This is my second purchase of Haflinger slippers; and I continue to be very pleased with them. My first pair (a different style than this purchase) held up for 4 years which I feel makes the price more justifiable. The hard rubber sole holds up well and did not deteriorate at all on my last pair. The boiled wool keeps my feet the perfect level of warmth, and b/c the wool keeps me from sweating--I can wear these w/o socks and they don't develop odor. I typically wear a size 8.5-9 size shoe. I ordered a Euro 40/US9 w/my first pair, and they were wearable but big on my feet; so I opted for a Euro 39/US8 this time, and they are better fit...although a Euro 39.5/US8.5 would be ideal. These are the first slipper brand I've used that doesn't feel sloppy on my feet, provides support and warmth, and holds up longer than a year. I highly recommend Haflinger and specifically the hard soled variety of slipper.
Great quality real leather shoe. I chose the metallic leather which is a unique dark chocolate color with a hint of sparkle. It does run big though. I wear an 8.5 US Size, and had to return the European size equivalent to that. U fortunately there are no exchanges. So be sure to order 1/2 or 1 size u see your normal size.
These shoes are not red. They are a rust color. I needed red. I ordered 1/2 size larger as I purchase European shoes quite often ( I have narrow feet) and am aware of their size difference. They are small. Very disappointed, I need to return them.
I bought this bootie in 8M and 7M, it only comes in even sizes, no half sizes. The "8M" is a little to large and the "7M" is too small. I think the sizing is based on European sizes, which means a 38 is more like a 8 and 1/4 and the 7 is more like a 7 and 3/4 (or so). For reference, I normally wear a US size 8M in a closed toe shoe. Nonetheless, I kept the "8M" as I can add an insert to make them fit. I bought them in GOLD and they are a total riot. I plan on wearing them on Christmas with a black or purple velvet long dress. Gold jewelry and purse, of course. But they will also be a hit for Valentine's Day, a wedding, or any other fancy or goofy occasion. And they come in a multitude of colors! I definitely recommend them. Just wish they has pointy toes, even though that would detract from the "Victorian" look. I gave them only 4 stars because of the peculiar sizing.
