The Giesswein Mens & Women's Boiled Wool Slipper Veitsch presents a backless design and an upper made from 100% boiled wool material that offers numerous benefits: it's breathable and wicks moisture away to help keep feet dry reducing the chances of getting sweaty feet, it's temperature-regulating in all seasons to ensure feet stay at a comfortable temperature all year long. This boiled wool slipper also comes with a slew of orthopedic features. A removable Ultra Comfort Footbed accommodates custom orthotics while a wide toe box allows the toes the freedom to move naturally within the slipper. A rocker heel encourages stability and proper gait; and a waterproof rubber outsole with added traction makes it possible for one to easily walk from room to room indoors.

By wearing the Geisswein men's and women's boiled wool Veitsch slipper one will not only experience a healthy comfortable fit, but wear a product from a brand that's also committed to keeping the environment green.

Shoe Arch: Excellent arch support

I walk around with a 25-lb backpack for work. When I come home, all I want is foot comfort. These slippers fit the bill! They're warm but not sweaty, supportive but not restrictive, non-slip but not clunky, and I love that they're all-natural materials. Bonus is they haven't gotten that slipper smell (sorry to be crass), which has been a real deterrent from continued wear. I will recommend these, and have already, to anyone looking for lux slippers.

My wife hates when I wear shoes in the house but slippers have no arch support. They leave my feet and back killing when I'm on my feet a lot. These slippers are awesome!!! Better than Keen shoes and equal to Chacos!!

Nice 'about the house' slipper. I pulled out the intersole and inserted my own orthodic and 'presto-whamo!' I was in love! Would have been nice if I could have ordered more, but you are out of stock in many sizes; hint, hint: order more!

    3. What size shoes should I order?
    4. We also have a sizing chart on our web site. This sizing chart can be used for European to U.S. sizing conversions and has the approximate inches per size. Keep in mind that most retail shoes are medium width.

      The difference between shoe lengths is approximately 1/3 inch and the difference between widths is approximately 1/8 inch.

      If your shoes are too small or too big, we offer free exchanges. Please contact us at 1-866-324-3338 so we can assist you with your exchange.

      If your shoes are too small or too big, we offer free exchanges. Please contact us at 866.324.3338 so we can assist you with your exchange.

    11. I need the shoes or foot care product by tomorrow.

Once you have attempted to find the package and it is still missing, call us and we will assist you.

    15. My bank shows I was charged twice for my order.
    16. What you are seeing is an "authorization" for the charge, not the actual "charge." The authorization is made when you place the order to inform your bank to reserve the funds to complete the purchase. The actual charge replaces the authorization when the order is processed. The actual charge may not exceed the authorization charge.

    17. I received defective shoes.

We will call you if this means that your order will be delayed. If you are concerned about your order, please call customer service and we can look into it for you.

    28. I returned my shoes. Why did you give me a store credit?
    29. If you return shoes after the allowable return period, you may be offered store credit. Please read our Return Policy here.

    30. I want to send a pair of your shoes to someone as a gift but I do not want them to know how much I spent.
    31. The cost of the products will not be included on the packing slip.

    32. Can you bill my insurance company or can I use Medicare to buy my shoes?
    33. No, we do not work with insurance companies or Medicare. The codes on some pages are provided as a guideline in selecting products that adhere to the strict guideline established by the U.S. government. The Therapeutic Shoe Bill (which pays for shoes for at risk Diabetics) was designed to ensure that at-risk diabetics were actually fit by a skilled practitioner to check the fit of the shoe on the foot to decrease the odds of amputation.

    34. I need a shoe with great support and extra depth.
    35. All of our shoes are orthopedic, diabetic or therapeutic.

      90 % of our shoes have removable insoles and have added depth. Each shoe will specify under "Special Features" if it has removable insoles and added depth.

    36. How do I use my orthotics in my new shoes?
    37. Go to here for instructions.

      It is suggested that you remove the existing inserts and unlace the shoe completely. Check the length of the new insert against the existing insert, and trim to fit if necessary. Insert the new insert making sure to butt the heel and roll the orthotic into the toe section. Next put the shoes on and stand up, making sure the insert is lying flat. Next, lace the shoes to conform to the unique shape of your foot.

    38. I am normally a 2E but the shoe I am looking at is not offered in a 2E. What width do I choose?
    39. Each manufacturer gets to establish their own width standards. Some width sizes are in even numbers and some are in odd numbers. A 2E with one manufacturer might be the same as a 3E with another. Again, the difference between each width size is about 1/8th of an inch.

    40. What is the difference between a 2E and a 5E in a slipper?
    41. A 2E and a 5E are the same width for slippers, but the upper is enhanced by ˝” to allow for the increased width.

    42. My Doctor says I need a shoe with a good arch support, what would you suggest?
    43. Most of the shoe & slipper brands we carry have shoes with excellent arch support. If you have questions on a specific brand or style, feel free to call our customer service staff at 1-866-324-2228.

      In addition, most of our shoes have removable footbeds to accommodate your custom orthotics or over the counter arch support insoles. You can put arch supports insoles into any shoe that has a removable footbed. Shoes with a removable insole or shoes that have extra depth make it easier to put an insole or arch support in them.

    44. What is the difference between a 3/4 arch support and a full length?
    45. A 3/4 arch support extends from the ball of the foot (right behind the toes) to the heel. A full length insole extends the entire length of the foot. A 3/4 length insole is more appropriate for dress shoes or those with hammertoes, crossed toes or bunions that may need that extra room. The full length insole offers cushioning the entire length of the foot and is trimmable with ordinary household scissors.

    46. Can I order 2 pair of shoes and send one pair vack it they do not fit
    47. Yes, you will need to pay return postage for returns. See our Return Information page.

    48. Can I change information about the order I have already placed?
    49. Please call us immediately at 1-866-324-3338 and tell us your order number (after the last dash in the subject line of your e-mail confirmation) and your full name. If your order has not been processed for shipping, we can change information on the order.

    50. What makes a shoe a diabetic shoe?
    51. There are four main characteristics of a diabetic shoe:

      • Avaialble in at least 3 widths (N, M, W, XW, etc.)
      • Made of a protective material (normally leather)
      • Solid means of closure (tie or Velcro)
      • Extra 3/16" interior depth to accomodate orthotics

    52. What are European sizes?
    53. European sizes are based on a metric measurement. They are not normally available in widths. Please visit our sizing chart.

    54. What is the difference between extra, double and super depth?
    55. Extra-depth includes all diabetic shoes (by definition) that incorporates 3/8" interior depth

      Double or extra-depth is 1/8" more, which makes it 1/2 inches deep

      Super depth is at least 9/16 of an ince

    56. What will happen if I refuse my shipment?
    57. When you place an order, you are making a commitment to purchase that item, and your payment will be processed at the time the order is placed. If your order is returned to us or our manufacturer, and there was no error on our part, or, if you refuse delivery of the package after ordering, you will be assessed a 20% restocking fee. Original shipping charges are not refundable. You will be responsible for the carrier's return shipping charges for refused items that are shipped back to us, our manufacturer, or our warehouse. All such fees will be deducted prior to issuing a credit or refund, or billed to the credit card provided during registration and/or checkout.
