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!

Sturdy yet comfortable. Like other reviewers, I found them running a bit small but I ordered by European sizing (43) which is what all of my Ecco shoes are, and they fit, even though I usually buy American shoes in a 9 wide. There is no extra room but a slipper doesn't need it. Comfortable when on, but very tight to put on around the heel due to my high arch. Hopefully they'll stretch out a tiny bit to make that easier. I was surprised to find so much arch support in the insole of a slipper, but it works for me.

I'd also recommend: Ecco (just avoid the soft polyurethane soles that disintegrate)

Immediately I couldn't help but notice my big toes rub against the roof (for lack of a better word) of the shoe. The cause (my hypothesis): It appears the cast of these slippers are almost curved down at the mid-foot and slightly up again at the toe box. Additionally, I really like the aesthetics of this slipper, therefore I hope they work out. (I bought a pair for my wife as well. Fingers crossed and likes them). The insert is part cork. Really great support and impact absorption.

I have been looking for a good pair of slippers for a couple of months. Poor Zappos....they have sent so many to my doorstep only to have them returned. This pair caught my eye because I am a knitter and I love boiled wool. I have read most of the other reviews about these being too small and recommending that you go one whole size larger. I am between a 7.5 and an 8.0 US size, Wide Foot and I have a high instep. I followed their advice I ordered a 9.0 US but it was way too big. So back it went. I then ordered a size 8.0 and it is just perfect. I actually took out the footbed with arch support and instead inserted a sheepskin insole that I found on Zappos from OLD FRIEND. Expensive, but this is a great winter slipper!

I'd also recommend: Old Friend

These slippers fit great and they are wonderful. I like the way they fit under my feet, because they give me some support under my arches. They are warm, they stay on, but they are also easy to slip on and off. I can step outside in them because of the sturdy soles. They were very expensive, but the reviews convinced me they are worth it. I agree!

I'd also recommend: Keene

Bought these slippers because they were said to accommodate orthotics. It's true! They fit my custom orthotics with no problem. Even with out the orthotic the removable foot bed was actually comfortable with good arch support, I happen to have very high arches so I needed a little more arch support but it you have flat feet or normal arches these shoes should be perfect. The toe box is wide, I like this because I like to move my toes around to keep them stretched. These slippers are expensive but they are well made. I do have to wear one thick pair of socks over a thin pair to keep my feet warm though (winters are cold in NJ) but I've had to do this with all my slippers, Acorns, deer forms you name it. I would buy these again but it will be a while, they seem like they will last for years.
