I did a TON of research on Glerups (vs. other wool clog products) and hoped that my search for house slippers was over. I work from home, live in MN (very cold winters and warm summers), and wanted a house slipper/shoe that is comfortable, breathable, naturally odor-inhibiting, and something that feels great when sitting at a desk, lounging on the couch, or when walking...all year. After spending $115 on slippers (after using the 15% first-time discount) I was expecting exceptional quality, fit, and function. What I experienced left much to be desired. After researching and hearing that I should order one size smaller by some and to €œorder true to size€ by others, I was confused. But I opted for true to size. First the positives: A) They fit true to size...like a glove. B) They were VERY comfortable when sitting still. C) The wool color combined with the honey rubber sole was very pleasing to the eye. Now for the negatives: 1) The back area was cut much lower than the photos I had seen on several sites online. Most online photos show about 1 inch of exposed felt at the back (above the sole material). Mine had 1/2 inch, but that difference meant that the heel area just felt awkward and constantly slipped when walking. Sort of like wearing a wool flip flop, not a wool slipper. 2) The left slipper™ wool thickness was VERY uneven, over 1/2 inch€ thick at about the 11 AM position of the opening but less than .25 inch at the 4 PM position. In the official Glerups video they demonstrate how they measure for evenness. 3) The extra piece of felt sewn into the heal area of the left slipper was shifted very off center to the right making it look weird. 4) The person who trimmed the foot opening was sloppy, making the side profile of the foot uneven. 5) There was excess glue on two spots of the heel, making it very shiny. I rubbed hard and eventually got it off. By this point I was second guessing my purchase. This pair missed a Quality Control check. 6) Finally, when walking in the slippers, my feet/ankles turned out, making me feel somewhat unstable. I knew about the rocking sole effect by reading reviews on other sites, but thought that perhaps the issue was overstated and that the rubber might compress and hug the ground more when standing/walking. Not so. If your ankles naturally turn in our out, or if your heel wears unevenly on normal shoes, I would highly recommend that you avoid the rubber sole versions and opt for the leather sole (which, based on logic, should conform more to the floor)...and consider an insole from the Glerups website to level your foot. Additionally, I am at a loss as to why they designed and make a rounded bottom slipper or shoe (rubber or leather sole). Yes, our natural heel profile is rounded when in the air, but the heel/sole of our feet naturally flatten to create optimal surface contact for stability. The Glerups’ rubber sole inhibited my stability. It seems like a design miss. I am sincere when I ask who is helped by a rocking sole design? I ended up calling Backcountry customer service and found them very helpful. They quickly sent me a return label for my rubber-soled SLIPPER and helped process an order for the Glerups leather-soled SHOE. I am really hoping for higher quality and a better fit and feel on my second Glerups pair. I think Glerups has a great product concept with a lovely family-owned business story, along with lots of glowing reviews on high profile websites. I want to add a positive review to the mix...if my next pair appears and functions better. I truly hope this review helps other consumers as well as helping the Glerups company succeed by considering an improved rubber-sole design and better consistency with Quality Control. PS - You might also find it helpful knowing what Glerups model numbers mean: A is shoe, B is slipper, G is boot, and R means rubber sole. So, AR means a shoe with rubber sole, B is leather slipper, GR is rubber sole boot, etc.

Nobody needs a $134 slipper. The idea of the glerups is insane just on the face. And yet, these slippers have solved a life-long problem for me. I have cold feet. But my feet sweat in normal, fleecy slippers. The wool on the glerups is so thick that my feet never get cold anymore and so breathable that they never sweat. I feel guilty admitting that I spend over a hundred bucks on a pair of slippers. But they are *so* good that I'd do it again. Absolutely amazing.

I love these slippers and they fit well, but they’re just not durable. I found that after wearing them for a few months the stitching at the heel blew out on both feet. I took them to my tailor to be restitched, but now they’re separating *again* just past the repaired stitches. For the price, this lever of quality is just unacceptable. Do not buy.

I'd heard good things and as soon as I had them on I found them exceptionally comfy. They're warm but breathable; snug but have good grip. My one gripe, within a few months they began to fray and holes opened up around the toes. I still wear them and I might get another pair but I expect for slippers that cost over $100 to hold up for more than a single winter. I'm a little disappointed they haven't been made to a higher standard, given the cost and reputation.

40.0

Received the charcoal Glerups slip on (low back), rubber sole today. 30 minutes after putting them on and walking around, I came right back and ordered the cranberry shoe with higher backs so I would have options. My regular shoe size is women's 9.5W. The 40.0 fit perfectly with a thinnish smartwool sock and a little loose when barefoot. If I planned on wearing thick socks then maybe a 41 would be better but these are perfect for me as-is.

This is my second pair of Glerups and they still are the best when it comes to slippers. The first pair I had were bought from a different place of business and I bought the suede bottoms in a women's size7/37., figuring I would give myself rooms for socks. They lasted me two years with a few little fixable blow outs until the I went to pull a wool blob off the insole and it all came off. they also stretched out a lot. And the soles got very dirty, despite having a clean house and never wearing them outside. They were also not very form fitting. So it was time to get another pair which lead me to these and I love/prefer them to my original pair. I decided to size down to a 6/36 so I wouldn't have to schlep around in big slippers, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to wear socks with them but it wasn't an issue at all. These are form fitting, true to size, the soles don't get filthy ( and if they do I can very easily clean them due to the rubber) Still,no sweaty feet as with typical slippers. I am very happy with my choice. The only downfall was that I would have loved to have seen purple as an option. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good pair of slippers.

