No time for laces? No sweat! There's a wide range of fashion-forward slip-on shoes for women you can slide right into—no ties, no tightening, just effortless comfort. Slip-on shoes are perfect for women who are constantly on the go.

Ready to go laceless? We rounded up some of the best slip-on shoes for women, including seasonless options, wear-to-work designs, summertime staples, and weather-proof picks for the winter. Let's get started.

What Are the Best Slip-On Shoes for Women?

The best slip-on shoes for women are versatile, stylish, an—most importantly—comfortable. Laceless shoes are also conveniently easy to get on and off and generally less bulky than their lace-up counterparts.

All that said, there are tons of options to choose from, and seeking out the right style for you might feel like an overwhelming task. But fear not because the footwear aficionados at TOMS are here to help you narrow down your options.

Ahead, 15 comfortable slip-on shoes for women in our favorite designs.

1. Slip-On Tennis Shoes

Slip-on tennis shoes are a streetwear staple for women. They're casual, cute, comfy, and appropriate for year-round wear. Not only that, but you can wear laceless sneakers with anything from jeans and jumpsuits to sundresses and shorts. It’s also one of the best slip-on shoes to wear with socks of all types. 

The styles from TOMS have our custom rubber outsoles, elastic gores, and removable cushioned insoles. Choose from textured linen, supple suede, or smooth leather uppers. If you don't yet have this sporty sneaker in your closet, it's not too late to get a pair.

2. Flats

Going for a more sophisticated, polished, professional look? Flats are the name of the game. Whether you're heading to the office, going on a date, or have a dinner party on the calendar, these slip-on women's shoes are flattering, feminine, and always fashionable.

When you browse women's flats from TOMS, you'll find styles with modest half-inch heels, leather welts, and our custom German outsoles for traction underfoot. What's more, the built-in insoles offer all-day comfort, so you can feel as good as you look.

3. Laceless Sneaker Booties

Whoever said Chuck Taylor sneakers are the only stylish high-cut shoes obviously hasn't worn laceless sneaker booties. Slip-on sneaker booties are similar to slip-on tennis shoes, except they go up to the ankles. You can rock this sporty ankle boot with chinos, jeans, athleisure wear, a jumpsuit, leggings, you name it. 

TOMS laceless sneaker booties boast stretchy dual-gore panels, plus pull tabs on the heels.

4. Espadrilles

This slip-on shoe is reminiscent of a sneaker but in the form of a wedge, or something in between, making it an ideal walking shoe. When you shop the collection of women's espadrilles from TOMS, you'll find all of these popular styles, each with sturdy rubber outsoles, cushioned footbeds, and cotton or suede uppers.

5. Smoking Slippers

Smoking slippers are another tried-and-true style, but don't let the name fool you. You don't have to enjoy cigarettes to wear smoking slippers—and they're not even really slippers. This chic yet understated flat-loafer hybrid is one of our favorite slip-on shoes for women.

With smooth leather, oiled nubuck, or blanket-woven uppers, plus textured outsoles and OrthoLite® insoles, our take on the timeless shoe is undeniably sleek and endlessly comfortable. You can wear them with professional attire, going-out garb, and anything in between.

6. Wedge Booties

When you're craving a little extra height, slip into a pair of wedge booties. Thanks to heel tabs and an easy pull-on design, these elevated styles from TOMS are an effortless footwear option you can wear all four seasons.

7. Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots are a slim-fitting ankle-high footwear style with elastic panels and pull tabs on the back. They're super easy to get on and off and can be dressed up or down, making them a go-to for the fall and winter. 

TOMS Chelsea boots have water-resistant uppers and rubber lug-style outsoles for maximum traction. Cushioned footbeds and pull tabs on both the heel and vamp are the icing on the cake for this slip-on women's shoe.

8. Peep-Toe Wedges

Ideal for spring, summer, or fall, peep-toe wedges are flirty, flattering, and fashion-forward. Because peep-toe wedges are one of the best slip-on shoes for work, it is the go-to footwear for many working women. That said, you can also wear them to a wedding with a semi-formal dress, or out for drinks with skinny jeans. 

The peep-toe wedges from TOMS feature soft suede uppers and our custom rubber outsoles. They even have hidden elastic gores for effortless on and off. When you buy a pair, they will quickly become your go-to work shoes.

9. Platform Slip-Ons

If you're looking for height but prefer a closed-toe shoe, go with platform slip-ons. TOMS platform slip-ons have hidden elastic panels, OrthoLite® insoles, continuous rubber cupsoles, and leather or suede uppers.

10. Slip-On Wedge Sneaker Booties

Wedge-style sneaker booties are similar to platform slip-ons but with ankle-high shafts. We love the look of these laid-back laceless shoes when paired with denim, athleisure clothes, rompers, jumpsuits, and maxi dresses.

11. Wedge Sandals

Then you've got wedge sandals, a long-running warm-weather essential for the ladies. The soles of this elevated shoe are typically made from cork, leather-wrapped stacked rubber, or jute-wrapped EVA.

When you browse heels and wedges from TOMS, you'll find backless slip-on styles with suede or textile uppers, high-traction soles, and extra cushioning to keep you comfy and steady on your feet.

12. Laceless Mid-Cut Sneakers

We're also big fans of the laceless mid-cut shoe, a sneaker-bootie hybrid that's right in between a low-top and a high-top. Our take on this casual style features lightweight cushioning, handy heel tabs, and rubber soles for unbeatable traction.

13. Sneakerized Slippers

If you work from home, like to spend time on your patio, or are just in the market for an excellent indoor-outdoor shoe, you should definitely consider sneakerized slippers. Slip-on sneakers have all the benefits of the regular sneaker but with the convenience of slipping them on. So much so that you can even wear them as travel shoes. The designs from TOMS have mid-cut suede uppers and faux shearling lining, plus removable OrthoLite® insoles and reliable rubber outsoles.

14. House Shoes

Speaking of indoor-outdoor styles, let's not forget house shoes (aka slippers). Comfy footwear is a must when venturing out into the world, but it's also vital to take care of your feet at home. After all, your foot needs a break, too.

The oh-so-cozy women's house shoes from TOMS come in a range of slip-on styles, including open-toe, mules, booties, and classic closed-toe designs. Whether you're partial to faux fur, felt, soft shearling, or sweater-knit, you'll find just the thing when you shop our collection and make you say goodbye to your crocs. Although they are house shoes, these styles are still fashionable enough to wear outside as walking shoes.

15. TOMS Classics

When it comes to slip-on shoes, TOMS Classic Apargatas are among the most popular options for both men and women. Inspired by the traditional Argentine alpargata, this fan-favorite footwear style has jute-wrapped, scalloped leather, or simple rubber outsoles with custom tread and traction pads.

Many of our styles feature traditional textile upper materials, such as canvas, linen, and burlap. You'll also find leather, suede, wool, and grosgrain options in various colors, patterns, and prints.

Why have TOMS Classics stood the test of time? From the versatile design and seasonless silhouette to the elastic gores and hand-washable OrthoLite® cushioned footbeds, there's a lot to love about this slip-on shoe.
