That conception you have about slippers — that they’re fluffy, indoors-only shoes — it’s wrong. Not entirely, (most slippers likely fit that description), but some examples refute it, elevating the slipper to something that’s not only cozy but practical too.
Glerups is perhaps the best example. They’re made in Denmark with a mix of merino and Gotland wool that’s felted, so it has a hardier texture that’s plush without looking like it. They’re warm too, and the family that came up with them was thoughtful enough to make a version with a rubber sole that can handle grass, dirt and snow should you want to wear them beyond the limits of the front door (my pair has become my après ski shoe of choice).
Rubber-soled Glerups slippers are currently on sale at Huckberry for 20 percent off in various colors and in shoe and ankle boot heights.
