I’m so disappointed in these slippers, they are the most painful I’ve ever had the displeasure of wearing!
Firstly, the design is beautiful, I’m a goth and finding suitably dark slippers isn’t an easy task, so these punk unicorns are perfect as I do like a sprinkle of cute too. They seem and feel very well made also, very sturdy, especially as the sole is EVA rather than memory foam (also better for those like me with rubber allergies, as memory foam is mostly latex).
The company have attempted to be clever by having only 2 sizes to cover children and adults, by having 2 different sole sizes but a sturdy elasticated ankle to hold your feet in if the sole is a little on the large side for your feet. However it just doesn’t work, because the elastic is so tight and unmoving that it becomes like a wire slowly eating and slicing into the backs of your ankles (see attached photos, which are the backs of my ankles after 30 minutes wear!). Slippers are meant to be the absolute of comfort, after a long day slipping into some comfy slippers can feel like heaven, these feel like a slow torture! They’re ideal if you have a really painful ingrowing toenail and you’re at that point where you just want someone to chop your foot off, if that sounds like you then I recommend these, they’ll get the job done with minimal effort on your part, but it will be slow and likely more painful than that toenail!
I don’t know if the sizing premise here was some kind of money saving tactic, but it just really lets down an otherwise perfect and beautiful pair of slippers!
If you suffer with any kind of joint pain in your ankles, please do yourself a favour and avoid these, they really will make your pain worse, especially if you deal with swelling also as the cuff allows zero room for swelling!
