This year’s Top 10 Slippers That Make You Go “OO-ER”
I know you want to know the Top 10 Slippers this year. I know *I* do. Because I love it when someone else has just done the work for you; like car insurance comparison websites. I just want to look at the best options on the market, have a little mooch and pick something with as little stress in the least time-consuming way as possible. Well, I’ve been oh so VERY helpful and done this for you – but with something a little more important that car insurance… Yes, that’s right ladies… Slippers.
Honestly? THE most underrated footwear out there.
The soft fluffy lining, the cushioned instep, the fur trim… Oh sorry, I’m getting all flustered and carried away now!
Anyway, slip (see what I did there?) into something cosy this season and check out my top 10 pairs of slippers you can buy from the high-street that won’t break the bank.
1 – Lands’ End – Grey cute clog slippers – WAS £45.00 – NOW £31.50
I’m starting off with something quirky and cute… look at these baa-d boys! (Sorry.) With felt uppers, berber fleece lining and a durable sole perfect for doing the bin run in in the evenings and not having to change into something less flimsy. ‘Cos let’s be honest, popping out in your slippers and getting holes in the soles from doing so is probably the main reason you’re looking for new slippers, right?

2 – John Lewis & Partners Microsuede Faux Fur Fold Down Boot Slippers – £28
I don’t think your feet could ever get cold in these soft fold-down boot slippers. These come in a fuzzy pink colour too if you’d rather. With a gloriously soft bottom (oo-er), these little booties will snuggle ‘round your tootsies and are perfect for tucking your pj bottoms into. Keep those draughts at bay!

3 – Pombury Ballet Style Slippers – £20 reduced to £14!!
With an array of colour choices for these fleece lined ballet style slippers, they make pottering around your home more fun than ever. Not to mention the fluffy pom-poms being an adorable added bonus to these already cute and cosy elasticated slippers! These aren’t like pop-socks (Thank God, how annoying are bloody pop socks!) as they have a textured sole for extra grip which also means no risk of slip-sliding around your kitchen!

4 – Lindex velvet bow mule slippers – £15
So, these slippers aren’t as cosy-looking as a few of the others I’ve picked out but these don’t really look like slippers either which is part of their unusual appeal. This brand use recycled fabrics so are ideal for those who are conscious of their carbon footprint! The easy slip-on style and bow detailing takes your average convenient slipper and combines it with style creating the ultimate velvet mule worn by one smooth-operator.

5 – Ugg Scuffette £80
I know, it’s a slightly dull obvious one – but it’s the top selling slipper on John Lewis for a reason. Just snuggle your feet into the depths of that sheepskin (*whipsers* and know that because it’s genuine shearling there’ll be no stinky aromas that always come from hot-feet-by-the-fire in the synthetic faux fur kind). Here’s a secret – I love these particular slippers so much that in previous years, when they weren’t available in the UK, and only from Australia, I paid to have them shipped here. Oh yes I did. Thank goodness they saw the light and started selling them this side of the sea! At £80 a pop, they aren’t cheap but the lasting quality means they’ll see you through more than a few months of one winter – they’re delicious enough to sway even the most stubborn of people into this investment…

6 – Velvet Mule Slippers – £35
“Santa Baby, stick these slippers onto my feet for me, been an awful good girl, Santa Baby, only 35 quid’s alright?! Hurry! Please buy!” … Okay so I never claimed to be a lyricist but the redness reminded me that the X-mas season is almost upon us, hence my musical tangent. The faux fur inner lining is super cosy and has a cool polka dotted sole to match the outer material, which is a fab touch! These would look so cute teamed with some festive pyjamas on a lovely lady snuggled up next to the fire on a chilly winter’s eve!
Red Velvet Mules from Boden – £35
7 – UGG Fluff Yeah Slide Slippers – £100
Curve ball… These have a branded elasticated sling-back heel and is a peep-toe fluffy flatform slipper. Real sheepskin and 100% real leather uppers. This is all UGG’s usual quality but far from your usual slipper. I have featured these just because I didn’t realise slippers like this existed so wanted to broaden horizons! The thicker sole means these are indoor or outdoor wear too. I’m oddly drawn to them and want a pair… What do you think?!
Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide Slippers – £110 ASOS
8 – Homestead Slipper Sock – £23 reduced to £16!
These super-duper soft fleece outer and inner lined slipper socks will keep your feet lovely and toasty as the colder seasons approach! These are really easy to transport if you have any winter holidays coming up as they are so lightweight whilst also maintaining a textured grippy sole. A lot of slipper socks don’t have a proper sole so these are trumping their slipper sock competitors with this added feature! Speaking of the sole, how cute is the “shhh! I’m relaxing” writing on the bottom of these booties? With three different patterns to choose from and only £16? These are a comfort closet must-have!

9 – Ladies Addington Knit Sheepskin Slippers – £60.00
Colder seasons are all about knitwear and fluffy stuff so why not treat yourself by combining the two? Boasting lush sheepskin inners and a durable slip-resistant sole, practicality just met luxury and had a wonderful fuzzy baby known as the Addington sheepskin slipper… A.K.A a winter necessity. Oh, did I mention the sole was gel memory foam too? I know. It just keeps getting better. This slipper comes in four different colours, one for each week of December perhaps…?
And for the last few years my cold toes have been encased in JustSheepskin slippers. Fabulous quality, the thickest sheepskin slipper liners my toes have ever experienced – they’re just a joy to wear.
Addington Knit Mules from Just Sheepskin – £60
10 – Totes Grey Terry Ballet Slippers – Was £16, now just £8!
Simple, yet effective! Keeps your feet warm whilst also being totally non-offensive to look at. With a terry towelling finish, they’re ideal for slipping on after a shower and settling down to watch your favourite naff program with a cup-a-cocoa in front of the fire… or a radiator if you’re fire-less like me. There is a soft foam insole for complete comfort but don’t wear these outside as the bottoms are so soft, they’ll just wear away. However, at £8 a pop, can you really complain?
