Review: Bearpaw Shoes

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

It is nice to find a company that has high quality products at a reasonable price. They have such a wide variety of boots, it is hard to select which ones to get. We could tell immediately that this company believes in comfort, style, and safety. The non slip soles on the boots are so important in any weather.


These sassy wedge sandals are the perfect compliment to any outfit. The 4” wedge is incredibly comfortable to walk in and wear for long periods of time….and they do wonders for your legs! Cool metallic canvas upper straps cross at the ankle and instep and is slightly pleated, adding to the unique detailing.

The micro suede footbed absorbs moisture and prevents your footbed from sliding down. Even though the wedge height is 4”, the forefoot has a 2” platform, so you get the beautiful lines of a heel without sacrificing comfort.

I love them with a pair of shorts or a flirty skirt! They were great for travel- I could wear them all day and dress them up for dinner!


Fun and Flirty, these wedge sandals will definitely turn heads! The crossed ribbon straps and open toes add a pretty feminine accent to any outfit. The toe straps are sassy polka dot, adding an extra little flair.

But they are not just a pair of pretty shoes, they are incredibly comfortable as well. The wedge gives height without sacrificing stability. They are really easy to walk in and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

There is no reason we can’t be stylish AND comfortable!


The “in” look for summer shoes is the moccasin, boat shoe style. The Bailee is exactly that but with the Bearpaw flare- sheepskin! It’s like wearing your slippers to the store without anyone knowing, it’s your little secret! Spring mornings are still cool and I love slipping my feet into these for my morning walk, to yoga, or even slipping them on après run. This is a true 3 season shoe!

Larkin II

These are very comfortable Men’s casual pull on boots. The uppers are oily pressed suede with a warm sheepskin and wool blend lining. The sheepskin foot bed adds warmth all around the foot and cushions the foot as well. Our reviewer has unusually high arches and he commented on how easily they were to pull on with the large pulls in back and the twin elastic gores provided snug comfort when in place.

For wintry climes, the new lugged outsoles provide a secure walking surface on either snow or ice. There’s ample volume in the toe box for hiking/trekking socks but they also fit well with thinner socks in warmer weather.


We talk about taking care of our feet when hiking, running, walking…doing anything. What about when you are not doing much at all? The Hudson slippers from Bearpaw are like sticking your feet in a pile of soft wool wrapped in a tough leather exterior. The soles have the durability to wear out to the mailbox and to take the dog out. These were so comfortable that our tester forgot he was wearing slippers and ended up sporting them to dinner.

According to his wife, they looked good on him and no one noticed they were slippers. We recommend treating them with a waterproofing product. Especially if you end up wearing them everywhere like our tester is still doing.

Alta II

Bearpaw has scored one for the guys with their Alta II. Tumbled leather and a crazy horse shaft make this a handsome boot. They look as though they belong on the feet of Sam Elliot around a fire in the ski slopes of Aspen. They pull on easily so going out to get the mail or walk the dog is a cinch. Sheepskin and so-soft wool line the boot. Truth be told it is very nice wearing the Alta II without socks.

They are just too darn comfortable to care about putting on socks to take the dog out when the insides are so nice. Bearpaw put some big strong lugs on the sole for traction to keep you steady on your feet. We applied a waterproof leather treatment before wearing them so they are truly all-weather boots. It is really nice to be able to take a great looking boot, play a little and have them looking like new after a quick clean up. The Alta II is a truly all-around boot that is tough as it is comfortable.


A super stylish boot that have the furry, warm trademark of Bearpaw boots. Designed in full grain leather with vertical fur side detail these boots can definitely be dressed up or down. They are extremely warm, constructed with a merino wool lining and a sheepskin footbed, so you can look good even on the coldest days without sacrificing warmth and comfort. These are great boots for toodling around all day not knowing whether you will be walking around outside or going in and out of doors. Per usual with Bearpaw- it is like you never took your slippers off in the morning!


These boots have a chic style without compromising warmth. Styled almost like a biker boot it has a slightly harder edge to it than most fuzzy, warm boots. Something for everyone- Bearpaw things of everything! The exterior is made of oily pressed cow suede with double strap trim and metal buckles. As a Bearpaw signature, they have a 100% sheepskin lined shaft and footbed. Super comfortable, warm, and stylish- great winter travel boot!


Can't decide if you want a sued or knit boot? This boot has the best qualities of both! With the stylish cow suede frontal exterior and fully adjustable knit back, this boot fits all calf sizes! It is also extremely easy to get on if you have high arches as our tester does! They have a sheepskin and wool blend lining, and of course the sheepskin footbed.


Everyone needs a pair of boots that you can slip on in the winter to keep your feet feeling warm and cozy. Bear Paw boots are made of a suede exterior with a sheepskin/ wool lining to take the winter chill of and blanket warmth around your feet.

I love the fact that this particular boot has a larger opening at the top- makes them exceptionally easy to get on with my high arches after skiing. With the wider opening it is easier to tuck your jeans in as well to show off the fashionable exterior with toggle buttons.

Not only are they super stylish, but they have a deep treaded rubber outsole offering improved grip and stability.

Great for après-ski or kicking around town!

Pacific slipper

First thing I do when I rise out of bed during these chilly months is slip my feet into these sheepskin slippers. I almost hate to put on shoes for work, and you'd better believe as soon as I get home it is off with the shoes and on with the slippers!

They do have a rubber outsole so I find myself wearing them out to get the mail and even to the grocery store. With a nice suede exterior no one know better!

Dream, 10" hickory

These boots are the ones right by the door. These are easy to slip in, and great for every day to get the mail, or for longer distances. The lug sole rubber bottom is reassuring walking on slippery surfaces. The boot opening measures about 14" around which allows you to tuck in or have the pants on the outside. Although the lining is sheepskin/ wool lining, our reviewer who is allergic to wool had no problems with discomfort or itching. The suede upper has nice classic lines.

Altai, hickory

Style, comfort, safe, and ease in getting into, what more could we ask for? We love how easy it is to tuck our pants into the boots to show off their style without fuss. Our feed didn't get hot inside but stayed toasty warm outside.

These boots have the highest quality natural furs, genuine sheepskin, and natural lanolin in sheepskin shearling that wicks away moisture while allowing breathability. The twin layered design provides cool breathability in the summer and warmth in the winter The sheepskin footbed is so comfortable, and the rubber sole gives us security when walking on slippery surfaces.

Loki II slipper

Although our reviewer has many slippers, these became the ones she chose to put on every morning. The soft suede uppers with shearling collar are easy to maintain and offer the utmost comfort. The sheepskin lining regulates body temperature to keep your feet warm but not hot and theSheepskin footbed provides additional softness and reduces foot fatigue. The durable rubber outsole make this the perfect indoor/outdoor choice.

Lagoon Rain Boots - Eggplant

Many rain boots are great for the warmer weather, but these are great for any time of the year. They have a removable wool sock liner feels amazingly soft against your toes. The durable rubber outsole provides traction on slippery surfaces. How nice to have rain boots for all weather! These are the ones that stay by the front door.
