Rated 1 out of 5 by ItIsWhatItIs Great Slipper - Horrible Quality, Keep Coming Back
I too have had 2 pair of these slippers, I simply love them. After the 2nd pair fell apart at the heel, I switched to something else LLBean provides, they are horrid. The first thing to come off when I get home is shoes and into slippers, I wear them everyday even in the summer and I hate shoes. So why can't they figure out how to make the backs of these with better stitching so they don't fall apart? I keep sending them back and get them replaced. Now, I'm going back for a 3rd pair, I hate hot feet and like the ease of slip ons. So until they figure that part out, I guess LLBean will continue to receive defective slippers every 6 months. Great Slipper though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KGH1 updated review: Love, but question the quality
I reviewed these slippers about a year ago, and wanted to do an update. LL Bean doesn't seem to allow users to edit reviews, so i'm doing a new one. my original review is at the end of this post.
I unequivocally love these slippers and wear them most of the time i'm home September-May, and even sometimes in the summer. I do not think i overuse them in anyway nor am i abusive. I'm careful to tuck the heel over my heel so i don't walk on it, i don't let them get wet, i keep them away from my pets, etc. However, in about four years of wearing these slippers I'm in the process of getting my fifth pair because they just keep falling apart within the first six months of use. On the first pair, the stitching came out at the sole; the second pair was two left feet; and for the third and fourth pairs the stitching holding the upper trim to the body of the slipper has come undone, leaving me with the trim flopping around uncomfortably under my heel. I'm returning #4 and ordering #5.
I am terribly disappointed that these slippers, which are not cheap, don't last long. BUT, LL Bean takes them back every time no questions asked, so i keep coming back for more. They really are comfortable.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I love, love, love these slippers. I am a fan of the "scuff" style, which i find is either loved or loathed generally. They keep my feet nice and warm without overheating and are very snug. I also found them to be sufficiently cushy to stand in. My back tends to get sore very quickly while i'm working in the kitchen, and these offered enough padding to alleviate this. It's also nice that I can wear these around the house, and don't have to worry about changing into shoes when i need to dash outside to the garden or mailbox because they have a nice rubber sole.
Yes, the shearling inside does flatten down, but i never found that this affects comfort or warmth.
I generally wear a 6.5 wide but LL Bean shoes generally run large for me so i got these in 6 medium, and the fit is perfect.
My only complaint, and this is a big one, is that after about three months the stitching that connects the sole to the suede began to unravel. No sweat, i just returned them and got a new pair. But this new pair (i'm not kidding here) is two left feet. More specifically, the "right" slipper has a right sole with a left upper. You'd be surprised by just how uncomfortable this is. I have concluded the manufacturing process for these particular slippers has a few kinks and you'd be best to try these out in store so you can make sure you're getting a quality pair. Hopefully third time's a charm for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mtgirl10 Nice but too low in the back
They are plush. I have not had them long enough to know how they will hold up. What I don't like is that they keep sliding off my heel because the back is so low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cozybetty an excellent quality scuff slipper
This product is great but I preferred the whole slipper rather than the scuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VJay Look manly
I was very disappointed with the style.... I thought they looked very manly & sent them back. I'm sure they are comfortable..look warm
But if you are looking for a feminine style....these aren't for you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KnitToLive Poor quality
In less than 4 months the upper suede tore by the pinkie toe. The material on the sole was also already thin at the heel and ball of my foot. My husband has had a pair of these slippers for a few years and his are fine.
I am confindent that L.L.Bean will make it right. I have always been pleased with their customer service.

My spouse had a pair,of the full slippers. She liked them but our dog chewed them up. She said she would prefer a slid in and these filled the bill nicely. Fit is good. Had to go 1/2 size up from her usual she size.

Warm, comfy, love them. Took a day for them to conform to my feet which was well worth it.

Love love love my house shoes. They are so warm and feel so good on my feet. They have a really good bed for the foot. Feels so good to finally have a good pair of house shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RMCL Best slippers I've ever owned!
This is my second pair of Wicked Good Scuffs. The first pair lasted many years and I finally retired them. They are warm and comfortable with good support. I usually wear an 81/2 but ordered a 9 because they have a lot of fleece lining.
