There is nothing more discouraging than to buy a brand new pair of slippers and realize once you get home, they are a disturbance to all around you.
If you have never had this experience you may think I’m exaggerating, but to those of you that have, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Most would say that hardwood or tile floors are usually the number one culprit, but are they really?
I mean, yes they may not be ideal as far as keeping the noise down, but they are excellent flooring choices in general and certainly not something you want to change out, just to avoid a little (or a lot) of noise, do you? I didn’t think so.
Thus, there must be a better solution to this annoying little problem, am I right? Yes, there is.
Instead of looking for the next area rug to lay down on those expensive floors, why not find a slipper that will still provide everything you want in the common shoe, but will also satisfy your downstairs neighbors?

Dearfoams QuiltedTerry Clog Slipper
These Dearfoams QuiltedTerry Clog Slippers are not only cute but are awesome for keeping quiet on those hardwood floors. The soles are made with a synthetic rubber sole.
They are slip-on, making them a cinch to get on and off, and are virtually silent, allowing you to slip out of your sleeping baby’s room or down the hall for a midnight snack without waking anyone else up. With German roots, a brand like Haflinger isn’t to be messed with.
Lastly, they have a cushioned insole with memory foam, making them extremely comfortable.
UGG Women’s Ansley Moccasin
My personal favorite on the list, the Ansley Moccasins by Ugg are the cream of the crop when it comes to overall look, style, and comfort. They have the classic Ugg name, meaning you’re getting a quality slipper, but also live up to that name in many ways.
The authentic wool is super warm, while the suede upper is water-resistant. The rubber sole is also great for walking around on those cold hardwoods on a winter morning or running out to the mailbox on a spring day.
Snoozies Women’s Classic
Snoozies are an excellent option if you want a cute and sassy pair of slippers (have fun choosing from over 25 different appliques (!)), yet comfortable and warm as well. Some would describe them more as a slipper-sock than anything, as they fit snug around the shape of your foot.
The cushioned sole is super soft, not only making your feet happy after a long and tiring day but is great for staying quiet while walking around your floors as well. And just because the sole is soft, don’t let that fool you- they are skid-resistant as well!
UGG Men’s Ascot Slipper
Uggs are notorious for being well-made, and these Ascot Slippers are no exception.
Very popular among men of all ages, the Ascot slipper is not only their best-selling men’s slipper but the perfect choice for staying quiet while roaming around on those hardwood floors.
And the molded rubber sole is also great for wearing both indoors as well as outdoors. They are made of suede, lined with pure wool, and are available in a variety of colors.
If you are looking for the happy medium between comfort and style AND want a noiseless slipper, check these out!
Baffin Unisex Cush Insulated Slipper
The Baffin Cush Insulated Slipper is not only quiet on your floors but extremely versatile as well. Known as the “sleeping bag for your feet”, Baffins are just that- the super-soft, plushy, over-the-top comfortable slipper. The slip-resistant sole helps you stay in place, no matter the surface, and the drawstring helps keep the slipper in your desired position.
Great for traveling and outdoor activities like camping, the Baffin Cush Insulated Slipper can curl up into a convenient traveling companion.
Glerups Unisex Model Gr Slipper
These all felt Glerups are an excellent choice if you are looking for a great mix of warmth and functionality. In other words, they are excellent slippers that can be worn indoors or even outdoors as a shoe throughout the day.
They have a rubber sole which gives you a great grip on that tile or hardwood, yet is very quiet on those surfaces as well, keeping your downstairs neighbors happy.
Many people rave about the fact that they definitely keep you warm, but are not too warm where you need to worry about sweating yourself out of them. They are the perfect in-between slipper.
Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Authentic Original 2-Eye Boat Shoes

They are a classic boat shoe style, that not only are super comfortable and very chic but will keep your feet quiet on those beautiful floors!
