I had purchased my husband a similar pair of slippers from Overland Sheepskin Company for Christmas 2010. He loved them, but a few months ago, the weaving on the right foot slipper had given way, and his toes were protruding. Although I was disappointed that the life of the slippers had been less than 2 years when they had cost so much, I attempted to order another pair, based on the company's overall quality rating. Fortunately for me, they no longer offer slippers in the larger size that my husband needed (size 14-15), and I resorted to the internet to find an alternative. These slippers were available in my husband's size and were half the price of the Overland Sheepskin Company slippers. My husband reports that they are just as warm and comfy, so if they last at least 2 years -- which will be longer than the Overland Sheepskin slippers, I'll be a happy camper.
I bought these for my husband and he loves them! They do keep your feet ultra warm (to the point where he has had to take them off a couple times to cool off his feet), but he loves them and wears them everyday. I would highly recommend this as a gift.
