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.

I can't tell you how many slippers I've purchased in the last 5 years! It's embarrassing, really. So now that I've found the Foamtreads Jewel, all I have to do is hope they keep making them! The problem lies in the width. Companies will tell you it's extra wide, but if your foot can't squeeze into a slipper, it remains under your bed collecting really ugly dust bunnies.

Foamtreads Jewel - Comfy and good support. I just had reconstructive foot surgery 3 months ago and walking barefooted is not an option. You can adjust the fit to accommodate swelling.

Bought two pairs: for mother and mother-in-law. One has narrow feet, other wide. Both wear 8. Too small. I wear 7 and they were small on me. Little difference between regular and wide. Sole on thin side, not much support. Positive, they are elegant, secure on the feet, easy to slip on and off. Based on our experience, I would recommend 2 sizes larger.

I bought these for my 89 year old grandmother who is in a wheelchair. Her floors are a little slick so she needed something that would help her grip the floor so she could scoot herself around. Also one of her feet is a bit swollen. I ordered the wide just to be sure she had plenty of room. They fit her like a dream, and the tread was perfect for her needs. That being said, as she has worn the shoes and they got a bit dirty just from day to day wear they began to slip a bit. She loves the way they look and feel and has worn them every day since we got them. It was a bit urgent that we get them and Zappos came through with their free overnight shipping.

I wanted some shoes to wear exclusively inside, so that soil and slush on the shoes and boots we wear outside wouldn't get tracked about the house. These black velour Foamtreads are just what I need. They have a crossover wrap fastened with velcro that is crucial for good fit: I have a medium width foot overall but a very narrow heel, and so without some sort of laces or strap, I just walk right out of a shoe. Also, the black velour makes this shoe dressier than moccasins, slippers, or tennis shoes; so that when we have guests over I can wear nice-looking shoes that are still very comfortable. They would be even more comfortable if the Foamtreads had arch supports, but I can easily add my own. The lining is warm but not too much, and works with or without socks. As always, the service from Zappos was outstanding.

Bought these for my elderly aunt for Xmas. She has one foot that occasionally swells and since she lives in a nursing home, she rarely goes outside. She needed something adjustable, and with a non slip sole. These completely fit the bill. She typically wears a 7.5; I got her an 8 and they fit great. She thought they were perfect!

I needed new slippers that I could wear out but I wanted something that doesn\'t look like slippers. I haven\'t been able to wear regular shoes for a few months. I searched online and saw the Foamtreads. After reading the reviews and admiring the black ones I ordered 2 pairs, sizes 11 and 12 just to be sure. They arrived and I tried them on. Both fit and I have the 2 sizes in case one foot is more swollen than the other. I wore them to a party and noone ever knew! They are so comfortable! Thank you so much!

We purchased two sets of this slipper. One for my wife's mother who was in her 90's. She loved them, and the nursing home was pleased with the non slip-sole. We found out about these from a friend in another nursing home who was also very pleased with them.

These are the most comfortable slippers I have found. I have very narrow feet and slippers (and shoes) are hard to walk in without losing them. These slippers have a velcro band that lets me adjust the width to my size.

This is the third pair of Foamtreads I have purchased for my mother-in-law. She is 80 years old and has trouble with slip-on slippers. The soles of the Foamtreads ensure that she will not slip and the velcro closure allows her to adjust them for comfort and to keep them securely on her feet. She says they are so comfortable that she'd like to wear outside of her home as well!

Great slipper! Bought these for my 85 year old mother-in-law. She hasn't taken them off since she got them. They have a nice sole, with great support, but they have the comfort and feel of a slipper. I am thinking of buying another pair for my mother.

I have bought several pair of these for my mother who is in assisted living. She has difficulty walking and these have saved us many anxious moments. They are very durable and the soles are wonderful for anyone who is unstable on their feet. Thanks for a great product. We would love to have these in some different patterns or colors.

Super great slipper - First: delivered in 22 hrs from time of order - how do they do that??? Then: the comfort, support, style,, everything I hoped for. I am so glad to finally have a very comfortable slipper. Just enough heels, just enough arch, am very, very pleased. So glad I went shopping at Zappos!!

Good option for limited mobility - I bought these for my 90 something mother. Between arthritis and a bad hip, she has problems reaching her feet and has had a hard time finding slippers that are wide enough and easy to get on by herself. She had received this slipper, in a different color, for Christmas last year. These are the first slippers she has liked in years. They are perfect for daywear when indoors. They do stretch over time. Watch the soles for wear. When the treads wear down, they become slick.

Comfy slipper - I needed a slipper with a little more support than most offer. Jewel was the answer. It does run short, but the width is fully adjustable with the velcro closure. It makes a great house shoe that can be worn outside. I would get it again.

Purchased for my 100 year old mother, this is the second pair. They are comfortable for her; easy on and off; wash well, and most importantly, they provide safe "traction" for her.

Very comfortable slipper with great support. The indoor/outdoor sole is great for walking outdoors. I bought these slippers because I'm recovering from back surgery and needed something supportive and comfortable to help with my therapy, which requires a lot of walking! Thank You.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance sneakers

Finally! I ordered these for my 94 year old mother. She had a pair of terry slippers that she loved, but they have gotten pretty ragged. I tried some slippers from Footsmart, but they didn't fit right at all. She likes these! The adjustable feature works well as her feet swell sometimes and there is enough room in the toe for her to wear them comfortably. She usually kicked her slippers off when in the recliner, but she said these are so comfortable, she just leaves them on! I like the sturdy sole. My only gripe? They were not available in the color (for her size) she really wanted... I got these 1/2 size larger and one width wider than she usually wears based on the other reviews and they fit perfectly.

Great! These are great. They feel like you are wearing a pair of keds. You can wear them w/ or wo socks. They are about a half size off though...order a half size larger. Firm and squishy sole. Great. Orthotics fit in them, but mine are plastic and slide around just a bit.
