Rated 3 out of 5 by Jetwoman100 Sole is thin and little support
I had been looking to replace my Bison doublesoled shearling lined slippers which apparently have been discontinued for women. The reviews on these Oceanside slippers were good but I found the soles too thin and very little foot support. Sending them back and trying Beans Wicked Good mocs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by c2700 Perfect slipper!
This review is for the flannel lined oceanside slipper. I bought a pair of these for myself about a year ago and I still love them. They are in great shape and I even got a pair for my mom. Perfect for people like me who hate all that fuzzy lining that tends to get matted. They keep feet warm without getting all sweaty! I'm usually an 81/2, so I order an 8 and the length was perfect. At first they were a little narrow, but now that they are worn in, the shoes fit perfectly. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a durable, comfortable slipper without all that fleece!

Stylish, sturdy and perfect for Texas weather. I wanted something I could wear in the house but not make my feet too hot. These are perfect! They do run a tad big so order a size down. So comfortable I am thinking of getting them in the other colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovethebirds Two reviews needed for Unlined and Fleece Lined
Two reviews are really needed so that above Length/Fit ratings would reflect each of the slipper styles. I had no option but to say True to fit for both of them.
Unlined: No need to size up, runs large but this allows room for hot feet to swell and breath, or if it is cooler, room for a light sock. I usually wear 7 1/2 but 7 was fine. One or two areas of the top seam rubs my toes but with hammer toes this is a typical problem. If you wear a light sock that isn't snug, you may find that the suede pad under the heel will tend to pull it down which can become very annoying.
Fleece Lined: I think they used the same sizing for the outer suede shell so when you line it with fleece it then becomes a lot tighter than the unlined. For me, I had to return size 7 for 8. When it is cooler, I am always wearing socks and even allowing for the fleece to flatten, there was no way that the 7 would fit.
Both slippers: Great styling and glad there is no bow on top to continually untie/retie. They are good for a dry trip to the mail box or a neighbor. On my wood/tile floors, they do product a squeal if you turn a certain way but that's OK because they definitely do not slip and are safe to race around the house.

Perfect fit, size 8. REAL comfy. Beautiful blue color, I will certainly order another pair in a different color! Please LL Bean, keep offering these slipper for years and years. It's so hard to find the perfect slipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nightgale Nice color and quality
I was delighted to unwrap these Oceanside slippers and see the pretty, soft color. The "coral" is more like a pink-peach, a pastel.
Intensification of color is normal on device screens, but in this case the real tone is a feminine, more muted, but not boring, color.
I had no size issue like some folks. I'm typically a size 8, and got these in an 8, and there is neither sloppiness nor pinching. Felt relaxed yet mildly snug from first try-on.
So many discuss the fine craftsmanship, I won't go on. The design is classic. The grip bottom meant for floors, tiles, or short trips to get the paper.
Only teeny improvement I would make is purely aesthetic. Why have the rubber bottoms extend up so far on the front and back? Looks goofy and half the height of those "bumpers" would more than serve the purpose. No one is going to trudge thru the snow it these slippers, so keep the cleaner lines. That's just a personal idea. Still 5 stars.

I love these slippers! They do run about 1/2 size too big but I read the reviews and ordered a 7. They are a bit roomy still but stay on and are super comfortable.
I got the Soft Sand colour and I often leave the house wearing them - perfect with jeans - and I'm not embarassed to be caught out in public in my slippers! (yes that has happened to me before!).
Considering ordering another pair and maybe a few as gifts!!

I have recommended these slippers to everyone I know, the colors are gorgeous and they are SO comfortable, it's hard not to exaggerate. The support and cushioning are great and they hold up even over time - some slippers get a little wide and loose after a while. You will never shuffle around in these! Better support than some shoes I own! I have ordered two pairs so far - they run a little large, in my opinion not quite a half size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CdnshopperHW These slippers are awesome!
These are by far the best slippers I've ever had - they are super comfortable and work well with bare feet or socks. The fit is wonderful - I am a 9 1/2 and ordered the 9 and they fit perfectly. They also look great with no annoying leather tie that comes undone constantly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Juli1959 Glad I ordered down a half size
I usually wear shoe size 6 1/2 to 7. I hesitated to order the 6, but am glad I did. The slippers fit like a glove without being too tight, and if anything will probably stretch a bit after being taken off multiple times.
I do wish that they had dispensed with the brown patch inside the slipper at the heel. The patch is not nearly as comfortable as the fleece, and takes away from the otherwise plushy feel of the lining. I took a star off for that. Other than that minor complaint, they are a 5-star slipper.
