Rated 5 out of 5áby DRBReviews Gumshoe Review
I love these gumshoes. I bought them to wear to and from work so that I wouldn't get my dress shoes wet and salt stained when I had to slog through the snow to clean off my car. However I find that I wear them a lot more than I thought I would in the inclement weather in Michigan. They are easy to get on and off. The fit is a bit on the large size. I wear a 9.5 shoe and find that size 9 gumshoes are just fine. The width is loose enough to wear two pair of socks when I need to but still snug enough with one pair of socks. I would recommend these shoes to anyone. I wish I had bought some years ago.

This pair of boots is my first L.L. Bean product. They will not be my last. Just wore them to clean 5" of snow off my driveway. Great grip, no slip, superb quality and they fit great. Bought one size down and they worked fantastic. I'll be back....

Great shoe. I like the traction of the shoe and I feel sure footed when walking.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FromNavytothefarm Close to indestructible
I've had a pair for well over 10 years (think it's been almost 20 now) and the original laces finally needed replacing. Other than that, these boots have taken an absolute beating over the years. I'm not easy on footwear, normally boots & shoes barely make it 1 year. We live on a farm & unless we are knee deep in mud, these are the shoes I wear- on the tractors, into town, walking the dogs, etc. Very comfortable & everyone should have a pair. One of the best things about these boots is the sole- it doesn't hold mud & dirt like lug soles do.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sammass Pleasantly surprised
I bought a pair of gum shoes late last winter to wear on wet days. I hate having soggy feet at the office or shopping. I assumed that come spring I would put them away. But I ended up wearing them all year round whenever it is wet or I'll be walking on wet grass. I also discovered that they make great boat shoes. My feet stay dry on the boat after launching and they grip the deck as well as any boat shoe but have more support and comfort. They have held up well to the salt other than the uppers fading slightly. What a nice surprise. Bought a pair for both my sons since.

I am a large animal veterinarian, and I have been wearing Bean's gumshoes to work every day for the last 25-30 years. I think a pair lasts about 5-6 years therefor I just purchased my fifth or sixth pair. They are comfortable, waterproof, and durable. A great bargain for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5áby YooperGuy Waaaaay too big
Had to send back. As stated, you should order a size smaller, but gets confusing when you are a half size and they don't come in half sizes. Hopefully the next size smaller works, I am still waiting as they are back ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RcaDog Two pairs bought since 1983. They LAST!
I'm a tall fellow, and usually wear 15W shoes. These are plenty wide and long for my feet, and they are size 14W! In fact if I put on extra thick sox, there would still be plenty of room.
My only (mild) suggestion for shoes like mine that are large is that you should increase the tongue length. Looks like you might have used the regular tongue in all the larger sizes?
Made very well. At my age (74) I expect this pair to last 30 years! (I probably will have stopped messy yard work by then!
