This is a great slipper. The padding is more than adequate and the feel of the construction is very durable without being stiff. The sole of the slipper is tough enough to wear outdoors, even if the weather is a bit damp. I've owned other slippers in the past with a hard sole for outdoor use and they are generally much more stiff than this Sorel. Overall it is comfortable, warm, and will last. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a good multi-use slipper.
