Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire (with my cozy slippers) is so delightful! Did you know? Slippers are VERY important for your overall foot health. When your foot hits a hard surface, your foot is forced to try to contour to the ground, which can result in foot pain and problems over time. Slippers can help protect your feet inside the house while also providing the warmth and comfort you need. Slippers also make amazing gifts!
One of the best things about winter is cozying up next to the fire with a good book and your favorite pair of slippers. We carry many amazing slipper brands here at Stan’s, so we know there are a lot to choose from! We have compiled a list of our top 5 favorite slipper brands just for you:
Haflinger is a fan favorite for many great reasons; they are made in Germany and have many cute patterns like dogs, chickens, polkadots, and hearts for everyone to fall in love with. Most Haflinger styles have soles that have an excellent cork footbed which will give you nice support to wear both indoors and outdoors. If you have Plantar Fasciitis, Haflinger slippers will be your new best friend, as the natural cork footbed will contour to your foot and promote optimal comfort and support. If you have a lot of hardwood floors in your house they will also be a huge foot saver. Made with boiled wool to keep your feet at a constant temperature whether it is warm or cold. Temperature regulation, yes please! Haflinger provides comfort and style for every day and every season, and are the perfect slippers if you work from home.
OluKai is a Hawaiian culture inspired brand, to promote superior health, comfort, and support with soft and trendy slippers for every season. The drop-down heel feature gives you options of having a clog-like slip on slipper or having a fully enclosed supportive heel. They even have an everyday option that you can wear out and about to the grocery, while the feeling of a cozy shearling slipper lines your foot. We love the earthy colors of the OluKai Nohea slipper shown in Cedarwood below.
We all know of the famous Birkenstock from it’s classic Arizona two-strap model, now that same two-strap cork footbed is in a slipper too! Birkenstocks have more of classic neutral style for slippers to wear inside the house or to the grocery store too. Cozy days brought to you by a wool design, toasty lining, and your favorite contoured footbed that molds to the shape of your foot.
Experience Vionic’s famous 3 zone comfort (Stability, Arch Support, and Cushioning), while in the comfort of your own home. Slip into something cozy and attractive with incredible arch support for both indoor and outdoor wear. Vionic has a slipper called the Relax, which is bound to keep you relaxed all day long.
Acorn is known for its popcorn Moccasin slipper, that basically feels like putting your foot in a cloud! However they also have really fun and unique designs, one of our favorites being the owl and squirrel slippers! Acorn slippers are inspired by the colors of nature and are perfect slippers for relaxing or for your next camping adventure. Whether around the campfire or your living room, these are perfect slippers for the down time in your life. A moisture-wicking liner keeps feet dry, while a cozy upper provides the warmth your feet need.
For the cozy lovers in your life, all of these slippers would make wonderful gifts! Give the gift of comfort to that friend or family member (or yourself!) that works extra hard and deserves some soft slippers in their life. To give your feet even more cozy options, we also carry Ugg, Sorel, Foamtreads, and Taos slippers as well!
