These cross band slippers are made with lots of shearling, making them feel extra plush. Read More

Pros

  • Stylish
  • Keeps feet warm without overheating
  • Plenty of shearling

Cons

  • Runs narrow
  • Spot clean only

Whether it be for keeping your toes warm and cozy during the cold, winter months or for preventing your bare feet from touching the floor, slippers are a useful thing to have all year long. Slippers are even more of a must-have item right now as many of us are spending more time at home, which is why they’ve also become quite trendy.

With such high demand for slippers, it’s no surprise there are so many options for what’s available to buy. From open-toe to slide on to “shoe slippers,” there are all types of slippers for all types of people, and we tested some of the most popular options to find the best pair for you.

After wearing slippers for a few weeks, we found the Ugg Scuffette II Slipper (available at Nordstrom) to be the best pair for most people. These wool slippers will keep your feet warm without overheating or sweating. If you’re looking for something a bit different than our top pick, fear not. We have plenty of other recommendations for amazing slippers, such as our Best Value pick the Dearforms Sydney Scuff (available at Amazon), which offer high quality materials at an amazing price.

The UGG Scuffette slippers were the best we tested.

Best Overall
Ugg Scuffette II

The popular Ugg Scuffette slippers have been spotted on celebrities and thousands of rave reviews at major retailers like Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s. And after our tester wore them, we understood why. Unlike some slippers, these don’t skimp on the fluffy wool lining. They kept the feet warm and don't make them sweaty after many hours of wear. The Scuffette slippers are basically a giant hug for your feet. They feel great after a long day.

These cozy slippers are easy to slide on and off thanks to the open back. There’s also extra wool at the upper edge of the slipper to keep the top of your foot warm. The sole of the slippers is thin and lightweight, making them easy to walk around in on carpet or hardwood floors, and despite having a thin sole, the rubber bottom makes them feel more cushioned compared to other slippers we tried. Another perk is that they did not slip on a wet floor, meaning it’s safe to walk around the kitchen or bathroom when water might be on the ground. While these slippers did initially feel tight, they loosened up and had a snug fit after wearing them around for a few days.

They come in women’s whole sizes 5 to 12 in black, tan, brown, and pink.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Plenty of fur lining

  • Comfortable to wear

Cons

  • No instructions on how to clean

The Dearfoams offer real materials at a bargain price.

Best Value
Dearfoams Sydney Scuff

Many look-alike Ugg slippers exist on the market, but out of the products we've tested, the Dearfoams were most similar in terms of quality and materials used. The Sydney slippers from Dearfoam are a lot like our best overall pick, the Ugg Scuffette II, but at a lower price, making them our best value pick.

The Sydney slippers are made with 100% Australian sheepskin and, unlike other slippers that just look similar but skimp on using enough quality materials, these had plenty of fur on the inside and kept our feet toasty.

The slippers fit well and are easy to slide on and off. They have a sole that’s made to be worn indoors and outdoors, making them great for running errands and checking the mail. The sole is stiffer, so they do not bend with your feet as you walk, but this isn’t a deal-breaker, as they still felt good to wear.

The Dearfoams Sydney Scuffs are available in standard women’s sizes 7 to 11 and wide widths 7 to 10, in nine colors.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Plenty of fur lining

  • Easy to put on and off

Cons

  • No cleaning instructions

  • Stiff sole

How We Tested Slippers for Women

The Tester

I’m Cailey, the Updates Staff Writer for the Product Roundups team, and I wrote the latest update to this women's slippers guide. Since becoming a full-time remote worker two years ago, slippers have been my main everyday footwear. Because I spend more time at home than out and about, I have strong opinions on which slippers are worth the money, and which are best passed on.

Fabric and textile industry expert Jamie Ueda, our former apparel staffer writer, tested and wrote the previous version to this guide.

We wore slippers for weeks to find the best of the best.

The Tests

After spending considerable time scouring the Internet for some of the most acclaimed slippers at various prices, we put a bunch of products to the test.

Working with Reviewed’s former senior scientist, we came up with a list of both objective and subjective questions and tests to put these slippers through the wringer. What’s the comfort and fit like? Are they difficult to put on/take off? How about at night? Can they grip a wet surface? Are they easy to take care of? What’s the overall experience like? Would we wear them again?

Another crucial element to consider is care. Unfortunately, most quality slippers aren’t designed to be thrown into the washing machine. They need to be spot-cleaned or have no cleaning instructions, which can be a hassle.

