I have had these for five years now, and they are still rocking as I write this review. absolutely amazing slipper. i love them. like a brother.
i amazed for a number of different reasons:
durability - like I said, i've had these for five years now, and I mean five solid years. i wear these like ski boots - 150+ days a year. they do have holes along the sole, but nothing crazy, and like I said, they've seen some use.
no stink - being as they are made out of sheepskin, they are naturally anti-microbial. if you were to take a whiff, you might notice a bit of funk, but nothing bad considering its been five years.
they are sweet. get them
Just purchased these and have initial impressions. So far so good. The quality of these are incredible. They are super comfortable and keep your feet really warm. I like how the sole is designed so that you can go outside even if there's snow or rain. I did already spill a few drops of liquid from a drink or something and they came right out. The material seems to clean very easily. Overall a very high quality, comfortable slipper. I would recommend this item. I'm size 9-9.5 and the size 9 worked perfectly for me. Pretty true to size.
Well, I just purchased a pair of these as a gift for a 72-year-old friend of mind who's diabetic and suffers from feet that are always cold. He LOVES THESE SLIPPERS!! Since putting them on for the first time last night, his own words are that his feet are "toasty warm!" And although he normally wears a men's size 11, I got him a size 12 to give him adequate toe room. He says they're a perfect fit. A happy camper indeed!!
My boyfriend was looking for a good slipper to take with him to work up in AK. I decided to splurge and spoil his feet with these for Christmas and I haven't seen him not wear them around our house basically every day since he has had them. The inside of the slipper is so soft and the sole seems to be pretty durable as well.
When I get done with work, I'm looking to put these puppies on as soon as possible, and kick back in front of the woodstove. I spend all day on my feet at work, and then I spend a lot of time trailrunning, so I feel the need to pamper my feet. These slippers do exactly that. I cannot believe how warm they are.
Like the title says. The fur on the inside does a good job of keeping the feet warm and cozy. It's even a little tough to get them waterlogged. They run a bit big some if you are between sizes go ahead and go to the smaller size.
No doubt these are some of the warmest and most comfortable things my feet have ever seen. The only downfall is they are pricey for a slipper. You can occasionally sneak them into the bar and nobody will notice ;)
I love this slipper. Perfect for indoor / modest outdoor use. Only complaint is that my dog loves to eat them, so beware! I typically wear a size 10 - 10.5 shoe, and the size 10 fits perfectly.
Imagine wrapping your feet in silky bubble wrap then walking on clouds all day.......thats how these feel. So soft and warm, and out of control baller after a day of skiing!
Very warm , perfect for cold weather
I decided to get these slippers because my wife got a pair of the Emu Stingers and I saw how comfortable they looked. Th slippers are quite comfortable, but they do not seem to be made with the same quality sheepskin as the boots are made from... it is not as plush. If it matters to anyone these are not Australian made like the boots, they are Made in China (what isn't made there these days). If Backcountry gets the Emu men's Stinger Mini's in stock, I will be considering returning these slippers and exchanging them for the Stingers as they seem like they would make a much more comfortable slipper.
As for the size, I am typically between an 8-9 depending on the brand of shoe. Everyone on here that said the slipper ran on the small side had me nervous but I went with an 8 and they are actually a little loose (but a smaller size wouldn't fit.) So IMO I would say they are true to size.
