I was hoping that these slippers would fit, but I had a nagging feeling that they wouldn't quite work. Wow, was that off! Way, way off! These are the most comfortable slippers I have ever owned. My feet are narrow, and I usually get zip when it comes to support - these, however, have incredible arch supports! There is plenty of wiggle room for your toes, and the instep fits snugly (but comfortably) over the top of your foot. I did read in one of the reviews that they ran small, so since I usually wear a 9 1/2, I ordered a 10. Perfect! They also have that rubbery bottom so that they can be worn outside.

Returning these slippers. I am a size 13, and ordered a 13. These run small and tight. Additionally, the soles had very little support. That was a concern of mine looking at the pictures online, but the ratings said support was good. Not true, in my experience.

I've worn several other brands of boiled wool slippers in the past, and all have been warm, soft, non-itchy, and comfortable. None are a fashion statement, but hey, they're slippers! This is my first pair of Giesswein's, and where they surpass similar slippers from other manufacturers is in the arch support. They seem to be very well-made -- time will tell. They do run on the very slightly large size -- come winter, when I'll wear them with socks, they'll fit perfectly. In summer, this lets my feet breathe a little more.

What I like about the Giesswein slippers generally is the wonderful boiled wool and the quality. However, these run so big! Every brand is different, it's hard to tell what one's "normal" size is, but I generally find myself in 5.5, 6, 6.5. I ordered the 5 and they swim on me. There is no smaller size.

Love these slippers! Warm but not hot, washable, comfy for padding around the house. I wear them every day as soon as I get up and as soon as I get home from work. Sizing seems normal.

Too big overall. I'm usually 8.5W, so I ordered size 40 (some reviews suggested that this ran small). They probably run true to size, and the 39 (my usual size) would have fit, I think. Good support, but no heel. Rubber underneath is a plus. Returned since I found 2 others which were perfect for my feet.

These slippers were a big disappointment. I have a problem with my ankles, and my doctor ordered orthotic slippers. These slippers are not very attractive, but I was willing to forgo style for function. Unfortunately, they are very soft and stretch out over time, so the support they provide becomes less, the longer you wear them. Even more disappointing, they are falling apart after only three months. One slipper has developed a hole over the toes, and the back edges behind both heels are unraveling. I have washed them once, according to the manufacturer's instructions, but I am afraid if I wash them again, I'll have nothing left. These were expensive slippers and I really regret buying them. Unfortunately, I did not keep the original box, or these would be going back. This price for slippers that start falling apart after three months? Don't do it!
