Waking up on a chilly morning and slipping on a pair of extra plush, oh-so-warm, fur-lined slippers to wear while you’re sipping on coffee on the couch, cracking open your favorite book is peak morning routine goals.
But, what good are these slippers really if after a couple hours of walking and lounging around, your feet—and even your knees and back—can feel the lack of support from their maybe-too-soft soles? The answer is not very good at all, unless you opt for a super-supportive pair that also have all the cozy, keep-you-warm qualities you’re after.
“When I discuss with patients about proper slippers, I always discuss slippers that are comfortable and supportive,” says podiatrist Brad Schaeffer. “But, if they are hurting you in the long run because there is no support, then you are doing more harm than good.” (We knew it.)
We found just the podiatrist-approved pair from QVC (and they’re on sale right now!): the Vionic Cable Knit Faux Fur Slippers. They feature a stylish cable-knit design along with plush, faux-fur trim and lining for maximum comfortability. Plus, the podiatrist-designed orthotic footbed hugs your arches for all the support your feet could need. See? You never have to sacrifice healthy, feel-good feet for a pair of your favorite cozy slippers again.
Not to mention, double board-certified podiatrist Chanel J Perks previously told Well+Good, “The Vionic brand was developed by a podiatrist and approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association.” So, before we give any further proof these should be your next pair of at-home, arch support slippers, the podiatrists have already spoken.

And if you’re accustomed to wearing thick, chunky socks with your everyday slippers, maybe try sizing up slightly.

(Your old pair or slippers could literally never.)
While these arch support slippers are obviously meant to be worn around your house, they’re stylish enough to throw on with leggings and a matching fleece when you’re heading out for a quick trip to the grocery store or about to hit an afternoon yoga session. Just prepare for everyone to ask you where you found your new wear-everywhere cozy shoes.
