    Greys Outdoor Slipper Boot

    These seem to be restocked FYI. That is all.

    FYI, I'm going to have an 11 in brown or a 12 in gray pair of these to return in a few days. Would rather one of you guys got them than just return, so post here if interested in either and I'll let you know once I try them on.

      After seeing the post here, I had to check out the slippers/boots. I must say, I am intrigued. Has anyone else bought a pair? What are your thoughts/feedback?

        I ordered a pair. Will report back once received.

          I bought a pair of the Greys Outdoor Slippers (basically the low-top version of the boot), and I love them. Very cozy but my feet don't get sweaty. I've only been wearing them for a week or so though, so can't speak to durability.

          I will say, that Huckberry claims they are "true to size", but, at least in my experience, that was not at all the case. I ordered my normal tennis shoe size (13) and was absolutely swimming in them. I returned them for a 12 and they're still loose enough to where I think I'd be comfortable wearing socks, but not so loose that wearing them barefoot is an issue.

            That's interesting. I noticed that the product page for the boot says to size down if you're between sizes, while the page for the low version says to size up. I assume they're sized the exact same. If I get a pair, I guess I'll have to use the buy 2 on the credit card strategy.

            Sizing information seems to be close to worthless in general--there's no way to tell if people are talking about the same things or have the same expectations. For example, I can't understand why Greats (and the guy who reviewed them on the main site) say the Royale runs 1/2 size large. I had to go up 1/2 size to get the right fit.

              Yeah, I realized after I bought and returned the first pair that my adblocker was blocking reviews on Huckberry. But once I figured that out, I started digging into some of the lower star reviews (at least for the slippers), there seemed to be others that also had problems with them being too big. There were also some complaints about durability (so I guess we'll see), but everything looked and felt good out of the box in my case.

                I have a very nice pair of fairly expensive, handmade (in Maine) buffalo leather moccasins that I've been wearing for 5+ years now (and they still look great), but the biggest downside is the inability to walk outside in them in anything less than perfectly dry weather. I love the look of these Grey's Outdoor Boots with the rubber soles. Is it worth spending the ~$100 to get the wool boot and the ability to wear them inside and out?

                  Hi, I've been looking at this boot. Does anyone have any first hand comparisons with the Allbird slip on's?

                    So, yeah, they do run big. The 11s are a bit big on my usual 11.5 size feet. So, posting the Grey 12s over on swap and shop. Yours for what I paid for them.

                      My wife has allbird wool runners, and assuming the allbird slips are the same material as the runners, the Greys are thicker and have a bit more structure. Sorry, I know that’s not the most direct comparison, but hopefully it helps a little.

                        I got mine (charcoal with gum sole), and wore them basically the entire weekend with everything from sweats to khakis. I usually wear a size 10.5 in most shoes, and went with the 10s, which fit me perfectly. My feet sometimes sweat, and I'll say, when I wore them without socks I noticed some minor feet moisture. With socks, no problems at all. Highly recommend to anyone on the fence.
