These are fabulous! I ordered the Giesswein Inns Deer Cabin slippers for myself using a discount code and ended up buying another pair at regular STP price, as well as ordering two pairs each of this style for my husband and son -- 6 pairs of Giesswein slippers altogether. The design is attractive, the deep blue color is tasteful, the arch support is amazing, and I could go on. I am SO glad that I ordered multiples of each style, but these look and feel like they're made to last. No more made-in-China slippers for us!

These are durable enough to wear outside , and I may do so in warm dry weather , but they are so nice I want them to last , so I will stick to indoor use to avoid washing . The carmine shade is not colorfast . I have a wide foot and these slippers fit me perfectly .. a snug and comfortable cradle for my feet . I like that there is no thick fleecy lining as those tend to wear thin quickly . These are plenty warm and soft with just wool and I especially like the rubber soul- I mean , sole!! Clearly the company takes pride in their products. Glad I bought two pair .

I have had a pair of these slippers in the past that lasted 4 years of daily use 9 months a year before splitting at the seams. These new ones are terrific and just like my old pair. I wear a 6.5 and bought the European size that translates to 6/6.5. They were slightly snug the first wearing but mold well to your feet and have been perfect since then.

I've never been one to wear slippers and have always worn wool socks w/clogs around the house, but these Giessweins are such an improvement! They're the first thing on in the morning, and almost the last thing off at night. And no, I don't wear them all day, but I've stopped wearing outdoor shoes inside now and wear my new slippers instead. Note to self: Buy a second pair.

I have been a boiled wool slipper addict for about twenty years, since first trying them in Europe. These Giessweins are very good. The sole is indoor only, but has a thick layer of non-skid material, more than just the little dots you sometimes see. I got the cherry red color, which is beautiful. I've found it best with this style of slipper to aim for a snug fit on purchase, because they stretch out a fair bit in the first weeks of wear.
