Q: I have brick floors. Which would wear better rubber sole or leather sole? I have had leather but I don't believe that rubber was available.

Asked by: Mary Lou Banks - 11/7/2015
A: hi! We added our crepe sole about 2 years ago for our customers that wanted better traction than the leather. If traction is your main concern. the crepe is better. The leather should not be slippery on brick, so I would get the leather if you liked the last sole you had. The feel and thickness is the same.

Q: Dear Sir: My sister-in-law wears a 10.5 shoe, and has very narrow feet. She usually takes a AA in a shoe. How can I be sure this slipper won't slide off her feet? Can you make it narrow enough?

Asked by: Denise - 11/15/2015
A: Hello,

If you were to order a size 10 in Sundance Unisex that would work for your sister in-law. You can add any special needs or instructions in the comments section at checkout. For her narrow foot we would be able to pick a thicker wool for her.

Thanks for your question,

Q: how is unisex different then just ordering a man's or ladies size?

Asked by: nancy - 1/2/2016
A: We have developed our own sizing over the past 40 years, and we can fit almost everyone. For customer who have ordered before and know what size they like, we ask that they order the Sundance unisex size. New customers can let us know what size they usually wear, if it is men's or women's , wide, narrow or average, and then we will send the correct Sundance size. There is only 1/4 inch between sizes, so most people can wear more than one size. It s also helpful for us to know if you like a loose or snug fit, and if you like to wear heavy sox or use barefoot(recommended).

Q: Hi, Would it be your slippers I purchased in Tucson at the annual street fair about 5 years ago? They are still so good and going strong. Worn all the time, (especially in winter months) even outside on quick trips to store. Best slippers I e ever owned. I love them and even tough, I figure these will last another few years it would be nice to have a backup, or perhaps give as gift. AnywAy, no label, just remember they came from Colorado. “10” written in ink on soles. Amazing these are still going strong. Soles are smooth but still totally intact. Just normAl wear to inside sheep fur, especially, at heel areas. Phenomenal!

Asked by: Dale - 11/2/2017
A: Hey Dale,

You found us! We did the show in Tucson 5 years ago. Unfortunately, we have slowed down on our shows since Jean and Barry are close to retirement. I am so glad your slippers have been hanging in there for so long. We strive to make products that our comfy and durable.

Q: I have never owned a pair of your slippers but I have owned many pairs of slippers made like yours. I normally wear a size 101/2 but I have ordered a 9 before and in a short while they have stretched so bad and especially the heel is so big and sloppy the slippers are unusable. How are your slippers different and reinforced to prevent this? Are the heels reinforced to keep them tight? I would like a slipper that will last many winters, not just one. Thanks, Stan

Asked by: Stan - 11/2/2017
A: Good morning Stan,

Our slippers do last a lot longer then a year for sure. They are real shearling sheepskin and will stretch out quite a bit. If you usually wear size 10.5 you can order that or even a size 10. We suggest that you try them on the carpet for about 15 minutes. You want a snug fit with bare feet since they will stretch some. As far as reinforcing the slippers, we could add a heel cap to them to keep them from stretching in the back or you can order the deluxe slippers for reinforcement in the toes. The heel cap would be a custom order you would need to call in and unfortunately we will not be taking any custom orders until after February 1st. This is our busiest time of the year and we are a small family company.

Q: What is the lining of the slippers and after waring for several months does it flatten out? thanks

Asked by: Gina - 1/28/2019
A: Thanks for the interest in our sheepskin slippers. We use 100% USA sheepskin. This means the wool remains on the hide for the tanning process...it is a leather and wool product. With wear, the wool will compress. We sell a replacement insole that is foam glued to sheepskin that you can slide into your slipper after the wool has packed out...most people purchase this insert after about a year of wear.
I hope that answers you questions! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!

Asked by: Bob Bertsch - 3/31/2019
A: Bob-
Sorry for the late reply. Either the 11 or the 12 would probably work for you... the 11 would be tighter, and may require a barefoot break-in period, where the 12's would be more roomy, and allow for a sock right away.

Asked by: Ed Rolita - 9/16/2019
A: Hi Ed! Most people can wear more than one size in our slippers. I think they are true to size. If you want a snug, bare foot fit, order the 9,5. If you prefer a little more room and the option of wearing socks, order the 10. Either one would work for you and they are both going to stretch. We have developed our own patterns over the last 45 years, and they are not comparable to foreign sizing.

Q: I have a pair if your sheep skin moccasins. The are the leather sole. I know that in the past you made crape soles and stopped. The sheep skin on the bottom inside of my slippers are very flattened. Consequently my feet get cold from the bottom. I think I need a thicker sole. Do you have any old slippers with the crape sole in a size 11? If so how much are they?

Asked by: Doug - 10/1/2020
A: Thanks for your interest. From what you are describing, I would recommend a $25 foam and sheepskin replacement insole For your size 11 slipper, I would get a 29 CM.. This would slide into your slipper and give you more padding. .I do have a size 11 with a crepe sole in stock at the moment, but this may be different than you expect, as many years ago I had a thicker crepe sole, about 3/4 inch thick, that was glued on. That crepe option is no longer available...the crepe I have now is about the same thickness as the leather, about 1/8 to 3/16. The crepe is a $15 option, $109 in a size 11. We are currently out of the crepe material...it is imported from Shrilanka, and supply chain is disrupted due to COVID...I have a few pair in stock, and size 11 is available at this time. If you want to try the crepe, please call, as I have taken them off the web site until we receive more material.

