The Best Vegan Slippers & Moccasins You Can Buy
No matter how old you are, everybody loves a good pair of comfy slippers! Not only do they keep your feet warm and cozy, but they also stop your feet from getting dirty and feel like you’re walking on clouds.
But due to their history, slippers are known for containing a range of fur, leather, and wool in them which is obviously a problem for us vegans. Does that mean we can’t wear slippers? Not at all!
Luckily, thanks to the advancements of manufacturing and technology, there are now a range of comfy vegan slippers available on the market. So no matter if you’re looking for a brand new pair for yourself or a friend, there’s something out there for everyone.
To help you find the best vegan slippers, we’ve hand-picked our favorites from ethical manufacturers who don’t use animal materials. And the impressive thing is, you won’t even notice the difference from non-vegan slippers! (Apart from feeling much better knowing no animals where harmed in the making of them).
But before we go into our best vegan slippers list, what should you be looking out for when shopping for slippers in the first place? Here’s what you need to know.
What To Look For In Vegan Slippers
Just like when shopping for other vegan shoes, there are lots of things you should be wary of before buying any slippers. This is because slipper manufacturers are known for using a whole range of animal materials to create their slippers, which is obviously not good for us vegans.
The first and most obvious thing to look out for is if they are made of leather or not. Many slippers often have a leather exterior shell, especially those in the higher end product ranges. If you are interesting in some leather shoes then be sure to check what they are made out of, as there is a chance it could be vegan leather (manmade) instead.
The second most common thing to look out for and check is what is inside the slipper. Many manufacturers like to use fur, which is sometimes real and sometimes not. Usually, the more expensive the slippers are, the greater the chance of them being real fur. However, cheaper slippers are most commonly made out of faux fur instead which is totally acceptable.
Last but not least, if a slipper doesn’t have an exterior leather shell, then the chances are it will be made from wool instead. Since wool is an animal byproduct it should be avoided at all costs. But always be sure to check the materials on the manufacturer’s website, some slippers look like wool but are actually synthetic meaning they are manmade.
For many consumers they are often wary about moving away from “traditional materials” such as leather and wool, but trust us, it’s not a bad thing. All of these modern synthetic and manmade materials have plenty of advantages. Not only do they last longer and are more durable, but they are also much cheaper than the real alternatives. Other benefits also include better insulation and being more breathable to stop your feet from becoming sweaty.
