Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Propet Men's Trapper Slipper (Shoes)
Others have said these run large. My experience is different. I'm a 10 6E but the only slippers I've found in that size are by Old Frend. But they are ridiculously overpriced and wear out in about three months. These are better ciostructed but I found size 10 to be painfully tight. With size 11 I still had to cut and retie the side stitching and loosen and retie the drawstring. Like most wide shoes, it seems that only the top of the shoe is actually wide. The soles don't seem to have been widened to match. That means that too much standing or walking can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful. But they are better than anything else I have found.
Maybe someday some manufacturer will offer a true fitting wide shoe for those of us who need it.

You need a lesson in politeness and in how to not enter a discussion with irrelevant contributions.

Well said my friend! I wear a size 12 6E..and the only slipper I could find was also by Old Friend..although mine was only in 5E as I didn't see them carrying the 6E I needed. And as you reported..the shoe didn't last very long..and mine developed holes in the heels of the soles..and the stitching slowly started coming undone on the sides. If you happen to find a slipper in 6E..please message me. I can't even find a sneaker in 6E for under $100! I have found Propet shoes in 5E bearable..but those were regular shoes and not a slipper. The slipper I am using now is called The Solution and it's on the Buck & Buck website. It's not pretty..nor does it have any real cushioning..but at least you can adjust it for our wide feet and it will keep your feet warm from a cold floor. I have it in size Large and it fits just fine. Take care.
