I just could not find a way for these to be comfortable. I love the look but they feel odd on my feet.

Just got mine on super sale (around ~$35 per pair). They're comfortable and fit well, will be interesting to see if they stand the test of time.
Really comfortable, but the first pair broke down quite quickly (material abrasions), this series is already discontinued and the company, as part of the complaint, replaced the pair with a different model (summer), in the case of this model after more than a year of use, there are no problems with abrasions.
I was gifted these five or six years ago by my in laws. I love them. I want to replace the soles but they no longer carry the version I need. The wool portion is still great though.
Changing the soles was the right move. The current version I have is kind of clunky with the snaps at the ankle.
I've been using my Mahabis for over 2 years, and I love them. I'm only using them at home (indoors) during the half of the year when it's cold. I have quite the issue with foot odor, but my Mahabis does not smell bad at all. The wear after 2 years is minuscule. I have the Mahabis Classics, with gray shoe soles. The fit is great, they keep my feet warm when I need it. I'm surprised by how good they have held up. Even the print on the innersoles is intact. My new Nike shoes do not have an inkling of inner sole prints left after just 1 week of use. They are simple and elegant.
One thing that has started to happen, is that the wool is starting to get a bit frothy or nippy. I guess this is to be expected after some time. I also think I could use one of them cloth cleaners to clear some of that nippy wool. Another thing I did not consider when buying the Mahabis is that they are quite thick with the sole, I had expected them to be a lot slimmer, closer to the ground. And the shoe is also quite narrow, so if you have wide feet, they might not be the best indoor shoes for you.
