Now I see the issue. When I compare this new pair to the old, beat-to-hell true blues, I can easily why these slippers will fail pretty quickly. Even as beat up as the old pair are, the wool uppers are fully TWICE as thick as the wool uppers on this new pair. And scratchy on the skin, not the soft wool of the old ones. There's no way the old pair would have ever sprung a hole at the toe or anywhere else. The soles are much thinner on this new pair and are much less cushioned that my old pair, assuming the latex layer is thinner. Therefore, it is never going to mold to my foot as well, or create as high of an arch support as the old pair. This new pair is much lighter in weight than the old pair.
I have to admit that I am very, very disappointed in Haflinger's fall from grace. But they made sure their price points didn't fall! No sir! People who are new to Haflinger may think these slippers are the cat's meow. But those of us that have been with Haflinger for 10 or 20 years know what a fine, high-quality slipper Haflinger used to produce. They were the gold standard that all else aspired to.
So, I'm returning these and I'm starting my search for a new brand of boiled wool slipper or something similar. I know they're out there. Just gotta find them. But I can't justify spending this much for what I received today. Luckily, with companies like Amazon and Zappos, you can try to your hearts content until you find the perfect fit!
Haflinger.... man, what else can I say? I'm going to have to break up with you. It's you, not me. You have let yourself go to pot over the years. Now it's time to look around for that newer, sleeker, finer model. Cest laVie!
