Best fashion slippers to gift now
1. Designer Slippers (with a shocking price tag)
The Valentino Garvani Black Roman Stud Sabto Slippers will earn you the all-time best-giver title. The only problem is the price point: $890. Wow, right?
I mean, it’s a stylish slipper — with metallic buckles, pyramid studs and embossed logos on the footbed and all. Your fashionista friend can wear it as a shoe and no one will be the wiser. But then considering the price, she wants to keep her designer slippers under lock and key.
2. Furry UGGs
Moving on to a more practical pick, these slide-style slippers from UGG are comfortable, easy to wear and stylish. They also have a molded rubber outsole, so your recipient can wear them to the mailbox.
Bright aqua colors can add some cheer to cold winter days. If your giftee has a more understated taste, you can also choose black, grey, cream, pink or leopard. The sale price at Zappos is $60.27, down from $89.95
3. Teddy Slide
Anthropologie’s Teddy Slides are top among fashionistas. It must be the shock of the beautiful rose puzzle that sways the legs. Or maybe it’s the uncomfortable slide-on style. These slippers have a rubber sole for ultimate versatility.
You can get teddy slides in brown, cream, or lilac for $40 Sizing is a standard small, medium or large.
4. Kashmiri Simplicity
Your fashionista friend who loves classic style will love this slipper available at Queens. Simple yet polished, they have an Audrey Hepburn feel to them. Importantly, the Queen’s slipper is made of cashmere, one of the world’s most luxurious fabrics.
Your color options are Heather Oatmeal or Heather Grey, and sizes range from XS to L. The slipper is now on sale for $49.90, down from $99
5. One for you, one for me
MinxNY says “Spa days should be everyday.” Hard to argue with that, right? Meet Aromasols, chenille sleeper socks infused with therapeutic oils. Luxurious chenille plus a divine lavender scent that promotes calm and relaxation — that combo makes a memorable gift for yourself or someone else.
And the best part? For $20, you get two pairs of Aromasols sleeper socks and a lavender sachet. Sounds like an excellent opportunity to have a pair for yourself courtesy of your holiday gift budget. Just talking.
6. Sport clogs
DearFoams Sport Foam Clog is an excellent choice for your stylish friend who is always on the move. She will appreciate the simple styling and support this season’s most popular shoe, the clog. This is another style that can double as a shoe, thanks to the thick sole and sleek styling.
Pick up the Sport Clog from Target for $44.99 in moss or pink in shoe sizes 6 to 11.
7. Knit ankle socks
Structured slippers are great for wearing outside, but cozy pajama days require a slipper that hugs the bottom of your feet without being tight. These knitted ankle slipper socks from Eberjey step into that role perfectly. They have nonslip knobs on the bottom for safety.
Available colors include bone (shown here), gray and rose. You can find these at Bloomingdale’s for $46.
Note that this slipper is one-size-fits-all, so it may not be a good choice for your friend who has very large or very small feet.
8. Purple perfection
DearFoams’ smoky purple Rebecca memory foam slippers have an old Hollywood glam vibe. They are simple, but not boring and beautiful, but not feminine. A memory foam footbed offers ultimate comfort, while the thermoplastic elastomer sole stands up to outdoor use.
This slipper is available in a dozen other colors, though not as eye-catching as this purple one. Pick up the style in regular and wide sizes for $21 on Amazon.
9. House shoes
Footwear brand WateLves calls this style a house shoe — meaning it’s a comfortable and practical gift An ergonomically designed sole provides support for tired feet, while a memory foam insole adds softness and flexibility. Fleece lining provides another layer of comfort throughout.
Thousands of Amazon shoppers love this sleeper, rating it 4.5 out of 5. The price is $25.96 and sizes range from 5 to 14.
10. New moccasins
Moccasins are like the LBD of slippers. When in doubt, buy moccasins – especially if you’re giving as a gift. They are classic and always fashionable.
I love this pair because the color gives a new twist to the usually earthy moccasin style. Or maybe I just have a thing for purple.
Pick these up at Zappos for $64.95, down from $99
11. Organic cotton comfort
My final pick for fashionable slippers this year is Quince’s Organic Turkish Cotton Waffle Knit. It is made for simplicity and comfort, period. The slipper is lightweight and absorbent – an ideal accessory for getting in after a shower
You can find the Waffle Knit Slipper at onequince.com for $29.90, marked down from $48.
