I have bad feet and wear orthotics. Even with that, I come and my feet may feel sore but when I put on my Haflingers my feet feel great again. The cork sole forms perfectly to you foot. I wear them all the time at home (just not in bed). I have a pair, my wife has a pair and I just bought my father a pair.
This was a unisex shoe and runs large. I wear a 5.5 or 6 shoe and purchased the Euro 36. It was a full size to big. I would have ordered it in a Euro 35, but they do not come in that size. I was so disappointed and hope that Haflinger will make this shoe in a ladies cut and put this sole on more of their ladies shoes!
These shoes are my e'ery day shoes. They work perfectly as slippers without socks- keeping my feet warm and comfy around the house and they transform wonderfully to casual shoes I wear to school (nursing). I know they're pricey, but if you consider a 1$ paid for every time you wear them, I can assure you there will be a profit to be had!
With the size I normally wear (39) they are a bit big. I have to wear socks with them to keep them on my feet. They are very cute and well made. I suggest getting a size smaller than your normal size. The size chart online is also off, as it originally put me in a 40 according to my US shoe size, which was so big I couldn't wear them and had to exchange for the 39.
Founded fifty years ago as a family-run business, Haflinger is the largest manufacturer of boiled wool in Germany. The name comes from a breed of work horse that originates in the Tyrolean Mountains of Austria. Haflinger slippers are expertly crafted to reflect the reliability of this horse—and to be durable, cozy, and versatile.
Still run by the grandson of the founder, the company is known for its boiled wool slippers and its wool felt clogs. Gerda Hoehm brought Haflinger boiled wool slippers to the United States and Canada in 1991. The reception from North America was and is undeniable with new lines harmonizing with the traditional.
Haflinger promotes and encourages an active and healthy lifestyle with footwear that combines natural, breathable materials with essential support. Because wool is a natural insulator, it can be comfortably worn year round, keeping your feet cool in warm weather and warm in cool weather.
Look for the Haflinger classic Grizzly clog, the favorite Haflilnger classic hardsole slipper of many loyal customers.
