Slip-On Shoes Make Life Easier

by Sean Scott March 22, 2022

Some things might stress you out from time to time – but your shoes shouldn’t be one of those. Shoes need to be comfortable, easy to wear, and appealing. They should allow you to move freely and not stress over putting them on. Basically, they should make your life easier. So, if your current shoe collection is wearing you out, or if you feel you could use more comfort, then slip-on shoes might be just what you need.

What are slip-on shoes?

As the name suggests, slip-on shoes are shoes that can easily slide onto and off the foot. That’s because they don’t often have a lot of fasteners, laces, ties, buttons, or straps. In most cases, they don’t have any. Slip-on comes in different shapes and styles to match the vast preferences of people. They’re also super convenient, and feature flexible and breathable materials and extra cushioning that keeps the feet clean, dry, and comfortable for longer missions and larger tasks.

And make no mistake. Slip-on shoes are not an eyesore like some would like to imagine. Many associate slip-on with flip-flops or slippers, which are mostly meant for the house. While these are slip-on, they aren’t the only types. There’s a whole range of slip-on in the market, meant for all types of functions and tastes. In fact, there’s a whole collection of slip-on in sleek designs to match your daily outfit. Whether you are rushing to a meeting or a store, or just to the grocery, you can find something that works for you.

A few years back, slip-on shoes were not the best for walking, let alone running. They played second fiddle to runners and sneakers because they weren’t very cushiony on the heel. But since the introduction of well-cushioned slip-on, they have become a craze. Everyone wants to have a slip-on shoe. And why wouldn’t they, considering slip-on shoes pack a range of incredible benefits?

If you are yet to catch up with the trend, this article will let you in on the reasons slip-on shoes make life easier.

Easy to wear

One of the greatest selling points of slip-on shoes is the fact that they’re easy to wear. You don’t have to struggle with the laces or zips – just slide your legs in and you’re good to go. Slip-on shoes are a little less confining than a full sneaker.

They literally slip on and off, making them just a step away from walking out of the house, or diving into the pool. What’s more, slip-on shoes are ideal for all types of considerations, including bunions, narrow feet wide feet, plantar fasciitis, and even those who need extra arch support.


Slip-on shoes are lightweight and are easy to move around with. Like many people, you probably wear shoes for long hours during the day. The last thing you want is to put your feet into a cumbersome shoe. With every step you take, you’re lifting your feet and using energy. And unless the shoe is lightweight, you’ll end up tired.

Quality slip-on shoes are made with breathable materials that are not only lightweight but also allow your feet to breathe, giving you an easy walking experience. And with a rubber sole and memory foam footbed to provide maximum support and pressure relief, your shoes won’t get in the way of your day.


High-quality slip-on sneakers are a great way to blend function and fashion without sacrificing either. Investing in slip-on shoes means not having to carry an extra pair of comfortable shoes whenever you step outside the house. That’s because slip-on shoes look stunning as part of your wear, and are very comfortable. They also have cushioned insole, which protects you from repetitive load stress and sore feet. Slip-on shoes are a perfect idea when looking for a comfy shoe.


Women slip-on sneakers are stylish and trendy. They are perfect for all-weather but are mostly preferred during summer. Since they look great with just about everything, you can rock them with sundresses, workout leggings, jeans, shorts, and any casual wear. Slip-on shoes are easy shoes. 

You can wear them to work, school, outing, market, and even when just chilling around. And with a vast selection of slip-on styles to choose from, you won’t ever have to sacrifice aesthetics for convenience, or the other way around.

Double up as running shoes

While most slip-on shoes are made for light running or walking, some can be used for heavy-duty training sessions. Well-built slip-on shoes are a joy to run in. So, instead of wearing classic orthopedic or traditional trainers shoes all the time, you can do slip-on running shoes for a change.

At least, you won’t have to worry about tying too tight or too loose because slip-ons rarely have fasteners. Instead, they have a stretchy mesh upper, and a snug feel for a tight fit. Slip-on running shoes come in the same variety as regular running shoes. The only downside is you cannot adjust the snug; so it’s best to try out a variety of slip-on shoes before buying.

Are versatile

Slip-on shoes are not just easy on and off, they are also versatile. You can literally find a slip-on that matches your preference. Whether you are looking for walking shoes or ballet flats, you’re sure to find something that works for you. And as mentioned earlier, you can pair them with any outfit, including jeans, flowy skirts, or sundresses.

For example, loafers fit snuggly to the feet and look great with casual slacks, chino, or jeans. They also come in varying colors, designs, and materials to pick from – it all boils down to your preference and budget.

Wrap up

Slip-ons are supportive, comfortable, and easy to wear. They are what you need for your feet. And with vast stylish options to select from, you are sure to find something that works for your needs, style, and preferences.

From Trash to Treasure: Upcycling Materials in Shoe Design

Clothing brands are producing twice the amount of clothes today than they did in 2000. About 15% of raw materials used during production are wasted because of cutouts, and 60% of garments are discarded just a few years after production. On top of that, the energy-intensive production methods, high water and chemical use, and lengthy supply chains intensify the ecological impact of the fashion industry.

Find Your Perfect Size

We want to help make sure that your new shoes have the best fit possible.  

We have created a separate fit for men and women to provide the ultimate foot hugging comfort.  Our sockliner and upper materials will naturally mold to your foot and stretch out after a short period of time, so do allow for this when trying our shoes on initially.


 In general, our shoes are running closer to an everyday shoe fit vs. an athletic shoe fit and can be worn with or without socks - but the socks have to be eye catching for best results.


Any variances from this chart will be noted on each individual product page.
