I live in Minnesota, where staying warm is essential. Just opening my front door to get my mail means a blast of -8 degrees F air hits me…and swirls around my house. At least my feet are protected in a pair of Giesswein Vent wool slippers.
Warm, Not Hot
I’m not sure what I did before I tested these cozy, comfortable kicks. Actually, I am. I had slippers that were warm enough, actually too warm. Then my feet would sweat and then get cold and clammy. Wearing the Giesswein Vent wool slippers is an entirely different experience.
Made in Austria out of boiled wool, which is naturally resistant to moisture and odor, the Vent slippers provide incredible temperature regulation. Its the wool thing; these slippers can breathe! So, my feet stay warm and never overheat. Thank you, sheep!
As much as I love the wool uppers, I have long admired the Giesswein brand for the incredible removable cork and latex footbeds. They provide arch and metatarsal support, and with wear they mold to my feet. I am prone to foot problems, including plantar fasciitis, if I don’t wear supportive footwear. It’s been weeks now, and I haven’t had any problems.
