Soft, cozy and hand felted from responsibly sourced New Zealand merino wool. The Astoria Noir is constructed the same as our best selling Astoria Classic and features a black, soft suede sole that is recommended for indoor and light outdoor wear. Shaped for a sleek and modern silhouette with minimalist styling. Warm, breathable and naturally odor resistant. Handmade in our Fair Trade workshop in Nepal.
For medium/average feet - size down 1/2 size for snug barefoot wear.
To wear with socks or for a medium/wide foot - order your usual size.
Narrow feet - size down one full size. Wide feet - size up one half size.
Slipper will loosen roughly 1/2 size with long term wear.
Best for: This slipper will fit best on a medium to medium/wide foot. Built with a generous toe box. This style may not be comfortable for women with a high arch or high instep as the slipper has a low instep (over top of foot). Please note that wool padded mid-sole does NOT provide structured arch support.
I recently purchased the Astoria Noir Wool House Slippers from Nootka, and I am thoroughly impressed with their comfort and quality. The natural wool construction provides warmth and breathability, while the cushioned sole offers substantial support for indoor wear. The minimalist design and noir color add a touch of understated elegance, making them a stylish addition to my at-home wardrobe. They strike the perfect balance between luxury and functionality, and I find them to be an essential part of my daily routine. Highly recommend for anyone seeking cozy, chic, and durable slippers.

I had been looking for a pair of wool house slippers for awhile that would be comfortable and keep my feet from smelling like they do with synthetic materials. These are great at keeping your feet warm and my feet don't smell!
I had no idea I had a high instep (referenced in the description) until I got these slippers, so they were a bit snug at first, but are getting more comfortable as I wear them. The small rim on the back of the slipper is a bit tight even though I ordered a size larger than normal (ordered a 41), and that can get a bit uncomfortable if I'm wearing them for a longer period of time, so next time I will order up (but think I need to order in mens to get a 42). Overall I'm pleased with these slippers

Women's Astoria Wool House Slippers
I purchased the slippers because of the soft bottom surface because my old slippers scratched up my wood floors. I bought my first pair sometime last year. At first I didn't like them because my heels hurt because they didn't have as much padding as my old slippers so I stopped wearing them for a few months. I started wearing them again and haven't looked back. My heels no longer hurt and I really like the slippers so I order two more pair.

When I first got these I thought they were ugly and was going to return them but I was too lazy. The more I wear them, the more I fall in love. They are so unbelievably comfortable and now I love the simple, streamlined look. Highly recommend.
Best house slippers
I wore through many a slipper working from home during COVID until I found these. They are the best mix of a sock/slipper. My feet stay warm, don't get sweaty and have become one with my feet. I've had two pairs for almost a year with daily wear now and they are still in great shape. Love them.
I ordered a pair a few years ago, loved them so order another. Way too wide, I walk right out of them, would not get another pair!

Super comfy slippers
Love the feel of the footbed and the wool uppers which are comfortable without being hot and making my feet sweat.

The slippers are warm, comfortable and very "quiet" (I have downstairs neighbors). They are also well made, sturdy (but soft) and they will last a while. I have spent a lot of money buying the wrong thing....so finding these...exactly what I need...is wonderful. Great slippers, I love them. Thank you!!!
