How did we choose?
Nothing like, during these cold winter days, to go home and pamper your toes in soft and warm slippers, for a cozy and comfortable evening. But the slippers come in many forms and at very variable prices, which can often complicate the purchase.
Don’t worry: here are a few tips to help you decide which slippers are right for you.
First, it helps to determine which type of model is best for you:
- Slippers : they typically cover the front of your foot, and are open at the back. Very easy to put on, they may however keep your toes a little less warm during the coldest months, and hold a little less on the feet.
- Slippers to put on : this time they cover the entire foot. Flexible, you can slip in and out easily, since they are not equipped with laces. They will keep you warm in winter. They sometimes come in the form of ankle boots , rising higher on the ankle.
- Charentaises : traditionally from the Charentes and made from felt residues, they generally have a rigid sole, and cover the entire foot. They are often recognizable by the tongue going up on the front of the foot.
- Moccasins : traditionally made of animal skin and revealing the seams, they are light and durable, and often suitable for partially outdoor use.
Then, you will need to choose a pair according to the material (depending on the season in which you want to wear your slippers, while preferably opting for breathable materials) and the use you intend to make of it: a solid sole and durable will be necessary if you want to wear your slippers outside, for example.
We therefore took these various elements into consideration during our research, which led us to preselect around twenty models. We then consulted various reference sites and blogs in the French and English speaking worlds, and we were helped by the many consumer returns.
It is thanks to these analyzes that we were able to determine which are currently the 5 best men’s slippers available on the European market.
The best cheap men’s slippers
It is very easy to find many entry-level models, but their quality is likely to vary quite considerably.
The two pairs that we have included stand out for their comfort and will keep your feet warm during the coldest months.
Estro Frost : the best cheap
Easy to put on, these leather slippers can be chosen with or without an inner wool lining. Light and warm, they have a memory foam interior and are available in various timeless colors.
Open at the back, they are easy to put on, and require no effort or manual help. They effectively protect your feet, and especially your toes, from the cold.
The outer lining is leather. Although the brand claims that it is genuine leather, some users seem to strongly doubt it, especially since no label attesting to this is affixed to the shoes.
That said, they are no less comfortable. A little stiff at first, they soften and adapt to the shape of your feet quite quickly.
In addition, they are equipped with memory foam, able to adapt to the shape of the foot, absorb shock in the heel by cushioning each step and improve blood circulation.
The synthetic sole is quite hard but remains comfortable, without being most durable.
The little more interesting is that the slippers are offered in two versions: a “normal” version for the months with milder weather, as well as a second with a sheep wool lining to keep your feet warm during the freezing winter evenings!
Each version is also available in three colors: brown, gray and black (with and without wool). Timeless, classic colors that will undoubtedly suit most of you.
Andres Machado Alpino : cheap alternatives
These slippers have a felt top, ideal against the cold, and rubber soles. Like most slippers, they have no closure system, just put them on! In addition, they are available in many sizes and various colors.
The slippers cover the top of the foot well without becoming annoying, which is a nice advantage. They are designed to hold on to the foot with a slightly raised sole for better comfort in the heel, but also in the back (thanks to an ideal posture).
The sole has the good taste of being non-slip and is quite thick, without sacrificing anything in terms of flexibility. In addition, who says thick sole, says better insulation of cold floors. These slippers therefore keep feet warm.
They are made from 70% wool and 30% polyester, resulting in a very comfortable felt. On the other hand, it would seem that it is not the most durable. Indeed, some users notice that the felt is pierced fairly quickly. It all depends of course on the use you will make of your slippers.
Unisex, they are available in many sizes, ranging from 26 to 50! That said, note that, according to users, they tend to be pruned a bit large.
Finally, as they come in fifteen different colors, everyone should find their preference.
Although it is a pity that the lifespan of these slippers is limited, they remain very appreciated by consumers and delight them by the wide choice of size, their very good insulation and their non-slip and comfortable sole.
The best mid-range men’s slippers
In this category, both quality and price are on the rise.
The slippers we have included come from well-known brands that are highly appreciated by consumers.
Tom Berkeley : the best mid-range
These slippers, very popular across the Atlantic, are distinguished by their solid and durable sole, their possible use indoors and outdoors, and their very comfortable fleece in faux sheep, for feet warm in winter.
It is therefore an ideal pair if you are looking for versatile slippers, which you can wear both inside your house and outside. Note that they will obviously be more durable, worn indoors, in less harsh conditions.
The rubber sole is very thick and solid, which many appreciate for walking with ease. Others, however, find it a little too hard for a sole of slippers. Nevertheless, it absorbs shocks very well, which makes the liner all the more comfortable.
Easy to put on, the slippers effectively protect the foot, and are reinforced with a small buttress at the back. The black faux fur lining is there to keep the foot warm and is very soft. They are therefore great to wear in winter.
