Best Slip-On Shoes for Moms

Parents / Brian Kopinski

Whether they're for pairing with your favorite summer dress or running errands (or after your kids), slip-on shoes are one more little way we like to save time and effort. The best pairs should slide onto your feet seamlessly and feel as comfortable as your favorite pair of lace-up sneakers. With styles like loafers, heels, and booties—slip-on shoes are available in the latest trends you see on celebrities, as well as every other kind to fit your own style. 

In order to find the best slip-on shoes for moms, we studied the design and features of the most popular brands from our favorite retailers. When reviewing products, we considered materials, fit, flexibility, comfort, size range, design, cleaning instructions, and overall value. Moreover, we reviewed guidance from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) on foot care and footwear selection tips. From Vans to Steve Madden, we’ve included a variety of slip-on shoes to suit your needs.
