Rated 5 out of 5 by canadianlovesllbean Best ever
I had ordered the Keen Gypsum boots last February, wore them once and slipped on the ice and fell. I am only now going to be walking again and when I went to wear my boots they were tight.
I ordered the Durand to replace the Gypsum and I did order 1/2 size up. These are the best hiking shoes I have ever owned, seriously. If you have wide feet, these are for you. My toes have lots of room, they are so comfortable and I can hardly wait to start walking again. I will send the Gypsum back since they did not fit but the Durand's fit great on my feet. Thank you LLBean for getting the best quality shoes/boots and for all your clothing line. I so love LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NJHikers Awesome hiking shoe
I normally wear a size 8 - 8.5 shoe; my foot is average to narrow and I have a high instep. I originally ordered a 8.5 figuring they would be wide and I didn't want too much slippage inside the shoe (blister prevention). My toes were to the top and just about curling. I was a bit surprised, but no problem, I returned them, crossed my fingers and ordered the 9.5. They fit perfect. Just enough room so that my toes won't be slamming the front of the toe cap when I walk. The shoes are pricey, but definitely worth the money. They are very well made and soooooo comfortable. They don't make me look like I have Frankenstein feet - a definite bonus. I really like the styling of the shoe, the blue is a nice touch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sfmartin Great boots!
These boots are wonderful! Light weight, provide good stability & no break-in required! I have heel spurs in both feet & plantar fasciitis, so it is often difficult finding comfortable shoes & boots. Have been wearing them off & on for hiking & even just running errands & they are very comfortable! Only reason I gave 4 stars is they are pricey.
