Although some may consider these shoes to be slippers, I use them as outside shoes. Over the course of 3 months -- in winter snow, ice & other wet weather -- they are holding up to outside elements (I did not wear them in deep snow - only when there 1/4" or less) and not falling apart.
The shoes are also super comfortable and mold to your feet. They do not get too hot and, while I can easily slip my feet in & out of the shoe, they stay on my feet when walking. I wear them with all different types of socks - thin & thick.
They are OK in the arch-support department - some arch support, but not a lot. If you require a lot of arch support, you may want to take a pass.
Cleaning seems relatively easy. I have had to clean mud spots & just used a damp cloth. I have not dealt with a stain, but mine are a dark color.
Size: I normally wear an 8-1/2. I tried an 8-1/2 in the store & it seemed a little small, so I went with a 9 (because of socks).
Overall, the online pricing seems fairly comparable to local pricing, especially taking taxes into consideration.
2/25/11: almost through another winter & these shoes are still going strong. The only thing that I'd change is to not put the furry band on the top of the shoe so that they would be more shoe-like. However, that doesn't stop me from wearing them outside (& everywhere).
The inside is lined in faux fur, which is very cozy and keeps your feet warm. It does wear out after a while, but even so, the shoes are still wearable - just not as soft.
The cable knit is a really nice touch - a little different than the suede you usually find similar styles of shoes in.
I've had these well over a year and they are still in great shape.
I was worried that the knit would snag, but it hasn't.
I admit, I wear this sort of shoe most often with no socks. And, last fall when these shoes were about 6 months old, we were getting ready to move and I wore them EVERY single day - for about 6 weeks - with no socks while packing up, moving, unpacking, etc. They took a lot of abuse and still held up really well. (They were sweaty - yuck - but I washed/dried them on low and let them finish air drying and they turned out fine.)
A year later, they are still holding up great, and I wear them often. I am going to buy another pair in another color.
They are pretty true to size - I usually wear a 9.5 or (somewhat more often) a 10 and a 10 in these fits perfectly, with a thin sock or no sock.
Update, March 2013: I've had these shoes for about 3 years now, and they are still going strong!
I'm not sure when the definition of slipper changed, but these are not slippers. To me a slipper is something that you wear around the house. These are shoes. Like most Sketchers they have a heavy bottom so wearing them to do chores around the house feels like your walking with lead on the bottoms of your feet. Also, they are *not* comfortable without socks. The faux fur on the inside isn't soft and it wouldn't take long of wearing it barefoot for it to get matted and gross. Also, there is no arch support inside and it's also hard.
I would not suggest these as slippers, because they aren't. I also wouldn't wear them as normal shoes. Finally, make sure you go up sizes, because they were far too tight.
