I ordered these to replace some above-the ankle slippers I'd had. I wanted something that I could wear outside, to let the dogs in and out and go out to the garden. These fit the bill, and I like that they are not made from any animal-products. They are nice and tall, and they're warm and cozy too. They don't have any arch support, so if you're looking for something to wear all day as a true boot, these probably won't do well for that. But for slippers inside, and quick trips outside, they're great.
