The Anxiety Mom Dot Com
Shindigs Fortress Review:
These shoes are extremely comfortable, as they are lined with faux fur and have decent arch support. I also have bunions on both feet that need surgery, and because they are fluffy inside, the shoes don't hurt my bones, which is nice.
Because of all the reviews recommending that I buy these shoes a half-size up from my usual size, I did this, and they fit perfectly. My feet are of average width, and I wear women's U.S. size 8.5 or 9, depending on the shoe style, so I ordered a 9.5 to be safe. They fit well, with plenty of room, but are not so big that they fall off, thanks to the fuzzy inner lining.
I bought these shoes to walk my son to the bus stop during cooler weather, and would wear them to go shopping or to run errands as well. I am a practical, no-fuss-type person, and like durable, easy-to-clean shoes that slip on and off easily. My go-to summer shoes are a pair of all-PVA Birkenstocks (Malibu style) that I can rinse off if they get dirty. I'm hoping these Sketchers will be the "winter version" of my practical warm weather shoes.
I wouldn't buy these for indoor/lounging wear, as they are a bit sole-heavy and rugged, and seem to be made expressly for outdoor wear. They are not slippers in any way.
The shoes are of good quality and seem durable, look exactly as pictured online, and I'm very pleased with this purchase. The ordering and shipping process also went smoothly, and I will definitely buy shoes from this site again.
