Slippers don’t just keep your feet toasty. Sliding on a pair of slippers for men is also the perfect way to relax: As soon as your feet enter shearling-lined nirvana, nothing can throw off your homebody ambitions (except maybe your TV remote running out of battery). Soon enough, you’ll find lots of other excuses to wear them. Tucking your toes into plush slippers first thing in the morning makes prying yourself from a warm bed much easier. And returning home after work, you’ll revel in the sweet relief of ditching your street shoes for some slip-ons.
There’s a dizzying array of slippers for men on the market, including everything from flannel-lined elk hide moccasins to velvet slides best paired with a smoking jacket. But form is just one consideration. Today’s slippers come tricked out with functional features that add comfort (like memory foam footbeds), durability (water-resistant uppers), and versatility (a rubber outsole for jaunts outside). We’ve compiled our list of this season’s top picks to include a little bit of everything, from the luxurious to the more budget-friendly. But all these slippers for men share the same mission: keeping you cozy AF.
The Best Slippers for Men in 2023
1. Ugg Scuff Slipper
Like pulling on your favorite sweats, slipping into Ugg’s wool-lined Scuff slippers signals to the world that you’re clearing your calendar for the rest of the day. Made from upcycled fibers to reduce environmental impact, the comfy wool lining naturally regulates temperature and also does a stellar job wicking moisture, so you won’t have to worry about getting clammy feet.
2. Mulo Suede-Trimmed Corduroy Slippers
Handmade with soft corduroy and suede trim, these backless slippers from Mulo are almost too stylish to relegate to the house alone. Shaped on an Oxford last, they sit on sustainably sourced natural rubber soles and are lined with recycled moleskin that will mold to your feet over time.
3. Adidas Adilette Comfort Slides
Adidas’ classic water-resistant slippers aren’t just for gym showers or lounging poolside. The Adilette Comfort Slides can also energize tired soles at home thanks to the pillowy cushioning material incorporated into the contoured footbed. The one-piece bandage-style upper features the signature Adidas three stripe logo for retro appeal. And yes, you can totally wear these with socks—but inside the house only, please.
4. Fireside by Dearfoams Gold Coast Shearling Mule
The Gold Coast mules are a slam dunk if you’re looking for more bang for your buck with an indoor-outdoor slipper. Toes stay toasty while wrapped in 100-percent Australian shearling, and the cushy footbed will form to your feet for a comfy fit.
5. Malibu Sandals Colony Moc
Best known for its woven Huarache sandals, Malibu also designs a killer collection of indoor-outdoor slippers. This Colony Moc is wrapped with quilted faux suede on the outside and is lined with a sherpa fleece for cloud-like comfort. Unlike other slippers on the market, this pick has outstanding arch support, and the Malaysian crepe gum rubber sole also creates a somewhat bouncy feel.
6. L.L. Bean Leather Double-Sole Slippers, Shearling-Lined
To all the homebodies out there: Know that L.L. Bean—a brand synonymous with hard-wearing outdoor apparel—hasn’t forsaken the couch-bound. The Maine heritage brand doesn’t just sell some of the coziest slippers on the market, it also produces them in a dizzying array of styles and materials, too. This is the most premium option. It’s constructed with a full-grain leather upper and double sole, and it’s lined with shearling for added warmth. The rawhide laces keep this pair looking cabin-appropriate.
7. Grenson Sly
U.K. shoemaker Grenson crafts its Sly moccasins with the same impressive attention to detail as its world-renowned brogues, chunky boots, and penny loafers. These slippers were inspired by the latter—note the stitched detailing and refined silhouette. From the sumptuous Italian cigar suede upper to the shearling lining and padded footbed, the leather-soled Sly offers serious style and comfort to match.
8. Hari Mari Hacienda LX
Hari Mari launched with a collection of flip-flops, but the brand has since expanded its offerings to include sturdy boots and slippers for everyday wear—with one percent of sales donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We like the weather-resistant Hacienda LX, which is constructed with full-grain leather, Texas shearling lining, a memory foam-lined footbed, and a rubber sole.
9. Del Toro House Slipper
Luxury footwear label Del Toro didn’t cut corners when designing its first house slipper. Handmade in Italy with Napa leather and a padded foam footbed, the backless slipper’s refined silhouette alludes to the shoemaker’s hallmark product: the Italian velvet slipper. While the cushy heel is embossed with the Del Toro logo, there’s ample room left for a monogram, so you can brand the shoe as yours—and only yours.
10. Quoddy Dorm Boot
Modeled after the original dorm boot, an ankle-high shoe invented to keep students warm while they bunked in the drafty dormitories of Maine’s prep schools, Quoddy’s post-grad version earns straight A’s. Handmade with top-notch materials in Lewiston, ME, the Dorm Boot features twin-face sheepskin leather and a flexible Vibram rubber sole for durability and traction, plus a fleece lining for warmth. The heels boast pull tabs to make them easier to slip on and off.
11. Olukai Mahana
Comfort reigns supreme with Olukai’s Mahana slipper. It’s cut from a lightweight, lightly insulated jersey fabric and lined on the inside with plush terry cloth for exceptional comfort. Don’t fret if your slippers tend to get stinky over time—the lining is removable and machine washable. The soft hand-stitched upper sits on a non-marking rubber outsole with cross-hatching for extra grip at home, on deck, or wherever you happen to be lounging.
12. Glerups Boot
Leave it to the Danes to design the ultimate winter slipper. This flexible, cozy boot is made from 100-percent wool for a comfy feel and natural temperature regulation (in any season), and it’s paired with a vegetable-tanned calfskin outsole for grip and durability.
13. Under Armour Project Rock Slides
A favorite of MJ editor Michael Charboneau, Under Armour’s Project Rock Slides take your typical slide to the next level. The thick midsole is made with a generous layer of Charged foam for a soft, cushioned feel underfoot, and the burly Michelin Wild Gripper outsole offers excellent traction when you need to step outside.
14. Bombas Cable Knit Gripper Slipper
At last! The king of casual socks has released a slipper that retains all the stretch-flex comfort of the brand’s hallmark product. Though these slippers are technically indoor-only, Bombas placed silicone grips on the bottoms to prevent slippage on slick hardwood or tile floors. They’re also a dream for traveling, since they pack flat and even come with a little travel bag.
15. Sanuk Cozy Vibe Slipper
With their backless silhouette, these Cozy Vibe slippers are the epitome of slip-on, slip-off convenience. Sanuk uses a blend of recycled and natural materials throughout: hemp for the upper and bio-based sugar cane EVA foam for the footbed, along with leather and Tencel. They also wick moisture thanks to the fuzzy wool-blend lining.
16. Beckett Simonon Jones Slippers
Though this pair is a house cat at heart, their EVA outsoles and durable leather uppers mean you won’t have to swap them out for sturdier shoes before running out to the mailbox. The winter-friendly interiors are covered with a buttery soft, eco-friendly recycled fleece lining.
17. Birkenstock Zermatt Shearling
It’s no shocker that Birkenstock’s first true slipper is heaven for your feet. The felted wool Zermatt features the brand’s world-renowned cork latex footbed—a boon for arch support—and an upper that wraps your foot in cozy shearling for plush, warm comfort.
