Top critical review
Nice look and feel, but may not last
on February 24, 2015
I thought these were a nice find, as they fit comfortably and weren't too expensive. However, after some months I noticed that the sole on one foot has split -- there is a grip pattern along much of the front, and apparently that creates a structural weakness, as a crack has appeared behind the grip zone right along the edge, and is starting to work around one side, so that eventually the grip zone (about 3x3 inches) looks like it's going to cut itself out. Looking at the other slipper, it appears the same thing is happening, though only along part of the back edge so far.
This is after about 6 months of wear, a couple hours a day. My previous pair I finally considered worn out after maybe 5 or 6 years, so I had hoped for a longer life than that.
Update: even worse, the sole part is becoming detached from the upper part -- already 6 inches or so of stitching are gone, and these slippers have essentially disintegrated to uselessness 8 months after purchase.
