The best slippers for men are game changers when it comes to optimal at-home comfort. They’re the most comfortable men’s shoes with extra padding when you’re walking around the house on a Saturday, taking out the trash or making do as your work-from-the-kitchen-table shoe.
Now, the internet sells about every type of slipper imaginable, which gives you reason to buy either the one best house shoes for you or a few slipper options for different occasions — say, a thick, fleece-lined pair for winter and a lighter pair for summer. Or, you may choose a slipper-sock hybrid as well as pair with an outsole that’s sturdy enough to handle quick trips outside.
Men’s slippers aren’t just comfy, although the good ones are. They can also help with good foot health.
“It is very important to have foot protection at home if you are standing or walking all day on hard surfaces,” says Dr. Miguel Cunha, surgical podiatrist and founder of Gotham Footcare in New York City. “Walking barefoot on hard surfaces for an extended amount of time is bad for your feet because it allows your foot to collapse.” You want shoes that give you this support if you’re standing all day, too.
Slippers aren’t a panacea for this but they can help. The key is to make sure you spend some of the day with some stronger arch support, too. For more short-term use, slippers can be better than spending all day barefoot. Dr. Cunha’s pick, Ascent’s Groove slippers, give your arches more support on hard at-home surfaces.
One of the important details to consider in the best slippers for men is shape. There are house shoes that are shaped like moccasins, some that almost look like socks and others that are backless depending on your preference and the season you’ll be wearing them in. Some have backs that fold down, so you get the best of both worlds.
When shopping for the best men’s slippers, keep in mind not just ailments you might already have and ones that you’re preventing, too, like bunions, hammertoes, and plantar fasciitis. Dr. Cunha says some room in the footbed helps work with those pains. Make sure they aren’t too flimsy, either. If you can bend them in half easily, they’re not supportive enough.
Different Styles of Men’s Slippers
- Slip-on slippers are the most common ones you’ll see, which generally have flatter soles but soft fabrics, like plush shearling lining.
- Moccasins are a little more of a shoe and might be a more comfortable for people with flat feet. A little extra support goes a long way.
- Mules are somewhere in between the other two, often with a little lip at the back but without a full-blown heel. These are often made with wool or faux animal fabrics.
