    Default House slippers -- Ugg alternative or just stick with Uggs

    I need new slippers. My uggs have served me well (moc style) for 3 years but really it is time. I wear them EVERY day -- often all day (I work at home). I have tried LL Bean Wicked slippers and they were good but started to smell after a while and not as comfy as Uggs. Any suggestions? I need arch support.

    TIA!

    Google Halflinger slippers - I've had the same pair for four years and they still look fantastic and the arch support is awesome!

    I like my Halfingers. Get the clogs and use them indoors and skip the women's AT indoor/outdoor slippers. The wool on those is thinner and I wore a hole with my big toe in about 4mos. The clogs have lasted me much longer.

    While I still use my uggs in really cold days, these are awesome for warmer weather.

    HAFLINGER GRIZZLY or Spirit. So comfy. For a cheaper option, try the LLB wicked good clog. Same cork sole as the half linger style.

    I like my acorn wool slippers. They have great support, and even removable foot beds, if you need orthotics (something I look for MIL).
