    I need good slippers.

    Has anyone found good slippers with arch support? I have tried the Dearfoam, Isotoner, etc. I have tried some that have memory foam. They are not good. I have read good and bad reviews about Acorn brand. I found some that started with "H", can't remember the brand now, but the reviews said they fall apart in six months or less.

    Any ideas? I love my Nothinz, but find I wear the outer side out too fast by pronating.

    My grandmother used to wear Daniel Green brand slippers. I believe they had arch supports and I think they are still sold.

    I wear Halflinger (I'm not sure of the spelling). They have a wool top and very warm. Great arch support.

    Have you thought about getting Crocs? They have many different style now. The real Crocs have good arch support and they last forever. I am using a pair right now that are more fitted with no holes and I LOVE them.

    You could try putting arch supports into a quality shoe slipper. Like an LL Bean moc.

    Other than that, no ideas. I also like good house slippers (in need of a pair now, I've worn holes in these!) and I've got my eye on a nice pair of LL Bean moccasin slippers.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have a similar problem and recently bought some Acorns. Love them so far! My feet get very cold in the winter and they are very warm. The arch support is excellent and if they hold up, they'll be a good investment.

    I have a pair of 'houseshoes' I bought from Land's End years ago. They are still in good shape and have great support.
    Got fabric?

    I second the Crocs - I have 4 pairs. I like the ones with the lining - so warm and comfy. I have plantar faciitis, so good support is a necessity.

    I'll have to get some for my hubby. He had the same thing (I'd never heard of it). Have you tried the off-brand ones at Walmart?
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I have had surgery on both feet and still have to be careful of plantar fascitis and achiles tendon problems; which is all related. My slippers were $70 a few years ago and still in good shape. I always think of Tempurpedic - the mattress, but the first 3 letters still visible on my slippers is ROM. Fleece and foam are not support. I could walk all day in my slippers and my feet love them. Guess I had better do a "search" so I can replace these one day.
