Top 7 Best Men’s Slippers

 #1  RockDove Men’s Original Two Tone Memory Foam Slipper

Award: TOP PICK

WHY WE LIKE IT: RockDove’s memory foam slippers are arguably the best men’s slippers for hardwood surfaces, thanks to their great rubber soles that give good grip. They are made of 95% cotton and have memory foam insoles that almost hug your feet once you slip them in.

Pros
  • Best men’s slippers for hardwood surfaces
  • Comfortable memory foam insole
  • Easy to slip on
Cons
  • Won’t pass as casual loafers
  • Non-waterproof material

These slippers from RockDove tick all the items we’re looking for in men’s slippers. They’re made of cotton and spandex that make the slippers thick enough to be warm in a cold room. Their insoles are made of memory foam that conforms to the shape of your feet, and the support that they provide on your feet feels great after a long day.

What makes this a perfect indoor slipper is its breathability. It’s thick and made of quality materials, but the way it lets your feet breathe with its waffle knit upper sole ensures that you won’t sweat and feel like you’re wearing your thick shoes indoors. It’s also got non-slip rubber soles so you can just as easily use it both indoors and as a casual outdoor slipper. Plus it’s safe for kitchen or cleaning use. You wouldn’t want to use them as the best running shoes.

 #2  UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper – Honorable Mention

Award: HONORABLE MENTION

WHY WE LIKE IT: The UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper merits an honorable mention for its 100% durable leather material and wool insole that makes it perfect as an indoor men’s slipper just as much as a casual outdoors slipper. Plus its treaded rubber sole for added traction.

Pros
  • Durable 100% suede leather
  • Soft wool insole for comfort
  • Water-resistant exterior & rubber sole
Cons
  • Sizing can be a bit tricky
  • Quite pricey

The UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper pairs up a classic loafer style with a great soft wool insole to come out with a perfect pair of indoor and outdoor men’s slippers. It looks perfect for a casual day at the office and would feel just as great when you wear it once you get home from a tiring day.

One thing to note is you might have a hard time with its sizing—they don’t offer half-sizes, and it might be a hit-or-miss getting your exact size down. Just know that you got your size right even if it fits tight at first. It’s also priced higher than others on this list, but it’s very well worth it. Buy slippers from reputable slipper makers, just as you would buy the best sneakers from the best running shoe brand.

 #3  Amazon Essentials Men’s Leather Moccasin Slipper

Award: BEST DESIGN

WHY WE LIKE IT: The Amazon Essentials Men’s Leather Moccasin slipper is an excellent option to use at home. Its attractively understated design is also adequate for light outdoor use—the insole isn’t too thick so you won’t feel like you’re stepping on pillows outdoors, and the rubber outsole gives enough traction and protection.

Pros
  • Lightly padded insole for comfort
  • Rubber outsole is sturdy
  • Snug fit
Cons
  • Padding isn’t as thick as others
  • Construction quality could be better

Amazon Essentials’ Men’s Leather Moccasin slippers would be perfect if you’re looking for a pair that looks good and can keep up with light outdoor use. This men’s slipper is designed with an excellent rubber outsole and a genuine suede upper, making for a decent casual outdoor moccasin. Its design is simple enough that it won’t attract too much attention whether you use it indoors or outdoors.

While it doesn’t have relatively thick foam paddings like the others on this list, it’s snug enough on your feet that you won’t worry about it slipping off while outside. However, the rubber sole is quite sturdy but easily fades, so make sure you only wear it for light outdoor use. You can even use the best fabric markers to draw on them if you want.

 #4  Zigzagger Fuzzy Microsuede Moccasin Men’s Slippers

Award: BEST FOR OUTDOOR USE

WHY WE LIKE IT: We consider the Zigzagger’s Fuzzy Microsuede slippers to be the best men’s travel slippers on this list. They have a thick rubber sole that’s waterproof and easy to clean, as well as a high enough profile so that the non-water-resistant parts won’t come in contact with dirt or mud.

