Features of our Best Men’s Slippers
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. A comfortable slipper is also breathable, and men want slippers that do not retain sweat or odors. Our Breathable Men’s Slippers allow air in through the slipper material and release moisture vapor (sweat) to the outside, 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. Our Men’s Outdoor Capable Slippers feature weather-proof rubber soles with an anti-slip profile. This allows for safe indoor-to-outdoor transitions over multiple surfaces.
Warm slippers for cold weather: Our Men’s Slippers for Cold Feet have excellent insulation in cold weather. Ankle-high slipper boots made of soft boiled wool, sturdy wool felt clogs or slippers with fluffy shearling lining are top favorites in winter.
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. Most of our Men’s Summer Slippers are made of genuine leather, which is smooth & skin-friendly despite being very durable & hard-wearing.
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. Our Men’s Slippers with Arch Support actively support the muscles of your feet with their anatomical footbed made of cork, felt, foam or latex. They relieve your feet from stress & straint and preserve highest wearing comfort even after prolonged wear. 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.
