Men's Erie Camp Mocs
Runs narrow, but well made
Unlike their Huron "Chukka" which is a lower end camp moc in comparison, Lands' End got it right with build quality here. Double-soled (Commando/Lug style) and welted, and with functional 360° lacing, this contends with similar offerings from contemporary brands, but for width. These, unlike other similar shoes from Lands' End, say the Mainstay boat shoe, run far more narrow (they're likely from a different vendor). As an 11, I had to size up to a 12 when trying these on in-store, and they still felt tight in width near the ball of the foot. There was no 13 in stock to try, but I expect there would be too much foot slide lengthwise at that point anyhow. A shame. If these only matched widths for previous offerings, or were available in a wide, I would be in love. However, if you have a narrower foot, I recommend you give these a try.

Not that comfortable for long walks
Was disappointed that these shoes aren't comfortable for long walks and it's hard to tell why. Maybe they didn't break in to be soft, maybe the heel is too high, not really sure. Perhaps I got used to the competing product.

Good quality shoe
The shoes were a bit tight, but my husband is wearing them in and we hope it will stretch enough to be perfect in no time.

finding my size is tiring when buying by mail--order
This is my third attempt to purchase these shoes. They do not fit correctly and I'm returning them. The manufacturers (China) don't seem to understand what an American foot size is.

Excellent boat shoe
The Erie Camp Mocs is a winner. I have worn other name brand boat shoes and eventually gave them away because of the way they felt with or without socks. Even though they all look great with jeans, khaki's or with shorts, most fall short in comfort because they are designed with little support or cushion. The Erie Camp Mocs does have a cushioned leather insert that molds to your feet and for me, felt comfortable right out of the box. I can also say, upon inspection, they appear quality made and I would rate them right up there with the best of them.

Same as above..... COMPLETELY not-to-size
After shopping with Lands' End for over 25 years and having come to depend on accurate sizing of all of their products, I was totally amazed at how poorly these shoes fit when they arrived. I ordered a 12 and I would venture to guess that they would actually be a very tight 11.
Another problem I have is that because of depending on Lands' End's accurate sizing in the past, I threw away the box without giving it a second thought... without even trying on the shoes first ... now it's 3 months later and when I went to try them on, I could barely even get my feet into them; so tight that I would never (and have never) worn them. Considering the price of these, I'm really disappointed at the poor fit and the possibility/probability that I won't even be able to exchange them.
Whether or not that happens, I'm writing this review to caution any other potential buyers to probably purchase at least 1 - 1 1/2 sizes larger than you need in order to get a comfortable fit, and also in hopes that Lands' End will see these reviews and repackage them and sell them at the actual manufactured size.

Not an 8D by any STRETCH
I was impressed by the construction and appearance of these shoes, but they are worthless because they are not true to size. Someone is trying to cut material costs by making the ball of the foot narrower to get more pieces cut from a sheet of leather or other material. Nesting is the process of laying out the pieces you need to cut from a sheet of material. The goal is to get as many pieces and minimize waste. But you don't get a good result when you make the piece smaller than it needs to be! I recently got a pair of the Huron mocs (item 412639) and they fit me well, true to size. I measured the sole at the widest point and they are 3/8" ( 1cm) wider than the Erie! Trying on the Erie, my toes bunched up and were hitting the end of the shoe.Where is the quality control? Increasingly I find that it comes down to the customer. Both shoes are made in China. If you bought a pair and they don't fit take them to Sears for a return.
