Rated 4 out of 5 by hockeymom56 Cute and comfortable but....
I bought these shoes last January at an LL Bean store. i always wear an 8 shoe, but I had to buy these in an 8.5 so they run small. I have worn them for about 6 months and they still look like new on the outside. But as another reviewer stated: the lining isn't as sturdy as the shoe. The lining has worn through on the heel. I have repaired it temporarily but this should not have happened with so little wear. I get many compliments when wearing these shoes and they are certainly comfortable. However, they are not up to Bean's usual high quality and durability. They are definitely a winter shoe and are good to wear when it's snowy and slushy.

I bought these shoes for both their style & comfort. They are great in both categories. Used them for a ton of walking on a trip (good on cobblestone streets) with excellent results. As far as style goes, get them in a fun color -- even my 26 year old daughter thinks they're cute; got them in the purple color, but green would be good too. I wear them around town all the time now. A good all around shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatJ61 I now own four pairs
I love these shoes. I started out with the purple, and then graduated to red, tan, and blue. I have relatively wide feet. Sometimes I wear a wide width and sometimes I wear a B width that is generously cut. These fit just fine. I wouldn't wear them for hiking because they don't have a thick sole, but for everyday wear they are super cute and comfortable. I get many compliments on them. They are dressier than a sneaker, but more casual than a dress shoe-- perfect!

I wanted to love these shoes because they seemed to be a great all purpose comfy shoe. ANYTHING BUT! Its like wearing a hard box on your foot. No support under your foot or around your ankle..at all........they hurt to wear. Had to return them, and recover from wearing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MKEwalker just one flaw
These are comfortable, attractive shoes. There's just one flaw, though: the lining isn't as sturdy as the rest of the shoe, and wears through at the heel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beansnob too narrow
I really liked the style but when I got them, I was disappointed on how narrow they were. I wear a 7 1/2 med which is what I ordered. I have to return them because of width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mhowland simply great shoe
Two months ago I was shopping for a shoe to take on a three country European trip. We didn't plan any extensive hiking but we did plan playing with grandchildren in various settings including Baltic beaches, museum visiting, roaming the Highlands of Scotland, and a bit of shopping. I found these shoes in the Bean store in Colonie NY a week or so before we left. They fit and felt good so I took them home, tried them and wore them---every day, all day, for the next month. I am still wearing them, just ordered a second pair, and not only do they still feel great, they still look new. And I have never had so many compliments on my shoes! Like another reviewer, I am a Keen enthusiast and was looking for Keens when I found these. The price is amazing, the fit, for me, perfect. And by the way, I have fairly severe osteo arthritis and my feet don't hurt at all in the shoes. Thank you, Bean!

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!
