Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazySpaniard Good fit, very comfortable
I like these sandals a lot. I have a very narrow foot but it's a size 11 which usually means I end up with shoes that are the right length but way too roomy for my foot. These were the case but they have 3 straps that you can adjust, so once I adjusted all of them, my feet were snug as bugs and I don't have to worry about my feet flopping around inside the sandals when I walk. I bought them for a trip in Indonesia where it'll be rainy season but really hot. I wanted something that could handle the water but still be light and airy for my hot feet. I ordered the cream-colored ones, but would have liked to have ordered the ones that appear on the picture, which is a very soft blue with grey trim. That color was displayed on the model but was not available to choose from.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JaneNY Boothbay sandals, non leather
I ordered the non leather one the fitting was good. It looked nice and looked comfortable. However, it had sharp edges on the inside that gave my many blisters after wearing them for one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by atlgal best walking shoes ever!
I bought these shoes early in the spring just before a trip to D.C. and used them regularly, right out of the box on that trip. Over the summer they have been my go-to sandals all summer and into the fall. The straps are all adjustable, the sole is rubber and gives with walking impact, but not too much. I must say after the entire summer they still look almost new. My only problem now is that colder weather is on it's way!

Rated 1 out of 5 by luvthecountry Leather vs. non leather sandals
Have the brown leather in these sandals. They are fantastic. I wear a 6 1/2 shoe and ordered a 7. Had to return them for a 6, but they are great. I wear them to walk and play pickle ball. However, when I purchased the black non-leather sandal, I ordered a six. They are just that much shorter so that they do not fit and are not comfortable. I will be taking them back. I may try on a 7 at the store to see how they feel, buy the soles of these do not feel the same as the leather so I will probably just take them back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tallgram Not the same as the last pair
I purchased these sandals in 2012 and I absolutely love them. The new ones I ordered were 3/8 " shorter than the original pair. I can't order the next size up because I wear size 11. I am SO disappointed that your size quality control is not reliable. I must return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamiphil Great summer shoe, very affordable
These are great casual sandals. I wear them all summer. They are great for walking. Great all over support and padding, especially arch support. They are just as good as similar and much more expensive Teva's I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by savvygrammyof11 Wonderful comfort
I don't know what it is about these sandals, but they have turned out to be one of the most comfortable sandals I have ever purchased/worn. And I don't go for cheap brands. I have worn Naot, Keens, Merrells, etc. These fit my size 7 feet so perfectly. No little toes hanging over the edge and not too much room beyond my toes. The arch support hits at just the right place, making these a pleasure to walk in. Also, the cushioning is superb. I don't write using superlatives too often, but these great sandals deserve it. Finally, I love that the 3 straps are adjustable, adding to the overall comfort of the shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MKNC Great sandal, one wear flaw
I purchased this sandal two summers ago in green and I have lived in them. They have outstanding comfort and support for my narrow feet which crave cushioning. I would say the fit runs rather large because in a closed shoe I wear an 8.5 to a 9 and these sandals in size 8 are more than long enough for my foot. The three adjustable straps mean feet of many widths can enjoy them. My one complaint is that after the first year, the gray fabric covering the padded area of the straps (not the colored fabric webbing) began to wear off and expose the white padding underneath. At two years, although the soles, treads and colored webbing are in great shape, the wear problem on the padding cover fabric has gotten worse, happening in random patches, so this is making the sandal look a bit "beaten up".

Rated 3 out of 5 by 88xts45 love the shoe but
the shoes are a good fit but I could do without the ridge that hits the ball of my feet which puts pressure where its not needed. I had to pull the straps tighter and the straps hang over the side of the shoe. But I still like the look and will wear them

Rated 4 out of 5 by golfcat123 Boothbay Sandals straps
First I love these sandals but had to take them to a shoe maker as the straps were too long when fastened. They stuck out about 1.5 inches. The shoe maker was able to modify the straps and they look like they came directly from LL Bean. I wore them on vacation and did a lot of walking and did not have any problem. I have issues with my feet and many shoes aggravate the problem, but these sandals did not. Additional note, my shoe maker made sure I was aware that LL Bean stands behind their products and I could have returned them. He thought the sandals were a good design except for the length of the straps.
