Rated 5 out of 5 by History14 Great Casual Shoe
I ordered these shoes along with a pair of Chukka Boots in size 11 wide. When I received them they were too narrow so being a graduate of the American Shoe Fitting Institute (which means I can fit prescription shoes). I gaged that I would have to get 1 whole size larger owing to the fit the 11 (EE) were giving me. So I ordered size 12 wide and what a great fit! The small added length is absolutely no problem and I can wear any type of sock I have with no problems. I have recommended these shoes to my relatives, friends and neighbors. For me, when something works well, I spread the good word around. Also, I was surprised that the shoe strings stay tied. So far they haven't come loose on any walking excursions I've made.
The exchange process with LL Bean was smooth and exactly as they said it would be. GREAT COMPANY TO DO BUSINESS WITH!! Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimC111 Great shoes
I ordered these online (9 wide, normal shoes), they were a little tight due to the thick socks, so I called and they sent a new pair (9 1/2 wide) and they fit perfect. The new pair was sent by the quick order and I received them the next day, despite the snow storm!!! That is great customer service. The shoes are solid, comfortable and I would recommend. I continue to purchase from LL Bean due to the quality and customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarefulShopper222 Good Shoe
Nice shoe. Well made. Definitely lighter than the picture, so if you don't like a light tan shoe, this is not the shoe for you. Otherwise you will like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by curlywasastooge Not a normal LL Bean 11D
First, color is lighter than pictured but I could have lived with that. However tight in width and feel short. Size 11D from LL Bean has never been an issue before. So, unfortunately going back tomorrow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steveinphilly extra wide, not really wide
I ordered the shoe in extra wide however the wide doesn't extend to the toe box. I had to return them because for me, they were unwearable. Nice, well made shoe, just not wide enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by irishrusty excellent comfort and quality
I bought these for my husband as he wanted a casual shoe to wear to church, etc. He says they are very comfortable and do not need to be broken in. The only reason why I gave these a 4 star is because the color slightly lighter than as pictured.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DT30030 Slippery Heel
Loved the shoes but didn't fit. The heels were too wide for my foot and therefore slipped so returned for refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanTheMan1 Nice product; great fit out of box
These are nice comfortable shoes righ tout of the box. The rubber soles are modestly aggressive but don't collect a lot of debris. The overall fit is accurate (for me, size 11.5M). Laces are also nice: round and substantial and not overly long. I also like that there is NOT an excessive amount of padding in the upper (a technique some poor fitting shoes seem to use to cover a poor fit) -- that is, they fit well because they are shaped nicely. They also offer good sole resistance to pointy rocks -- not like a mountain hiker would but MUCH better than a sneaker or most cross-trainers. The heel is not as pronounced as I like but it's adequate to prevent downhill slipping (just watch out for leaves!). All in alla very nice shoe that fits well, is comfortable out of the box and looks very good for casual wear, trail walking and maybe light hiking.
