Comments about Product: I LOVED these slippers - but a little less than a year after I got them the insole started coming up. I was disappointed - really hoped they'd last longer for the price. But before that they were GREAT - warm, comfy, great support.
Comments about Product: I just received these slippers today as a Christmas gift. They are adorable, warm and very comfortable. I put them on as soon as I opened them and have had them on the rest of the day. I love them. They are true to size and have a low arch support. If you have a very high arch you'll probably never feel the arch support because it's low, but it is there. I love that the sole is wearable outdoors so I can go out to the mailbox without having to change from slippers to shoes. I will get a LOT of wear out of these slippers.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
