Rated 4 out of 5 by JeffMU Great shoe, poor insoles
After about 10 months of use, the entire leather and rubber part of the shoe was wearing very well and was incredibly comfortable. However, the insole fell apart, starting with the area right under my heel. I called LL Bean and Rockport to see if they could just replace the insole, so we wouldn't have to waste the leather and rubber but they said it was all or nothing. I decided to have LL Bean replace them with a new pair due to the disintegration of the insole but it feels wrong to replace an entire pair of shoes just because the weakest, cheapest part failed.

As usual, this pair of shoes arrived very quickly and were exactly as advertised. My husband says that they are very comfortable - right from the start. They are dressy but have a secure sole for walking on slippery surfaces.

Over the years I have ordered 3 pairs of these shoes. I recently ordered my 4th pair and the new version is not leather lined as the description states. I spoke with Rockport and they indicated that they now have an antimicrobial lining so I'm sending them back to Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indiana466712 So far so good
I'm super hard on shoes. I've literally walked through three pair in the last year. I've had a pair of the Iron Worker boots for several years now and have been very hard on them. Still going strong. The only thing that kept me from getting the Iron Worker oxfords is they weren't available in black, so I got these.
I've never been disappointed with anything I've purchased from LL Bean so I had high expectations for these shoes. So far, they seem to be holding up well. The heel is getting a bit worn but that is to be expected. I pound a lot of pavement - about 2.5 miles worth - every day.
These are comfortable like a tennis shoe. They buff up to a really nice gloss. The interior holds up well and the size was spot on. Some folks are complaining about their shoe being a bit off. I seem to be a pretty consistent 9 and these were no exception.
I get nervous about mail ordering shoes especially. I want to get my hands on them. However, there wasn't a shoe in all of Bloomington Indiana (or Indianapolis that I found) worth buying. The leather just didn't have that quality and I'm not going to throw down over a hundred bucks for something just to replace it in four or five months.
Six months later and these are still great. No break in period needed. No shredded interior, no blisters, great shine. I'm pretty happy with them.

These shoes fit perfectly and are comfortable from the very first use.
The plain style makes them easy to polish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Repete2 Small and tight
I ordered EE width that is my usual size. These were labeled as a W. My bostonians that I wear everyday follow the same sizing nomenclature but are much wider. I could barely get these on a foot and could not put weight on it. So tight that I didn't try the other shoe on. The EE (W) was like a D. The length seemed true but I couldn't put my weight on it so I'm not sure. It didn't work for me. Hope it works for you. The shoes were nice and I'm sorry they didn't fit.

Nice shoe, well constructed. Have not worn them a lot yet so too early to tell much else. Needed brown, not crazy about this chocolate brown, but will do.

Rockport shoes have been my go-to shoes for casual and outdoors for years. But now, thru Bean, I can get dress shoes that fit perfectly, are well made, look good, and wear like they were made for me. I take a 9 1/2 Wide EE, and they fit just right. I'm so glad Bean is carrying these Rockport shoes. Rockport offerings have not been as good lately, but Bean never fails to select the best and offer them in styles I wear, sizes that fit. Love these shoes!
