In February, I did a round-up of my favorite non-frumpy houseshoes for the ladies, and now, with the temperatures dropping, it's time the boys got their turn. I must admit: I'm jealous of a few of these…
1. Let's start out with the big guns: The Quoddy Chromepak Ring Boot from Unionmade is handmade in Maine, looks badass enough to wear while riding a motorcycle, and costs $375. The Quoddy is beautiful and will last forever and I know the perfect person to give a pair to if a.) I had $375 worth of slipper money and b.) I wouldn't be laughed out of town for spending $375 on slippers.
2. Also from Unionmade are the Armor Lux Amis Lunis. They're super cute, available in stripes, and made in France.
3. Toast's Wool Felt Slippers are simple, classic, timeless.
4. The Sorel Felt Mocs are better-looking than a lot of shoes out there, and I bet they're incredibly warm. I own a pair of hardcore-winter Sorel boots and they are amazing.
5. These totally-respectable-as-shoes Woolrich Arrowhead Slippers are from Cabela's. Woolrich makes some really nice stuff sometimes.
6. L.L.Bean's Washable Mountain Lodge Slippers are a good non-leather option, and the fact that they're (hand)washable is a huge plus. Slippers get dirty, too.
7. I'm not into hunting or hunting paraphernalia, but the idea of camo slippers totally cracked me up. The deer in the kitchen won't spot me when I'm wearing my L.L.Bean Wicked Good Moccasins!
8. Finally, there are the Wicked Good Slippers, also from L.L.Bean . I feel like there aren't that many men who could pull these off — you could, of course — but I had a tiny pair just like these when I was little and oh, how I loved them.
What kind of footwear do you wear around the house, gentlemen? And what kind of footwear do you wish you wore around the house?
