BEST Slippers for Old, Bad Feet- TEN STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
on September 17, 2012
I have been wearing these slippers for about 15 years now. I am a disabled senior with very bad feet and have test tried dozens of house slippers and these were the ONLY ones that I could wear comfortably and happily. I go through about 2 pairs a year and wear them from 8-12 hours a day although I am not always on my feet! I don't know what I would do without them. If I try to walk barefoot, with socks on, or with other types of slippers, my feet hurt terribly and I feel as if I will fall. These Acorn slippers really grip your feet AND the floor. The velcro and the excellent arch support are my favorite features. The Velcro fasteners keep them from falling off when you walk and also adjust to the shape of your feet. By the way, I have never had a pair that the Velcro wore out on even after being machine washed! The soles are very durable and have good treads. You can wear them in your yard. I wouldn't suggest wearing them to the grocery store:)
They are also warm in the winter with plushy socks. I wear them with cotton socks in the summer. The insoles are made of memory foam and take months of daily wear to lose their thickness. Best for me, someone with pronated arches, they have a high, supportive arch support. I buy the Natural color which matches everything! These wonderful slippers are well worth the price and thank you Amazon, for the discount! I don't know what I would do without these slippers. I hope that the Acorn company never stops making them. Highly recommended for seniors or anyone with foot issues and especially for house-bound people who wear slippers around the house on a daily basis.
