3.0 out of 5 stars Not as thrilled as I had hoped, May 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ACORN Men's Spa Slide (Apparel)
Let me say up front that I really debated between 3 or 4 stars because my experience seems to be different from the norm, and these do seem to be very nice. I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt since others seem to like them so much. I hope this review is helpful without being too critical. I acknowledge the problems could be me.

I bought these because they got good reviews. They seem well-made, and they are comfortable. However, try as I might I cannot find an adjustment that makes them stay on my feet without being careful how I walk. I can't tell if it is the design or the fluffy fabric, but they just feel a little slippery (no pun intended). Not that the sole is slippery but that my feet slide around within the slipper. I have them adjusted so the fit feels perfect, snug enough that it feels like they should stay on, but as soon as I start moving it feels like I am walking out of them. It feels like I have to be conscious of keeping my feet level when I pick them up rather than just walking normally. Maybe it's just the way I move my feet when I walk, but I think my walk is pretty normal. As another reviewer posted I sometimes feel like I am sliding off the side, which actually does happen. I ordered the Large even though I normally wear a 12 because slippers seem t run a little large. While it is possible that has something to do with it, the fit seems perfect. I could not imagine wearing a larger size. I am still wearing the slippers as I try to decide whether to try something else. I want to like them, but it should be more relaxing to walk in slippers and not have to concentrate on the simple act of walking.

I totally agree with you, I've bought the women's Spa Slide and do find the same problem. My feet slide to the sides. I tight them, but still happens the same. Nevertheless, I gotta accept I've tried Orthaheel and Isotoner slippers with not positive results in COMFORT, no sliding occurring here, but even with the sliding going on, these Acorn are far more comfortable to wear when you need comfort than the others.
