A good pair of slippers is a necessity, and an indispensable part of any man’s wardrobe. Your feet can get pretty cold during the winter, doubly so if you have tile floors. So it helps to have a cozy set of slippers nearby, one that slides on and off your feet in a pinch. And since comfort is the name of the game when it comes to choosing slippers, and – quite literally – the reason you’re even buying a pair, you shouldn’t skimp out. Get yourself a good pair of leather or wool slippers, the perfect combo of comfy, cozy and warm, and your feet will thank you, whether reading the paper and sipping coffee on Saturday morning, or recuperating after a long day out in the show. Here are 10 of the best men’s slippers to pamper yourself this year.
Lands End Mens Suede Moc Zippers
These classic moccasin-style slippers are made from soft, subtle suede, with a rubber outsole that keeps your feet firmly planted on the ground as you shuffle about the house. The warm faux fur lining is soft and cozy, keeping your feet warm year-round, while a foam-padded footbed keeps them luxuriously comfortable. Handsewn moc stitching adds their their old-fashioned, outdoorsy look.
Sorel Mens Moc Dude Slipper
These super comfy Moccasin style slippers feature a suede leather upper with a sweet woven fabric top. The rubber sole features a herringbone pattern, which gives it extra grip, and is made of a vulcanized rubber compound. The Removable molded EVA footbed with faux fur top cover make them super comfy for lounging around.
Glerups Model B
Straight from Denmark, the Glerups Model B are individually handcrafted from a 100% wool upper – a mix of merino and Gotland wool – and fitted with a leather sole of pure calfskin. This two-piece construction makes them ultra-durable and simple, slipping on and off with ease. The double footbed means they are wicked comfortable, and the thick felted wool means they are wicked warm and even moisture-wicking – though we hope you’ll never need that function while relaxing around the house.
Ugg Mens Scuff Romeo II
Who said men can’t wear Uggs? While you would never get caught dead in a pair of Ugg boots, these Ugg slippers look pretty sweet. They’re made of the same legendary sheepskin from Australia that college students (and women of all ages) seem to love. The Scuff Romeo II have a suede upper, a rubber sole, and fuzzy Australian wool lining inside. The insole is 17mm sheepskin. Warm, comfy, and easy to slip on and off – these aren’t your 15-year old girl’s Uggs.
SoftMoc Men’s Unlined Moccasin
As simple as it gets. Back to basics. These moccasins hail from Canada, where they are made from moose hide leather, handstitched, with a double sole for added durability and a padded sole for comfort. The lacing is also adjustable, which isn’t something you normally get on pair of moccasins. SoftMoc boasts of their flexibility and comfort.
Sorel Manawan Slipper
Half indoor-slipper, half-shoe, the Sorel Manawan slippers have a soft, flexible suede upper and soft, wool blend lining. Perfectly warm and comfortable for sitting around the house, but rubber outsole and removable molded EVA footbed make them okay for running out of the house too.
OluKai Men’s Zipper
OluKai seeks to make products that combine the spirit of Hawaii – of Aloha, as they say – with high-quality craftmanship, style and comfort. These ultra-cool Maloa slippers are made of soft nubuck leather, lined with a soft merino wool blend, and have a natural gum rubber on the outside that doesn’t scuff or leave marks on the floor. Everything is handsewn with whipstitch detail. The Maloa’s also come with a Drop-In Heel, that lets you decide if you’d like to slip them on – like slippers – or wear them like shoes; they say in Hawaii, it’s customary to kick your shoes off at the door. Lastly, the footbed is removable to make washing easy and simple. Lounge around in true Hawaiian fashion with these bad boys. Aloha.
ACORN Rambler Mule Slippers
Put these slippers on, and you may never want to take them off. With a suede and wool tweed upper, that is water and stain repellent, they look as good as they feel on your feet, with their fleece sheepswool lining – which is not only super warm, but moisture-wicking, too. The removable footbed is contoured to a natural foot shape, and the rubber cupsoles provide traction for when ice stands in the way of the morning paper. Classy and comfortable – what else could you want?
TOMS Berkeley Slippers
Ultra-casual slippers for slinking around the house or even doing some errands. The Berkeley’s have a woven wool upper, with a faux shearling lining. The molded insole is removable, and there is ample padding throughout, making for a luxurious, cushy fit. A textile-infused rubber sole adds some traction and durability, ensuring the only slipping these slippers are doing is on and off your feet, and not the ground. Choose from Grey, Red Plaid, Navy Fleck and Forest Tribal Wool.
LB EVANS Edmonton MocToe Slippers
LB Evans was originally started in 1804, in the town of South Reading, Massachusetts by Thomas and Amos Evans, giving it the name T.A. Evans. How exactly is became L.B. Evans, we aren’t sure, but the company is still cranking out high-quality footwear more than 2 centuries later. The Edmonton Moc-Toe Slippers are the perfect addition to your feet during cold weather; they slip right on and off, with a suede upper and Sherpa lining that is soft and super warm. The leather is simple-stitched, and the padded footbed means your feet are comfortable. A little bit of history and American-made footwear to keep your feet cozy on Sunday morning.
