Rated 2 out of 5 by DT30030 Slippery Heel
Loved the shoes but didn't fit. The heels were too wide for my foot and therefore slipped so returned for refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanTheMan1 Nice product; great fit out of box
These are nice comfortable shoes righ tout of the box. The rubber soles are modestly aggressive but don't collect a lot of debris. The overall fit is accurate (for me, size 11.5M). Laces are also nice: round and substantial and not overly long. I also like that there is NOT an excessive amount of padding in the upper (a technique some poor fitting shoes seem to use to cover a poor fit) -- that is, they fit well because they are shaped nicely. They also offer good sole resistance to pointy rocks -- not like a mountain hiker would but MUCH better than a sneaker or most cross-trainers. The heel is not as pronounced as I like but it's adequate to prevent downhill slipping (just watch out for leaves!). All in alla very nice shoe that fits well, is comfortable out of the box and looks very good for casual wear, trail walking and maybe light hiking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ardi men's shoes
like stytle & fit well; early to say re comfort as the shoes are still stiff and not broken in; color of shoes not quite what I saw in Bean ad (gray at sides of soles and leather color more yellow than was apparent in ad; gray doesn't match the yellow-brown leather so much.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pochotriana A little too narrow
Beautiful and classy style. A tried them on and felt them a little too narrow with summer sucks so might not be good in winter. Sent the shoes back to exchange for wide ones even if my feet are not wide. Anyway comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holdenhunt Excellent shoe
I'm not a shoe horse. Liked these as soon as I saw them in the catalog. This shoe fits well, needs no break in, is comfortable and looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GettinOldFast nice look
Only worn a couple of times. I wear orthotics, so removed the insole, so I can't comment about fit -- it seems okay, maybe a tad small with original insoles. But it also might be a be a cushier feel with the original insoles.
A nice look -- good combination of function and style. But more of a casual outdoor shoe than a hiking shoe. Perfect for someone who spends his days walking around suburban landscapes, in all weather.
walked across a wet lawn, and feet did not get wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToniTheIslandHopper Good Lookin' and Comfortable from the First Moment
I bought the tan 8 1/2 medium size for my husband's 8 1/2 size feet and he found the shoes comfortable from the moment he put them on. It is very rare that he finds a shoe he likes the feel of immediately. It is a very handsome shoe that he is using for everyday wear. It is such a nice shoe that we are ordering a second pair right away in case they change vendors. This shoe is so good that if we decide to do a hike on the spur of the moment, my husband won't have to change shoes and we can be out the door in an instant.
