Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Comfortable Right Out Of Box
As others have noted, these shoes are comfortable right out of the box, and do not require an "break in" time. I have a difficult time finding shoes that are comfortable, so I am very pleased with these, esp for such a reasonable price. They look great with pants and jeans.
After reading reviews here I ordered a 1/2 size larger than normal. My regular size probably would have fit me better, these are a little too large. I put inserts in both the sole and heel to tightened them up a bit. Based on my experience, I'd suggest you order your normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedM I love these shoes!
I ordered these shoes in red leather in my true size, 8 1/2. My feet are average width. I love them! And I have a lot of trouble finding comfortable shoes. They are so cute and comfy, right out of the box! The toe box was a bit snug at first, but after a day of wear, they softened and they're incredibly comfortable. I work in retail, so I wore them while on my feet all day at work, and they are so great! After that one day of wearing, I ordered another pair in the blue suede because I love them so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GRCY Perfect flat shoes
I bought these (in black) to take on a transAtlantic cruise, and they were great. I wore them with skirts and capris to dinner almost every night, and they looked equally good with both. They were not comfortable to wear barefoot, as the inside stitching rubbed, but were perfect with tights or trouser socks. Sizing is true. The nonskid sole was great aboard ship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanieFromOhio Love, love, love these shoes!
Normally I must buy a wide shoe, so I am always hesitant to buy a medium width shoe online. I purchased these and had no trouble at all with them right out of the box! They seem to stretch just a tad and are very, very comfortable. My normal size is a 6 1/2 wide, but I bought a 7M since other reviewers said they ran about a half size small. I think I could have even worn a 7 1/2 with no problems. The red is a gorgeous color and I'll probably buy more when they are on sale again and have additional colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by narnia Love these shoes!
These shoes are very light. They're very comfortable right out of the box with no break-in required. The arch support is nice, and the lining is smooth so you can wear them without socks. The fabric binding around the shoe is stretchy and doesn't pinch. The toe box provides enough room. I ordered my regular size so I'm not sure why other reviewers stated they ran small. I'm very happy with my purchase, and will order another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by homersmom A good shoe
I ordered a half size up, 9 1/2, based on other reviews and they fit just right. I bought black and then liked them SO well, I ordered the same in tan nubuck. They are comfortable for a day's shopping, with an arch support that I need. they are cute and classic and go with a variety of clothes. Made in Brazil.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CoastalLLBeaner Order WHOLE size up
These skimmers are definitely cute and cumfy but ordering 1/2 size up as recommended by LL Bean and other reviewers was still not adequate. I had to return and order another 1/2 size larger. The toe box is snug on these flats but even at the larger size the heel fit remained fine due to the very stretchy edging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MireilleB sooo cute and comfy
I almost didn't order these shoes due to the negative reviews. I think these little shoes are very comfortable and very cute. I have wide feet, but usually wear a 6 B or 6 1/2 B. Since reviews seem to indicate it was a narrow shoe, I ordered the 6 1/2 B. What a surprise, although they are on the narrow side, they fit my wide feet perfectly. With most narrow shoes I can't get my feet in the shoe or get blisters within minutes of wearing them. Not so with these shoes.
They are very well made, with nice soft leather, and the elastic around the top is very comfortable because at the heel it is not elastic but a piece of leather. I have bought shoes that had elastic all the way around and at the heel I kept getting blisters so can't wear them. Nice touch LL Bean.
I recommend these shoes. Not too sure why all the negative reviews. I'm quite picky about my shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmamarie very very comfortable
I have had trouble in the past getting the right fit, but these fit perfectly & are soft & comfortable right away -- no "break in" with these shoes. I ordered my regular size in red (which I consider a neutral color that goes with just about everything) & am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deddle sooo comfty and pretty
I bought these in red and black at great sale price for the day.
I was a little worried, because I have a BUNION on both feet.
These shoes have a STRETCHY band around the shoe, attached to the SOFT leather.
I did order up a half size, glad I did. I can wear these shopping all day with a nylon footie.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes. No pain!!!
The color red and black are really pretty, the white band around the heel is a fun touch.
If you have any size bunion problem, try these shoes. You will love them also, like me. 2012
