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!

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!

Love the arch support for overpronation. Normally wear orthotics in all my shoes but do not need at all for these. Can wear all day at home in great comfort. I only wish I dared to wear as a shoe when I go out and about - but I did buy the red ones. Maybe try in dark color. Size 41 for womens size 9.5 and I do think runs a bit small but not too small. I have put sheep's wool in the toes for a tiny bit extra padding as the toes box is quite stiff (not gonna get holes in the toes of these slippers unlike Ugg boots which always get holes with a lot of wear). They are extremely well made and I am sure they will last for years so are worth the high price. I bought another style of Giesswein last year and they have worn very well with almost daily wear.

I'd also recommend: orthaheel have great built in arch support especially the sandals.

I have an arch problem and these slippers are absolutely great in the arch and great in overall comfort. I have never seen anything like it. Please disregard my five stars on style. I think they look great, but I am a poor evaluator for style.

My fiance really liked these on me, but I went with a slide version because I wanted something I could slip on and off without hands. My heels also slipped out a bit as I walked (they do that even in flats). I'm usually a 39, but ordered a 40 as suggested. They were still too short. Order two sizes up!
