Rated 5 out of 5 by BillatLLB Perfect Fit
Never bought shoes from LL Bean but thought I would give it a try as all my other LL Bean purchases have been very satisfactory. I ordered online (even though there is an LL Bean store 10 minutes away!) and received my shoes within a couple of days sans shipping charges!
The shoes were a perfect fit, extremely comfortable and felt like I had been wearing them for years.
Best shoes I ever bought and I never left the house!
Lifetime LL Bean shopper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmrgncyMD Love these shoes
Comfortable, good looking dressy casual shoes. I wear wide, which necessitated ordering since there are no wide at stores that I am aware of. In fact, there is a pretty lousy selection at stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RalphU Comfortable shoe
Extremely lightweight, a very comfortable shoe. As other reviews had stated, they do run a bit snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FinickeyFrank Good, substantial walking shoe
Rockport has always made a good shoe, in my experience. These may not be the softest walking shoe around, but they are well made and are better than some others if you are walking on a dirt trail or doing some mild hiking. The soles are tough, and they can take it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrayG Color too dark
The fit of the shoe was OK, but I did not like the color. The color in the catalog photo was what I wanted. The actual brown color was so dark that it was almost black. I returned them for a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DickB Nice looks; lacking in comfort
It seems that all shoes today are hard feeling; no cushioning. That is how I would describe these. How much more would it cost to put just a little cushioning/softness under the foot. The prices keep going up, the quality keeps going down. I hope this trend reverses itself soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DukeOfNelson Lacking traction on wet surfaces
These shoes were comfortable right from the moment I opened the box and they remain comfortable 10 months on. If I had reviewed them in the fall I would have given 4 stars, but having worn them in colder wetter weather I have to drop a star. This is because of the poor traction on smooth side walks when there is a coating of frost or a damp growth of moss or lichen. A particular hazard are the metal studs placed one the margins of pedestrian crossings in the UK for example. When these are wet, the World Tour Walkers just skid right over them.
The shoes desperately need a more aggressive tread pattern to be safer in these conditions. I can't remember owning a pair of shoes that had worse grip in similar conditions.
For dry conditions these shoes work well and I can wear them all day while walking around a city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanquilt Rockports
I ordered these shoes for my husband. He needed a casual, but professional looking comfort-shoe. He loves these. They are a good snug fit, stylish, but very comfortable during walking. He wears a size 8, and the Rockports fit as he expected. You always get quality when you go with Rockport.
