1. Best overall slippers: Moshulu Bo Bootie Slippers

Moshulu Bo Bootie Slippers

Price on writing: £29.25 | Buy now from Moshulu

Key specs

Material: Felt | Colours available: Indigo, violet, denim, shadow, slate, lagoon | Sizes available: UK 3 to 8

What Mumsnet users say

“I’ve had two pairs of Moshulu Bo Booties and they were superb for inside and for brief forays to the drive.” (Vetted by Mumsnet user DotBall)

“They have a good solid base so they're great for nipping to the bin or just not being floppy. They are made with wool so don't get sweaty and aren't slippy. There’s a choice of mule, slipper or boot. Last really well – mine are ancient now and still going strong, I wash them in the machine.” (Reviewed by Mumsnet user CleopatrasBeautifulNose)

Our verdict

Moshulu slippers have been a firm favourite in the Mumsnet community for a few years now, and it’s easy to see why. The spotty designs are cute and fun, and the fluffy lining means they’re incredibly warm for the winter months.

They’re super easy to pull on and off, thanks to the slip-on boot shape, but stay firmly on your feet while you're wearing them. Mumsnet users also love the fact that they have a hard sole that means you can leave them on if you have to pop out into the garden or to take the rubbish out.

2. Best budget slippers: M&S Embroidered Slippers with Secret Support

Marks and Spencer Embroidered Slippers

Price on writing: £12.50 | Buy now from M&S

Key specs

Material: Faux fur | Colours available: Pink, navy | Sizes available: UK 3 to 8

Our verdict

These mules from Marks and Spencer’s collection of easy-to-wear staples are perfect for slipping on at the end of a long day. Or any time of the day.

They’re lovely and warm thanks to the soft faux fur lining and have a moulded outsole that supports the arch of your foot. Reviewers were thrilled with the softness and comfort they gave, but a few did report that the material inside made them prone to sliding off occasionally. That aside, overall we think these are a great inexpensive pair of slippers.

3. Best sheepskin slippers: UGG Scuffette Sheepskin and Suede Slippers

UGG Scuffette Sheepskin and Suede Slippers

Price on writing: £85 | Buy now from John Lewis

Key specs

Material: Sheepskin, cow suede, rubber | Colours available: Chestnut, black, thundercloud, beechwood, ash fog, espresso | Sizes available: UK 3- 8

What Mumsnet users say

“I invested in my first pair of UGG slippers two years ago. I have worn them constantly this last year and they are still going strong. The Scuffette slip-on ones are brilliant. I have just bought another pair. Brilliant value as I would have got through several £10 pairs in that time. Go for it, you won’t regret it.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user WowIlikereallyhateyou)

Our verdict

If you’ve ever owned a pair of UGG boots, you’ll know how comfy and cosy they are, and these Scuffette slippers take that comfort to the next level. The mule style makes them easy to slide on and off, and UGG’s signature sheepskin lining keeps your feet snug and warm.

Mumsnet users love that these slippers keep your feet toasty without getting sweaty and that they stay in great condition for years. They may be pricey initially, but their durability makes them good value on a cost-per-wear basis.

4. Best slippers for coverage: Haflinger Unisex Emils Choice Booty Mule

HAFLINGER Unisex's Emils Choice Booty Mule

Price on writing: From £47.22 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Material: Wool felt, leather sole | Colours available: Anthrazit, mittelblau, asphalt, rubin | Sizes available: UK 3.5 - 11

What Mumsnet users say

“I got some Haflinger booties in lockdown. Costly but lovely and I spend most of my time in them!” (Vetted by Mumsnet user Dogtooth)

Our verdict

These cute bootie slippers from Haflinger are made with pure wool felt which, like the UGG slippers above, keeps your feet lovely and warm without getting sweaty. If you’re working from home all day, these will also keep you cosy thanks to the higher sides around the ankle. 

They have a soft leather sole that makes them perfect for curling up on the sofa in the evenings. Given a lot of women’s slippers only go up to a size 8, we love that these unisex slippers go up to a size 11 too.

