I love these shoes. I recommend them to anyone who has trouble with their feet. I have rheumatoid arthritis and suffer from joint pain in my feet. Haflinger clogs make it bearable, unlike other shoes that make my feet hurt worse. I wear them from fall through Spring. I would also recommend them to anyone who has to be on their feet for a long period of time. They are warm and extremely comfortable.

I ordered these shoes based on the comfort of a pair of Haflinger slippers I own. I ordered a size 38 (I normally wear a 39) after reading the reviews that I had read about the shoe running large. They were not only large, they were huge! I made the mistake of wearing them with a very thick pair of socks out of doors and can't return them. They are so wide that I can barely keep them on my feet and I have a wide foot. Even with an extra insole in them they are too floppy. Additionally, the stitching inside is rough and irritating. Big mistake on my part!

I've had my Haflingers for at least six years now and they look good as new. other felted shoes have developed weak spots and eventually needed to be replaced, but these slippers have held up and haven't broken or pilled. They are great to wear around the house and I occasionally wear them outside and to run a quick errand. A great shoe/slipper.

Yes! comfortable, supportive arch, cork sole, soft wool upper all met my demands for a comfortable supportive slipper around the house. Nice neutral look and 39 for my usual size 9 foot worked.

This is my 3rd pair. My winter slippers. Couldn't live without them. Real sole means I can step out to get the paper or go to the corner store, though primary purpose is comfortable, cozy, slip-on house shoe. They have the look of an orthopedic shoe...but who cares? They feel great!

This slippers have excellent support and feel more like shoes than slippers, but they were comfy right away, and are getting more comfortable the longer I wear them.

I wear this shoe as the world's best house slipper. I have flat feet, which causes my feet to roll inward and my second toe to pile up on my big toe. This does not happen with these because the cork sole is supportive and puts the missing arch in my foot. That said, the sizing is inconsistent. I agree with the commenter who said that. I bought a size 40 at a shoe store, which fit perfectly. However, the size 40 I ordered online was too short and the 41 I returned it for is too long. This is disappointing when I thought I had such a great solution for flat feet. Meanwhile I keep wearing my raggedy originals, which are still awesome. I take my work shoes off and put these on in the evening. It feels as good as a glass of wine!

Super comfy Haflinger fit. Will always be my go-to shoe! These work great in the winter with thick socks because the fit is a a bit roomier in the toe bed than the classic Grizzly.

This is my third pair of shoes this style and I love them. My only problem is that with the leather trim, they're not loosening up as much as the ones I have without trim and with the ribbon trim. No problem, though. I just don't wear socks! I figure they'll loosen up eventually. In terms of size, I knew what to order because I already had the other two pairs.

My son has a pair and recommended these. I bought these to wear inside instead of slippers. Great arch support and very comfortable. They fit perfectly with my cotton athletic socks but a are little large with thinner dress socks.

Just received these for Christmas, found they are a little snug but will stretch to conform to my foot. I am hoping that these will hold up in snow. These are probably my 6 pair. All my others with the exception of one pair have held up well in the snow.

These shoes are my husband's all-time favorites for wearing around the house, but they can also be worn outdoors in nice weather. The leather trim makes the heel feel a little bit firmer than the regular trim, which he likes.

I compared Haflinger, Stegman, Orthaheel, and Birkenstock wool felt clogs when looking for a winter slipper with good arch support for my injured foot. The Haflingers and Birkenstocks were the most expensive but were both very high quality construction. The Birkenstocks have a colder, harder leather/cork sole and open heel, so I chose the softer, wool-soled, closed-heeled Haflinger Grizzly for its warmth and slightly better looks. After a month of use I am very happy with my choice. The Haflingers provide excellent arch support, are very warm and comfortable, and I believe are the most true to size of the bunch. I have a very high instep on one foot that is always hard to fit and it was tight there at first, but after a few weeks the Haflingers stretched just enough to conform and become comfortable on that pressure point. The wool felt on the Haflingers is substantially thicker than the others, which makes them stiffer when bending or kneeling - but they're very solid underfoot for walking or standing. A very nicely made, quality product - a good value for the money.

Brands I'd also recommend: Birkenstock, if you want a clog with wider fit, easy to slip on and off

I have always worn a size 38 in Haflinger clogs and I own 3 pairs that I bought from Zappos a few years ago. This new pair is much too small. I see now that the sizing states that a 38 is a U.S. size 7. It used to be a U.S. size 8. Does anyone know when this changed?

These are the most comfortable shoes you can imagine. And they don't have to be broken in, although they become possibly even more comfortable after you've worn them for a while. I'm on my third or fourth pair, and they last a really long time.

I really like these shoes! I only recently discovered this brand, and they are really great. Very well made. I got the charcoal, and it's a nice color, very dark gray, almost black. I am between a size 7 and 7.5, and the 38 is pretty much an exact fit to the millimeter, so they run a bit small. I might prefer another half inch of room, but I think the 39 will be too big. I will keep them happily. Zappos delivered quickly as usual! Love Zappos!

I got these and I love them. Arch support for days! My partner kept razzing me, "Oh, you and your hundred-dollar slippers and I finally said, Look. Try them on. He did. Oh my God! and he said arch support. I want a pair. Now he has a pair of his own. Size wise I am a 13 and I wear a 46 in these. They do fit tight at first, but the eventually stretch out a bit. I can't wait to go home so I can put them on after work, but I do wear them out of the house sometimes, to walk the dog or zip over to the co-op.

Just got my clogs today. I usually wear a size 11, and the 44 seems a bit snug. Maybe they just need breaking-in. Also, the charcoal is a darker gray than in the video -- almost black.

I am satisfied with the shoes and (as always) the quick shipment from Zappos. The shoes are very warm and comfy. There is a minor stitching problem where a thread loop is coming undone, but I will wait to see if it worsens before I consider exchanging.

Liked the style, look, and feel, but the size is a bit big, and the clog fits too loosely. I will return and order a smaller size.

I'm now on my second pair of Haflingers, and can attest to the quality of these slippers. The first pair lasted nearly 3 years of near-everyday use. The wool is thick, but it's such a good insulator that these slippers are as comfortable in the summer as the winter. They're reasonably lightweight, and the tread provides good grip for trips outdoors (and even the occasional quick trip to the store). These are very comfortable slippers. They have a very supportive arch, a bit like Birkenstocks, although more comfortable to my feet. I don't care for the feel of the label that's sewn in under the arch/heel, but it can be removed without much trouble. After three years, the wool on my last pair is beginning to separate from the cork foot bed, although they're still holding together. How great are these slippers? My wife - even though her feet are smaller than mine - has claimed my old slippers, because even falling apart they're still "the comfiest ever."

This is my first purchase from Zappos but the service could not have been better. This is my second pair of Haflinger Grizzlies and the price was as reasonable as I could find. These shoes were recommended by my podiatrist and I wore my last pair out over 3-4 years. I am really pleased with these clogs.
