To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Initially when the slippers arrived I was very pleased, how wrong was I after 2 months of wearing in the house the right slipper has come apart. (see photo) I bought them at 19.99 and believe they should last longer than 2 months. I try to buy leather slippers like Clarkes at £30 plus but so, so disappointed at £20 slippers. Quality not very good.
Over the last 2 years I have bought no less than 6 pairs of slippers off both Amazon and ebay. All proved to be at best poor to really awful. However, after reading the reviews left about these slippers, I decided to purchase. I've only had them for a few days now but, I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with them. They are very comfortable and keep my feet warm. I did order one size larger than my normal shoe size which was probably a wise move as my normal shoe size may have proved too tight. If you're looking for well made, comfortable slippers that keep your feet warm, I would most certainly recommend them.
I have given up trying to buy shoes or slippers on line. I am not sure if they are all made in China but for some reason the size stated is never the UK size. I have bought a few slippers and shoes on line but the size is never as stated and normally reviews say by one or two sizes bigger than you are which is then a gamble. I am a 10 so bought a 10. They are more like an 11. The lacing around the edge came undone after 2 days and a real pain to try and thread back through so I ended up cutting them off which made them more loose fitting so it sounds like I have flip flops on. No more on line shoe shopping for me and will go to a proper shop where I can try them on first.
Slightly on the bigger size but not by enough that I felt the need to return them. Very warm slippers and comfortable. Good for external use even on damper ground with the rubber soles extending up the sides of the slipper.
They got smelly very quickly which I put down to the amount of warmth they provide. I always wear socks with slippers to try and prevent them from smelling too much but this only adds to the warmth (sweat pit) in the slipper. Lose - lose situation really.
The upper has become separated from the sole after almost exactly a year of normal use. I did wear these slippers a lot but they still shouldn't be falling apart after just a year. Had to downgrade my review. For the first few weeks they are incredibly comfy and soft, but over time the fur lining becomes kind of matted and uncomfortable, and the actual body of the slipper has warped and become less snug which makes them less comfortable.
I’ve only owned these slippers for a week, and they seem sturdy and well made. The rubber sole is thin but seems hard wearing, and they have a thick furry lining, so are very warm. Unfortunately it seems this thickness hasn’t been accounted for when sizing, and they are very tight. I am a UK 9 in a normal show and ordered a UK 9 slipper, but I practically need a shoehorn to get the slippers on, and my toe is hard up against the front of the slipper. I’m hoping that over time these will ease off a bit, but if I was buying them again I’d definitely get a 10, and would advise anyone buying to choose a size above their normal.
