Rated 5 out of 5áby greengac Accept NO Substitute!
Being a child of the 70's & 80's, I have had a few different pairs of these "duck shoes" but they've all been uncomfortable and inflexible, too hot when worn inside, and not warm enough when worn outside. NOT SO WITH THESE!!! They are comfortable and fit properly so that the tops do not "bang" against my ankle bones and my heels do not come out with every step, pulling down my socks and flopping on my feet. I will NEVER buy any other "duck shoes" again! These are the real deal!

Rated 3 out of 5áby MLG55 HUGE
These fit like men's shoes. I am an 8 and I ordered an 8 and I could have put someone else in the shoe with me, they are so big. I sent them back and got a whole size smaller, sz 7 and they are still large, but if they are worn with the heavy smartwool socks and tighten up the laces, they fit great. I think I will grow to like them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby arabianhorselady 8" Uninsulated Bean Boots
These are tough, practical, comfortable boots that keep my feet dry for hours. I use them fall and winter for barn work and to go up into our Christmas tree farm in fall to work harvest and cleaning. Finally boots that are wide enough!

Rated 1 out of 5áby BridgerG Horrible Fit
Was so happy to see this shoe came in narrow Unfortunately the only narrow part was the instep. Heel way too wide and shoe slips off when walking. Very disappointed and sending them back.

Rated 4 out of 5áby PracticalShopper3 Well made and comfy - go down 2 sizes
These are very well made and comfortable for walking. Make sure to go down 2 sizes! The LL Bean sizing alert says to go down 1, but I wear an 8 to 8 1/2 wide typically, and the 6 regular fits me perfectly in this moc. I would guess that if you have regular width feet, you should choose narrow because the regular width fits my wide feet. Size down and you'll love them. I would have given these 5 stars, but I gave it 4 because you need to go down 2 sizes not 1.

Rated 3 out of 5áby yorktownbean Not as happy with these as my hunting boots
My regular shoe size is an 8.5M or a 9 for boots. I normally purchase the size 8M in the hunting boot style since it gives me more room for a thicker sock. I initially ordered the size 7M in this shoe and it did fit in terms of length but the heel slippage was uncomfortable and I could not move my foot forward in the shoe because it was too narrow. I've never worn a wide shoe in my life but decided to try a 7Wide in hopes that I could wear them more comfortably like a Dansko professional clog where your heel is supposed to rock when you walk without hitting the back of the shoe. This actually worked! However, the right shoe feels slightly more narrow than the left. I measured the width/circumference of my feet, measured the shoes and I can't decide if there is a manufacturing variation or if it's my foot that is to blame. The left shoe feels more roomy in the toe box and instep. So, I took the insoles out of both and replaced them with my thinner Merrell ortholites and now they fit better with better heel coverage as well. maybe the cushy Bean insole ( which I love) is just too thick for this style of shoe. Keep in mind that I don't mind wearing them like Danskos with my heel rocking. It doesn't pull my sock off either and I'm wearing cotton ragg socks. Given the hassle of trying to get them to fit, I cannot recommend these to anyone unless they can purchase them from a store where they can try them on first. LL Bean closed their store near me so, I didn't have that option but, if you are willing to try them and are a medium width, I would recommend trying the wide width in the size that Bean recommends. Bean's customer service was very helpful as usual- thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5áby RenaisssanceLady Fabulous. Same llBean QUALITY!!!!!
I wear an 11M in regular foot ware. I ordered an 11 AA. Perfect
for me. I have on mid-weight socks and could not be more
thrilled. I have several pairs of bean boots and my old brown
ones are medium width. Great with heavier weight sock. These
are black and I will use them for rainy days when more "dressed
up". Thanks llBean for keeping the standards up!!!

Rated 1 out of 5áby ljrn Really bad fit!
I have two other pairs of Bean Boots and love them! I was really excited about getting these. I wear 9 so ordered 8. Boots were about 1 1/2 inches too long, front part felt narrow, back was so big they flopped even with thick socks. I'm so sorry they don't fit! They will have to go back and with no alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mintcandycane Rubber Moc
These rubber moc's are wonderful. I have had a pair for 12 or 13
years. I only wear them in the wet winter months and sometimes in the spring working around the yard. You will get years of wear from
these mocs. They will not let you down. Made in the U.S.A is

Rated 4 out of 5áby gaabiel great quality mocs but sizing not right
These mocs are very well made, good quality. I have two pairs that are over 10 years old with much daily wear .I ordered a new pair But so far i have had to return 3 pairs because of sizing. So please, beware, order " down "in size & if you have narrow feet, do not get medium, they are not true to size even with the socks LLBeans suggest. have always been pleased with all of LLBeans products but not these mocs, only regarding the size.
