When it comes to men’s slippers, functionality comes first. In the same way they assess a new television or a new car, guys want to know that a slipper will perform. We look for multiple features in one model, and the one that provides multiple solutions to our needs definitely gets picked. This collection of men’s slippers is put together as a one-stop shop for all men’s footwear needs.
With 30 years experience crafting shoes, the team at Best Slippers understands men’s feet, and their unique footwear needs. We know that guys generally don’t buy shoes as often as the ladies do, because the factors motivating their buying impulses are different. For most guys, their impulse to buy is primarily driven by need, whereas ladies are influenced by fashion and trends when it comes to footwear.
Fun Foot Fact: It is estimated that each foot contains 250,000 sweat glands.
What do men look for in functional slippers? Let’s go through the key features men want in their slippers.
Durable and sturdy: Men buy footwear on a need-to basis and opt for designs that are durable and long-lasting, to give us value for our money. If a slipper cannot withstand a little rain, and shrinks or wrinkles when a drop of snow touches it, we are not going to waste time buying it. Period.
Comfortable and breathable: What we are looking for is good slippers that fit well and are available in a wide range of sizes, including sizes for narrow or wide feet.

(Remember our Fun Foot Fact that we just shared?) We want a slipper that allows air in through the slipper material and releases moisture vapor (sweat) out of the slipper, no matter what season of the year it is.
Quality materials and good finishing: Most men are quite happy to pay for quality in the things they buy. It’s for this reason that they prefer slippers made from leather, wool, shearling, suede and other quality, natural materials. Such materials look good on the finished slippers, and are also durable.
Easy-to-wear designs: Men are busy people and generally prefer footwear with minimal fuss. The easier it is to put on, the better. This is especially the case with house slippers. We want to keep it simple; just slip them on and go. Fewer straps, fewer buckles and minimal hand involvement is what works for us.
Indoor-to-outdoor capable: Men like convenience. We just don’t have the time or patience to keep switching our footwear each time we have to go out for short errands, such as to the patio or to pick up the mail. The same goes for weather-proof capability in men’s slippers. We are looking for slippers that can take us through the rain or snow and hold up in those conditions. This means that the slippers must also be non-slip. Good outdoor-capable men’s slippers must have a weather-proof sole, that has an anti-slip outsole. This allows for safe indoor-to-outdoor transitions over multiple surfaces.
Warm slippers for cold weather: Slippers that have good insulation in chilly weather. Slippers made from wool, felt, shearling are top favorites in cold weather.
Summer slippers for men, suitable for hot weather: After several cold months of being enclosed in wool and fleece products from head to toe, we all look forward to summer when we can set our feet free in open slippers and sandals. This is the time men look for light, open sandals that will work with our summer wardrobe of shorts and T-shirts.
With arch support: The arches of our feet are responsible for absorbing impact as we walk and take the brunt of the pressure exerted on our feet with each stride. Men need to pay particular attention to the arch support of their slippers, because they tend to have intense work days, earning a living and basically keeping the world running. If you’re spending a lot of time on your feet as you work, you can easily strain your foot arches without realizing it.
