Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Not Just For The Boat
These shoes were comfortable right out of the box. I have a wide foot and I am always delighted to find a shoe that I can wear right away. They also look good with a pant or shorts and the inside of the shoe is soft and comfortable and does not rub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 Great shoe!
Got these in the brown and now I just got the green!! The green is a Beautiful colored BRIGHT green to BRIGHTEN up your dreary wardrobe of brown/black shoes!!! They do run a tad large!!! When I got the brown, I got my reg. size 10 shoe. And they ran a bit bigger!!! This time I opted to get a size 9 1/2. The fit is PERFECT!!! IF they should stretch a bit, no worries.......they will be fine!!! My size 10 did stretch but I wore heavier sox w/them. My ONLY issue w/this shoe is that the leather laces often do not want to stay shut when tied. The laces "make the shoe," so I didn't want to change them! But do expect to tie your shoe allot w/these laces!!! I need to do that w/my brown ones. I'm Unsure IF this will continue as they wear down w/age? I do like the white soles!! It's a very nice look!!! There seems to be some support in the arch area so it's not like walking on cardboard w/these!!! They are Comfortable even when I wear them to work and walk on concrete floors all day!! Can't beat these for this deal and I'd definitely recommend these to a friend for sure!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bettina Just what I expected
No, they are not the sturdy boat shoes that mariners live in, but they suit my purposes just fine. I usually wear 7-7.5 so ordered the 7. The length is good;a bit wide but do not flop off. They are comfortable enough for casual wear and the soft sable color is perfect since I wear a lot of khaki color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmblueeyes Runs full size to 1 1/2 size too large
I was so excited to have found these shoes, and on sale! They arrived yesterday and as soon as I opened the box I could tell they were too large. I had read all the reviews and as recommended ordered down a size. I would guess that a size 6 would fit someone who would normally wear a 7.5 shoe. Unfortunately the smallest size available is 6 so I will be returning them today. Aside from the sizing I found the shoes to be excellent quality and I love the color.

I was really excited about this pair of shoes until I got them. I thought they would be a medium dark red, but the Cayenne is more of a brownish red / rust color. Definitely an earth tone. One of the shoes really bites at the upper instep of my foot - it is due to the square laces. It might break in to the point where it is not painful but I don't know that these would ever feel great. They are lined with suede inside the shoe, appears to be the same material as on the outside of the shoe. No padding, and the shoe is very thin.
I thought they might be similar to a pair of red nubuck Sperrys I bought my son, since the price point was similar with both of them on sale (the Sperry's actually cost less). The Sperry nubuck is twice as thick, with a very cushioned footbed insert.
This shoe reminds me of an unconstructed suit. Not terrible for the price but I don't have room in my closet for shoes I don't love.

Very comfortable and attractive. I ordered a half size down, and was glad I did. Do not expect a lot of arch support.

Do not expect a comfy boat shoe. These shoes have no arch at all-and I do not need much support. They run very large and are below Bean quality and not worth the attractive reduced price. The green color was gorgeous and I wanted to love them but.. back they go.

Great shoes! They do run a tad large, so I'm glad I took the advise of other commenters and ordered a 1/2 size smaller, (the width is fine). The fit is perfect! I got the red suede and the color is a very nice shade of slightly brownish red. No break-in time, right out of the box, they are comfortable! Highly recommend these!
LLBean does it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CapitalCanuck Perfect boat shoe!
I typically wear a size 10, but I wanted a snug fit in these so that I can wear without a sock in the spring/summer so went with a 9. These are gorgeous suede boat mocs and fit like a glove. And you can't beat this sale price! Just wish the navy were still available as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Grace12345 Poor quality
I am honestly shocked by all the good reviews here...I was excited to order these because of all the positive reviews, and my Sperry Topsiders have just worn out, so I wanted a new boat shoe.
These are not as expected. Yes, they run large, but that can be exchanged. The real problem is that the soles don't seem to be well made. There is a half insole, so that my heel is well padded enough, but the ball of my foot rests on a very thin sole, so that I can almost feel the ground underneath. It is uncomfortable and feels cheap. Also, you can see that the half-sole is glued in...as in, there is a large glue line across the middle of the footbed. This makes it feel cheaper. WHy not just have a fully lined footbed? I thought about trying to rip out the half insole and put in full insoles myself, but I am just going to return them instead, too much work. When walking around my kitchen in them, they felt as thin as my worn-out Sperrys.
Perhaps I somehow got a bad pair? I am just confused as no other reviewer has mentioned poor quality and super thin glued in soles. I even showed them to a friend to ask her opinion, and she said "THOSE are L.L. Bean??" Not the quality we have grown to love from Bean. Will be returning today.
