There are two kinds of people: those that refuse to schlep around their home without house shoes on their feet, and those that have never spent an hour in a black hole of online slipper shopping. Whichever camp you fall into (if you’re a dad, there’s a 99.9 percent chance you’re in the former), we can all agree that staying at home for an indeterminate amount of time due to the spread of COVID-19 means we need all the cozy moments we can get—especially as we intake the news surrounding it.
It can feel scary out there right now, but let’s focus on the practical joy of having slippers: They’re soft, fuzzy, and furry, and they provide a barrier between your (maybe) clean trotters and the floor. One of life’s small delights. Here, shop some of our favorites in a range of styles.
1. Topdrawer Merippa House Shoes, $55
Power clash on your feet with these cozy, plaid-slash-fleece house shoes that were designed in Japan. They’re machine-washable (a true perk for slippers), and roll up into a ball so that you can bring them everywhere you go.
2. Loft Faux Fur Slide Slippers, $17
Slide your feet into these faux fur slides that’ll embrace the bottom of your toes with soft coziness. You only have two bold choices: hot pink or crimson red.
Wrap your feet in these classic moccasin-style, shearling-lined slippers by L.L. Bean. They’re a sturdier slipper with a memory foam footbed that gives you good arch support.
A super-plush slide option, these slippers—which you can snag on Amazon—make it feel like you’re walking on clouds. If your feet are always cold, these will keep ’em warm and cozy all day.
Another take on the classic moccasin, these cover your entire foot and bring warmth from your toes to your ankles as you walk around on all-white fluff.
Slippers with a pattern: These are lined in fleece that’s breathable (for less foot sweat), and they’re lined with memory foam for added comfort.
If you’re on team “the more fluff, the better,” these are for you. They’re lightweight slides, but fully decked out in faux fur, and come in black, gray, or pink.
8. Ugg Tasman Slipper, $100
Ugg makes some of the most OG wool slippers in the game. These simple black slide-ons are super comfortable, soft, and give your feet plenty of warmth.
To let your feet breathe more, these open-toe slides are simple, but still give you the chance to rock some faux fur in different bold shades.
10. Smoko Heated Slipper, $35
Tuck your feet into these adorable, cloud-like slippers that actually have the power to heat your toes. They’re basically like wrapping your feet in plush dumplings.
