These Coolers slippers have been specifically created with comfort in mind. They have Touch Fastening strap fastenings and some have a Touch Fastening strap to the back of the heel. They have a solid yet flexible sole that would be ideal for nipping to the wheelie bin with occasionally. However we do not recommend using them on wet ground. They contain two removable insoles which can add to the cushioning of the footbed, or they can be removed to adjust the height or perhaps you could replace with orthopaedic inserts if needed. I would recommend these for the elderly, sick or injured where adjustments and comfort are paramount.
