I got mine at Gear X for about $48 delivered to my front door and worth every penny. The sole will allow you to go outside and not soak up water like a sponge. Nor do they pick up a lot of dirt to get tracked back into the house.
I love these slippers. I tried lots and lots of different brands on my feet but they just didn't feel right. These were a perfect fit right out of the box. I like to wriggle my toes and have plenty of room for my toes and these have that advantage.
After less than a year of use and mind you they are slippers not everyday shoes the soles are falling off. The stitching has cut though the gum rubber sole and the gum rubber sole is falling off. Sorel has a one year warranty with you paying the freight to and from for repairs. I would have expected the soles to hold up a bit better given the only outside use these have seen it to fetch the morning newspaper out of the driveway.
Update 4-5-2013: I initially gave these slippers a low rating even though I loved the fit due to the short life of the sole material. The replacement slippers have been in service for more than 2 years and are still in great shape. I have to assume they had a problem with the sole material and got it resolved. When these are gone I am going to buy another pair without hesitation.
-They seem well-built with quality, straight stitching. They are not heavily sewn -- meaning they are strictly slippers -- but seams and craftsmanship are top-notch.
-The sole is attached with only a single stitching of medium-gauge thread. It does appear that the sole is glued as well, so this may purely be cosmetic or as a redundancy.
-The interior is what you would expect of a Sorel product. The "fur" is heavily-matted and dense, warm (even when outside), and will hold up for more than a month or two.
-The exterior is made of thick nubuck or suede.
-It wears like a slpper. Meaning that it is flexible and soft on all accounts. The sole is plenty flexible and it doesn't feel like you're wearing around a pair of shoes.
Performance and Impressions:
-These things are warm, warm, warm! Sometimes borderline "too warm" on days that it's not 20 or below.
-They run small. For comparison, I wear a size 13-14 shoe (a "true" 13 by measurement), a 12 Sorel boot, and I ordered these in 14. They fit perfectly.
-The sole does not come up along the sides. This really is my only complaint. I like that they're "outdoor soles" and I can use them when running outside, but if there's any snow that hasn't been shoveled or compacted, they are going to get your slippers wet. Being that they're entirely fabric, this could be potentially problematic.
In all, I couldn't be more happy with these slippers. They have a very traditional style, they're a quality product, and seem much better built than most any slipper I've seen.Read more ›
These are simply the best slippers I have ever owned and I want to buy another pair. Unfortunately for me, I bought these at $40 and now they are nearly 2x the cost! That should tell you how IN DEMAND these slippers are. On the fence? Hop the eff down and click buy. Your feet well thank you. And feel free to gift me a new pair. MY feet will thank you =D
What bothers me is the materials. Amazon states that the slipper is suede outer and fleece (wool/acrylic) inner, with a rubber sole. The sole is definitely rubber, but I wonder about the so-called 'suede' and the lining. The suede definitely doesn't smell like suede - it smells like imitation leather, while the lining seems very unlike wool in terms of its feel. Wool breathes, while this stuff does not seem to. So if there's wool in it, it must be a very small proportion. Also, the complete lack of information on the label makes me a little wary.
Still, the slippers feel good and look great, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and a 4 stars out of 5. One star off, because they seem like man-made fiber, and when I pay over $50 for a pair of suede and wool-lined slippers, I want a label assuring me of the materials. Without that assurance, these slippers could be made of anything.
"What's magical about a label? Sorel is a brand with a reputation to uphold."
Really, so don't you think maybe they would have enough pride in that reputation to at least attach a label that lists the materials used? What's "magical" about a label is that it's supposed to reflect the reputation of the manufacturer - it's supposed to give you important information. The label in this case conveys no information at all, and so what it conveys is incompetence at best.Read more ›
