Five Best House Slippers for Women

Sure, a sexy pair of heels is great for a night out, and trendy sneakers are the perfect choice for casual outings. But for some situations, there’s only one option: house slippers.

Your favorite outdoor shoes can never be replaced, but they simply don’t hit the mark for a cozy day at home. While many people simply go barefoot around the house, this can lead to aching feet and cold toes—two things that any podiatrist would advise against. 

For these reasons, it’s crucial to have a good set of house slippers lying around. 

Unfortunately, not all slippers are created equal. From rough lining to flat arches, a cheap pair of house shoes can do more harm than good when worn for extended periods. If you’re wearing house shoes, especially, you should be able to ditch the foot pain and other issues associated with cheaply made slippers and opt for more comfortable, warm, fuzzy slippers that will keep your feet supported.

Here at Vionic, we specialize in supportive and comfortable slippers and shoes of all kinds. That’s why we offer a wide selection of slippers for all types of feet. If you’re looking to make a commitment and find your perfect pair, check out this guide for the best house slippers for women.

For Breathability: Gracie Toe Post Slipper

Womens house slippers are supposed to be comfy. But is there anything more uncomfortable than hot, sweaty toes inside a pair of hot, sweaty slippers? We created the Gracie Toe Post Slipper to combat this icky sensation while providing the necessary support that typical slide sandals and flip flops lack.

This thong-style women’s slipper is changing the footwear game, and we can’t get enough of it. To get a better idea of whether or not this style is the right fit, take a look at the specs:

  • Terrycloth material – This women’s slipper is lined with luxurious, spa-grade terrycloth. Forget about the rough, scratchy towels you may have used in the past because this terrycloth is designed to make your feet feel cushioned, cool. Plus, it prevents sweaty feet.
  • Orthaheel technology – Sandals aren’t always the most supportive style of footwear, but Vionic sandals are built differently. We incorporated our unique Vionic technology in this sandal-style slipper by building an orthotic insole. If you’ve struggled to find open-toed slippers that actually support your arches, look no further than the Gracie slipper.
  • Odor-resistant Ecofresh footbed – Even with the breathable design of this slipper, sometimes foot odor is unavoidable. That’s why we’ve treated the Gracie slipper footbed with antibacterial Ecofresh—an environmentally friendly zeolite mineral that absorbs moisture and odor. 

Who will love this slipper: For the individual who wants to lounge comfortably without worrying about sweat or odor, the Gracie Toe Post Slipper is definitely the way to go. Transport yourself to the spa by slipping on one of the most comfortable house slippers on the market, in either light grey or sleek black.

For an Adjustable Fit: Relax Slippers

If you want a breathable slipper, but don’t love the thong shape of the Gracie, then look no further than our Relax Slippers. They’re made with the same odor-resistant terrycloth and Vionic footbed technology as the Gracie, but with a much different shape—more like traditional slides and sandals with horizontal straps across the arch. 

Let’s take a look at what this lightweight slipper has to offer:

  • Adjustable hook-and-loop closure – The cross straps of the Relax are equipped with a hook-and-loop closure. This velcro strap makes it easy to adjust the fit of your slipper for maximum comfort throughout the day. 
  • Flexible EVA midsole – The Relax Slippers are designed with midsole technology that helps absorb shock and reduce stress on the feet, ankles, and knees. The bottom sole of this slipper is lined with a fabric-covered wave pattern to help increase traction on hardwood floors. 
  • Cute colors and patterns – The Relax Slippers come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including black, tiger print, purple, coral, tan, pink, leopard print, and light grey. If you want a breathable slipper with a bit more style, the Relax is a great option. 

Who will love this slipper: Anyone who has sensitive feet, flat arches, or simply wants to show off their personality will love what the Relax Slipper has to offer. For days spent walking around the house, this style will have your feet feeling their best (and, not to mention, their cutest).
