    The first and third ones look the nicest, but the second one looks like it'd be the most comfortable.


    I think I'd be embarassed to wear the last two. Number four looks like it needs to be worn outdoors with underwear, a bathrobe and a beer belly.

    The first one looks like it'd be the easiest to slip into and trudge around my condo.


    I'm leaning towards #1 & #3.

    Three would be better for walking down my hallway to the garbage chute, cause it's got the rubber padded sole.


    So which pair of slippers should I order?


    Vote now.

    Marco, you had to know something like this was coming when you started this thread, but let me be the first. My vote is for this pair:

    You could fit a whole person into those! [​IMG]

    I have a pair similiar to one and I thought I would hate them being without the heel part but I actually wear them the most.

    Well, personaly I think 1 and 2 look like woman slippers. I actually live right near LLBean and I opted for option 5. Very comfortable with a bit of masculinity LOL [​IMG]. I also like option 4. If you want to save some bucks check out a store in Maine called Dexter Shoes. You will be able to order on-line I am sure. The quality is very similar to Beans (even better with some lines) and they will be a bit cheaper. I have a pair of Bean moccassins and a Dexter pair ......and the Dexter pair has held up better. Good luck.

    I agree that #2 look a little bit too much like those Ugg boots or whatever that ridiculously hideous fashion trend of Eskimo boots is called that women are wearing nowadays.

    I think I've got it narrowed down to #1 and #3.

    It's between those choices.

    The third pair looks like a more confortable deluxe version of #5 which looks weird and flat and squishy to me.


    The pictures are no good on their own, you've got to imagine me hungover in a pair of plaid boxers with a scruffy 2-day old beard and a cup of espresso.

    I think #3 matches that best... but #1 also looks pretty good too!

    I'm trying to decide which would be most comfortable to slip on and kick back on my livingroom couch... option #1 or #3.

    ?

    This decision is too difficult.


    #1 looks much better in this picture:

    It's a damm pair of slippers.. Just pick one!

    There, I said it (For the hundreds of AHL readers who were yearning to type that). [​IMG]

    FWIW, I choose the one without the heel. It's so much easier just to slip it on and go, without having to fidget around with the heel.

    I say number 3. They have style, look classy and look although your footies would be in heaven within all that fur! [​IMG]

    You mean you're not gonna go with these? [​IMG]

    Since you've narrowed it down, it seems practical to go for #3 for those trips to the garbage chute. #1 is a little tricky anyhow - I like slides with no heels but those look too soft-soled to me.

    Okay I did it...



    I went with #3!


    This better have been the right choice or I'll seek vengence on all of you.


    Seriously, I hope these slippers are good.


    I bought a bathrobe with a monogram script on the chest too so I can strut around my condo like Preston Waters, scoffing at all my negihobors.

    Now I just need a pipe that blows bubbles.

    Ack, too late for my opinion, but I have something similar to #3 and my biggest complaint is, the leather laces are extremely difficult to keep tied. You can't tie them too tightly, so they keep coming undone.

    Other than that, I love them.

    Nice choice. I know that I'm too late with my recommendations, but I've heard nice things about these slippers; however, they look too uncomfortable for use as an everyday, lounging-around type of slipper:
