Love the look and feel of the slippers. I am a little concerned about the thinness of the rubber soles at the heel and at the toes. You can actually see the boiled wool showing through. I have another pair of Giesswein Ammern slippers that only lasted 2 months before the heel area had worn through. I contacted Zappo's and they graciously replaced them. The soles on the second pair lasted about 3 months before wearing through. These new Lunz slipper soles are identical so I'm not very hopeful that they will be long lasting. That said, both pairs are so comfortable I have not given up on them. I bought a can of liquid rubber called Plastic Dip. I plan to coat the shoe soles so that they will last longer. I would think that how I walk causes the premature wearing, but I have Acorn slippers that have lasted 3+ years with no problem. Even the soles of my old Walmart slippers lasted longer. If Giesswein would just double the thickness of the coating, the slippers would be outstanding - full 5 stars. At $100 to $140+ a pair, I believe they should last at least one year. I just bought a pair of Veitch because they have a sturdier sole. I like them, but they are not as comfy as either the Ammern or the Lunz. The innersole is leather which doesn't feel as good on bare feet as the boiled wool innersole. I will probably wear socks with them. I've read a few reviews that stated folks washed their slippers on gentle. I washed my Ammerns on gentle and air dried. The seam around the top edges at the heel frayed out. They are still wearable, just a little ratty looking. I will definitely hand wash in the future.

Tried them on and walked around the house. They feel wonderful on my feet, like walking on air. They stay on my feet without pinching or squeezing and are very pretty. I won’t wear full time until it gets a little cooler. Gave them 4 stars because they are extremely pricey. I’m hoping they last a few years.

I was super excited about this shoe but sadly I had to return it. The show itself is wonderful but it is too large and it is a very heavy shoe. I had to pull the strings up very high for it to secure onto my narrow foot, and even in doing that, they still tended to fall off. However, they DO have EXCELLENT arch support! This shoe would work best with a wider foot!

These shoes are THE BEST shoes to wear in the house or going outside for a quick walk. I've been looking for a shoe that doesn't feel like it's weight on my foot, but also feels like it won't slip off and these ones are the perfect match! The sleek look of the shoe also is a huge plus because it makes my foot look smaller than it actually is! GREAT ARCH SUPPORT!

Arch support was good as advertised but somehow the rest of shoe was not quite stable enough so walking comfort was not there. The wool was nice and soft. Have had Haflinger brand which is similar but they somehow have made the overall stability better so more comfort in walking.

These slippers were great in every way *except* that they ran way large. I usually wear 6 or 6-1/2 and have wide feet. I figured a 6 in these would be snug or just right. They fell off my feet so that I couldn't even take a proper step! Unfortunately, there are no smaller sizes so back they go!

Love these things. My second pair. I wear them in summer and winter. I typically wear a 7.5 but had to go smaller with these..37.

These were very cute - even my husband thought so! They are the kind of slipper you'd wear all day. however, I needed more of a slipper to come on and off quickly so I'm opting for a mule-slip in style.

These are the best. I've been dealing with awful plantar fasciitis all summer and I bought these as my new house shoes/slippers since they were enclosed and seemed to offer good support. They are a LIFESAVER. So comfortable out of the box and have made my sad feet so much happier with great arch support. I think they'll be warm and cozy for winter, too, but I have fairly narrow feet and could easily add a thin- to medium-weight sock. They are really comfortable without socks, though, and definitely breathe well. I won't be buying any other type of slipper from here on out. Also, they don't make your feet look gigantic. I hate that look in clogs, and while not exactly compact, these aren't like wearing boats on your feet. They ALMOST border on cute. Almost. For a supportive shoe. The plum color is a really lovely deep magenta. I adore these and so far find the craftsmanship entirely worth the price - I just wish I could afford a second pair for outside use.

Fabulous slippers. However, for my narrow feet I had to add insoles (wool) and cinch them up using the drawstring. Unfortunately, the drawstring doesn't stay tight, so I'm still working on a solution for that. Still, despite the fact that they do slip a bit on the heels, I love them and am keeping them. I sometimes use them as slides by letting the back fold down as another reviewer suggested. I do wish Geisswein would make slippers for those of us with skinny feet, though.

Nice slippers. However if you have a narrow foot, they probably won't work for you. That's why I sent them back. They have decent arch support, but not as much as the Vent style, which IMO is better for narrow feet because you can add insoles to it.

Stiff. I wear an orthodic. The shoe is not orthodic friendly. I cannot wear them without socks. I’m keeping these shoes and hope that they will stretch as I wear socks and my orthodics.

The fit is true to size, they are cozy and warm and come in different designs so there is something for everyone!

These slippers look great and having read the reviews I was prepared for some aggressive arch support but I've never felt so much pressure in my arch. I have to assume that there are people for whom this feels good and if you're one of them these may be great for you. They seem extremely well built and they're far better looking than other slippers. That said, I've got to send them back and find a slipper that doesn't have such a high arch.

The arch is in the wrong place and the soles are flimsy. I was expecting a lot more for the price. I have wide feet, and these slippers were wide on me. They'd be nice with two pairs of thick wool socks. The wool is nice and they're definitely cute, but no worth the price.

Exactly what I was looking for. Supports my foot, looks nice, and doesn't overheat my feet.

The slipper is very heavy and a little short in the toe area. I usually wear a size 7 1/2 and ordered the US size 8, the next size up would have been to big. I have chronic Achilles Tendonitis and the weight of this slipper was uncomfortable. Guess my daughter will get another pair of my rejects. I have been looking for a very light weight slipper with really good heel support and arch support. And so far have not been successful.

this slipper is very comfortable and cute style but I have purchased it twice (once the Spital style and the other the Lunz style-) and I have changed my mind not to buy these again. The stitching is ALWAYS coming apart at the front of the shoe. I even sized up thinking this was a problem and not, same problem. I emailed the company and they were no help- told me to try another style. This happened to my previous pair 3 months after wearing(Lunz - same style different color and flower design). Too expensive for this kind of quality problem and no customer service from Giesswein!
