Your work-from-home wardrobe may be super comfortable, but it also comes with a special set of challenges, none more so than footwear. You should probably avoid wearing your street shoes around the house, but running around barefoot can come with its own complications (splinters, lack of support, LEGO blocks). You want something stylish, but that also offers arch support, fits the contours of your feet, and that has plenty of cushion to absorb shock, especially from hard-surfaced floors. The good news is that, although we’re going for old-fashioned at-home comfort, there is nothing stodgy about today’s house shoes. Below are some of our favorite picks.
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, but 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.
Allbirds Wool Lounger Fluffs
We know, we know: They’re WHITE. Don’t panic, these Allbirds loungers are machine washable and best left to air dry. Most importantly they’re made from sustainable Merino wool, which also offers thermal, cooling, and wicking properties; not to mention natural deodorizing abilities.
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 day 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 its 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.
