Fluffy-lined shoes for that all-day slipper feeling
Even though we’re all getting back to a somewhat normal routine that involves spending time in offices, restaurants, stores, even airports, we’re still craving the comforts of home, even when we’re out. One thing that will help: a pair of outside shoes that feel like your favourite pair of slippers.
Fluffy and fuzzy footwear is everywhere for fall 2021, and while some of the iterations give off serious Bigfoot vibes, many are more subtle, with shearling lining or faux-fur trim that just hints at the cosy cocoon within.
Here are eight pairs you could leave the house and walk a mile in without your feet being any the wiser.
Stuart Weitzman loafers, $550, brownsshoes.com
Add shearling to a loafer (another trend taking over this fall) and you get a menswear-inflected mix of sophistication and comfort.
Call It Spring clogs, $50, callitspring.com
If you thought clogs were over, think again because they’re back and more enticing than ever. These cuties are the love child of Crocs and slippers you never knew you needed.
Ash Ghost mules, $249, thebay.com
If you’re in search of a pair of actual slippers that can pass for shoes, you’ll want to get your hands on these fuzzy mules. The padded insole provides maximum cosiness, while the lug sole and chain detail lend a bit of edge.
Birkenstock sandals, $190, Nordstrom.ca
Birks are a classic for a reason — it’s no wonder we’re looking for ways to wear them year-round. Whether you pair the shearling-lined version with ankle socks for a sock boi vibe or wear them around the house, you’ll feel like you’re walking on the fluffiest of clouds.
Jimmy Choo shoes, $1,225, jimmychoo.com
Slip into pure luxury with these decadent Jimmy Choo ballet flats. Made from teddy-esque faux fur and adorned with crystal straps, they will be the star of your at-home holiday cocktails.
Sorel boots, $190, sorelfootwear.ca
Winter will be arriving any minute, we’re afraid. Make sure you’re prepared with a pair of shearling Sorels, which not only look on-trend but are super warm and water-resistant.
Dr. Martens boots, $260, drmartens.com
It doesn’t get more iconic than a pair of Docs, and these Chelsea boots were made for pounding the streets with a chunky platform and fluffy lining.
