áby candies1 Good Shoe with poor Bungee cord closure
Well, this is the third pair of shoes I bought for my daughter (or fourth?) to wear to school , and I keep coming back every year to buy the exact same shoes in same color (lake blue -every school year my daughter asks for the same color, same shoes !!!) . The shoe itself is excellent and will hold up very well even after every school day usage for over a year , after which the kids will outgrow the size, the bungee cord quality has come down so much that this year I am contemplating whether to buy again or not.
The customer service deserves a five star rating as I have returned a pair already for the same bungee cord fraying problem , and the new pair that I received held up well for about two months before the bungee cord gave up. The shoe is perfectly fine , so I went ahead and ordered replacement bungee cord lace and waiting to see how that works once I put it on.
LLBean, please bring back your old bungee cord style for these shoes as we never had any fraying problem with those cords. Thank you! I have attached a picture of my kid's shoes and both have frayed cords. My child says she always pulls the cord parallel to the shoes and not in 90 degree angle (as the LLBean customer rep asked us to use it that way and see how it goes) but still we have the same problem with the new pair as well.

Rated 2 out of 5áby ezcheez Quality Has Gone Way Down
I bought these in a size 3 in 2011, and my daughter literally wore them EVERY day. After an entire school year, they showed nearly no sign of wear, not even on the sole or toe. I washed them a few times, even, and they still looked SO good. Even my daughter kept taking about how grateful she was that her shoes looked so good!
So, in 2012 I bought the size 4 for her, and the size 13 for my younger daughter.
I am so disappointed with these shoes, compared to the first ones we had. First, the material on the toes wore off after the first wear, making them look used and junky from the get-go. My girls were disappointed that their new shoes looked bad, so they didn't wear them that much. Even so, the mesh fabric has worn and pilled in a way that the other pair did not.
Now, I'm considering which kid's shoes to buy for 2013. Although I adored our first pair, I doubt that I will buy kids mocs from LL Bean again. If I wanted shoes that the toes wore off of, I'd pay way less at some discount store...

Rated 5 out of 5áby Oconotravel Love so much bought again
I bought these to go on vacation and because she needed some new hikers. We happen to be in Maine at Acadia National Park and she lost one shoe into the ocean. Funny. I always wondered where and how these things happened. Well now I know! So if anyone comes across a right foot size 4 of these, on the eastern seaboard, you will know where it came from.
I am buying another set because she loved them, and she is picky about the fit of her shoes. She has a wide foot, but not wide enough to buy WIDE, so I look for shoes that aren't narrow. These fit great.
Will definitely shop here again for shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cossondra Cute and practical
My granddaughter loves these! They do run a little small so order up a size. The brown trimmed in pink satisfied her love of PINK anything, but the brown made them much more practical sneakers than light pink.Very sturdy shoes. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JulieAnn627 lasted entire school year
These Mountain Comfort Mocs are the first pair of shoes that my 9 yr-old daughter has ever had which lasted her the entire school year. She wore them every day including for gym class. She has never complained of sore spots, and loves that they slip on. Her school has a paved playground which is very tough on the shoes and normally she needs a new pair of shoes every 3 months or so. The only part of the shoe that is wearing out are the cloth loops which hold the bungee laces. I will be buying her another pair for the coming year!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Denver6 Very Comfortable
Excellent shoe! Very comfortable, and easy to get on. Rugged, but very stylish. My daughter has the pink ones, and just loves them. She prefers over sneakers. True to size.
I am very happy with them and will also order the next size up, so she has another pair for next year.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Fugalbuyer Comfort Mocs
The sneaker like Moca are comfotable to wear with decent tractions. I would have given a 5 star rating except the Mocs' stitches on the front area shows some signs of tear only after a month of normal use; walking & playing on the Playground. No Hiking.

Rated 1 out of 5áby TetonShopper Material peeling after first wearing
Very disappointed in the quality of these shoes. Material above toe peeled after first wearing. This was a reorder from the same product as my little one had outgrown the first pair. Did not expect this poor quality from an L.L.Bean product. Returning shoes and will have to look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5áby conifermama Great shoes!
My 9 year old daughter is on her second pair of these shoes. She wears clothes and shoes HARD, so she rarely grows out of things before they fall apart. These shoes are the exception. She wears them most of the time all year long. I'd love to see LLBean change the color ways of these shoes up a bit, though.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ColoradoFamily Amazing value and comfort!
Our daughter just loves these. She's worn them for a year now and they still look new (she usually rubs a hole in the toe of her shoes)! I love that they are slip on and the brown color is great because it shows no dirt. Used the size chart and they fit true to that size. Coming back to buy another pair!
