Rated 5 out of 5 No other shoes or boots like these...
I've been wearing the Bean mocs and boots since I went to prep school in 1978 and they have never let me down. They have served me from snow drifts in New England to the New Orleans Fairgrounds for Jazz Fest to muck and mire in rural north Florida. LL Bean has stood by their products when things like decades old stitching started to come apart and it breathes new life into them.
I can't say I ever wore out a pair of these shoes as my second ex-wife made my 27 year old mocs and boots disappear during our divorce (along with a lot of my other stuff, but that's another story).
I have since ordered or been gifted new pairs and the quality and comfort are just the same. If I don't get remarried I may be able to hold onto the pairs I have now and even be buried in them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RSpears Great Quality, Takes Some Getting Used To
I got these as a Christmas present and they were the same size as my 8" Bean Boots which are a size 11 so I thought they would fit but they were HUGE when I tried them on. I had to end up buying a whole new pair in a size 10 which is 2 sizes smaller than my normal shoe size. When I first tried them on they didn't really feel how I expected. It took some getting used to but once you tighten the laces they feel better. The slippage in the back was expected but it bothers me more than I thought it would. Bottom line is that its the same EXCELLENT L.L. Bean quality I was expecting just felt weird and took some getting used to. It feels like Sperry's but with the bulkiness of boots. It is a hard thing to describe you just have to throw on a pair and try them out yourself!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrBoot Well made boot, but the fit won't be for everyone
After being told that the Gumshoe Boot wasn't even available on backorder, the customer service rep suggested the Rubber Moc as an alternative. I've wanted a pair of Bean Boots for slushy winter days for awhile so I figured I'd give them a shot. I normally wear a size 10 shoe, so my foot fit perfectly in a size 9 (medium) boot since I knew I'd only be wearing them with regular socks. I made sure all the laces were snug and went for a trek around my house to see how they feel. UNFORTUNATELY...my heel immediately started sliding out of the boot with every step I took. I understand this is supposed to be a slip-on shoe, but if I did anything faster than a steady walk, these would surely fly off my feet. Plus the back of my ankle would eventually get chewed up from being continuously rubbed by the boot. I strongly suggest getting the gumshoe if you want a shorter boot that fits securely on your foot (hopefully it comes back one of these days). LL Bean customer service/return policy was excellent as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RinCO Great Slip-On Boots!
I was a little nervous after reading all of the comments pertaining to the over-sizing of the boots. I wear a 9 to a 9 1/2 shoe depending on the brand in a D width. I also have a high arch. I decided to take a chance and go with a size 8 in D width, it fit PERFECTLY!

Great fit and durability. I wear these boots while doing gardening, doing dirty handy work around the house, and out in the snow and rain. They are holding up superbly & all dirt washes off. The shoe look fantastic even after all these years. I wish I got the one filled with the fury stuff. Order 1/2 size down for a good fit. I got wide feet and the wide fits nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by willplus2 Use the leather tie to tighen if boot is loose
The rule of order down for half sizes is correct-- but in my case the boot was still loose - I discovered that the leather tie can be tightened - and what a difference - all the looseness is gone - the boots feel like a regular shoe---- a helpful hints that should be added to the rule of 1/2 sizes

Though sturdily built, the actual size is easily one size greater than advertised. Whoever designed the lacing system must have been on dope, which makes them uncomfortable to wear.

I own a pair for 30 years and they haven't worn out. Wear thick sox and they're perfect

Rated 2 out of 5 by SFLA Rubber Moc Review
When ordering these shoes I read many reviews complaining about the sizing running too large. I wear a 12 M LLBean hiking boot as well as a 12 M running shoe. I ordered the 11 based on the websites recommendation of 1 size smaller. These were huge. I could fit two fingers behind my heal.
I ordered a 10M and it is still a little large. They are ok for walking in the yard, but you could not walk any distance in them. I returned the first pair. While the website says Free Shipping, I had to pay to return the first pair that were too large.
I will not buy shoes online from LL Bean again. The quality is there, but the sizing at least for this shoe is out of scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerrarrd Great product. Amazing customer service.
I decided to get my first ll bean mocs and pleased with what I got. I usually wear size 9.5-10 shoes so I got a size 9, as per insturctions of the website. When it came (fast delivery!), tried it on and my ankle was slipping out when I walk. I'm planning to use only light/medium wt socks so I called for a replacement, maybe 2 sizes smaller than my normal shoe size. (corteous operator!). In 2 days, I got my size 8 and it fits perfectly!
If you will be wearing light/medium wt socks, consider buying 2 sizes smaller than your normal shoe size. It worked for me.
