Unbelievably comfortable--but fragile,
This review is from: Baffin Unisex Cush Insulated Slipper (Shoes)
Other reviewers' criticisms of the Baffin Cush slippers are essentially correct:
1. They are not particularly well made: the tightening string on my second pair broke within hours (but the slippers fit fine without the string, so I decided to keep them), and the stitching gives out quickly.
2. They wear quickly: the bottom layers of mine started to shred after a couple of months, though it seems that the inner layer (the "sleeping bag") holds up a bit better.
3. They are not suitable for extended outside use: the design provides almost no protection or cushioning for your soles from stones, nails, rough pavement.
4. They look a little silly: you might not want to welcome company in these, and Hugh Hefner might want to wear something more stylish with his high-fashion pajamas.
5. And the sizes do seem to run VERY small: I wear a size 9 men's shoe but I found the Large to be uncomfortably snug on my feet, and traded them in for XL (!) which I love.
NEVERTHELESS: despite all the reservations, these are BY FAR the most comfortable slippers I have ever owned, and they are absolutely perfect for the main uses to which I put them. I work in a home office, and I can wear my Cush slippers almost all day, while I am sitting at my desk and padding around the house or watching TV and reading to my son in the evening. They are really quite luscious. At the proper price, I am perfectly happy to get a new pair or 2 every 6 months or so.

I wear mine most days around the house and sometimes on the concrete walk and gravel driveway. Took me a year to wear a hole, but someone recommended Shoe Goo to reduce wear and maintain grip. You might try that, since you too love these slippers.
