If you want to wear your slippers both inside and out, you should be on the lookout for slippers with a thick sole. For outside wear, this sole will protect you from any small puddles or mud, and thicker soles will often provide better support and more comfort even when you're indoors. Furthermore, the
best indoor outdoor slippers have deep, anti-skid treads that make it easy to walk through all terrain, from wet grass to deep snow. You're even better off if that sole is made from a durable synthetic material or pure rubber to prevent moisture from seeping in.
You also want to make sure that whichever slippers you choose keep your feet at the perfect temperature. For anyone chronically cold (like me), it's probably a good idea to invest in a pair of
faux-fur slippers that will keep your feet toasty whether you're indoors or outside. On the other hand, if you tend to overheat easily, you may want to opt for a slipper lined with naturally moisture-wicking fabric, like fleece, or something with an open heel to allow for more airflow.
Booties or closed heel? Faux-fur or memory foam? There are so many options out there, it's tricky to find the
perfect indoor outdoor slippers for you. Here's a roundup of some of the best of the best to help you get started.
