Rated 3 out of 5 by BerkeleyCAMomof3 Just Okay
I've bought Comfort Mocs in the past, and it's all my son has worn for the past 4 years, but these Ventilated Slides just don't fit as well as Merrill's, which I bought and have been wearing for the past year. I took a chance and tried these again today, and they feel boxy, like there's too much space around the middle & front of the foot. They also feel like my foot is going to fall out when I walk, despite feeling like they are the correct size. Perhaps the shoe comes up too far on the top of the foot, preventing the heel from settling down as well as it should. Just feels awkward when walking. Feels great when I just slip it on... I probably will get Merrill's again next time. They cost more, but the design is perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gillie793 Look nice, but very disappointing
I ordered my normal size, only to find that they were huge. I ordered a half size smaller and was shocked that they were the right size, but were still a bit wide.
These look very much like current popular style, but have essentially no arch support and are very short on comfort. The innersoles are very thin and flimsy and sit on a hard bottom. They would also be much more feminine and more comfortable if they did not come up quite as high on the foot.
I was looking for slides to replace a style that I purchased here about 6 years ago, which strangers commented on and had the support and comfort of sneakers, allowing one to take long walks in them and/or wear them all day long. (I had about 6 pairs of them and they are about worn out since I've lived in them for all this time).
These slides were significantly more money than my older ones and so disappointing. Sorry! But please find a way to bring back the "sneaker" comfort and arch support into shoes like these

Rated 1 out of 5 by merrymama Too wide!! Returned them.
Much too wide - and I have wide feet! I bought regular width but they are "sloppy wide" with socks. I like the slip-on, the mesh ventilation, and the all-black. I even tried exchanging them for another pair, but same problem. I had to return them. The width is made for elephants! They are more like a loose slipper. I was in a major department store recently where they sell black mesh slip-on shoes and the cut was a feminine slim look, yet my wide feet fit the regular width just fine, no sloppiness, and they look super! Sorry, Bean, but I had to return yours. Hope you will re-design them narrower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mtwalkr runs small, not so wide
I always wear a size 9 but these were a bit small. They also were very tight across the instep, and didn't seem like a wide size at all. Maybe they're considered wide in China, where these were made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by madaline Dear LL-Bean!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought my first pair in July of last year they were perfect running walking and working at an animal facility were I'm always wet in one form or another they were great and a find this great I was walking in haven then 6months later the small lather strip worn into holes and then stuffing came out then the threading come lose... so I thought maybe I just got a lemon so I got another pair when I got the money up for them and once again they fell apart and no I'm sorry LL-bean I wont be getting these again its just to much money for a poor quality pair of shoes.
The bad part about this is in the advertisement about the shoes says it can handle all the thing I do at work and even more when hiking but I must decline all these shoes are good for is the beach and maybe the pool better yet just use them for house shoes and maybe they will last a lot longer then 6months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by b3ck79 These are perfect now
I returned a previous pair that was nominally my size, but actually much too big. After reading more recent reviews that said they are now true to size, I tried them again and am happy to report that they are! (at least my 8B's are) They are comfortable, cool and I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollyJes Very comfortable; thinking of buying another pair
These shoes are VERY comfortable -- Can wear with or without socks easily. I'm tempted to buy another pair while they're still available. The fit is true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pshayse Simply the best!
I just love these shoes, the fit is great. I bought a half size larger then I normally wear and wide. They are like wearing slippers but cling to your feet because of the elastic. I am thinking I will purchase another pair to wear for gardning. They are so light weight and comfy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by b3ck79 Like them a lot; don't love them
These are comfortable and much cooler than a more expensive, similar looking slide of another brand. Two drawbacks:
* I wear a reliable 8 B/medium in all shoes and ordered that size in these -- they are HUGE. It feels like I'm wearing my dad's shoes. They fit ok with big socks.
* The inner liners are not glued down very well and stick to my feet if and when I do slip into them with bare feet. When I pull my feet out the liners come along.
