Very warm, comfy, plush interior, and a great non-skid sole, but does run smaller than your own shoe size. In my case it's by half a size (my 7 1/2 foot needed an 8 bootee), and with socks, if I wore them, I would need an 8 1/2. I didn't know until I got the bootees that the insole was removable and washable. VERY nice feature. This also means you can buy Ugg insoles at a later date and keep your bootees renewed without needing to buy new ones (Zappo's sells them). The removable insole feature may have been in the product description; I just missed it. Even though there is no arch support (that I could feel), it's still wonderfully comfortable.

I purchased these for my mother, who suffers from chronic-old-lady syndrome, of which cold feet and loud complaints are a persistent symptom. In order to suppress these symptoms, I took the liberty of purchasing this "old friend," of which I already own the male version and am duly satisfied with. Upon receiving them, there was clearly a difference in quality between my bootees (purchased around March 2011) and these. They are noticeably lighter, and have different or less fleece in the lining. The difference in weight and feel is astounding. I don't know whether this company is just misogynist or if they seriously cut back on quality within the last few months to save a few bucks (rather than raise prices like everyone else seems to be doing), but these are not the "old" friends that I know. These booties are a new friend who is quickly losing favor with me. For that reason, I'll give it 1 star just to highlight this review and let people know that the quality of recently made booties may be suffering. However, despite the decrease in quality, these booties are still probably the best on the market for the price, so, my real review would be 4 stars. I would just like the company to get back to making them really well, and maybe increase their price by 5 bucks if necessary.

Contrary to other reviews, these slippers fit exactly to size. I'm glad I ordered my shoe size and not something larger. The only problem I've noticed is that they're difficult to get on due to the small opening in the neck of the bootie. Once on though, they are the best pair of slippers I've owned: warm, comfortable, and supportive with a good sole and great tread.

I keep my home rather cold and these slippers kept my feet happy and warm. Online I looked and looked for a good price and was very happy with the price. I like the rubber sole as I can step out side when has rained and not get my feet wet. I have worn them almost every day since they arrived and am very happy. Thanks Zappos.com.

Thick, cozy sheepskin completely embraces your feet and ankles. My regular size was much too small, so I exchanged for the next larger size (comes in only full sizes) and that is tight too, but going up another full size would have me tripping over myself. I do love them; I just wish the sizing was better.

These booties will keep you warm all winter. They have durable rubber soles which will last you years. I am very picky about my shoes and these will keep you warmer than Uggs. I just tested them. Thanks Zappos for next day delivery. This was my first Zappos purchase and I know I am already hooked!

I am so pleased with my new Bootee slippers that I got from Zappos! I was able to return the first pair because I needed the next size and it was so simple to return this pair and get the right size Bootees within three days! I love these shoes because of the rubber soles which allow me to go outside in them to get the morning paper or walk the dogs. Great job, Zappos!

I just love my "Old Friend Bootee's." At first they felt a little short, but I couldn't stop myself from wanting to wear them. So now they really feel super. This is my Christmas present to my self, and I am so very happy. Happy Holidays to all at Zappos.com.

Brands I'd also recommend: People need to shop around on the Internet, this is my first time to order with Zappos.com and I must say it will not be my last time. Everyone that I talk with was wonderful. Great customer service skills..

Love my slippers, I wake up & actually get warm fuzzy feelings inside thinking about putting them on. I quickly discovered I can turn the fold up so I get the warmth around my ankles. Did I say I love 'em?!

Just got my new slippers...they are as soft as silk and super warm! I love them. I got the 8W because I have bunions, but the length was perfect. A bit loose in the heel though. I love stability of the outer sole and the softness of the sheepskin lining a wonderful combination.

These slippers have wrapped my feet it toasty warmth while a winter chills sets in around me. I have let the dog outside and gone out with him in the snow while wearing them and my feet were still warm and comfortable. The size feels true and the sole is enough to protect them while heading out for the paper. I am so thrilled with these.

from Raleigh, NC

My feet are wide and two different sizes: left is 7.5 EE, right is 8.5 D. I ordered these in a 9 W and they fit great! I would actually say if you are a true 9 they may be a little short as my right foot doesn't have any excess room at the end. They are easy to get on without using my hands and have formed to my feet well. I love that the ankle cuff can be worn up or down, and the rubber soles are great for dashing to the mailbox. These slippers keep my feet warm but not hot. I wear them all day at times as I work from home.

Soft comfy slippers. I ordered a half size bigger due to the recommendations of other customers, but that was a mistake. They fit true to size. Slippers did have a slight odor, but I kept them anyhow. The fleece was really comfy and the bottoms are durable enough to wear outside to get the paper.The removable sole is great because I can remove it to launder in Woolite if needed.

Great slippers! Really comfy and well made. Half the price of other brands, and just as good. Love 'em. Go for the larger size if you're in doubt, they are a little short up to size 10. Fine for me since I wear a 9.

These were bought for a Christmas gift and the woman who received them loves them. She said they are the most comfortable slippers she ever had plus the fact that she can go out to get her paper with the rubber soles. An excellent buy and very comfortable.

I bought these as a gift for someone who is very hard to fit. She was thrilled! She said they were a perfect fit, and the soles offered just the right amount of traction without being stiff.

I had these booties for about a year. When I first put them on i remember being very let down at how tight they were, but after several wears they start to form to your feet and the fluff starts to flatten. I almost returned them after that initial try and am SO glad I didn't. These were truly amazing and comfortable slippers, around the house, to get the mail, and occasionally I'd even forget I had them on and would wear them to school or the store. I wear 9.5-10, and went with the 10. They were perfect on my feet after the first few wears.

I love these slippers. Be aware that they run small. I ordered finally one full size up and I take a 7 M. But they are just what I needed. Most comfortable and I like the sturdy soles.
