TODO alt text

Slippers may not be something many men consider buying. However, when winter rolls around, wouldn’t you much rather keep your feet toasty in something stylish than nick your partner’s pink and fluffy pair of socks? (Which I’m sure they wouldn’t be happy about either). 

Luckily for you, we've collected the best slippers around, from traditional looking moccasins to classic slip-ons.

How to choose the best slippers

Although they keep you very warm, not all slippers have to be giant fluffy things that make you look like some sort of yeti (unless you want novelty, of course). In fact, some of the best men’s slippers look extremely smart and come in a range of materials including suede, leather and sheepskin. Styles include moccasins, slip-ons and boots if you do want to go for ultimate comfort over style. 

Slippers are much comfier, warmer and safer to be wearing around the house than just wandering around barefoot or in socks, and since they’re just for lounging at home, no one has to see you if you do fancy yourself a pair of fluffy unicorn slippers! 

We’ve picked out some of the best men’s slippers on the market right now that cater to all styles and budgets. 

Take your pick and make sure they’re on your Christmas list this year.
