My husband has to order most of his shoes since he wears a size 7.
He took these out of the box, put them on and wore them the rest of the day. He said they feel great! Thank you for having a wide range of sizes in men's shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by averyloyalcustomer Simply...the Best
RE: Casco Bay Boat Shoe
Have purchased all major brands of boat shoes over the years...received these today and as I tried on...immediately felt comfortable and the right fit...absolutely no breaking-in period required...the leather is good looking, the shoe is very easy to step into, and I'm not a walking advertisement with the L.L. Bean name plastered on the shoe...been a proud and loyal customer of L.L. Bean since 1973...this shoe is simply the best boat shoe...nuff said

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyingRobin Order half size up
I bought the navy/gray and they are excellent quality as I've come to expect from LL Bean. However, I had to return the first pair because they ran small. I purchased 10M in previous Casco Bay Boat Mocs but needed 10 1/2 with these.

I've had my new Casco Bay Boat Mocs for a week now and just love them. They were super comfortable, right out of the box - and have only gotten better as they begin to mold to my feet. If your feet are between sizes, go to the smaller 1/2 size (I wear a 9.5 in some shoes and a 10 in others - and went with a 9.5 in these and the fit is perfect). Nice, soft leather - yet a firm feel on the foot. Also got caught in a heavy down pour - and my feet stayed dry (though these are not advertised as being water proof). Really pleased with the quality and highly recommend these boat mocs!

These look to be made in El Salvador, as were the true premium L L Bean boat shoes that I bought seven or eight years ago, now apparently no longer available. Those had a padded tongue, these do not. Those had a wide padded lip around the foot opening, these do not. Those had a single piece of leather from the heel counter around the toe and back to the heel, these do not - they are pieced on the inner side. Those had nice brass vents on the inner side above the sole, these do not.. I'll wear those until they fall off my feet; they're absolutely the best boat shoes, and the most comfortable, I've ever had. On the plus side, these are available in Wide, as were those. The last time I bought boat shoes I bought from another maker who still handmakes shoes in Maine, because these were not available then. If I need to, I might try these ... if they're still available in a couple of years. The price is certainly O.K. and I think the El Salvador maker makes a good shoe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TravelFromRichmond Please go back to solid colors
I've had my Casco boat shoes for several years. They fit good. I was going to order another pair, but LL Bean has changed to a two-toned color which looks cheap. PLEASE give us the option for solid colors like before. And when something is good, don't change it. Gave 3-stars because of the color change, otherwise I'd give 5-stars for the old product.

I have owned many other brands and these are the best. One brand was not durable and these are. Another was not comfortable and these are. Add the LLB guarantee and you can't go wrong. This will be the only brand I buy from now on

Rated 3 out of 5 by dossen Always on back order.
This is my third order in three years for the exact same shoe...and its always on backorder. A size 11 mens boat shoe is NOT an unusual size nor product. I think two weeks would be a reasonable goal for delivery of any product, not a month. The shoes are of decent quality it is just that it takes too long to get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopllbean1 First Pair of Boat Shoes Bought at LL Bean
A friend of mine has worn these for years.
I asked him what brand they were. I looked at the leather and
i even had him take to shoe off to see the construction of the shoe.
Well, i have a pair now. I just put them on i can tell they are going to be a favorite. I am going to by another pair for sure.
Price, quality and style all great!!!
A very happy camper, so long other brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HSF44 Painful experience
I went to a L.L. Bean retail store to buy a pair of shoes. I looked around, found a pair I liked (the shoe that will be reviewed), and purchased them.
A few days after purchase I had a casual church function where I wore these shoes. This proved to be a mistake. After wearing the shoes for a few hours my left ankle was rubbed raw to the point where when I took them off the inside was stained with blood.
I returned them that very day which fortunately was a hassle free process. I advise you be careful with this particular model. I was very surprised as I have never had problems with Bean shoes in the past.
