Rated 5 out of 5 by Beachman2 Great Shoes
When you first put these shoes on a little small. The more you wear them they loosen up and feel more comfortable as they break in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by leisurelife Love these boat shoes!
This is my husbands 4 th pair of these boat shoes. He has both the brown and dark brown. Wide fit is really a wide fit and is perfect. He loves the brown color best (personal preference :) He wears them for all occasions, except formal wear :)
A word of caution: puppies love to chew on these.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by ddev Nice comfortable shoe and gets better with wear
I took some comments about "too narrow" to heart and ordered with EEE. They were too loose and LL Bean (as expected) provided a rapid exch. replacement with std. 10. Fit perfectly. In fact, I'm back on the site now to order another pair for my 21 year old son who really liked the look and feel. I wear them w/o socks so your experience may be different re. sizing - but it's overall a quality shoe and very well cushioned - you'll like them. There was one small issue with an edge on the top of one foot - but that was a minor adjustment w/ a nail file. It's a good deal.

OK, so in the future I will read reviews before I order. Like several others mentioned, they run narrow. I am hoping they will stretch a little in time. As in everything I have ordered from LL Bean quality is excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ryams27 Comfortable shoe but disappointed in quality
Title says it all. These shoes are extremely comfortable -- probably the most comfortable shoe worn sockless I've ever owned. They also fit true to size and run ever-so-slightly narrow, which is perfect for my foot.
That said, I've been a little shocked/disappointed in the quality of the shoe. I have worn them less than 5 times total, but they recently got a little bit of water on them and now the tops of the toeboxes are much darker than the rest of the shoe. When I say a little bit of water, I mean a very little bit. I had to jog about 12 feet to my car in a light summer rain shower. I immediately wiped the moisture of the shoe, but it didn't matter. I understand that leather and water don't always mix, but one would think a boat shoe ("lakeside" no less) of all things would be better equipped to handle such a small amount of moisture.
Additionally, I've noticed where a piece of yellow plastic is emerging from one of the seams towards the back of the shoe (i.e., where the heel is sewn into the side).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlestonian Very comfortable
First I see no problem with the leather laces.
I have not been able to wear any shoes but mountain treads and cresta hikers for years because of knee and foot problems. I have had these shoes for over a month now and wear them for hours at a time. They are very comfortable and supportive. I can not recommend them highly enough. I like them so much I purchased a second pair. I have the two brownish tones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SkipperLou Not wide enough
I really like the quality of this shoe with the following points to think about.
1. The leather laces are nice however I found them too short to tie easily.
2. I ordered a 14 W and the width is not very wide. I will, like I have in the past, allow the leather to stretch out. So far, after several weeks and some mink oil, they are still tight.
Keeping these comments in mind the shoes are good quality and a good value.

these boat shoes are awesome! Extremely comfortable and a great casual look. I have a narrow foot and the regular width fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JaysonNYC Love these shoes
I bought these shoes back in the summer time then went on vacation and forgot all about writing my review! With that much time past I definitely can say they are excellent! I took them on vacation and did lots of walking and these shoes were perfect for the occasion. I have no complaints so far I am very glad I purchased these shoes. Would definitely recommend them!
