Rated 3 out of 5 by rpress99 slipping out of my slippers
I got these as a gift and found them to be big. I wear a size 9 (the size purchased) and these would still be a bit loose even w/ thick socks. I suspect an 8.5 woulda worked. They're also pretty slick on the bottom but that just probably needs some breaking in. Nice looking slippers, though. Unfortunately returned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DOOM609 quality control?
I wore these for about fifteen minutes, and the insole on the right shoe started separating from the shoe. We'll see how the replacement pair does, but for $99, I think they could use the right amount of glue on every slipper.

I treated myself to a pair of these after admiring them for a year. They were instantly comfortable and are oh so elegant to wear around the house. I can't imagine how someone could wear them out except if they actually thought they were moccasins. Best pair of slippers ever!

My wife bought these for me a year ago already worn through. In addition terrible pain always coming untied and have fallen because loose ties caused me to trip. Strongly recommend you buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 Just fantastic
This is the second pair of these slippers that I have purchased. I wore the last pair through. Size 14 is not easy to find and the quality of the slippers is top notch. I am only buying a new pair so that I am able to pass the old pair on to our 4 month old Minature Dacshund puppies as they seem to like them very much too. Jokes aside, great quality, great price superior product.

I love everything about these slippers. They fit well (I have wide feet) and stay on without becoming soft and overly stretched-out like some leather moccasins so often do. The soles stand up to the occasional walk to the mailbox. The insoles are good, don't stick to wet feet and pull out when you remove your foot. Next time I',m going to get some fleece lined for the colder months!

I purchased the leather doubled-soled bison slippers approximately six months ago. Other reviewers stated the laces come untied and the sizes run slightly large. Both true in my case; however I find them extremely comfortable and the break-in period was next to nil.
What is unacceptable is that in this period, one hole has worn in the heel and the other appears to about to have one. Since I'm retired, they are worn constantly. They are not worn outside and I do not think wearing these inside on carpeted / hard floors is an extreme condition.
I am not sending them back for replacement nor is there a store in Ohio to take them to. I will have a leather patch sewn to both heels. Sorry LL Beane, this product is unacceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by alaninmich too textured
the pair of moccasins i received fit wonderfully, but the amount of texture was like some part of an elephant, nothing like the website picture represents. they were very comfortable and my feet were happy in them, but every time i looked down, i thought, "i don't like the texture; i'd rather have smooth ones" that part is another story as the sizing does not appear to be consistent across the double soled moccasins (which leads me to question overall build quality as sizing consistency is a build quality concern).

Rated 5 out of 5 by RTHawk Finally, I am happy!!
Indulge me for a story. I have wanted a pair of these slippers for about fifteen years. I am not a shopper. I don't buy a lot of "stuff". When I am looking for a particular item, I research, I compare, I find the brand/style I want and will not be satisfied with anything else. Picky, I suppose. Discerning, I prefer.
When putting out my Christmas wish list fifteen years ago, I told my now ex-wife I wanted these L L Bean bison moccasins. She communicated something to my mother. What I received that Christmas was a pair of light tan moccasin style slippers with some type of nylon or plastic soles. I appreciated the gift but have clip-clopped thru the house for all those years wishing I had what I had wanted.
This past Christmas, my Mom and my sister together gave me an L L Bean gift certificate. When I was choosing how to spend it, the bison moccasins were first on the list. I love them!!
Now, a comment about size to help others. I have a narrow foot. If I have a choice on width, I would typically go with a B or C. I would also choose a 9 1/2. Because many of the reviewers spoke of these initially being a tight fit and because I knew I would usually wear them with wool socks, I upsized to a 10. They felt loose on my feet. I don't care for that. I don't like a shoe that move and slips on my foot. So, I exchanged them for a size 9. Perfect!! Now I can move quietly thru the house, even on the hardwood and tile floors. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoRaptors Bison Leather Lined Slipper
After four months, I'm very happy with the quality and comfort of this slipper. Well constructed and gives good food support. It was comfortable from day one and did not require any break-in period. Probably the best slipper I've ever worn. My only niggling complaint is that the thick leather laces tend to come undone frequently. Double knotting the laces seems to be working so far.
