Rated 5 out of 5 by araybe Comfortable and Durable Soft Sole Moccasins
After reading a couple negative reviews about the durability of these L.L. Bean unlined double-sole leather moccasins, I just had to add my "two cents." These moccasins are absolutely great! I've had mine for several years and have found them not only to be quite comfortable, but extremely durable, too. I wear mine more as casual shoes than as house slippers -- I wore them to work today, in fact -- and they handle both outdoor and indoor duty beautifully. I think the key to making them last is avoiding getting them wet and avoiding rough walking surfaces, such as gravel paths/driveways. I've worn soft sole moccasins as my preferred footwear since about age 5, and these L.L. Bean mocs are among the most durable I've ever had. So, if you take good care of these mocs, they'll take good care of you, too, for a very long time to come. They're well worth the asking price, no doubt about it!

Bought a pair of these moc's about 10-11 months ago. Today, I must toss them in the trash. I found them to be very comfortable and worn them often, however, both the inner and outer soles have worn through, AND... the stitching on the toes have torn through the leather leaving my bare toes without a home - hmmmm. They were worn mostly in the house on carpet and tile with an occasional trip to the patio. They have never left my property and I find $90 bucks too much to spend for 10 months service from a quality (?) product purchased from my beloved 'Bean'. I'm going to try the ones made from Bison hide, maybe they will last longer than these made from leather.

The inner sole is separating and bunching up. I have returned them and will not reorder. These are replacements and I did not have any issue previously.

I've been wearing the leather lined version of the double sole slippers for about twenty years now. In that time I've gone through about six pair, but I wear them constantly when I'm home and I am very hard on any shoe. Like true moccasins they tailor themselves to your feet in no time at all and fit like a glove. They are better than any other slipper I've had.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Happyjak65 Shearling-Lined not a good idea
Although I'm on my second pair of these you might want to pass on the Shearling-Lined version. This is the second year I've worn this pair and they wear great but in both pairs the lining started to wear out at about the one year mark. I probably have another year on the soles then I may look elsewhere for replacement.

These are very handsome and well crafted slippers but they don't let your feet breathe! I can only wear them for about five minutes before my feet start to get sweaty then cold.They need to rethink this one!

After trying a pair of very casual, crepe soled shoes as slippers for a year, I decided to go back to these double sole, leather slippers. Felt like a glove the minute I put them on. I do not like cloth or shearling lined. Mine are leather lined. Decided to try the full grain leather this time rather than the bison since other web articles claim durability is the same. These are more refined looking than bison. The materials feel to be excellent and the cushioning in the footbed is really comfortable. Appears to be well made. Feel great on carpet or hardwood. I normally wear size 10 or 10.5 shoes. Bought a size 10 here which puts my toes pretty close to the end but any bigger would probably be too sloppy a fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IDbeanshopper best. slippers. ever.
these are like stepping into a warm cloud. love the look. love the experience, they're even easing plantar fasciitis pain. can't say enough good things.
i was hesitant about the cost, worth every penny, and this is from a penny pincher.

43 years ago my mother bought me a pair of moose hide, shearling lined slippers from LLBean. They are still with me but in less than perfect condition. She just bought me my 2nd pair of LLBean slippers. These double soled bison hide slippers are every bit as comfortable as my moose hides. I cannot attest to their longevity but the quality is visible and they fit like a glove. I'll have my son report on their life span as I am sure they will outlast me.

I've owned two pairs of these over the past 5-6 years. I wear them inside (mostly tile, some carpet and hardwoods) and I've worn them plenty outside as well (garage, driveway to mail box, car, etc., and as driving shoes on trips). I've had a great experience with them. A little formal until worn-in, but very comfortable. The price is inching up but the longevity I've enjoyed makes the cost quite reasonable when averaged out over the years. I'm sure some will not find what they were looking/hoping for in a house shoe but for me they have been comfortable, versatile and have served me well.
