What to Consider When Shopping for Slip-on Shoes:

Shopping for a slip-on should be a relatively easy task as long as you keep a couple of things in mind. First, you'll want to ensure that your shoes are comfortable. The point of a slip-on is to make life a little more convenient, so it would be counterproductive for your slip-on to not be comfy. We personally like shoes that have a padded midsole or maybe even some fuzzy material for extra measure, but as long they are comfortable for you is all that matters.

You'll also want to make sure your shoes are breathable. Excess sweat can be just as uncomfortable as wearing a rather hard shoe, so make sure there's enough air that's getting to your feet. Wool and cotton make for good material in this regard. Lastly, you'll also want to keep your budget in mind in terms of what you are willing to spend. With that said, let's get into these selections.

The Best Slip-On Sneakers for Men, at a Glance:

1. Vans Slip-On Pro

Editor's Choice

  • Pros: Comfortable, sleek look, affordable
  • Cons: Could run narrow according to users
  • Size(s): 6.5-13
  • Material: Suede, Canvas

This $50 shoe is an absolute classic by every stretch of the word. Vans introduced it in 1977 and it has been popular ever since. The shoe’s most redeeming quality is its versatility when it comes to colorways. Of course, we’ve seen classic colors, like the checkerboard print joints. But, with the laces out, you can also customize pretty much any colorway with dope art. It’s a blank canvas.


2. Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Slip-On

Best Black Sneaker

  • Pros: Comfortable, durable, versatile
  • Cons: Runs large according to users
  • Size(s): 6.5-13
  • Material: Suede, leather, cotton

This isn’t quite the classic that the original Chuck Taylor Highs and Lows are, but it’s absolutely the next best thing. This $55 shoe was made to be a beater. They’re tough — you can wear them through pretty much anything. You want to skate in them? Fine. Lift weights? Be my guest. Just choose an activity and these shoes fit the bill.


3. Sperry Men's Authentic Leather Boat Shoe

Best Leather Sneaker

  • Pros: Nice design, durable, versatile, affordable
  • Cons: Runs small according to users
  • Size(s): 8-13
  • Material: Leather

If you’re looking for class, these are definitely it. Sometimes, dress shoes are straight-up uncomfortable. But this Sperry gives you the best of both worlds. It’s laid back and chill. You can wear it with shorts and a polo or a nice suit if you get the color blocking right. It comes in a variety of different colors and are only $110 too, so there’s no limit to the combinations you can hit in these beauties.


4. Sperry Men’s Striper II

Best Casual Sneaker

  • Pros: Lightweight, good traction, affordable
  • Cons: Runs big according to users
  • Size(s): 7-15
  • Material: Twill

Now, let’s say you’re not really interested in looking fancy. You want to look chill, but maybe not too chill. These are definitely the shoes for you. It’s almost just like the Vans Slip-On above. It’s upper isn’t as sturdy because it’s not made for skating, but it’s definitely a more comfy fit on your feet. Not bad for $70.


5. Vans Customs Cornstalk Slip-On

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.02.33 PM

Most Versatile Sneaker

  • Pros: Nice appearance, suitable for wide feet, affordable
  • Cons: Runs big/small according to users
  • Size(s): 7-18
  • Material: Leather, Suede

This is maybe the best non-classic colorway of the Slip-On pro. The leather on this $80 shoe is tough — it’s meant to take a beating and it also ages better because of the leather material the shoe is made out of. It still has the same rubber and waffle outside a regular Vans shoe has. The leather just gives it a different flavor.


6. Stefan Janoski SB Zoom

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.09.12 PM

  • Pros: Stylish, durable, versatile
  • Cons: Runs big/small according to users
  • Size(s): 7-12.5
  • Material: Leather

When people think of Nike SB, they typically think about Dunks or Blazers. And both of those are great shoes absolutely worthy of admiration. But $65 the Stefan Janoski line is absolutely slept on and the laceless Janoski SB Zoom is incredibly comfortable. It’s a skater, too, so you know it can take a good beating. You’ll be wearing them for years.


7. Toms Classics

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.18.03 PM

  • Pros: Good support, nice look, affordable
  • Cons: Runs big according to users
  • Size(s): 7-14
  • Material: Canvas

These shoes are borderline slippers; they’re so comfortable. When you look at them, initially, they don’t seem like they’d be that great to wear. It just looks like a bunch of cloth wrapped up around your foot. But, listen, these shoes are like clouds to walk on. They grip your foot just tight enough and the cushioning in the shoe feels like a cloud. It’s great. Oh, and they are only $50.


8. Toms Heritage Canvas Men’s Baja Slip-On

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.21.40 PM

  • Pros: Good support, nice look, affordable
  • Cons: Runs small according to users
  • Size(s): 7-13
  • Material: Fabric

This shoe is much more of a conventional, casual slip-on fit than the classics. It’s the perfect shoe to wear in the summer when you’re going on that beach trip or you’re taking a stroll to the park. This $55 casual slip-on is extremely comfortable and gives your foot a ton of room to breathe which is essential in hot weather.


9. Crocs Classic Clog

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.28.55 PM

  • Pros: Supportive, comfy, affordable
  • Cons: Runs wide according to some users
  • Size(s): 6-12
  • Material: Croslite

Now, Crocs aren’t exactly sneakers. But you can definitely rock them in the same way you’d rock some classic kicks. They’re not quite slippers, but they’re not quite tennis shoes either. They come in a ton of different colors, and the different charms you can put on them make them extremely customizable. And, most importantly, they make you feel like you’re walking on a cloud, and are only $50.


