Rated5out of5byNealAKfromGreat Slippers!I am glad that I heeded the previous reviews when I ordered these slippers. They do run a full size small. I normally wear a size 12 and the 13 fits perfectly. However, that is the only downside and I love these slippers. They do not have the useless ties that seem to come untied at inconvenient moments. They also fit more snugly on the foot since the rear of the slipper comes higher on the ankle. In short, I would buy these again in a heartbeat.

Rated5out of5byBrucemitfromVery nice comfy slippersI tried these on in the store, along with the lower-heeled Falcon Ridge model. The Manawans feel more secure and I would imagine are warmer as they cover the back of your heel.
I went up a full size and got a perfect fit. Easy to pull on, totally comfortable. We have tile and hardwood in most of the house and I've really enjoyed the slippers so far.
Great to pull 'em on in the morning for making coffee and oatmeal in the tile-floored kitchen. I've always just worn socks around the house on cool days, but I'm now a slipper convert.
Excellent product, just right.

Rated5out of5byRockiesFTCHikerfromComfy and well builtThese are great slippers with a durable rubber style sole. If you have short outdoor needs when running out of the house...fine, but don't wear them outside like shoes. Warm liner...like 'em!

Rated5out of5byTour EiffelfromWarmth & comfort are the best.Sorel is a brand I've purchased before,though not a slipper,and was very pleased with its comfort and durability. The construction of this slipper exceeds all others I've tried,and the exceptional warmth is exactly what I was hoping to experience.

Rated4out of5byTE The PJfromComfortableWarm and comfortable. Used them at the cabins on Mt. Charleston NV and they kept the feet warm on cold floors and a very cold balcony. Got them on clearance and even then they were a bit pricey but they're easy to put on, warm, and (so far) very rugged.

Rated5out of5byBushwackfromI would recomend this slipperI was going to be off work for 6 weeks and wanted a new pair of slippers that were comfortable to wear all day if needed and boy do these fit the bill. Feet never get cold and I have to check my feet when I leave the house or I will forget I have them on. Great product.

Rated4out of5byBig DPfromLong term review- good for light useI have had a pair of these for over 3 years, and thought I would give a long term review of these.
For those who care and notice, REI did not provide these specs: the shoes (for size 11 men's) weigh 1 lb, 4 oz (580 g).
Original opinion of slippers was "the cheap rubber sole is just stitched to the slipper, and the way it is stitched will wear down with simple walking and fall off. What junk. Thank goodness for the REI satisfaction guarantee."
Please notice I have owned the same pair of slips for over 3 years. I was wrong.
The sole and it's stitching do not lie on the same plane you typically scuff your heel, so for the most part, you never scuff the stitches. The stitching you do scuff off does not seem to destroy the shoe. My right shoe is missing one or two stitches and the heel seems as secure as the other ("pristine") stitches. (Picture attached showing this.)
The sole itself seems pretty durable. I have worn it around the house, the mall, in the car, light walks to the corner store, etc. They have also travelled in backpacks, suitcases, and such. So far, they have experienced light wear but no sign of wearing through.
Insole is worn, but not destroyed. If I wanted to, I might buy a pair of inserts to extend this, but it is a slipper, so I don't mind using a compressed insole. Comfort and support are what one should expect from a non-rigid slipper. Minimal, but cozy and warm.
Unlike some reviews I have seen, after 3 years, the inner lining does not seem to be shedding, falling apart, or in very poor shape at all. I am pleasantly surprised at the condition it is in.
Exterior wear and tear are minimal. A few stains from spilled food aside, the stitching and material are in solid shape, with no apparent/major stitch issues. Nothing is spitting, and no "home made shoe repairs" have been used to date. I have attached a picture hopefully showing the general condition of the shoe after 3 years use.
All in all, this slipper looks like it has at least another 3 years of life to it if treated well.
I only give it a 4-star because I still don't like the soles, even though they have lasted 3 years inside and out. Maybe I am too picky.
Hope this helps!