TL;DR this is basically a comparison of rubber soled Glerups and Haflingers. Bottom line: these are awesome. This is my first pair of Glerups, and I’ve only had them a few days, but I’m no stranger to boiled wool slippers. I found Haflinger AT’a about 6 years ago and was in love - finally a slipper that doesn’t stink, doesn’t sweat, and feels amazing!! Both pairs of AT’s lasted about 3 years, and they were glued to my feet anytime I was gone all four seasons - not too warm in summer or too chilly in winter - amazing! I loved those, but had heard really good things about the Glerups, most notably that they’re more durable and even more comfortable. All the good boiled wool slippers are $100+, so if I can get maybe an extra year out of these why not try em? A note about size - I wore 44 in Haflingers, tried that in Glerups = way too big. I considered squeezing into 42s - bet that would feel super cozy and break in beautifully - but I returned for 43’s and they’re feeling pretty great. Slide off a lil easier than I’m used to but I’ll adjust I’m sure, the length looks ideal. What I immediately loved about the Glerups: the feel - sooooo soft on the skin, with a nice fluffy foot bed - is there memory foam in there? I doubt it will stay fluffy like that for long, but right now they feel totally luxurious, like cashmere for my feet! I also really like the color choices - wish I could’ve gone bold with the orange, but they only offer that for the leather bottomed, and I need to be able to go out and get the mail, do the recycling in the PNW, ya feel? Classic style, simple. They shed a lot, but that’s par for the course. That will be done soon with use; they’ll feel even softer! Where I’m unsure: will they stretch and loose their shape, and fall off easily? How much is that footbed gonna flatten? Is the stitching solid? Will I get used to the slightly rolly sole? Only time will tell. What I know is that if you wear boiled wool as often I did, you’ll want to wash them once a year. They never got stinky, but a quick lukewarm Dr. Braunner’s peppermint wash in the sink and a thorough rinse always made them feel softer, fresher, and made them last longer FOR SURE. It won’t hurt the wool at all. Just don’t go ice cold or boiling hot and you’ll be fine. The Haflinger’s had a few differences in feel: more of a pronounced arch support - not a crazy amount, just right for my rather low arches; very flat bottom, which felt more solid compared to the Glerups; perhaps a slightly higher back lip, that kept the AT’s on my feet with no need to grab or spread with my toes. It’ll prolly be a year or three until I know which works better for my feet and lifestyle, but until then, I’ve got a pretty bitchin’ comfy pair of slippers. Keep chillin!

The shoes: The shoes are amazingly comfortable! They have the perfect amount of cushion and my feet are pleasantly warm, but never hot or sweaty. They envelope and support your foot in the best way! I would error on the smaller size if you are between sizes. You want the lip on the back to cup your heel. If it’s too big, the shoe might slip off. The company: I had a fantastic experience with Backcounty. I wear a size 9 in women’s and was vacillating between a 39 and 40. I ordered the 40’s and they ended up being too big. I contacted the company and they sent me out a return label via email immediately. I bought the correct size right then. I could have waited for the exchange, but I was impatient. Haha. They expedited the shipping for the new pair and I got them in only a few days. They were very helpful and made the experience effortless. I’d definitely buy from them again!

So as a Dad, I usually receive and NEED a pair of slippers every Christmas because mine have worn out completely. This year's pair I received were comfy, but they had to be put into the bathroom at night after I removed them (if you know what I mean.) So I went on a hunt for a hard-soled wool slipper hoping to save all of our noses. I recently began wearing nothing but wool socks year-round to help combat this and thought finding a nice pair of wool slippers to complete the "wool footwear" duo would do the trick. I looked at a few different brands but took a shot with Glerups, as I had never purchased the brand before. I have worn these with socks and without for a while now and I couldn't be more pleased! Build is outstanding, comfortable as they come, "hard sole" rubber bottom allows me to walk out on a slick wooden deck or out to the mailbox. Sounds corny to heap such praise on a pair of slippers- but I have to tell you- you won't be disappointed! These things are GREAT!! On top of that.. these can stay in the bedroom at night! Problem solved! My kiddos shouldn't have to buy me slippers again. If these wear out, I'll buy another pair in a heartbeat!

I purchased these as a gift for my partner and it feels like she has not taken them off since. I think if it were socially acceptable, she would wear them everywhere we go. They’re a great design, warm, comfortable, and fit true to size. The rubber sole not only gives good grip inside but also makes quick trips outside to the car or mailbox doable without switching shoes, even if the ground is wet or snowy. I’m now contemplating getting a pair myself!

I really wanted to like them. Well made slipper. The the way the soles wrap around to the sides, made them difficult to walk in. They also don't stay on your feet. The sole made them uncomfortable. I only wore them around the house for about 10 min before I knew they were absolutely going back.

I’m on my 3rd pair of these. They are comfortable, breathable, yet warm. The only issue with the first two pairs was the leather sole wore out too quickly. That looks to be a problem of the past! The new rubber sole is amazing. It takes these slippers from a 10 to an 11. Treat yourself.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mother, and she absolutely loves them! Theses slippers scream quality. It is evident from the first glance. The quality of the wool used is superb, and the construction is simply outstanding. And of course, mom has assured me that they are the most comfortable slippers she has ever had! Looks like I’ll have to order some for myself soon!

Super comfortable slippers after a day on the slopes. My feet tend to sweat. A lot. I've always had an issue with traditional slippers getting to grimy if I wear them consistently without socks. These slippers are breathable and so far I've been able to wear them with none of the usual odor and they still seem just like new!

How do this slipper fit a wider foot?

Hi Chloe, these slippers have a Standard D Width measurement as men's shoes or Standard B width as women's shoes.
