Rated 5 out of 5 by Whosays Great Shoes
I've worn out two pair of these shoes - not because of any fault of the shoe. They've always given more than their share of service, and comfortable to the end. The last pair I got, the sole peeled off - replacement - no problem. Thanks L.L. Bean! I do think these run a little bit short. Get a 1/2 size larger than normal and they'll be right as rain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by smillerca something has changed
I was fan of these and have been through a few pairs. They never held up all that well but were always exceptionally comfortable. The most recent pair I bought a couple months ago just don't seem the same. They seem stiffer and narrower and I can't walk nearly as far in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dadm I HIGHLY recommend Comfort Mocs !
I presently own three pairs of these shoes. The oldest, about 4+ years and the other two about 3+ years. They are the most comfortable shoes I own, or have owned EVER ! My first pair is smooth leather and my later two pairs are suede. I wear them everywhere! The only exception would be for weddings, where patent leather black shoes are required. Below I list my pros:
1) They fit true to size.
2) They are waterproof, if not water resistant for at least three years ! I have worn them in snow, slush and rain. I am not exaggerating. I have a 94 lb. dog and he must go out at least twice a day - no matter what the weather is like. I do not wear them in standing water - I have my LL Bean duck boots for that.
3) They have the best sole tread pattern ever designed. They are easily cleaned out - no matter what you step in, unlike those intricate tread patterns that look 'rugged' and great but are a pain to clean out.
4) My Comfort Mocs in suede have aged better than my Comfort Moc in smooth leather. I wish it were the other way around but truth be told that is simply the way it is.
5) the 'break in period' is zero. They are a little looser after four years than day one. They are super comfortable throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SebN EXCELLENT shoe
Great shoe, very comfortable, feels very good on the foot.
Feels like you could walk for days and not get tired.
1 hour in pouring rain? sure - bring it on - these shoes did not let any of that rain in.
Just make sure you order half a number larger than what you normally wear. the fit is a bit on the small side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonW04609 Awesome Shoe!!
This shoe is perfect! Very comfortable, easy to put on and great quality. Exactly what you would expect from LLBean! I usually fit in a 10, but went 10.5 based on reviews and they are a perfect fit. Nice and wide, lots of room for my toes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EHaddaman Didn't Meet Expectations
I really want to like these shoes -- they are very nice looking and seem to be extremely well made.
That said, I just can't reconcile the product I received with the one in the description. I was looking for something to wear around the house, and for light trips outside (running errands, going to the mailbox, etc.), and from the description, these seemed exactly right. First of all, even though I ordered a half size larger than normal, they are still extremely snug. Like bordering-on-uncomfortable-with-midweight-wool-socks snug. Wearing them with lightweight ankle socks is an exercise in futility, as walking any distance in theme pulls the sock down into the moc so that I'm walking on a wadded up sock around the middle of my foot, and nothing covering my heel and ankle. They are also nearly impossible to put on, even with a shoe horn. Even after getting my foot into it, I need to fiddle with the ankle padding a few times to get it unfolded and not digging into the back of my ankle. Perhaps these issues would be solved with a larger size, but as I said, I already went up a half a size from my normal shoes.
Even were the above issues resolved, these don't compare well with either my hiking boots, my New Balance walkers (the former "knock around" footware) or my running shoes. Despite being a slip on design, they actually require more fiddling to get on than my hiking boots (see above). The footbed is less contoured and less padded than the others, so they aren't terribly comfortable to walk around in, and there is less padding at the sides and ankles.
I gave these shoes 2-1/2 months (they were a Christmas gift) hoping that after breaking them in, they would become my new "go-to" shoe, but unfortunately, they're in the "not worth it" category, and spend a lot of time under the bench in the hall while the walkers get more mileage put on them. I'm going to try exchanging for a larger size and see if that helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mainstream1 Sorry to have to write this
I am usually more than satisfied with Bean products. However these mocs are going back.
What i like: the look, the heel and comforting sole
What i don't like: the fit (i'm a true 10 and these are like 9 1/2, extremely tight (i wanted to give the benefit of the doubt thinking that they will "stretch".), the heel of my foot coming out like i'm wearing flip-flops (i live in Florida and am sick of that feel), i anticipate unnecessary blistering, and i'm not into that. Sorry guys, i need to find a better product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbeanshopper2016 Shoes not so good, Customer Service Excellent
The shoes started out great, great fit, and felt comfortable. I wore them only to work (office building). Unfortunately after just one year the shoes started separating from the bottom and coming apart. I've had other shoes fall apart like this within 4-6 months. I was expecting much more out of these being LLBean (at least 2-3 years before something like this would happen).
To my surprise, when I called to ask LLBean if these shoes are just not the same quality as their boots I was told I could return them for a full refund since I was not satisfied. In fact, I the shoes were a gift, so I didn't even buy them under my account. No problem they said.
Very few companies these days really go the extra mile to make sure their customers are happy. So I bought a different pair of LLBean shoes and got my refund.
I own a lot of LLBean and am very happy overall with the quality and their superior customer service. That's how you keep a customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RidersDad Fit was fine
I thought there may be a fit problem, based on reviews, but my normal sz 11M fit nicely. The shoes are comfy, light, and I like that the soles do not have huge treads. The leather may not be the best idea to wear in wet weather - will know after a few months. I like them so much I am ordering another pair in the other color. Not much of a difference from the rugged moc, which are a little more $.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gregory9 Looks good but sized small
I got a pair of LL BEAN slip ons a Christmas ago and have worn them virtually continually. I wanted a slip on to wear outside without laces, easy to take off and on and keep the wife happy particularly in wet winter. I got these. Look great, but definately small and hard to get into. I am a very standard 10 med width. The 10 was tight with a light weight sock. I could order a 10.5, but think I'll check a store first, or maybe order another pair of slip ons.
