The Best Men’s Slippers for Self-Care and Stunting at Home

The Best Men’s Slippers for Self-Care and Stunting at Home

As with all footwear, there’s a slipper to suit every style. You can go traditional and visit one of Northampton’s historic shoemakers, where velvet slippers are crafted from the same lasts as exemplary Oxford shoes, sat on hard leather soles with quilted satin linings. At Crockett & Jones, you can even opt for a bespoke appointment, customising the colour, material and embroidery. "Handmade by a specialist in England, our slippers undergo the exacting eye that our Goodyear welted footwear does," says brand director James Fox. Which means they're tough. Very much so.

But if you’re searching for something a little more contemporary, look to the collabs. Utilitarian specialists Suicoke have teamed up with South Korean marque This is Never That on a range of handmade slippers that feel just as comfy as they look. Likewise, Ugg has added to its extensive range of sheepskin slippers with a style created with Telfar. Brands like Marni and JW Anderson are here to satisfy the avant-garde dressers with their conspicuous offerings, whereas anyone hoping to float through life like a Florentine prince can opt for a Gucci slipper, or one from Tom Ford.

Clearly, there’s a lot to think about. And a lot to browse. But we’re in the business of saving you time – hence, we present you with our edit of the best men’s slippers for 2023.

(JW Anderson/Telfar)
1) Tom Ford


There’s nothing Tom Ford can’t sex up, a slipper included. This one seduces with black velvet, gold hardware and a tassel detail at the vamp.

2) Crockett & Jones


Quilted lined slippers from Crockett & Jones that deserve to be worn with a velvet robe (and not much else) as you lounge in a Chesterfield armchair, drinking whiskey on the rocks, staring pensively into a fire.

3) JW Anderson


JW Anderson brings its hallmark bumper detail to some pecan brown leather slippers, transforming a traditional design into something much more present.

4) Harrys of London


Harrys of London gets playful with shearling, forming a fuzzy slipper that’s surprisingly versatile.


5) Duke and Dexter


Duke and Dexter: the brand behind a shearling-lined slipper so comfy, you’ll have a hard time taking it off. Good thing the sole unit is built for indoor and outdoor use.

6) Marni


In the weird and wacky world of Marni, slippers are coated in calf hair for the cosy boys. Sensible shoppers opt for beige or black; free spirits, go for turquoise or blue.


7) Russell and Bromley


A buttery-soft calf leather slipper lined with sheepskin is nothing if not lush. Bravo, Russell and Bromley.

8) Ugg


Ugg has finally infiltrated menswear, meaning it’s now socially acceptable to go galavanting in some uber-comfy Tasman slippers.


9) Telfar x Ugg


Speaking of Ugg, its collaboration with Yoncé-approved Telfar has played a pivotal role in its renaissance, making this the Ugg slipper of the moment.


10) Keen


Portland-based shoemaker Keen takes credit for this all-rounder of a slipper that fuses warm, quilted nylon upper atop a memory foam footbed atop a outdoors-ready rubber sole.


11) This is Never That x Suicoke


An unfussy slipper – designed by South Korean label This is Never That in collaboration with Suicoke – that somehow champions the normcore trend, gorpcore trend and Y2K trend all at once.


12) Arket


Born from the mind of celebrated Scandinavian designer Pia Wallén and available at Arket, this wool shoe may well be the sleekest, most sophisticated slipper on the high street.


13) Gucci


If you’re going to do a Gucci slipper, might as well make it a horsebit-adorned, monogram-covered pair. Right?

14) Birkenstock


The Birkenstock Zermatt is just the right side of grandad, with its folksy felt exterior and trusty cork-latex footbed.


15) Derek Rose


Made in a family-owned factory in Cheshire, this Derek Rose slipper is a product of good ol’ fashion craftsmanship.
