Rated 2 out of 5 by MilfordMichigan Wide width is all that wide...
I wear a wide width shoe. My daughter is quite slender and wears a narrow shoe. But we both wear a women's size 8. My shoes just arrived and I felt like they were not wide enough. She tried them on and agreed. She said they would fit her just fine but felt they were longer than they were wide. LL Bean women's shoe stock is quite limited as many of the styles are "sold out." Overall disappointed with the selection and availability. Shipping is excellent, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by northbass Love them.
I found these on sale in ember and have to say the color is brighter in person than it looks on line. However I love the shade, the looks, the comfort and support of the shoe. Personally not a fan of the newer colors of the shoe being offered but have to say if it appeals to you then the shoe itself is great, and true to size for me. In fact I like these better than my top-siders. Please Bean bring some more colors to the table...

These shoes are great. The innersole is good but for me too wide. I ahve a narrow foot. It thought I could tighten the laces and get them to work but was wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bow19 Super Comfortable shoe
I normally buy Sperry brand shoes and they are a tried and true, 'great shoe'. These LLBean shoes are all the Sperry's offer and more. Super cushioning and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyiousl Very comfortable, right color and size
Never buy shoes online, because I have bunions: hence the need to try on shoes before purchasing. Most of the time my size is never available. That said, ordering from LL Bean was an answer to being able to purchase these boat shoes in a hard to find size and the color blue I wanted. Win, win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtCatNightOwl Comfortable and nice summer color.
These shoes are very comfortable. I normally wear 7.5 in another popular brand of boat shoe and 8 in athletic and other shoes. I ordered size 8 based on customer service recommendations to order my "normal size" and they fit great right out of the box. It is hard for me to find comfortable shoes and need good arch support. These worked great. I liked the ember color, too. Pairs well with island blues for the summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LIBBIE Laces - are inferior
My 2nd day wearing these, the Lace broke on one of the shoes - no problem I say - i will just readjust the length by feeding it. No such luck - as the laces are sewn on the back side of the shoe - so.
You can't adjust the length, you can't replace the lace - I'm returning them - and getting my top siders.
The size, style, arch support, all were great - your designer/engineer did not think it through.
Hope you fix the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEsquare Just Right
Since I find athletic shoes are uncomfortably hot, I was looking for a go-to shoe for the summer. I started out ordering this boat shoe a larger size than my usual, as I wanted to use an orthotic and have had to order a half size larger with shoes from other stores. After several tries, it turns out I didn't need to do that. Therefore I would say this shoe runs a tiny bit big. I wear an 8.5 medium and have a very high arch. The shoes are cute and out-of-the-box comfortable and I expect they will get plenty of use this summer. Although I was looking for a darker blue, smooth leather, this lighter blue is attractive, the suede-like leather is soft, and the color will go with my wardrobe.
