    Re: Fluffy flip-flops, memory foam soles, and dream-like comfort.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. Criss-cross slippers that your feet *need* if you're someone who is perpetually cold. It doesn't hurt that they look ultra fashionable and come in cute colors and patterns for less than their brand-name equivalents, either.,

    Promising review: "These are the best, softest, most luxurious slippers I’ve ever had! The price is so affordable and the pictures definitely do the product justice. They’re fluffy and so cozy. During this stressful pandemic, I wanted a pair of super soft and cozy slippers that help me to just take the stress away. I am so glad that I came across this product. I will be ordering more and gifting them to friends and family!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 5–10.5 and seven colors).

    2. And a pair with additional built-in arch support if you'd prefer some sponge-like cushion — function and fashion never looked ~sole~ good.,

    Promising review: "Love these slippers! The heels of my feet realllllly started hurting the last few weeks. A physical therapist told me it was probably from wearing slippers and shoes without any arch support and walking around barefoot all the time since I work from home now. I had these exact slippers from a different brand with zero arch support and I loved them so was excited to find these with the arch. They are super soft and being honest, I’ve been wearing them two days and my heels barely hurt anymore (it WAS so bad that I could hardly walk). They are a tiny bit smaller than normal size but they still fit and I’ll definitely order more colors." —Alaina B.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available with or without a plush lining; in sizes 5–11 and nine colors).

    3. A year-round ballerina style that some reviewers have been wearing for decades! These feel as light as a feather and will have you dancing around your home winter through summer — we guarantee you won't be able to resist the urge of pirouetting from your couch to the fridge and back again.,

    Promising reviews: "I’ve worn this brand of slipper for decades. I have a pair at my bedside and a pair in my travel bag at all times. I even wear them on a plane on overnight flights for comfort and then slip them back into my travel bag when landing. I absolutely love them. I pray they never stop making them!" —J.Moses

    "These are the most comfy slippers, and I have them in several colors/materials. There's a memory foam footbed that provides just a little cushion, other than that, it's like you're barefoot. They shape nicely to the feet so you forget you're wearing them. The suede soles are pretty water resistant, but definitely not outdoor worthy. They're also easily machine washable, without shrinking or listing shape. I love them!" —Zyreah

    Get them from Amazon for $12.63+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 17 colors).

    4. Delightfully squishy tie-dye mules to make the morning commute from your bed to your WFH spot that little bit comfier.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "These are really comfy and cute. Looking at the reviews I sized up because many said to but now realizing that my feet aren’t the same as men and it made me realize that I didn’t need to size up lol, so if any other ladies are buying go with your original size!"—Customer

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $15 (originally $24; available in sizes XS–L and three colors).

    5. Fuzzy-lined Crocs for anyone who has adopted the aesthetic of full 👏 on 👏 coziness 👏. If you're on the fence about whether to dip your toe into the Croc pool, take the plunge with these because the water (read: lining) is warm as heck.

    Promising review: "Super comfy. Love love love these crocs!! I wear socks with them so the fur lining doesn't get matted. I even wear it in the summer and it's not too hot or sweaty at all! Highly recommend if you're looking for easy slip ons." —Des

    Get them from Amazon for $41.88+ (available in sizes 4–17 and 23 colors).

    6. Fuzzy sling back Uggs that will complete your Zoom uniform and withstand full days spent at your standing desk (thanks to their thicc soles). And if you just look at all the amazing colors these come in, your hardworking toes will be spoilt for choice!

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Psst! Over 5,000 reviewers rave about these shearling slingbacks and some suggest sizing down.

    Promising review: "Super duper comfy. I wear them all over the house. They keep my feet warm. I have a bone spur in my right heel and these slipper cushion my heel very well, no pain. My one negative is when I have to take them off." —iklaz

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and nine colors).

    7. Birkenstock Boston shearling-lined clogs, otherwise known as what your feet considers h-e-a-v-e-n. These are a game-changer for freezing morn's, afternoons, and eve's at home (some reviewers wear these for trips to the outside world, too!). TL;DR: these give you all the comfort of classic Birkenstocks made a little more delicious with the toasty, buttery-soft lining.

    @Birkenstock / Via

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my Birkenstock Bostons, but was looking for a warmer option for fall and winter. The Boston Shearlings did not disappoint! They are warm enough to wear outside, but not so hot that they make my feet sweat when worn inside. They are perfect for fall and winter! Even with the shearling they offer the same personalized support as regular Bostons. I cannot recommend these shoes enough." —Customer

    Get them from Zappos for $165 (available in sizes 5–9.5).

    8. Breathable house shoes composed of cooling cotton and linen paired with a foam density platform. Aka the perfect formula to eliminate days spent doing chores with aching, sweaty feet!

