I bought this in the Ocelot print which make me purrrfectly happy. The sole is cushion-y soft/mushy. I generally avoid slippers like this due to lack of structure and support, especially since I have flat feet. However, since this is a bootie slipper, your foot is entirely contained so it won't be sliding all over the place. There is no arch support though. The Acorn Tex Bootie is attractive however, in addition to being comfy, soft, and warm. Great winter slipper, great quality.
