In the cold winter months, when temperatures drop below freezing at night, there's nothing better than sitting snug by a fire with a pair of comfy slippers.
Insulation, comfort, material and design are all at the top of the list of important factors when choosing the perfect pair. You want something homely, that's for sure; and if you can pop out to the newsagents in them, then all the better.
Well, you're in luck. From sophisticated velvet loafers to modest moccasins and faux fur ankle boots, there's a range of slippers that will make frosty winter days a bit cosier.
Whatever your preference, here's our pick of the best slippers on the market.
1. Mahabis Classic
A masterpiece of comfort and practicality, the wool-lined Mahabis Classic has a sturdy trainer-like sole that allows it to quickly convert from a slipper into a shoe. Perfect if you need to pop out for a pint of milk.
The sole comes in a variety of colours, and there's a foam footbed for extra comfort.
Increasingly, Mahabis is the slipper of choice for the young and trendy – but the quality of design and build means it should appeal to men of all ages. A trusted Telegraph favourite.
2. Toms Berkeley
Since its foundation in 2006, Toms has grown into one of the most stylish shoe brands in the world.
With a faux shearling lining and wool upper, these sexily shabby slips promise to be more comfortable than your favourite spot on the sofa.
They're nice and warm but do show up small, so, if you have a wider food, you might opt for a half-size up.
3. Derek Rose Morgan
This classic 'mule' style slipper by Savile Row's master of nightwear Derek Rose features luxuriously soft calf leather.
They may not be the warmest, but they're incredibly elegant, and can be worn all year round - barefoot in summer; with a pair of thick socks in winter.
4. Isotoner Mens Moccasin
The traditional moccasin gets a modern update - they look almost like boat shoes - with this subtly sophisticated number. It features a "patented Pillowstep tufted insole" for underfoot cushioning.
5. UGG Ascot Moccasin slipper
A simple, no-frills, loafer-style slipper that begs to be bashed around the house, winter after winter. The water-resistant suede also means you won't have to keep getting the suede cleaner out every time you want to sit on the patio.
With soft wool lining, they're a comfy option. Plus, they have a rubber sole, so you can wear them outdoors. Available in the classic UGG colour of Chestnut or, if you want something more discreet, Espresso.
6. Sorel Falcon Ridge
Rugged and inviting, this suede and wool slipper by outdoorwear company Sorel includes a removable moulded insole for comfort, and a gum rubber sole, for rock-face transitioning (presumably).
7. Clarks 'Relaxed Style'
Doing what it says on the tin, the Clarks 'Relaxed Style' slippers have a laid-back look to them that make them perfect for lounging around the house. There are three different styles and materials - navy felt, brown leather or dark grey wool-like material.
8. Derek Rose Crawford
These were made for the man who likes to appear as well turned out in private as in public. They're made in England from suede and featuring an ultra-comfortable shearling lining.
9. Bedroom Athletics Marilyn
If you want to look like you're on a voyage north of The Wall in Game of Thrones, these are the arctic boots for you.
The super comfortable faux fur slippers are more than enough to warm the feet and ankles.
10. Sovereign Crown slipper
Yes, you read that right. These velvet loafer-style slippers, with a crown-stitched emblem, will set you back a whopping £245.
But if you're after some luxury in your life, or if only the smoothest velvet material is good enough for your feet, these are the slippers for you.
