Top critical review
A sad waste of time, money and effort!

Maybe its me, but I really do wonder why nobody at Dunlop wears the very slippers they make. If they did, I would not have had this problem!
Like many others, I had a pair of slippers which lasted for years but was unable to find anything similar when they finally lost the will to live. It’s now been just over 12 months since their funeral and these were my fourth (or fifth?) purchase in that time.
It was because the name Dunlop is associated with tyres and other 'strong' rubber products that I expected great things and my initial thoughts were certainly positive. They retailed at a reasonable price, were really comfortable and easy to put on and, at the age of 70, my feet get further away every year.
After 2 days wear, however, they began to feel uncomfortable. The soft insole was already separating and riding up to collect under my feet. It was like having a roll of hard paper or soft card tucked under your toes. There was no way the “soft fur insole” was going to retain any of its softness once glue was applied so I came up with another solution.
I purchased a pack of “Anti Odour Insoles For Shoes.” These come in a single large size to be cut down to suit your own requirements. I also bought a 30 ml tube of “Shoe Fix Repair Glue.” Total for both purchases: £4.58.
Having replaced the original insole with my new purchase, I now had a pair of slippers which, like the ones they finally replaced, should have lasted for years.
At 'that' point in time, I gave the product a 3 Star rating - saying "2 Stars lost for Not paying attention to detail!" Then, after another 4 weeks I wrote the following:
PS: After another 4 weeks they became the most uncomfortable pair I have ever worn. So the problem was not resolved after all. I have now downgraded my original rating from 3 Stars to One and I'm back to looking for a decent pair of slippers all over again.
So, in order to complete this sad little tale, I would like to inform any potential buyer that my Dunlop Slippers were finally consigned to the dustbin on 3 July 2020 - exactly 50 days after they were delivered. What a sad waste of time, money and effort they really were!
