My son gave me these for my birthday. They are possibly the best slippers I've had. Yes, they feel a little snug as you first put them on (I'm a size 5) but they are not tight, they just snuggle up to your feet and especially your ankles...which is what I like most about them. I noticed on someone's comment that there were no washing instructions and she didn't know if she could wash them. So, I went to the Bedroom Athletics site and sent an email enquiry. I got a reply almost immediately...on a Sunday...from the respondents blackberry. Yes, they are washable at 30c!! great customer service too! My pair are beautifully made...I cannot find any stiching weaknesses anywhere!
And re: a previous comment they are advertised as slippers not boots...and that's what they are...really nice slippers. :o)
