You know you already have a pair. Those fluffy bunny slippers tucked under your bed. Now’s the time for an upgrade to slippers that provide the underfoot cushioning and support that you enjoy in your everyday shoes.
Why Softer Is Better
After a long day on the job, slippers with a soft cushioned footbed can provide some welcome relief for sore, aching feet. However, not all cushioning is created equal. While cushioned slippers may feel the same, some are made with higher-end materials that won’t break down after time, providing long-lasting comfort. Styles with memory foam are another slipper upgrade, since they will conform to the contours of your foot for a customized fit.
Firm Can Be Fantastic
For some, a firmer footbed can enhance the at-home comfort experience. Styles with more pronounced arch support can offer relief from foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, while a deep heel cup can enhance stability.
A Case for All Occasions
Since we’re always on the go, look for slippers with durable bottoms that easily transition from indoors to outdoors. You won’t have to change your shoes for a coffee run to Starbucks or meeting the kids at the bus stop. These street-ready outsoles will also prevent slipping on wood floors indoors.
