Rated 5 out of 5 by NanceoftheNorth Like Walking on Clouds!
Well, I am so happy to review the one shoe that has made my life so much more enjoyable. I have heel spurs that require orthodics. I thought that this shoe would fit like other boat shoes once they were inserted, but this wonderful shoe has a sole like no other! Like walking on clouds is the best description... PLEASE MAKE MORE, Perhaps a Dark Navy/Black Combo that can be worn in winter. These shoes are TOO PERFECT just to waste on boats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by baypines Portlander Flex Boat Shoe
I bought the pink as it was on sale and was pleasantly surprised at the fit. I usually wear a 7.5 or 8, but I took a chance and tried the 7's. The shoes are excellently constructed and fit like a glove first time out of the box!! Walking in them is a pleasure. The color is very pretty and should go with most things I have. Another plus for your products and a very happy customer!! Love LL Bean!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointed
After reading the reviews I thought I'd like them. Trouble is they make my feet look HUGE. Seemed awfully wide in the toe area. My foot is narrow but I thought with the lace they would work. Wrong...these are not for a narrow foot. Really disappointed, I was hoping for a cute boat shoe for the summer. Instead I had to send them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ehjulstrom Comfortable and cute!
I was looking for a pair of boat shoes and these fit the bill perfectly! I got the coral color in size 7 (I usually wear a 7 or 7.5) and they were so comfortable right out of the box. I haven't worn them for a long period of time yet (just around my house), but I can't wait to use them on vacation next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SNAGGLETOOTH Yes, they are as described!!
I ordered these boat shoes based on the positive reviews, especially the reviewer with foot problems like mine. I tried them on as they came out of the box. The comfort and fit were great. Then I slipped in my prescription orthotics. There was plenty of room for them to go in the shoes and to my delight, my feet still fit very comfortably in the shoes.
A very well made, comfortable boating shoe I would be happy to recommend to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spotsmom Loved them, but they were too wide
Beautiful shoes! Loved the look, loved the color, but unfortunately the medium width was too wide for me. If it was wide when I first put them on I knew it would only get worse. I am returning them with a note that I wish they would offer them in a narrow fit.
They did seem like there would be little break-in time with them! Oh do I wish they had fit!

I tried these on in the store first and found them to be very comfortable. So I was excited to see them on sale in my size on the website. I bought them and they're comfortable out of the box. No breaking in period. No blisters on my heels. Nothing. Just comfy.
I bought my typical size and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happydogmom My new favorite shoes :)
It's nothing short of a miracle for me to find comfortable, well-fitting shoes. I have had tailor's bunions surgically corrected on both feet, I have plantar faciitis and I have to wear orthotic inserts - in short, my feet are a hot mess! I typically wear a size 9 and a wide width. It's difficult to find shoes that fit and still feel good on my feet once I put my orthotic inserts in. THESE. SHOES. ARE. FABULOUS. They are plenty roomy in the toe box even with my inserts in them. The laces stay tied. The color is great. They are insanely comfortable - right out of the box. I cannot say enough good things about these shoes! They definitely rival a pair of tennis shoes in their level of comfort and support. Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moosehiker Most comfortable boating shoe I have ever owned!
I just love the Portlander Free Flex Boat shoes! I purchased my first pair at an LLBean store while on vacation in New Jersey earlier this summer. The first pair I purchased are a wide width, but I also wanted a navy blue pair and they were only available in medium width online. I ordered the medium and they also fit just fine! The laces stay tied, and it only took wearing them a couple of times before they felt broken in, without blisters! Rain or shine, they are my favorite go to fast drying, non slip, wear without socks shoe. I wear them more than any other shoes that I own. I like them better for walking than my tennis shoes. Thanks for making such an awesome boat shoe! So much more comfortable than other brands of boat shoes!!! Thanks LLBean!!!!!