When we finished our rigorous testing over a period of about a month, making sure that we wore each pair of slippers long enough to really get a good feel for them, we rated various categories depending on the importance and tabulated scores.

What You Should Know About Buying Slippers For Women

What's the Difference Between Shearling, Sheepskin, and Faux Fur?

Shearling, sheepskin, and faux fur are common descriptions you’ll come across when shopping for slippers, and unless you’re very familiar with these terms, they can get confusing. We’ve mapped out what each of those terms means, as well as the benefits and drawbacks to each of them to help you figure out which one is the best fit for you.

Shearling comes from a young sheep or lamb. It has suede on one side and the wool still attached to the suede on the other. The shearling is treated and dyed to make it into apparel items, like slippers.

Sheepskin is very similar to shearling. The main difference is that sheepskin comes from an older sheep and the suede tends to be not as soft as shearling.

One big advantage of both shearling and sheepskin products that we found while testing numerous pairs was that genuine fur is more breathable than faux fur. It’s also able to wick away moisture from the feet so they stay warm and dry. But this comes with a few drawbacks. Because shearling is real suede and fur, it can be harder to manufacture these types of slippers, making them more expensive. Another disadvantage is that often these products are not machine-washable. They are either spot-clean or have no cleaning instructions at all.

Faux Fur, unlike shearling, doesn't come from an animal. Instead, it's made from synthetic materials of various types. This means we found a lot more variety in how the faux fur felt and performed for each slipper. Some faux fur felt more like silk and had a more slippery feel, while other faux fur felt more like cotton and was more fluffy.

No matter what the faux fur felt like, we discovered during testing that they did not wick away moisture from feet as well as the natural materials, which led to sweaty feet. However, the faux fur slippers tend to be cheaper compared to the shearling or sheepskin slippers, and some are machine-washable, which is convenient. They're also "vegan," which may matter to you. (Though some manufacturers like Ugg are transparent about their animal welfare practices.)

How to Clean Slippers

When testing slippers, we took the ease of cleaning each pair into consideration, based on the manufacturer's instructions. But, while very few of the products were machine-washable, some slippers had no care instructions at all. This generally means that the item shouldn’t be cleaned in a washing machine nor is it recommended to hand-wash them.

A few of the other slippers were spot-clean only, which means to only clean the area with the stain on it. If you want to spot-clean your slippers, you can use a suede and leather cleaning kit or a lightly damp rag to spot clean. It’s best to test a very small area on the slipper in a place that’s not highly visible, just in case the water itself stains.

Spot cleaning may be an option when there are no cleaning instructions, but you’ll have to be careful—especially with genuine shearling, suede, and leather—as these can get water-stained very easily. If you find yourself in this situation, you may want to take them to a professional cleaner to be on the safe side.


Other Slippers for Women We Tested

Product image of Minnetonka Women's Chesney Slippers
Minnetonka Women's Chesney Slippers

The Minnetonka Chesneys faux fur lining is soft, and during testing, they felt like walking on teddy bears. The inside lining is comfortable and kept feet warm, while the outsoles, which are made for indoor and outdoor wear, are flexible and light. These are true to size and don’t feel too tight or loose—our tester found they fit her perfectly.

While we like these slippers, they have a few drawbacks. The soles felt hard underneath while walking, making them less comfortable, though not unbearable. Although fur lines the inside of the slippers, it lacks the toe coverage the Ugg Scuffette II or Dearfoams Sydney Scuff Slipper provides. Also, even though the faux fur did not cause overheated feet right off the bat, after a few hours of wearing them, our tester's feet felt slightly clammy. The Chesneys were our former Best Overall but scored lower in this round of testing, although they're still a great slipper.

They come in whole sizes 5 to 11 in eight colors, such as charcoal, black, and light gray.

Pros

  • Comfortable to wear

  • Soft lining material

  • Lightweight sole

Cons

  • Faux fur can make feet feel slightly sweaty

  • No cleaning instructions

Product image of Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide
Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide

The Fluff Yeahs are extremely stylish and scored well in our testing. They are a cross between a pool slide, fuzzy slipper, and sandal. We found the slippers easy to slide on and off and enjoyed having the option to wear the elastic strap around the ankle for more support or tuck it in to make them slide-ons.

This chic slipper has a sheepskin lining that's soft and fuzzy, and it has a thick, no-slip platform sole that is sturdy but has some give, making it very comfortable to wear. It kept feet warm without overheating, thanks to the sweat-wicking sheepskin and open toe. However, the Fluff Years may not be ideal on extremely cold days on account of the open toe. They fit roomy enough to wear with socks if needed, so if you’re looking for open-toe slippers, these are our favorite option.