5. Best outdoor slippers: Sketchers Women's Keepsakes-Ice Angel Slipper

Sketchers Keepsakes-Ice Angel Slipper

Price on writing: From £25 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Material: Synthetic | Colours available: Chocolate, black, charcoal, natural, slate | Sizes available: UK 2 - 8

What Mumsnet users say

“[I wear] Sketchers Women's Keepsakes-Ice Angel Slipper. Sturdy sole, memory foam, furry. I live in mine.” (Tried and tested by Mumsnet user ohidoliketobe)

Our verdict

If you’re looking for a good hard-soled slipper that you can wear around the house without worrying about slipping and keep on for popping outside, then these Sketchers will be right up your street. The rubber soles are nice and thick, and the back is just high enough for the slippers to feel properly secure on your feet.

The inside is super warm and fluffy and the memory foam insoles mean they’ll mould to your feet over time to be incredibly comfortable. These do run a bit big, so it might be worth ordering a size smaller than you normally would to get the perfect fit.

6. Best high-end slippers: Celtic & Co Handmade Sheepskin Bootee Slippers

Celtic and Co Handmade Slippers

Price on writing: £79 | Buy now from John Lewis

Key specs

Material: Wool and rubber | Colours available: Blue iris, dark grey, dusky pink, light grey, merlot, moorland, oatmeal, spice, vole | Sizes available: UK 3 - 9 

What Mumsnet users say

“I’ve just bought Celtic & Co boot slippers as well. They are beautiful and keep my feet warm. True sizing and a lovely choice of colours. No plastic packaging either.” (Recommended by Mumsnet user Strongarmy)

“Another vote for Celtic & Co house boots. If mine gave up today, I would re-buy the same ones immediately. Very comfy and incredibly warm.” (Reviewed by Mumsnet user eurochick)

Our verdict

Celtic & Co slippers come highly recommended on the Mumsnet forums, with users saying they’re well worth the higher price tag. They’re wonderfully warm thanks to the cosy sheepskin and can be worn with the cuff rolled down or left up.

Celtic & Co have been making these slippers for over 30 years and their attention to detail and quality is amazing. They really do know their stuff when it comes to working with the natural sheepskin – they recommend that you buy these slippers in your normal size and give them an hour or two for the wool to bed down if they feel a little snug when you first put them on.

7. Best slipper socks: Hotelvs Slipper Socks

Hotelvs slipper socks

Price on writing: £9.99 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Material: Polyester and elastane | Colours available: White, brown | Sizes available: One size fits all

Our verdict

Slipper socks are a great alternative for when you want toasty, warm feet without the bulk of slippers. This pair has got a classic wintery design with pine trees and reindeer which is perfect for the colder months.

They’re lined with cuddly fleece to keep your feet cosy and have silicone rubber grips on the soles so you don’t slide around all over the place in them. We think they'd make a fantastic stocking filler too.

8. Best comfy slippers: EverFoams Women's Micro Suede Fuzzy Plush Lined Slippers

EverFoams Micro Suede Fuzzy Plush Lined Slippers

Price on writing: From £25.99 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Material: Synthetic faux shearling  | Colours available: Black, grey, pink, red, tan, taupe | Sizes available: 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10

Our verdict

These slippers are so soft you might never want to take them off. And with the sturdy and durable sole meaning you can wear these both indoors and outdoors, you might never need to!

They have a low back so they’re easy to slide your feet into but won’t come flying off as you walk around. The lining is incredibly soft and fluffy and the memory foam insole gives them that ‘walking on a cloud’ experience.

9. Best slip-on slippers: Next Suede Mule Slippers

Next Suede Mule Slippers

Price on writing: £22 | Buy now from Next

Key specs

Material: Leather and textile | Colours available: Animal grey, beige, bright green, chestnut brown, grey, hot pink, mink pink, mink pink sparkle moon and stars, navy, neutral zebra, pale grey, pink rose, purple | Sizes available: Small (3-4), medium (5-6), large (7-8), extra large (9)

What Mumsnet users say

“These are so cosy and warm and feel way more expensive than they are. They don't have a back though.” (Reviewed by Mumsnet user MoggyMittens23)

Our verdict

Like the look of the UGG slippers, but not such a big fan of the price tag? These mule slippers from Next make a great alternative.

