We make your slippers last longer by crafting them out of machine washable materials. Whether it’s dust, stains, or odors, simply throw them in the wash and they’ll come out looking as good as new. So spend more time relaxing, and less time cleaning.

RockDove Slippers Are Built to Last
Durable Indoor Outdoor Sole
The first RockDove slippers were made for outdoor enthusiasts who, even at home, actively shuffle in and out of the house for chores and hobbies. Staying true to our roots, every pair of RockDove’s comes with an indoor outdoor sole. Made of the same natural rubber used in trail running sneakers, they’ll let you walk to the mailbox or backyard without switching shoes. We’ve also added an anti-shock EVA layer to reduce impact when you step on the occasional living room Lego or driveway pebble.

Born with the free-spirited ease of southern California, we’re the place you go to kick back and relax.
Tiny Mattresses for Your Feet
The sole-crushing shoes or boots you wear during your daily 9-to-5 can wreak havoc on the 100-plus muscles, ligaments, and tendons in each ankle and foot, causing—ouch!—pain. Coming home to a pair of RockDove’s, with their plush memory foam, breathable fabrics, and lightweight soles, feels like heaven for your feet. They’re slippers that let your feet move and groove every way they need to. (Just remember to tell your puppy they’re not his new chew toy).
Breathing Life Into a Boring Product
Many people see slippers and think “they’re just slippers.” And comfort is the only thing that matters, right? We don’t think so. Based in the West Coast fashion capital, we’re constantly scouting the latest fabrics from LA’s Fashion District and star-inspired trends from Hollywood just 25 miles down Santa Monica Boulevard. From chic silhouettes, vibrant colors, to bold prints that never before found their way onto slippers, we’re out to prove that mundane can be beautiful.
Give the Gift of Downtime
This holiday season, give someone you care about a gift that’ll instantly warm their heart (and feet). Or convert that man in your life who’s never been a “slipper person” and always worn shoes in the house. Let their cold, hardworking, and aching feet experience that incredible “ahh…” feeling upon stepping into a pair of RockDove’s for the first time. For couples, check out our matching men’s and women’s styles. For families, pick a different color for everyone and create oh-so-cute family photos.
RockDove was created for five birdwatchers of the Los Angeles Audubon Society in 2002. They were our customers, when we weren’t yet a slipper company, but a beachside workshop in Santa Monica, California that resoled hiking boots. For fifteen years we protected the feet of avid adventurers as they trekked punishing terrains across southern California’s mountains and deserts. As their local shoe cobbler, when customers had footwear needs, they came to us. And over time they asked for something that was badly missing, not in their time conquering the outdoors but in their lives at home—quality indoor shoes to console their high-mileage, trail-weary feet. So for Christmas that year, we handmade five pairs of slippers for our long time Audubon customers using a low-cut boot last.
Shoe brands in southern California, where sunny beaches and flip flops rule, don’t pay much attention to slippers. So we had little to build on. However, we did know how to make comfortable, long lasting footwear. Using mattress memory foam, gel insoles, anti-shock cushioning from hiking boots, and more, we designed slippers with the goal of comforting extremely tired feet. Two months later when we sent out a newsletter about our little experiment, customers responded with 350 mail orders. We named our slippers after the most mundane bird we knew, the rock dove (pigeon) often seen strutting the boardwalks of Santa Monica Pier. They’re a memento of where we’re from and what we represent.
Inspired by Adventure, Made for the Everyday
To this day our legacy of creating footwear as if for the most exhausted, adventure-wearied feet lives on. But adventure isn’t always hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Everyone lives their own version of it, every single day. We make slippers so that anyone who’s on their feet all day—not just passionate outdoorsmen but teachers, chefs, nurses, cashiers, traffic cops, postal workers, and more—can count on switching into the world’s most comfortable slippers once they get home.
The Sweet Spot Comfort Level
Our quest to get comfort down to a science pushed us to become one of the earliest adopters of high-density memory foam in slippers. In 2004, we reached out to local sleep experts at the Long Beach Mattress Company to source their memory foam toppers, which we then molded into insoles. But mattress comfort didn’t exactly translate to slipper comfort. So we obsessively tweaked the density and firmness ratings of our foams to create that “sweet spot” level: one that offers incredible comfort, yet not so much cushioning that you’ll feel like walking in quicksand. Today, at the heart of each RockDove slipper is a multilayered foam construction—a 40-70D memory foam pressure-mapped to every part of the plantar aspect, a support foam that adds firmness, and an anti-shock EVA layer.
