Best women’s slippers to keep your feet cosy this winter

Want to avoid cold feet this winter? We've rounded up the best women's slippers for cosiness and warmth, as recommended by Mumsnet users.

Selection of the best women's slippers

When the weather is bleak, there's no better feeling than putting on a cosy film, grabbing your hot water bottle, and slipping your feet into a pair of the best slippers for women.

This winter, due to the ongoing high cost of energy bills, many of us are looking for ways to stay warm at home without having the heating on full blast, and things like investing in the best electric blanket and keeping your feet toasty are great places to start. Many of us are now working on a hybrid basis, so the best women's slippers have gone from occasional wear to an everyday winter essential. As a result, many brands have stepped up their designs to make slippers which are not only comfortable and stylish but more durable and environmentally friendly too.

If your old slippers are starting to look a bit sad and you want to replace them with a new pair, you’re in the right place. We’ve collated tried-and-tested recommendations from our discerning Mumsnet users - the UK's largest online network of parents - and scrutinised the opinions of verified reviewers to curate a list of the best slippers for women that you can trust. Whether you’re looking for boots, backless, or budget slippers, we’re here to take all the stress out of finding the perfect pair of slippers for you.

Overall best slippers for women

I’ve had two pairs of Moshulu Bo Booties and they were superb for inside and brief forays to the drive.

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. Last really well – mine are ancient now and still going strong, I wash them in the machine.
See Post

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. With a cute, fun design and a slip-on boot shape that is easy to pull on and off, they're a great option that should last for years of use. The fluffy lining is incredibly warm for colder months, especially if you pair them with the best blanket hoodie. We also love the hard soles, allowing you to leave them on even when you pop out to the bins.


Best budget slippers

EverFoams Micro Suede Plush Lined Slippers, £20

Our verdict

If you’re trying to stick to a budget, these fluffy memory foam slippers from EverFoams make an affordable choice, with a warm and cosy faux-fur interior that's incredibly comforting at the end of a long day.

Easy to slip on and off, with an ankle collar for additional warmth, these durable yet affordable slippers are made with fast rebound memory foam that gently moulds to the shape of your feet. Thanks to the sturdy anti-skid sole, they’re even robust enough to be worn outside briefly.

Best sheepskin slippers

WowIlikereallyhateyou · Tried & Tested
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.

UGG slippers are so warm and hard-wearing. I've had mine about four years, still going strong. Love them.
See Post

Our verdict

If you’ve ever owned a pair of UGG boots, you’ll know just how comfy and cosy they are, but these UGG Scuffette slippers take that comfort to the next level. 

The mule style is easy to slip on and off as required, with UGG’s plush sheepskin lining keeping your feet snug and warm without them getting sweaty. They may be pricey, but their durability means they’ll stay in good condition for years, offering excellent value for money on a cost-per-wear basis. 


Best slider slippers

The White Company Faux-Fur Cross Slider Slippers, £39

You don't have to spend a fortune, but yes, buying decent slippers is worth it... The White Company ones are great.
See Post

Our verdict

The White Company doesn't get much wrong when it comes to stylish loungewear (hence why they feature on both our best dressing gowns for men and women's dressing gown pages), and their open-toe faux fur slippers are no exception. 

Made from recycled materials, these super-soft slippers feel ultra plush on your feet, while also offering great breathability on milder days. Despite being sliders by name, the internal suede patch means they won't be slidey by nature, staying firmly on your feet for complete everyday comfort.

Our verdict

They may have a unique look, but these sustainably-made The North Face Thermoball™ Tent V Mules can’t be beaten for warmth and practicality - perfect for keeping your feet warm around the house if you're not a fan of the fluff. Described as being 'like mini duvets,' these iconic mules have soared in popularity since Kendall Jenner was spotted sporting a pair.

Skechers Women's Keepsakes-Ice Angel Slipper, £30

What Mumsnet users say
ohidoliketobe · Tried & Tested
[I wear] Skechers Women's Keepsakes-Ice Angel Slippers. Sturdy sole, memory foam, furry. I live in mine.
See Post

Our verdict

If you’re looking for a non-slip, hard-soled slipper that you can keep on when popping outside, these Skechers will be right up your street. With a thick rubber sole and a relatively high back, these durable slippers feel secure and comfortable on your feet. 

They tend to run a little big, so we recommend sizing down, but thanks to the warm and fluffy interior and memory foam insoles, they’ll even mould to your feet over time. Just pair with the best heated gilet and that quick trip to the bin or the end of the drive won't feel quite so chilly.


Best comfy slippers

Crocs Unisex Classic Slipper, £25

What Mumsnet users say
caramac04 · Tried & Tested
I have fur-lined Crocs. They are the best slippers I’ve ever had. My feet are toasty. I have a high instep so need good support. Until this pair, I was always disparaging of Crocs but have since bought a second pair for warmer days.
See Post

Our verdict

Available in a choice of ten colours, these soft and fluffy slippers are ideal for padding around the house, whether that's for toasty toes when working from home, or on chilled-out Sunday mornings in front of the TV.

Reviewers praised these slippers for their lightweight and comfortable design, but it’s worth noting that they do run a little small. Unlike traditional style Crocs, the soft suede bottoms are also best suited for indoor use only. 


Best felt slippers

Haflinger Unisex Emils Choice Booty Mule, from £62

What Mumsnet users say
JoanThursday · Recommended
I love Haflinger slippers. I like the felt ones: my feet go 'aaaaah!!' when I put them on!
See Post

Our verdict

These cute bootie slippers from Haflinger are made with pure wool felt which, just like the UGG slippers above, will keep your feet lovely and warm without them getting sweaty. If you’re working from home all day, the higher sides around the ankle offer excellent coverage and extra comfort. 

