Rated 4 out of 5 by gptraveler Nice but a bit narrow
I buy my shoes size 7 if they are not available in wide. I buy 6 1/2 if they are available in wide. These are a bit narrower than I like in a wide shoe. The right foot is pinching on the outside of the toe on one foot. The comfortable toe box is important to me as a type 2 diabetic but I am keeping these in hopes that they will stretch a bit. A size 7 would be too long and I would trip! Well made though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Switch NOT a truly wide shoe
Attractive shoe, yes. Wide shoe? Not really. I followed the advice of other reviewers who suggested a half size up. Toes were still squished. Width of toe box felt more like a standard "B" width and toe area was just a bit pointier than I'd like in a hiking boot. Heel fit very well. Not very good arch support, either. On this particular model I found the ankle collar too high, as if the boot cannot decide if it is low or mid-cut. My gut tells me the collar would create blisters on or near my ankle bone.
When I asked if the Cresta full hiking boot was wider I was told they were made on the same last and had the same width as this low hiker - which at least saved me ordering another shoe to reject. Adding a EE width for a couple of the boots models would be a great thing, LL Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mom2dog One Problem
I only had one issue with this shoe. It was cut too high on the side, and my ankle bone rubbed on the side of the shoe. I could tell this was going to be a problem as soon as I tried the shoe on, so back it went. Other than that, it appeared to be a well made shoe. True to size, also.

So far I have only worn them on dry pavement and they are very comfortable. I will need to wear them in puddles to see how waterproof they are.l

Rated 4 out of 5 by karylc a little narrow
I just ordered the 1/2 size larger shoe because even in the D width, they are still a bit snug. I have pretty wide feet and it's hard to find shoes that really fit. And they were just a little tight around the end of the toes. Whatever your normal shoe size is and your feet need a wider width, go with a slightly larger size.
I hesitated to wear them too much till I could see if the larger size would fit better. But they did feel pretty good when I had them on,. Sometimes if shoes don't have good enough foot support they make my back hurt, and I have to use different insoles. These did not do that, yeah!
If this review changes, I will see if I can add another one. But so far, they were ok.

My boots arrived today and I am so excited that I actually found a pair of hiking boots that fit my size 9.5 wide feet!! I ordered a 10 wide and they fit really well with room for thicker socks.
These boots are so comfortable; I wore them inside the house all evening. I can't wait to wear them this weekend at Cub Scout camp and experience dry feet all weekend long. Thanks!!

I purchased these waterproof shoes for light hiking with my dog. They perform exactly as expected. They have good traction and keep my feet dry when walking through wet grass. They are very comfortable with plenty of toe room. Love them !

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappycamperinBoston Great Walking Hiking Shoes!
I made the trip to the Mansfield store and had the help of "Gary" who knew the inventory inside and out! I wanted a shoe that wasn't too heavy, too high, too flexible or too warm. Oh, did I mention water proof would be nice too?
Gary walked right over to this shoe, picked it up, handed it to me and said this is the right shoe. He pulled my size, I put them on- he was right- they were perfect! A shout out to Gary in the Mansfield store- he's the best! I have been wearing the shoes daily for two full weeks with no regrets! I suffer from neuropathy in my right foot and all walking shoes have had issues for me- all EXCEPT these! I'm getting a second pair- I'm going back to Mansfield to buy them from Gary!
Great shoes & Great Price! Thank you Gary in Mansfield and LLBean!
