Birdies Slippers’ Goldfinch Review: Slippers You Can Wear Outside

Birdies’ Goldfinch slip-ons are slippers that are sturdy (and stylish) enough to wear out of the house.

The Goldfinch Review:

Price and Where to Buy the Goldfinch: The Goldfinch slippers are available on Birdies’ website for $140.

How the Goldfinch Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. The Goldfinch is part indoor shoe, part slipper. It looks like a stylish slip-on, and has a sturdy enough sole that you can wear the shoes outside, but they’re so comfortable that you’ll want to swap them for your regular shoes whenever you come home.
  • Value: 7/10. These indoor shoes are not inexpensive, but they have an attractive embroidered design and are made from quality materials that make them worth the price tag.
  • Durability: 9/10. The Goldfinch is Birdies’ vegan model, and is made from durable materials, including a tough rubber outsole. The interior is lined with a faux shearling that is incredibly cozy (just like your favorite slippers).
  • Portability: 10/10. The Goldfinch slip-ons are lightweight and slim, and can be easily packed so you can wear them in your hotel room (or out on a walk).
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The design looks like a classic smoking slipper and is very on-trend (plus the black and gold pairs well with everything).

Final Verdict: Birdies Slippers’ Goldfinch slippers are the perfect airplane shoe. Wear them while walking around the airport, slip them off easily at security, and be comfortable on the plane.
