Two different sizes were ordered + I decided to keep both, since the slippers are warm + what I expected. I appreciate they are made from wool + leather and handmade in Nepal.

The size indicated that this shoe would be my size (a 36) or bigger. It was not; my toes were hitting the front end of the shoe.

I actually love the shoe. Wear it in and out of the house. But the top of the shoe does put pressure on my foot. I was hoping it would break in over time - but it did not stretch. If you do not have a high instep then you should be fine.

I bought these booties to keep my feet warm in the house this winter, so I have not worn them for any significant amount of time yet. These seem like they will ideal to keep feet warm against cold floors, and I think I may bring them to put on when I go to someone else's house and take off my street shos or boots.

Pros: They are silent on all flooring... softish bouncy comfort despite no inner padding... do no come off on stairs. Cons: I can get them on with thinner socks, but they are warm without the need for thicker. The top fit is very snug and would have preferred looser. I wear 6 1/2 and bought the 6-6 1/2.

I wanted to love these. The excellent handmade quality, the felted wool, the navy color was excellent, BUT they were too small and I would have preferred a soft lining. I returned.

These are excellent slippers! They fit great and are very comfortable. I’ve only worn them for a short period of time, so I’m hoping that they will continue to be comfortable

Love these slippers. The first pair I ordered was my normal size but they were a bit small. Zappos was very prompt with my exchange.

I really wanted to love these slippers, but they just were not comfortable for my feet. The wool was a nice texture, and the soles did not feel slippery on my non-carpeted floors. But if I stood up in them for long, my heels started hurting. Not from the slipper rubbing or scratching but just from the hardness of the material under them, I think. I need some more support or cushion in the soles than these had. Size wise, I usually wear around a 7.5 women's. I first ordered a 38, which was what the size chart showed for my foot length, but those were too tight. I could just barely get them on my feet. So do pay attention when it says to go up a bit from your actual measurement. The 39 was a better size, but still not as comfy as I wanted.

These are a great lower cost alternative. I will know more how they hold up after using for a while.

If you have a higher instep may be a little tight, I do wear a wide and the width is perfect but instep slightly tighter than I would normally like, material should stretch after frequent wear though

The Baabushka slipper felt great right out of the box. I purchased the felted grey color so that I could pin on the felted "rose corsages" from my previous pair of handmade felted slippers. With the added decoration, I feel like I'm wearing Marie Antoinette slippers. (And, unlike my previous pair of handmade felted slippers, I'm hopeful that the leather bottom that is added to these slippers will make them last longer.)

I love my slippers! The suede bottoms are so quiet on my wood floors, but are not slippery. I can't wait to put them on my feet after a long day at work. So comfortable!

I love these slippers but they wore out in less than 6 months. The sole is coming unstitched and separated from the sole. They fit true to size and the arch support is just right for me.

I initially ordered up a size based on a review which was a mistake. They were flopping off my feet. Wool will relax and mold to your foot so I exchanged and am much happier with the 7.5-8 fit (my usual shoe size is 8). The sole is curved which takes a little time to get used to; they didn’t feel stable at first. Much quieter and lighter than my previous Haflinger wool clogs and cozy warm. Arch support is just enough but maybe inadequate for someone needing Haflinger or Birkenstock level support.

Warm, comfy and even thicker than my worn out Wesenjak boiled wool slippers. The listing stated they’re made of New Zealand wool, but the tag inside states handmade of Nepalese wool in Nepal. Great slippers!

These are very cute and well made slippers and I love the feel of the wool on my feet. Very good arch support for slippers. Unfortunately this seem to run a bit large/wide so I had to return. I will definitely try this company again.

These are well made and the arch support is substantial. They are cute and stylish and I want a pair in every color. My one concern is related to size. I ordered my size and with socks on they fit great. They slide off the back of my heel not unlike Dansko clogs. As a nurse, this wasn’t unusual. My only concern is if they should stretch they would be too big. Time will tell!

Very strange fit. Somehow these slippers feel as if the foot beds are in backwards or inside out. I get no arch support and instead the outer flat portion of my feet are being pushed up. Returning. I do appreciate that these come with no box but that leaves them in plastic wrap (for some reason with their own cloth bag??) inside a plastic mailer. I’m not sure about the trade off environmentally. I would reuse the box but the plastic is just trash.

I've had these for a few weeks now and they're prone to pilling and shedding. The are also very narrow and take a week or two to stretch. The Glerups I had before these were much better made - of tighter, thicker felt, and lasted me over two years of daily wear. I doubt these will last me 9 months. My advice is to spend the extra $25 and get the Glerups. They're much better made, better fit, and will last significantly longer. I may just end up exchanging these for a pair of Glerups instead.
