Can’t find your slippers amid all the dust bunnies under your bed? It might be a sign you need to buy a new pair.
Keep the word cozy top of mind when shopping for slippers. Shearling and faux shearling styles are leading the category, taking a cue from the apparel and accessories markets as the material — real or an imitation — is showing up on city streets and designer runways. These upscale looks often pick up durable outsoles, making them the perfect footnote for dorm life, an afternoon in front of the fire while binge watching the latest series or running errands around town.
In addition to being on-trend, shearling is great in that it can be worn in any season. Like wool, it’s both warm yet moisture-wicking. If you’re shopping for a breezier slipper to wear in the summer or after you get out of the shower, opt for a pair made with terry cloth, as the material is exceptionally lightweight and breathable. Keep in mind that silhouette matters, too. Moccasin and bootie styles offer more coverage for the cold months, while backless and sandal-inspired options are ideal companions to shorts and tank tops when it’s warmer out.

Many podiatrists agree that walking barefoot at home, instead of wearing indoor shoes, can exacerbate existing health issues. Slippers are always a good idea for protecting feet against hardwood and tile floors, but those who desire extra support should choose pairs with cushioning underfoot.
