Best slippers for women – closed back: The Giesswein Vent Lodge slipper is an “extraordinary orthopedic experience” as described by a happy Zappos customer. A natural boiled wool upper keeps toes comfortably warm in winter but is breathable so you don’t have to worry about overheating even in warmer weather.
Slippers with arch support
If you need men’s or women’s slippers with arch support look no further – the best part about these Austrian-made slippers is their heavy-duty removable footbed. Keep it for low to moderately high arches, remove and add your own orthotics for high arches. (The removable midsole also means they’re machine washable!) A non-slip waterproof outsole allows for a quick trip to the mailbox or a ride of the block with the dog. Please note: this slipper size small. I recommend ordering a size or two of your normal European size. Available in European sizes 36-48 and seven colors for $ 134 at Zappos.
