Love em

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

These are really comfortable and warm just like a house slipper should be, but have a hard sole so that you can walk outside with them too. I ordered my regular shoe size and they are a little difficult to get on, but fit well.

Good, not amazing

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

As others have noted, they run a bit a bit snug. And they are not slip-ons. And they don't provide any arch support.

On the plus note, the fleece is very soft and warm, the sole is grippy, and they are pretty darn good for lounging, especially at camp or somewhere where a softer sole is going to get destroyed and a true slipper is going to get a bunch of dirt/rocks/scorpions/ whatever in it.

Overall, I use old school boiled wool slippers if I'm in the house but I do use these if I'm going in and out, or if I'm camping.

Good, not amazing

Runs small and wears like a shoe

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small

I wear size 8 in Keen shoes but the size 8 slippers I ordered felt at least a half size too small. I also had trouble getting my feet in and out of them due to the small opening. Finally, the stiff soles made these slightly uncomfortable to wear as a slipper. I ended up returning them.

Great Looking Slipper with Hard Sole

I purchased these slippers for my elderly father. He uses a walker and firm, secure footing is a real priority for us. These slippers really filled the bill. They are attractive, well made and lightly lined with fur. Not only do they provide the safe traction needed to keep my father's footing stable, they look good! I am so fortunate that I stumbled upon the backcountry website. The staff is very helpful and the products (this wasn't my only purchase) are first rate. I will never hesitate to utilize this site in the future and will recommend it to anyone who will listen.

Round #2

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:Runs small

I bought these as a gift for my father last year and he raved about them so much that I had to get them for my Uncle this year. I have heard varying reviews on the sizing, but I found that again I had to size up. The only thing I can think is that both males that I purchased these for have large as well as wide feet so they may have needed the size up to accommodate the width.

If you're a guy, don't go big...

  • Fit:True to size

I read almost every review on both the Men's and the Women's slipper before ordering a pair for myself and my wife. I ordered the next size up for my wife and they fit perfectly; however, she didn't like them. I too, ordered the next size up and they were too big.

Have slipper will travel well!

    Pair for me and pair for husband. We are both very happy! Purchased to use in the lodges each evening on our planned wiking trip down the rouge river this May...

    We are at the beach this week at we both packed our keen slippers. Comfy true to size, slip your finger in and slide them on!

    Great Slippers!

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these for my dad as a gift and he says he loves them. They are great for hanging around the house, but also have a nice sole that makes it easy for walking outdoors. One thing that was a little frustrating was sizing. He is a 10.5 to 11.0 and we had to size all of the way up to a 11.5. Other then the sizing though, this was a great purchase!

    nice slippers

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Got these to have a pair of more rugged slippers good for wearing outside as well in the house. Have used them for about a month and so far so good.

    I was pleased to find out that I could take these on and off without using my hands. Takes a bit more effort than a normal slipper with a short back heel, but not hard to do.

    I live in LA, and these are warm, but not too warm for winter here. In early fall I found my feet starting to sweat a bit if I wore them too long (more than an hour or so), but haven't had those problems now that the temperature has dropped.

    Sizing: They feel true to size to me. I normally wear a 10, ordered a 10, and the fit is right on.

    Wrong Size

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I ordered these for my husband who has Keen shoes but not slippers. After reading the reviews, I ordered him a half size larger, but they were too large, so I'm returning them for a half size smaller. He has narrow feet. Am looking forward to seeing how these others fit! Otherwise, when he tried them on, he said they felt awesome!

    Warm and comfy. Size: see comment

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just got these but they're comfortable and warm. I got the size that I wear in a shoe. I'll be wearing some ultra light to light Smartwool socks with them and they're just the right amount of snug. I wasn't sure after reading other comments. Comfortable. These are great for wearing around the house and out to the pub.

    Great slipper

      Good support. Insole provides the cushioning that i need. Rubber sole is great if you are looking for something that is "non-slip". I never rate anything 5/5 because that would indicate perfection, however, this product comes very close!

      super slippers!

        very comfy, great fitting slipper.

        I have only forgot that I had slippers on once while I got in my car to drive to work. Luckily I had to get out to remove a branch in the driveway and I noticed so I could go back and put on dress shoes.

        only complaint is I can not slip into them without bending down and using a hand.

        Absolute Best

          I've owned a pair of these for about 6 months, and came back to buy another pair for when, or if, these ever wear out. I work from home and wear these every day to work. If I leave the house, as soon as I return, the Howser is back on my feet. The natural rubber sole on the bottom is super tough. The Keen-
          Cush insole is divine, and to top it off, my feet are surrounded by micro-fleece. Nothing feels better than hopping of the trail or the bike and slipping into these heavenly foot hotels. My pair are true to my size 12 feet.

          Unfortunately it looks like my size is no longer available anywhere, and I can only hope that Keen continue this model and makes more. If you can find a pair in your size, buy them. Your feet will not be disappointed.

          Tuff Slippers

            These are some serious slippers! With a rugged rubber sole I wouldn't think twice of wearing these out to grab the paper or even to go to the store. I picked up a 1/2 size larger than what I regularly wear due to the previous reviewers suggestions but I think I could have stuck with my standard size. The first complaint is that the opening on these is super tight which is a pain and I'm sure will lead to the slipper wearing out prematurely in this area. My only other complaint is that these slippers are super heavy which doesn't exactly scream comfortable.

            Good, not great

              I love Keen Shoes, Keen Sandals... and I was really excited about these slippers. A few problems:
              1. They are small... i should have listened to the other reviewers and ordered a 1/2 size larger than my normal keen shoe size. Particularly the opening is small and hard to get your foot into it. Not a big deal and i'm sure it will stretch out.
              2. Very little ventilation... Now maybe I should have expected this from the design, but I find that my feet get sweaty if i'm not wearing socks. As a slipper this is kinda disappointing

              Pros: The build quality seems top-notch and the indoor/outdoor capability is nice. Nice, warm and comfy.



              can these be machine washed?

              can these be machine washed?

              I am ordering a replacement pair as I have worn these so much that the uppers are wearing through . They are the best slippers on the planet. I machine wash mine about every six months with no problem. I am an old dude, 65 and so I have been through a few pairs of slippers in my day and these are the best. Just follow everyone's advice and order them a half size to large.

              How warm are these. I am looking for some...

              How warm are these. I am looking for some house shoes. I live in a warm climate so I am looking for some house shoes that have little insulation, but nice cushion.