The soft leather sole is perfect for curling up on the sofa in the evenings without marking your upholstery - pop them on while snuggling under your heated throw and you're all set for a cosy night in.

I’ve bought Celtic & Co boot slippers. They are beautiful and keep my feet warm. True sizing and a lovely choice of colours. No plastic packaging either.

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.
See Post

Our verdict

While they don’t come cheap, Celtic & Co slippers come highly recommended on the Mumsnet forums, with users saying they’re well worth the higher price tag. The cosy sheepskin interior is wonderfully warm and the roll-down cuff can be left up for extra coverage on colder days.

Celtic & Co have been making these slippers for over 30 years and their attention to detail and quality is second to none. 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.

Best heated slippers

Warmies Fully Heatable Slippers, £16

What Mumsnet users say
PinkissimoAndPearls · Style of product recommended
Not particularly stylish but if you have cold feet... I give you MICROWAVE SLIPPERS! Best Thing Ever. Really! I have Raynauds so my toes are always icy and painful, I love my microwave slippers.
See Post

Our verdict

If you suffer from chilly feet, what could be cosier than slippers you can pre-warm in the microwave? Featuring a lovely, calming lavender scent for maximum relaxation, these heated slippers from Warmies are perfect for a snuggly night in.

As some reviewers point out, these slippers aren't designed for walking around, so you might be better off with something like the UGG Scruffettes if you've got things to do around the house. However, if your ultimate goal is to relax or warm up your feet without having to rely on central heating, these may be just the ticket. We'd recommend pairing with the best hand warmer on icy nights to keep your mitts as warm as your toes.


Best slippers with arch support

Just to second FitFlop slippers. I have two pairs of them, think the style is called Chrissie. Highly recommended!

Our verdict

If you’re looking for excellent support, FitFlop is a great place to start; their slippers have built-in foot arches and front and back impact pillows that are designed to support the natural movements of your feet. 

Lightweight and flexible, these stylish slippers have a soft and fluffy interior and are made with Fit Flop’s innovative air foam ‘iQushion technology’ - creating the perfect combination of comfort and warmth.

Best mule slippers

Giesswein Unisex Veitsch Slippers, from £66

What Mumsnet users say
StrugglingPianist · Tried & Tested
I wear Giesswein slippers. They're a bit orthopaedic looking but have arch support on the insole and can be thrown in the washing machine. Mine are a year old and look brand new still. They're wool so do the warm in winter/cool in summer thing too. Pricey though.
See Post

Our verdict

A unisex closed felt design made from 100% wool, these sustainable mule slippers can be freshened up when required by simply popping them in your washing machine at 30°C.

They may not be the most stylish option on our list, but they're warm and incredibly comfortable with extra stability from the arch support on the included footbed. You can even swap for orthopaedic insoles if required too. 


Best slipper boots

Shepherd of Sweden Annie Sheepskin Slippers, from £64

What Mumsnet users say
RandomCatGenerator · Tried & Tested
Shepherd of Sweden are great - nice thick soles, rubber and sheepskin. I buy a new pair every time mine wear out (every two to three years).
See Post

Our verdict

With over 40 years of experience designing high-quality sheepskin slippers, Shepherd of Sweden certainly knows their stuff when it comes to comfort. Their bestselling Annie design is a cross between a mule and a booty, sitting just above the ankle and offering excellent coverage for cold and chilly days.

Made from luxurious, soft and fluffy sheepskin and with a range of fun designs, these slippers can keep your toes warm and toasty all day long, while the practical hard sole is ideal for more active days pottering around the house.

Most durable slippers

See Post

Our verdict

These hardwearing, flexible slippers are made from recycled felt, and thanks to the durable rubber sole, they can be worn both inside and outside the home. Whether you’re watering your plants, taking the bins out, or playing with your dog in the garden, you can keep your feet warm and comfortable without needing to switch to your shoes.

What to look for when shopping for the best women's slippers 

With so many slippers to choose from, here are some things to consider when making your choice:

  • Style of slipper - Do you prefer the convenience of a slip-on mule design or a more traditional closed-back slipper? Alternatively, if you’re working from home and are prone to feeling the chill around your ankles, a booty design or slipper that sits higher at the back can offer additional coverage and warmth.

  • Suitable for outdoor use - What type of sole do the slippers have? Soft suede or sheepskin soles are best for indoor use only, but are more lightweight and flexible. Harder soles are more durable for occasional outdoor wear. 

  • Additional support - If you struggle with plantar fasciitis or have any orthopaedic support in your shoes, some flat-soled slippers may leave you with sore feet. To find slippers with a more natural foot position, look for designs with built-in arch support, removable footbeds or extra cushioning. Memory foam designs are also worth considering, moulding to your feet over time to achieve the perfect fit. 

  • Fabric - Some slippers are made from synthetic materials, whilst others are more sustainably made using natural or recycled materials. Fabrics such as sheepskin offer the most warmth, but do tend to be more expensive as a result. They also tend to be more breathable than some other slipper interiors, meaning your feet will stay warm and cosy without getting sweaty (or smelly!)

  • Cost - High-quality slippers are often an investment, but when you consider the cost-per-wear, they tend to offer relatively good value for money. Often the more costly designs are thicker, more robust and have more durable soles, meaning they tend to last longer than their cheaper high street counterparts.

What are the most comfortable slippers for ladies? 

It feels like we’d be doing Mumsnet forum users a disservice if we didn't mention Moshulu slippers as the most comfortable women's slippers to buy. This brand is super popular and it's easy to see why – the slippers are affordable and cosy and they have a hard sole with great traction that is a practical choice for wearing around the home.

How we chose the best slippers for women

We spent extensive time 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.
