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 & 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.
These slippers ($155) 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. Get them for $70.
Are your feet always cold? Do you dream of a super-warm slipper? Then these slippers, $89, 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.
Are hot, sweaty feet your concern? Then these could be your answer ($89). The felted wool provides ample warmth, combined with excellent breathability and sweat-wicking abilities. The suede bottom is plenty grippy and we liked the true slipper feel. Not bulky or clunky sole here.
And to top it off, you can feel good knowing these are made with 100% New Zealand wool and made in a Fair Trade facility in Nepal.
Sorel is known for making winter-ready boots, so it’s no surprise its slippers are cozy, warm, and built to last. The Out ‘N About slipper ($80) has a waterproof rubber sole for those days you need to run out for a cup of coffee. And the shearling lining is toasty, soft, and comfy.
Part sneaker, part slipper, these slip-ons ($90) will keep you warm and dry no matter what. The Chevron outsole maintains excellent grip even in wet conditions. And the wool upper keeps toes toasty. Whether you’re an Alaskan fisherman looking for a comfortable deck shoe or a lower-48 outdoorsman looking for a durable slipper, this slip-on has you covered.
This slipper ($85) rides the line between house shoe and boot. The shearling liner is warm and delightfully squishy. The rubber sole is burly and ready for anything. They’re not the best for lightly sneaking around the house, but when you need to tromp to the mailbox or dash out for morning chores, these are a winner.
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 ($50) 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 ($75) 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 ($60). 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.
Insulated and super packable, the Prism Bootie ($55) 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.
