Are they all that and a bag of chips? Do they live up to their claim of being 'the world's most comfortable slipper'?

Their adverts chase me all over FB and recently on the tube - I'd like to get some new slippers, and am wondering whether it's worth getting a decent pair, instead of some basic M&S jobbies

If you'd recommend them, which style? And how's their sizing?

I was followed by their ads relentlessly. Went for a really nice and much cheaper pair of felt slippers called Pantouf from amazon instead. They’re lovely.

I would like some real life views as the hype seems a bit ott.

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.

Their ads are stalking me too. I am interested but they would have to be bloody amazing for that price

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.

These Norwegian slippers are my absolute favourites. I have the grey felt pair and I love them. And they're on sale this weekend!

I bought some but sent them back - the rubber sole bit meant that you couldn't wear them with socks because it pulled the socks off when you walked along.

I bought some toms slippers instead, love them.

They are mens but quite similar to the mahabis. And also on sale (tempted to buy another pair now I've seen that, although pair #1 are still going strong after a year).

They look nice but I had to send the first pair back as the sole came away and I’ve had to mend the new ones twice. I won’t be buying again

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 the recs - wondered if they were style over substance and all hype, apparently yes they are!

Will check out your recommendations, thank you

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!

I have had mine for about 4 years now and I love them. They’re even starting to look a bit haggard and asked for a new pair for Christmas.

In the winter I actually keep Them under my desk at work, (were pretty casual) so when I get in with wet feet I slip them straight on.

On the other hand I’ve not tried the alternative fabric “summer” ones so I don’t know what those are like.

If anyone does want to try them here’s a link to get 10% discount btw:
