This was the second pair of foam treads that we have purchased for my mother-in-law who is 94 years old. We originally purchased them for house slippers but she liked them so much she wears them when she is out walking in the yard. Yes I said that she is 94 but still gets around pretty good. The foam treads offer both comfort and support and the soles are durable and non-slip which is very important for a 94 year old. The velcro strap across the instep makes putting on and taking off very easy and the strap can be adjusted for comfort. All in all an excellent shoe for any age.

These do not feel like slippers at all, they feel like shoes. Not comfy enough. I agree with an earlier reviewer that the placement of the label on the sole of the shoe is uncomfortable.

Looks like a dressy shoe. Appropriate for an elderly woman to wear at a wedding under black pants. Sturdy enough as a shoe, not just a slipper. Velcro allows for large ankles. Pretty.

These are great, but they run small & narrow. I ordered by usual size & am returning to replace with the next size up. I hope they fit!

I bought these shoes for my 89- year old mother who spends most of her time in a wheelchair. They provide good slip resistant support when she is being transferred (standing for a few seconds), are comfortable for her and easy for caregivers to put on.

Because I wear a ladies size 12 medium and I wear orthotics, I have a difficult time finding slippers that fit. The fit is very good. The velcro tabs really help keep the slippers on my feet.

These slippers run a whole size too small. I normally wear a size 7.5 shoe, sometimes an 8 if they run small. I ordered a size 8 and they are too small. Also, I have medium width feet and have never needed wide. These slippers fit the width of my feet but my feet felt like they were pressing against the sides of the slipper more than they should. Maybe they would stretch a bit with more wear but I'm returning them since they were too small/short. I think they're average in terms of comfort and quality. The style is pretty cute.

My mom (92 years old) just went to a nursing home. Mom has trouble with her feet so I wanted something comfortable that would be slippers and casual shoes. These shoes were perfect. I bought two pairs and when I tried to get her to try the second pair on, she did not want to take the first pair off. She said they were very comfortable and for the first time in two years she was able to put her own shoes on. They seem to have good traction which I felt a necessity at her age.

My mother is 94 years "young" and has some difficulty rising from a chair that is on hardwood in our home. When searching the web for slippers I came upon these Formtreads. The traction, comfort and ease of use of these slippers is unsurpassed. She no longer fears falling. They are machine washable and hold their shape. I highly recommend these slipper.

I ordered these slippers for my elderly mother. She needed something supportive and comfortable. These fit the bill. I am glad that they came in wide. That is difficult to find in slippers.

This is a nice, comfortable houseshoe-like slipper. The velour-like outside looks good. It has a fairly firm insole, yet the padding is comfortable. There is room to add a support insole or more padding if you need it. I am enjoying this slipper.

I bought the slippers for my 93 year old aunt in a nursing home. All of her friends complimented her on them. They thought they looked great. They are very soft on her tender feet. They keep her feet warm and look like shoes not slippers. The best advantage is the non-slip soles, a definite safety future.

Don't like them at all. The name, Foamtreads, implies cushiony softness. They are stiff, not comfortable.

On my feet, the strap was too short and did not make the shoe stay on. I'm sorry because this was just what I wanted.

I bought these for my 80 year old mother in law, she loved them! These shoes fully adjusted to her feet, were very comfortable right out of the box, & have a great non skid sole. I was happy that she loved them so much!

These slippers are more like a shoe with stability and support. I do wish the lining was softer or lined with terrycloth or fleece. I have to wear socks when I wear these slippers.

Although plenty comfortable and wide enough, there's absolutely no arch or shape to the totally flat footbed. I had incorrectly assumed these were therapeutic shoes, so they had to go back. Too bad, because even my teenage daughter thought they were stylish.

I bought these for an aunt in a nursing home. She is a leg amputee. These are perfect for helping her not slip when transferring to/from her wheelchair. So much better than those socks with plastic on the bottom. She loved these, Plus the Velcro helps with the fit so much.

These are great slippers but do order a half size larger as they run short. They offer firm footing like a shoe.

My mom has a size 12 and her feet hurt all the time. We have tried so many types of slippers that have not worked. We went on line and pick these out together and I cannot begin to tell you how happy Mom is with these slippers. She actually can get around without having any pain. There is just enough support and due to the strap you can adjust just how tight you want them. They are a blessing!

These are very comfortable shoes and they look great... we don't wear shoes in the house, but I like to cook and am on my feet a lot, so these provide great cushion and support, and they look nice enough that I can wear them when company comes over and it doesn't look like I'm wearing slippers. My only gripe is that they have a chalky plastic-ish support in the back of the shoe that breaks easily if you bend the back of the shoe down. Once it's broken, the sharp edges cut into the fabric and create a hole, so now I have tiny pieces of broken plastic-y stuff coming out all the time. I tried putting some mole skin over the hole, but it just got all bunched up. I'm going to have to perform surgery on the shoe and rip the liner off the back so I can get all the white stuff out.

I have a wide foot with a narrow heel. Most slippers (and shoes) tend to slip at the heel for me, and these were no exception. Worse, though, was that the "wide" front was so tight across the front that, when I took them off, my big toe actually had bruising on it. (I wore them, hoping to break them in.) If your foot is really wide, I would recommend you not get these. Too bad, as they are pretty.

Brands I'd also recommend: Daniel Green Vienna slipper was much wider.

These are wonderful shoe slippers. I had tried several styles for my 91 year old mom. These are perfect, sturdy yet soft, adjustable, bendable sole, not too heavy and very well-made. I came back for a second pair in another color.
