A fun little fabric called bouclé has taken the home decor world by storm. Woven from looped yarn, bouclé is soft and nubby. And after hitting the interior design scene in 2019, it quickly became a fan favorite. The fuzzy fabric has adorned everything from on-trend sofas to fluffy throw pillows. And now, it’s making a beeline for our footwear—blessing us all with cozy shoes.

Fuzzy shoes aren’t necessarily new. But bouclé does cozy footwear better than most. Why? The fabric is durable and stain-resistant, so it’s great for furniture—and even better for footwear. And since it doesn’t absorb water well, it holds up on drizzly days. Plus, cleaning bouclé shoes is easy: Just dip a cloth in soapy water, and dab stains away in a snap.

The only problem? Bouclé shoes aren’t easy to find. In the footwear world, bouclé goes by many names: sherpa, faux shearling, fleece, and sometimes just faux fur. So when you search for “bouclé shoes,” you might draw a blank—even if the store you’re browsing is packed with fuzzy footwear.

The trick is knowing where—and how—to look. And since we’ve become armchair experts in bouclé terminology, we can save you a few hours of sleuthing.

To hook you up with cozy shoes without making you work for it, we’ve rounded up some of the finest bouclé shoes on offer. Our picks range from classics (like snuggly slides and fuzzy slippers) to unexpected finds (like bouclé pumps, fuzzy heels, and cozy knee-high boots). And since options abound, you can snag a different pair of bouclé shoes for every single season.
