Rated 5 out of 5 by MomWrkz Nice!
I was on the hunt for a sturdy shoe that was comfortable...the minute I took them out of the box, I put my feet in them - SO NICE! I immediately phoned my sister and told her she had to get a pair, too. They look a bit like boots, but they are quite comfortable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MusicGirl68 Nice shoe
I wear a 10-narrow and these shoes fit me well. Maybe a little roomy over the top of the foot, but not a big deal. It's a good looking shoe and I like the two different sets of laces.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WendyLee123 Disappointed that shoes are narrow
I had scanned through the reviews before ordering and noted some comments about the narrow size, but I thought I would give the shoes a try anyway. Unfortunately, I found the shoes to be narrow, but aside from that, the shoes are wonderful in terms of how light, comfortable, and well-constructed they are. I will be returning the shoes I ordered, but would strongly request to LLBean that they make the shoe available in wide sizes. If wide sizes were to be available, I'd re-purchase these shoes in a heartbeat!

Loved my new shoes. In between 8-81/2 ordered the 8 and fit perfectly. Ordered the green and they are so pretty, the style makes your foot not appear big. comfortable, lightweight and stylish. Ready to order another in different color. Definite thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LikeorNot Love these!
I don't write reviews, but just had to this time. Was going on a 5 day trip with a lot of walking/hiking. Didn't really want to bring sneakers or my heavier hiking shoes. Looking for something a bit more stylish. These fit the bill! Wore them during the entire trip and they were so comfortable! I'll be wearing these a lot!

Appearance - so, the pictures on the website do not fully showcase the shoe very well. I am an avid Keen wearer & thought that the pictures on the website featured a more rounded front to the shoe which I thought added to the attractiveness of them.
Once I received them, I was a bit disappointed at the fact that they were more pointy than i expected.. But that is just appearances.
The Feel - the shoes is surprisingly light weight and soft. A big plus, this almost made up for them being being so pointy.
The Comfort - aaah yes!!! LL Bean, you got me! This shoes are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, they are up there with my Keens and that is a high compliment.
It's the comfort of a tennis shoe.
Plenty of arch support with a very cushiony sole.
I quickly got over their pointy face, I love them now!!
Quality/Price - they are worth the $69 I paid for, they are a great quality product and will last me a long time.
The Compliments - I am Seattle Seahawks fan and the green shoes compliment my teams colors. This is just icing on the cake. I would order the blue ones too but they are not available in my size 8.5B -boo hoo!
I wore them for the first time today and I kid you not, I was asked by 6 different people where I got them. I told them from the Bean, LL Bean ?
Feedback for the Bean - make sure your photographers do a better job of showcasing merchandise like shoes because they didn't that good of a job on this pair. Nobody wants to buy online to later have to ship back even if the shipping is free. Kapish!
I thought about a 4 star rating but that would have been because of the picture issue, the shoes are better than expected so 5 stars from me?

This is the second pair of these shoes that I have from LL Bean. Was so disappointed that the color I wanted wasn't available (teal). So I ordered the Sunsmoke. Got lots of mileage from the first pair, comfortable to the end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShoppingGuru Too narrow for me
I like the look of the shoe, but as soon as I tried them on, I knew they were too narrow in the toe area for me. I would like to see these in a wide width. I would recommend these shoes if you are looking for a narrow width shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hoosierwelshcobs pretty style but falls FLAT
nice idea, a dressy athletic shoe, but stops there, NO ARCH SUPPORT, soles too thin, not for anyone who is on their feet :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by filumena2 Poor shoe......
Forget that I waited over 3 months for the Beansport casual shoe in gunsmoke to arrive...114 days to be exact!...The shoe, or sneaker as I would call them, is not at all like the photo. Perhaps if the shoe or sneaker were shown at many different angles a person might get a better idea of just how the shoe or sneaker might look on. You can't really tell in the photo!...With shoe or sneaker in hand.....The toe box starts off narrow and widens out, sort of going to a point, Quite noticeable when it is finally laced up. Hence a narrow toe box. But the biggest problem with these shoes or sneakers is that they are poorly designed or put together. The flap for the tongue of the shoe or sneaker is not properly affixed or sewn, to at least the left shoe or sneaker in my case, causing a bump on top of my instep. Is this how they are all made or is this defect just unique to my order? Not Good!!....Please go back to the drawing board & fix or find another style from a different vendor....Sorry llbean can't give more than a star....try again.
