WARNING: Keep an extra pair of shoes in your car because you will forget to take these off when you leave the house. I regularly find myself wearing them in the grocery store, in the carpool line, etc. The arch support and wide footbed are fabulous, and no slipping up and down my heel which happens with many shoes.

These are the best slippers I've owned in a while. Very comfortable, nice arch support and a soft wool fabric provides just the right amount of warmth without causing your feet to sweat. Not sure about the long-term durability yet given I just bought them 3 weeks ago, but I'm pretty sure they will be fine. Removable footbed should help them last for years.

Ordered these to replace some cheap slippers that did not last. They are comfortable and run true to size. I like the rubberized sole for minor use outdoors on sidewalk. They are warm and I can wear with or without socks. I would buy again. Got these because they are enclosed and you can increase tension at top if you desire. So far have not needed any adjustment.

Followed previous reviews of ordering a size up and good thing I did because they just barely fit. Love the comfort with it's great arch support and comfy wool top. I have plantar fasciitis so I need to wear supportive shoes inside and out. These help a lot while I'm cooking in the kitchen and need hours of support. Not really my style (everything black) but for anyone else the flower detail is very cute.

They felt like a dream from the very first, and are very warm, but I am thoroughly disappointed. After a mere 4 months, the heel cushion and sole are wearing out and the interior is full of 'dust bunnies', wads of wool that I can pull out. At a cost of almost $100, I would have to say they are virtually the worst shoe I have ever purchased. Even though you wear them only in the house, you can't wear them every day, or they start falling apart. 4 months of wear is a disgrace. I expected more.

These are cute and practical. Removable insole is great for those interested in a flat footbed (barefoot style) but the option of arch support when you want it. Nicely wide toe box (again helpful to barefoot-style shoe adherents) but not so wide as to look like clown shoes. I only wish the purple had been available in my size.

Someone recommended the Giesswein Ammern Classic on the Sweet Home's recommendation of slippers (the site actually went with the Haflinger AS Slippers). I got these not knowing what to expect, but absolutely adore them. I'm Asian, and lived in Japan for a long time, so having "indoor shoes" I that are comfortable and easy to get in and out of is of real importance to me. I've bought many Japanese indoor slippers, but the cleanable soles, more support at the bottom, and breathability of the lambswool tops any pair of slippers I got, including some higher end ones from boutique stores in Japan and Muji. I took note of the complaints that these run small, and ordered a Men's 10 (I usually wear 9.5). The 10s fit great, with socks and without. The Wire Cutter's knocks on these slippers compared to the Halflinger don't really hold up for me. It's true that there's little arch support, but I don't need that from an indoor slipper. Amazon is also replete with reviews that state the latest version of the Halflinger is made more cheaply than before, and numerous people are stating they fall apart after several months, whereas I don't see that happening with the Giesswein.

I can not explain how much I love these slippers! They are so warm, the wool keeps your feet nice and dry, and even though the patterns seem a little goofy, they are so cute when you're wearing them! I have the toucan ones and bought the elephant ones for my friend because I love these slippers so much. I usually wear a solid 7 1/2 and I got the 7 and they fit perfectly, but the 8 fit well too. It all depends on if you would rather wear thick socks with them or not. They're a little wide too, but that makes sense because they're slippers. Treat yo self! They are well worth the price.

I am a solid Women's size 10. These slippers were too short. My toes were jammed against the ends.

when my husband heard me say how much I loved my Giesswein slippers, he asked me if they had men's styles. He is really pleased with his and is wearing them all the time inside. His US shoe size is 9.5, and we ordered the size 43 (US 10 equivalent) and they are roomy enough for socks and not too big.

I loved these slippers for the first year. They are comfortable with great arch support. Warm but not too warm. Unfortunately, a hole appeared after only wearing them for a year. I understand it is likely the way I walk, but I would have expected them to last longer.

Love them! A friend told me about these wonderful slippers as we both needed slippers with good support. I purchased them and my daughter who recently had surgery for a broken back liked mine and I told her about their good support so I ordered a pair for her birthday we both love them

The removable innersole is made of suede, and it is extremely difficult to get one's foot into the slipper.

This slipper ran a little short as I am a 9 1/2 and the slipper is a ten. After inserting my orthotic, the slippers "leaned" to the left so that I was walking on the sides of my feet.

Love these slippers, quite perfect, like a thick sock. Love the grippy bottoms. The only thing I would change is to have a somewhat thicker sole with a tad more arch support. But they're great! I wear 8.5 - 9. These just fit me in a 9.

Very Casual, but they didn't really work with jeans or leggings.

Found these to be very wide, and difficult to walk in.

Much too small. I ordered a size 13, which is my normal size, and I couldn't even fit my feet all the way in.

Love this slipper! Warm, good support and very comfortable. It is all wool so I am hoping if there are any issues I will be able to repair them myself. I highly recommend these slippers if you have finicky feet like mine.

So disappointed to send these slippers back. They are adorable, well made and worth the price. For my size 8 size these slippers were too large overall in sizes 37, 38, 39. The 36 might have fit except they would have been too short

I am in love with these shoes. I am a woman with very wide feet and I have a hard time find a shoe that is both comfortable and good looking and this is both. Because they are wool, they are warm and water resistant so I tend to reach for these if it is raining. Also, I made a trip to NYC over New Year's and walked blocks and blocks in these in the snow and rain. The shoes held up well and were nice to my feet. I am in love with these shoes.
