A fun little fabric called cycle has taken the home decor world by storm. Woven from looped yarn, the boucle is soft and fluffy. And after hitting the interior design scene in 2019, it quickly became a fan favorite. The fluffy fabric has graced everything from trendy sofas to fluffy decorative pillows. And now, he’s making a line for our shoes – blessing us all with comfortable shoes.

Fuzzy shoes aren’t necessarily new. But boucle makes comfortable shoes better than most. Why? The fabric is durable and stain resistant, so it’s great for furniture and even better for shoes. And since it doesn’t absorb water well, it lasts even on rainy days. Also, cleaning bouclé shoes is easy: just dip a cloth in soapy water and clean the stains in an instant.

The only problem? Boucle shoes are not easy to find. In the world of shoes, the boucle has many names: Sherpa, artificial shepherd, fleeceand sometimes simple artificial leather. So when you search for “boucle shoes,” you might draw a blank—even if the store you’re browsing is full of fuzzy shoes.

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

To hook you up with comfortable shoes without making you work for it, we’ve rounded up some of the best boucle shoes available. Our picks range from classics (like snug slides and fluffy slippers) to unexpected finds (like boucle pumps, fluffy heels, and comfy knee-high boots). And because the options abound, you can pick up a different pair of boucle shoes for every season.
