers are gorgeous. They've got old-school appeal and heritage quality with a full-grain calfskin upper that's terrifically soft and a supple suede lining and soles for smooth shuffling around the crib. Each one is handmade in England and you can't get much better.
