Top critical review
Not as hoped for
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 December 2019
I bought these slippers after reading the rave reviews, and I have to say I don't understand why they are rated so highly. Most people say that they find these slippers oversized, but if anything I found them to be slightly undersized, I normally take a size ten but found them quite tight. While I'm sure that they would stretch over time, they were too tight to be comfortable enough for me to find out. The sole is rigid, not what I expect from an indoor shoe, and does not flex to bend with the foot so it is a bit like walking with clogs on. The felt fabric, while it may be made from old shopping bags or whatever, is uncomfortable and rough to touch - think similar to the old fashioned carpet bags of yesteryear. And the final reason why I returned these, the height of the heel is pointless, neither a true slip-on nor a proper heel grip. Walking in them sounds like having two lengths of floor board strapped to your feet as they flap around at the heel end, if you are paranoid you'd swear someone was following you. Overpriced and over engineered, pointless.
