Discover the most unique designer slippers for men from luxury brands to add elegance and stylishness to any moment of the day, including when you’re relaxing at home alone in your pajamas.
In Search of Men’s Luxury Slippers
Men’s slippers from luxury brands are definitely an indulgence.
Starting at about $200 and rising to more than $1,700 for the highest-of-the-high end luxury brands, designer slippers for men aren’t cheap. (If you’re looking for more affordable options, see this guide to the coziest outdoor slippers for men.)
Sure they provide practical benefits like warmth and comfort, but designer slippers offer an opportunity to enjoy a cozy knockaround piece that captures some of the glamour of a high-end luxury brand.
Luxury men’s slippers are also made exceptionally well, demonstrating an elevated level of craftsmanship and design. The best brands use high-quality materials, such as leather or wool derived from excellent sources. The construction of each slipper gives it durability and makes them look and feel wonderful (as they ought to, for these prices).
The Most Exclusive Luxury Slippers for Men
- Christian Louboutin — One of the most famous shoe designers in the world, Christian Louboutin’s red-soled shoes grace celebrities worldwide. Look to Christian Louboutin for lux slippers adorned with premium materials like leather, velvet and shearling for around $750-$1,000. Shop Christian Loubotin designer slippers for men via Neimann Marcus, Harrod’s, Matches Fashion and Mr. Porter.
- Gucci — As one of the most popular and influential luxury brands in the world, Gucci is worth checking out for products beyond its iconic bags. Gucci’s designer slippers for men have a variety of elegant qualities, including the Italian brand’s distinctive horsebit detail and the use of fine leather. The prices range from several hundred dollars to over $2,600 for a pair of fur-lined crocodile slippers.
- Manolo Blahnik — Although the brilliant shoe designer is best known for gorgeous heels for women, the London-based Manolo Blahnik brand also produces finely crafted men’s slippers. Priced at roughly $700 to $800, these slip-on shoes are made of leather and suede, and they contain goat-skin lining. They also feature beautiful details, such as broguing or fringe.
- Tom Ford — After serving as the wildly successful creative director of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford started his own luxury brand. The brand’s designer slippers for men range in price from $1,550 to $1,790 and have elegant features, such as a shearling lining and velvet with a zebra pattern. (Tom Ford is also one of my favorite destinations for expensive luxury ties for men and swanky designer men’s sunglasses.)
- Frette — High-end loungewear from Frette is what you could wear in the spa of a five-star hotel, and each type of slipper the brand offers epitomizes luxurious comfort. Made in Italy, the men’s slippers may come with cashmere lining and an upper component made of soft suede; one type of slipper is also embroidered in cotton velvet. The prices range from $350 to $475.
- Balmain — This glamorous French fashion house, which was revitalized in the past decade under a remarkably young creative director, is always worth following to see what it will produce next. Comfortable slip-on shoes from Balmain include mule slides made of quilted lambskin leather. Available for several hundred dollars from Bergdorf Goodman, they have a thick platform that elevates you comfortably.

Beyond boots, the exclusive brand excels at a wide range of footwear and sells some of the most expensive shoes for men. John Lobb’s luxury slippers for men are crafted in cashmere suede or lamb’s leather. These are available at around $700.
- Kingsman — Mr. Porter, the world-famous retailer for luxury menswear, has launched multiple collections of clothing inspired by the impeccable outfits in the “Kingsman” franchise.

These items, which range from $325 to $745, all have black leather soles, and their uppers are made of velvet or cashmere.
