Rated 2 out of 5 by GrannyCamper2 Returned Shoes
This shoe was restyled from a wonderful pair of wool mary janes I bought previously. This restyled shoe was remade to look narrower by making the shoe box deeper. The heel back is now too high and cuts into the area above my heel and the height at the toe makes too much room in the top of the shoe at the toes. I then tried the shoe on with medium- weight wool socks but there was still too much room inside top of the toe area, and the back of the heel was still an issue. Returned.

I have but one regret...............that I didn't snap up the baby Blue color when it was available! I own 5 pairs of these shoes and wish you'd re-introduce a larger color line. Black and brown are getting oh so, boring!
They fit like a glove because of the adjustable strap across the top of the foot.
So sturdy. So comfy.
I walk on a lot of cement floors during the day and at the end of the day Women half my age are complaining about their feet aching but not me.............I still have a bounce in my step!
Thank you, LL Bean!

by Ari71 Fantastic, super comfortable!
This is the first time in over 10 years that I've had shoes that actually fit my feet. I've always had a hard time putting the extra money in and this time I did and I am so glad. My feet are wide so finding a good fit is very difficult. These fit like a glove and have just enough wiggle room that in the fall I will be able to wear them with socks. They might be a little too hot for summer but for spring they are working great. They are a bit heavy but it's nothing I couldn't get used to. I love how sturdy they feel though and they really grip the ground well so I don't slide around either. I'm just so happy with them, I highly recommend them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChicagoGrammy Strap in wrong place for me
These are lovely shoes and I am very sad that I can't wear them! The fit (7 1/2 wide) is perfect until I try to walk. My heel comes right out of the shoe. If the strap was located a little closer to the instep it would work fine. The sole is a nice thick rubber which is great, but I don't see it becoming flexible like leather would or a thinner sole. So back they go...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Librarydiva Great for walking and travel
I brought these shoes to Europe with me. I was hopeful that they would be comfortable. They were both stylish and comfortable.
I also brought a pair of boots for rain.

I have balance issues so I have to be careful when I buy footwear. But I wanted a shoe that I could wear either dress up or with jeans. I was skeptical about the velcro strap thinking they'd be either too loose or too tight across the top of my foot. But their not. I plan to buy the MJ sneakers in dk blue for summer as an alternative to sneakers. Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cbushgirl perfect shoe for me
I have a wide foot that needs a good toebox..and this shoe fits the bill in Wide. Also, I need heel stability as I hike, walk and geocache in the bush in these shoes..again, it fits the bill. It would be complete perfection if it was made in leather...my suede ones start to look shabby after all the outdoor abuse I put them through...not their fault, I just can't wear proper hiking boots.The velcro adjustable strap is easy to on & off and will accomodate a light or thicker sock as I need for that day's activities and warmth.
LL Bean: Please, Please make these Exactly the same but in leather ( the market mary janes aren't as stable in the heel for my purposes)

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoppyPoppy I love these shoes
I have a wide foot (normally a WW) but these shoes fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I also have a slight disability and can only walk in certain shoes. So finding shoes is always difficult. I was so excited to find these shoes that I bought one of every color in the suede. I always get so many compliments when I wear them
I got my most recent catalog and saw the gray wool version and was reaching for the phone to order a pair when I saw they only come in a B width. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. Hopefully, a wide width is in the future for the wool. I think they are beautiful and fun.

Super comfortable and stylish, too! I knew these would sell out fast and am glad I ordered early. At first the slight squeak of the patent leather was a concern but when I found out they were sold out and I was not able to order replacements, I haven't noticed the squeak at all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anne53 Comfortable but much too big...
These were comfortable but much too big. I will have to return them and possibly order a smaller size.
