Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have ​People’s Choice​, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item ​here​.) 

And while we’ve written about lots of ways to keep your feet warm — including the best UGGs and the best men’s slippers — here, we’ve rounded up the best women’s slippers, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon. 

Best-rated women’s slipper

BOBS from Skechers Women's Keepsakes Ice Angel Slipper

“FREAKING AMAZEBALLS,” is how one reviewer describes these slippers, and they’re one of many who are impressed with how well these wear both indoors and out. “I’m almost hard pressed to call them slippers, more of a shoe/slipper hybrid, but they are incredible,” another reviewer writes. “You could easily wear these around the house, outside, or even down the street to the store or to run a quick errand.” That’s likely because of the thick, rubber sole, which one reviewer describes as “super sturdy on the outside but very soft on the inside to walk on so I wear them everywhere when I don’t feel like putting on regular shoes.” As for the feel inside, nearly 40 percent of reviewers use the word “comfortable,” though a handful describe it as firm. “They are much firmer than most slippers which is what I was looking for,” one explains. “I have hardwood and tile floors and wanted something that gave me more support and these will be perfect.”

“These slippers are like walking on a cloud,” one reviewer with wide feet says. “I wanted a nonslip 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.” Another says these are “adequate for wide feet, and in fact, felt pretty comfy.” Another reviewer thinks they’re so comfortable, “I reordered them by looking them up under previous orders. I wear these all day for most of the day and they are comfortable from day one until it’s time for another pair!”

And now for some micro-picks of every type of women’s slipper you might be looking for.

Best nonslip women’s slipper

Sorel Women's Nakiska Slipper

“The Sorel slippers are the best slippers I have ever owned and they last twice as long as others too,” one reviewer writes, adding, “I work from home so I wear them all day, every day, and they have lasted well over a year.” And dozens of reviewers specifically call out the nonslip sole. “The soles are very sturdy and nonslip. You could actually walk outdoors with them if you so desired (although I will not since I don’t wear outside shoes in my house),” one writes. However, several do note that these aren’t exactly slip-on slippers. As one user points out, “These have a bit of a lip behind the heel so your feet are secure, but it’s not like an ankle boot.” But according to another satisfied customer, that construction means “They stay on without ‘flapping’ or making me hold on with my toes.”

Best year-round women’s slipper

Isotoner Women's Satin Ballerina Slipper with Bow, Suede Sole

These slippers have quite a cult following, with some reviewers saying they’ve worn these for decades. One customer, who’s been wearing them for 25 years, writes, “This is a product that is consistently a good fit, holds up extremely well, and is so wonderful for relaxing your feet after a long day.” Reviewers particularly appreciate the leather sole, including one who writes that though they’re not technically nonslip, “They are grippy enough to help me run up and down the wood stairs without slipping.” Mostly, reviewers like how lightweight these are, making them suitable for year-round use. “I like to have my feet covered but hate traditional slippers because they’re always too bulky and make my feet hot,” one explains, adding, “These are breathable and have a lightweight material.”

Best moccasin slippers

UGG Women's Ansley Moccasin

“I have had many brands of moccasins and these by far are made the best,” writes one reviewer who owns so many slippers they “could almost open a store.” Dozens of other reviewers also comment on the quality. “I have had another pair of UGG slippers for years and I am still wearing them, so I feel you get what you pay for,” one reviewer writes. They explain, “Since these are a slipper, I didn’t expect a good arch support, but the sole on these slippers is something that you can step outside and pick up the newspaper, or even take a short walk on the sidewalk in the morning and not slip and fall down.” Another customer appreciates that these Ugg moccasins are, “Fleece lined so it feels like your arches are supported and are wider moccasin than Minnetonka, and extremely comfortable.” And while many agree with this user who says, “The only con is that these do run a bit snug,” another reviewer recommends that you, “Wear them a few times to loosen up.”

