It turns out wearing slippers is more important than you think — they'll provide the proper support and warmth you wouldn't be getting in just bare feet. Did you know that keeping your feet warm in the winter can help keep you healthy? In a 2005 study, Dr. Ronald Eccles of Cardiff University reported that cold feet can potentially lead to illness — no thanks! So, if you're on the hunt for a solid pair of slippers this year, Amazon Canada shoppers are raving about the RockDove Men's Original Two-Tone Memory Foam Slipper. These bestselling slippers are currently on sale for 40 per cent off and have earned more than 157,900 shopper reviews.
These slip-on style slippers are made from a "breathable" waffle knit material that'll keep your feet toasty (but not overly warm, preventing sweat and odour from developing). Even if you are prone to a little foot odour, these cozy slippers are machine-washable and safe for use on a cold setting on the gentle cycle — just be sure to avoid the dryer; let them air dry instead.
These "tiny mattresses for your feet" are designed as indoor/outdoor slippers, which make them perfect for slipping on and off to grab those Amazon packages from the porch.
They feature multiple layers of memory foam, including DoveFoam — a trademarked memory foam layer to contour to the foot. DoveFoam also has an additional half-inch heel insert to reduce pressure and slippers a rubber outsole with a "rocky massager" to provide arch support (the company also claims this can help with plantar fasciitis pain).
What people are saying
With more than157,900 Amazon reviews, shoppers called them "extremely comfortable" slippers and "warm to wear" around the house and outside.
One shopper wrote that after wearing their first pair "daily for several years," they were purchasing their second pair.
"It's like walking on a cloud," another said, while others praised the brand for offering larger sizes (size 13-14).
"Gives more cushioning than I expected," someone said of the slippers they wear "every day around the house."
Even though they're marketed as men's slippers, shoppers have said that they "immediately bought" their girlfriend a pair after trying them out for themselves.
While a majority of reviews are glowing, there are some criticisms to keep in mind. Some shoppers have suggested sizing up for a more comfortable fit, while one person noted that they don't offer the most heel support.
If you're looking for an indoor/outdoor slipper that will keep your feet warm, RockDove Men's Original Two-Tone Memory Foam Slipper might be for you. These machine-washable slippers are currently on sale for a whopping 40 per cent off, and if the reviews are any indication, they could be the best treat for your cold little piggies.
However, if you require additional support, you might want to consider something that better suits your needs.
