Rated 5 out of 5 by HuyC Professionalism, and comfort
I use these for work, and labs in university, and they are perfect for it.
I stand most of the times I wear these, and I have no issues with foot pains from it while I wear these.
Very comfortable, and they look great.
As they are leather, they do scratch, and crease marks will show up, but that is obvious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NotYourAverageJoe Most comfortable yet soles wear to quickly
This is by far the most comfortable shoe I have worn. Yet each year I need to buy another pair as the soles have worn completely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FPS3 Nice shoe
Nice comfortable shoe. Got two years almost to the day out of them. Upper is still new looking. Wondering if L.L. Bean can re sole. Just ordered another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MP7DE Fit is true and quality excellent
Comfortable and good looking enough to wear at work for business casual. Good with jeans too. Reviews say the sole is a bit soft and not durable...yeah, I can see that. I'm wearing the heals down after a few months of 3-5 day a week use. Otherwise, no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatLaker Comfort and style!
Last year I purchased the Allagash bison shearling chukkas and was so pleased with the comfort, fit, and performance that I decided to get the oxfords, as well. These are terrific shoes. They offer out-of- the-box comfort, are true to size, and the two-toned leathers look great. I own another pair of bison shoes (from a Montana company) and in all cases have found the bison leather to be malleable and extraordinarily soft, conforming almost immediately to your feet. In addition, bison leather is often more expensive, but these Allagash oxfords are very reasonably priced. LL Bean has designed a great shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WesJG Comfortable shoes
I have found these shoes to be very comfortable, right out of the box. They look good and have held up well to daily wear. My only complain, as noted by another reviewer, is the soles and heels seem to wear more quickly than I'd expect from a $100 shoe. I would definitely purchase another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Burrolento Quality Shoe with soft sole
I have been wearing these shoes for over a year, and am using 1-3 times/week both for casual and work use. These are highest quality, and while not suitable for suit-wear, look great for business casual or going out to the movies. I like the the look of two-toned, textured leather. The leather also has no visible scratches which is great compared to my similarly used shoes. My pair was sized true.
My only complaint and the reason for its loosing 1 star is that the soles/heal are wearing out too quickly. This seems to be the common complaint among other reviews reviews, and I hope the LLBean folks are listening so they can address in future versions of this quality shoe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jelinkster White stitching detracts
The shoes are holding up fine, and I like their design, but the white stitching---for me, at least---detracts from their overall appearance. I would have preferred brown or black stitching.(I've tried polishing , but the stitches reappear within a few days.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoge Handsome shoe, soft feel, great value
I bought a pair of size 13 Wide about six weeks ago. The photo makes the leather look a bit lighter than it actually is... And I prefer the slightly darker color. The fit and feel are exceptional, much better than other shoes that I paid 2x - 3x as much for and gave away to my brothers or nephew shortly after purchase because they just did not feel good after an hour or so. I wear these LLBean bison oxfords to my office -- they look great with dress khakis. Overall, very pleased with this purchase
