Arch Support Slippers

One thing you do not commonly find in most slippers is cushioning and support features, such as arch support.

However, in this article, we specifically want to look at slippers with arch support and cushioning, that provide a more comfortable and supportive option for your leisurewear.


Why Should You Wear Slippers

I am sure I do not need to convince you to wear a pair of cozy and warm slippers after a long day at work, or from a training session.

However even so, here are some facts and benefits of wearing slippers that you may not have thought of;

  • Slippers Make You More Productive – When you are more relaxed in your slippers you will be more productive at home, or even in your leisure time. You might just get a few things one that you have long forgotten. Then again with so many people working from home, today slippers are such an excellent choice in footwear.
  • They Keep Your House Clean – If you wear slippers on the inside of your house rather than your work shoes and athletic shoes, you will actually keep your house much cleaner and also prevent the spread of germs inside your home much better.
  • Slippers Prevent Infections – Slippers protect your feet from fungus and bacterial infections that may be lurking on your home floor or other floor surfaces. They can actually create a barrier between your feet and germs or bacteria that may cause foot infections.
  • They Reduce Your Risk of Illness – Slippers essentially do protect you against colds and flu, especially in cold weather. The cold from the floor against your bare feet causes your body to lose heat rapidly, which in turn impedes your immune system and can lead to an increased risk of getting colds and flu.
  • They Protect Your Socks – It is better to wear slippers with your sock in winter than just socks alone. Your socks will be well-protected from wear and tear and will get so dirty.
  • They Prevent Slips – Running and walking barefoot on wet or even slippery hard falls are calling for slips and falls. Thus, a slipper with a good slip-resistant outsole can ideally protect you from slips and falls.

Why You Need Arch Support in Your Slippers

So why should you get slippers with arch support,

Well, ideally I would recommend slippers with arch support for people who have flat feet, or abnormally high arches, just as I would recommend arch support in any other shoe type.

Arch support can help where you have a lack thereof because of the shape of your feet, your arches, or because of your pronation type, whether Overpronation or supination.

Generally speaking, arch support is also good for the following reason;

  • Reduces Pressure – Arch support helps to diffuse pressure on your feet that would usually be taken by the heels or balls of the feet. It places some of the pressure in the arch area and spreads it outs more evenly across your feet.
  • Manages Pain – Good arch supports help keep your feet in better health, and also reduce impact. Thus you will feel less pain in your feet, ankles, joints, and knees because your feet are well protected against impact.
  • Prevents Injuries – Arch support can protect you against long-term injuries and issues that are related to your feet. They also take the pressure of when you have pain and inflammation in the heels or balls of your feet.3
  • Balance and Stability – Good arch support provides balance and stability which is ideal especially when you overpronate when walking or running, You can walk and run more comfortably with proper arch support and increased balance.
  • Prevents Overpronation – As mentioned good arch support provides the stability that is ideal for persons that tend to overpronate quite a bit.

Most slippers will have a warm fleece or shearling lining that provides insulation, however summer models may have a more breathable mesh or fabric lining. Slippers come in a variety of closed and open designs.
  • Cushioning and Arch Support – The slippers we have chosen specifically feature arch support, or an anatomical footbed that supports the arch of your feet. They also have EVA, Memory foam, and other foam cushioning, or Ortholite cushioning in the footbed for comfort and shock absorbency.
  • Outsole – Outdoor slippers will feature a rubber outsole that offers better grip and traction for indoor and outdoor surfaces. Indoor Outsole is leather, suede or EVA and softer for indoor use.
  • Options – Slippers with arch support may come in options regarding colors as well as wider widths and extended sizes.
