Not ready for boots? Slipper flats are the perfect trans-seasonal shoe. Here are our faves on the high street

Hoorah! It’s Shoesday and that means we can chuck away any guilt of overspending at the weekend and start all over with a new shoe obsession.

Yes we know that makes no sense, but by our reckoning a new kinda spending is completely different, slash essential.

If you’re like the Now fashion team you’re not quite ready for boots and there’s a fashion condundrum going on: what do we pop on our feet now sandals and flip flops just aren’t acceptable?

Meet the slipper shoe! It is the obvious choice for a fashion crossover into a brand new season. Pair them with jeans and a basic tee or wear with summer dresses to give them a more wintery feel.

Don’t be scared of the dowdy name, there’s nothing sluggish about these bad boys! In fact they’re actually super swish and a lot more grown up than you’d think.

Celebs are loving them too and they have been stepping out in chic suede and velvet styles. Follow their lead and choose a pair with an added bit of regal embellishment or embroidery, or opt for a statement pattern.

Whatever motif or material you choose the shape to covet is a point! Slightly softened or sharply formed, there’s no roundness allowed around here. Sorry ballet pumps you can just rest in the wardrobe for now.

So get ready to put your feet up and scroll through our exceptionally desirable gallery, for the very best slipper shoes of the moment. No pipes have been smoked, just lots of web searching and the occasional virtual checkout. Enjoy!