    Reviewer image of the light blue slip-ons

    The shoes are quick-dry, machine-washable, anti-slip, flexible, and have a cushioned sole.

    Promising review: "These are so comfortable. They don't make my feet hot but keep them cozy. The construction is great and the color (I got orange) is beautiful!!!!" —OneGirlsOpinion
    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in unisex sizes 5-13 and six colors).

    9. Quilted slip-on flats with sherpa lining that'll extend the feeling of being snuggled up in bed on a Sunday thanks to their duvet-like materials.


    And this classically chic slipper is also made from recycled materials!

    Promising review: "Working from home has increased my slipper wearing more than ever! I love that these slippers are comfy, but also can be worn when people come over and serve as 'house-shoes' they are comfy and cute!" —Hannahchristine

    Get them from Everlane $50 (available in sizes 5–11 and two colors).

    10. Sanuk flip-flops with the durable, cushiony softness you might find in a yoga mat. No, seriously, these are made from the same foam material found in the equipment you do a downward dog on — so you already know you're gonna feel complete zen the moment these grace your toes.

    two pairs of black flip flops side-by-side labeled "7 year old flip flops and their twin replacements"

    Promising review: "These are my favorite. As a Southern Californian, I wear flip-flops year-round. The last pair of Sanuk yoga mat flip flops I bought lasted through almost three years of constant wear (they were basically the only shoes I wore for three years, so I'm serious when I say constant). They're comfortable enough to wear for a day at Disneyland, even with arthritic joints." —beth

    Get them from Amazon for $22.76+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 11 colors).

    11. Faux fur house slippers because now that you're an adult (yep, you comfort seeker), you're realizing cold wooden floors and bone-chilling tiles are not fun to traipse around on sans footwear. Indoor shoes like these will feel like butter and the moment you slip them on? You might not want to take 'em off.,

    Keep cozy and keep the floors clean with these machine-washable slippers that are designed to give your feet the ultimate plush experience with memory-foam insoles and rubber outer soles.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these slippers! Not only are they super comfortable and super cute, but they are also really durable. I tend to destroy slippers, as I wear them every minute I’m at home and have a bad habit of stepping outside in them, too. The bottoms get all torn up in a fairly short amount of time and I have to throw them away. I’ve had this pair for around two months and they still look brand new which is no small feat for me. They are nearly as thick and sturdy as a regular pair of shoes — more so than some, actually. They’re very supportive and feel wonderful on your feet. Seriously, look no further for a great pair of slippers!" —Jessica K.

    Get them from Amazon for $18.69+ (available in sizes 5-12 and four colors).

    12. Plush animal slippers that are guaranteed to have everyone in your at-home WeWork gushing over. We predict that scurrying around your house to find the best Wi-Fi for your afternoon meetings might be a tad more enjoyable in these.


    Promising review: "The fit was great and they're comfortable and super soft. They look better in person and aren't slippery on tile/hardwood floors. The kids bought these slippers for their dad and he loved them, I'm just not sure the dog did." —Jenn

    Get them from Amazon for $28 (available in six sizes, including for kids, and over 50 animals).

    13. Nonslip massaging slides with lil' comfort bulges that work wonders for your foot's pressure points. An all-day spa experience for your tired toes? Sign us up.


    Promising review: "No rubbing, no chafing, very comfortable. The massage dots are pretty gentle, not as forceful as other massage slides. These don't pinch at all, so far, and my foot doesn't shift around when walking. I would definitely buy again, and my husband liked how they looked and bought a pair himself." —S.K. Wissinger

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 6-10 and four colors).

    14. L.L. Bean moccasins to make your going nowhere days all the more desirable. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say these fluffy home shoes were designed to be elevated upon a footstool (and maybe to accompany you on a midnight snack journey).

    John Mihaly / BuzzFeed, L.L. Bean

    Heads up, if you wear a half-size then you'll want to size up!

    Check out what BuzzFeed writer John Mihaly had to say about his pair: "I've had my mocs for well over five years and they are still kicking. Even though the genuine shearling lamb fur interior is a bit worn down after so much use, they still feel like a super cozy hug every single time I put them on. I even wear them during the summer months now and they're not sweaty at all... It's just that they're so damn comfortable and putting on socks nowadays seems like an effort. So if wearing slippers all day is wrong, I don't want to be right."

    Get them from L.L. Bean in men's sizes for $79 (available in sizes 7-14 and five colors) and women's sizes for $79 (available in sizes 5-11 and two colors).

    Here's the full L.L. Bean Wicked Good Moccasins review.

