All measurements are approximate and may vary slightly by size.
The most luxurious slippers are made from double faced sheepskin. Double faced means a single layer of sheepskin with the outer face being tanned hide and the inner being a thick fleece. Double faced sheepskin slippers breath well and the thick fleecy fibers on the inner part of the slipper allows air to circulate during summer so that feet do not become excessively warm. In winter the sheepskin slippers prevent heat loss and are highly prized for their effectiveness. The slippers are designed to be worn without socks in order to maximize the benefits of sheepskin. Double faced sheepskin wool does not shed, because it's attached to the skin.
I bought these a few weeks ago and they are already heading to the trash. The "shearling" "stuff" has been coming off in clumps. Plus, they really really smelled gross (chemically) though the smell did go away soon. They look okay, but are disposable slippers.
The other reviews are not kidding about the smell! I had been looking for slippers just like this for a long time, so, based upon a few of the reviews that said the smell wasn't that bad, I went ahead and ordered them. I let them sit out of the plastic bag for a week or so, and the smell didn't seem that bad. Within an hour or so of having them on my feet I was trying to find out where the cat had peed! It was the slippers! Now that I've worn them, I can't return them. I've tried the Febreze suggestion, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to wear them.
Do not waste your money!

These looked wonderful, but when I tried them on...YUCK! They have this funky VERY hard heal on them, what's with a heal on a slipper? The heal was very uncomfortable and didn't seem attached to the rest of the sole so as my food slid to the front of slipper the heal sort of flopped around. Even ordering them smaller (after reading the other reviews) they were too big.
The slippers smelled REALLY strongly of synthetic materials! To the point of smelling up any room they were in for the first couple of weeks. I don't know if it was the glue or the rubber or what, but I don't enjoy exposing myself to lots of toxins, and so I wouldn't buy them again. Plus, they have really hard soles, and even with the shearling layer on top, they don't feel very cushiony or comfortable, they're like walking on a very hard surface. Too bad, beacuse they were a great price.

The heel area is hard, but the slippers are not as stable as a pair with footbed that is hard all over. The front area is flexible enough to accomodate a wide foot with a high instep, they are warm and the wool is very soft. I wear a women's 7 1/2 (D or E width, which is very wide) and the 8 (38) is fine for me.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. decent
Shearling linsole lining seems sparse and provides no cushioning. It remains to be seen whether the lining will pull away from the sole. It feels as if is it is not attached very securely. I would not purchase this product again.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color received was the same as the on-line image.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality fair.
