Rated 5 out of 5 by ypsiladdie extremely comfortable
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.

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.
