To find out which men's slippers are best for you, you will find the most important criteria below.

  • Model
  • Material
  • Colour & pattern

A brief explanation of the criteria will make it easier for you to compare and make a purchase decision.


There are many different slipper models that have specific functions.

  • Open-toed slippers for men: these so-called mules are not only very trendy at the moment, but also super practical. Thanks to their robust materials, mostly leather and rubber soles, they can also be used outside in summer. The straps are usually adjustable and the footbed is pleasantly padded - a high level of comfort for every man.
  • Men's closed slippers: This model is the classic among men's slippers. Whether in the morning straight after getting up or after a long day at the end of work: slip into the slippers without any complications and convince yourself of the pleasantly warming comfort.
  • Half-high slipper for men: This slipper model offers the ultimate feel-good factor! The half-high slipper is ideal for the cold winter. The slippers for men are equipped with an upper that warms the ankles at the same time. These sock-like slippers are made of cosy materials such as wool felt or sheep's wool and are also lined with lambskin or fleece.

It is obvious that the choice is difficult with so many models. If you can't decide between two pairs, just take both pairs. The slippers will then not wear out so quickly and you will be able to enjoy them for longer.


Depending on the season for which you are looking for your slippers, you should consider the merits of the materials. Slippers made of leather are suitable all year round and are characterised by their durability and secure hold.

Felt slippers, fleece slippers or men's slippers made of virgin wool are particularly warm and therefore score points in the cold winter months. Most of these models can even be washed at 30 degrees in the washing machine.

There are also slippers for men made of synthetic material. These are particularly quiet in their four walls and also very easy to clean.

If you choose a robust rubber sole (with a cork reinforcement), the slippers are even suitable for short stays in the garden or for going to the letterbox.

Colour & pattern

In general, the colour palette of the selection of slippers for men is rather dark. Grey, brown, black and blue are the most common colours. For the fashion-conscious gentlemen, some designers have also created more unusual styles or chosen special colours such as Bordeaux red.

If you are looking for a funny model in a comic design or for feel-good slippers of your favourite football team, you will definitely find what you are looking for. Many online suppliers produce a wide range of great models that make fans' hearts beat faster!

How do I care for and clean my men's slippers?

You should take good care of your men's slippers to ensure a long life. The implementation of this always depends on the materials from which the slippers are made.

Many men get sweaty feet from warm men's slippers, so the slippers stink after repeated wear. Therefore, air your slippers regularly and use a care spray afterwards to support hygiene.

Men's leather slippers with rubber soles can be easily cleaned of dust, lint or dirt with a shoe brush and wiped with a damp cloth. For ultimate care, rub your mules with a shoe polish that matches the leather. This will keep your men's slippers flexible and supple and enhance your look!

Flexible half-high slippers, fleece slippers and slippers made of wool can be machine-washed on the wool cycle at 30 degrees. Make sure not to use fabric softener and do not use a tumble dryer! To ensure that the slippers for men keep their shape, stuff them with plenty of newspaper when wet.

All other materials must not be put in the washing machine and should only be treated very sparingly with water.

Which slippers for men are best to wear both indoors and outdoors?

Slippers for men have long since ceased to be worn only by grandpas as a means to an end. More and more young, fashion-conscious men are wearing the practical shoes and combining them with cool outfits. Men's open-toe slippers in particular are very popular and are also favoured for outdoor wear.

Open or closed men's slippers made of plastic are also suitable for wearing outside the living area. They are water-resistant, which is why you can use them safely for gardening. Dirt can simply be wiped off with a cloth.

In principle, you can wear any men's slipper outside as long as the materials are robust enough. Slippers with a rubber or plastic sole are suitable. The upper material should be water-repellent and not susceptible to dirt.

We strongly advise against the use outside the home of half-height slippers and all slippers for men that do not have a firm sole. Men's slippers made of wool, fleece, felt, etc. are also better left at home.


Slippers for men are an absolute must-have in every cosy home. They support relaxation in your leisure time and contribute to your health in the cold winter by protecting you from the cold. However, they are not only available in warming materials. A variety of models are designed for summer and can also be worn for gardening or activities outside the home.

A wide range of different types of men's slippers is offered. Whether open and closed slippers or mid-height slippers that warm the ankle, there are men's slippers in every style. Consider your requirements for a men's slipper so that you make the perfect purchase decision. You will get the most out of your slippers for a long time if you pay attention to their care and air them regularly and clean them appropriately.
