REI Down Booties - Women'sis rated4.0952out of5by21.
Rated2out of5bykdownfromMissing ankle elasticI love my mens version of these, but when I bought the women's' for my girlfriend we found out that it does not have the elastic band around the ankle that keeps the bootie on your foot, so they just fall right off. Both the men's and the kid's have an ankle band but not the women's - weird.

Rated5out of5byrunnerguyfromChronicly cold feet NOW TOASTY!I bought these for my 81 yr old mother with a torn ligament in her foot and also has alzhiemer's disease. She has chronically cold feet. I've tried electric blankets, down blankets, electric socks, toe warmers, etc. She forgets she has all these items and they get misplace and lost. But, she always remembers these down, pink slippers! She loves them and is finally warm and is more willing to stay off that foot because she's comfortable. BEST PURCHASE I'VE MADE for her in a long time! I hope REI make a down slipper with a bit more sole in the future so she can go out on the porch the feed her cats. That would be perfect.

Rated2out of5bybowpersonfromDown on Down BootiesI was looking forward to these booties because my house is always cold. they are great if you're not walking around in them. with each step the foot slips to the outside and eventually completely off the sole. the bootie is possibly too wide unless your foot is really wide.
they are really warm and i'll continue to wear them while lounging, but not walking up and down steps or any distance more than 25 feet or so.

Rated3out of5byTinycadancerfromPrefer the older version.....These serve their purpose.. My feet stay warm and they are really comfortable! My only complaint happens to be about the top part of the boot :/ The older version had a drawstring around the top so you could tighten the ankle up, which was great and needless to say helped them stay on securely. Not to mention kept all the warmth inside more effeciently.... As you can see, the new design does not have the drawstring feature, just a snap around the top.. Which does not accomodate those with smaller ankles, regardless of whether or not you wear thick socks.
Doubt I will buy these things again once my current pair wears out, unless I really don't find a suitable option from any other outdoor company. The drawstring feature WITH the snap was great in the old version..... Don't "fix" something when it isn't broken REI. :(

Rated5out of5byCamminatore AFKfromWarm slippers for when it get coldI was introduced to these booties from other family members and have been wearing them ever since. I've worn them in a lot of different settings, but mainly at home, when traveling, and in my tent at night.
A caution: be care around sharp things that could snag the material that holds the down in. Snag it and you'll have feathers everywhere, but duct tape works nicely as a fix.

Rated3out of5byshopper GfromWarm ankles, cold feet!I love how tall these slippers are, keeping the sides of my feet and my ankles warm, just as warm as wool fleece that I usually wear for slippers.
However, there's absolutely nothing on the insoles to keep the bottoms of your feet warm, just foam padding covered with a thin layer of soft fabric. I need something warm and squishy! Walking around in my chilly kitchen, the bottoms of my feet were freezing.
However, they were warmer when I added some fleece insoles, and I thought about keeping them then, but they are also slippery on the bottom, in spite of the rubbery dots. I like slippers with a real rubber sole. So although I love the height and how they keep my ankles warm, I'm going to return these.
REI, please redesign these with a better outsole and warm, squishy insole, and I'll come back to try them again. Meanwhile, I'll be wearing shearling slippers.

Rated4out of5byGCinSCfromBig hit for my Little GirlBought for my daughter for a winter trip. Kept feet toasty in the sleeping bag and around campsite. Sole is not good for campsite roving. Too soft and not durable. Priced right and did the job.
