Shoes aren’t just for outside anymore, and when you’re taking it easy after work or over the weekend, the best house shoes can be that final piece of the puzzle to achieve optimal comfort as you chill in front of the TV, with a book, or playing games with the family. These slippers are an excellent for keeping your feet warm and toasty on the sofa and also save you lacing up just to take the trash out. Comfortable, convenient, and ever so cozy, house shoes are something everybody should own, men and women alike.
The Best House Shoe
Our number one pick for the best house shoes around is the Tamarac by Slippers International Men’s Cody Sheepskin Slipper. These boast a welcoming memory foam footbed that conforms to your foot, while the twin elastic sides keep the foot secure.
The sole is suitable for lounging around the house or running out to the store, but they can’t handle too much wear. Still, they’re warm and comfortable, and are excellent for those days where bare feet or old socks just won’t cut it, and they go great with a pair of pajama pants and an old sweatshirt as you catch up on your shows. Make sure you also check our guide to the best slippers for men.

The RockDove Women’s Original Two-Tone Memory Foam Slipper is an easy slip on shoe for wearing around the home. The memory foam insole welcomes your foot and remembers its shape to provide optimal comfort, while the anti-slip rubber outsole keeps you stable on slippery surfaces both inside and out to prevent injury, which is especially useful for elderly wearers.
It runs a little small, so go for a half a size higher than you normally do to enjoy the softness and comfort these slip ons provide. If the rest of your family eye them with envy every night, you can buy them matching pairs so you can all feel as relaxed as one another and sink into the cloud of tranquility these offer.

For a low-budget but still satisfying option, the Sorel Men’s Falcon Ridge Slipper is a great choice for getting into chill mode. The removable insole allows you to customize it to suit you, while the rubber outsole gives you traction when running out to take in the laundry.
Its chain-stitched seams ensure longevity and durability, but above all, it is a comfortable house shoe that is well-built and cruelty-free, with a faux-fur lining to put your mind at ease. Your feet might get a little sweaty sat by the fire, but that’s all part of the cozy experience. You may also like to check our guide to the best slippers for women.

If you’re a guy looking for the best of the best in house shoe luxury, the UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper is the premium option to go for. It is water resistant to deal with rainy runs to the mailbox, while the UGGpure wool lining provides forgiving comfort around the foot so you’ll never want to take them off.
The sole is suitable for both indoor and outdoor, and the moisture wicking design prevents your feet getting sweaty in the summer while still staying warm in winter. The style also means you can get away with wearing them further than the end of your driveway, but the insole wears out a little too quickly for our liking, which when you consider the price isn’t ideal.

With an around-the-collar lacing and pile lined design, the Minnetonka Women’s Cally Faux Fur Slipper are some of the comfiest and best looking slippers you’ll ever wear. The simple design is modest but still looks great, and the care Minnetonka put into making them speaks for itself. The rubber sole is also textured, so if you need to run outside for a while, you can trust you’ll stay firmly on your feet.
However, annoyingly, the leather bow has a hard time staying, well, bowed which is a massive inconvenience but if you suffer from idle hands, it will at least give you something to keep them busy, so that’s a plus. Don’t forget to also check our guide to the best slides for women.

Girls looking for house slippers just for lazing around the house with your family, pets, friends, and favorite shows should look no further than the ChicNChic Women’s House Slipper. This low-cost option still boasts great quality and is perfect for a casual night in after a long, hellish week.
The knitted upper is secure while the waterproof rubber sole is flexible to give you excellent mobility, not that we expect you to do much moving around. If you spill your hot chocolate (or red wine) on them, they’re also machine washable and while they wear out a little too quickly, they’re so cheap it’s not a big deal to reinvest in a new pair.

