Totes Isotoner Men's Terry Slippers
The names "Totes" and "Isotoner" have gained a certain exclusive ring to the products bearing these names. Umbrellas, gloves, rainwear, rubber footware, and slippers are products that are produced by the Cincinnati, Ohio based Totes Isotoner Corporation. Over the years, I have owned Totes Isotoner umbrellas, gloves, as well as a pair of Terry Men's Slippers. The latter product is the subject of this particular review. For men, slippers are not a fashion statement. There chief function is to provide for 'us guys' a way to keep our feet warm on cold days.
Anything else that they do is a bonus. Totes' Terry Men's Slippers come in two colors: light blue and brown. The inside is flannel lined while the outside is terry cloth. The best part, one that many guys like, is that the sole is indoor/outdoor usable. Thus, if you need to run out and pick up the paper tossed in your driveway or take the trash out, your slippers will probably not be ruined [unless you continually walk on ice or snow, I imagine].
Additionally, the soles hold up well to prevent dangerous slipping which is a common problem of many slippers when the soles begin to wear out before the rest of the slipper. Sizes offered are close to shoe sizes. I wear 9 1/2 or 10 dress shoes and the slippers I own are 9 1/2 - 10 1/2. Sure, you don't need the support that shoes offer but it is nice to have slippers fit rather snuggly without drooping off your feet when walking around. After six months of constant use, my slippers are showing only minimal wear, mostly on the inside bottom of my right slipper. The internal stitching is showing no signs of loosening while the outside reflects only minimal creases on the top. At $20-25 per pair, the cost of Totes Isotoner slippers is higher than most other brands. Still, the wear and tear is minimal, my feet stay warm, and I get to take out the trash [oh, joy!] without having to switch over to shoes. I doubt that you will find a better pair of men's slippers for this price.
