Whether you’re buying them for yourself or as a gift, everyone loves slippers. Supportive, comfortable, warm and soothing, slippers are like little spas for your feet, helping to keep them warm first thing in the morning, providing support when you need to run outside for the mail, or giving your feet a break at the end of a long day of standing.
Slippers are often thought of as gifts to give and receive around the winter holidays, but we love wearing slippers all year round. Even in warm weather, slippers provide added support and comfort on hard floors, with their thick rubber soles being ideal for people who live in homes with tile or wood flooring. Slippers are also a great option for people who don’t like outside shoes being worn in their home, with slippers still providing support and comfort without the millions of germs from the outside world being brought into your home and stomped into your rugs and carpet.
Of course, slippers are also perfect for cold weather. Often lined with fleece or faux fur, slippers provide warmth, which is especially important for people with poor circulation or diabetes, as slippers keep feet warm and help promote increased blood flow.
We often don’t realize how much time we spend on our feet inside our home, with foot support still important after getting home from a long day of work. Slippers that provide support through an elevated arch or thick rubber base help to correct posture and take the pressure off our shins and knees.
Whether you want a pair of slippers for warmth and comfort or to keep your feet feeling safe and supported while spending time in and around your home, we’ve got great options in our list below.
