The humble slipper is making a comeback
Gone is the time when slippers were simply functional garments for keeping your feet warm in the colder months. These days, men's slippers are much more stylish and come in a variety of guises. From trainers to loafers to designer moccasins, there is plenty of choice out there so you can choose the perfect footwear for your loungewear collection. Grab a pair for yourself or pick some up as Christmas gifts for loved ones.
Top designers are getting in on the act
Famous designers are lending their expertise to create slippers for men. The innovative designs ensure your feet stay cosy while looking fashion-forward. Check out the range of styles from Polo Ralph Lauren, BOSS, Paul Smith and many more top designer brands offering you a choice of colours, fabrics and materials. Men's designer slippers are perfect for lounging around the house, dressing up other lounge clothes or wearing to run errands.
What style of slippers is best for your feet?
Before you buy a pair of men's designer slippers, it's worth thinking about what kind of foot shape you have. If you have wide feet then a loafer slip on with a suitably low vamp will be ideal. Footwear that hugs the foot snuggly, such as men's moccasin slippers might be uncomfortable and result in your feet getting cold. For narrow feet, you can get away with a loafer of this type and these tend to offer the most flexibility in sizing.
What type of slippers is best for your wardrobe?
The ideal pair of men's slippers will also be versatile enough to complement any wardrobe. Look for styles that work well with jeans as well as chinos and shorts, so you can transition from lounging around the house to stepping out in comfort. Other important features that you should look out for include:
- Fabric - The material will determine how well the slippers go with different outfits. For example, a pair made from leather or suede might be too heavy for summer so maybe choose something lighter instead. Loafers and moccasins tend to work well as they come in a range of fabrics.
- Size - Slippers tend to come in UK sizes but this doesn't always mean that they are suitable for everyone. If you have larger feet, make sure you check the manufacturer's sizing guide before making a purchase. You might find that you need to wear a size or half size bigger to get the best fit for your feet.
- Style - To complete your loungewear look, you might want to consider slippers that are suitable for wearing outside. For example, slippers with rubber soles will mean you can walk around your home without getting the carpets dirty or slipping over on polished flooring. Slides are also a great choice if you like to step out into the garden for a breath of fresh air.
- Comfort - Think about how much support your feet need when deciding on the best pair of slippers for you. For example, if you suffer from ankle or leg problems then orthopaedic insoles can improve comfort and support where it's needed most. A memory foam insole will provide the ultimate in luxurious comfort. Think about the upper - do you prefer a low-cut slipper or opt for more supportive slipper boots?
