Rated 5 out of 5 by RomeosMom from Great shoe! Need more color choices I ordered this shoe in a 9 wide and it fits perfectly, just like the other L.L. Bean Trail Model shoes I have ordered. I'm so glad that you have these shoes in a wide size since I cannot wear regular-width shoes. Would love to see more color choices in Wide shoes on your site. I only use my Trail Model waterproof shoes in winter, so I really appreciate these ventilated shoes to wear during the hot summers we have here in the south. I also love this shoe because it provides excellent support for my unsteady ankles. I don't just wear them for hiking. I wear them most of the time for everyday activities. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by fiverc from Back of shoe too high I wear a 6-1/2 in everyday shoes, and I ordered a size 7 in this hiking shoe. The width and length are comfortable, and the toe box has plenty of space. I think it's an attractive, well-constructed hiking shoe at a very good price. However, the back of the shoe is too high for me, and I think it will cause discomfort in the Achilles tendon area after a significant distance. I'm conscious of that contact point just walking around the house. I'm surprised that none of the other 87 reviewers mentioned this. I'll be returning the shoes for this reason, but overall, I still think it's a very good shoe for those who are not bothered by the high back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by quality from Womans trail hiker model 4 I absolutely LOVE these low top hikers. Right from the box they were so comfortable. I have problems with bunions so I ordered the wide size hoping that I would be able to hike in ease. The width size is perfect and I am able to hike again whereas regular widths in my other hikers were becoming uncomfortable. They are sturdy and true to LL Bean, well made. I am very happy with them and would recommend these to anyone. I've never had low tops before as my husband and I have been avid backpack hikers. These are not only great for day hikes but I wouldn't hesitate to use them on longer trips. They have excellent tread also. Very pleased

Rated 2 out of 5 by WorknPlayMom from Flaw in construction from previous model I bought these in the tan/green in 2018, and love them. They’re my favorite pair. They are starting to show signs of wear, so I ordered them in the grey. This pair has a defect in the manufacture of the inside of the shoe lining. On my old pair, the lining is stitched firmly into place. On the grey pair, upon wrestling to pull out the wads of tissue, the inside lining snagged and pulled back, revealing a shoddy glued construction which retained bits of the tissue. This will rub against my feet, and not hold up. I’m disappointed. It looks like both shoes are constructed this way. I’m afraid they’re going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VermontGrandma from I love my ventilated trail model hikers I finally replaced my 15 year old Country Walkers with these new shoes to walk the hills every day in hilly Vermont. The old ones are a bit shabby as the man-made cushions around the top near the back of the ankle separated from the leather shoe - a couple of years ago. But the leather and laces kept the shoes working. They have been amazing. I was nervous to get the new ones made by LLBean, but my fears are over. Now, my feet can be cooler in the summer. And I will definitely order the water-proof ones for winter. I really needed the heavily crafted sole for safe walking in all kinds of weather. I have to wear a lift in my left shoe, but it fits fine; and so does the right foot shoe.. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fam7 from Favorites in a long time! Love these, have had them over a month now. I wear them every single day and I am on my feet most of the day. The soles offer great stability in snowy/rainy/icy weather running around with my kids and the dog. Achilles heal had some tenderness early on, but I believe this was due to me being used to very low cut socks and sneakers. I would suggest wearing a higher, cushy sock the first few times. Now broken in, when I wear a lower cut, thin sock these shoes are extra roomy. With a thicker sock they are perfect. I am now ordering another style of LLBean brand shoes for myself. I am allso ordering shoes for my boys of the LLBean brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momwhoknowshowtoshop from great hiking shoe I have trouble finding wide shoes with a good fit. The 8W was true to size on length and they were comfortable around my entire wide foot! The only slight problem I noted was they initially rubbed slightly on the top of my toes - maybe I have a high arch? But after loosening laces and wearing them for 2 days, I did not notice that any more. I wore them for a week in Colorado and they were great on the trails! They were light weight and perfect on dirt trails, both ascending and descending. So glad I bought them! I highly recommend them - especially if you have a wide foot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guppygirl from No break in time, comfortable with great fit I have problems with my feet and I walk, stand on cement floors all day at work. After about three hours my feet would hurt so bad. I tried many different shoes only to give up on them within a month. I was looking for some soft rubber soles instead of the hard rubber. This shoe has both, the softer inside and the hard on the outside for traction so you get the cush where its needed. Has great arch support. I had no break in time with these shoes and so far I can wear them all day without my feet hurting. I am very pleased with these shoes and would buy more if in different colors .I have received several comments on what great looking shoes they are. Thanks to LL Bean, my feet are happy again.
