I’ve seen a pair in RL (not mine, on a patient). They look really sturdy and well made, as well as being less fugly than your average M&S offering. However, the ones I saw were about 8 months old and were looking shabby so I don’t know how well they last given the eye watering cost. I’m not sure I’d shell out for them.
They’re not all that. The soles flip-flap around when you walk (there is a button which is supposed to hold them to the felt bit, but it kept popping open. And they didn’t wear well. I went back to Birkenstock Amsterdams as slippers.
I have some mahabis and they are good to wear when I'm at home and up and dressed and doing things. They are warm and sturdy and all that. I still love my darling smelly old sheepskin scuffs for comfort and warmth though. They were supposed to go in the bin when the Mahabis arrived but I still neeeeeeed them.
Thanks for recommendations all - v much appreciated! I ordered a pair of the Toms, as they looked lovely and as their one-for-one policy means another pair goes to a child, they seemed like a good choice. Looking forward to trying them out!
