I ordered the blue pair to use as boots, not as slippers. Am very pleased that they look like the former and not the latter! I am a size 6 and that size fits fine, even with my orthotics inserted ( sadly, using orthotics means that I can't feel the plush sheepskin underfoot. And this sheepskin is, indeed plush! The buckle helps make them look more like outdoor booties that will go well with jeans, and less like house slippers. Fyi, the area behind the buckle is a wedge shaped piece of leather, not elastic, so it doesn't stretch. The buckle has several holes in order to tighten the top of the boot, if you wish. They're very cute, and perfect for any activity. Fingers crossed that they will last a long time! Their maiden voyage is tomorrow. Thanks, Overland! Blue short sheepskin boots are hard to find and you made my day when these went on sale.
