Why should we give any thought to what house shoes we buy? When we go into a shop to buy shoes we usually think very seriously about what shoes we are going to buy knowing that they have to be comfortable shoes otherwise it will be difficult to wear them all day. But no matter what we wear during the day when we come home most of us have one thing in mind and that is to put on a nice pair of house shoes. In this article I will try to present to you some of the best house shoes for women.
The house shoes or slippers are the nice pair of shoes we wear when we are at home, they are usually very light and comfortable, made of soft materials that allow our feet to relax and breathe after a long day of walking. Taking into consideration how many of us wear slippers everyday it is surprising to see that usually, they are a much-ignored category of footwear. If we buy the right slippers we can have them for a very long time and we can make sure that when we come home we will be able to relax and let our feet have that nice feeling of softness and comfort; this is why we should make sure that we buy the slippers that fit our needs best.
What should we look for in a good pair of slippers?
Just like normal footwear, there are a few things we should keep in mind when it comes to slippers, we want to make sure that they are comfortable, made of good material, have a good price and fit our style.
Look for comfort
The health of our feet depends also a lot on the slippers we use, we want to make sure we choose something that lets our tired feet to relax and breath, that is why we should make sure that they are very light, something that does not feel heavy on the feet. Another plus for a pair of light slippers is that they are very easy to take in a small carryon bag for any tip you might have because let’s be honest we all want to have our slippers with us when we travel.
Another thing we should think about is the mornings when most of us are in a rush and we want something easy to put one, a pair of slippers we can just slip on quickly. Nobody wants slippers that take you five minutes to put on, think about all the other things you can do in the meant time in the morning.
Search for good material
A shoe made of good material usually means that it is long-lasting and you will not have to buy another one every three months. I consider that it is better to invest in shoes which are made of strong materials because like this you will avoid having to repurchase, the goal should be a pair to last you for years. Good materials mean not only long-lasting but a better choice for your skin. Our skin is a living organ that needs to breathe so if we wear slippers that stop this natural process from happening we can develop all kinds of problems. We should be on the hunt for shoes made out of more natural materials such as cotton, leather, suede or sheepskin that will allow our skin to follow its natural course.
Check the price tag
This brings us to another important, sometimes the most important aspect of buying anything, and that is the price. Most of the slippers made out of chemical materials are cheaper than the ones made out of more natural materials and most people tend to go for them.
What they don’t take into consideration is exactly what I mentioned before; conventional materials tend to break much quicker so you will find yourself trapped in this vicious circle of buying very cheap slippers that break after just a few uses and having to repurchase. If you were to add a few extra dollars in the first place you would not have to buy so often. Does that mean that good quality slippers have to be expensive? Absolutely no! You can find a wide range of slippers created from the materials you are looking for but for a price that does not require you to spend a small fortune.
Find your style
We have so many options now when it comes to clothes and shoes; stores are full of pieces that can offer us something regardless of our style. It does not have to be different when it comes to our slippers. There are so many different shapes, colors and styles that we can be sure to find something which fits our taste. This is why on my list you will find a variety of different styles of house footwear.
Having all these aspects in mind I will try to make a list of some of the best options to check all the right boxes when it comes to home footwear. This list will only include mostly slippers for women, but some of them can be gender-neutral.
