Boys' Liam Casual Slip-on Shoes
my son loves these shoes!
When you're in a hurry, laces can be a real drag, and sandals are not an option in autumn. That was my first notion when I got these for my 7 yr old. It was a bonus that they kind of slip by as a dress shoe in a pinch, looking great with cords and khakis. Not only did my boy adore these shoes, he has worn them almost daily ever since - excepting only gym days (sneakers) and super snowy days (boots, of course). They are holding up pretty well, although the ice melt stuff is taking its toll. I just picked up a pair on sale in the next size up, b/c he'll probably outgrow them before he wears them out completely. Great shoe.

My 8 year old needed a slip on show that he could wear this winter. The athletic shoes with mesh are too "breathable" for these cold temperatures and his feet were getting cold and wet. He absolutely loved these slip on shoes. They have internal elastic around the back and sides of the shoes so they stay on his feet well and don''t slip off. We are both pleased.

Wore Out Very Quickly
Although my son found these shoes comfortable, they wore out much quicker than any other shoes we have bought for him. Within 6 weeks, the soles had worn so thin as to result in holes and wet feet. We have been very surprised by this as most of our Lands End shoes hold up very well.

Nice casual shoe
I ordered these for my 9 year old son who is extremely picky that his shoes be comfortable! He wears them to church and they look nice with jeans. The back heel has an elastic band that cups over the hump of the heel to prevent these loafers from slipping off with every step. That is genius! The only reason I don't give these shoes 5 stars is b/c the white bottoms are already really dirty and look pretty bad. If the bottoms were any darker color to hide the dirt, I would have given these shoes 5 stars.

Great shoes for school!
My son is 10 years old. He is required to wear brown shoes as part of his uniform. They are modern and he has had no complaints. I did order another pair just like I do every year with his shoes because the soles wore out a bit. But nothing major.

Looks cute, but wears poorly
I got a pair for each of my boys. Very cute shoes. BUT, they are not holding up well at all. I noticed after a week that the color stripe around the base was rubbing off. We have had the shoes for a couple of months and now the soles are wearing through. These are not holding up the way our past Lands' End shoe purchases have held up. As of now my youngest is wearing an old hand-me down pair of Lands End mocs from 4 years ago instead of the new ones simply because they grip better. Bummer.

difficult to get on
My 7-year old son loved the pictures of these and was excited to finally have some cool slip on shoes. They were extremely difficult to get on his foot. Once he got it on, the sizing was fine to the toe, but they are not a "slip" on. The elastic around the ankle is tight and he is normal size (not wide). We returned them and are still looking for a great slip on boy's shoe. They are very cute, though, that's why they're earning 2 ships from me.

These shoes look and feel great!
My 12 year old son loves these! He likes how easy they are to slip on. I like that they are casual but nice. I would have given five stars if they had more arch support.

Our new go-to shoe
Nice everyday shoe. My son claims they are more comfy than his athletic shoes. I was looking for something to break up the monotony of tennis shoes everyday. Easy for him to put on by himself and goes with plenty in his wardrobe. I agree with another reviewer, they look great with "skinny pants".

Looks cute but.,,
This shoe was not what I expected. My son wore the all weather moc last year but I thought I would try something different. I ended up exchanging for the moc again. This shoe does not seem as rugged and it had an odd neoprene sock type thing around the opening that did not seem securely attached to the suede of the shoe. It is a cute shoe but not for my kid, he's too rough on his shoes.
