Rated 4 out of 5 by MichiganMomOfThree Nice shoe, but runs BIG!!
I researched this type of shoe for over a week, and finally decided on this pair. Ordered these shoes for my 8th grade son to wear to school. After reading all the reviews that said to order down vs.order same size, I thought I'd take a chance and order a size 10 which is his normal gym shoe size. The arrived in a week and were beautiful right out of the box. Picky son actually loved them! Unfortunately, they were slipping off the back of his heel and they had to be exchanged. I figured a size 9.5 would be just great. (Shipping back to LLB was free, but to get the new shoe sent back to me cost me $6.50#
Size 9.5 arrived in a week, and guess what? It's still too big! Still slipping off his heel. Ugh! Now, I have to send these back to LLB and ask for an exchange #another $6.50 charge to me!) This time I'll order a size 8.5. If they come back too small, I'm done. I can't afford to keep paying money to return shoes that are not true to size. If they don't work for us, unfortunately my son will still be without a slip on shoe for school. BELIEVE THE REVIEWS WHEN THEY SAY TO ORDER DOWN A SIZE!! You might even order down 1.5 sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiveInColorado Happy Purchase
I was looking for a nice pair of shoes to wear in Colorado. Mornings can be full sun and by the afternoon your in a snow storm. Received my shoes on Tuesday (it was 50 degrees) and woke up to an inch of snow the next day. I wore them out to run errands and on walks that had ice and my footing was great. I also have a high instep so slip on shoes are always a concern. These fit very nice with a normal sock and my feet remained warm.

Great looks, sizing was perfect. With "wide" available I went one size smaller than when "wide" is not available. Look to be very durable and they were comfortable from the go.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very Comfortable
Got a pair of these shoes, in brown, a few weeks ago. It took a few days to break them in. After that, they are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I wear a 9 1/2 medium and the fit was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaylar The second time around!
I have three pairs of these - one pair dating back 13 years - all have been great but the 5 year old pair - sole kept separating from the shoe at the toe on both shoes - I had glued it 3 times, the first of within a year of getting them - the ONLY LLBean purchase that I haven't been completely satisfied with EVER - so last month, I called and complained because other than that, the shoes had been fine - the friendly telephone guy reminded me that they were Guaranteed - Period! So I returned them (at no charge because of my LLBean Visa) and have been wearing the new pair two weeks - comfortable, well-fitting, and well-made - NOT a bit stylish - Perfect! To celebrate, I threw out the 13 year old pair because they were just plain worn out, no fault of LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by waynecurt Comfort right out of the box
I have a lot of foot-related issues... dysfunctional and painful tendons.... no arch. But I also need work shoes that are nice looking and don't draw attention to themselves. I put these on right out of the box and they felt fantastic. The extra cushioning and finished leather give me everything I wanted... and was having trouble finding. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by clbandys Lightweight and comfortable with good support
They were exactly what I expected. A little tight on the top arch but after a few days they broke in and was what I expected. Hopefully will maintain fit and last. I wear them 2 to 3 days a week. Another quality product from L.L. Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ltcjdc Order your normal size.
I believed the reviewers that recommended buying a half-size down from your regular size for this shoe. Don't believe it. I bought a half size smaller and had to pay the $6.50 to return them because they were far too small. The quality of the shoe is fine. Not a pleasant experience buying shoes when you can't try them on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by QualityProblems There are Quality Problems with these...
I purchased a pair of these a month ago and liked them so much that I ordered a second pair. I will doing a Quick Replacement for the second time (going on third pair) because even though they are stamped with the correct sizes, you can tell just by looking that the shoes in the 'Pair' are not a matched set. Since LL Bean has a lifetime satisfaction guarantee I'm going to let these sit until the new year when hopefully they will have a new shipment in with better quality control. I have to admit I'm disappointed as I expected better from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seavixen These are awesome shoes
We live in Seattle and waterproof is the name of the game. My son works out in the weather so I bought him a pair of these shoes two years ago. They worked out very well for him. They are not only comfortable but stylish, and he wore them every day. He has a very wide foot and it was great that they are offered in EE because that width is almost impossible to find. They were at the top of his Christmas list this year! I would recommend them to anyone that wants a comfortable, stylish, waterproof shoe.
