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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bettina Nice looking shoes
I wanted to like these shoes, like everything else at LLBean. I wore them briefly around the house, not long enough to see if the high back that others disliked would be a bother. The thing I did not like was the feeling of the innersole - my feet began to burn. I would not be apt to wear socks with this style of shoe so that is why i am reluctantly sending them back. Although they looked a little wide, that was OK and the shoe would be a nice change from flip-flops (Maine Isle are great). If they made size 7 1/4 that would be my size and the 7's fit fine in length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aUSconsumer Love these!
Bought this shoe in navy in past springs and am so glad they are offered this year again as I had wished I had bought more colors. As with any new shoe they have a breaking in period but after a few wearings they are comfortable & cool by design for the warm weather months. I purchased the "cement" color and they are a great neutral beige/tan. They are such a cute style & I have had many questions as to where I found them. I will order more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lisa861 Great looking shoe but
I wore them to a Hootie concert last night and they really hurt my feet. They run small and slightly narrow. Will reorder in larger size...hope that helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ohioshopperdayton Look great, feels great
Shoes are as pictured. Got size 6, which is what I normally wear at other shoe companies, and they fit fine.
A shoe insert helps to lift foot up so that back does not rub against ankle.
