Six months (and counting) of working from home changes a person...and their wardrobe. Our slippers—once reserved for chilly evenings and lazy Sunday mornings—have been pretty much permanently glued to our feet ever since the temps dropped below 70. So as it stands, we feel more qualified than ever before to share our thoughts on which comfy, fluffy pairs are worth investing in. Here, the 20 best slippers for women.
1. Ugg Women’s Scuffette II Slippers
Multiple PureWow staffers call these genuine shearling-lined slippers their all-time favorites, so they had to top our list. Director of social strategy Aly Owens explains that she was never really a slipper person—until her boyfriend got a pair of these and she found herself stealing them on the reg. “They're so soft and cozy but also super supportive, long-lasting and far from flimsy,” she says. We’d like a pair on our feet, ASAP.
2. SosuShoe Women’s Memory-Foam Slippers
Proof that quality slippers don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg? This pair right here. They’re only $23, but you wouldn’t know it by slipping them on. According to buyers, the soft memory-foam insole and furry interior are just as soft and luxe as high-end slippers. “I actually ended up buying a second pair because my boyfriend kept wearing them,” says director of audience development Sally Herrod. If you invest in a pair, you may want to hide them from your S.O.
3. Sofia Cashmere Suede Trim Quilted Cashmere Slippers
Confession time: We don’t know anybody who’s tried these slippers yet, but we’re seriously considering investing in a pair. After all, most of our fall and winter wardrobe faves are cashmere—so why shouldn’t our slippers be too? These are made from supersoft, 100 percent cashmere and feature a quilted upper and suede trim. In other words, they look and feel so luxe that you’ll never want to take them off.
4. UltraIdeas Women’s Cozy Memory Foam Slippers
The fact that these memory foam slippers have amassed over 10,000 five-star reviews on Amazon tells you just about everything you need to know. Some reasons why customers love them so much? They’re super comfortable, warm and can be worn inside and outside thanks to their rubber soles. FYI: People say they run a little small, so you may want to size up.
5. Halluci Women’s Cross Band Soft Plush Fleece House Slippers
Trendiest Slippers for Women
We’ve been seeing this criss cross strap, fuzzy slipper style all over our IG feed since March, which is enough to make us think they’re this year’s “it” slipper. And senior editor of branded content Cristina Gutierrez totally sold us on this specific pair from Halucci, saying they’re great quality—even though they only set her back $24. “They’re so fuzzy and soft (and don’t shed!) that sometimes I mistake them for my cat when I see them out of the corner of my eye.” Best yet, the soles haven’t worn down despite months of wear, she adds.
6. Vionic Gemma Slipper
Podiatrist-Approved Slippers for Women
As good as they feel to slip on, it turns out most slippers are really bad for your feet. But these ones from Vionic are different. They have the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance because of their sculpted footbed and arch support. “I absolutely love these slippers. They are comfortable and because of their construction, they force me to walk correctly,” confirms one reviewer.
7. L.L. Bean Wicked Good Camp Moccasins
Best Moccasin Slippers for Women
Fun fact: L.L. Bean sells a pair of these shearling-lined moccasins every seven seconds during the holiday season. They’re that good. Director of audience development Mary D’Alessio happens to agree: “They’re super comfy and don’t get too warm—just warm enough (no sweaty feet, yuck). I’m also a bit clumsy, so having good treads on the bottom is really clutch with me and hardwood floors.”
Bed Bath & Beyond
8. Minnetonka Torrey Bootie Slippers
Best Slipper Boots for Women
Want to keep your feet and ankles extra warm and toasty? Then opt for a slipper boot, says fashion director Dena Silver. She recently invested in this exact pair. “They’re lined in super soft faux fur and have a rubber grip on the bottom, so if I have to step outside for any reason I won’t worry about totally ruining them,” she explains. Welp, now we need a pair.
9. Ugg Fluff Yeah Genuine Shearling Slingback Sandal
Best Open Toe Slippers for Women
If your feet tend to overheat easily, you might prefer a pair of slippers with a bit of ventilation. Enter: The Ugg Fluff Yeah Slingback Sandal. The open toe and back portion ensure that your feet can still breathe, while the plush shearling material keeps them warm and cozy. One of the almost 4,000 five-star reviewers writes that while she was skeptical about them at first, after just two days of wear she couldn’t go without them. Just keep in mind that they run big, so you’ll probably want to go down a size.
