Rated 3 out of 5 by Mynickname2 Oh man so disappointed
These are cute and would be great but the back is really high and hits the ankle. I read others with the same issue but thought it couldn't be that bad. Sad to say it is. Otherwise comfy & cute. They do run large. I usually wear a 6.5 so wasn't sure. Got the 6. Size was great. It's the high back. No way around it. They will be rubbing & digging. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by Austin2 Made in China
Well I went back and bought a second pair. On the left shoe the straps are exactly as they should be on the right shoe the straps are too long. I like the shoes for summer and I like the fact that they look adorable on with crop jeans , comfortable and they are on sale. So i just may keep them as long as no one else notices the difference in the straps

Rated 5 out of 5 by Austin2 Great summer shoes
I read the reviews and ordered one half size smaller. Fit is great. I purchases these in cement and just went back for the navy. These shoes were not made to wear with sox, I tried and the strap only works without sox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tja80020 Great shoes, great price!
I wear the heck out of these shoes! With no feeling in my feet I need the strap to keep shoes on and these work great! They are quick drying, and look great in summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by smarties I really, really like these shoes
I have had my shoes for about two years now. The only issue I have had with them is that on one shoe only the closure tape has worn off so I no longer can keep that one shoe on.
I will return them to see if LL Bean will replace them for me. They are a lovely shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dinahh Nice look and feel
Usually wear 8 1/2. Ordered both 8 & 8 1/2 and returning the larger size. Even with inserts and orthotics the 8 were plenty big.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopperinVermont great shoe but fit is too wide for a narrow foot
I LIKE these shoes but they are too wide. I have the very same shoe style and size 9M from 2 years ago, which fit my narrow foot very well, with the Velcro straps. But these are much wider all around the toe box and sides, so the sides and top are loose around my foot. The sizing has changed, alas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LMK1 Heeltab of shoe now 1/2 inch higher
Loved the old version of this shoe, so purchased the new one. Only to find that the heeltab (top of the back of shoe) sits half an inch higher than the original shoe I purchased. I still have the old shoe so I was able to measure the difference. This means the shoe sits just under (and rubs) my ankle bone. It is SO UNCOMFORTABLE. I can't believe llbean made this change given the complaints made about the back of the original shoe - sitting too high on many people!!!!! SO DISAPPOINTED!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by geoskimom Dressier than running shoes
I always wear running shoes to work, but wanted something a tad bit more elegant on the rare occasion I wear a skirt, skort,or dress. These are attractive and practical. Ordered in my usual size and they were enormous. On phone with LLBean's customer service rep decided to give it another try a half size smaller. Glad I did. They fit fine. Have worn them around the house with a little liner sock though have yet to take them on an all day outing. There's a little arch built in, but I may add a custom insole too. I have a "low volume" foot and normally wear an 81/2 Narrow in a running shoe or 8 in a dress shoe. These fit in a 7 1/2. (PS. Ignore those slider bars. For some reason they don't seem to be adjustable on an iPad. Length is long, fit is wide for my scrawny foot).

Rated 1 out of 5 Not good quality
I wore these on vacation and they cut up the back of my heels so badly. I had to wear band aids all the time where they were hitting me on the back of my heels. I am really disappointed with these shoes. I thought LL Bean would have better quality. Will not buy another pair of shoes from them!
