You know I loved these when they arrived. Very comfortable, and good size ( I took advice on here to get a slightly smaller than normal and this worked perfectly).
To be clear, I wore these indoors only, usually about an 1-2hrs every weekday, and weekends maybe 4-6 hrs those days.
However after about 3 months there started to appear severe wearing of the soles. Within 4 months there was clear holes. But I stuck with them as I was still thinking perhaps this would be as bad as they would get. However the holes became much worse. My toddler would find it hilarious to stick her fingers into the soles to touch my feet.
Within 8 months, they soles looked like the attached photos, with the insides having exploded out of the holes fully. I could no longer ignore the uncomfortable holes - it was now unbearable difficult and uncomfortable to wear.
As I had been a fan of these at the start, I did try my best to make them usable, but no joy. I also avoided posting a review as I hate just jumping on a seller because of one bad experience. These things can happen. However to only get a few months out of a pair of slippers is really poor quality, and this is what I would warn those buying these in the future....Nothing else - just be prepared that you won't get a long life out of them. My wife has a pair of slippers for 12 years, still as good as the day she got them.
I decided to contact the seller to give them a chance of helping me to find a solution...to be honest I wasn't expecting much, just a token partial refund or something fair.
They told me to contact amazon, as it was Amazon whom sold them.
I contacted Amazon, who told me to contact the seller as it was out of the shockingly short return window.
I explained to Amazon, that seller had told me to contact them, and that look I just wanted some acknowledgment of the wasted money I had put in...For both seller and Amazon to pass me around without either having the ability or interest to help me, was further disappointing tbh.
So I wrote this review, genuinely with the interest of really giving a light warning to anyone buying - Ask yourself if you are okay with the price based on a very short lifespan. Perhaps I was very very unlucky, but the demise of these slippers was so rapid and so devastating, that I doubt it.
Save your money and buy a pair with a longer warranty, or from a more trusted brand name.