10. Emu Australia Mayberry Slippers
Best Slide Slippers for Women
Need a cold weather alternative to the slides you wore around the house nonstop this summer? These extremely fuzzy slip-ons from Emu Australia are just what you’ve been looking for. “These are the best sandal slippers I’ve ever had, and I’ve worn through a bunch,” says audience development editor Emily Brozyna. She’s such a fan, she says she only takes them off when she leaves the house or works out. “They are SO warm and feel like clouds on my feet,” she adds. No wonder they’re already sold out in a couple of shades.
11. Sorel Bodega Run Slippers
Best Indoor/Outdoor Slippers
Finally, a pair of slippers we can run errands in (no judgement, please). From the makers of some of the best snow boots money can buy, Sorel designed these with a tough rubber sole and nylon upper that can withstand multiple trips to the grocery store, the dog park or wherever else you want to wear ’em. Best of all? They’re so cute that you won’t be embarrassed if and when you’re caught wearing them in public.
12. Anthropologie Knit Sock Slippers
Best Sock Slippers for Women
Yup, these are just like your favorite fuzzy socks, but with a little more structure. The knit style has soft, cushy sherpa lining that basically feels like a spa for your feet, plus a suede sole to prevent slipping.
13. RockDove Two-Tone Memory Foam Slipper
Most Sweat-Proof Slippers for Women
Just because you run a little hot doesn’t mean you have to forgo slippers. RockDove’s two-tone memory foam ones have a waffle knit upper that lets your feet breathe to prevent sweating and odor. “They fit your feet comfortably and keep them warm without making your feet sweat, even while wearing socks. The soles are nice and firm without being hard and uncomfortable,” writes one woman. Just note that at $22 they’re not the most durable pair on the market. Some buyers explain that they can tear at the seams if you’re not careful while wearing them.
14. J.Crew Suede Faux Shearling Moccasin Slippers
Warmest Slippers for Women
If your feet always feel like two blocks of ice, these faux shearling-lined moccasins from J.Crew will fix that. After buying them last winter, I realized every pair of slippers I’d owned in the past had been mediocre at best. These babies make it feel like I’m holding my toes up to a warm fire (in a good way). And others agree, calling them “the perfect winter slippers” and “the best slippers I’ve ever had.” Psst, they’re majorly discounted right now.
15. Haflinger Wool Slippers
Best Wool Slippers
Between the boiled wool upper and cork and latex midsole for arch support, your feet are guaranteed to feel warm and supported when you pad around the house in these. They also have a completely waterproof sole which means they won’t get destroyed when you inevitably wear them outside this winter.
16. Parachute Classic Slippers
Best Terry Slippers
Made to match Parachute’s best-selling Classic Bathrobe, these are made from ultra soft terry fabric so that your feet can feel pampered, too. With the whole ensemble on, you’ll feel like you’re at a fancy five-star hotel, not getting ready for another day of working from home. Our advice? Go for the stone gray pair since it’ll mask dirt better than the white.
17. Warmies Microwavable Boot Slippers
Best Microwavable Slippers for Women
Behold, the solution to perpetually cold toes. As their name implies, these slip-on slipper boots (try saying that five times fast) are microwavable, so they’ll keep your feet extra toasty. “They’re so ugly they’re cute,” explains former editor Ariel Scotti. We have to admit there is a certain charm to the idea of pairing these plush booties with a matching pajama set.
18. Orthofeet Charlotte Slippers
Best for Wide Feet
Orthofeet’s Charlotte slippers come in wide sizes, which is ideal if you need a little extra room in the toe box. The brand notes that the roomier design is great for people with bunions, hammer toes and neuromas. The ergonomic design of the insole provides support for folks dealing with foot pain or plantar fasciitis too. “I have chronic aching feet and have not been able to wear slippers [until now] because I must wear my orthotics at all times. This slipper’s design allows me to pull out the foot bed and put my orthotic underneath it,” one buyer shares.
19. Emu Australia Wrenlette Women’s Slippers
Best Sheepskin Slippers
Associate editor Abby Hepworth tends to overheat easily, which is why she loves this open-toe style: “My feet can breathe easily and I still get that soft, fuzzy feeling of the sheepskin. I will say they were a tad tight across my feet when I first got them, but it didn’t take long before they molded to my feet perfectly. I wear them around the apartment constantly.”
20. Land’s End Women’s Suede Leather Moccasin Slippers
Best Customizable Slippers for Women
Want to ensure that your daughter stops “borrowing” your slippers even though she has a perfectly good pair of her own? Two words: Monogram them. Land’s End allows you to add up to two initials on the front of your suede moccasins for just $8 extra. They’d make a great holiday gift too, BTW.
