Wool felt slippers with low back and outdoor(ish) sole

I've had Giesswein wool slippers for years and love the ones with soft soles, but I'm now after the former wool-felt type with a more rigid/hard-wearing sole and a low-back so I can just slide my feet into them.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I've looked at the Birkenstock Zermatt, the Gumbies Outback ones and some called Kyrgies (handmade by Kyrgyzstan artisans 😁!). Toast do some nice-looking ones too but I'm not sure how sturdy the sole would be. Any recs much appreciated!

Hafflinger slippers are beautiful.

Second Hafflinger. Really comfortable and nice designs.

I've had both mahabis and gumbies, both great but seeing as gumbies are a lot cheaper I'd go for those. What did annoy me about my mahabis was the extra outdoor sole you could press stud on never used to stay clipped, so I never used that part, they were fine without though.

Would add my gumbies have a very tough rubber sole and I wear them to nip outside no problem but they're still super comfy.

Another vote for Haflinger. Really well made.

Thanks all, very useful. WhatTheFeck how did you find the sizing for Gumbies?
