Rothy’s regular slip-on shoes are as widely regarded to be as comfortable as slippers, thanks to their soft signature knit fabric. The brand has finally taken the next natural step and launched a slipper line with their merino Slipper. Rothy’s has taken their stylish loafers and lined them with a soft faux shearling fabric that adds plenty of warmth. The slippers still feature a sturdy outsole, meaning you can wear these indoors or out (or even on the plane). Best of all, like the rest of the Rothy’s shoes, these slippers are machine-washable.
Sanuk Cozy Vibe Low SM X Grateful Dead Slippers
Can’t decide between a backless or a slip-on slipper? You can have both with Sanuk’s Cozy Vibe Low slipper. This versatile slipper features a step-down heel that allows the slipper to be worn clog-style or shoe-style depending on your mood. Speaking of moods, these slippers will be sure to lift yours—Sanuk teamed up with the Grateful Dead to make this footwear fun, complete with a bold tie-dye patterned footbed and a debossed Steal Your Face logo.
Dearfoams’ Fireside Slippers
For maximum warmth, grab a pair of Dearfoams’ Fireside Boot Slippers. Made from a 100 percent sheepskin lining, these slippers will help keep your feet and ankles at the perfect temperature. Fold the upper up or down to adjust your warmth level. Go ahead and wear these outdoors—the durable outsole can handle it, and the slippers even come with a one-year warranty.
Merrell Hut Moc Slippers
Designed for post-hike adventures, Merrell’s Hut Mocs are the sturdiest slippers on our list—and they’re also the most packable. Weighing just 12 ounces for a pair, the slippers fold down nearly flat, yet still feature a durable sole that can be worn on rocky surfaces. A microfiber collapsible heel makes these easy to slip on and off as needed.
Skechers Ice Angel Slippers
With a cable knit outer and faux fur lining, Skechers’ Ice Angel Slippers are like wearing a sweater on your feet. The slip-on design makes these easy to take on and off as needed. A shock-absorbing midsole and memory foam cushioned footbed offer plenty of support indoors and out, and the slippers are machine-washable so you can clean them in between trips.
