The convenience created by indoor-outdoor slippers for men really simplifies life for you. When you don’t want the hassle of changing from indoor slippers to outdoor shoes, and then back again, you need a slipper model that combines the features needed to allow you to move from one environment to the other with minimal stress.
At Best Slippers, we realize that men want easy convenience in their lives. They just don’t have the patience to keep switching their footwear each time they have to go out for short errands, such as to the patio or to pick up the mail.
But what happens if your favourite bedroom slippers are too delicate to use outside? Perhaps because they are white and stain very easily; or because the sole is rather thin, so you feel every tiny object you step on. Or worse still, the sole doesn’t have adequate grip on its profile, so you cannot dare venture anywhere outside of your bedroom with them?
Short of having two to three pairs of slippers and shoes on stand-by to take you from place to place, in & around your house, the options for versatile footwear can be limited.
Best Slippers have sorted out this dilemma for you: They have done some research and come up with slippers that combine the warmth and comfort of indoor slippers, with the water-proof and weather-proof functionality of outdoor shoes. Best Slippers have put together a collection of slippers for men, that are suitable for indoor use as well as for going outside. These slippers have a unique combination of features that make them excellent for both environments. Let’s take a look at the basics of these features next.
Features of Indoor-Outdoor Men’s Slippers
- Weather-proof soles: Weather-proof soles tend to be crafted from rubber, EVA or leather. These materials are preferred when making men’s slippers because they make attractive finishes for the men’s slippers. In addition, they are favourites due to their ability to withstand the weather elements such as snow, rain and heat from the sun. Take a look at some options here.
Water Resistant Upper: An important quality of men’s slippers is the material that the upper part of the slipper is made from. It’s really important that slippers intended for indoor-to-outdoor use be able to remain relatively dry in wet weather, or at least possess the ability to repel moisture. For this reason, the favoured slipper materials tend to be wool felt, leather, suede and shearling.
Our Wool Felt Slippers are naturally water-resistant, repelling moisture vapor through its fibers and making it resistant to rot, mold, and mildew. Wool felt can hold up mild wetness and regains its shape once dried.
Leather slippers are a popular favourite for people who have active jobs or need shoes that will give their feet extra comfort and protection. Although leather slippers do have a higher price tag, the numerous benefits it inherently carries are worth spending the extra amount on them. Leather is breathable, durable and water resistant. Leather is great in keeping your feet dry from any spills or puddles. Shearling slippers for men have a suede like finish on the upper slipper, with the inner lining made entirely from soft, very fluffy wool. This makes the slipper naturally water-resistant and an excellent insulator. Nothing beats cold like shearling leather. Shearling slippers have a wide range of benefits: the wool contains lanolin which acts as a natural moisturizer and makes it antibacterial; it is also isothermal—cool in summer and warm in winter; durable and retains its shape over many years; hypoallergenic and itch-free; it is also flame resistant, static-free, and resistant to both wrinkles and soiling. All these characteristics make shearling slippers the perfect choice when it comes to indoor-outdoor footwear for men.
Slip resistant soles: Men’s slippers with slip inhibitting profiles on their soles tend to be ideal for multiple surfaces. They provide good grip and stability for you as you walk. These kinds of soles keep you safe whether you are walking over indoor tiles in the kitchen and living room, or if you need to go outside. They are great because you can navigate multiple surfaces safely, both inside the house and outside, on dry or wet surfaces, like when it has rained.
When you are making your design choices, it’s important to go through the slipper descriptions to be sure that your choice comes with the anti-slip profile, and also look at the different photos of the slipper to be sure that what is described matches the picture of the slipper’s sole.
