The absolute best pair of slippers I have ever worn. A lot of reviewers described the inside of these slippers as "fleece" and, given my experience with "fleece" sweatshirts, I was half-expecting the inside fur to be faux. Rest assured, the inside fleece is 100 percent sheep's wool -- and oh my word is it comfortable. These are the hard-soled version, so it takes a moment to get used to. But you can really feel the quality and the warmth. I have some sort of circulatory disorder where my feet are always cold, except when I wear these babies. An Old Friend, indeed. Note: order half a size bigger than you wear in an shoe. If not, it may still fit you -- but not how you'll want it to.

Took a while for the them to stop shedding. Big problem is that they keep your feet warm and heats up the rubber soles inside. My wife makes me toss them out of the room due to the smell of burning rubber.

These are so comfy I have not taken them off since I have owned them. I wear them everywhere. Size was just right. I bought my husband a pair of Emus and these are by far more comfortable. My husband now wants a pair. They are better made than the Emu's also especially the inside, where my husband's have already worn down.

I had made several purchases elsewhere to try and find the right slippers for my husband for Christmas. Zappos came through with these awesome, perfect slippers. When I say he lives in them, he literally does! They are his go to shoes for comfort and warmth. He wears them inside and outside! They are wonderfully constructed. I expect he will get many good years of use and comfort from these slippers. I would not hesitate to buy a second pair or order from Zappos. Their service cannot be beat!

Zappo's sent a smaller size virtually overnight after my initial order was too large and the arrangements for return of that size worked flawlessly. Great on-line store to deal with.

My order arrived in great shape. The packaging protected the slippers well.The fit was true to size, but keep in mind that these are leather and will stretch a bit. Love the slippers!

You will not find a warmer, more comfortable slipper than this one! The durable sole is perfect to wear around the house, and even an occasional short trip outside to get the morning paper!

Absolutely great shoe! Thick liner, so it is a snug fit... you may want to go a size wider than normal.....but a toasty warm, well constructed shoe. Also, kudos to Zappos service! My original shoe I ordered was a 14E... and they accidentally shipped a M width. I called them, and a real human answered right away, and overnighted me a pair in the wider width, without charging my credit card. They also emailed me a prepaid shipping label to send the old shoes back....so all I had to do is find a UPS drop off point, which happened to be across the street! Great customer service, Zappos! you deserve the credit on that... in today's day and age that is a true rarity!

My husband loves them. They are similar to a pair of Uggs he got 5 years ago. Now the Uggs version is twice the price. The Old Friend Bootee is just as comfy and cozy.

The shoe is comfortable and warm. The only complaint is in the wide shoe size the heel is also wide which makes it slip while walking. Most people with wide feet have normal heels.

It is difficult to find items that fit and that you like when your feet are size 14 but my husband loves these! I originally got him the soft sole but the largest size was 14-15...or so they said. They were too small for him so I got the 15 in this style and they fit fine. Now his feet and ankles are toasty warm!

I got these for my husband for Christmas. I liked the quality, and I have borrowed them a few times. The inside of the slipper is very soft and cushy. The soles are great. They are huge on me, but they do not flop off my feet due to the style where it covers most of the foot. I think the only thing is that he cannot run to the grocery store in them, but that was my fault for picking the wrong style! They seem to fit him great, and they are warm.

My husband loves these. They were a little tight when first purchased but after less than a week they fit perfect. Nice and warm. He really likes that you can turn the collar up on the slippers to keep your ankles warmer if you want.

Very warm and somewhat comfortable except that they are still a little too narrow. I hope that by the time I order another pair, they make them in size 13-6E wide.

Ordered Old Friend Bootees last year; my husband loves them, so I ordered the same ones this year also. It put a big smile on my husband's face, and we all know we have to keep our husbands happy. Thank you so much.

These slippers were a gift for my son. The extra wide width is difficult to find and they fit him well and were and he was very pleased. He especially liked the roll-up cuff in case he had to go outside.

As with all footwear offering no adequate arch support, I would strongly recommend a professionally made, or better yet, an arch support insert from online vendors. Beyond that, these Old Friend Bootee slippers are a superb product. You might want to order one size larger to accommodate your inserts.

Brands I'd also recommend: For wide shoe needs (E thru 5E), try hitchcockshoes.com

These old friend booties are just great. After getting mine, I had to order a pair for my wife. It was so easy to order from Zappos.com. The price was great and they arrived much quicker than I expected. I will definately order from them again. You will not be disappointed in this product or the service.

This was a great purchase! Hubby loves them! He really wanted Ugg slippers like these, but Ugg does not make slippers like these. If you have a wide foot these are the slippers for you! Just order a size larger than your regular shoe size. They keep his ankles nice and toasty warm! Thanks Zappos for carrying these!

These slippers are wonderful - cozy, warm and comfortable. The upper is sewn to the sole, which goes far enough up the upper so your slippers don't get wet or dirty when going outside.
