Rated 5 out of 5 by noco Great slipper
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.

I've owned mine for upwards of 18 years, they recently started to develop holes in the sole but my gait is screwed up and I wear shoes out in six months. I wear these indoors and out, though I'm careful to keep them as dry as possible. I have started patching the holes with duct tape and that keeps them from getting worse, but I definitely think it's time for a new pair. I hope they wear as well as the old ones!

Rated 4 out of 5 by socklessshoeguy My favorite house shoe
I've been wearing this style slipper from LL Bean as my house shoe for close to 30 years. I've lost track how many pairs I've gone through but I may be getting close to double digits now. They have made "improvements" through the years like the double sole and leather lining but I don't think they wear as long as they used to. I am on my second or third pair of the double-sole, leather lining and just ordered another pair as the previous is already developing a hole at a heel. They must be using cheaper or thinner leather on the soles these days because I'm wearing holes in them much faster than the old models. In the old models I've worn holes in the sides near the little toe before the sole would get a hole. The leather lining is nice but I could do without it if they'd go back to a sturdier or thicker sole leather. However, I'll keep ordering this shoe as long as they keep making it in whatever form. Regarding size they say to order up if you are a half size but I don't think that is really necessary unless you plan to wear thick socks like in winter time. I normally wear a 10 1/2 D dress shoe. The size 10 slipper fits fine for me and I could probably even wear thick socks with it. The size 11 slipper is definitely big for me. I've worn both sizes through the years. My two most recent previous pairs were 11 and my newest pair is size 10. I prefer the 10 but either size works for me. As for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 that is mainly because I don't like to give a perfect score to anything but the quick wear rate that I've experienced the past few years probably justifies the 4 if not a 3 rating.

This slipper is great for winter. Order a little larger due to the thick lining. This is not a shoe, don't wear them outside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kilothree33 Disappointed
I requested these moccasins as a gift expecting them to be durable as well as comfortable. In the photos and even on initial examination the soles appeared to be thick, rugged leather similar to saddle or boot leather that would provide many years of long usable life. However in less than one year of only indoor use on carpeted and wood floors the moccasins developed holes in the soles. The outer leather of the sole turned out to be thin with a plastic inner sole creating the false impression of thickness & stiffness. The disappointment in these moccasins has been significant, especially considering the fact that I have had inexpensive/cheap Minnetonka brand moccasins that lasted for years.
As to comfort, the moccasins are comfortable. And as noted by other reviewers they do tend to run a bit oversized...probably a half size larger than listed. So if you regularly wear a size 9.5 shoe then order a size moccasin order a size 9.0.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pattycakeh Look great, wear poorly in the sole!
Bought these beautiful slippers for my husband's birthday a couple years ago. They, to this day, still look great on the surface, but after only 6 months of wearing them only in the house they had a hole worn through the first layer of the sole. Needless to say, many more holes have developed in the interim.
As much as I love their look, I would not recommend them to anyone unless they have a home with carpeting throughout and no hardwood flooring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiscriminativeBuyer Long Term Review
These slippers are beautifully crafted and of high quality throughout. I purchased them 6 or 7 years ago with the idea that being double soled, they would last a lifetime. I think the outers would have, but the lining does tend to break down over time, developing thin spots and eventually wearing through to the outer layer. I ordered a size 12 and they were always a little bit tight feeling due to the heavy thickness of the lining. I recently ordered the leather lined version of this slipper. They fit more loosely and are better fitted to my foot. I think I will be much happier with the non-lined version.

Took these slippers out of the box this morning and they are great. After reading reviews on sizing ordered the size smaller since I wear a half size. Glad I did, they fit a little snug, but can tell they will stretch in nicely. A little difficult to put on at first but discovered you must untie and pull back on rawhide strip around slipper, this loosens the entire foot area, and can retie to comfortable fit. Sole a bit slippery at first on carpet, so be careful on carpeted steps, but great on tile surfaces. Just what I was looking for since I have some serious back issues that causes me to trip on carpet with nylon /rubber soled slippers. These were just what I was looking for. Highly recommend them.

Decided to get a gift for myself after mulling over these slippers for a long while. The leather is top quality and really molds to your foot after some breaking in.
Leather soles are comfortable but slippery on a wet kitchen floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HWS1 I'm buying another pair.
I'm on the site today to purchase another pair.I tend to do this when I really like a product, as at times,the manuf. discontinues a product I really like.I found this slipper to be extremely comfortable and very attractive. The feature most pleasing to me is the cushion afforded, because of the sole design.In short I really like them.