    15. Open-toe velvet slippers for a royal treatment that your little piggies deserve after a long day. Their bow is adjustable, too, which means a customizable fit for both narrow and wide feet is finally achievable.,

    Promising review: "Love love love these! They’re so cute, comfortable, and made well with solid bottoms. The memory foam is wonderful. This is my third pair and not because they’re worn out but because I love them!" —Carolyn
    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and two colors.)

    16. Soludos slippers that are a little bit quirky with a pinch of sophistication and whole lotta quality 'n' comfort wrapped into one perfect house shoe. We imagine your dogs will NOT be barking enveloped in these.

    The slippers with embroidered details of a blonde and black French bulldog

    Promising review: "I love these slippers! Super comfy and warm. Perfect amount of softness. I mainly bought them because of the Frenchies and being an owner of two Frenchies, but also got the added bonus of comfort!" —Bethany F.

    Get them from Soludos for $75 (available in sizes 5–11 and five styles).

    17. Adjustable open-toe house shoes made of snuggly terry cloth so you can treat your feet like you do your bod once you've just gotten out of the shower — since these mimic the feeling of engulfing yourself in a big fluffy bath towel.


    Promising review: "Most comfortable slipper ever. This slipper was recommended by my podiatrist because I needed arch support for foot pain. I was delighted at not only the arch support but how much cushion the shoe had. Love the adjustable Velcro for when I wear thick socks or go sock-less. Will stay with this brand for all my shoes."—Customer

    Get them from Vionic for $64.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and colors).

    18. Shearling Birkenstock sandals otherwise known as the indoor/outdoor beauties that fashionistas have been donning year after year. If your cozy haven of a home has been filled with fluffy fabrics since the beginning of quarantine, we know which slippies would make the perfect addition.


    Promising review: "These are just amazing. I love the gray color and they are soooooo soft. Not hot — just fluffy and oh so comfy!!! At first I thought it was crazy to spend that much on this kind of sandal... but oh they are really my very very favorite pair of shoes ever. Something good from 2020!!!!" —Midwest Mom and Wife

    Get them from Amazon for $115.76+ (available in sizes 4–11.5 and seven colors).

    19. Textured criss-cross slippers that will have you shuffling to grab your food delivery in style. They're lightweight enough for all seasons and cushiony enough to take you from morning to nighttime trips for grabbing forgotten mail.

    The gold shade clipdot slippers

    Promising review: "I simply love these Clipdot slippers and they are very comfortable and a beautiful color. They have a nice cushion feel on my feet. I can walk outside to the mailbox in them looking stylish!"—Customer

    Get them from Madewell for $39.50 (available in sizes 5–10).

    20. Ugg chukka booties that are both trendy and pillowy-soft, because staying home and feeling toasty is always in style if you ask me. And if you don't believe moi, one reviewer called their look and comfort "to die for!"

    Urban Outfitters

    Oh, and BTW, some say these leave a little room for socks, but sizing half a size down would be too tight.

    Promising review: "The best shoes ever. So comfortable and warm." —Customer

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $130 (available in sizes 6–10 and five colors).

    21. Quilted terry clogs, the style that reviewers with wider feet cannot get enough of. We predict the only clouds making an appearance in your home are the ones you'll feel like you're walking on.

    The blue fluffy slippers with a diamond stitch design

    Promising review: "I have tired, achy feet all the time combined with a high arch. I am a home health nurse and do not prefer to wear shoes in the home so I opt for slippers. These are a dream come true for my feet! Like stepping on a soft, fluffy cloud that has support! Love them!" —Dani

    "These slippers are like walking on a cloud. I wanted a non-slip warm slipper to wear on hardwood floors, and these are perfect. I usually have a hard time finding any kind of footwear wide enough for my feet, but these fit just right." —M. Angela V.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.94+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    22. Acorn spa shoes, because flip-flops but make them fluffy as heck? We'll take one in every colorway, thank you. And they contour to your foot which helps with lower leg and back pain — no wonder reviewers are calling these bbs "perfect."


    Promising review: "These slippers are so comfortable! They are soft and squishy but give support to the arch. I love the color. I also love the Sandal style for the spring and summer as your feet will not get hot! These are very well made. I highly recommend them! I may buy them and other colors." —Nordstrom Customer

    Get them from Nordstrom for $39.95 (available in sizes and colors).

    23. Slip-on booties that are like wearable blankets for your hooves but with the added benefit of an anti-skid rubber sole — making them super suitable for trips to take your doggo out on a quick W-A-L-K.,

    Promising review: "Amazing. Feels like i’m walking on a cloud and can be worn outdoors. I love wearing slippers as shoes and these are perfect and sooooo comfy and cute!" —Luna

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    24. Handmade slipper socks with suede soles that are a little sturdier than the white socks you slide around in, plus they'll look super stylish with your favorite loungeable pants and denim (if you dare).
