Rated 5 out of 5 by CatsDogsHorses Summer comfort
I received these today and haven't taken them off since I opened the package. The padding in the foot bed makes them very comfortable. They do run large. Order a 1/2 size down. I generally wear a 7 1/2 or 8. I returned the 8 and now am wearing the 7 1/2. It's still loose although I don't step out of it since the top of the shoe extends fairly far back over the foot. I think the 7 would be too small. It's a great summer shoe. Don't hesitate to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 great.......
Got a 2nd pr. of these in a solid color. The other pr. I got was the plaid. The solid color is more like a canvas sneaker type fabric vs. a plaid plain type cotton fabric. So if you're looking for that, then this is great! I DO LOVE the Solid color ones as well as the plaid that I got. They are equally as comfortable and nice on your feet. I wore mine all day at work, wearing them for 8 hr. and being on my feet. I know sometimes you get a 2nd pr. of the same shoes and they can be different. The only thing different between these and the plaid is the type of fabric. I love the aqua colored and it goes w/my LL Bean aqua color sweater and my aqua colored belt. I would Definitely recommend these to another! They even wash nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by annie2611 Espadrille shoes
I ordered these in blue and after wearing them once i came straight to the computer to order them in cream. I love, love,love these shoes. I have loads of shoes that I buy thinking they are comfy and after one wear they stay in my closet , especially summer ones as my feet swell and burn when it's hot. These, because they are a little bit loose I can wear all day. As they are high in the front don't slop off my feet though. I am thinking of ordering in other colours before they sell out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by historian look nice, fit a little loose in width
I ordered a pair (nut brown) and have had them for a couple of months. Nice color that goes with a lot of other colors. Look very nice with capris. Nice sole and comfortable, overall. Appear to be durable. I am a true size 10, and I have worn these espadrilles with thin, no-show foot covers (i.e., not true socks), and these shoes are a little loose, mostly in the width, but maybe a tiny bit long, too. An insole might help. Anyway, I have mostly gotten used to the loose fit and they are not bad. I'm not sure I would buy a second pair (as I prefer a snugger fit), but I would recommend to a friend but also point out the looser fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sportsenthusiast Great fit
I ordered these shoes in the spring and have hardly had them off.
They are very comfortable. Although some reviews said did not run true to size and to order smaller, I could not as wear 6 and that is the smallest. The sizing was perfect. They are just good all round shoes and are my favorite summer shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 My first pr. of Espadrille shoes......
But........NOT my last!(But only IF I got them from LL Bean!!!) I've seen others where there's no innersole so they've been uncomfortable when I've tried them on. These have a nice cushion on the inside of the bottom. They're very comfortable.......tho they do run wide and a tad longer. I take between a 91/2 and 10. I got the 10, as I prefer a bigger shoe then a tight one. I can always wear sox w/them if they run big. And these do! The plaid is VERY attractive I will admit~NICE colors in them, red, a hint of blue and the green. I wore them to work today where I'm on my feet the whole time I'm in work. I had NO issues w/the comfort! I could've kept these on my feet for even longer!!! They are THAT comfortable! I'd Definitely recommend these to ANY who desires a comfortable shoe that is VERY attractive looking on your feet!

Nice shoe overall. Some padding makes it more comfortable that a typical espadrille. Slightly loose. Cute styling.
Inner gore of elastic between front and back on inner shoe is too loose and depending on the lean of your foot will bulge out and be noticeable when it's supposed to be hidden. Many people might not care about this, it is a very small part that shows. Won't show at all if your foot leans outward instead of in.
Disappointing, 3 of the 6 colors shown (Sage, Nut Brown, Coral) are striated in the photo. There is a very clear design of striations of color winding across the entire shoe. In the Sage which I ordered, you can see the picture clearly has dark green to light in varying strips or whatever you would call it.
I get the shoe, and it's like they used an entirely different fabric. I guess the photos are from some other model or year of espadrilles. They cannot be the same shoes sold as photographed, they are entirely different in coloring.
That striated (variegated) color is what I liked about these espadrilles. Subtle but interesting. But mine are plain sage with tiny white specks. I am returning them, sorry to say.

LL Bean's Espadrille has many features and benefits. Rubber sole for traction, rope trim around the sole and canvas upper provide the Espadrille look, padded insole ensures comfort and the hidden elastic makes for an easy on and off. I chose the linen color to go with everything. Recently I've been wearing them barefoot with jeans and find them true to size. I highly recommend and the price is right!

Rated 2 out of 5 by travellllller I returned them
Based on other reviews I went ahead and ordered my true size since they said that they ran wide. I was able to get my foot into them and the length was fine- and the width wasn't terrible- but it wasn't super wide- I found parts of it to be narrow. I had to return them because the sharp corners of the material stabbed into both of my feet and hurt a lot- and they were very tight across the top of my foot. I did not find them flattering at all. There was also quite a bit of random glue on the sides of the sole. I immediately put them back into the box and returned them to the UPS store a few hours later. I will not attempt to buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gbee Great shoe for spring!
Based on the reviews that I read, I knew to order a half size smaller. I couldn't be more pleased with my new shoes for spring because they fit perfectly and go with lots of outfits! They are comfy and easy to get on! They fit just like my slip on Merrell shoes. I can wear them all day while teaching my first graders! You should get them, too, before they sell out! You won't be disappointed!
