The best slippers for women 2020
No one likes having cold feet. Keep yours cosy all winter (and beyond) in a pair of Mumsnetter-approved slippers
1. Next Suede Slipper Boots, £28
Mumsnetters love these affordable UGG-style slipper boots. The lining is faux fur, rather than real sheepskin, but the uppers on these boots are made from real suede and they have a proper sole on them too – easily sturdy enough for putting the bins out. Available in four different colours, they’d make an excellent present (or treat for yourself).
“Another vote for the Next suede slippers – I got the boot style for Christmas and they're so toasty. I suffer from chilblains and these are fur-lined and have a good strong sole.”Buy now
2. Celtic & Co House Boots, £145
For true luxury – and quality – opt for these Celtic & Co House Boots. Handcrafted in Cornwall with 100% British sheepskin, these slippers also benefit from double-stitched seams and heel protectors to help them last – they’re even machine washable in case of any spills. They’re suitable for indoor and outdoor wear and you can choose between a knee- or calf-high style.
“My House Boots are good as new five years on. They're well worth the investment, and they are machine-washable.”
“Another vote for Celtic & Co. I have the sheepskin boots and wear them constantly. They're on their fourth winter and going strong despite having been vomited on multiple times by two vomity babies and consequently machine washed quite a few times.”
“My Celtic & Co sheepskin slippers lasted four years.”Buy now
3. Moshulu Mules, from £24
Moshulu have legions of fans on Mumsnet – and it’s not hard to see why. Their slippers are colourful, cosy, durable and made in the UK. With super lightweight soles and underfoot cushioning, the Malia slippers are perfect for putting your feet up and, if that’s wishful thinking, ideal for racing around after toddlers too. Moshulu slippers are available in ballet pump, loafer and bootie styles too, but Mumsnetters like the mules best of all.

Made from water-resistant suede with a breathable, natural sheepskin lining to ensure optimum cosiness – without sweatiness – these slippers are a treat for your feet.
“Ugg slippers. Just like a cuddle for my feet! I luffs them.”
“Ugg slippers for me every time – they are expensive initially but have far outlived any other slippers I've ever had.”

5. Fitflop slippers, from £27
If your feet need a little more support, boot-style slippers might not be the right choice for you. These Fitflop mules have impact pillows at the heel and ball of your foot and an ergonomically-designed sole to ensure that your foot is comfortable and cushioned, as well as arch support to prevent your foot from collapsing and affecting your posture.

6. The North Face Slippers, from £32.49
Somewhat misleadingly names “low rise hiking boots,” these North Face slippers probably aren't up to the task of fell-walking but they're plenty sturdy enough for day-to-day wear around the house. With 100% recycled and water-resistant uppers and a rugged sole
“I bought my mum a pair of North Face fleece lined slippers and she loves them. They aren't the prettiest to look at in my opinion, but she says they are the best thing she's ever put on her feet.”
“I bought men's North Face ones in the sale at the beginning of the year as they sold out of my size in the women's. Awesome slippers, warm, comfy and so hard wearing.”Buy now
Homey's, from £29.99
If you can see past the rather trite descriptions on their website (though we understand if you can't), these slippers are a cosy, hard-wearing option with legions of fans on Mumsnet. Even (self-proclaimed) slipper connoisseurs praise them for their durable outer sole and comfortable, memory foam insole. Plus, they're machine washable.
“I am a slipper fiend and these are the best and longest lasting I've ever experienced”
“I got some after seeing them recommended on MN and they're fab. They have a hard sole for popping outside and a nice fluffy lining to keep your feet warm but not overheated.”
“Homeys. The have a decent sole, are fluffy on the inside and survive a wash well.”Buy now
Just Sheepskin slippers, from £44
Yet another sheepksin slipper recommendation. Just Sheepskin offer 18 different styles in all sorts of different neutral – and not so neutral – shades.

Just Sheepskin recommend you wear their slippers with bare feet in order to enjoy the full, temperature-regulating benefits of natural sheepskin.
