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!

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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fishook28 Very comfortable - with band aids
I agree with other reviewers that the design of the heel on these is off. I wear band-aids on my heels and these feel like the most comfortable shoes. This is not a bad review. I recommend them, with a caveat. Do not expect to be able to wear these without a band-aid or something else (besides just socks) to protect your heel.
Also, these look nice with pants/jeans. I can wear them on casual work days and not feel too casual. The cut on the arch is so narrow that these look a bit puffy around the bridge of my foot. This is completely masked with pants but might look a little funny if I wear these with shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnAlaskan Great Shoes but ...
These are very comfortable to wear. But my foot has a wide toe box and these angle in too soon. I have worn them a lot, but people have commented that they look too small. They aren't, they are pretty true to size, but the toe is narrow. That is the only reason I would not buy a second pair. Keen shoes generally fit me better because of their wider toe box. Other L.L. Bean shoes fit me well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tdean Comfortable right out of the box
These shoes are light weight and, for me, have moderate arch support. They are perfect for walking out in the rain or slushy snow. I bought the deep red, I would love to see these for sale again in the black and light brown colors! I wear a 7 1/2 size and bought the 7 1/2 medium, they are true to size. I wear light weight socks with them.

I first got a pair in the "gunsmoke" color. I loved them so much that I decided to get the red ones too. They are so comfortable and perfect with jeans, or a casual outfit. I have received lots of compliments on them. I love them!
