I have been looking for slippers like this for a long time, and am glad that I found them at last. The main positive thing is that they have a good supportive sole-insert, firm, not squishy, and in spite of being backless, are quite safe even for walking up and down the stairs in my house: because the support adds to control, which the depth of the slipper uppers provides. They looks good, feel good, and appear to be well made--however, the suede-like uppers are sensitive to staining (water, food, soap), so it is necessary to be careful while wearing them and to clean them off the moment anything dirties them. They are very pleasant on bare feet. I have been wearing them for about ten days, and hope that they will last well and long--since they are not too cheap.
