Rated 1 out of 5 by MTTony Outsoles fail repeatedly
These soles are just not durable. I like the shoe very much, they fit well, are quite comfortable and look good, and Bean replaces them happily - but, stiil, not happy with the product itself.
I've had 3 pair thus far - 2 black, one coffee bean - and I've experienced the soles cracking completely through beneath the ball, where the shoe flexes as I walk. The most recent pair failed after just 7 months. I wear them for travel (they're airport friendly), almost exclusively indoors, so environment is not a significant factor. I'm not close to wearing them out, and in fact the lugs on the sole still look good as does the rest of the shoe.
As a quibble, the laces fail well before the soles.
LL Bean return and replacement service: Excellent!
East Point Oxford Shoe: Unsatisfactory.

Rated 2 out of 5 by T222 Could be better
I like the look of these shoes very much. However, they did not hold up as well as other shoes I have purchased from LL Bean. Almost immediately, one lace started to fray. Within two months of use it was broken. After about 10 months, the stitching above the heel at the back of the shoe came loose. The shoe bed seems worn out too.
Not as comfortable as other LL Bean shoes I have had.

I purchased these shoes as one of my husband's birthday presents. He loves them! They are a perfect fit, well made and stylish, and very comfortable from the first wearing. I highly recommend these shoes.

I love this these shoes. They feel great and they last for years. I've been wearing the blacks and wanted to get a brown pair. Sadly I was just informed that they are out of my size and discontinuing the line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlimmerTwin Comfortable fit and excellent quality
I slipped on the East Point Oxfords and they were a perfect fit to my 9.5 foot. After one or two days of wearing, they are very comfortable and look great! The leather and stitching are of the highest quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldenDogwalker22 comfortable
These shoes were pretty comfortable out of the box. I made the mistake of walking 3 miles with them the first week and got caught in a rainstorm. The shoes held up great but I got blisters on my heels. I guess I need to break them in a little slower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrittanyB AMAZING SHOES!
My husband loves these shoes! He is wearing these shoes to work where he is always "on the run". He usually complains of his feet hurting after work but not with these shoes! Awesome!

I buy these shoes for my husband once a year. He says they're excellent! They're comfy. He wears them a lot.
