One thing we didn't hate about 2020? The nationwide pivot to comfy shoes. Keep the cosy vibes coming and find your perfect winter pair at Melbourne's best slipper spots. Order online, ask about click and collect or visit in store from 11 June (if shops are in your travel radius).
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 classic 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 Tom and Jerry collab. 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 cool winter tones. Pair them with a matching sweat set for a cute cosy 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.
To swan around the house in winter, slip on a pair of Country Road toe cosies from David Jones. Available in the official Melbourne colourway of jet black and charcoal grey, no less. There are also plenty of pairs from EMU, Mimco and Hush Puppies available online.
This winter, grab some locally made moccasins from Jumbo Ugg. While the Queen Victoria Market stall is currently closed, the online shop is trading as normal. Navy, purple and pink looks are perennial favourites. Or dress up your at-home look with fluffy pastel sheepskin scuffs.
Have a lol whenever you look down with Dangerfield's range of novelty slippers. Beat back the biting winter chill with a chomping crocodile design. Or opt for plushy fried eggs, sweet strawberries and classic pompom options. Find it all online.
