I love these slippers! I have lived in them since they arrived. I do wear socks with them as my feet get a little sweaty, but not as much as with Uggs or other sheepskin. They are roomy, so if you want a snug fit, order down a size.

These are pretty expensive for slippers. But they are warm, they are comfortable (minus the tendency of the back elastic to chafe a little, but that has been improving too), they are not getting the footsweat stink nearly as bad as cheaper synthetic slippers do, and they are built like tanks. I am hoping that they will last me for years to come.

Very comfortable house shoes with an arch support. They keep my feet from being too cold but the wool breathes so they don't get overly warm either. I actually wish these slippers were a little toastier since my feet are always cold, but I guess that makes them more of a multi-seasonal slipper.

I absolutely love these slippers! The boiled wool is nice. My feet do not perspire. They provide nice arch support. They have fun felt flowers. They make me happy to own and wear.

Love these slippers. I like to wear socks in my slippers and I get too warm in the ones with fuzzy insides. These keep my feet toasty, yet not sweaty. They have awesome arch support, roomy toe box, and I can wear my heel lift comfortably. I'm buying a second pair in henna, kind of want one in each color!

These slippers have great arch support, very comfy, but they stretched out after 2 or 3 days. I have an extra wide foot and they are loose on me. I find the arch support great which is why I bought them however, my foot slides from left to right which kind of defeats the purpose of having overall support. If I had saved the original box (which I usually do), I would send them back.

Beautiful slipper, fits well, nice gripper sole you can go on the porch with. Light weight warmth, not for an extremely cold climate. Fur is needed for really cold climate.

Fit is good. For those with medium to wide feet they will fit better. These slippers are truly all year round with the wool tops. Feet don't sweat with or without socks. Worth the cost.

Loved these immediately. Super comfy. Only issues are they stretched out after about 6 months and now a year later are too big. Also cause stinky feet! Still have loved them while they lasted.

These are the most comfortable house does I have ever owned. I developed plantar fasciitis in one foot and had surgery for Hallux Rigidus in the other so over gone through a few different brands until I found these. The last pair were Birkenstocks that were too wide with bare feet and the felt upper disintegrated in a very short time. The fit for me as a 9 1/2 D was great with a 43. At first this was a little tight with bare feet and too small with socks but they have quickly stretched to fit perfectly.

This is, bar none, the most comfortable slipper I've ever worn. Like some previous reviewers, I was a bit put off by the price, but sprung for them anyway, and am very glad I did. We have wood floors and previous slippers left marks on the wood, which I had to clean off. This harder sole does not do that and the arch support is outstanding. I highly recommend you buy them. Size seems to run small. I normally wear a 44, but they didn't have that or a 45 so ordered the 46 and they fit perfectly. Buy larger than you think you need.

Normally I'm a size 8 (39 euro), so I sized up to a 9 (40) and I was still couldn't really get my foot in properly. In fact, my thin/medium-weight sock kept bunching up in my arch, something that never happens with these socks. So all I can say, ladies, is get yourself 1 or 2 sizes larger than you think you'll need.

I tried many slippers last month looking for strong arch support. This one works! It's expensive, but the other ortho-support slippers just weren't strong enough. I'm able to wear these around the house without my orthotics. Too, they are well made. I even wore them cleaning up a flood in the kitchen. The rubber soles were slipped proof and the felt material didn't get soggy and dried quickly. I'm in bliss to have them.

Well...the smaller size didn't work. They just looked too bulky and kind of like clown shoes. Might work really well for men. Also I wish they made them a little more slender looking.

I've tried to buy my husband slippers for the last 3 winters. After at least 20 failures, he's finally happy with this one. Comfortable and warm but not too hot.

I started working from home in September, and it quickly became apparent that my LL Bean Wicked Good Slippers had Wicked Bad arch support. I have very high arches, and wearing flat slippers as primary footwear quickly led to a painful tendon inflammation that had me waking up in the middle of the night. In desperation, I went hunting for slippers with proper support and found these. Since I got these slippers last month, I've basically lived in them. I wear them all day, almost every day of the week. I'm wearing them as I write this review. They're outstanding. My tendon issue disappeared within days of putting them on, and I haven't looked back. I can't recommend these slippers highly enough, but know what you're getting into: these offer comfort in the European style; much like the seats in a BMW or Mercedes, comfort means firm support and proper ergonomic alignment, not the pillowy softness Americans generally associate with comfort. If you buy these expecting that, you will be sad. If you buy these expecting the cork-latex support of a Birkenstock footbed, you'll be as thrilled as I am. Bonus: the heathered color hides dirt and stains exceptionally well, which is a huge plus for home cooks. They're obviously not as warm as shearling-lined slippers, but with socks on you should be just fine through an East Coast winter. Your feet do a lot for you. Isn't it time you did something nice for them? Buy these.

After a long hot and dry summer, I am now ready for the change of seasons. Out of the box and never left the foot since - truly magnificent shoes that will keep my feet well supported and warm (but not sweaty) during winter.
