We tested inside and out to find the best slippers for women and men. Whether you want warm feet while sitting around the campfire or getting ready for adventure at home, these slippers are sure to keep you comfortable and cozy.
Nothing ruins a good time like freezing cold feet. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching the latest outdoor doc or kicking back in a hut after a long day on the slopes, having the right slippers makes everything more enjoyable. Which is why we spent months testing, researching, and hunting down the best slippers.
Below, we’ve divided the list into two categories: camp slippers and house slippers. Of course, some fit in multiple categories, and this list doesn’t include every slipper on the planet. But it is extensive, and we created it after thorough testing and research.
Best Camp Slippers
Whether heading into the backcountry, giving your feet a break from ski boots, or enjoying a winter car camping excursion, these camp slippers will keep you toasty.
Pakems Packable Slipper Boots: $54.99 (on sale via Amazon)
Originally designed as a packable aprés ski shoe, Pakems are perfect for camping, travel, and relaxing after a day jam-packed with adventure. I used a pair during a year-long motorcycle trip and was impressed with not only the comfort but also the durability. Feet will eventually get wet if you stand around in a puddle, but through normal use in snowy, sloshy, cold conditions, these are a winner.
Baffin Camp Slipper: $39.99
A favorite among winter campers, the Baffin Camp slipper is like a sleeping bag for your feet. I wouldn’t recommend wearing them outside on rough surfaces, but if you suffer from perpetually cold feet while camping or find yourself huddled in the tent after a day of mountaineering, this slipper could quickly become your new best friend.
The perfect pairing of puffy and sneaker, the Ember Moc has quickly become a favorite around the office (read the full review here). As contributor Andy Cochrane reports, “The shoe (slipper?) is perfect for campgrounds, backcountry huts, short hikes, casual nights out, road trips, flights, or a quick run to the grocery store.” And our overland tester claims it is the perfect driving shoe, thin enough to allow for fine-tuned pedal use and comfortable for all-day wear. And with a foldable back panel, you can easily slip your foot in and out or pull up the back panel and enjoy full sneaker mobility.
This collaboration with Pendleton comes finished with a U.S. wool outer and Thermoball puffy warmth. The collapsible heel makes for easy on and off while the leather mud guard protects against water and muck. Created in men’s sizes, these are a great option for wider feet and anyone looking for a roomier camp slipper.
Insulated and super packable, the Prism Bootie is perfect for backcountry ski huts where tracked-in snow mingles on the floor with slivers from split firewood. The tough hypalon sole resists cutting while Primaloft Gold insulation keeps feet warm. We’ve used these on hut trips and found them wonderfully comfy and warm. But get them fast! Montane is getting harder to find in the U.S. market, so limited inventory may see them only available direct from Montane (or in Europe) soon.
Best House Slippers for Women and Men
Sure, we wish we were camping every night, but the truth is we spend plenty of time puttering, working, and living at home. Protect against cold feet with these slipper picks.
Olukai Leather Slip-On Slippers: $109.95
Comfortable enough you’ll happily wear them from sunup to sunset and with enough style you can wear them around town, these slippers from Olukai offer just the right mix of warmth and style. The fit is very precise, so if you like wearing a sock with your slipper, consider going up a full size.
These men’s slippers have a cult following, and for good reason. They’re comfortable, durable, and warm without making feet hot or clammy. The natural rubber sole provides plenty of traction, and the removable EVA footbed gives all-day comfort.
Looking for a slipper that won’t break the bank? Check out the L.L.Bean Slipper Scuffs. The lightweight construction doesn’t weigh feet down while the sweater-fleece blend interior and Polartec outer provide plenty of warmth.
For anyone suffering from perpetually cold feet and the annoyance of chilly ankles, the slipper boots from Milwaukee-based Muk Luks are the way to go. The fleece lining keeps toes toasty, and the suede heel kick provides just enough structure to prevent scrunching or slippage. Pair with your favorite leggings for a stylish and oh-so-comfy lounge day look.
