When choosing slipper socks, think about how you'll be wearing them most. Will you be walking around the house? Lounging on the couch? Wearing them overnight? This will help determine what style, material, and length will work best for you.
Slipper socks fall along a spectrum of styles between socks and slippers. They’re thicker and more durable than regular socks since they’re meant to be worn alone. But they’re not quite as hardy as house slippers, and typically have a soft sole.
Slipper socks that veer towards sock territory often look just like regular socks. However, they’re made of a thicker and warmer material than regular socks. They may have silicone grips on the bottom to prevent sliding or a reinforced leather sole.
Compared to more slipper-style ones, sock styles are thinner and lower profile, creating a slim, fitted look. They come in many lengths, from ankle to knee-high. They’re great for layering and can be worn with or without shoes, making them a versatile option.
Slipper socks that tend more towards the slipper side of the spectrum are thicker and bulkier than sock styles. These types of slipper socks are designed to be worn alone.
Unlike regular house slippers, they do not have a hard bottom. Instead, slipper styles often have grippers or a reinforced felt or leather sole. They can be low cut or ankle length, making them easy to wear with all types of clothing.
Slipper socks range from low cut styles that cover just the feet to knee-highs that provide ample coverage. Each length has its own pros and cons.
Low cut styles cover just the feet and don’t quite reach the ankle. The opening will usually leave some of the top of the foot uncovered. Ankle slipper socks hit just at the ankle and provide a little more coverage.
These are super versatile styles that can go with anything. Wear them over socks or tights, with leggings, or with pants. Low-cut and ankle slipper socks are more likely to slide off than other styles, so make sure to look for a pair with elastic around the opening.
If you want a slipper sock that comes above your ankle, look for a crew-length or tall style. Crew-length comes above the ankle, while taller slipper socks can range anywhere from mid-calf to just below the knee. These styles might be more difficult to wear with certain bottoms, like leggings or pants with elasticized cuffs.
However, they provide more warmth and coverage up the leg and will make you feel super cozy. To prevent tall slipper socks from falling down, look for a pair with elastic around the cuffs and a good amount of stretch.
Slipper socks should be comfy and cozy, so the material they’re made of matters! You’ll typically see slipper socks made from both natural materials like wool, and synthetics like acrylic and polyester.
Wool is one of the warmest slipper sock materials because of its ability to trap heat. It’s not as soft or fluffy as synthetic fibers, but it’s thick and plush. Wool needs special care, as it can shrink during washing and drying. However, it’s quite durable. Wool is also naturally absorbent, so it’s great for sweaty feet.
Acrylic is a durable manmade fiber. It’s soft, warm, and lightweight. Acrylic is good at wicking moisture, plus it’s super easy to clean! Polyester is another synthetic fiber that’s snug and soft. It’s often used to make the fleecy lining of slipper socks. Polyester might not be as warm as other materials, but it’s strong and easy to care for.
If you have hardwood or tile floors, an anti-slip sole is important to prevent falls. Most slipper socks have silicone grips on the bottom, but not all do, so be sure to double-check. In lieu of grips, some may have a leather moccasin-style sole, which also provides traction.
If you have a pair that’s too slippery, you can even try adding your own grips to the bottom using puff paint or special sock paint.
Slipper socks come in a variety of styles and colors. Since they’re made for lounging, pick a pair that makes you feel happy and relaxed. If you’re drawn to simpler styles, try a neutral-colored slipper sock that will go with anything. If you want your slipper socks to look more like footwear, a moccasin or ballet slipper style is a great option.
For ultra-cozy vibes, look for fuzzy fleece, chunky knit, or chenille slipper socks. And if you’re drawn to all things cute, there are plenty of adult slipper socks decorated with adorable animals and wintry patterns.
As temperatures drop, layer up with plush knits, thick wool, and soft flannel. Here are more of our favorite cozy clothes for cold weather.
Slipper socks are a fantastic way to keep your feet warm indoors. With the feel of socks and the durability of slippers, they're comfortable and versatile. And the plush material will make you feel cozy and pampered.
When choosing a pair of slipper socks, think about what type of style you like on the sock to slipper spectrum. Look at different lengths and consider how they'll pair with what you usually wear, whether you're working from home or just hanging out. And don't forget to look for a non-skid sole if you have slippery floors!
