For centuries, men’s slippers have embodied informality and leisure time. Occasionally they may have been spotted at spa resorts, around hotel pools, or late at night when the man of the house takes the bins out. But wearing a pair of slippers has always been a private pleasure, usually confined to indoors. Slippers are having a serious moment in 2022- one that sees them leave the house confidently, and proudly for the very first time. Read on to discover the most stylish men’s slippers in Australia to consider sliding into this year.
What to look for when buying slippers for men?When it comes to buying slippers for men, there are a few things to look out for. Consider:
- Right fit: Ensure you have a good fit, especially with slide-on styles and mules. Too large and your foot will slip and move around. Too small and your heel will overhang at the back
- Material: Velvet and suede are beautiful fabrics for men’s winter slippers but beware of rain and puddles if you’re taking them out for the day (you can also weatherproof these fabrics)
- Warmth: Winter slippers with fleece or shearing inside provide more warmth than your average loafer or sneaker
What to avoid when choosing men’s slippers?On the flip side there are also a few things to be mindful of and actively avoid. They might sound obvious, but just in case make sure to say no to:
- Material of the sole: Don’t compromise on a quality sole as it will provide extra support to feet to walk comfortably around the house and beyond!
Can I wear slippers outdoors?The choice is yours, but the answer is yes! Thanks to the stay-at-home culture brought about by the COVID pandemic, as well as many celebrities rocking traditionally indoor slippers outdoors, this seems to be a trend here to stay.

3. Men’s Ugg SlippersAt Monte, we don’t make ugg style slippers, however we do understand their popularity. Consider the Kenton style from UGG if you’re looking for classic ugg boots. They’re ultra cosy thanks to the sheepskin lining and are best suited to winter. They feature a collapsible heel, so you can wear it up or down.

4. Men’s Moccasin SlippersAnother style that we don’t make at Monte is a traditional moccasin slipper. Whilst not part of the Monte aesthetic, we understand that some seek tried and trusted classic moccasins no matter what. If you’re seeking creature comforts, may we suggest the Premium Traditional Moccasins from UGG? They are made from genuine sheepskin and fitted with a light EVA sole which is great for relaxing at home in. They feature the classic white stitching on the top exterior panel and fluffy wool sides you’d expect from a good pair of moccasin slippers too.
Features of Ugg Moccasins:
- Premium grade 100% Australian merino sheepskins
- Fully lined with sheepskin
- Thick, warm natural inner fleece

We’ve even made them in varying styles to suit open-toed or close-toed wear, for your pleasure.
