Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Slippers International Men's Perry Slipper (Apparel)
Unlike most of the reviewers of this product, I am not a wife who got these slippers for her husband who immediately said they were comfy and warm. I got them for myself and I am their primary user.
The slippers are very, very comfortable. The faux fur inside is incredibly soft. Their shoe-like shape makes it so my heels don't freeze and keeps the slippers from falling off, but they don't slip on immediately. It takes a little bit of toe wiggling to get my feet all the way in without the use of my hands, which, straight out of bed in the morning, is how I prefer to put them on.
The soles are rubber, which means that they are both durable (enough so to walk on cement) and, as far as I can tell, waterproof. I wouldn't walk in puddles or in snow, but stepping on a wet driveway won't hurt them. They work perfectly for walking outside to get the mail or the paper.
They do fit a little loose, despite what an all-caps-using reviewer said. I'm a size 13 and I think that I would have been better off buying size 12s for snugness. They still fit, and I certainly won't return them, but they are a little loose. I can easily fit a few fingers behind my heel in them, and they flop a bit when walking.
My biggest problem with the slippers is that they might be too warm. They really don't breathe at all, and without paying for any sort of breathable-but-warm material technology, I suppose I shouldn't complain. But with extended wear, especially if I'm not in a freezing environment, my feet get really sweaty, at which point I'd just as soon not wear the slippers.
Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and will gladly keep the slippers until they wear through, which I don't expect to be any time soon.

Thanks for your review - the things you mentioned, especially being able to walk out and get the mail or paper - is EXACTLY what my husband said he wants in a slipper, that and the other obvious reasons. I just purchased these online today so hopefully he'll feel the same way. His feet get especially cold so maybe the extra warmth will work for him....thanks again!

Thanks for your helpful review. Like you, I am a size 13 but need a wide. I'm currently hunting for new slippers because my current ones are not breathable, which makes for sweat feet, which then makes for cold feet, and rather defeats the purpose (no pun intended). Thanks for the tip on these not breathing well. Sadly I'll have to pass them up.

very nice and thorough review! They might be a bit warm for SoCal...but sound good.
