Rated 2 out of 5 by Southerncali These are not the same
These are advertised as "back by popular demand" however these are not the same as the older style. In the past these shearling flip flops had shearling lining on the inside of the straps. They were the perfect slipper flip flop. I ordered these hoping that they would be the same as the older style but was very disappointed. The slipper is narrow and uncomfortable. I won't order another pair like this. When I discussed with customer service they shared that many people miss the old style with the shearling wrapped around the straps and lining the footbed. Why won't LLBean bring back the original?

Rated 3 out of 5 by jhk515 Good while new
I've had a couple of pairs of these, and want to really love them, but the problem is that the shearling wears off at all the pressure points, and fairly quickly. This leaves you with just bare leather under the balls of the feet, heels and toes, with shearling surrounding your feet. At these prices, I'd prefer they just compacted under the feet.

I have bought 3 pairs of these and when a couple of the colors went on sale I bought another pair in the same size, 7, as the regular priced ones I bought. I found the sale pair to be a bit more narrow and found that the outside of my foot hung off the side and rested right on the edge making it uncomfortable. I am sending these back and getting one size up in an 8.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLevy Shearling wears thin at toes
I recommend these but with caution on shearling quality. I LOVE these flip flops and have bought several pair purely because they are so comfy and I like the fact that I'm walking on a natural fiber rather than a synthetic replication. My only complaint is that the the fleece wears thin and becomes nonexistent at the big toe with only a few weeks wear. I did send them back and got a replacement and it wore away even quicker. They are still comfy but the quality needs improving in the thickness and attachment of the shearling where it tends to wear thin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by doodlelander i like them, but not as good as in years past
I really do love the slippers, however they are narrow and not a "cushy" as a pair I had from a handful of years ago. The length is true to size but I personally find them narrow and could use to have a bit more cushioning. The sole is sturdy and overall I am pleased with the purchase but just hope they hold out as well as my old pair did.

I got these to wear for house shoes/slippers to cushion my feet as I have tile flooring. They do the job, and I wear them whenever I am in the house. The toe stem is a little stiff at first, but it is softening as I wear them. I think that they could be a tad wider, but that could just be my pony feet. I like the suggestion about using fleece on the underside of the thong. Good idea! Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leathers Disappointing...Not Wicked Good!
The first pair was returned becuase the shearling had started to wear away after only a few months. We informed LL Bean about this and was told to buy a new pair and return the faulty ones, and once the faulty ones are received they would issue a refund. Unfortunatley the new replacement pair have started to wear after only a few weeks...and before LL Bean has actually given us the refund.The wear beat the refund!! These flip flops are so comfy but they do not last. In the case of the second pair they did not last a full month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by badfoot remember the first ones
These are just a bit narrow - compared to the earlier models - which we prayed they would bring back...and the toe separater is a bit wider but since they haven't offered anything in a while - I'm happy to even see these... Super comfy - I wear mine inside/outside
just makes stepping out in the world a little softer...
So please bring back other colors, wider bed and larger sizes (12)
