It’s 2021, and the slipper is a staple. When we don’t get dressed to go outside, we get dressed to at least get out of the bedroom, and slides or slippers that are also functional or sturdy enough to support us while working from home, are essential. It’s funny to think that in 2019 I wasn’t even worried about owning a pair of slippers. Usually I was at work anyway, or maybe visiting friends on the weekend. And when I was home, that was the best time to slide around the apartment in my cozy, fluffy socks!
But having a slipper that you can rely on almost every day has become a source of comfort during the pandemic. When I wear my slippers, I both make a stylistic statement and face the reality of my situation: My daily routine currently requires neither a strappy stiletto nor high-heeled leather boots. I happen to be in the same boat as many of my POPSUGAR editors, who are all excited about what they consider to be the most successful slipper in 2021.
