I've thrown away so many pairs of slippers with holes that have worn out over the years. Typically I wouldn't find myself owning a pair of slippers like Bearpaw but since they were a gift, I've found a slipper that I know will last my lifetime! The quality is worth the price and the comfort is unbelievable. When I was in my third trimester of my pregnancy none of my shoes fit my feet were swollen and hurt. This slipper was my everyday shoe and I have to say I wore them when I drove and ran my daily errands. They are very warm and comfortable and I can see the quality when I compared to my old slippers and this truly is worth paying for if I can replace my old slippers. Highly recommend.
