Are Greys slippers really worth it? The answer might surprise you. Here’s our honest, unbiased review.
Buying a pair of house shoes is one of the easiest ways to improve your quality of life throughout the fall and winter.
For one, you can change out of your wet or dirty boots as soon as you get in the door. Then, you can bundle your feet up and stay comfortable all day long, no matter where you are around the house.
The Greys slippers from Huckberry take the house shoe even further, with a rugged design that’s great for indoor wear, and capable of quick outdoor trips too. After trying out a pair for myself, I’m here to give you the pros and cons of this internet-famous brand of slippers.
About Greys Slippers
Greys is one of Huckberry’s in-house brands, and their “sole” offering is a lineup of indoor/outdoor slippers in multiple styles.
Since they’re coming directly from Huckberry, you get a lot of bang for your buck, with detail-oriented design and top-quality materials.
I’ve been wearing my pair of Greys slippers throughout the fall and winter of this past year, and they’ve been a really great addition to my wardrobe.
They’re a wool blend slipper, which gives a good amount of moisture-wicking and odor-reducing qualities. The wool makes them extra cozy on cold days too since this material does a good job of regulating temperature.
The overall design of these slippers is much more like a shoe than a standard house slipper.
Their rubber soles are extra grippy and quite thick, and they have a nice stub-proof toe box built in as well.
As is the case with camp mocks, these slippers have a hard sole. Thus, you won’t feel guilty wearing these out of the house for quick errands. I think they’d be really good for camping as well.
I like all the colors available for the Greys slippers. They’re pretty neutral and go with just about anything.
I find their pull tab here to be pretty helpful, but your mileage may vary.
These Greys slippers fit kind of like a Chelsea boot, so if you like that style of shoe, you’ll probably really enjoy these as well. In fact, you can get these in a “boot,” rather than a “slipper,” style if you’d like.
One caveat here when you’re thinking of buying a pair of Greys slippers: These run very large. I took a size 7 (my size in dress shoes), and they fit really loosely.
I’d recommend sizing down from your normal dress shoe size if you want a snug fit or sizing down from your sneaker size for a slightly roomier fit.
So overall, these slippers are really great for spring, fall, and winter; they’re probably too heavy to wear comfortably in summer in most places. (However, when camping they might still be good for chilly summer nights).
While they’re expensive, the quality and construction are really on point, and they feel like they’re going to last for a very long time.
Here’s my take on the plus sides of Greys slippers:
- Really comfortable — the wool’s not scratchy at all
- Grippy rubber outsoles are great for any surface
- Colors are all great; neutral, fit with anything
- Cozy and warm in the winter
And here’s where I think the Greys slippers could be improved:
- Sizes tend to run really large, and they stretch out with wear.
- Pretty pricey for a house shoe
- You may not like the pull tab
