One thing we didn't hate about 2020 (and 2021...)? The nationwide pivot to comfy shoes. Keep the cosy vibes coming and find your perfect winter pair at Melbourne's best slipper spots.
Northern European slippers are wonderfully warm, designed for snow day lockdowns. Local shoe king Peter Sheppard has an awesome range from the likes of Haflinger, Hartjes and Shepherd of Sweden. But we can’t go past EMU’s fluffy Mayberry slides. Pair them with some quirky patterned socks for an OTT at-home winter look.
Launched by podiatrist Anna Baird, Bared Footwear blends style with comfort. The knitted home boot is built to last a million Melbourne winters to come, and it’s made right here in Australia. And of course, these slippers feature Bared’s signature removable biomechanical footbed.
The Ugg Shop
Think of uggs, and those iconic mid-calf boots instantly spring to mind. But there are plenty of other slipper styles at The Ugg Shop, too. Check out durable hiking boots, chic Chelsea boots and even a limited edition Easter bunny range. Or grab a local look and peruse the Australian made section.
Go online to launch a slipper search at Myer. There are heaps of styles to scroll through. A slick winter look awaits from Seed, with fluffy slides in a range of cosy winter tones. Pair them with a matching sweat set for a comfy look. Then check out Grosby, the Aussie slipper brand of choice for more than 80 years.
Ditch dirty soles outside and take on the Japanese habit of leaving shoes at the door. Then slide into a pair of room shoes from Uniqlo. They come in neutral colours, plaid patterns and fluffy styles. Double-layered insoles are moulded to the soles of your feet for max comfort. Plus they’re breathable, cushioned and hand-washable.
Print lovers Marimekko have always delivered fun into our wardrobes, and their latest take on the slipper is no exception. Featuring a 'Räsymatto' (rag rug) pattern, these shabby chic cuties are a cosy post-bath delight. Pair the 100 per cent cotton slip on with a contrasting sock in one of Marimekko's many signature patterns.
Have a lol whenever you look down with Dangerfield's range of novelty slippers. Brighten up your winter with rainbow tinted faux fur designs, mushroom slippers and cute puppy looks. Plus find cute prints like mushrooms, apples and bees.
