4 Benefits of Breathable Slippers

Breathable slippers are a must-have for all year round. Breathable slippers are essential in every climate. Slippers that allow your feet to breathe, no matter the temperature, are essential for home comfort. Sweaty feet are a common issue that lots of us endure yearly, but we are here to provide the solution in the form of breathable slippers.



Breathable slippers are house shoes that allow air to circulate around your feet. We all know having hot feet can be uncomfortable, especially as the weather gets warmer, and that’s where  wool slippers come in! Breathable house shoes are ideal as  slippers for sweaty feet because they allow air to get to your skin and keep your feet cool and dry. They are especially useful in the summer because your wool slippers can keep you cool whilst cushioning your feet. With comfy feet at the perfect temperature you'll be able to enjoy relaxing at home.


The ideal material for breathable slippers is one that naturally lets air through its fibres and allows your feet to breathe. When finding your perfect pair of breathable slippers, you want to choose the right material.  Men's slippers and  women's slippers often feature materials that cause your feet to heat up. This means not all of them allow your feet to feel a breeze once they are enclosed in the slipper. We have slippers crafted from two lightweight materials ideal for keeping feet aired. 

  • Virgin Wool - the softest  type of wool has air pockets that allow circulation around your feet.
  • Cotton - due to the weave of the fabric, air can easily move around breathable slippers made from cotton. 

Both are an ideal natural material to make  eco-friendly slippers that are breathable, cosy, and versatile.


Virgin wool is that taken from a lamb’s first shearing. It is often the softest wool a sheep will produce in its lifetime. It is regularly found that as the sheep mature, their wool becomes coarser and not quite as soft. This is why we use virgin wool in our range of breathable slippers because it has fantastic cozy properties. Not only is this wool soft, it is also durable and  moisture wicking. The wool’s natural properties provide warm, breathable slippers, which are perfect for any time of the year. You will be able to slip your feet into comfort morning, noon and night, however you're spending your time at home.

Not only is this wool naturally breathable, but it also offers temperature regulating benefits. The natural wool is able to create  cooling summer slippers as well as  warm slippers for cold weather. 


We also have cotton slippers, with a loose weave this allows air to circulate. A benefit like this enables you to wear the same pair of breathable slippers throughout the year, and are the perfect house shoe for feet prone to overheating. You’ll also find that this material is lightweight, creating the perfect travel slippers that won't add weight to your luggage. Allowing you to take your breathable slippers with you on holidays to hotter climates.


Giesswein’s breathable slippers have many benefits designed to serve your foot with comfort all year. Our slippers are made with these benefits so that your feet can enjoy dry,  comfy slippers when you are performing daily activities. From cleaning around the house, to relaxing in front of the fire at night, look for these elements in your next pair of breathable slippers:

  • Temperature Regulating: Temperature regulation makes the  best slippers for all seasons. The tiny air chambers in the wool fibres allow air to move around the feet. Letting you stay cool during the hotter temperatures in breathable slippers. Due to the wool's natural insulating features, your feet will also be kept cosy in the cold as with our  winter slippers
  • Antibacterial Material: A fundamental feature to our breathable slippers is that they are made from an  antibacterial material. The wool in our slippers works to prevent bacteria from multiplying and attaching to the surface of the fabric. This also means they are naturally odor minimizing too! So even if you are prone to sweaty feet, or you wear them all the time, you can say bye to  smelly slippers!
  • Easy to Wash: Before having a pair of breathable slippers, you may have felt the urge to wash your house shoes constantly to ensure they are clean. With all the natural features our breathable slippers have, you don’t need to clean your Giesswein slippers very often. We know that spills and accidents do happen, so it is always helpful to know  how to wash wool slippers at home. Simply pop your wool house shoes into the washing machine and leave to air dry.
  • Moisture Wicking: One of the main benefits to look for in a pair of breathable slippers is moisture wicking. The fabric wicks excess moisture away from your skin and transfers it to the top layer of the material where it can evaporate. Wool and cotton house shoes make great slippers for sweaty feet due to this. Your moisture wicking, breathable slippers can leave your feet dry to the touch.

With all these features, our wool house shoes are ideal for everyday wear. You can even swap out your slipper insole for a support insole to make  slippers with arch support to maximise the benefits of your new pair of breathable slippers.

Everyone can benefit from breathable slippers due to their incredible benefits. Not only are these some of the  coziest slippers, but they promote foot health as they allow air to circulate.