Best women’s backless sheepskin slippers

UGG Women's Scuffette II Slipper

“UGG slippers — what more can you want?” one reviewer asks. And though many reviewers were drawn to these because of the brand, lots attest that these live up to the hype. Specifically, they think they provide just the right amount of warmth. “These slippers are always the perfect temperature for my feet,” one writes. Another says, “backless stuff is sometimes awkward and clunky, but these form to your feet and feel amazing,” adding, “and although they are backless, they are still warm without wearing socks.” Many reviewers say they run small, including this user who says, “Personally I would order the next size up so your heel does not drag the floor.”

Best structured women’s slipper

UGG Women's Tasman Slipper

“These UGG slippers are honestly the ONLY shoe/slipper that keeps my feet warm in the winter,” one reviewer writes, while another says, “If you want a shoe to wear around the house that will cosset your weary foot in comfort, this is the one.” That comfort isn’t just from the sheepskin lining, though. Many reviewers use the word “supportive” to describe these slippers. One writes, “Looked everywhere for a comfortable, supportive, nonrestrictive shoe found this … Wool is cushioning and supportive and thick tread wonderful.” Another says, “If you have problematic tootsies that need a gentle arch, slight structure, and comfy fluff for your feet to behave, these are the slippers for you.”

Best memory-foam women’s slipper

Women's Cozy Memory Foam Slippers Fuzzy Wool

“With a memory-foam footbed that feels like walking on clouds, they’re also warm and soft to the touch so my bare feet are happy,” one reviewer writes. Another describes them as, “SO comfortable with the memory foam and warm.” They add, “Love the thick rubber sole on the bottom, so there is no way you would slip.” The sole is so sturdy that, according to one reviewer, “They wear well indoors and on the few occasions when I have had to run outside or out to the garage — although these are sturdy and can handle more than that.” Another who lives on a ranch and wears their slippers outside a lot says, “They have great grip/soles and the stitching is very durable and great quality.” One note many users leave is that they run small so this customer, “ordered a size up like other reviewers said and they fit perfectly.”

Best orthotic women’s slipper

Vionic Women's Gemma Mule Slipper

Several reviewers with foot pain turn to these slippers and say they help significantly. “These slippers were a great help and comfort during seven months of treating my plantar fasciitis,” one writes. “These Vionic slippers supported my feet very well and I had less heel pain while wearing these around the house.” Another says, “I love these Vionic house shoes because I have plantar fasciitis and I need to always wear a shoe that has an orthotic.” Another mentions the arch support, describing it as “high and firm without being uncomfortable,” adding, “The heel cup is deep and really helps to keep your foot stable even on an uneven surface.” Reviewers also note that the adjustable strap adds to the comfort. “The velcro-type flap makes it easy to adjust for foot width and/or height,” one writes. “I was worried that they wouldn’t fit my super wide and tall feet, but they are perfect due to that feature.” A few note that just like regular orthotics these take time to get used to, but as one user says, “these are my first pair of ‘orthotic’ shoes and they were a bit weird to wear for about ten minutes but now that it’s been 24 hours, my feet CRAVE the support.”

Best slippers for wide feet

One parent with wide feet bought these moccasins for their daughter who also has wide feet: “The hardest part of finding any kind of footwear for either of us is that we require double wide sizes, and slippers are especially hard to find in a definitive width,” but “these have thus far exceeded all others we’ve tried, which is in itself amazing.” And while many people with wide feet are concerned with the arch area of the slipper, one user says they are roomy all over, with “toes not squished at all.” Beyond the fit, reviewers praise the look and the price as well. One writes that they “Can’t believe the great quality, comfort and look at this low price.”

Best indoor and outdoor women’s slipper

BEARPAW Women's Loki Ii Slide Slipper

About 10 percent of reviewers mention wearing these slippers both inside and outside, because of the solid sole. “These slippers are great, well made, and the sole on the bottom is solid — like a shoe,” one writes. Another says that even though they are “heavy enough to wear outside,” they’re comfortable enough to make you not want to take them off.” They add, “They are like walking on clouds. Heated clouds.” And about a third of reviewers reference how warm these keep their feet. “I live in Maine and this winter has been pretty cold thus far, but these slippers have done a wonderful job keeping my ever-frozen feet warm,” one writes.
