What are the 10 best indoor slip on shoes for women right now?
Indoor shoes. Don’t worry if you recoiled at the very phrase: these are, of course, shoes that have never seen the sidewalk, and are therefore safe – and clean! – to wear around your home.
And even if you are typically a sock-wearing or barefoot-going kind of person, the arrival of the winter season seems to make a good case for finding yourself a pair. After all, they’re warm and cozy, and you can always find a comfy pair of socks to go with them if you want to go extra.

And if you’re wondering about the difference between an indoor shoe and a slipper – well, these slip on shoes offer just a bit more support. They’re shoes that theoretically could go outside, but that you’re choosing to designate for home-wear only.
But don’t be fooled: just because they’re comfortable and cozy doesn’t mean that can’t also be deployed for remote work. What better way to Zoom and be the boss from the kitchen table than with a smart pair of slip on shoes? These might just give you the propulsion you need to accomplish all your tasks this month.
Here are our ten favorites in the slip on shoes for women category – and yes, there are sparkles (for the winter holidays, of course), including excellent options from luxury brands like Ugg, Birdies, Allbirds and Crocs.
