A podiatrist recommends the best slippers for arch support and plantar fasciitis.

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis or collapsed arches, you no doubt understand the importance of a shoe with good arch support. And why should slippers be an exception? If you're wearing them while you walk around the house or run errands, you need a comfortable pair. That's why we've rounded up the best slippers with arch support, as recommended by a podiatrist and plenty of reviewers. But first, why is it important to have arch support in a slipper?

"Slippers with arch support are essential to maintain the foot's plantar fascia," Dr. Yolanda Ragland tells Woman's Day. Ragland is a podiatrist, forefoot reconstructive surgeon, and founder of Fix Your Feet. "Without proper arch supports, the arch can collapse, causing pressure and stress to the plantar fascia leading to micro-tears in the structure and resulting in a painful condition referred to as plantar fasciitis or commonly known as heel spurs or heel pain."

These slippers will keep your feet comfortable whether you have plantar fasciitis, bunions, or simply want a pair of slippers that offers support at the beginning and end of your day. You prioritize comfort when it comes to running or work shoes, so why not slippers? Keep reading to see our recommendations for the best slippers to support your arches.

"Vionic slippers have styles for a garden variety of heel-pain sufferers," says Ragland. "Their Relax Slipper is fabricated with plush terry and is easy to slide in and out of, and open-toed for breathability."

Another Vionic slipper Dr. Ragland recommends is the Jackie. She notes that it's especially good for people suffering from neuropathy. "This slipper, in addition to its built-in arch support and inclined heel, is a moccasin design to cover and protect the toes and heels from sharp objects that someone might inadvertently step on," she says.

These slippers come in at less than $30, making them a cost-effective pick for slippers with arch support. One reviewer described them as "Lovely, cushiony, supportive to arches and heels."

These slippers come in a variety of fun colors and patterns. Even better, they have plenty of arch support, according to reviewers. One customer shared, "I have plantar fasciitis, so arch support was a big must when I was looking for house shoes. I'd previously been wearing crocs around the house, and putting these on the first time felt like taking a deep breath for my feet."

These slippers are specially designed with supportive orthotic insoles that keep the foot aligned and the arches supported. They also have a soft faux fur lining to keep your feet cozy even on those cold winter days.

This open-toed slipper is made from supportive foam that cushions your foot. Plus, according to reviewers, these slippers are comfortable for those with plantar fasciitis. And they're stylish and durable enough that you might even be tempted to wear them out and about.

These wooly shoes get top marks from reviewers, who love the cozy but durable material and supportive heel of these slippers. One reviewer shared, "If you are looking for sturdy, firm arch support, this may be the slipper for you."

These moccasin-style slippers have plenty of heel lift, which Dr. Ragland emphasizes is important when choosing footwear. They come in medium and wide sizes and feature a super-soft lining. One reviewer also shared that these slippers come with "extra insoles and arch supports that allow you to refine their fit."

Love or hate the aesthetic of Crocs, there's no denying that these are comfortable. The fluffy lining makes these feel more like slippers than regular shoes, and one reviewer stated, "The clogs give me a lot of arch support while wearing them as slippers in the house. They are also very warm."

✔️ Heel support: "It may be difficult to find slippers that are truly arch-supportive, however, a slipper with a slightly raised or inclined heel is just as beneficial," says Dr. Ragland.

✔️ Materials: If you frequently have cold feet, look for warm materials like synthetic fur. If your feet are often overheated or sweaty, then look for moisture-wicking or breathable slippers made with materials like foam. Additionally, if you also have bunions, you'll want to look for slippers with a wide and accommodating toe box.

✔️ Outdoor readiness: If you anticipate wearing your slippers outdoors — such as on your deck, or in the driveway when you go out to get the mail — look for slippers that can handle this. Something made with rubber would likely be a good choice.