A great option for anyone looking for a simple house shoe at a great price, the Isotoner Women’s Satin Ballerina Slipper may not boast the soft coziness of other slippers but it still makes sure your feet feel great with every step and stretch.
The lightweight material keeps your feet rested while the breathable cotton blend ensures they stay cool. They are also travel ready, making them great for wearing on the plane or on road trips, but the lack of fuzz means they aren’t great for winter, but we’re sure you have some fluffy socks hidden away somewhere that will suffice.

Another high-quality pick is the UGG Women’s Ansley Moccasin which is water-resistant with the tried and tested UGGpure wool insole. To give them flair, the decorative stitching helps them stand out from other options, so while you’re paying a little more, at least people will know why.
The fully lined interior is comfortable and warm, but it might feel a little suffocating for some, and they’re not as breathable as more lightweight options on our list. If you’re dreaming on wrapping yourself in blankets in front of the fire over winter, these are the perfect companion, yes even better than your partner.

A great choice for getting matching pairs and forgetting who’s is who’s, the TOMS Women’s / Men’s Classic Canvas Slip-On are great for wearing around the house and even into town when you need to run some errands. The rubber sole is stable, while the soft lining provides comfort, and its textured upper gives them something a little different from other options.
Despite a slightly narrow fit, they will stretch a little after a few wears, so don’t give up on them straight away. The absorbent insole also accepts your foot like few others around to maximize your comfort and keep you wearing these well into fall, winter, and beyond.

More stylish than most slippers
The final pick of the best house shoes around is the Vionic Women’s Indulge Relax Plush Slipper which come with a convenient velcro closure system for simple adjustability to help you find the perfect fit. The textile outsole allows for flexibility, while unique Vio Motion Support supports every step, even if you’re just going from the living room to the refrigerator.
The plush area wears away a little too quickly, but this is something you can expect with how much you’ll wear them (spoiler: all the time). The arch support is one of the best around for slippers, and the lightweight feel keeps your feet fresh, even if you don’t feel the same.

House Shoe Buying Guide
How We Chose Our Selection Of The Best House Shoes
As much as we love to work, we love to chill out at home even more, so picking our selection of house shoes was easy, especially when we considered these 3 factors.
Brand - Selecting only quality brands gives us the confidence you will find the best slippers for you. Trusting these brands ensures you’ll be satisfied with the product and hopefully get years out of it.
Price - Everyone deserves to relax in style which is why we looked for as wide a range of prices as possible. This is why some of our selection are affordable for all, and others more affordable for anyone who wants to treat their feet better than anyone ever has before.
Reviews - The reviews gave us an idea of how durable, comfortable, and warm the slippers in our selection are, which we think is all you really need when searching for a pair of house shoes.
Features To Look For In House Shoes
Whether you’re looking for women's or men’s house slippers for you or for a partner, friend, or relative here are some key features to think about before deciding.
Comfort - What’s better than a comfortable shoe? Few things, we imagine, so comfort is the name of the game. Fluffy lining is an excellent way to achieve this comfort, but also consider how well the shoe fits, as one that’s too tight could cause discomfort.
Support - A soft padding around the sole and arches along with the collar will provide the support you need. This is useful for those who need support first thing in the morning, and can also give your feet a rest when you settle down in the evening.
Outsole - While house shoes are mainly for the house, you can wear some outside so the outsole must have sufficient grip to keep you on your feet whether you’re heading to the end of the driveway or further to the store.
Durability - You won’t be climbing hills or running trails in these shoes, but you still want them to last as long as possible. Slippers that fall apart too quickly can ruin the effectiveness and comfort and the less durable they are, the more you’ll need to spend on replacing them. Spending a little more for guaranteed durability is worth it in the long run as they will last longer.
Material - There are a variety of different materials used for house shoes ranging from suede to faux fur. Find a material that suits you best and offers the comfort you desire. The upper material is just as important as the insole, and if you need to wear the shoes outside at any point, waterproof materials are great for keeping your shoes in top condition should you need to venture out in the rain. Likewise, the inner material provides warmth to keep your feel feeling great when the weather gets cold.
