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 have not had a pair o these for years. Just as I recall, they are super providers of proper corrective comfort for my tired feet. You see, for three years I had been wearing these cheap Chinese imports that are all these rage right now. They offer no foot comfort or support. My girlfriend told me I was ruining me feet with no support for me arches, heels, or balls of my feet. She was absolutely correct. When I changed to Giesswein Vent, the prior pain I had experienced without these Giesswein Vent had resulted in excruciating leg and foot pain and an expensive trip to my osteopath, who could find nothing wrong with my body. The pain came from cheap Chinese imports lacking in the proper support my feet required. Also, I live in the American South where summer temperatures reach +100 degrees, and yet they are as cool as they can be. Thank you Giesswein Vent for saving my leg and feet so much trouble, pain, and money.

I am so happy I bought these slippers. They have great arch support and hug your feet with soft wool. A word about the sizing: I wear a size 7.5 or 8 or 38 in all other shoes. Following others' comments and the sizing instructions on the site I ordered a 40. It was big and almost fell off my foot when I walked. I ordered a 39 and it fits good although my toe is at the top. A 39.5 would probably be best but that's not an option. I have a high arch and high instep and was able to get the slipper on with no problem.

I absolutely love this slipper. It is basically the most perfect shoe I have ever owned, I just wish they made it with some summery material. I'm basically still wearing these around the house as long as it's below 80 degrees because they're that comfortable. I have narrow bony feet, my arches are super high and the balls of my feet jut out, and some of my toes are getting a bit of a hammer, and I have bone spurs on the backs of my heels. Pretty, right? And I wear a heel lift in one of my shoes, and lucky for me, the insoles of these slippers come out and I can put it underneath without any problems. It's hard for me to find shoes that I love. And these slippers are amazing! Worth every penny. I could go on, but I think you get the point.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock

I found these slippers very uncomfortable. They felt too small in size and had way too much arch support. It felt like I was walking around on tennis balls. I'm sending them back.

I was glad the shoe had great arch support. I got the bigger size as reviews recommended so the length of the shoe was right. But the shoe was too big around the ankle so there was flip-flopping when I walked. The elastic couldn't tighten enough to solve the problem. With that flip-flopping there was rubbing on the ankle with the rough wool. The shoe was too expensive to keep with this issue.
