Let’s take a look at some deciding factors.
How to Choose the Warmest Slippers for Women
Warm and fluffy slippers are now trending, with indoor and outdoor slipper brands flying off the shelves as everyone prepares for the chill.
Plus, as the holidays come around, everyone is on the look-out for gifts for family, friends and loved ones. Lots of times, we know that cozy house slippers make lovely gifts this season.
Women especially complain of cold feet and spend lots of time and money searching for cozy slippers that will keep their toes warm. The experts at Best Slippers have put together the perfect collection of women’s slippers for cold feet. This collection features women’s slippers that are both beautiful and functional. Here are the most important features of warm and cozy slippers for women.
Slippers made from Wool, Felt or Shearling Fibre are the Best for Cold Feet
The warmest slippers are made of soft, skin-friendly fabrics such as boiled wool, felt or shearling, not just because of their excellent thermal insulation properties, but also because they are breathable.
The Best Slippers range of wool slippers certainly do not disappoint and the store has a large variety of models made from these 3 fabrics. Women’s slippers made from boiled wool, felt or shearling keep your feet wonderfully warm in chilly weather, and are simultaneously isothermal.
What this means is that in cold weather, the insulation properties of wool kick in to keep your feet warm, by retaining the body warmth within the enclosed front. Then, in the summer and in humid months, these comfortable house slippers keep your feet cool and dry through their ability to keep the internal temperature of the slipper constant, absorbing sweat from the feet and releasing moisture into the air.
Another great feature of wool is that it is naturally antimicrobial and deters odor build up. This is especially great for work-at-home women, who spend long hours in their house slippers. The Best Slippers range of wool or felt slippers make the best women’s house slippers because you are guaranteed that as you wear these slippers, your feet will be cozy, ventilated and odor-free in them all day long.
Slippers which Enclose the Foot provide the most Warmth
The Best Slippers for cold feet are those which enclose your foot in them, providing cozy insulation by retaining the body heat within the slipper.
There are 2 main categories used when designing warm slippers for women; partially enclosed or fully enclosed designs. Let’s take a look at each.
Partially closed slippers usually come with an open heel, semi-open sides and an enclosed front. They may (or may not) have a ‘lip’ at the heel, that cups the back of your foot and gives you a firmer fit so that the slippers don't go slapping about as you walk. They are convenient to wear since you just slide them on and go, and usually need minimal hand involvement to put them on. Haflinger®slippers experts have crafted a range of house slippers, bedroom slippers and clogs that are partially closed, and are great for anyone who prefers the ease of wear such designs provide.
Fully enclosed slippers envelope your foot entirely from toe to heel, providing a cozy environment for your entire foot. Some designs like the slipper boots even come up to the ankle, really maximizing on the insulation properties of the natural fibre. Look out for designs by Haflinger® and SHEPHERD, who craft beautiful slippers and slipper boots that are ideal for the cold spells.
Warm Slippers have their inner fabric lined with Insulating natural fibre
When looking for slippers that will keep your feet warm, pay attention to the inner lining of the slipper. Always opt for slippers that are lined with wool, shearling or felt, because these natural fibres provide the best insulation for cold feet. What’s great about having any of these 3 fibres to line your slippers is their odor-deterrent and moisture wicking properties: These characteristics ensure that your feet are comfortable whether you wear socks with the slippers or go bare. No stink and no sweat!
The Best Slippers collection of slippers for cold feet features an assortment of the warmest slippers for women, with each model being both beautiful and functional. So whether you need a pair for yourself or you’re getting the slippers as a gift for someone else, cold feet will not trouble you this winter. You can focus on more fun things like hanging out with your friends and loved ones, sipping on some hot chocolate and enjoying the holiday cheer.