You can grab Fluff Yeah slippers in whole sizes 5 to 12 in five colors.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Comfortable to wear

  • Elastic strap provides extra support

Cons

  • No cleaning instructions

Emu Australia Mayberry

These open-toe cross band slippers were one of the fluffiest pairs we tested. They're made with lots of shearling, making them feel extra plush, and after wearing them for a few hours, our tester's feet were a comfortable temperature. Putting them on and taking them off was easy, and walking around in them was comfortable, as the slippers are lightweight.

These slippers run narrow, so if you have wide feet, you may want to size up. Our tester went up one size myself and found that the slipper fits nicely—snug but not too tight and not overly long. They have a rubber sole, making them work for indoor and outdoor wear, but we found during testing they're prone to slipping on wet floors.

The slippers come in whole sizes 5 to 11 and in 10 colors. Emu Australia recommends sizing up if you’re in between sizes.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Keeps feet warm without overheating

  • Plenty of shearling

Cons

  • Runs narrow

  • Spot clean only

Product image of L.L. Bean Women's Wicked Good Moccasins
L.L. Bean Women's Wicked Good Moccasins

According to L.L. Bean, the retailer sells one pair of the Wicked Good Moccasin slippers every seven seconds during peak season in December, and it’s easy to see why. There is a lot of fur on the inside of these slippers! The shearling wraps around the feet and toes, and remained soft and fluffy during testing. It also kept our tester's feet warm without causing sweat. The fur extends from the inside of the slipper and wraps around the outside of the shoe, so the foot only touches the fur and not the edge of the slipper. The extra fur at the edge of the slipper adds a nice touch to the style but doesn’t make a huge difference in terms of comfort. The outside material of the slipper is extremely soft and the outer rubber sole was flexible, which made it easy to walk in.

Now, the less-great: While these slippers fit our more recent tester's feet pretty well, a previous tester found them on the looser side in her usual size. The slippers also slip slightly when walking on a very wet floor.

Grab the Wicked Good Moccasin in sizes 5 to 11 in medium and wide widths and in six colors.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Keeps feet warm without overheating

  • Plenty of shearling

Cons

  • Runs narrow

  • Spot clean only

Product image of Mahabis Classic
Mahabis Classic

The unisex sizing on Mahabis Classic Slippers offers a lot of customization for men and women. (In fact, our style editor loved them so much he named them the Best Upgrade pick when he tested men's slippers.) They have a unique design and are very warm with their quality felt uppers and warm wool lining. The Mahabis give a good grip on the heel and are relatively easy to take on and off, with a sturdy backing. They kept our tester's feet warm during testing without overheating and gripped wet floors well.

However, as someone with wide feet, our tester felt these slippers simply weren’t comfortable for her long-term use. Although they stretched, the sides of her feet ached after wearing them for a few hours and she had to take breaks. Because of their unisex sizing, they also run long in the toe box, so you may want to size down so they’ll fit your feet. Also, furry pet owners, beware: The fuzzy material attracts quite a bit of pet hair, to the point you’ll have to lint roll them often.

Grab the Mahabis Classic Slippers in unisex sizing that fits a women’s 4 to 12.5, in six color options for uppers and three for outsoles.

Pros

  • Soft 100% wool lining

  • Collapsible back

  • Unique look

Cons

  • Hand-wash only

Product image of Acorn Women's Original Moccasins
Acorn Women's Original Moccasins

The Acorns were the slippers that our current tester enjoyed the most during testing, as they fit her wide feet well. They’re machine-washable, which is convenient, as they gathered some foot odor during testing. The sherpa fabric and AVA memory foam bottom are cozy and comfy. They also have a good grip on wet floors and are a cute style for winter months.

But despite a great fit and machine washability, our tester's feet overheated—even though the company claims that its microfiber fleece repels moisture. They also wear in quickly, the sherpa pills, and the suede lining gets dirty easily, and they easily collect dust and pet hair. When we washed them, their suede bottoms cleaned right up, but if you’re considering a pair, expect to wash them frequently.

These come in S to 2XL, which fit women’s sizes 5 to 12, and in five colors.

