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 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!

Size is good. Worked well for my mom in a nursing home. She is in a wheelchair, so she can wear these when she goes out, and still be comfy.

These are very nice slippers. I am sure they would work well for most people. However, due to my arthritic feet, I found they did not have enough support for me. Nice looking and can be worn inside or out. Seem to be well-made.

I won't be buying another slipper with a velcro strap for closing. Thought it would help make the slipper more snug as I have a narrow foot, but the opening and closing of the velcro was quit tiresome every time I wanted to get in or out of the slipper. It is comfortable and kinda cute for a slipper through.

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.

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.
