Tissue runs very narrow I do not have a wide foot but the outsides of my foot we're sitting over the edge of the so insole in the slipper. So it feels like there is a arch support on the outside of the foot. Also the bottoms of them are made out of white lambskin so even walking around on the carpet and one day they don't look returnable. I would only buy this slipper if you have an incredibly narrow foot.

I definitely would never buy these again the arch support almost feels like one of those half inserts that you stick into your shoes you almost feel a arch support on the outside of your foot. Feels awkward and almost forces your ankles to roll in a little bit.

My husband loves these slippers! He wears a size 11-11.5 shoe and the 12 slipper fits him well. Great arch support.

Recently learned that I am now a 10 wide, have a bone spur on my right heel, and may also have plantar fasciitis and a falling arch on that foot. I had to pretty much donate all of my shoes and start looking for more support. I decided to try to find slippers first, and found that these keep my feet warm and dry but comfortable, provide moderate arch support, and the black wool upper looks great with everything. Nonskid, non-marking outer sole a plus. A closed back and removable washable insole means I can later replace it with a custom orthotic. I've had them almost a month and they have yet to stretch out or cause me to trip or stumble on stairs. These are my house shoes, not just slippers. If I need to ease the bone spur more, I can switch to a more supportive shoe. I wish I could have had them at a lower price, but they seem to be well made--in Austria, not China, and that makes me feel better about the cost.

Best slipper I've have ever worn for my flat feet. Arch is high, true to size, very comfortable and well made. I'm believing they will be very durable so I'm thinking I will enjoy them for many years as my in door shoe. Thank you Zappos for your wonderful customer service.

I am returning this slipper. It has no arch support and slips off my foot. Plus it was shipped without a box just in a plastic bag.

I am a size 8-1/2, so ordered the European equivalant size 9, as I'd read about the slipper running small. When it arrived, it was actually a little too big. But more annoyingly, the back heel would collapse and I'd be walking on it. There's not enough stiffness in the back heel, but maybe it was because the slipper was a little big.

I love these slippers! They give your feet warmth while providing ample arch support. They are a winter "must have"!

Very comfortable slipper. Lots of room where the toes are. I love it and would highly recommend. I normally wear size 37 for running shoes, and 36 for sandals. I ordered 37 for this slipper and my heel was coming off when I walked, so it was a bit big, but with socks it fit well.

The first pair, in my normal size were flopping all around and were too big - so I returned and ordered a size smaller - - my toes hit the top of the slipper.... I had to return completely.... I wanted to love them, but, they didn't love me.

I don't even know how to write this review as the shoe was so small I couldn't even fit into it. I ordered a size 15 which came through as a European size 48. On Uggs, for instance, their 15 is a 49.5. Anyway, the slipper was I would guess 2 sizes smaller than marked.

I wear these pretty much all day as I work out of my house, so they've been getting tons of use. I normally wear a 39, but I ordered a 40 and they fit perfectly. The arch support is definitely more than I expected in a slipper, but these straddle the line between slipper and shoe so it makes sense and is comfortable. I think I've just found my new slipper line for life.

The arch support is pretty good though I had hoped it would be a little bit better. The insoles are removal so if you wanted to put in your own custom orthotics, you can. They are actually quite warm and sometimes my feet get kind of sweaty, so I need to take them off and switch to another pair of slippers or flip-flops. I like the fact that they have a closed heel. I tried another style of Giesswein slippers but because of the open back, I could not get a proper fit.

I wanted to like these, but they are ridiculously big and floppy. It is very thin boiled wool, so there's no structure - it's almost like wearing a heavy sock. Aside from the fact that they were too wide, I wanted more substance to my slipper.

I literally read all the reviews twice to figure out what size I'd be in these slippers. I ordered a size 7 and they fit perfectly. For reference, I wear a 7.5 in most casual shoes, 8 or 8.5 in running shoes and boots. They're comfortable, but I wouldn't say 'amazing' like others have said. There's a little too much arch support for me, but I needed more than nothing. I like the style and would wear these with skinny jeans out if these weren't house slippers.

I really think I would like these, but they're at least a size too small. I usually wear size 13. I got the 46 and my toes hit the front of these.

I love the Giesswein Veitsch. The Giesswein Acadia not so much. The Veitsch has fantastic molded in sole, the Acadia has A felt insole. The Veitsch costs more and is worth every euro.

Can't say enough good things about Giesswein Veitsch. Warm, comfy, supportive, nonslip, dry, ventilated, happy feet.

Bought two pair if these for my husband and son and they rave about the comfort. They started out as slippers have turned into street wear. Great shoe
