Rated 5 out of 5áby ShopperInCinci Great shoe IF you choose size wisely
I was skeptical after reading reviews on the narrow sizing, but at the incredible sale price, I took a chance on the 7 wide. They fit perfectly! Also, the first time I wore them, they felt as if I'd had them for a long time - no break-in period required.
I usually take a 6 1/2 in either a medium or wide width, depending on style. Wides usually don't work for me as they are too big in the heel area. I can sometimes take a 7 medium. This shoe in the 7 wide was perfect. The length was good and width comfortable. The narrowness worked for me as I only need the extra width in the ball of the foot. I look forward to wearing these with both jeans and business casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ElizHA Narrow!
Because my feet are very narrow I rarely consider LLBean shoes that only seem to come in B width. Based on reviews, I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. They fit like a glove - soft as kid gloves on my feet. I ordered 1/2 size longer too in order to wear with socks. Sure hope they don't stretch out too much and get sloppy.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LadyHiker101 Beautiful but too narrow for my especially wide 9D
They are beautiful. If you like the look of a dressy boat shoe, these fit the bill. I would have kept them in a snap if they had been a bit wider. The silver was already sold out in my size even before they came on line. I've seen them in person on someone else's feet and they are so gorgeous, very classy.

Rated 3 out of 5áby JoNews Shoes run EXTREMELY NARROW(!) and somewhat short
This review is for the solid color Northport boat shoes, although the sizing likely also applies to the multicolor. The good part is, the leather is buttery soft, and the Soft Sable Metallic color is lovely.
As to the rest:
Never in my life have I worn size Wide shoes, that is, until I tried on LLBean's Northport Boat Shoes. They are EXTREMELY NARROW. My normal foot size is 8Ż Medium. Occasionally, I wear a 9 Medium. In these Northport Boat Shoes, I required a 9 WIDE.
Also, the colors I really wanted, the Soft Sable Metallic and the blue/green/white multicolor, are not available in Size Wide.
To LLBean: you must have known these shoes ran Extremely Narrow, so why didn't you offer ALL the colors in Size Wide?

Rated 4 out of 5áby jlw518 Great shoes, but run narrow.
I have narrow feet, and usually medium width shoes are ok to a little wide on me. These are definitely narrow, as they fit me snugly in width even though they are sold as medium. They also are just a bit short...I take a true 9 1/2, and that size had my toes jammed right up against the front of the shoe. Instead, I got a 10, which fit me just about perfectly.
Other than that, the quality of the leather is beautiful, and they look great. Since I DO have skinny feet, these fit me like a glove, and are extremely comfortable, so I am very happy with them. However, if I had wide feet, they would not fit at all....

Rated 4 out of 5áby Hoopcat Narrow but nice!
Agree with others that these run very narrow. I thought I might have to bring them back, but after wearing several times they have stretched and are comfortable. Would get wide width next time. The leather is very soft, and they are not "clunky" looking like some of the other styles. The metallic color matches everything!

Rated 1 out of 5áby Kozie Beautiful Shoe, But
These shoes are lovely and look well made, but the minute I took one out of the box I knew it was way way too narrow. That's why I gave it a poor rating. I purchased the wide (my usual width) even after reading the review saying they were narrow thinking well... maybe. I was hoping.....But, I must return them. I'm sad about that :(.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Brooksie Fun Boat Shoes for Summer
I love the multi-color option in these new boat shoes. The leather is butter-soft. Easy to slip on and off. I have a narrow foot and these fit perfectly. These run true to size. I do not recommend for someone with a thick foot. These shoes are very comfortable, but they have minimal padding and support. Not for someone that needs extra cushioning and arch support.
