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.

In a hurry? These are the best indoor outdoor slippers.

Editor’s Choice: Sanuk Women’s Cozy Vibe Low Slippers

For a pair of slippers that can go anywhere, this pair from Sanuk offers lightweight comfort and coziness. The upper is made of a breathable blend of cotton and hemp, and the collapsible heel is responsibly sourced leather. Inside is a fuzzy blend of wool and Tencel that feels soft and warm without any bulk, making the pair super easy to slip into. But perhaps the biggest selling point is the bouncy outsole made with sugarcane EVA foam — offering the lightest lift-off feel.

According to one BDG commerce editor: “These slippers are actually like two pairs in one because of the cool heel design: It can be worn as a full shoe or pressed down for a slip-on mule. I love that versatility! And as a long-time Sanuk fan, I’m obsessed with the yoga mat-like sole that’s so light and springy. These slippers have taken plenty of trips outside to get mail, food deliveries, and more, and they still look like new.” -Kate Miller
