Rated 3 out of 5 by ShoppingGuru Too narrow for me
I like the look of the shoe, but as soon as I tried them on, I knew they were too narrow in the toe area for me. I would like to see these in a wide width. I would recommend these shoes if you are looking for a narrow width shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hoosierwelshcobs pretty style but falls FLAT
nice idea, a dressy athletic shoe, but stops there, NO ARCH SUPPORT, soles too thin, not for anyone who is on their feet :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by filumena2 Poor shoe......
Forget that I waited over 3 months for the Beansport casual shoe in gunsmoke to arrive...114 days to be exact!...The shoe, or sneaker as I would call them, is not at all like the photo. Perhaps if the shoe or sneaker were shown at many different angles a person might get a better idea of just how the shoe or sneaker might look on. You can't really tell in the photo!...With shoe or sneaker in hand.....The toe box starts off narrow and widens out, sort of going to a point, Quite noticeable when it is finally laced up. Hence a narrow toe box. But the biggest problem with these shoes or sneakers is that they are poorly designed or put together. The flap for the tongue of the shoe or sneaker is not properly affixed or sewn, to at least the left shoe or sneaker in my case, causing a bump on top of my instep. Is this how they are all made or is this defect just unique to my order? Not Good!!....Please go back to the drawing board & fix or find another style from a different vendor....Sorry llbean can't give more than a star....try again.

I typically wear a 9.5-10 regular (not wide width) in shoes. I had gotten these in a 9.5 regular in the teal color. It is a little tighter than typical around the toe area, and I actually got blisters within an hour of wear through my socks on my toes. I think there was a seam right over my toes that kind of rubbed on them poorly. I may have been better off with these in a wide size, but they don't offer a wide width in these shoes. It's too bad because they are super cute otherwise! I loved the teal color and overall look of the shoes. It wasn't too bright at all, and looked great with some jeans!
However, because of the tightness of the toe area, I ended up returning them. The length was spot on with the 9.5- I had about a finger between my big toe and the end of the shoe when standing. I love the look, I just wish they were a bit wider!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shandy66 A Very Comfortable Shoe & Alternative to Sneakers
The Beansport Casual shoes are a great alternative to sneakers. They are soft and comfortable with a good arch support. I initially purchased these in the Gunsmoke color and I am coming back this year to get them in the dark purple color. They wear well and have the rubberized soles and added rubber on the sides and toe area for easy cleaning, and in case of rain or mud. There is a problem with the sizing, and this is the reason I only gave them 4 stars. I normally wear an 8 Wide and had to go up two sizes to a size 9 get the correct fit! This is a great shoe however, and I hope to see it in more colors!

As a retiree it is often hard to find cute age appropriate comfortable shoes. These fit the bill perfectly. I love my red ones and get so many comments on them. I was disappointed that L.L. Bean no longer has the shale gray in stock. I sincerely hope they are able to get many more of these shoes so I can order another pair. From reading the reviews, it looks like others are also wishing for these shoes to come back in stock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beanlover54 Too narrow for me
At the age of 60, I find it very difficult to find casual, yet not sneakers, shoes that fit comfortably. These are so cute, and have good cushioning, but are just too narrow for my poor feet. They will be gifted to my sister, who fortunately, wears the same size shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by favoriteshoes Very comfortable
Love these shoes, bought them in teal blue, get many complements and question of where I bought them. My only problem is that I would love a red pair and they are not in sock in my size. Hope LL Bean brings them back in the spring/summer season.

I can wear these shoes all day for working and shopping. They are so comfortable. Feet and legs do not feel tired. Would purchase more of these in different colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ruralmom Love these shoes!
I bought these back in October. I have worn them 2-3 times a week since then, and they still look band new! I love the color selections, so hard to choose. If they go on sale again I am definitely buying another pair. I had to wear band-aids on my heels the first few times like another reviewer mentioned. That is the only drawback.
