Happy cozy season everyone! Glorious October is here. Temperatures have slightly dropped in Charleston, which means it’s time to break out the fuzzy slippers. Last fall, I went on a mission to discover the perfect slipper. 8 pairs later and I ended up going with the pair I originally had that I was looking to replace (they were just really old). So, today I am going to share with you a fuzzy slipper review (originally from my IG stories of 2021) that *literally no one* asked for but turns out you all needed.
When this mission first started, I purchased two pairs of fuzzy slippers, but I didn’t love either of them, so I purchased two additional pairs. I then owned four pairs at once. A plethora of sherpa. However, you will see at the end of this, I ended up purchasing 8 pairs total to find the right one.
I am going to compare all eight pairs I ordered, in case you find yourself in the same predicament I did last Fall. Without further ado, here is a deep dive on fuzzy slippers.
To start, I purchased four pairs. I got two priced under $25, and another two at under $50.
1. The wider leather slipper at $22
- I was intrigued by the leather top
- I really like the rubber sole. I want to be able to walk outside/in the grass in my slippers.
- Great price point
- Fairly wide and makes me feet look wider than they are. If you are wide footed you might like these.
2. The overly-fluffy slipper
- Good rubber bottoms
- I really like this color!
- VERY warm and fuzzy
- Good price point at $24
- Over 15,000 mostly 5-star reviews!
- Just A LOT of fur for the South. Maybe if I lived in a colder climate.
3. The Fireside slide on
- Really nice solid bottoms
- Less fur on the sides in comparison to pair #2
- Really comfortable
- Nice THICK bottoms
- Over 10,000 mostly 5-star reviews!
- $50 (not really a con, I think it’s fair for a good slipper but just in comparison to the above two)
- Slightly wide for my liking
4. The Ugg slide on
- The toe is more narrow which I prefer. Great overall flattering shape.
- You can tell they are really well made
- Over 10,000 mostly 5-star reviews!
- $89, but coming from a brand I know and love
- The bottom has less cushion and the sole is much thinner. I question how they would hold up outdoors
- Not a con but I found that Uggs run big, I sized down to a size 9 and normally wear a 10.
2 weeks later, per all your recommendations, I bought two more pairs of slippers from L.L. Bean. So many of you suggested I try their Wicked Good Slippers, so I tried two versions. I have to be honest, I was underwhelmed.
5. The L.L. Bean Wicked Good Scuffs
- Super soft
- Substantial rubber sole
- Looked wide on my foot
6. The L.L. Bean Wicked Good Slippers, Boot Moc
- Again, good base, rubber sole
- Boot slipper hybrid
- Very wide
- I could not for the life of me figure out if I have the slipper on the right foot. They may have given me two left pairs. I shared this in my stories and so many of you agreed; they always looked like they were on the wrong foot. It was so bizarre!!
Both of these pairs went back because of how wide they are and frankly were not worth the money to me.
And now, for the final installment of the slipper saga. With two final pairs to try, I found my Cinderella slipper.
- Super narrow and flattering
- Comfy fur. I was told Ugg has inner lining replacements if the fur gets gross.
- The bottom does have rubber, but not all the way to the sides (like the sole on a driver). I fear they would still get destroyed if I go outside in them.
- Again, not a con but size down 1 size.
8. Minnetonka Camp Tie Moc: THE WINNER!
- Robber sole goes all the way to the side
- Narrow, flattering shape
- Very comfortable and true to size
- Very durable. My assistant also has these and has worn them for over a decade and still loves them!
- The tie does easily come undone. I personally took the tie out and there are now just holes there. But that’s how you know they are still worth a darn. Tie or no tie!
I did also try the J Crew Moccasins in store at their outlet location, and found them to also be a little wide for my preference but they are still worth mentioning.
In the end I decided that my favorite are the Minnetonka Camp Tie Mocs. I have wanted to wear them everyday for the last year and they continue to bless me.
What’s funny about this final selection, is that my old moccasins I was replacing were Minnetonka Camp Tie Mocs. I could have just replaced them with what I know I like after wearing them for years, but I didn’t. I thought, I am going to try something different! And here we are. So yes, I ordered 8 pairs of slippers only to get THE EXACT SAME AS MY OLD SLIPPERS. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. After a month of searching, I landed back with the exact same slipper I started with.
By the way these are some slippers that I’ve been wearing around as daytime shoes because you can get away with it. I personally don’t love these as bedroom slippers because they are not as easy to get on and off.
Thank you for coming along on this slipper journey with me! I hope you too will find the slipper of your dreams.
