Rated 3 out of 5 by Redsrover Bring Back the Made in Maine USA Blucher
I do like my modern LLBean Blucher in spite of the El Salvador manufacture, strange new sole, and spongy insole insert. I like the fit, the color, the styling, the durability!
But, please, consider bringing back the vintage camp sole and American-made thick leather. The LLB Signature blucher is close, but the color of the leather is too dark. That camp sole on the standard Blucher would be a start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPinCT A "barefoot" shoe you can wear to the office.
No break-in. Goes anywhere. They seem to stretch more than they used to - actually got my last pair at the outlet and they were labeled narrow - but they fit to my foot within days. Classic and they take a beating. There's a reason they still make them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by letort Best Mocs - Hands Down
I received a pair of these 5 years ago for father's day from my kids who were traveling through Maine and stopped in Freeport. At first, I wasn't sure I'd like them because I was used to wearing Sperry's.
Well, after 5 years of wear and tear, I finally broke down and bought another pair.
Please don't stop making these, and for heaven's sake, don't change them!
A great value that have outlasted my Sperry's by 2 years!
I love 'em!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaverickBAS Look Good, But No Traction
I bought these shoes about six weeks ago. I'm pleased with the way they look,good shoes to wear to work in that regard.
Today while walking down the hall I almost fell when I stepped on wet spot. I looked at the bottom of my shoes and they are almost perfectly smooth on the bottom. Whatever rough areas there were on the soles are almost completely worn smooth.
Disappointed, these shoes should not be so slippery after only six weeks of wear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeShopper Not nearly as good as I remember
I used to love these shoes, but it has been a few years since I had a pair, and they are not the same:
1. they squeak. a lot. I fixed this by rubbing them with mink oil, but I should not have had to do that myself
2. The laces pull, So I have big white tufts of the inner lace showing, and I need to buy new laces
3. The leather scuffs. so after a couple weeks, the shoes show a lot of wear.
I am sending them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanBuckeye Possibly the best casual shoe ever.
I am just about to order my 9th or 10th pair of LL Bean Blucher
Mocs (I have lost count). They last about 2 years for me (because I wear them so much!) and are absolutely the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I wear them in all seasons except winter (when I where my Bean Boot Gumshoes instead, of course). In the summer, I wear them like sandals, sans socks, and slip them right on and off without untying them. They hold up extremely well, especially with an occasional application of saddle soap and mink oil. The soles are scuff proof on white boat decks too, so they double as a great deck shoe. If only Bean resoled Bluchers like they do their boots and they would the qualify as THE best show ever, hands down. Alas, all is not lost, as there are always old pairs of Blucher Mocs laying around in strategic locations for gardening, car washing, painting, rainy days, etc. So if you have yet to be convinced, remember the Bean 100% guarantee and try a pair of Blucher Mocs out for yourself. You won't be sorry, I am sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lvis Favorite Shoe Ever
I have been wearing these for more than 30 years from winters in Boston to summers in the California Central Valley. I am buying my third pair. The two previous pairs lasted me this long which is a testament to their durability.
They are the most comfortable, most versatile and easiest access shoes I have ever owned.
