Rated 3 out of 5 by MrBoot Well made boot, but the fit won't be for everyone
After being told that the Gumshoe Boot wasn't even available on backorder, the customer service rep suggested the Rubber Moc as an alternative. I've wanted a pair of Bean Boots for slushy winter days for awhile so I figured I'd give them a shot. I normally wear a size 10 shoe, so my foot fit perfectly in a size 9 (medium) boot since I knew I'd only be wearing them with regular socks. I made sure all the laces were snug and went for a trek around my house to see how they feel. UNFORTUNATELY...my heel immediately started sliding out of the boot with every step I took. I understand this is supposed to be a slip-on shoe, but if I did anything faster than a steady walk, these would surely fly off my feet. Plus the back of my ankle would eventually get chewed up from being continuously rubbed by the boot. I strongly suggest getting the gumshoe if you want a shorter boot that fits securely on your foot (hopefully it comes back one of these days). LL Bean customer service/return policy was excellent as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RinCO Great Slip-On Boots!
I was a little nervous after reading all of the comments pertaining to the over-sizing of the boots. I wear a 9 to a 9 1/2 shoe depending on the brand in a D width. I also have a high arch. I decided to take a chance and go with a size 8 in D width, it fit PERFECTLY!

Great fit and durability. I wear these boots while doing gardening, doing dirty handy work around the house, and out in the snow and rain. They are holding up superbly & all dirt washes off. The shoe look fantastic even after all these years. I wish I got the one filled with the fury stuff. Order 1/2 size down for a good fit. I got wide feet and the wide fits nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by willplus2 Use the leather tie to tighen if boot is loose
The rule of order down for half sizes is correct-- but in my case the boot was still loose - I discovered that the leather tie can be tightened - and what a difference - all the looseness is gone - the boots feel like a regular shoe---- a helpful hints that should be added to the rule of 1/2 sizes

Though sturdily built, the actual size is easily one size greater than advertised. Whoever designed the lacing system must have been on dope, which makes them uncomfortable to wear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SFLA Rubber Moc Review
When ordering these shoes I read many reviews complaining about the sizing running too large. I wear a 12 M LLBean hiking boot as well as a 12 M running shoe. I ordered the 11 based on the websites recommendation of 1 size smaller. These were huge. I could fit two fingers behind my heal.
I ordered a 10M and it is still a little large. They are ok for walking in the yard, but you could not walk any distance in them. I returned the first pair. While the website says Free Shipping, I had to pay to return the first pair that were too large.
I will not buy shoes online from LL Bean again. The quality is there, but the sizing at least for this shoe is out of scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerrarrd Great product. Amazing customer service.
I decided to get my first ll bean mocs and pleased with what I got. I usually wear size 9.5-10 shoes so I got a size 9, as per insturctions of the website. When it came (fast delivery!), tried it on and my ankle was slipping out when I walk. I'm planning to use only light/medium wt socks so I called for a replacement, maybe 2 sizes smaller than my normal shoe size. (corteous operator!). In 2 days, I got my size 8 and it fits perfectly!
If you will be wearing light/medium wt socks, consider buying 2 sizes smaller than your normal shoe size. It worked for me.

The best of the best is right here. I read some of the reviews and downsized. They have very ample toe space - I can wear a heavy sock if necessary. After reading the reviews, regarding the heal area being wide and slips, I found that tightening up the laces works extremely well. My pair of Mocs now perfectly fit and actually mold to my foot.
I use them for everything - walking in the morning dew, gardening, etc.
Great price for a quality item. Don't hesitate to buy these !

Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmerontheHill Comfortable,easy on,off,great for morning chores!
Very Comfortable boots right out of the box.Ordered one size smaller than my usual size which is a ten so ordered a nine perfect fit.Never wore this brand boot before but have worn this style and cheaper versions of this boot for years for doing morning chores around the farm but none ever fit this good right out of the box so what I am thinking is that with the quality and workmanship of this boot I am going to be well satisfied.
