We tested indoors and out to find the best slippers for women and men. Whether sitting around the campfire or working from 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. So we spent months testing, researching, and hunting down the best slippers.
Best House Slippers for Men and Women
Sure, we wish we were camping every night. But the truth is that we spend plenty of time puttering, working, and living at home. Protect against cold feet with these slipper picks. Some of these could also work great for car camping or other winter uses when weight and packability don’t matter.
Glerups Slipper Boot — Unisex: $109-$157
These slippers hit all the marks. They’re comfortable, durable, warm, and breathable. The felted wool is naturally fast-drying and odor-resistant. And the natural rubber sole offers up plenty of traction while remaining bulk-free and still feeling like a slipper.
We really like how the wool molds to your foot over time. These slippers quickly become a custom pair. And while they’re indeed an investment, they’ll last for years. So they’re actually a great value. They’re also available in a slip-on clog style.
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.
Are your feet always cold? Do you dream of a super-warm slipper? Then these are for you. The genuine shearling lining is toasty and soft on bare feet. The sheepskin upper is impressively soft and molds nicely to your feet. And the leather sole provides just enough traction.
L.L.Bean is synonymous with slippers (it literally sells seven pairs every second during December). These keep feet super warm and don’t wear out.
Note: These are very warm slippers. People with naturally warm feet may find them too hot.
Here’s a slipper that feels good and does good. Each pair of Freewaters provides clean drinking water through grassroots projects. Plus, you can feel good knowing there’s no plastic packaging and that everything is made with PVC-free materials, water-based glues, and responsibly sourced leather.
On top of all that, these slippers offer excellent arch support and slip on easily. The indoor-outdoor rubber sole grips well and means you can wear these out on a quick errand.
Comfortable and stylish enough you’ll happily wear them from sunup to sunset around town, these slippers from OluKai offer just the right mix of warmth and looks. The fit is very precise, so if you like wearing a sock with your slipper, consider going up a full size.
For mild winters, these are the perfect house shoe. They allow feet to breathe, are stylish enough to run errands in, and last for years. Each pair is made with full-grain water buffalo leather, complete with a grippy, durable rubber outsole. After several uses, they will soften, mold to your feet, and feel like butter.
But be forewarned that it can take a few wears to break them in. The first time I slid them on, I feared I had made a slipper mistake. But now they’re the softest, most custom-fit slipper I own.
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.
A favorite among winter campers, the Baffin Camp slipper is like a sleeping bag for your feet. We wouldn’t recommend wearing them outside on rough surfaces, as the bottom fabric is delicate. But if you suffer from perpetually cold feet sleeping at night or find yourself huddled in the tent after a day of mountaineering, this slipper could quickly become your new best friend.
A perfect marriage of puffy and sneaker, the Ember Moc has quickly become a favorite around the office (read the full review here). As GearJunkie 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’s the perfect driving shoe, thin enough to allow for fine-tuned pedal use and comfortable for all-day wear. 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.
After a long day on the slopes, there’s nothing better than slipping your feet into a pair of these pillowy, warm slippers. The ThermoBall insulation stays warm even when wet and envelops feet in an oh-so-comfy cocoon.
Meanwhile, the sturdy, real rubber sole means you can actually wear these outside. Whether taking the dog out first thing in the morning or wandering your campsite after a long day backpacking, these booties will keep your feet warm, dry, and comfortable.
These are currently on sale for 40% off.
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 tearing while PrimaLoft Gold insulation keeps feet warm. We’ve used these on hut trips and found them wonderfully comfy and warm.
Best of all, they pack down super small and are so light you’ll hardly notice them in your pack.
Looking for a bit more ankle and leg warmth? These boots might just be the ticket. The responsibly sourced duck down is light, warm, and packable. And the foam midsole offers up just enough cushion for extra comfort. The DWR coating will keep light moisture out, but these aren’t fully waterproof.
And while the sole is reinforced, it’s not ultra-durable. Save these for in the tent or on ground free of rough debris.
