Tips to remember when choosing slippers

Slippers are a very important shoe for our daily life. After a long day at work, many times wearing uncomfortable shoes that don’t let the feet breathe, we arrive home and we leave the work shoes out and we change into the slippers, a key moment for our feet because now they can rest, breathe and recover so the next day they will be at their best and ready for another hard working activity.

It seems then that slippers are very important, and they are indeed, they are much more than a comfortable shoe we were at home, it’s very much connected with health, so the moment of choosing a good pair of slippers it’s not and should not be something we do without really paying attention. So that’s why, we think it’s convenient to give some tips to remember when the moment of buying a pair slippers arrives.

Most important tips

The size

Sometimes we just look for a pair of slippers of the same size as our usual shoe size, but we have to try them and check if the feet have enough space, never too tight or forcing them into an uncomfortable and even painful position. That’s why sometimes it might be a good idea to buy a higher size than your average shoe size.


One can find many materials on the market nowadays. We must look at which kinds of materials are good for the feet, which ones help them to recover, which ones are most comfortable… In the end many aspects. Often people go for softer material slippers, but remember, it has to feel soft and comfortable for the feet, but they have to be strong enough not to break easily.


Very much connected to the materials, as we said you want something that it’s going to last for a long time and that you can carry with you if you go out on a trip. Handmade slippers last longer in most of the cases.

Floor of the house

The harder the floor of your house is, the thicker the sole of the slippers should be, while the ones whose houses have many carpets the sole it’s not such a priority.

After taking these basic tips into consideration, more questions might raise in your head. Of course one can think of other issues like the price, the color or the design among others, but the most important think in the end is to try them, and see how you feel using them, and how your feet feel after, if they have a feeling of recovery or not. That’s why sometimes the price is not such an important thing; the most important thing is the comfort of your feet.

You got me when you talked about the importance of trying slippers before buying them to make sure that your feet won’t be in an uncomfortable position. My daughter and I are planning to shop for a pair of casual footwear that we can wear on our date nights. We walk a lot when we’re together, so the last thing that we want to happen is to have calluses. Thanks for sharing this.
