The Giesswein Innsubruck Boiled Wool Slipper: Casual, Comfortable and Made with Wool

The Innsubruck Boiled Wool Slipper is a casual looking house shoe that has an upper made of 100% boiled wool material, which is thermostatic and breathable to keep feet comfortable and dry. A lot of the slipper's orthopedic features come from its Ultra Comfort Removable footbed with suede lining: it has arch support and an established heel cup for stability and pronation control; the metatarsal support helps release tension while the roomy toe box design allows enough room for the toes and foot to spread, encouraging circulation to the foot. The footbed also has CARBOSAN® cushioning and is made with natural rubber and recycled carbon - features that will help the footbed retain its cushioned, anatomical shape. The outsole not only has added traction for optimal footing, but is durable, non-marking, and waterproof; you won't have to worry about damaging your slippers while collecting the mail or newspaper outside. Wearers will appreciate the pull tab at the heel and elastic goring at the instep for easy on/off. The Giesswein Innsubruck Boiled Wool will keep your feet comfy and healthy at home; and since it was made with recyclable and renewable materials, you'll be doing your part in helping the environment stay green.

Giesswein Innsubruck Boiled Wool Slippers have these features:

  • 100% natural wool upper provides breathability
  • As a natural thermostatic material, wool insulates and ventilates as needed
  • Wool helps reduce foot odor because of its moisture-wicking properties
  • Boiled wool is machine-washable: air dry only
  • Ultra Comfort Removable Footbed
    • Lined with suede for soft, all day comfort
    • CARBOSAN® cushioned footbed: lightweight construction made with natural rubber and recycled carbon
    • High arch support for pronation control and heel cup for balance
    • Metatarsal support located at the ball of foot helps to release tension by allowing the toes to naturally separate
    • Roomy toe box allows room for toes and foot to spread: helps increase circulation to the foot by encouraging natural muscle movement
  • Accommodates custom orthotics and arch support inserts
  • Patented non-marking, waterproof outsole with added traction
  • Giesswein uses recyclable and reusable materials (wool, water, and natural rubber)
  • Made in Austria and Italy
Colors: Charcoal

Comfortable indoor/outdoor shoe, December 23, 2014

Shoe Size: Felt true to size
Shoe Width: Felt true to width
Shoe Arch: Excellent arch support

These shoes are extremely comfortable, supportive and versatile. I wear them both indoor and out. I would give them a 9 out of 10. However, I would have preferred a softer material inside such as a plush wool for the cost of the shoe.

These had a wonderful arch support and were warm, but they run too big. I am going to send them back and order a smaller size. I never had to wear a smaller size before.

I often wear heels most of the day, so when I get home my feet are sore and in bad need of some TLC. Slipping into these slippers is just what I need at the end of the day. They are soft & warm (though not too warm, which means I can wear them most of the year) and the arch support is excellent! The only other thing I\'ll mention is because these are whole sizes only (and EU sizes) you might want to size down if you are in a half size. I did and they fit perfectly!

Do you have any physical store locations in my area?

No. is an online store with our warehouse and administrative office based out of Walpole, MA. Please call 1-866-324-3338 or email for any questions.

What size shoes should I order?

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.

When will I get my order?

Please read our Total Delivery Time calculation page to help you estimate your package's time of arrival.

How do I know if the shoes I want are in stock?

Once your order is placed, you will be contacted as soon as possible if the order is not in stock. Once your order ships, you will be e-mailed the tracking number to track the package. If you have any questions, you can always call us at 1-866-324-3338 to check availability.

I need the shoes or foot care product by tomorrow.

We do not ship overnight.

We offer express shipping which is available for most shoes and products. With express shipping, you will receive the shoes, products or slippers in two to three days plus processing time.

How do I return shoes?

Please read through our Return Information page.

How do I exchange shoes?

Please read through our Exchange Information page.

Can you bill my insurance company or can I use Medicare to buy my shoes?

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.

I need a shoe with great support and extra depth.

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.

How do I use my orthotics in my new shoes?

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.

I am normally a 2E but the shoe I am looking at is not offered in a 2E. What width do I choose?

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.

What is the difference between a 2E and a 5E in a slipper?

A 2E and a 5E are the same width for slippers, but the upper is enhanced by " to allow for the increased width.

My Doctor says I need a shoe with a good arch support, what would you suggest?

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.

What is the difference between a 3/4 arch support and a full length?

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.

Can I order 2 pair of shoes and send one pair back if they do not fit?

Yes, you will need to pay return postage for returns. See our Return Information page.

What makes a shoe a diabetic shoe?

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

What are European sizes?

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

What is the difference between extra, double and super depth?

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

What is the status of my order?

If your shoes have shipped, you should have received an e-mail with the tracking number. If not, please call us at 1-866-324-3338 with your order number and/or full name.

The tracking information for my purchase says that my package has been delivered, but I did not get it.

If the tracking number says the package was delivered but you did not receive it, please check your front, side and back yards. Ask neighbors if they received the package by mistake or if they saw where the UPS or USPS worker put the package. If the package was shipped to an apartment/condo complex or an office building, check with the front desk or management office. If you still do not find the package, call UPS with the tracking information and ask for assistance. Once you have attempted to find the package and it is still missing, call us and we will assist you.

My bank shows I was charged twice for my order.

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.

I received defective shoes.

We want you to be 100% satisfied with your order. You may return defective shoes within the return period. Please call us at 1-866-324-3338 about your defective shoes and we will set up a free return for you. Normal wear and tear of the shoes is not considered a defect.

Why does my order say Pending Review?

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.

I did not receive a packing slip in my box and I need to exchange or return my shoes.

Our Exchange & Return Form can be downloaded from the Return Information or Exchange Information pages on our web site. Please print the form and fill it out.

I have returned my shoes and do not show a credit to my account.

Please note: After your credit is processed, it may take an additional week for the funds to show in your account. Most banks take approximately a week to transfer funds on a credit.

I returned my shoes. Why did you give me a store credit?

If you return shoes after the allowable return period, you may be offered store credit. Please read our Return Policy here.

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.

The cost of the products will not be included on the packing slip.
