TEVA has a lot to answer for; It seems that since the release of their ReEmber shoes, everyone is now making quilted, padded and so-ugly-they’re-cute shoes and boots. From high to budget prices, you can find a quilted shoe AKA sleeping bag shoes to kick around in.

Um, what are sleeping bag shoes anyway?

Sleeping bag shoes slightly resemble a sleeping bag. Now you may not have used a sleeping bag since your Scouting days, so think of a quilted comforter that you zip yourself into, and that’s a sleeping bag. Shoe designers have taken that comfortable item and turned it into a handsome shoe to wear in and out of the house.

How to wear sleeping bag shoes

Many sleeping bag shoes are so well-tailored that, at first glance, they look like a fabric shoe or boot. However, they’re really a “weekend” or “off-duty” type of shoe (or boot), so your best bet is to pair sleeping bag shoes with jeans, joggers, or cords.

Now that we’ve covered the basics of what sleeping bag shoes are, let’s get to the fun part: shopping for the best pair of sleeping bag shoes available.


1. Teva ReEmber


This quilted shoe with its ribbed knit trim is made from recycled materials. You’re looking cool and saving the environment at the same time.
