Information about Acorn Giselle Moc Slippers - Boiled Wool (For Women)
Closeouts. Give something back to those hardworking feet by slipping them into Acorn's Giselle moc slippers. The upper is made of cozy boiled wool and is lined throughout with sensationally soft Berber fleece lining.
Practical and more attractive than most of the frumpy ugly slippers out there. Wished I ordered a size up as I usually wear heavy socks around the house in winter with my slippers, but when I went back it was sold out in my color. The slipper is true to size. Am still on the hunt for a sophisticated/elegant slipper though.

I normally take a size 7 in the Acorn slippers, but these were very tight,
especially in the front. This seems to be a quite common issue with the Acorn slippers - not enough space for your toes.
(Compare with Clark's slippers which have a nice wide toe box.) The other problem was the heel. Maybe because of the thick
fleece in the bottom, the heel part was very shallow and did not grip my heel even in the size 7. The size 8 had the same heel problem. So sadly enough, both pairs had to go back.
What I really like are Acorns with the kind of sole that these slippers do have. The suede with patches of rubbery material.
The sole on these do not catch on carpeting. Full rubber soles can catch - and make you stumble.

Great supportive slipper but the sizing is off. I wear an 8 and that's what I ordered but it was too big. The shoe bed has great arch support though so if you need a slipper that feels like a shoe with a supportive sole this is the brand to go with for that.

If you have had boiled wool slippers before, you know they are super comfy and last a long time. The reason is that the boiled wool shapes to your foot. The wool wicks any sweat, and so your feet feel dry and comfortable. When these Acorn slippers arrived, I thought i would never get my feet in them. Tight everywhere. Before giving up on them, I started wearing them a little at a time for perhaps five minutes. They are now becoming more comfortable and I know that eventually they won't look all that attractive, but they will be super comfortable. I am at the point that I detest synthetic plush. These have lambswool inside, and boiled wool outside.
The only drawback is their rather incomplete sole. If you live where it rains, I would not recommend going out to get the paper in these.
Hi! The outside is boiled wool, the side lining (inside) is a flat terry and the footbed is close-sheared sheepskin (more like wool, not real fluffy). I thought from the styling that these would have some support, but as soon as I stepped into them my feet supernated (rolled outside). Too bad as they are really pretty. Perhaps I got them too big. Hope this helps!
