I have a mixed reaction to my pair of Giesswein Veitsch slippers. I like the look of them. Aside from the issues (which I'll mention) the quality seems solid. Having ordered shoes manufactured in Europe before I ordered a size larger. These still felt too small; my heel hangs over the back lip, which is intentionally low profile, so the slipper never feels as though it's fully on. I waited to see if breaking in would improve the fit; it somewhat did. The other problem I have is with the arch support. It's an insert and after a few weeks of occasional wearing, the insert in the right slipper would start inching out the back of the slipper as I walked. It appears the only reason the left slipper hasn't done this is that the back lip (which as mentioned, I tend to be standing on) has folded over in such a way that for now it holds the insert inside. I'll probably fix this with some adhesive or possibly a piece of hook & loop fastener in the heel of each slipper. For the asking price I'd expect this to have been incorporated into the design. It's possible the insert slippage is a consequence of the slipper running on the small size.

This is a good slipper. Comfortable, fits snugly, and the soles don't leave marks on my hardwood floors.

I believe these are the same fit as Flora. I have had four pairs of them. I wash them quite often and they come out really nice. I am looking forward to these. I have never had a problem with toes coming through the fabric. Maybe the people complaining about that are buying them too short. I love these comfortable slippers and unfortunately, so do my two Labrador Retrievers. They get them every time I put them on the floor. Now for pair number five.

These are such cute slippers. They are super comfortable at first but they really stretch. So much so that they actually fling off my foot just trying to walk around the house. I sort of have to scuff around to make sure that they stay on. My regular shoe size is 10M and I ordered a 41. I would suggest sizing down.

I wear a US 9. The Euro size 41 worked. The shoe is very sturdy and well built. A bit too sturdy for my needs. I was looking for a house slipper/shoe, but this was a bit overkill. Though would be good if you go outside often wearing your house shoes. As others have noted, the arch support is tremendous. My feet don't require that much support, so I found them uncomfortable. The inserts are removable, however. The opening of the shoe is also fairly small compared to other house shoes. These are not easy to slip on/off as you might prefer when getting in/out of bed.

I bought these for my daughter and she loves them! She's normally a 7 so I sized down to a 6 and they're perfect. I have a pair of these in the owl print so I knew they run a little big. I love mine as well! Very comfortable and way cute.

Very comfortable both indoors and out. I have a fairly thin-medium wide foot and they stay on fine. It took about three times of wearing them to "break them in."

I owned a similar style made by Keen and after several years they were falling apart! It was hard to face spending so much for slippers, but then again I will wear them almost every day. I think the wool is comfortable year round. These are even more comfortable than my last pair. They provide amazing arch support for slippers. The elephant design is adorable - it makes me happy to get up in the morning. I highly recommend them and there are many designs available.

These Giesswein slippers are amazingly comfortable. The arch support is excellent, and there is plenty of room in the toe area. My heel is narrow and it is not slipping around - the slippers fit very securely. I normally take a size 8 1/2 to 9. Based on what other reviewers stated, I ordered a European size 41 (American size 10) and it was perfect. They must run small. I would highly recommend these.

Having purchased these same slippers in the past, which I love,I reordered the same. Unfortunately they do not fit the same. The opening is really large. My feet slip out as I walk. I am not even sure if a smaller size would work as the length of the current size is good. I am sorry that the style was altered! I am disappointed and will need to return them.

These slippers were too wide for my narrow foot. They were not as sturdy as I would have liked. I purchased Haflingers instead, which hug my narrow foot and have a much thicker sole.

Nice arch support and high quality. But I don't get the sizing. One of my kids has the 37 and it almost fits me, so I went for 39, but it is barely larger than the 37. Sending these back; not sure I'll exchange for the 40 with such size inconsistency.

Fantastic slippers, worth every penny. They are comfortable, warm but not too warm, soft, and attractive (for a slipper). The arch support is excellent. The sole is pliable, and gets good traction on wood and tile floors. The quality is superb -- I am certain these will last a very long time, even with daily wear. I work from home, and these are my go-to shoes. I hesitated because of the price, but am really glad I splurged. Love them!

What a perfect slipper! So comfortable and made so well with a removable arched foot bed, which I love. The design is so beautiful, as well. I just love them!

My kids (8 and 11) have had great luck with Giesswein Ammern even though they are adult-sized slippers, so I wasn't sure the width issues other people have mentioned would be a problem for me. But the other reviewer of these (and the other reviewers of the other appliqued slippers) are right. These are way wide. I tried a 39 and a 40 but both slid off as I walked. Worse, there is too much gap between the upper and my foot as well as the slippers being wide. On the plus side, they are absolutely gorgeous and soft and the padding inside is nice and thick. But I'm going to send these back and try the less pretty Ammerns instead.

These are gorgeous and I so wanted them to work. They have excellent arch support and are sturdy enough to wear outside (and drive in, probably). The pictures don't do justice to the beautiful grey color or the flower. But if your second toe is longer than your first, forget about it. There is a slight curve to the top of the slipper than makes them impossible to fit comfortably. So, back they go. For what it's worth, as far as fit goes, I am a 9 in Camper Wabi and undecided between 39 and 40 in the softer Giesswein slippers with appliques. The 39 in these was too small regardless and it was only the toe-poke issue that made the 40s a "no."

First of all, I have had 4 pair of these slippers. I also have the one pair of Spital for my cabin, plus another with a bird and pinecone. The one problem I had with my first 2 pair of this design was the orange trim wore off at the heel, but I wore them till I went through the bottom...Loved them. Now the Flora has reduced the orange trim to just a stitch and they are wearing great. I ordered two more pair a few months ago. They usually last me 2 years of constant wearing. I can wear them out on the porch and deck too. Love these slippers and love the German look design...

Just had hardwood floors installed and wanted a nice slipper to wear. These are fabulous. Comfortable, easy to slip on. Don't know how it will do in winter but works great now. True to size even with socks on.

This is the second time I have bought these same slippers...I love them that much. With a very young puppy in the house my first pair lasted much longer than I expected. When it was time for a new pair I didn't even shop around, just got these. Great support and comfort. Don't stretch out too much, I get a half larger than my true shoe size.
