My wife gifted these to me for Christmas, and I have worn them every night since. They have the breathability of your standard sock with enough sole protection to run the trash to the curb. Even with company over I can wear them without feeling like a bum. They really are the perfect cold-weather slipper.

I've been wearing Acorn Slipper socks (cotton) since the early 80s, buying new pairs with confidence because they were one of those perfect items that does't need fixing. I'm tall and slim and the new fit of these socks are to tight around the ankle, and the top of the sock also way too tight. Further, the length of the sock is now much too long. I had to return them much to my great disappointment! I can't image someone with larger ankles/calf than mine being comfortable in these...I"m a standard size 11 and slim. My wife ordered a new pair and returned them for the same reason as well. What a shame.

    Comments about Acorn SLIPPER SOCKS for Men and Women:

    These slippers are EVERYTHING that I remember from having something like them as a youth ( 55 years ago). AS we get older it is comforting to find things that remind us of our youth, these are one of those things. I have no idea what brand the "Muck lucks" of my youth were, but these are all that I remember. Every detail is what I wanted... The sock comes up the leg high enough, and they stay "On" the foot bed is more padded than I remember, which is very nice, the quality of the REAL leather is good and the workmanship is as good as you would want. These has brought a very old memory to the present.
    I should note that I have not had this type of slipper for 55 years because they were not that easy to find. I have had other types of slippers, non were as good as these for me. Thanks ACORN for making me feel like a "Kid" again.

    Comments about Acorn SLIPPER SOCKS for Men and Women:

    I have had two previous pair. The wool was warm, comfortable, and stretched just enough to be comfortable. I liked the suede sole without padding. It was what I wanted, warm socks with a bit of a sole for comfort and durability. I received a new pair and will be returning them. They are the same size as previous pairs but are impossibly tight and uncomfortable. The sole is the identical size to my old ones but the wool upper is nothing like my previous pairs. I am so disappointed that I have lost access to a long time favorite. Change is not always an improvement. (emerging information and experience with "earthing" says wool and leather do not interfere with the connection to benefit. Artificial material padding in between knit wool and suede sole destroys this effect.)

      Comments about Acorn SLIPPER SOCKS for Men and Women:

      Purchased the forest pattern and found them to be very cute plus warm and comfortable. I love wearing these with a flannel nightgown to keep my legs warm, and the slipper part adds great cushion so feet feel like they are walking on air. An added bonus was my legs felt as if they had a massage from the added support.
      Purchased a second pair as a back up since I wouldn't want to be without.

      Comments about Acorn SLIPPER SOCKS for Men and Women:

      Bought these for warmth to wear in house. Plenty warm, but uncomfortable to wear, because the soles don't stay on the bottom. The inner cushioning has no shape, to keep my foot in place. As I walk and turn, my foot slips to either side, and then I'm walking on the sides. You've been making these for years. Didn't anyone test them before ? I can't be the only person with this complaint. The size is men's 9 - 10 which is perfect front to back, so I don't think they're too big.

      Comments about Acorn SLIPPER SOCKS for Men and Women:

      This was a gift for my husband. He had been wearing the same pair of slipper socks for over 25 years and they finally developed a small hole. (The Maine folks knew how to make slipper socks!) He wears a 10.5 narrow shoe, so I thought the Large would fit, based on reviews. The sock part fit okay -- but it came up to his knee, which he didn't like. The foot was too short. Just for kicks I tried them on myself (women's 8.5) but couldn't get the sock over my calf. Guess they're going back. :-(

        Bought these for the hubby for christmas. He loves them but they re too big. I bought thrm for his size foot, but they run way too big, which is a bummer because he says he feels like he's flopping around the house in them.

            Love these slipper socks. They do run small. My husband received these as s gift. A size medium men's fits me, his wife. I wear a woman's size 8 shoe. These are just a bit large on me. They are the most comfortable and warm slipper socks I have ever owned. Very happy that they are now mine!
