5 of the Best Brands for Slippers

Have your slippers been firmly fixed to your feet all year? If so, you know how precious they are. Your feet’s best friend, they provide us with optimum comfort, warmth and protection when we need it. Whether you wear yours when driving, gardening or just around the house, they’re a necessity and should offer support and style. If your slippers deserve an upgrade this festive period you’ve come to the right place, here’s a run down of the five best brands for slippers.

#1 How are slippers supposed to fit?

You should select your regular shoe size when choosing your new slippers. They are designed to have a more relaxed and slouchy fit so will feel a little more roomy than your outside footwear. If your regular size feels too oversized, we suggest moving down a size.

#2 Can slippers go in the washing machine?

Over time your slippers may become less fresh. Although many are crafted from materials that can’t be put in the washing machine there are other methods to give them a clean.

  • For odour give them a wipe with a baby wipe then sprinkle a little bicarbonate soda inside and leave in for an hour and hoover up – this should lift odours without the need to scrub.
  • For spot cleaning, mix some warm water with a gentle detergent and blot marks with a microfibre cloth.
  • If your slippers are machine washable, wash them on a low temperature on a slow short spin cycle.
  • DO NOT wash suede or sheepskin slippers in the washing machine. Use a suede protector spray and a suede brush to keep them looking fresh.
