I’ve walked far too many miles in tight, ill-fitting, or high-heeled shoes that weren’t always comfortable. When I was younger, I would happily suffer for cute shoes, but no more. My feet have rebelled, and common sense has ruled. Sometimes a slip-on, slip-off shoe is just the easiest style to wear. I firmly believe it’s possible to look chic and stylish in an easy-to-wear, comfortable shoe. Today, we’re diving into the world of the best slip-on shoes for women over 50, including a few slip-on shoes that I personally own and swear by.

The Best Slip-on Shoes for Women Over 50
As we age, bending over to wrestle on a shoe and fight with clasps and laces is at the end of the list of things I want to do. Whether I’m having to shed my shoes for airport security or hurry out of the door for a last-minute errand, I’m always grateful for a great pair of slip-ons that I can easily (and quickly) get on and off. I have several tried and true go-to pairs that you can see me wearing on an almost daily basis. While researching for this post, I also found several new pairs to add to my list of shoes to try.
Slip-on Shoes I Personally Own and Swear By:
These little beauties are simply magical. I now own them in 3 colors. This super-comfortable slip-on sneaker has a suede upper that’s whipstitched to a flexible rubber sole. They stretch and mold to your feet and are cool in hot weather. I machine wash mine, and they come out looking brand new. Simply remove the insole and toss in the machine with jeans, etc., with cool water and let air dry.
The slip-on version comes in 7 colors. Ecco’s have a cushioned insole with arch support and leather upper/leather and textile lining/synthetic sole. The insole is also removable so that you can use your own custom orthotic.
This Traveltime Clog is one of Easy Spirits’ all-time best-selling shoes, with over 12 million pairs sold and 7,500 5-star reviews on Amazon. I was super excited to try these because they’re one of Easy Spirit’s most beloved styles. Like all Easy Spirit Walking Shoes, they’re available in sizes 5-12, in M, N, W, and WW widths, in tons of colors, and are amazingly comfortable.
These little Margaux ballet flats are pretty amazing. I discovered them several years ago while hunting for the most comfortable ballet flat. They come in seventeen colors in sizes 3-14, narrow, medium, and wide. I have them in this metallic, a pale gray, and a cerulean blue. They dress up or down and are very comfy.
I’m also a big fan of Rothy’s loafers. Their prints and colors change often, but the fit and comfort stay the same. These are made from recycled plastic bottles, so they will ease slightly but not stretch out, so buy your regular size.
I’ve worn my Birdies Starling loafers so often, I’m surprised they’re not falling apart….but they aren’t! They’re nice and roomy for my bunion and feel comfy all day long. I have the black velvet, which is perfect for winter, and now have my eye on a light raffia pair for summer. They make lots of fun patterns and colors seasonally to change things up.
These Birdies mules are also a favorite, although I don’t wear them for long days with lots of walking. The woven leather means they’re nice and comfy without binding anywhere. Like all Birdies, they’re made in new colors and prints each season.
Slip-On Shoes I Want to Try:
These loafers look very similar to the ultra-popular Gucci loafer, but this pair is much easier on the wallet! They come in lots of colors and prints in buttery soft leather and also come in wide sizes. I’ve heard lots of people rave about this style and how it has become their favorite shoe.
These Skechers slip-ons are the perfect combination of sporty and casual. I can see these being paired with a navy and white striped top for a classic nautical “coastal grandmother” vibe.
I’ve been wearing Munro shoes for many years. I own several pairs of their booties, as well as a pair of loafers that made their way into my rotation quite often this winter. Their shoes are always so comfortable, especially with my bunion. Their shoes are available in multiple widths in sizes 4-13.
Every time I post looking for shoe recommendations, so many AWSL readers comment or message me that they love Vionic shoes. I can see why because this brand prides itself on delivering a supportive shoe with arch support, stability, and cushioning. This pair looks like the offspring of my beloved Ecco slip-ons and my Isle Jacobsen Tulip shoes! Available in Sizes 5-10.
I love that these shoes are easy on and easy off. You only have to adjust the straps once, and then you have a hands-free pair of slip-on shoes. This allows you to skip bending down and retying your shoes, which is so helpful if you have problems with your back, knees, or hips. My husband bought one of the men’s versions and loves them!
