Rated 5 out of 5 by orshopper2 Rainy climate? You need these.
No one in the Northwest should be without these. I slip them on all the time and they work in puddles and wet grass just fine. Seems as if they will last forever, made in Brazil. On first glance these look like shoes, so are ok for informal wear (brown) On second glance they are perhaps a little strange looking... I could do without the bow, but they work so well I really don't care. I wear a 7M and these are loose enough for socks, but not heavy socks without a little stretching. Low cut enough to be comfortable for high arches, took only a couple of hours to break in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ashevillian Not for me
Ordered my usual 7, shoe was too tight across the top of foot but too loose to wear without wool socks.
The shoes look really nice and are very cute...just not a good fit for me. Returning ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaSP I need more of these!
Where are these shoes? One of the best LLBean products I've purchased in years (absolutely!) and now they seem to be being sold off. I just hope I'm wrong, and that a whole new shipment comes in with new colors and small sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaSP Wonderful shoes
Wonderful shoes. Cute --- I constantly get compliments on them --- comfortable, well made, and practical. I wear them all the time, and wore them instead of boots for most of last winter. I have them in five colors and intend to buy any new color combination that appears, so I hope LLBean continues to carry them. Only thing to remember: get them a half size below what you usually wear as they do stretch, but then they fit perfectly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by downtownmom Soles not durable on black shoe
I admittedly am tough on shoes. I was expecting more however from the skimmers I bought last year. I wore them all the time and by March had worn holes in the soles. NOT very durable. Wish the sole could be tougher. The top part of the shoe wore well and still looks very new.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Limestone Too narrow
I read the reviews but liked the shoes so much I thought I'd play the odds. Unfortunately, I knew immediately upon trying them on that they were too tight in the width. Just walking across the house cause redness and rubbing. In their favor, they DO have an excellent sole for wet walkways & I liked the inner support. However, since this is the 2nd pr of shoes I have returned this summer & it's costing me $6.50 each time to return them, I'm thinking I just don't have Bean Feet.& should defer buying any more shoes til I can be in a Bean location to actually try them on. <sigh>

Rated 4 out of 5 by Starfish457 Surprised by the actual color
I bought a pair in "red currant" to replace my old red ones from LL Bean that eventually wore out. The fit was perfect right out out the box (size 6). However, the color was not red, or red/orange, but a bright coral-peachy-pink. Not at all what I was expecting, but so unusual, I am keeping them. I did get compliments on the color at the first wearing, but if you are hoping to match the shoes to red rain gear, I'd stay away from this color choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hclww Shiny and comfortable!
I ordered these in navy blue and think that they are cute. Not only that, but they are very comfortable. There is some arch support and while the shoe has good structure, it doesn't rub at all (a problem I have with low shoes). I do have very long, narrow, thin feet. Contrary to some reviews, I find them the tiniest bit loose in the width. They are close to perfect though and I will get heel strips if they loosen up any more. We are moving to a subtropical paradise and I wanted a cute pair of shoes that I won't mind wearing outside during typhoon season. Boots just sound like they'd be uncomfortable, given the warmth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Judysopinions Not Medium
I was so disappointed when I got these and they were really narrow in width rather than the medium that they were advertised as. I neglected to read the reviews that mentioned this. I think LLBean needs to change their sizing to reflect a more honest description of this shoe. It is such a cute shoe, but it is a narrow, not a medium.