10. Puma Men's Racer Slip-On

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.35.39 PM

  • Pros: Lightweight, durable, affordable
  • Cons: Runs narrow according to some users
  • Size(s): 7.5-13
  • Material: Mesh

The Bari is a $50 shoe that was clearly inspired by the look that Vans has. It has that simple, yet stylish look that a Vans shoe has, and when you remove laces from the equation, it makes for a perfect summer shoe. In this case, though, the canvas upper feels a bit sleeker and the opening might be a bit more flexible.


11. Sanuk Chiba

slipons 0007 screen shot 2020 09 03 at 1 57 59 pm

  • Pros: Durable, nice look, versatile, comfortable
  • Cons: Runs big/small according to some users
  • Size(s): 6-18
  • Material: Cotton Canvas

This shoe might as well be a slipper. If you squint your eyes, it might start to look like the joints Deebo was wearing on Friday. That only adds to the greatness of it, though. These $65 shoes are incredibly durable because of their canvas upper and mold to the shape of your feet as time passes along, which means the longer you have them, the better the fit.


12. Soludos Smoking Slipper

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.43.38 PM

  • Pros: Comfortable fit, stylish, versatile
  • Cons: Runs bigger according to some users
  • Size(s): 8-13
  • Material: Organic Woven Cotton

Like the classic Toms, this shoe has a much more laid back vibe. It’s not quite a slipper, but you can tell that it isn’t really related to a tennis shoe. For $85, it looks like something you’d wear on an island resort, which are the same vibes you’d want for the summertime. Its cotton upper feels incredible on foot, and it’s an extremely light shoe, so sweat and heat won’t be a problem.


13. adidas Lite Racer Adapt

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.47.29 PM

  • Pros: Multiple colors, versatile, affordable price
  • Cons: Runs big/small according to some users
  • Size(s): 7-14
  • Material: Mesh Upper

This $42 shoe is an extremely comfortable wear with a mesh upper and a rubber outsole holding everything together. They’re meant to take a beating but were also built for casual wear. The sock liner built into the shoe ensures comfort both on and off of the board while wearing them.


14. adidas Cloudfoam Lite Racer

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.52.26 PM

  • Pros: Supportive, has good traction, affordable
  • Cons: Not as durable as other models
  • Size(s): 6.5-14
  • Material: Textile

The Cloudfoam Lite racer was made for comfort while running. Its mesh upper provides flexibility within the shoe without wearing down the upper after multiple wears. The midsole comes with a foam material that makes it feel like you’re running on a cloud and the toe box gives you plenty of room for wiggle in these. It’s only $70 and, if you’re interested in running at all, you know that’s a steal.


15. Nike SB Charge Slip

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 4.59.08 PM

  • Pros: Comfortable, nice look, durable
  • Cons: Runs big/small according to others
  • Size(s): 6-15
  • Material: Canvas

This $121 Charge Slip is a skater like many of the shoes we mentioned before. Like the Vans slip-on, it comes in different patterns instead of just your casual black or white colorway. The print on the shoe is what immediately catches your eye. Once you put it on and break it in you won’t want to stop wearing it.


16. UGG Classic Suede Slip-On

slipons 0003 uggs cite nordstrom

  • Pros: Comfortable, weather resistant, supportive
  • Cons: Runs too wide according to others
  • Size(s): 7-15
  • Material: Suede

Sure, people don’t think of UGGS when they think of slip-on shoes, but they absolutely should. It’s probably the first thing they should think of. They’re known mainly for their boots, but their slippers and slip-on shoes have the ultimate comfort factor. That’s what makes the Chester Twinsole so incredible—it’s just so darn comfortable. Plus, it's only $100


17. Seavees Hawthorne Slip-On Standard

Screen Shot 2023 06 02 at 5.06.02 PM

  • Pros: Well made, versatile, supportive
  • Cons: Runs too narrow according to others
  • Size(s): 7-16
  • Material: Suede

Most things associated with Seavees are just always incredibly cool—mostly because of the beach vibes it always gives off. This $110 shoe is no different. It gives off those same beach vibes, but can also be uniquely used as a skater if you want it to be. You can also just give it a casual wear during a night on the town if you’d like. You can put on some dope socks with shorts or just roll up your pants and wear them with ankle socks or no socks at all. It’s up to you.


18. PF Flyers Center Lo Slip On

P.F. Flyers

  • Pros: Nice style, supportive, durable
  • Cons: Runs too big/smaller according to others
  • Size(s): 7-13
  • Material: Dunk Canvas

P.F. Flyers isn’t known for its work with low tops or laceless shoes, but this one is an outlier for a good reason. This $60 shoe is perfect for the outdoors with its canvas upper and the tread in its midsole. They’ll last you for a good while and are durable so that you can get active in them.


19. Nike Vapormax Acronym Moc

  • Pros: Very comfortable, unique look
  • Cons: Can be hard to find
  • Size(s): 7-12
  • Material: Rubber

When this shoe first dropped, it was slept on. It ran in contrast with Nike’s general Air Max style. I mean, a $225 Air Max sneaker with no laces is generally unheard of. But this shoe, for as slept on as it was, is an absolute banger and something you can style in several ways. Its VaporMax sole gives the wearer a perfect mix of performance and comfort, and you can almost certainly find it below retail right now.


20. PUMA Softride Enzo Slip-On

  • Material: Calfskin Leather

If you are in need of a pair of slip-ons that will be able to virtually last you through every season, look no further than Givenchy's City Sport Sneakers which are made with the finest calfskin leather, and well worth the $675 investment.


22. Kizik Athens Sneaker

  • Pros: Easy to put on, good quality, supportive
  • Cons: Arch support could be better according to some users

Kizik has made an easy shoe even easier with their Athens model which is a breeze to slip on, and super comfortable with its roomy toe box, breathable knit upper, and rabbit foam outsole. Only $130 as well. Not bad.
