I bought these for my elderly mother who's in a personal care home. Thanks to Zappos generous no-cost shipping, I was able to order 3 different pairs of slippers for Mom to try on. She loved the secure footing these provided. They weren't the prettiest but they were the safest. And because she was able to try on 3 pairs, she felt like she was actually shopping!

Nice and warm even without sock. Soft cushioned insole. Okay outside but doesn't wear well on pavement for walking. Great as a slipper.

Helpful to those losing eyesight - My mother-in-law is losing her eyesight, and these velcro shoes are perfect for easy closure and comfort at home. They are true to width, so did not fit my own mother who needs a wide toe box.

Cute comfort - Very comfortable with better support than most slippers. Although this style of slipper is not built with ultimate fashion in mind, the pretty material puts it above the rest!

Not the prettiest shoe but for slippers they have a lot of support and you can adjust them somewhat. I ordered my normal size but had to order a half size larger which then fit fine. They do have tread on the soles but beware that they are slippery on wet surfaces. I wore them outside to get the mail after it rained and it was like they had no tread at all. Overall I really like them - a sturdy slipper that supports your foot.

Very comfortable but runs smaller. Looks like a well made slipper, I'll be ordering a half size up.

I bought these shoes because I needed something good for my mother in physical re-hab. She has swolen feet at times and has trouble with aching tops of her feet. These shoes met her needs. I like the fact that they are washable.

Love me some Zappos! These arrived before I had read the email letting me know they had been shipped, which they were also shipped overnight. My second pair. Ordered a wide and a half size larger than I normally wear, but they are not a wide feel in the toes, especially around the larger toe.

I got these shoes for recovery after broken ankle surgery and they worked great, felt good and have good tread on them for walking. Would be great for an older person that has trouble finding stable shoes. They seemed a little on the small side, would order a 1\/2 size up.

lightweight warm slipper - This is a very comfortable shoe, and keeps the feet warm even on cold floors. The minor problems I found was that they are just a little bit short, which isn't bad, but I also had to reglue the sole on the front end of the shoe. It peeled back far enough to nearly caused me to trip. It was easily reglued, but I wanted to pass this info on.

Some doubts about Foamtreads slippers - I recently had to replace a nearly identical pair of Foamtreads slippers (different design and color) because they didn't last very long. The "sure-grip" sole peeled off after only a couple of months in spite of my wearing the slippers indoors only and giving them only very light wear. Then they began to split open in the area of the toes. It looks as if this pair of Foamtreads, which I've had for about a month now, is about to do the same thing. Already the soles are showing signs of peeling off. I expect better from a slipper that costs over $30. I will say that Zappos.com was willing to replace my first pair of defective Foamtreads with the second pair at no cost to me. That generosity is much appreciated.

Excellent practical around-the-house shoe - I wear orthotics and recently learned I need to wear them ALL the time. Hence the need for casual shoes that are big enough to take orthotics, easy to slip on and off, and comfortable. All of the above is true of these. They also solve another problem of mine -- narrow heels -- which make many shoes unworkable for me. These are fine.

Comfortable house “shoe” This is a good indoor shoe/slipper, which I feel is most comfortable with light socks. It is sturdy, with an upbeat design, good with loungewear and pajamas – perfect when doing household chores because they don’t slip off the feet, as scuff styles might do. Because I am from Florida, I will get the most use from this footwear in the winter months.

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.

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.

Bought because my feet were swollen a bit and thought strap would provide some adjustment. Strap out of alignment if foot is swollen or has a high instep.

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.

Based on the reviews, I purchased this slipper to wear after the birth of my son. I agree with the other reviews that it is important to buy a 1/2 size larger. Also, it does provide good support and traction. Perhaps the sole works well for someone who is not particularly mobile, but the sole came detached within a month of wearing it around the house. During that month, I did a lot of laps around the house trying to calm a crying baby, but it became a trip hazard within that time. Not what I expected from a slipper of this price.

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.

I really wanted these to work. I generally wear a 10.5 which few companies even make. I ordered size 11 and they were too short. Size 12 was too long. They'd be great if you can find the right size.

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.
