This is a pair of slippers that I purchased for my wife. I had originally found a pair for myself at a shoe store in Lawrence Kansas on a weekend social trip. Brought them home and started wearing them in cold weather. Fantastic for warming cold feet and keeping them warm, even walking outside in freezing weather. And they are extremely comfortable with the thick sheepskin lining. She slipped mine on to see how they felt and said "wow...I want a pair of these". So I went on line and bought them for her. She loves them better than anything else she has ever worn around the house. I feel the same way. I have owned numerous fur lined and fake fur lined slippers over the years, but nothing compares to this brand and this model. They can truly take cold feet that have refused to warm up, otherwise, and take you to where you want to be with comfort. I am sure it is the thick sheepskin insulation that is returning the body's heat that does the trick. No regrets and simply impressed beyond words.

One very important feature is the foresight of this company to use a removable sheepskin sole liner inside so that you can remove it and wash it in woolite or other mild detergent to freshen it up. And allows you to fluff the knap back up after getting compressed from wearing. And the other feature I like is the ability to roll the top down for a shorter covering of the ankles or extend it up to allow you to tuck your sweats or jammies into them for a nice cozy warmth.

I have decided these "Old friend" slippers are not your friend. They run on the small side which is fine--but the inside sheepskin part is an insert and constantly gets folded up so you keep having to pull it out to get it in the shoe correctly. Also wear these slippers with socks or prepare for them to smell. Overall, I am not impressed.

finally my feet are warm at home.

when you first put these on you'll undoubtedly be disappointed.. the length runs short (i'm usually 7-8, and this bootee in an 8 is good, with socks its snug lengthwise), the length issue is obvious with each step-- the shape of the shoe propels your foot forward, the ankle hole is cut very wide and very tall (i have flat feet, so with every step my ankle slips out), the shoe is also very heavy for a slipper, and though the rubber skid-resistant tread is nice, the glue-construction is not durable-- one short jog would break these shoes.

BUT, all that said.. these are soft, warm, comfortable to sit around the house, durable to walk outside a little, and the fuzzy insole is replaceable (and for flat feet, you can add another insert to add arch support and help with the ankle slippage)

stronger glue and adjustable ankle sizing would make this a great slipper.

The Old Friend brand is a winner in my book. I've bought several pair for various faimly members (including myself) and could not be more pleased. They are very well made, long lasting and comfortable to wear. I would not hesitate to recommend these fine slippers to anyone who wishes to pamper their feet.

On the size chart I'm nearly a 12, and I'm nearly at the end of these, so they seem exactly the same as the size chart. I also tried what should have been the equivalent men's size by the charts - 11, but it was over a size too large. It also felt wider.
At first they were very tight, over a few days they have loosened up, but they're still somewhat tight. They seem quite heavy to me, and I prefer light shoes. I guess that's partly the rubber sole, the leather is also thick.
What really annoys me is that as I walk they are pulling my socks down so they end up bunched up inside the shoe. If that keeps up I will be a very unhappy camper. Of course I can't return them any more since I've worn them.

Beware, a return to Amazon because something doesn't fit required me to pay the shipping. Should have bought from zappos - they have them.

After having to return my Christmas gift of the Old Friend slipper in the scuff style due to the sizing being off, I was only able to get this pair of booties. (I would have preferred the scuff, but they were sold out.) I had to go up a full size--I wear an 8-8.5 in other shoes, but the corresponding size in Old Friend slippers is too small by about 2-3 inches! These new booties fit, but I hope they do not stretch and that the fluffy footbed doesn't flatten out so much over time that they end up being too large. Old Friend should adjust their sizing information to include measurements in inches/centimeters. I like the arch support and warmth these provide, as well as the hard soles that allow for quick trips outside (e.g. to get mail, empty the trash, etc.); I also like that the inner footbed liner is washable (albeit by hand) and that it can be replaced if necessary.

These are my second pair of Old Friend slippers. The first ones lasted two years with lots of wear outside as well as in. They are so comfy and warm. If you are a half size, you should order up rather than down.

I ordered a pair in the chocolate brown. I got the smaller size as recommended but they were way too small. So I returned them and ordered the next size up in this lighter color. These are waaaaaaaaaaay to big. I swear they are extra wide. The label says L7. Good shoe but only get this color if you have very wide feet. Now I'm having to return these too. very disappointing Amazon!

These slippers hurt my toe and the fleece was scratchy. I was SO disappointed. I sent them back and had to pay for returning them ($7+... the 'Smart Label' doesnt specifiy how much it will cost you ultimately... just gives you a ballpark estimate?!) Awful experience all around. I should have waited for Zappos to re-stock.

I just ordered my third pair of these slippers in three years. They are comfortable and true to size, cost a significant amount less than similar Ugg, EMU, and L.L. Bean slippers, and have several design elements (like soles that come up around the sides of the shoe) that I look for after decades of slipper-wearing. My only major problem with them is that they fall apart within 11-13 months (looking back over my Amazon order history, that's exactly when I wind up shopping for a new pair). Every year, I spend an inordinate amount of time looking for an alternative, and every year, I wind up buying this pair again because of the design and price ... but I kind of feel like a pair of slippers should last for more than a year. (My Bogs boots, which I wear for a roughly comparable amount of time during each year, have lasted for going on four years.) Hence the three stars.

EDIT: My new pair arrived yesterday. I'm keeping them (see above), but the design appears to have been altered so they are now longer and narrower. Also, the lining (as in, under the sheep fluff) was lumpy and uneven, but I think it will even out with wear; the slippers generally looked like they had been crushed BEFORE they were put in the shoe box (both shoe box and shipping box were not smooshed). I guess I'll be recommencing the comparison-shopping around June 2014 ... sigh ...
