Keep little toes toasty with our edit of the kids' best slippers, whatever the weather.

Snuggling up with a pair of slippers, some kids' pyjamas (opens in new tab) and a cosy kids' dressing gown (opens in new tab) is the perfect way for youngsters to hit sleep mode after a busy day of play. For active younger kids, it's important to choose a pair of slippers that'll suit their needs. A Velcro strap will be more secure and will help to keep them more steady on their feet. Older children are more likely to want to choose a fun pair that suits their style and that'll be easy to throw on as soon as they get in the house.

Which kids' slippers will last the longest?

Kids tend to grow out of everything pretty quickly so affordable slipper options are perfect. The thing is, though, they will most likely be worn daily so you'll want to buy a pair that they'll get the use out of. Look to longer-lasting materials such as real leather as these tend to last longer. If they're not worn that much outside (unless they have a rubber grip sole) they should last until kids' feet grow out of them.
