These would be wonderful is they were narrower. Much too wide, maybe a D width. If you have wide feet, they would be ideal.

Awwwww.... I was so excited to order these slippers as I NEED arch support (I have very high arches)and I thought: This is it! Finally found slippers with support! I REALLY didn't want to pay such a high price for slippers, but I broke down, as I need the support, plus I have hard, cold, stone tile floors. The slippers I received (Veitsch, in Ocean color) looked great out of the box. Beautiful construction. I put them on and they felt a little too short. My toes came right to the tip of the slipper. The feel of the slipper was superb as far as the arch support was concerned. I normally wear a size 9 Medium in womens (US). I ordered size 40 (EUR) in this slipper. I have a pair of clogs made by Mephisto in Euro size 40 which I absolutely adore, and so I was sure this would be the right size to order. Then I started walking around in them and the back lip of the slipper kept slipping off my heel, and as I walked, that lip tucked itself under my heel. I so wanted these to work, but for the price it is unacceptable for the slipper to do this. I will try another style, not the clog style. I'm not sure if the slipper is just too short, or if it is the style. Size 41 in this style is sold out, so I will order something else. Sigh.....

I'd also recommend: Mephisto

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.

These are the classic German house shoes, as my friend who lived in Germany explained. They provide more support than many regular slippers. They offer great arch support, have a sturdy but lightweight sole, and breathable wool. These are the finest slippers that I have found in all the land!

This is the most comfortable slipper I have ever worn. Sizing is generous but not oversized. Like the "life" commercial, "Try it you'll like it!" The footbed is so soft, better than other Giesswein models. I , e.g. Voerde, though review suggest the Vent is built on same last. Bottom line: great slipper.

I'd also recommend: This is the best, Heflinger is second best.
