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.

These are just what the doctor ordered - the firm sole with a slight heel. I have a narrow foot so the adjustable tab is really important for me. They're hand washable and drip dry.

Unfortunately I had to return these because they felt extremely heavy and they were too small. I ordered a size bigger than my own and it was still too small., but again even if it did fit I wouldn't get them because they were way too heavy and they felt clunky on my feet. I ordered a pair of these a long time ago and I believe they made it to be a bigger size but they didn't have my size although when I tried the ones I ordered a long time ago they felt like to the seat the outer sole rubber was light yet very supportive and it felt like I was walking on clouds. Unfortunately with this new pair they were so heavy and clunky I don't know what happened the ones I ordered before were a fuchsia or more like a plum. It was also completely flat on the inside with no support whatsoever. I have flat feet and this is awful! It is literally completely flat and the insole feels hard. This is my opinion in my personal experience.

They are ok, comfortable. I think they are a bit wide. I won't reorder these. I prefer a slip on slipper and not one with Velcro tab.

This is quite attractive but runs small. I will try to get a larger size. If they had a 10.5 it would be great.

My 89 year old mother loves this slipper and a number of other Foamtreads BUT the soles don't last worth beans-maybe 3months max - it's not like she's jogging on concrete for goodness sakes. I keep buying them only because have been unable to find any other slippers she likes.

Unfortunately these had to go back. I got a different style for my mom for Christmas that was too tight across the instep, so we tried these thinking they'd be adjustable. She wears a 9.5 and I got her a 10W. Her toes were right to the edge of the 10. They don't offer a 10.5 size and the 11 would have been way too big overall. Too bad, she really liked the slippers and we both are sad they didn't fit. I'll keep looking on Zappos, though. They're great!

I bought these shoes last year for my mother who is in a nursing home. She usually wears a narrow but the medium works because she wears socks with them. She loves them. They are easy for her to put on and take off, she said they're very warm and they have a good non-slip tread. They are not the most stylish but they're great in every other way.

I bought these slippers for my 92 year old mother as shoes. She needed something very comfortable but soft. Conventional shoes just don't work anymore. These slippers are great because it gives her the structure on the sole of the slipper but is soft on the side.

I find these pretty comfortable and I am hard to please. They must run big because I should have ordered an 11 but am wearing a 10 with little problem. Next pair will try a 10.5 if possible.

I bought these for my elderly mom and she won't wear them. The sole is stiff, the label inside is irritating and they feel clumsy. All this from a little old lady who never complains about anything. Last I knew she was trying to pawn them off on another resident at the assisted living home. I had Zappos deliver direct to her and unfortunately she threw away the return label.

I have used Zappos with great success in the past. Couldn't find soft shoes anywhere for my 94-year old mother. They came very quickly and were perfect for her! You can count on Zappos! If they don't fit, they make it so easy to return!

I bought these shoes for my mother whose foot is between 8 1/2 and 9 in length. Her old clarks are 8 1/2 and fit perfectly. So I bought the 9 wide as she is getting swollen feet now. Her toe was touching the end so I am sending it back for a 9 1/2. Hope that works. They seem like a good secure shoe and are fairly easy to put on.

I listened to the reviewers who said it ran small, so I ordered a half-size larger than normal. For me, it was a mistake. I almost sent them back, but decided to try them with socks instead, and now they're perfect. With socks on, these are among the two most comfortable slippers I own, the other being a pair of the Foamtreads Coddles, which I also own. Having fibromyalgia, neuropathy and other spinal issues means my shoes and slippers have to be more comfortable to me than others might need. All in all, I love them.

I didn't even get a chance to try on the slipper to see how comfy it was or anything because I was like two sizes too small and narrow. I normally wear a 11W and this was nowhere near what I needed. Sorry.

This product was chosen after much research to be used after a total knee replacement. This is technically a slipper but looks more like a casual shoe( perfect for going out for physical therapy!) with a hard rubber sole for traction.The Velcro straps were perfect as my foot was swollen after the knee surgery. There is not a lot cushioning but they are very comfortable.I took the advice of other reviewers and did get one full size larger than what I would normally wear and the fit was perfect!

beautiful shoe but the 7-1/2 W shoe my mother normally wears does not fit her foot. She could not fit into them at all and they were never put on.
