Rated 3 out of 5 by OmaK True to size
Almost purchased a half size down as recommended, but I'm glad that I didn't. Although there is a bit of room in the toe bed, I found it to match the old standard of a thumb's width between the top of my big toe and the end of the shoe. My main complaint is that there is no removable insole. Perhaps it was the 'Sports Shoe' label that led me to expect one, but I was disappointed in that omission. It's nice to have that feature in a shoe so that you can remove the insole to wash on occasion. Guess that I'll be looking at stinky feet if wearing them in warmer weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ActiveAndBusyMom Great Casual Shoe!
I have been looking for a casual sports shoe for some time! I loved the look of this shoe online and when I got them, tried them on, and wore them, I was even more impressed. They are comfortable, versatile, and just the right style. And the price was very reasonable!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rosialie strange shape
I ordered these shoes based on most of the reviews.I wanted a lightweight comfortable shoe for spring and summer.
These shoes have a straight,narrow shape(which is the common shape for a man's foot.)
They do have a good size toe box but the straight shape I found unusable.
They also have no spring in the sole.They land on the ground with a clunck.They're very stiff. I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pagrammy52 Right out of the box........comfort!
I wasn't sure about ordering after reading some of the reviews. However, I decided to go for it and am I glad I did! I ordered my normal shoe size (usually order up for sneakers) and they fit perfectly. I have a narrow foot and need extra room in the toe area, these sneakers were perfect! While I wouldn't wear them to do any heavy duty walking, they are perfect for every day use.
Thanks LL Bean for a very comfortable and another quality product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by asebee2000 Comfy out of the box, but........
Extremely large toe box and very wide. I found them to have very little if any support. They started to come apart just a couple weeks after wearing. Very cute, so disappointed. Overpriced for what it is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bethy4 Best shoes ever
If I didn't know I had ordered these on-line I would think they were specially made for my feet. The length is perfect, there is plenty of toe room and, most importantly for me, the arch of the shoe is in the exact right spot for my foot shape. Can't wait to order them in another colour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AbbyFred No quite what I expected
These shoes are very wide and also a little long but very good looking. I kept them because adding Dr. Scholl's gel pads made them smaller and more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walker16 Most comfortable shoes ever!
I purchased these shoes in another color a few months ago and loved them so much, I just bought the blue. The width in the toe is the best - my toes are so comfortable in these shoes - I've worn them shopping and to a festival and no sore feet! I wouldn't wear them to walk for exercise as there isn't enough support, but for casual wear, they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsMahesh Where Has This Shoe Been All My Life?
It *might* be my imagination, but my entire body feels better after I wear this shoe. After several days of wearing the shoe, my gait feels different, and even my low back and hips don't seem to ache as they normally do.
There's ample room in the toe box, so none of my toes feel squished. The arch support is "just right," too. The profile of the shoe is attractive. The upper part of the back of the shoe, where it meets w/the Achilles tendon, is a bit stiff, and takes a few days to break in, so other than that, I have no other complaint.
I hope to get a lot of good use out of this shoe, and I hope that LL Bean will continue to carry it, so that when the time comes for me to replace this shoe, I can replace it with the identical shoe.
