Rated 5 out of 5áby Tripalan Exceptional experience
These sandals are comfortable and easy to slip on and off. I wear them throughout the day and in all types of outdoor weather conditions. Further, the first pair I received a small part of the stitching began to fray the end of the first year of ownership. I called a LL Bean rep and he told me to send the back - no questions asked and, true to their promise, a great return program. I received a replacement pair within days. I gave 5-stars for this product AND the return service policy and execution.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BikeProf A good fit
I am on my second pair of these sandals because they fit my C-width foot perfectly and have good arch support. The only flaw is that the sole isn't as durable as I would like.

This is my 3rd pair and I hardly wear anything else. They are great. I only wish they came in additional color choices.

Rated 2 out of 5áby jont change strap system
I purchased my first explorer sandals the first year they were available, and am still wearing them around the house and for short hikes. Great footwear! Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, the rear strap system was changed from elastic to an adjustable velcro system. Since then, I've purchased two pair and the strap system on each failed within a very short time (within days on the second pair!). The O-ring the strap passes through broke on the first pair, and the stitching securing the O-ring simply came apart on the second pair. But for the strapping system, these are excellent sandals, but until LL Bean returns to the original system (or something similar), I would not purchase another pair. Have to add that in each instance I returned the sandals to LL Bean, their Customer Service reps were sympathetic, helpful, and more than willing to send me a replacement (first pair) or a refund (second pair).

Although we live in Michigan my son wear's these sandals year round. They are very comfortable when worn with socks. He has smaller heels, so although the sandals are adjustable, the socks give it the extra cushion.

I have never been a big fan of sandals. My feet are smaller, and I have problems finding a sandal that gives me the stability and arch that I want. I recently ordered a pair of Explorer sandals. They fit my feet quite well, and are very comfortable with or without socks.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MrBoots02 Sandal with excellent foot support
This model is surprisingly comfortable with support and feel of a good cross trainer shoe. It is open and airy yet slightly hugs my feet just right. The rear Velcro heel straps allow for quick on and off, plus a small bungee cord that allows fine tuning of the fit.

Rated 5 out of 5áby upnorthwintergirl Comfortable sandals but run large as advertised.
Sandals are smart looking and well made. I bought these for my husband who says he loves them. His comments follow: He expects a long wear cycle. Suggests buying 1/2 size smaller than regular shoe size (as advertised). Velcro straps hold well - no need for frequent adjustment once sandals are worn a couple of times. Sole construction is heavy duty in appearance and takes on any type of surface (smooth or rough) with ease and comfort. Would recommend them to any of his friends, either old or young.

My husband likes the velcro closure and overall comfort of these sandals, especially the protection over the toes. The style allows you to easily adjust the width and the support is great. We found these sandals to be true to size.

These sandals are great! I have diabetes so my feet can be a problem when purchasing shoes. NO problem here....these sandals are comfortable and very easy on my feet. I will definitely purchase my third pair in the Spring.
