Rated 5 out of 5áby NE1410S Like Cinderella and the Glass Slipper - Perfect!
Last summer I took a pair to my sister-in-law in Warsaw. We were all going on a family cruise through Europe and I thought they would be more comfortable than her sandals. Well, she never took them off - I swear she wore those slides morning, noon and night. It got to the point where our friends (also on the cruise) started counting the number of times they saw her wearing her "little blue shoes". To my surprise she was STILL wearing them in November - she loved them that much and said she never had a pair of shoes that comfortable in her life. I finally had to get her out of those summer shoes so I sent her a pair of the suede ones last month. Well guess what - it's Groundhog's Day all over again. LL Bean, you have a huge fan (and alot of her jealous friends) in eastern Europe!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LoveMyCorgis Great For Summer
I usually take size 7 Wide, but ordered 7 Medium because my color choice was not available in Wide. These fit perfectly and are very comfortable. They will be quite cool in the summer. If you have a narrow foot they may be too wide.

Rated 4 out of 5áby cashmeremom Very nice slide, but poor last
I really wanted to keep these slides. They look very nice on, and they?re less expensive than Merrill?s and Merrill doesn?t offer in Wide. But the instep is too deep, it comes up too far, and digs into top of foot. I do have high arches, so these are definitely not for anyone with a high arch. Contrary to other reviewers, I found the ?Wide? on the narrow side, just barely wide enough with a medium weight sock. Length is perfect. Twig color is fine, although the lighter tan is nicer, but was sold out. I think the shoe designer got the sizing and ?last? all wrong.
I?d try them again in future if redesigned.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Geneseoshopper Super shoes
I can't remember ever writing a review for LL, but these shoes have been so wonderful, I had to write. I have probably a C width foot- a size you no longer see. These shoes did three great things- fit my "a bit wider" foot, fit my high arch, and the offered great support. I needed a quick to get into shoe, as I have a young pup and when she needs to go out, she means "NOW!". I keep them on the shoe rack next to the back door and often find that I am wearing them without really be aware of it. They are for me terrific and I ordered the black for inside the house this winter. I will probably order navy when spring emerges, to have a nice pair to wear with nicer jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.
