How do I recognise a good pair of slippers?

Discover how to find the best slippers for the whole family in this blog post! From cosy new wool slippers for children to comfy slippers for adults - find out how to combine unparalleled warmth, comfort and sustainability.

After a hard day's work, you long for relaxation, and comfortable slippers are an absolute must! But what does a good pair of slippers actually depend on? Is it the material or the shape?

At GIESSWEIN, we offer a wide range of high-quality slipper models. Our first-class fabrics and careful workmanship guarantee long-lasting comfort! Whether you prefer our woollen slippers, cotton slippers or warm slippers - at GIESSWEIN you'll find the perfect slipper for every season and every occasion!
We also have something for the little ones: Our children's slippers combine comfort with playful appliqués. Popular models such as the Trabening with unicorn design or the Arnstadt with football motifs are very popular! However, before you start buying your slippers, you should consider a few important aspects.



The quality of the slippers should be the top priority. High-quality workmanship, as can be found in GIESSWEIN slippers, guarantees robust slippers that you will enjoy for a long time. The quality goes hand in hand with the type of material.



The upper material and the inner lining play a decisive role in the comfort and durability of slippers. Synthetic materials should be avoided at all costs! It is important that the skin on your feet can breathe, and this works best with natural fibres. Breathable materials include wool, cotton, leather and lambskin. These natural materials keep your feet dry and warm without overheating, as moisture is transported from the inner lining to the outside. This regulates the temperature inside the slippers. Our pleasantly soft slippers made of wool and cotton can even be washed in the washing machine!



When choosing slippers, the right size is crucial for comfort and support. Make sure that the slippers are not too tight or too loose. They should offer enough room for your toes without pinching, while providing a secure hold on your foot so you don't slip out. It is advisable to try on the slippers in the afternoon or evening, as your feet can swell slightly during the day. If you are wavering between two sizes, choose the larger one to ensure that your feet have enough room. Also remember that slippers made from natural materials such as wool can mould slightly over time and adapt to the shape of your feet.



Our comfort slippers are particularly beneficial if you walk a lot at home, as they have optimally cushioned inner and outer soles. The lambskin slippers are extra soft and cosy, but at the same time robust, as their soles are made of durable leather. The GIESSWEIN slippers extend beyond the ankle and are therefore extra cosy and warm in the cold season.
