The Best Cozy Slippers for Winter

Call me a #Grandmillenial, but there’s nothing I love more than pulling on my cozy slippers and having a wild night innnn. (Yes, even before Covid lockdowns made such goings on a necessity). The trouble is, not all slippers are created equal. Some aren’t fluffy enough (the horror!); others are too slippery for comfort. So I did a deep dive on SwearBy to cull together the very best of the best for happy feet. I may buy every single pair here. 

Madewell Suede Scuff Slippers

When they call them Madewell, they’re not joking. “I don’t think a day has gone by in months that I haven’t worn these slippers,” raves Madeleine Letellier of these sherpa-lined suede beauties. “They are the perfect winter addition to my WFH uniform — comfy and cozy, made for indoors, but also perfect for running outside to check the mail real quick.” I especially love that they’re backless—i.e. Practically guaranteed to be comfy for years to come, with no blisters in sight.

Toms Ivy Pom Faux Fur Lined Slipper

I long to be the type of woman that swans around the house in maribou-topped high heels…but hold the heels. These faux fur pom-topped charmers get the glam job done without giving me any back pain. “I love these slippers!” says Lauren Manthripragada. “The faux fur keeps my feet cozy, the colorful pom poms add a fashionable flair and who doesn’t love to buy Toms? These days, 1/3 of Toms profits go to COVID-19 support. So they warm the toes and the heart.” Did we mention they’re adorbs??

Glerups Boot with Natural Rubber Sole

I came across these incredible indoor/outdoor kicks at Outdoor Retailer and have never looked back,” says Sasha Wallinger of these 100% wool shoes that can handle alfresco pursuits, thanks to their sturdy rubber soles. “Every other pair of slippers have taken a backseat to these, and I’m writing this during the COVID-19 pandemic so there’s never been a time that I’ve spent so much time in ‘lounge shoes.’ My favorite part about these boots are they just feel so incredibly comfortable every single time I put them on. They wear so well and I never feel too warm in them, plus they are super cute and pair well just about everything I’m rocking these days.”

Ugg Oh Yeah Genuine Shearling Slingback Slipper

When slippers are called “Oh Yeah”—you know they’re good. “I have always walked around the house barefoot instead of using slippers…Then I saw Gigi Hadid wearing a fluffy pair by Ugg not just in her house but out in public, with an actually cute outfit on. It instantly gave me Miu Miu vibes except the slippers were just under $100. I instantly went home and bought a pair in pink and purple,” says slipper convert and style writer Tara Gonzales. “They feel like little clouds on my feet. I even keep one pair outside my door for running errands — they’re so cute I don’t mind being seen in them during my dog walks or runs to the grocery stores. And sometimes, I’ll even pair them with a going out outfit when I need a little extra fluff.”

L.L. Bean Women's Wicked Good Moccasins

No less than three SwearBy editors as of press time have ballyhooed these slippers, which comes as no surprise: L.L. Bean claims to sell a pair every 7 seconds in the month of December. “These are the comfiest, coziest slippers!” says Katherine Kitfield of the premium shearling numbers. “I’ve had them for 2 years, and they haven’t worn down at all.” Kim McNabb has worn them for a decade, literally. “Looking for a slipper that keeps your feet warm and has enough traction to prevent slipping while taking out the trash in the dead of Winter? This is that slipper. Made to last — I’ve had these moccasins for 10 years and only had to replace them ONCE.” *Adds to cart.*
