Dreaming of wearing slippers, in Freudian terms, may symbolize a yearning for the idyllic Oedipal phase, a time of comfort and security in early childhood.

It's a complex concept though... It may also indicate a desire to retreat from the pressures of the superego, the moralistic and critical part of the mind. If the slippers are worn, it could suggest a depletion of psychic energy, a state of exhaustion. Observing another in slippers might reflect an unconscious wish to adopt their perceived state of relaxation or it could be a projection of your own need for comfort onto them. This dream may be a call to balance the demands of the ego with the need for self-care and relaxation.0
