Women's Joanne Driving Mocs
Great fit, sadly very poor quality
Thankfully I bought these shoes on sale because although I love the colors and fit, the quality is very disappointing. One pair has a hole in them and the stitching is falling apart. I wear them infrequently and that's disappointing. It's all very well bring Guaranteed Period, but for us international customers the cost of postage for return is often more than the original sale price. I've bought Lands End for over 20 years because of the quality. I've never returned an item. I would return these but it's just not economical. I do hope this isn't the beginning of the end of your previous impeccable reputation. I couldn't be more disappointed.

No arch support
Great color but shoe won't stay on because of my high arch.

Comfortable and nice-looking casual shoes
I originally ordered these moccasins in my usual size 8 medium / B width but they were very tight in the toe box and I didn't think they'd loosen up enough over time, so I returned them. Since I really like this moc style, I decided to give them another try when they went on sale but this time I ordered size 8 in the wide / D width.
The wide width pair was comfortable right out of the box and while the heel area is just the slightest bit loose, I can live with that. I should note that I always wear socks with my shoes so if you prefer to go sockless and you normally wear medium / B width, the wide width may be too loose for you.
The extra padding in these shoes is especially comfortable and the nonslip rubber sole makes them suitable for outdoor wear. I bought the Dark Fawn color and it's a nice shade of tan.
These mocs also appear to be well made. I'm surprised that some reviewers said the stitching on their mocs came apart because unlike most moccasins -- which usually only have one row of whip-stitching that attaches the top part of the shoe to the bottom part -- these Joanne Driving Mocs have double-stitching in the toe area and looks more durable than other moccasins I've owned.

I love these shoes! Enough of a sole to not get your feet wet on dreary days, yet light and comfortable for those warmer days. Great to wear with a variety of shorts or pants.

Comfortable and practical, cute with ankle pants
I got these shoes in a flattering beige at a great price and I am a happy camper. I've been wearing them around the house and they are quite comfortable. If I was doing a lot of walking (like 16,000 steps on a day of sightseeing), I would probably wear sockettes or "toelets" in case of rubbing. They fit true to my usual size.

I was replacing an older pair, which I had been using as house slippers. These feel a little wide, and you can no longer tighten them with the rawhide lacings. The bow and lacings are just decorative. I did buy them on sale, and for the price, I am still very happy with my purchase.

Great for around the house but not really fashionable
The overall styling of this shoe resembles a slipper more than a loafer. I've worn them outside of the house once or twice but found they work better as an around the house shoe. I ordered the lime and it's very bright, very fun color. Styling-wise, these are pretty ugly functional shoes which is why I just wear them as house shoes. The ties have both come untied on my shoes and won't stay tied.
I ordered the wide width and found the toes to be narrower than I'd expect for a wide shoe. That might be the styling. That said, they don't slip off my heel like most wides. I normally wear an 8.5 Wide and I ordered an 8 Wide and they fit well (except for being a bit narrow at the toes).

Wide width fits well
Just received these shoes and was very pleased to find that the wide width was truly wide enough for my feet. I have trouble finding shoes that fit and was looking for a very casual shoe that I could slip into easily. Often, I decide to buy a pair of shoes, thinking that they will become more comfortable as I wear them and that they will "loosen" up across the widest part of my foot and this never happens. With these, I don't have to worry because they were wide enough to start with. I ordered my true size (8 wide) and was not disappointed.

One of LE's best...but a few reservations...
I like these shoes a lot...but for some reason, I find most LE shoes uncomfortable. None of them seem to have any "give" to them. These driving Mocs are a little better, and I have three different pairs of them in my closet, which I wear when I'm not doing things that will require any walking...unlike a pair of Dexter's driving mocs, which have become soft and have molded to my foot as I've worn them.
I also would like to see LE use a better quality leather for the ties...these are thin and break easily.
