After a long day of work and shuttling my kids all around town, I look forward to coming home and putting on a comfy pair of slippers. Often misunderstood because of their unfashionable reputation, I’m here to convince you that this cozy footwear is no longer just for grandmas.
My slipper of choice is the Minnetonka Cally Slipper ($38.95) available from Nordstrom NorthPark Center. These cozy house shoes come from my home state of Minnesota, and are a quintessential American brand that has been around for more than 70 years. They are durable, comfortable, and fashionable and come in the standard tan or a variety of fun colors.
Crocs are best known as the casual, plastic slip-on shoe that is convenient for trips to the pool or beach. During the cool winter months, the fuzzy insides of the Blitzen Clog ($49.99) from Crocs NorthPark Center will keep your toes warm and cozy. Your kids will love them, too.
Slippers became a true fashion statement with the arrival of the UGG. Their classic bootie is the most popular style, however when you’re home, a better option is the Ansley Moccasin Slipper ($100) from Neiman Marcus NorthPark Center. The epitome of relaxed luxury, UGG slippers and shoes are water-resistant and feature a suede exterior and 100% wool lining.
Slippers have certainly come a long way from the fuzzy pink poofs that used to be the standard. And while you may not see them on the runway, you can bet your favorite super models are sporting them in the comfort of their own homes too.
