FAQs About Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good Slippers
Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers come in whole sizes only and are generally true to size. However, they do have a looser fit, by which you can wear them with or without socks. L.L. Bean recommends that half sizes size up.
In my experience, no. If you are wearing the correct size, they will feel a bit loose from the start (not snug), and I believe this helps them maintain their original shape.
Yes, as they have a rubber sole. However, they do not offer foot support, so I only recommend wearing them outside at home, not for going out.
Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers are imported from Australia.
Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers are made with superior sheepskin. Genuine lamb fur is dyed and treated. The slippers' naturally warm premium shearling lining draws moisture away from feet.

I have "brown" but would describe them to appear very neutral, like a medium beige.

My Personal Review of Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good Slippers
When Fall 2020 hit and I was still working from home (since March 2020, due to the Coronavirus pandemic), I knew it was time to up my slippers game. I am ALWAYS cold, and my knock offs just weren't going to get me through a long Winter at home.
My requirements were basically: Long lasting. Up to $100-$125. Warm. With backs versus without backs. Rubber bottom for running outside with the garbage, etc.
I did some research of my own and then also asked around some Facebook groups and settled on the Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers.
A few things stood out to me: Trusted brand. Reviews that they last several years if not over a decade (my husband's are about 6 years old too). Good return policy. Fur interior for warmth. Lower price than most competitors. Classic style.
Upon receiving my Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers, I found them to be true to size, but a bit of a looser fit versus a snug fit. I wondered if I should have sized down, but after now wearing them for a few months, I love that this looser fit allows me to wear them with or without socks.
For the record, I generally wear a size 7 (sometimes 7.5 and sometimes 6.5), and I purchased the size 7.
I got the color "brown," which is more like a classic neutral medium brown.
They also didn't have as much support as my old Uggs did from a few years back (which I really missed). But, after wearing them for a few months now, I like this feature better as well. My Uggs were more like a shoe, and my Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers are more like a slipper with a rubber bottom. For working from home and lounging on the weekends, I prefer this more cozy fit.
They keep my feet warm all day (I am wearing them as I type this!), and I have never sweat in them to date.
The laces have never untied on me, but they can be double knotted regardless.
I did once get a small stain on the suede (I think it was maple syrup), and upon conducting some Google research, I rubbed some rubbing alcohol over the area and the stain came right out (Phew!).
To date, after a few months of daily wear, I don't have any negative comments about my Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers (really, not just saying it!) I added them to my lists of:
I highly recommend them if your needs and wants are similar to mine!
I hope my review of Women's L.L. Bean Wicked Good slippers was helpful in your quest for warm and cozy feet!
