As winter approaches, the desire to ditch your regular shoes for cozy slippers is probably increasing by the day. Plus, it's never the wrong time to add another pair of comfortable travel shoes to your wardrobe.

If you want to feel like you're in slippers while actually wearing a perfectly presentable shoe, look no further than the newly redesigned Wool Loungers from Allbirds.

Some of the updates in this version of the Wool Lounger include increased heel padding for a better fit and less slip, subtler piping for a sleeker design, and a thicker outsole for more support. 

Like many of Allbirds' shoes, this shoe features an upper made from superfine merino wool, which is perfect for keeping toes warm in the winter with or without socks. The Wool Lounger now includes a fortified wool upper blend that makes them more durable than before. 

I recently tried Allbirds' Wool Lounger and I felt like I was getting away with something. My feet were impressively comfy but the shoes still feel polished enough to wear like I would any other slip-on sneaker or slipper-like loafer.

One of the best features of these slip-ons is their SweetFoam sole made from Brazilian sugarcane that allows you to comfortably wear them either inside or outside. Many slipper-like shoes are both comfortable and cozy but lack an appropriate sole to venture farther than the front door. The Wool Lounger conveniently has the same sole as Allbirds' other popular sneakers, making them one of the brand's most versatile styles.
