Slippers for Foot Support

Generally, we do not take much consideration in terms of foot support and cushioning when choosing a pair of slippers.

I mean, they are just slippers, right? There to keep your feet warm so that you do not have to walk barefoot or maybe stub a toe.

However, slippers are much more than that, and they could be much more comfortable, and in turn, good for your feet if you take some time choosing slippers for foot support and comfort.


What are Supportive Slippers

Many of us work from home or are full-time parents that stay at home all day, and the most comfortable shoe for home wear is usually a pair of slippers that you can easily slip on and off your feet.

Then again, after a long day at work or out in the town, you want to get out of your shoes, your feet may be aching, and you reach for your slippers.

We reach for slippers because they are roomy and warm, giving you that cozy and nostalgic feeling, right?

However, when you walk in unsupportive flat slippers all day, you may feel that your feet are starting to ache and becoming tired. This is because regular slippers do not cushion and support your feet.

So, in turn, slippers for foot support have two main things, they are well cushioned to absorb shock, and they usually have either full arch support or an anatomical shaped footbed to support your arches.

Slippers for foot support keep your feet in proper alignment to prevent pain and issues and also provide good supportive cushioning, such as a midsole and insole.


Slippers are Good for You

Did you know that slippers have many more benefits than just being comfortable leisurewear?

  • No More Colds and Flu – Did you know that it is actually proven that cold feet cause diseases such as cold and flu. Because cold feet cause your blood vessels to constrict, fewer white blood cells pass, affecting your immune system that fights off infections. Similarly, on a different note, slippers also protect you against infections from fungus and bacteria that could be lurking on your floors.
  • Hot and Cold – Slippers can help to keep your feet warm in cold weather, and you also get summer slippers that in turn help to prevent sweating excessively.
  • Keep Your Feet and House Clean – When you are indoors, your feet may also get dirty and even wet. Think about the accidentally slipped coffee on the floor, dust, and other dirt. Then again, your shoes carry dirt and debris from outside that, in turn, may dirt the floors of your home. Thus a good pair of slippers indoors may also keep your home clean.
  • Grip – Especially on wet, hard, and slippery floors, a good pair of slippers can provide traction and grip that will protect you from slips and falls.
  • Comfort and Support – The Slippers we will be featuring will have proper support features and cushioning that will help to keep your feet comfortable and pain-free.

Features of a Good Slipper for Foot Support

These features are ideal to look for in slippers that are more supportive for your feet, as well as more accommodating for foot pain and certain foot conditions.
Support Slippers

  • Uppers – the Uppers should offer a roomy fit that allows you to easily splay out your toes. Slippers can consist of anything from soft suede leather to synthetic materials, wool, or other materials.
  • Support Features – The support features will include a cushioned and shock-absorbing foam midsole, a comfortable, softer cushioned insole, and arch support, or a contoured design footbed.
  • Outsole – Slippers may have an EVA or rubber outdoor and indoor outsole or a soft suede or leather indoor-only sole. However, most support slippers will have a harder outsole or thicker outsole.
