Watch out Hugh Hefner, Palm Beach doyennes, and cigar-smoking British lords—we've got our eye on your footwear. That's right, the smoking slipper is officially the hot new shoe of the season. Indeed, we've spotted 'em against the red-lacquered walls of Christian Louboutin boutiques, on the Alexander McQueen runway, and snuggling the toes of front-row fixtures like Lauren Santo Domingo, Giovanna Battaglia, and Leandra Medine this past Fashion Week. These slip-ons pack a bigger style punch than other heelless options, and given their structure and plush material, their comfort one-ups the competition, too. Equal parts leisure and luxury, this perfect fall flat can be classic, quirky, or edgy—and we've curated a list of the best options to get you in on the trend. Studded bad-boys, cheeky velvet cats, or woven zig-zags...whatever you're feeling, the trek from your bed to your office just got a whole lot easier.
