What’s the equivalent of sweatpants for your feet? House shoes. As the weather gets colder and we settle in for a long winter indoors, it’s time to buy a good pair. If the runways during this fashion month were any indication, a good pair of slippers you can wear inside or outside the house are a necessity. The Row’s pre-fall show paired spa slippers, slides, and flats with trench coats and trousers. Basically, it’s slipper season, and comfort is in.
You could go the shearling-lined Birkenstock route, but if you’re looking for something different, there are plenty of fuzzy slippers, cashmere-lined slides, and sleeping bag-like styles out there. Below, we’ve rounded up 22 pairs of the best, most stylish house shoes we could find. Added bonus: some of these can also be worn outside, even if the furthest you’re going is to grab a delivery.
