Rated 3 out of 5 by Orenthal mixed review
These shoes are nice but arrived damaged. After trying them on, and imagining past the damage, I found that there wasn't enough arch support for my foot. I would need to put new insoles in them to alleviate that problem. Nice shoes, made well and great for the right person.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VeggieBeaner Very comfortable, but...
These shoes are nice looking and quite comfortable. I did have to break them in for about a week before my legs quite aching, though. However, after wearing them three times a week for about four months the lugs on the sole of the right shoe have started just breaking off. I've not subjected these shoes to intense running or walking, nor to any kind of chemical or harsh substances. Just one day I was sitting down and felt something under my foot. When I investigated, it was one of the lugs that had partly broken off and was flopping around. After that, several more have done the same thing. At the rate the sole is deteriorating, I will need a new pair of shoes by the end of the year. Maybe that was the intention all along. I'm quite disappointed since L.L. Bean has always meant quality to me. If you can't trust L.L. Bean, who can you trust?

Rated 5 out of 5 by PugHippie Great sneakers for problem feet
These sneakers are great for keeping my chronic plantar fasciitis in check. The ghost sneakers in general have great support, stability and motion control. I wear the goretex ones during winter as they're a bit warmer than the non goretex model and they're waterproof. Other reviewers had issue with the color, but it's fine with me as I love purple. I'd prefer the all black version that Brooks did with their previous goretex ghost sneakers.

On my third pair of this shoe. Really comfortable and supportive yet not heavy. I need the GoreTex lining because I go out for my runs early in the am when the grass is still wet.

I have worn Brooks for a number of years and this is the first time I have been disappointed. Even with thick socks, there is a lot of sloshing. And let's face it, during the summer months who wants to wear a super-thick sock? I am returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seababy4 Best Walking Shoes for Me
I bought these to wear as walking shoes and they are great. They are so well padded that I can walk without pain (have a metatarsal problem). Since I walk in wet weather, the waterproofing is a nice bonus. Hope L.L. Bean keeps this brand.

Shoes fit great, true to size and very light weight. In tennis shoes I have work 8 or 8 1/2. I ordered an 8 and they fit perfect.
