Pros: Rubber sole makes it quite durable and grippy. Very comfortable and keeps my feet warm.
Cons: The cushion becomes rather flat really quickly. After wearing these for a few hours a day, the cushion has become noticeably flat after just a month of wear. I also wish it would grip my heel a little more. I'm not a sandal guy and don't like it when my shoes flop around. Size 7.5-8.5 S was definitely too small for me, so that's not the issue.
If a friend asked me about them, I would tell that friend to buy it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend this product.
Update - 1.5 Years Later - Update
After about 1.5 years of wearing these on a near-daily basis in the winter months, the bottom has started separating from the rest of the sandal. That's pretty much what I expected to happen.
The cushion is pretty much nonexistent now - it is roughly the equivalent of wearing a pair of socks (or putting on a second layer if you are already wearing socks). I still wear them all the time, mostly for the warmth.
Update - 2 Years Later - Update
These moc slippers are now retired. The rubber sole is now quite slippery, and the bottom is completely coming apart (i.e., you can see the foam padding because the stitching has come apart, and the foam pad has been quickly disintegrating due to its exposure). My review of them remains the same: not bad, not great. They were in optimal condition for only a couple months. I kept wearing them well past their prime and now they look quite ratty. That being said, I do think that 2 years of daily wear would beat up most pairs of slippers.
Comfort/Warmth: I felt instant and sustained warmth, just wearing them and sitting on my chair. "are a warm haven for your chilly feet" No misrepresentation there from the manufacturer.
As I walk, my feet feel they are riding on a plush carpet wearing nothing but a good pair socks even when I am on ceramic tile in the kitchen and bathroom as well a much colder concrete garage floor and the warmth persists. My feet are deforming the shape of the slippers, as the uppers easily tolerate varying and omnidirectional stretch as I walk.
Construction: These seem built like a durable, high quality fleece garment, except they are a shoe. The uppers are made of a single layer of thick soft fleece, a ghastly decorative color on the outside and soft black inside. 2 pieces front and back stitched securely together in the center. There is no removable insole, rather the black fleecy stuff continues, and underneath it is softer but not too thick nor firm, semi plush foam mid-sole, with a thin, flexible rubbery out-sole that grips well. There is a suede border that covers the fleece upper where it meets the out-sole, probably adding to durability and protection from bumps, but also contributing to the general unsightliness . I do not feel any support or shock absorption from the foamy mid-sole, not that I was expecting it. I like the idea that they are machine washable, but have not tried it yet.
Fit: They fit like a nice pair of gloves. They are designed to widen naturally, substantially near the ball of the foot area and nicely hug the toes, contributing to the warmth. They are compliant(stretchy) and commodious for my 9-9.5 length large volume feet. I feel no pinching or pressure points. My dad who has more regular size 9 feet also found them very comfortable to walk around in the house, so I guess he will get a pair too in the same size!
Style: Don't get me going....
I rarely give a 5 star review, and am more than a little amused at reviewers who could not safely perform calisthenics on linoleum, found them suffocating hot in Florida summers or unsuitable for strolling around L.A chinatown or realized that these slippers did not live up to their pets expectations of a soft chewing toy!
Here in the soon to be frozen tundra of Wisconsin, they are just what the doctor ordered. They are what they are advertised as: amazingly warm and comfortable indoor winter slippers. They seem durable enough to survive the winter indoors and decorative enough to be hung up on a wall, after a good wash when summer arrives (next to my Aztec calender?)!~!. They seem light and soft, and wont hurt anyone if hurled in anger or affection. Heck, I might get an extra pair just to throw at the cat, if I do get a cat!
11 month Update: Octber 2013: These are made of durable thick polyester fleece, with a suede bumper, and a relatively thin TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber) sole, and kinda feel like a thick additional sock, and still, just as comfy. I wore them through last winter, entirely indoor puttering, some walking, mostly sitting at my desk, tapping them against the computer, and frequently sleeping in them. They have seen some indoor environmental disasters, spills, etc. I hand washed them with dish liquid a couple of times, and dried them against the heating vents. They stayed in the closet from May to through September. They look (and smell) great, but the midsole cushion has flattened and assumed the mould of my feet. Since they lasted one winter, I am now tempted to additionally use them as oven gloves, a "fetch" toy for the neigbor's dog, for cross-fit, tap dancing, snow shoveling, and simply walking the "cobble stoned cities of Europe"
They are a perfect fit and comfy soft. Nothing scratchy, and the resilient sole puts some bounce into his step. The fleece is not too warm and seems to wick away moisture very quickly. It's just right for our mild Texas climate. And, they are machine washable. It doesn't get any better than this.
Here's hoping you always carry this product.
