Keep little toes warm for winter (and beyond) with our edit of the kids’ best slippers.
During these colder months, snuggling up with a pair of slippers, some kids’ pyjamas and a cosy kids’ dressing gown 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. If you have wooden floors, look out for kids’ slippers with a rubber sole to help prevent any slips. This will also help protect little toes when accidentally stepping on things that could be painful, like Lego.
For older children, they’re more likely to want to choose a fun pair that suits them and that’ll be easy to throw on while in the house. Comfy slipper boots are an ideal option for those who need less support.

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.
