I splurged on these and have not regretted it one bit. I was sold on the rave reviews of the arch support
, and while these won't replace your orthotics
, they are way better than the flat insoles
of most slippers
Working from home
, I wear my slippers
a lot, I'm on my feet quite a bit, and I have been wearing these puppies (pun intended) nearly every day for the past two months. Results? Awesome. The labels came off the heel of the insoles
, and they've collected a nice sample of dog hair from around the house, but otherwise they are perfect! Cushy, roomy, supportive, non-slippery, warm without causing sweat, and cute as heck. I was worried that I'd step on the rise at the back -- didn't happen. I wondered if they'd stay on my feet when I went up and down stairs -- yes, they did, and well too. I figured I'd start seeing wear around the top where my big toe lifts -- nope. I imagine that if you didn't clip your toenails often, you could tear a hole in the felt after a while, but mine seem nice and thick, durable, and strong after the use I've put them through already. I also worried that the stitching would begin to unravel between the top and the sole -- still good as new.
Overall, I'm impressed. I'm tempted to say, though it's still early yet in my book, but my next slippers
may well be Haflingers again.
For the record, I wear a US size 7.5 to 8, and ordered a size 39, and found them to be a great fit.
