Sorel Felt Moc Slipper Review
As the cold air starts to sneak into our houses with the arrival of winter, having a warm pair of slippers can be much appreciated for some. Ever since I was young, my feet would always get cold during the winter and having a good pair of slippers is a must. I’ve been trying out the Sorel Felt Moc Slippers to see how they hold up against the cold winter weather inside and outside of my house.
As temperatures drop outside, I try not to crank up my heat too much inside as the winter heating bills can get pretty expensive. Having temps between 66-72 degrees inside is good for me and then if I am still cold I start to add on more clothes. Given that my feet and many other peoples feet get cold during the winter, slippers can be a great way to keep your feet warm which helps keep your whole body warm.
The Sorel Felt Moc Slipper is meant to work inside the house and the occasional outside walk. The bottom of the Felt Moc Slippers is made of a sticky rubber that gives you traction if you have wood floors or something other than carpet inside. It isn’t super durable since the mocs are intended for indoors, but they hold up well for what they are intended for. For warmth, the Sorel Felt Mocs are wool lined with a felt outside. This wool lining has kept my feet plenty warm both inside and outside. After 2 months of testing these mocs, I haven’t had cold feet yet.
There are a couple areas of concern with the Sorel Felt Moc Slippers. First, the material on the outside of the shoe is getting pretty ragged looking only after a couple months of using them. This happened pretty fast after I started wearing them. This means they will not look like they do in the stock photo after a few weeks of use. The 2nd issue I came across is the sizing. They seem to fit very loose, so if you are ordering these, I suggest going down a size or trying them on in a store. If you wear a thick sock, the slippers seem to fit a little better. Last, they are really low cut so they don’t do well at keeping the snow out in case you have to walk through snow in these. In the stock photos, the slippers looked like they go a little higher up on the foot which isn’t the case.
Overall, I have been a little disappointed with the Sorel Felt Moc Slippers performance as it retails for $80 and I was expected a little more.
