These are a great pair of slippers! I bought them for my dad who has Alzheimers. We have went through 3 or 4 pairs of different slippers now and because of the accidents he has, not all of them survive washing alot! These do and come out great everytime, washing and drying. With having to change him all the time, the velcro straps are a must have and a wonderful thing! The best part about these slippers though, is he has bad feet and this is the first pair that he actually said something about his feet not hurting and with his disease that is huge to me! If these ever go bad I will bye another pair for sure! Or just to have an extra pair!
