We get that it can be tough to part with favorite slippers you’ve worn until they’re threadbare. But with winter coming, putting them on with socks because there’s a hole in the toe will only go so far when it comes to keeping your feet warm. Of course, you’ve played this game with yourself before—you know, with the previous pair you reluctantly tossed because you swore you’d never find ones more comfortable, until you did.
So read on, as we’ve rounded up some of the best men’s slippers on the market to get for yourself or as a gift for the men in your life.
What to Consider
First, decide whether you want slippers to just wear around the house, or ones with a thick rubber sole and anti-slip treads that can also be worn outside to walk the dog, grab the mail, run errands, or to take camping. Styles include loafers, mules (also called scuffs), moccasins, slipper boots, and slipper socks, and outer materials include leather, suede, and wool, with everything from shearling to flannel lining the inside, plus various synthetic options designed for both. Some feature a memory foam footbed for extra comfort and arch support.
How We Chose
Every pair of slippers we write about has average user ratings of at least 4 stars, and the majority of our picks are rated 4.5 stars and up. Our selection includes a range of styles top name brands, including L.L.Bean, The North Face, Acorn, Minnetonka, Sorel, and UGG, plus we feature options across multiple price points, from under $30 to roughly $120. We also highlight features mentioned above, such as memory foam footbeds and indoor-outdoor soles.

Dearfoams Men’s Microfiber Suede Slipper
These high-quality suede memory foam slippers are an excellent value, priced at about $26 at the time of this writing.
They feature faux-sheepskin trim at the ankle, a breathable microsuede upper and full arch support, and a thick, water-resistant sole with anti-slip traction. The slippers come in black, pavement gray, and the chestnut brown that’s shown.
More than 2,000 customers give them an average 4.6 stars. “Inexpensive, comfortable … feel great, and hold up well,” says one recent 5-star reviewer.
A Step Up
Minnetonka Men’s Pile Suede Slippers
Here’s another smart-looking slipper that’s well priced. These classic suede moccasins from Minnetonka, a company that’s been around since 1946, have thick pile-lining and an indoor-outdoor rubber sole.
There’s a rawhide lace looped around the back to tighten them and tie a bow at the top. The slippers are available in several other neutral colors, including black, brown, and tan.
“This slipper and company have earned a customer for life,” said a recent enthusiastic buyer. “…had them for years now and they’re still holding up,” says another.
Koolaburra by UGG Men’s Tipton Slipper
The Tipton Slipper from Koolaburra by UGG is a fan favorite, with more than 2,100 customers giving it an average 4.6 stars.
The loafer has a genuine suede upper, faux-sheepskin lining, and a sole with traction so you can go from the den to walking the dog without changing shoes. It comes in four other neutral colors, including black and an attractive light tan.
“Very comfortable to wear and they keep your feet toasty warm,” says a 5-star reviewer, adding that he ordered a half size up for the perfect fit. Several other customers note the same.
Best Value Leather
Men’s Leather Handsewn Slippers
From trusted brand L.L. Bean, these hand-sewn slippers offer top-notch quality and casual style for an incredibly reasonable price.
The genuine full-grain leather moccasins feature a warm cotton flannel lining and a cushioned foam footbed, along with a lightweight, natural rubber sole. They’re finished with a rawhide lace threaded around the sides and heel to get a fit that’s more snug. The slipper is available in a lighter acorn brown in addition to the dark brown that’s shown.
One loyal customer whose worn the same pair year-round for six years calls them “indestructible.”
Best Premium Leather
UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper
The Ascot loafer is one of UGG’s most popular slippers for men, and more than 13,000 Amazon customers given them an average 4.7 stars. They’re available in black, brown, and tan leather, in addition to water-resistant suede with several color options, and all feature a genuine shearling lining and molded rubber sole.
Reviewers call them “absolutely wonderful” and “worth every penny.” Many note that they’re warm, but don’t make your feet sweat.
The North Face Men’s Thermoball Insulated Slip-Ons
Leave it to The North Face to make a pair of slippers that are built for cold-weather camping but are just as awesome for shuffling around the house on a lazy Sunday.
They’re exceptionally toasty, with insulation that’s said to be as warm as 600-fill goose down and feature a ripstop nylon shell made from 100 percent recycled material and a sole with 40 percent recycled rubber. There’s also fleece-lined collar that hugs your foot and helps your foot slide in and out easily.
One loyal customer who has owned three pairs in the last 15 or so years calls them “life-changing” and says he wears them on “snowy winter rides” because they “hold up and grip on aggressive mountain bike petals.”
SOREL Men’s Manawan II Suede Slippers
If you’re in the market for slippers that keep your ankles warm, look no further than this pair from Sorel.
The suede booties are accented with contrast stitching and have a wool- and polyester-blend lining. They also feature a removable molded footbed and a gummed rubber sole designed for indoor-outdoor use. The slippers are available in a handful of other colors, including dove gray and tobacco brown.
Customers say they have “an extremely cozy feel with or without socks” and are “expensive but well worth it in the long run.”
Best Slipper Sock
Acorn Men’s Slouch Boot Slipper Sock
Fun fact: Acorn’s Original Slipper Sock gained national attention in 1982, when a crew of NASA astronauts wore them into space. These are slouchier than the original style as their name suggests, but the general idea is the same.
They feature a raglan sock made of wool and acrylic with a hint of spandex, rugged suede sidewalls and toe cap, and an indoor-outdoor skid-resistant rubber sole. The slipper hits mid-calf and is available in charcoal gray in addition to the oatmeal shown.
“They are warm, well-constructed, and very comfortable,” says a satisfied customer who gave them 5 stars.
Best Memory Foam
Men’s Terry Moccasin Slipper
These slip-on moccasin slippers feature a gel-infused memory foam insole that helps distribute heat so your feet stay cool, plus provide arch support and cushioning.
They’re lined inside and out with a soft terry microfiber material and have anti-skid traction soles. The slippers come in black—and the navy that’s shown—and run small. Ordering the next size up is recommended.
Customers say they’re “an extraordinary value and very comfortable” and “flexible but sturdy enough to walk outside.”
Crocs Men’s Classic Lined Clog
According to Crocs’ website, their classic lined clogs are “Great as a slipper, yet capable to run errands, too.” We can’t argue with that, and we doubt that the 88 percent of 48,600-plus customers who gave them 5 stars would either.
They may not be everyone’s jam, but they’re that popular for a reason. The liner is fuzzy-warm and they’re lightweight, with a roomy footbed and heel strap to keep them on your feet. There are more than two dozen colors and prints to choose from, including solids, florals, and plaids.
Customers say they’re “comfy and cozy” and “have just the right amount of arch support.”
Best for the Holidays
Dearfoams Men’s Papa Bear Slipper
These buffalo plaid slippers are a great holiday (or pre-holiday) gift, plus they come in matching options for the whole crew, including “Mama Bear” and “Baby Bear.”
They’re super affordable—at less than $30 at the time of this writing—so you can buy them for the family to coordinate with your matching holiday pajamas. The slippers have a cozy faux-sherpa footbed topping dense memory foam and an indoor-outdoor sole.
Customers give them high marks, with more than 4,200 reviewers awarding them an average 4.7 stars, and say they’re “comfortable and soft” and “fit great.”
