The humble slipper has proven to be the defining shoe of the past year. While you’ve likely had to search for a reason to wear your favorite sneakers, loafers, or sandals during the pandemic, you’ve never needed a reason to accept the comforting embrace of cozy house shoes. And all that padding around the house has probably added up to some considerable wear and tear on your home footwear. If you’re looking to upgrade, or just expand your house shoe rotation, the North Face Thermoball slippers are an extremely practical favorite, and thanks to a big sale at Nordstrom, a slick Buffalo plaid colorway of the Thermoball is a whopping 40% off right now.
The Thermoball is basically what would happen if you tried to upcycle a puffy North Face winter coat into a shoe. The resulting shoe is extremely warm and comfortable. But it also has a high-traction rubber outsole. As we’ve previously noted, “that means it can handle a slosh around a campsite just as well as a quick shuffle around the corner to pick up a coffee.” But even if you never set foot outside of the house in them, there’s something fun and defiant about wearing a puffer coat on your feet.
