Going barefoot indoors can be a strain on the feet (splinters, lack of support, LEGO blocks). As we continue to evolve our at home wardrobes for the winter season — slippers are now having a moment. A new essential to the work from home uniform, something we expect to carry on even past the pandemic as many have soles that are versatile for outdoors as well.
Today’s slippers aren’t your grandpa’s slippers (some are … and that’s okay, we love them, too) but today’s slippers also have a fun modern twist. Whether it’s an ode to classic sophistication or streetwear adjacent, we rounded up some of the best men’s slippers out there right now to up your work-from-home wardrobe.
Minnetonka Sheepskin Ankle Boots
Minnetonka has a rich heritage of slipper craftsmanship reaching its ultimate expression in this cozy version. The men’s sheepskin ankle boots are made to stretch to the contours of your feet and wear pattern over time, ensuring that each pair of Minnetonka sheepskin boots fit snugly and get more comfortable as you wear them.
Hanes Memory Foam Indoor Outdoor Clog
Padded with thick memory foam, these slippers are not only super comfy, they also offer Hanes’ Fresh IQ odor protection technology to keep your slippers fresh season after season. The durable, gripped sole prevents slipping and sliding whether you are wearing these shoes inside or outside.
Florsheim Pareto Opera Slipper
The opera slipper takes its history from the court shoe or pump; with its roots in the early 1800s, when British socialite Beau Brummell updated this look for Western European men to wear to evening events. The silhouette has been borrowed here, but the slipper’s calfskin leather upper makes for a much more relaxed fit. The Pareto features leather linings for breathability and a fully cushioned footbed. We like the label’s mid-century modern-dad vibe.
Bring some Hawaiian style into your everyday life with the Olukai Moloa. Turns out “moloa” translates to “lazy,” but we think your feet will be so comfortable in these nubuck slippers that you may have your most productive WFH days yet. The slip-on features Olukai’s signature open-back heel so you can slide into them if you prefer.
Ugg Tasman Woodmont Slipper
Leave it to UGG to pair its classic rubber sole with a 100% wool insole and lining, and a handsome Southwestern-inspired pattern. The Treadlite by UGG outsole and cushioned foam footbed mean that they’re not only comfy to wear around the house, but that these could be your go-anywhere shoes.
Stegmann Essenz Wool Clog
Stegmann has been making wool comfort shoes since 1888, with its roots in Tyrol, Austria. These clogs feature a clean shape, latex footbed, and heel cup for support, while the merino wool blend exterior offers natural wicking, warmth, and odor-reduction.
Toms Berkeley Slippers
Only Toms could make a classic plaid pattern into a slipper that is sporty, casual, and modern. A cozy faux shearling lining will keep you warm and cozy, while the rubber outsole is designed for traction and durability to wear indoors and out.
The lightweight LeMouton offers a 100% Merino wool lining and a 73% Merino wool outer for ultimate warmth, comfort, moisture-wicking, and breathability. That’s combined with a synthetic rubber sole for excellent traction. It’s flexible enough for walking and travel, and can even be used for a light jog or training at your home gym.
Overland Dylan Australian Merino Shearling-Lined Moccasin Slippers
These shearling-lined moccasins are the peak where comfort meets luxury. With a lightweight indoor/outdoor outsole of non-slip rubber, these are definitely an investment you’ll continue to wear once the pandemic is behind us.
