- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've owned a pair of these for a year now and love them. I did two things I think have contributed to my positive experience. First, I bought them one full size larger than what I normally wear. Being slippers, I wanted to be able to slide them on easily in the dark. There is a small lip at the heal of the slippers that helps them stay on. Being a full size larger my foot always lands inside the lip and never crushes it. Second, I knew I would probably be wearing these with Smartwool Light Hiker socks. This turned out to be a good assumption because my feet actually sweat a lot in these when barefoot. With wool socks on, they never sweat. I think wearing socks has the added benefit of protecting the inside of the slippers from sweat and human body oil. The slippers have stretched out a bit, but still fit just the way I wanted them to. Wearing these and a pair of 20 year old Gramicci G pants [they don't make 'em the same anymore] is my favorite way to lounge and work from home.
