These are fantastic slippers; they are exactly what I was looking for and are very high quality. I needed plushy comfortable slippers in this kind of style, but with a suede sole, not one of those hard rubber/plastic indoor-outdoor soles that are everywhere these days. I was so glad to find these; I have worn them nearly every day since they arrived. Now my husband wants a pair! They do run small, meaning that if you normally wear a ladies' 8 shoe, you will want the ladies' 9-10 slipper. I bought both the 7-8 and the 9-10, and the 9-10 was definitely the right fit.

These were very comfortable at first, but after a few months of regular wear, the stitching in the body became exposed and was scratching my feet, making them unwearable. I had to throw them away. That was very disappointing. They feel great at first, and you think you have gotten a deal on Ugg-like boots, but their cheap quality shows through before long.

These were a gift for my father. I had gotten him Old Friend slippers several years ago, and they were his favorites. Finally time for a new pair, and he loves these just as much.

I returned a pair of Ugg Lexi and tried these. OMG they are heaven! I rolled up the cuffs to keep my ankles warm. My entire foot feels hugged by these. Even though there is no arch support built in since they are soft soled, they still feel supportive. The Uggs were terrible and made me feel flat-footed. These are very, very warm and comfy with or without my favorite wool socks. The best part is the soft sole for when you want to snuggle up on the couch or on a really cold night, even sleep in these! I wear an 11 or 11.5 in tennies and the Women's 11-12 fits very well, but my big toes do touch the end. It is not uncomfortable, though. They will stretch and the wool will compress given some time and then they will fit like a glove.

This bootie runs large. I wear a 10.5, but my feet were swimming in the 10-11, and that was before the fleece gets compressed down. Also, this bootee doesn't have a removable insole, so it may not last as long as the style that does (the one that has a rubber sole). That means it also has no arch support, so I think I'll be going back to the rubber sole kind. Super comfortable, though, and warm. For someone who doesn't want arch support, this is your bootie.

I am buying my Dad his second pair of these slippers and his first pair are not even worn out yet! He absolutely loves them because they keep his feet so warm. He just wants a back up... just in case!

Fabulous and so comfortable. Buy for Christmas gifts and be sure to buy a pair for yourself. You will not be disappointed! It has no noticeable arch support but I didn't expect it would.

These slippers were just what I was looking for and at the low end of the price scale. They are made of sheepskin with a suede leather sole and perfect for putting your feet on a table or bed. They are warm and fit well and seem well made (in China) of good materials. Note the caveat found in other reviews that the sizing is skewed to the smaller size. I wear size 10 shoes and ordered the 10-11 which put my toes against the front of the slipper. If I were a size 11 I would order the next size range (12-13).

These slippers are wonderful; they are so soft and comfortable (my toes have lots of room). I flip the sides and back up to keep my ankles warm. I'd like to see a longer tongue, so I don't need to wear socks. Also, I love the fact that you can adjust the tightness, however, although double knotted, the laces come untied on a regular basis. Even so, I would buy these again. If I see them on sale, I might just buy another pair to have in case they discontinue and that's how much I like them!

These are very soft and comfortable, and roomy enough for my wide feet. I wear a size 7.5-8, though, and these in size SM (Women's 7-8) were too short -- my big toe was pressed against the front of the slipper on both feet.

I have been buying from Zappos for several years. They always have an extensive selection and the lowest prices. They ship faster than any vendor I have ever used. Plus, the shipping is free both ways. I recently bought a gift for someone in the wrong size. They sent the correct size even before I returned the slippers that were the wrong size. All companies should operate like Zappos.

Very warm and comfortable slipper, but be advised that even the regular width is fairly wide. I wear a 7.5 shoe so I didn't size down, but the Women's Small (7 - 8) is more like an 8 and only stays on because of the drawstring. The non-unisex slippers in this brand are more accurately sized.

Totally wonderful! They are very soft and keep your feet warm enough without making them uncomfortably hot. I'm a 7½ and ordered the 7-8 and it fit perfectly.

These are wonderful slippers. What I like the best, besides the warmth, is how light, flexible, and quiet they are. If you like the feeling of being barefoot, but not cold, these are for you. Even if they stretch, they stay on because of the tie and bootie style.

I really wanted a pair of these. They were just the style I wanted. But I couldn't get the sizes to fit me. I wear a 6 1/2 and the XS was too small and the S was too big. Bummer. Great quality though.

These are the warmest, comfiest slippers I have ever worn. They are also nice looking and good quality. They do stretch out a bit after the first few weeks, so don\'t worry if they feel a tiny bit snug at first. Just order your normal size. Your feet will thank you.

OK, these shoes run small. I normally wear size 11. I went with the XL (listed as 12 to 13), and they fit perfectly. Also these slippers are much better with the sides flipped up. The look much cooler and keep my ankles warm. Overall, these slippers feel like heaven on my feet.

I was very impressed with Zappos customer service; honest, friendly, straightforward, promised and delivered. You've won a customer. I'd been looking and looking for a house slipper without a hard sole; impossible to find in Seattle. Live in apartment and didn't want or need a hard sole, Old Friends soft-sole slippers are perfect. Wonderfully comfortable and soft, only problem was getting the right size. I'm a size 11 and the first pair ordered was 10-11 way too small. Received the 12-13; thought they would be too big, but they're perfect; just the way you want a house slipper to be, easy to get in and out of and roomy for you toes. I've got them on now as I write.
