    I constantly walk around bare foot. Have done so for years, but this last year I'd planned to buy a decent pair as I'd been WFH.

    However, I read an article last week that explained that bare foot helps maintain foot strength and flexibility, Vs flat footbed sliders or slippers. Shoes are apparently best as they support your arch.

    Left me somewhat confused as to what slippers would be best, with a decent foot bed. Apparently Berkinstock are good for this

    Ugg slippers are great with the warm furry lining. Lasted me years now

    Ordered Giesswein Veitsch on 9th, delivered just now, just in time for me to go to bed (working nights this week).

    First impressions are good. The footbed has a large support for the arch. I suspect this molds to you foot over time. Initially it feels large. They feel very comfortable in bare feet.

    Does the glass not cut your feet?

    FedEx have lost mine after sending them to the wrong depot but are going to try and find them. The old ones will have to do a little while longer.

    Mmmhhh…. Have some furry Ugg slippers

    Maybe I need something for the cooler months?

    Are these ok in terms of not making your feet too sweaty?

    Can be sweaty if worn barefoot. With socks all ok.

    Exactly why I got mine & they have been great so far, much lighter than my Ugg ones & significantly cooler on my feet.

    These are the most comfortable slippers I have ever owned

    When winter comes simply change the liner

    Slippers......am I missing a trick?

    It’s difficult to imagine more spazzy looking feet than this but my, they are comfy.

    I sent the low back ones back, couldn’t deal with them flapping about.


  15. #165
    We'll they're here but somehow smaller than the pair they're replacing. Double checked the size on both which is the same so not sure why they're different. I've ordered the next size up so hopefully I'll have a fitting pair in a few days if FedEx don't lose these too.

    Boring old Vs new size pic.

    Those were the ones I was looking at too

    Do the flop off the back of your heel when walking? I hate that, so would avoid if they do

    Mine don’t. Just had to have walk round to check they don’t.

    all mules -

    the ones on me plates are sheepskin a pressie from the wife, from either latvia or estonia (the baffies not the ball and chain) - warm

    the teal ones were pressie from brother, from one of the ###stan countries (as above) felted , also warm

    the grass cover ones are sam windsors outdoor mules - good for pottering around in (including strimming apparently) - cheap but durable (much like the ball and chain) ...
