L.L.Bean Women’s Wicked Good Moccasins

L.L.Bean Women’s Wicked Good Moccasins

The best slippers for women

These classic sheepskin slippers are comfortable and well made. They’re the best we’ve found for under $100, and they should last longer than cheaper shearling slippers we’ve tested.

L.L.Bean Men’s Wicked Good Moccasins

The best slippers for men

These super-soft, warm, and durable moccasins cost more than other sheepskin shearling slippers, but they feel fluffier and more breathable.

Buying Options

The Wicked Good Moccasins (women’s, men’s) are made from real sheepskin shearling that feels more breathable and stays fluffier for longer than the same material on similar pairs. (One tester reported using a pair for four years with no signs of wear.) We like these moccasins because they provide good all-around coverage of the whole foot but are still easy to slip on and off without having to use your hands. If moccasins aren’t your style, L.L.Bean carries a range of shearling slipper types in the Wicked Good line. The moccasins come with a thick rubber outsole, so they’re fine for both indoor and outdoor use. Throw in L.L.Bean’s excellent customer service and you’ve got yourself a pair of slippers that can’t be beat.

If your feet overheat easily or you want a more minimalist slipper, we recommend the Glerups Wool Slippers Open Heel and the Glerups Wool Slipper Boots. They were the most durable of the wool slippers we tested, since they’re made from one piece of felt—a construction technique not used by any of the other models—leaving them less prone to splitting or degrading with repeated wear. We recommend the slippers for year-round use, and we suggest the boots if you want full coverage around the ankles. Both are available in rubber-soled versions for indoor and outdoor use. Glerups also makes a shoe version, but our testers didn’t like those as much, noting that they were a little harder to slide a foot into. Buying Glerups through L.L.Bean will give you the best satisfaction guarantee, but if you’d like more color options, Huckberry carries a slightly different selection.

L.L.Bean Women’s Sweater Fleece Slipper Scuffs

L.L.Bean Women’s Sweater Fleece Slipper Scuffs

A vegan slipper for women

These are comfortable, soft, and more supportive than similarly priced slippers. They’re made with no animal products, but the synthetic fleece may cause sweaty feet.

L.L.Bean Men’s Sweater Fleece Slipper Scuffs

L.L.Bean Men’s Sweater Fleece Slipper Scuffs

A vegan slipper for men

These lightweight, comfortable scuffs are more supportive and better looking than other slippers under $50. The synthetic fleece makes them less breathable than wool slippers.

Made of polyester fleece, with an indoor/outdoor rubber sole (which is great if you want to avoid animal products), the L.L.Bean Sweater Fleece Slipper Scuffs (women’s, men’s) are lightweight, especially soft, and cozy. The insoles are slightly less supportive than those of our other picks, but most of our testers found them comfortable enough. These synthetic-fleece scuffs aren’t quite as breathable as our Wicked Good or Glerups picks, but they’re a good value for the price.