If their design is simple enough, it has the advantage of being versatile. Several colors are also available, including for example a very traditional checkered model !
Finally, a significant advantage when buying a pair of Berkeley is the participation in the One for One action developed by the brand. Indeed, for each pair purchased, it offers help to a disadvantaged person. So, that’s all good: we give pleasure to her little feet, and to a stranger in need!
Sorel Falcon Ridge : mid-range alternatives
These slippers offer a suede leather upper combined with a wool and acrylic lining. The insole is made of foam and thus offers great comfort, while the natural rubber sole is there to ensure excellent grip on the ground.
In addition, these slippers keep your feet warm, and are therefore perfect for freezing winter evenings or to simply brave the tiles a little too cool. The padding is also very comfortable.
The sole gives the impression of wearing shoes at the outer sole and being barefoot at the inner sole, which is a real plus. In addition, it is silent: no tiresome noise or creaking when walking with it.
However, users point out that the choice of the ideal size is quite difficult: the brand is quite small, which can be restrictive when buying online.
The design of these slippers is quite original. They have a large seam giving them a raw and solid appearance at the same time.
Several colors are available in fairly sober tones. The color of the fur also changes to marry rather happily with the color of the slipper chosen.
On the other hand, this model has lost the first place because of its apparently variable lifespan: if many users applaud the latter, many are dissatisfied with it, especially given the higher price.
The best high-end men’s slippers
In this category, only one pair of slippers seemed to us to justify its high price by its comfort, its elegant design and its flexibility.
UGG Ascot : the best high-end
Very well made, these leather slippers with wool lining are like real indoor shoes. Warm and comfortable, they embed an elegant and pleasant design, all for a very decent life.
Easy to put on, they cover the foot perfectly, like classic shoes. The leather or suede exterior , depending on your preferences, is of high quality, and the rubber soles are durable and allow you to wear your slippers wherever you want.
On the other hand, these are apparently a little thin and narrow compared to the rest of the shoe, which can cause, in the long term, a problem of wear on the ends of the liner. However, this should not be a major concern if you only wear them indoors.
Otherwise, if you take care of them, these slippers should accompany you faithfully for several years, which, given their price, is rather good news.
The wool lining, in addition to giving the shoe a cozy appearance, is really comfortable and brings pleasant warmth to your feet, which is particularly appreciated during the colder months. These are really warm and comfortable slippers.
If the slippers seem to cut small at first, it would seem, according to user feedback, that they will eventually adapt after a few days of wearing.
Finally, if the colors offered remain sober, this allows you not to get tired of them. In view of the apparent manufacturing quality and their appreciated design, it is a good thing: they may follow you for several years.
Bigu : available in various colors, from the most versatile to the most cheerful, these slip-on shoes are light and comfortable to wear. Made of synthetic material but breathable, they are very easy to clean with water, and can be used indoors and outdoors. They are particularly practical at the beach or the pool! By cons, for outdoor use, the soles are very thin, and according to users, it is quite difficult to get the right size the first time.
Hanes : although a little less popular than the models included in our selection, this pair of slippers, portable indoors and outdoors, has something to seduce. Users particularly appreciate the practical and durable non-slip rubber soles. By cons, it is at the heel that the shoe hurts, since many find the shoe uncomfortable in this place. This slight discomfort is however slightly compensated by the memory foam and the plush lining, which keep the feet warm.
Deer Stags Nordic : these suede slip-on moccasins edged with faux fur keep your feet warm in winter – or even a little too warm, as they seem to tend to sweat. On the other hand, comfort remains very present, and the aesthetics of the slippers, which are available in various colors, pleases many consumers.
Glerups : these woolen slippers, felt style, have a leather sole. They have the advantage of being both warm and breathable, to ensure undeniable comfort. In addition, they are very light, and quiet when you move. Finally, their fairly minimalist design appeals, and they also exist in ankle boots version . Too bad, once again, that it seems to be difficult to find the right size, and that their price remains quite high.
In conclusion, which men’s slippers to choose?
Toms Berkeley slippers are the best choice for indoor and outdoor use. With their faux sheepskin lining and rubber sole, they are very comfortable and have a nice all-round design. In addition, thanks to the One for One campaign, the brand undertakes to provide, for any purchase, a pair of shoes to a poor person!
For indoor use and at a low price, the Estro Frost are an excellent choice. Easy to put on, light and very comfortable, they are available in a “leather” finish with a simple interior or padded in wool, to keep the cold seasons warm!
Finally, the UGG Ascot shine with their comfort, the quality of their manufacture and their elegant design. With their leather uppers and their woolen inner lining, they keep your feet warm during the colder months. On the other hand, although they are durable, they require a more substantial initial investment.
