Rated 5 out of 5 by pcsqueen Great Slippers, But They Run A Bit Small
I'm writing this review in July 2015. I purchased the slippers in October 2014, but decided to subject them to a few months of wear before I made any comments.
I was a little hesitant to purchase slippers that are non-washable. I don't wear shoes in the house, so, on a daily basis, my (sole pair of) slippers are subjected to all kinds of abuse, from spills while cooking to splashes while cleaning. Although I usually wear socks with them, I was also concerned about the slippers getting stinky without frequent trips to the washing machine.
Note: To minimize the possibility of stains, I purchased them in black.
The scuffs have well exceeded my expectations for comfort, warmth, and durability. Of course, they're black so hide dirt, but the ecru embroidery around the opening looks perfect. The soles are in great shape, showing minimal wear despite the occasional trip outside on a gravel/concrete driveway. Best, they're quite warm. That's important because, in winter, our house is cold -- mid-50's when it gets particularly frigid outside. We have tile floors which, in February, can start to feel like blocks of ice. Combined with a pair of fleece socks, wearing the scuffs keep my feet quite comfortable, even though they don't completely cover my heel. Likewise, even spending hours standing on the tile floors in the scuffs, my feet don't hurt - something less well-made slippers can't claim.
So far, after daily wear from October thru May, and occasional wear in June and July (too warm), the scuffs emit no odor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll stay that way, but if they do get smelly I will consider hand washing them in mild detergent and cold water. Better to shrink than stink!
My only criticism concerns their sizing; they seem to run small. I'm a US women's size 10, but had to send my original pair back and re-order a size 11. Of course, as previously mentioned, I typically wear them with socks; I don't know if the scuffs were intended to be worn that way or alone.
Hopefully, Bean will keep these in their lineup. They're a great product!

Will return these slippers. After wearing them in the house for several hours it was clear that the foam padding was not of good quality-could feel the rubber sole through the padding...if like this when new, I felt that the material would not last. How I wish LLBean would bring back the durable, comfortable, iconic "Java Slide" slippers....wore those for many years; was the best slippers ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yoopershopper So Far So Good
When I first received the scuffs it felt like I was wearing gun boats, but I had always wanted a pair that slipped on like these do. I have narrow feet and was a little worried if they would fit. Because LL Bean has such a good return policy, I decided to wear them a while and hope for the best. Well after a few hours they seemed to start to mold to the shape of my foot and they became easier to walk in. Now, I have had them for a few days and I love these scuffs!!! They are cozy and warm and easy to slip into. While the opening is slightly larger than my narrow foot, they don't fall off, but rather seem to cling comfortably to my feet. So, I am very pleased with my purchase. I ordered the gray color and like the way they look.

Warm, comfortable slippers with arch support! (Arch support should really be in the item description -- I found out about it in a review.) I'm looking forward to wearing these all. the. time.

I wear these daily. I wear them outside. I wear them on dog walks. I wear them in the yard. I drive in them. I've worn them on rainy days. I wear them nearly ALL day long. When I can't wear them, I miss them. They're the last thing off before I leave and the first thing ON when I get back. I leave them on the porch and they're on before I open the door! I have washed them SEVERAL times and tossed in dryer and they are fresh like new. I LOVE them! I'm here to buy more. They're AMAZING! I cannot imagine more comfortable footwear - either indoor or outdoor styles. BEST SLIPPERS EVER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raquela love these!!!
my husband bought these for me for my CHRISTmas/birthday present. i love them soooo much!! they are so warm and keep my toes toasty during the winter and they are extremely comfortable. i have sensitive heels so the moment i break into house slippers i have to throw them away because my heels start hurting. but these ones are so comfy and sturdy. I think these are gonna last me a really long time.

I love these slippers that I wear them out. Only issue I had is that after one year of 3 season almost daily wear, the sole of one of the slippers unglued. L.L. Bean quickly replaced them with a new pair that I am once again wearing almost daily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BritcanShopper comfortable, durable and great house shoes
these slippers are nice and warm and make great house shoes except for one thing. They are too warm and make your feet sweat because there is no ventilation. They need to have open toes at least and /orside vents.

Unfortunately, this is first time I have not been satisfied with an LL Bean product in the past 30 years. These slippers were given to me as a birthday gift in November a couple of years ago, which I wore daily as house slippers, and they both "blew out" in the front and did not last even a year. Although I enjoyed them while they lasted, I was very disappointed at their brief life! I'm hoping for an improved product design!

by igeekmom Great fit and comfy, but fabric pills
I have had these slippers for about 3 months. They were a gift. I wear them a lot and they are comfortable, however, for $50, I'm very disappointed at the pilling that occurs. The fabric/fleece gets fuzzy little balls all over them and they need to picked off in order for them to look decent. Wouldn't buy again or recommend.
