10 Best Quilted House Shoes & Après Slippers for Men & Women


Bob Myaing

Bob Myaing is a Philadelphia-based mountain biker, climber, and writer with an unhealthy gear obsession.

In a world where many a day passes without leaving home, the humble house shoe—or slipper—now reigns supreme. But not all slippers are equal, that is for sure. When it comes to comfort at home that transcends to comfort while winter camping, vanlife-ing, and après skiing, you can't chance it with some dinky $15 joints from Target. This is serious gear, folks. Choose your fighter accordingly.

Swarth your feet with the same comfort a puffy jacket provides with a minimal slip-on or maximal booty of the caliber long familiar only to bivouacking adventurers. Whichever path you follow, with the following eight winter slippers for men & women, you'll be cozy all season long.

[Don't stop at slippers—consider a pair of down pants to reach peak cozy this winter.)]


The North Face ThermoBall Traction Mule V Wool Bootie

The North Face updated their modern classic clog with a merino wool outer and we're here for it. (Those looking for a more weatherproof option might opt for the original nylon Traction Mule). Cozy features include a fleece lined collar, quilted insulation, and a collapsible heel for easy on/off.

Teva Ember Moc Slippers

The go-to après ski/hike/bike/whatever slipper for many of our core outdoor industry pals, Teva's ever-growing offering off Ember Moc Slippers sit on a thicker midsole than some of the others in this list, making it more ready for outside wear. The rib knitted collar is a nice touch that highlights the shoe's collapsible heel, making slipping them on and off a breeze. A matching style is available in women's as well.

Vans Slip-er 2

The iconic slip-on you know and love, but in slipper form, and beefed up for winter. The underside even features an inverted version of Van's waffle sole for grip, should you decide to venture out into the elements. Even Spicoli deserves a snow day.

Rab Hut Slipper

British masters of insulation bring their warming expertise to your feet in their minimal yet stylish hut slipper. Dont, worry, we're pretty sure they work in your apartment too.

These lovely pillows for your feet may be the most minimal in design out of this roundup but they certainly deliver with a faux-shearling liner and high loft insulation.

Also available in womens sizes.

Glerups Slip-On

We know that these aren't quilted, but we'd feel remiss to not include the ultra-Hygge slippers from Denmark maker Glerups. The felted wool footwear is available in a number of colors with three choices of height-shoe, boot, and slipper (shown here)—as well as multiple sole option. Whichever combo you pick, it's sure to become your favorite footwear option in moments.
