What Sole is Best for Slippers?

Rubber sole slippers are a great choice for providing stability and support throughout the house. All  slippers vary in style and material but ensuring you have the right base for you is important. Rubber soles can provide the user with a stable grip when they need it most, meaning your feet feel secure on the ground. The last thing you want is a pair of slippers which cause tumbles and falls because they are slippy and provide no grip. Rubber soled slippers on the other hand, are made using thick and durable rubber. Often you will see them indented or have grooves which is what makes them supportive slippers against slippery surfaces. 

Our range of  men’s slippers and  women’s slippers all include our patented natural rubber soles. This means they are slip-resistant and provide the wearer with a firm foothold.

EVA vs Rubber Soles for Slippers

Choosing the right type of soles for your slippers can feel like a trial and error process. Will they offer support? Which will be the most comfortable? Giesswein uses EVA soles and rubber soles in our footwear. But which is best?  

Rubber Soles 

Rubber sole slippers are the most common type of bases you will find in a house shoe. They boast a range of benefits which makes them both practical and comfortable to the user, such as taking the impact from every step. Comfort and support is ultimately the overall goal of any footwear, which is why all of our slippers feature rubber soles. An advantage towards rubber soles is that they are often waterproof or water resistant. Meaning you can enjoy taking a stroll in the garden with ease. Rubber soles can also be suitable alongside arch support insoles as the sturdiness of the base provides good stability without sacrificing comfort.  Arch support slippers help to prevent discomfort to the user who often would have low arches. Making sure your feet are supported correctly is important, as it can affect your posture.        

EVA Soles

EVA soles are another type of base to footwear but are not as common as rubber soled slippers. This isn’t to say EVA soles are unsuitable for slippers because they have incredible benefits of their own. These soles are traditionally more lightweight and flexible than rubber soles, but still have the same anti-grip features. What makes them more suitable for an outdoor shoe rather than a slipper is the shock absorption feature.

How to Wash Rubber Soled Slippers

To some, knowing  how to wash your rubber soled slippers may be a necessity, especially in the warmer months when sweaty feet can arise. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Our rubber sole slippers are all made using soft virgin wool. This type of wool means your feet can breathe easily and can stay dry during the warmer weather. This is thanks to the moisture wicking properties within the fibres. What this means is excess moisture is removed from your skin and transferred to the top layer of the fabric where it can evaporate. Another benefit to virgin wool, in rubber sole slippers, is that it is a naturally antibacterial material. It is a great feature to have especially in summer slippers where it can traditionally be a hot zone for bacteria to form. Due to the uneven structure of the fibres, bacteria finds it hard to grip onto, which means it is unable to multiply. 

If you do find you want to freshen up your rubber sole slippers, you can easily pop them into the washing machine and leave to air dry.