Pros
  • Best men’s travel slippers
  • Comfortable wool-like lining
  • Memory foam insole
Cons
  • Upper part is not water-resistant
  • Sizing could be tricky

Zigzagger’s Fuzzy Microsuede Moccasin Style Men’s Slippers look perfect as an indoor slipper and are great for outdoor use too. The contrasted stitching along its side greatly improves its look and sets it apart from the rest on this list, and it also features a lower closed back heel design. That makes it comfortable enough to be snug but a breeze to slip on hands-free.

The best part about this is the perfect balance of ruggedness—thanks to the thick rubber sport sole akin to a hiking shoe—and comfort, with its multi-layer memory foam insole. It’s a pleasure to look at just as much as it is to wear. Moreover, they might be the easiest slippers on our list to clean.

 #5  IZOD Men’s Classic Two-Tone Moccasin Men’s Slipper

  • Best men’s slippers with support
  • Great memory foam cushion insole
  • Rubber sole suitable for mild outdoor use
Cons
  • Sizing might be tricky
  • Might need socks for a snugger fit

 #6  Crocs Classic Lined Clog Men’s Slipper

Award: EASIEST TO CLEAN

Expect to love this slipper if you’ve always loved Crocs footwear, especially their great rubber soles that are extra grippy even on slippery surfaces. It is arguably the ideal footwear for kitchen use—just be aware that its insole is a bit tougher than the memory foam solutions on this list.

Award: BEST BUDGET

WHY WE LIKE IT: Hanes’ Fresh IQ Men’s Slippers provide good memory foam cushion and great design with numerous color options to choose from. We enjoyed using this pair best indoors, and we think they come at a reasonable price given the comfort that they provide as indoor slippers.

They also get Hanes’ Fresh IQ odor protection, so you won’t have to worry about your slippers smelling after you’ve used them for some time.

How We Decided

We rated each pair of slippers based on factors like how well the insole material supports the feet,, how comfortable the slippers are, and their overall looks.

Best Men’s Slippers Buyer’s Guide

The Most Important Features to Consider

  1. Insole quality
    When choosing indoor slippers for men, make sure to look for slippers that offer great insole support. You’re likely coming home from wearing a pair of leather shoes all day, so softer footwear like ones with a memory foam insole would be a great way to rest your feet.
  2. High-grip soles
    You’ll want to consider natural gum rubber or synthetic TP rubber for your indoor and outdoor slippers. This way, your slippers will be grippy enough for tiled floors or for when you find yourself walking over liquid spills, and they’ll also be tough enough for when you need to quickly run outside to get the paper or go for a grocery run without changing into heavier shoes.
  3. Soft and warm insides
    A good pair of indoor slippers will need to be warm enough for cold weather and rooms, but not become hot enough that you sweat a lot in them on a summer day. Find a pair that has this balance.
  4. Durability
    Just because your slippers are specifically meant for indoor use doesn’t mean they don’t need to be durable. Great indoor slippers can withstand years of use and provide just as much comfort long into their service as they did on the first day you ever wore them. Quality materials will factor in on this, so make sure that you choose accordingly.
  5. Material and Cleaning
    The type of material your indoor slippers are made of also factors into their longevity, especially since you’ll need to clean them every now and then to make sure they don’t develop unwanted odors. Pick slippers that are easy to clean, such as those that can be safely machine-washed, or opt for water-resistant slippers that will only need to be wiped down with a damp cloth. Better yet, go for a pair of rubber-topped slippers that can be easily cleaned with a brush and some elbow grease.

Men’s Slippers FAQs

What size slippers should I buy?

While sizing can vary slightly across different types of footwear, you’re still going to start with whatever size your shoes are. Adjust accordingly if you like wearing socks in your slippers and choose a pair that might fit a bit more loosely.

What kind of slippers are best for wooden floors? Tiles? Carpeted floors?

While some might enjoy going barefoot on carpeted floors, it’s a better idea to get a pair of slippers that have rubber soles instead. They will work equally well on wooden floors and carpets, since they provide adequate grip, and provided that you keep your floors clean, keep dirt away from them. Plus slippers with rubber soles keep you from experiencing an electric shock when you touch your doorknob after walking around on your carpeted floor.

How do I clean my slippers?

As a general rule, slippers are best washed once every few months. This gets rid of any sweat or oil buildup from your feet and dirt from your floor that might cause odor and transfer to your feet.
