I absolutely love this slipper. I own Haflinger, Ugg, Acorn, Minnetonka and Woolrich - all of which are great . The Giesswein Vent is an Orthopedic experience - extraordinaire! It is the Mercedes Benz of my slipper experience. The arch support is wonderful and the comfort level is like walking on clouds. I am a Mens 9 and size 43 fit perfectly. I highly recommend this slipper!

Would be a great shoe if size was correct. Ordered size 14 and it felt very uncomfortable at the toes. I have a foot size of 12, this shoe feels 3 full sizes smaller. Very unfortunate!

I am a size 8 men's and as others have noted these slippers runs small. I ignored the advice and ordered a size 41 European and when they arrived they were about 1 size too small. I returned the 41 and ordered a 42. Although they feel roughly half a size large I can live with that. They are slippers after all, and comfortable ones at that.

I bought these slippers because I was unable to find the Orthaheal slippers that I like any more. These slippers have worked out very nicely. The removable insert has a nice arch support that is made out of a firm jelled rubber and has a nice feel (you could replace with your own support if you wanted.) The wool is soft but very warm. Side note: I am a pretty solid size 9 and have been for years. When I ordered these slippers I ordered a size 9 and my toes are at the very tips of these slippers. I can ware but I think I would have been happier with and size larger.

The sizing on these are off. A women's 42 does not equal an 11. I followed Zappos sizing guidelines and sure enough, when I got them they were a size too small. So order up a size or use the size of another European shoe that you wear. Overall, the slipper was very comfortable and I liked that you could remove the insole since I have orthotics and bad feet. However, the insoles that came with the shoe were so comfortable I don't think I'll even need to use my orthotics. The shoe has lots of support in the footbed. The only things I didn't like about the shoe was that it is way too wide, I guess because these are unisex. Also, they are not very stylish. I wish there was some fancy embroidering or something like on Smartwool slippers. But if you are just wearing these indoors, comfort beats style so I don't really care that much.

Really well made. Excellent arch support (I have high arches). Almost impossible to get in (I have high instep). Runs short.
