Ready or not, the holiday season is just around the corner and it’s time to start gathering ideas for the tough-to-buy-for men in your life. With winter just around the corner, and the COVID-19 pandemic still keeping folks indoors, comfort is definitely the way to go when it comes to gift giving — or even treating yourself.
The days of cold feet and misshapen slippers are over. There’s a pair of anti-slip, memory foam indoor shoes taking over Amazon by storm — and they’re under $35.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $32
What are they?
The HomeIdeas Anti-Slip House Slippers are Amazon’s latest must-have house shoe that not only provide four layers of memory foam and sponge comfort, but also anti-slip grip to protect you from slipping on spills or slick hardwood floors. The simple design, made of woolen fabric that comes in four different colours, helps feet stay dry and odourless all day, so you don’t have to worry about emitting any funky smells when it’s time to take them off for the night.
Better yet, the waterproof sole won’t leave scratch marks on wood or tile and comes with noise-reducing qualities perfect for the late-night snacker who doesn’t want to wake up their family.
At the end of the day, HomeIdeas is so confident in their product that they offer a 100% money back guarantee, if all of those qualities aren’t enough to win you over.
Why shoppers love them
With an average 4.2-star rating on more than 3,100 reviews, it’s plain to see why these slippers made the Amazon’s Choice roster. According to the reviews, they’re bound to make for “happy feet.”
“Bought these for my dad as a Father’s Day gift,” one shopper wrote. “He said he gives them a 5/5 and he’s a very picky person.”
Another happy shopper wrote he loves that he “can go outside for garbage without having to put shoes on,” adding that they seemed a bit small but stretched out for a perfect fit after a few days.
These house shoes were perfect for one shopper who found himself unable to put on socks after hip surgery. “These slippers keep my feet warm at a great price,” he wrote.
However, it’s not all positive reviews for these slippers.
Many reviewers mentioned that the memory foam padding is too thin, with one shopper commenting: “The memory foam padding is barely padding. There is nothing there. You feel the sole of the shoes.”
One shopper purchased these to help with balance, but noted that they don’t hold up for those wanting to wearing them all day, every day. “They didn’t seem to hold up long before the memory foam turned into a flat pad,” they wrote.
Some complained that the sizing was way off, with a number of shoppers claiming they had to size up one or two full sizes to get the right fit.
“I returned these to get a larger size and even the larger size was too small,” a shopper wrote. “The quality really isn’t that great either.”
While some shoppers were let down by the thin memory foam padding and some major sizing confusion, the house slippers boast more than 70% positive reviews calling them comfortable and Dad-approved. If shopper consider the suggestion of sizing up and perhaps rotating between a couple pairs to avoid wear-and-tear, these could be the stocking stuffer your dad, husband or grandfather were hoping for.