Pros

  • Good for wide feet

  • Cute design

Cons

  • Get dirty easily

  • Attract lint

Product image of L.L. Bean Women's Daybreak Scuffs
L.L. Bean Women's Daybreak Scuffs

L.L. Bean;s Daybreak Scuffs are adorable as a gift, coming in a variety of colorful styles, accented with designs featuring the likes of grasshoppers, cats, and more—the ones we tested had a moose on them. Their wool construction and lighter fleece lining are warm enough for cooler months, and although they’re a bit tight at first, they stretch out quickly with regular wear and are very grippy even on wet floors, and easy to slide on and off.

However, we found that the wool fabric began to fray after just a few wears and they easily accumulated pet hair around the house. They also run a little short length-wise, and with socks on, they’ll likely overheat your feet. If these aren't dealbreakers, you can do worse for a cute present.

Grab the Daybreak Scuffs in whole sizes 6 to 11 and in 15 colors.

Pros

  • Variety of designs

  • Warm

Cons

  • Pill easily

  • Tighter fit

Product image of Jessica Simpson Women's Comfy Faux Fur House Slipper
Jessica Simpson Women's Comfy Faux Fur House Slipper

This memory foam pair from Jessica Simpson has fluffy multi-color faux fur on the inside that wraps around the and gives it a trendy pop look. The faux fur feels silky, and the pair’s memory foam footbed provides plenty of cushioning.

But while the fur is soft, it feels slightly slick instead of plush, and our tester wished there was more of it to help warm her toes on a cold day. Conversely, the slippers aren't very breathable and doesn’t wick away moisture well, which made her feet feel clammy after wearing them for a few hours. The memory foam footbeds also squish down while standing on them, making the slipper feel flat. These are one of the lower-priced slippers, so it is a case of you getting what you pay for. These are best suited for a single-season purchase rather than a long-term investment. But for what it’s worth, they’re one of the few pairs on this list that are machine-washable.

Jessica Simpson Faux Fur Slippers come in sizes S to XL, fitting shoe sizes 6 to 10, in 11 colors.

Pros

  • Stylish

  • Soft faux fur

  • Machine washable

Cons

  • Faux fur makes feet feel sweaty

  • Not enough faux fur

  • Memory foam falls flat

Product image of Ultraideas Women's Memory Foam Slippers
Ultraideas Women's Memory Foam Slippers

These slippers are very popular on Amazon and don’t fall short on comfort, as feet sink into their memory foam insoles. They keep temps comfortable without overheating, and their rubber bottoms grips wet floors well. They also have a price that makes them almost too good to pass up. The Ultra Ideas are lightweight and could work for a variety of climates and seasons, plus the company claims they can be worn indoors and outdoors, and can also be thrown in the washing machine.

But, unfortunately, we found some faults. The plush lining feels low quality and easily gets grimy, though that can be remedied with a machine-wash. The knit upper feels cheap and started pilling after just a few washes, and they run a bit too wide—our tester's feet slipped around as she wore them. While the Ultraideas is a decent slipper for their price, they fall short on longevity.

Ultra Ideas come in sizes 5 to 12 in black, gray, navy, purple, and red.

Pros

  • Cushy on your feet

  • Wide fit

Cons

  • Pill easily

  • Cheap construction

Product image of Lands' End Women's Suede Leather Moccasin Slippers
Lands' End Women's Suede Leather Moccasin Slippers

Although they’re stylish, decently constructed, and made of soft suede with faux fur lining, these slippers from Lands' End did not make a fan of our tester. They’re made for narrow feet and were so painful for her to wear, she wanted to take them off immediately—which was also a problem, because they were extremely hard to slide on and off during testing. They lack arch support and offer less traction than other brands we tested.

These might be a good choice if you have narrow feet and are looking for a slipper that won’t slide around—they did fine on the wet-floor test—but if you’re looking for something to easily slide your foot into, avoid this pair.

The Lands' End slippers come in sizes 6 to 12 in navy, black, tan, pink, and red.

Pros

  • Made of nice materials

Cons

  • Narrow fit

  • Uncomfortable

Product image of Isotoner Women’s Terry Clog Slippers
Isotoner Women’s Terry Clog Slippers

These Isotoner clogs have a sturdy bottom and heel, soft terry cloth fabric, and offer plenty of support with memory foam insoles. They are also machine-washable, so cleaning them is simple and convenient. But they simply weren’t a good match for our tester's wide feet. In fact, she could barely get her feet into them, and they ran so tight she couldn’t wear them comfortably for long periods. They also didn't win any style points with her. If you decide to give them a try, size up if you have wide feet..

The Isotoner clogs come in women’s sizes 5.5 to 10, in periwinkle, gray, and white.

Pros

  • Good arch support

Cons

  • Run small

  • Unattractive design