Asked by: Elise L Connolly - 11/19/2020
A: The Colorado Moccasins run pretty true to size up to about a ladies 9, where you would start to wear about a half size smaller. Just order what size you usually wear, and we will pick the appropriate pair for you.

Q: Any Promotions for Black Friday? Any pictures of the sole of the slippers? When ordering, do you order your normal size, or do you order a size forward to account for the fur on the inside?

Q: I wear a men's 7 1/2. Due to an accident I've lost width on my right foot. Size 8 fall off. How can I order with this type of issue? Here's to hoping you can help.

Asked by: Marty Bagnall - 12/1/2020
A: Sheepskin packs out and forms to your foot, so it will accommodate some width variations just in the nature of the material. If it is extreme and you feel custom fitting would be required, it is best to call us at (719) 479-2233.

Q: Do you make a slipper made out of Merino wool? Is Merino wool softer than the wool that you use in your slippers? Thanks.

Asked by: HJ - 12/7/2020
A: Merino wool is best used as a fiber product, and is generally used as a wool fiber in garments, not as a fur-on leather product. Our US tanned sheepskins are the byproduct of the meat industry, so are of mixed breeds. The tanning process is of the highest quality, and our hides are super soft!

Q: I wear a size 12 narrow for shoes and sneakers (e.g. New Balance size 12-B). Back of the foot/ankle is very narrow, front is closer to normal. What size would you recommend for your sheepskin slippers, and which type of sole? Thank you.

Asked by: Rob C. - 12/8/2020
A: I would recommend the size 12 Colorado Moccasin with the leather sole. If you specify that you have a narrow foot in the comments section at checkout, we will pick a tighter pair for you.

Q: Hi! One of your responses says that the colorado moccasin with leather sole is 5 inches tall when unrolled. Is it possible to have it be closer to 6"? And is it really 5" as that seems shorter than the foto? Thanks!

Asked by: Deborah - 12/8/2020
A: The Colorado Moccasins really are 5" tall with the cuff up. If you would like a taller slipper, the High Top Colorado Moccasin is a great choice!

Q: I'm interested in purchasing the Colorado Moccasin Sheepskin Slippers with Leather Sole but am uncertain about size because of my wide foot. I always get Women's size 10 to accommodate my width, but sometimes they're a bit too long and slip off my heel. I just stood on a ruler and the closest measurement I can provide looks to be 10" in length and 4 3/8" at the widest part of my foot. What size do you suggest? Thank you!

Asked by: Karen - 2/6/2021
A: Karen-

From your measurements, a custom pair may be needed. I would normally recommend a unisex size 8 for a 10" foot length, but 4 3/8" width would be about a unisex size 9 1/2 which is 10 3/4" long. Please contact us at [email protected] for custom orders

Q: Hello! I was interested in your Moccasin Sheepskin slippers with leather sole, but I had a couple questions. For the non-rubber sole, is that something I could stick a non-skid sticker to? I have extra, and I would rather not be wasteful of that material that I have. Also, how much cushion does your slipper offer? I have sesamoiditis, so I need to have a soft cushion between my foot and the hard floor. I've always used Acorn slippers with good results, but now I want to buy something ethically made in the USA. Thank you!

Asked by: Adrienne - 2/8/2021
A: The cushion provided by the Colorado Moccasin comes from a 5/8" shearling sheepskin footbed with an 1/8" bull-hide double sole. I would imagine that a non-skid sticker would work, but I cannot guarantee that it would stay put.

Q: I wear a Ladies 9..5 shoe and wonder if I should order a 9 in case of stretching? I have a pair from New Zealand stretched so much, my feet now flop in them, so I'm trying not to have that issue again. What do you recommend I do? (my foot it a wide but I wear regular usually. Tks!

Asked by: lynn - 7/23/2021
A: We take into account the stretch factor in our sizing, so all of our slippers should be snug to start. We would generally send a Unisex size 9 for a Ladies 9 1/2 order. My recommendation for you would be to order a "tight" Unisex size 9, which will be snug to start, but will avoid getting too sloppy after the break-in period.

Q: I need some extra room in the toes. (depth) How do they run?

Asked by: Brenda - 10/9/2021

Q: Is the entire slipper made in the USA?

Asked by: Lisa Clyde - 10/21/2021

Q: For the men's sheepskin slipper, the $95 ones, if I ordered the crepe rubber sole is that placed over the leather sole?

Asked by: Lloyd Stoll - 2/6/2022

Q: It is time to replace the original pair I bought many years ago for my husband. He has a wide foot. I recall needing to send in a template/trace of his feet with the original order. Is it still recommended to do so?

Asked by: Kathryn - 12/31/2022
A: We can generally accommodate up to about a EE width in our standard slippers without doing a custom order requiring a foot tracing. Just mention in the comments that he has a wide foot and we will send a wider pair.

Q: I wear a women's 6 (Euro 36). I prefer wearing medium to thick wool socks with shearling slippers, mainly because when I wear leather shoes directly next to my feet, they tend to get stinky. I like to be able to wash the socks. Should I order a 6.5 or will a 6 stretch a bit? I don't like tight-fitting slippers, but do want them to stay on my feet. Please advise :)

Asked by: Anna - 1/10/2023
A: If you do not want a tight fit and want to wear wool socks, I would recommend the 6 1/2. Even they may feel snug to start with socks, so a brief barefoot break-in period may be needed.

Asked by: Rowena - 1/24/2023

Asked by: Lila - 1/12/2024
A: The slippers are made with a chrome-tanned hide for the optimum comfort and durability and will darken slightly with age, but not significantly. Some waterproofing products such as mink oil will darken the hide when applied. Any waterproofing product or shoe polish designed for use with leather can be safely applied.
