I thought buying TB slippers would mean the premium price would reflect the quality through out, i've been a TB fan for over 20 years. New out of the box they looked and felt great although quite a slim fitting but over time the inside lining and the sole wore very quickly, the lining at the toe wore within weeks and the heal followed pretty quickly after that, they were still wearable but just not that luxury experience you would expect. My main gripe is the sole, all the little rubber nobbles have ripped off from the heal other than the three large ones at the very back, i only wear them in the house on carpet and wooden floor. They are 6 months old and now ready for the bin. Buy slippers from people who make slippers!
