Q: Recently received and love my second pair of sheepskin tall slippers. Can you tell me a little about the sheepskin insoles? They are a bit thin on the sole and know it would be more comfortable with the liners. How substantial are they? Are they washable?
Thanks! Judy Stevens
A: Thanks for the interest in our liners, Some of our products, like all the molded rubber sole styles, and the Santa Fe Moccasins, have a removable/replaceable insole that is washable. These are in several types, and have either a foam back glued to the sheepskin or leather, or just sheepskin. These will also work in other shoes, boots and slippers. Our sheepskin moccasin line, like the Colorado Moccasin, have a sewn in insole that is not removable. After some time, a foam and sheepskin insole can be added on top of the existing insole to add more padding. This 2nd insole usually does not fit when the slippers are new, as the additional insole would make the slippers too tight. If your slippers are big, the insole would tighten the fit. I consider our insoles to be the best on the market,
Q: Just sent some questions, but forgot to ask: I wear a size 10 women's. What size insert would I get?
A: a size 28 would fit best. you may need to trim it slightly at the heal, but it would be the best size to insure it is long enough.
Q: I have a pair of your Colorado Moccasin slippers and love them. I am thinking of ordering insoles for a pair of boots. I take a womens size 7. Which size insole should I order?
A: The size 25 centimeter should work just fine. Any of these will trim to fit so if it is a little long you can trim the length at the heal. I like the sheepskin and orthopedic foam ($20) for use in the Colorado moccasins.
Q: What size would be a size11 and what size would be a 101/2?
You would get size 28 sheepskin insole for size 10 1/2 and size 29 insole for size11. These are designed to trim to fit if need be.
Hope that helps,
Q: I wear size 8.5 slippers. What size replacement insoles should I order? Thank you!
A: I would recommend a size 26. Trim to fit if necessary.
Q: I have a size 8 1/2 sheepskin slippers with leather sole. What size insert should I order?
A: Good morning Howie,
I would get the plain sheepskin insoles size 26 for your slippers. They can be trimmed in the heel if you need to.
Hope that helps,
Q: I have a pair of your shearling slippers, I was wondering about replacing the insoles vs buying another pair and I cannot see how I remove the old insole, most of the shearling wool is gone from that now but does it pull out or does the other one simply go over it? and if It goes over it what about the spots that still have wool (or whatever), wouldn't it cause unevenness?
Thanks for the reply
A: Good morning,
Our slippers do not have removable insoles. Once the wool starts wearing down like you are describing, some customers put in the sheep/foam insoles. Others send them in for repair and some like to get replacement slippers. We offer different options for you so you can just let us know what you would prefer to do. We are coming up on our busiest time of the year and will not be taking repairs until after February 1st.
Hope that helps,
Q: Men's size 10 shoe
Women's size 9 shoe
What size insoles would we each need to order? Your chart doesn't distinguish between men's & lady's shoe sizes.
A: I would order a 28 for the men's 10 and a 27 for the women's 9. Trim the heel to fit if required.
Q: Can these be made thicker and “deeper”?
A: We have 1/8, 1/4, and 3/8 inch foam that can be used as backing for the insoles. If you would like something thicker than 1/8" on the sheepskin, you will need to call us to place your order.
Q: Do you have sheepskin insoles for square-toe boots?
A: All of our insoles can be trimmed to fit with a good scissors. For a square toe boot, I would recommend going up a couple sizes and using the original insoles in your boots as a pattern to trim them.
