Women's Slipper Reviews:Men have a hard time shopping for the lady in their life whether it be a girlfriend, wife, mother, or sister. Men are not good shoppers to begin with and when the pressure is on the line to come up with gift around birthdays or Christmas they usually crack by buying kitchen appliances or non-personal gifts. The surest bet besides things like jewely (no woman can resist that) are things like a comfortable pair of slippers. Women love to be cozy in the evening and the early mornings before work and slippers help keep their feet warm. The choices are many but don't get intimidated with styles and colors. Most women's slippers are easy to select in colors like pinks or beige. Cashmere is the preferred material, but comfort is the most important feature you should be going after.
The hardest thing is deciding on which style is best - scuffs/open back, moccasins, slip-on, booties, flip flops, open back wedge, slipper socks, or sheepskin. There are hard sole, soft sole, and narrow/wide slippers. The top selling brands are Acorn, Bearpaw, Daniel Green, Hush Puppies, Jacques Levine, Minnetonka, Nixes, Old Friend, Oobees, and Smartdogs. You can find womens slippers in large retailers like Neiman Marcus, Bare Necessities, and J Crew or try going online to RedEnvelope.com or Onlyslippers.com. There are cheap pairs of womens slippers for under $25, but be prepared to spend closer to $40-$50 for a decent pair that won't fall apart after 1 season. The most popular slippers for women are those that are easy to get on and off (usually slip ons). The Old Friend Womens Scuff ($40) is a top seller online along with Acorn New Spa Thong Slippers that are more of a flip flop style but very trendy on the west coast. We found several websites and articles dedicated to buying slippers for women and past winners for "best slipper" have included Restoration Hardware cashmere slippers ($69), Bonjour Fleurette Meribel Booties ($36), and the Old Friend NothinZ Unisex Breeze (look like Crocs). The sheepskin interiors are definitely comfortable, but can often smell after extensive use just like most shoes that are worn without socks. We have tried to supply some of the latest styles that are popular amongst the ladies down below with pricing, where to buy, and a brief description. When buying slippers around Christmas, buy early since the most popular styles and brands will disappear off the shelves quickly. You can browse the top selling womens slippers online here.
