I purchased one in Dec 2018, after purchasing wonderful Muk Luks slippers last year 2017 as year end Holiday gifts and one for myself. This time, the material was sooooo cheap. Muk Luk really cut back on their quality. Which is a shame. The ones that I purchased in 2017 were also made in China (so it wasn't a matter where where it was made), but the ones I purchased a year earlier with exact same price were luxurious, plush and comfortable. Sad that Muk Luks cut back on producing quality product by using cheaper materials to make more profit. Returned the one I purchased in Dec 2018.
