8 Adorable Dogs and the Coziest, Comfiest Shoes and Slippers

Stealing them, hoarding them, chewing on them. Why do dogs love shoes so much? It’s an ages-old question that has dogged many dog owners (pun, of course, intended).

For puppies, chewing on a rubber sole may provide comfort from teething pain. For grown dogs, a plush slipper can feel very similar to a stuffed animal toy. Some owners have even made the best out of the situation by training their dogs to fetch them their shoes.

For the November 26 issue cover shoot, FN rounded up eight of the cutest — and best-behaved — dogs in New York to see if they could be caught in action while on camera. While none of the dogs would give in to stealing or chewing shoes (at least not publicly), some happily posed wearing our edit of the best comfort mules and plush slippers.

Using many, MANY treats and working with noted pet photographer Shaina Fishman, FN’s latest fashion shoot takes the idea of the “shoe dog” quite literally. If only human pairs came in quadruples for our four-legged friends.