Mumsnet users really rate Next slippers in general for being great quality for the price, and these ones in particular have been recommended for being lovely and warm. The faux fur lining is beautifully fluffy and soft, and the sole is durable and supportive.

10. Best slipper boots: Sheepland Sheepskin Boot Slippers

Sheepland Luxury Sheepskin Indoor Slipper Boots

Price on writing: £64.49 | Buy now from Sheepland

Key specs

Material: Sheepskin | Colours available: Chestnut, dark brown, stone | Sizes available: UK 4 - 12

What Mumsnet users say 

“Sheepland Sheepskin Boots. I’ve had mine for five or six years now and they are still in great condition. I’ve got soft sole ones.” (Rated by Mumsnet user cannaethink)

Our verdict

These sheepskin boots are the ultimate slipper boots to keep you cosy all day. They’re designed with a simple sheepskin sole so they’re not suitable for wearing outside, but that does make them perfect for snuggling up on the sofa.

We love that you can fold the top of these boots down to create a different look with the soft sheepskin lining on display, or leave them up to stay incredibly warm on chilly days.

What type of slipper should I get?

There are a few different styles of slippers to choose from, and which one you pick depends on what you’re looking for in terms of warmth, comfort, and looks.

Boots

If you want something to really keep your toes toasty then boot-style slippers are the ones to go for. The extra height covering your ankles really makes a difference in how warm they keep you.

Mules

Mule-style slippers are not as cosy as boot-style slippers as they don't come as high up – this can make them the ideal style if you tend to run hot. They're also backless so they’re really easy to pop on, but this might make certain pairs prone to slipping off. 

Sliders

These slippers look like a fluffy version of summer sandals and are great for comfort, but won’t keep your feet all that warm when temperatures plummet.

Pumps

These ballet-shoe style slippers are a great middle ground between mules and boots in terms of how warm they are. They’re normally soft, fluffy and perfect for curling up on the sofa.

Slipper socks

If you don’t want to put on a proper pair of slippers but still want to be lovely and warm, slipper socks are a great option. They’re thick and cosy and have a grippy sole that stops you sliding around at home.

What kind of material is best for slippers?

For slippers that are super warm but still breathable (so your feet don’t get too hot and sweaty) you want to look for wool, felted wool, or sheepskin as the main material.

It’s also worth looking out for a slipper with a memory foam insole for extra softness and support, and a rubber sole is also great if you want to be able to wear your slippers outside.

Can slippers be worn outdoors?

If you go for a slipper with a durable, rubber sole then you can wear them outdoors. Just keep in mind that slippers are designed to be mostly worn indoors, so while it’s fine to keep them on to pop into the garden or to take the bins out, you should really put proper shoes on before you head out further than the garden gate.

What are the best women’s slippers to buy?

It feels like we’d be doing the Mumsnet forum users a disservice if we didn't pick Moshulu slippers as the best women's slippers to buy. This brand is super popular and it's easy to see why – the slippers are affordable, comfortable and they have a hard sole so they should last you a while. 

What are the best women’s slippers for arch support?

Our choice for the best budget slippers are also the ones that offer the best arch support, making the M&S secret support slippers great for anyone who needs a bit more structure in their slippers.

How we chose our recommendations

We spent several hours sifting through Mumsnet's forums for recommendations from our users on the slippers they rated most highly. We were also on the lookout for poor reviews of products to avoid.

We then consulted recommendations from experts, consumer websites and print media and made sure we included brands that regularly appeared in top 10 lists.

We also looked at authentic reviews for each of our longlisted slippers to check that previous customers were satisfied with their purchases.

By doing this, we whittled our longlist down and chose a top list that we think offers something for everybody.
