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 a wide foot and high instep which made me kind of dubious whether these pretty slippers would fit. They are wonderful! The material is soft yet sturdy, adapts to particularities of one's feet. They fit like a glove, are costly but a sane investment in superb quality and comfort.

These slippers/shoes are tremendous! I usually wear a 42, and they fit perfectly, but sizes may have changed from season to season. That said, to get the color (red!) I wanted, I had to go down to a 41 and they really are okay, as well. Because I wear heavy socks, or go barefoot, I also have a size 43, but what I notice most about the different sizes is the footbed differences. If you've had Keen sandals, Birkenstock, you know what sort of support and cushioning you'll get here, too. I plan on wearing them in the summer, because the wool temperature regulates so well!

I'd also recommend: Keen sandals and shoes, Birkenstock shoes, Chaco,

Perfect footwear. After thousands of dollars of orthotics over the last 10 years, I finally found some relief for my ball of foot bursitis. I've even taken the insoles out to use in others shoes. Looking to buy the insole only for work shoes.

I am looking for comfortable slippers for around the house, not strong arch support for long walks. These supports were extreme and could not be removed. They were painful to stand on. Seems to be brand specific, as I ordered another slipper by this company and found the same uncomfortable insert.

These suckers are so hard to put on! Forget it if you have high arches. And I don't imagine it's much easier if you don't. Fairly comfy once you've gone through the contortions, but I didn't think they lived up to the hype.
