Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgiahuntnandfishn Best Boot You'll Buy
You've read the reviews. This many people can't be wrong. This is one of the best purchases I've made. I've been wearing the same pair since 1988. They've been re-soled 3x (due to wearing down the rubber chain-tread bottoms). I hunt deer, turkey, quail and dove every year wearing the same boots. I throw them on when it rains. I wear them on the farm. I wear them fishing at the pond. I've owned and still own other boots (Georgia, LaCrosse, Chippewa, Danner, Russell), but I find myself always reaching for my Maine Hunting Shoes. They just fit me well and are comfortable enough to walk miles in if need be. I ordered unlined, uninsulated boots as I need to occasionally wear them in humid conditions but I find that during the winter, a sock liner and heavy wool socks keep my feet warm enough. And regarding the waterproof claim, I've yet to have mine leak. Thanks LLBean for a product I can count on year after year.

Best turkey hunting boot there is. They are light, quiet, waterproof and very comfortable.
I have been wearing the Maine Hunting Shoe for about 50 years and plan to wear them the rest of my turkey hunting life.

I bought these as a gift for someone who needed all weather boots, and wanted bean boots. I was reluctant to order them online after seeing reviews about sizing. We went to a store in our area and tried them on. He is usually a size 11 in sneakers, and in the store he happened to be a size 10, which is what I expected. Even going a size down he still wears them with his ski socks and they fit perfectly, so I would not worry about ordering them a size down and fearing that thicker socks will make them too small.
Style wise, these boots are unique with their stitching. When picking them out he did not want the stitching to show and these boots were ones that did that, unique from some of the other bean boot styles. The 10 inch length has also proven to be useful during our first snow of the year.
I would recommend these boots to anyone! It might be the best gift that I have bought in a long time!

I wear these on the farm?in the barn, on the tractor, and out in the muddy, sloppy spring fields. I wear them while kayaking, hiking, and fishing. My feet are always dry. Then, when my family tells me it's time to go out, I pull out the hose, rinse them off, and head out with nice looking shoes. They're the best ever. To boot, they're handmade and not at all part of the modern, economic problem. Win win.

10in is a great length, a real boot. Fits well. Went a size smaller than I usually would from what I heard about LLBean boots and they fit pretty well, still enough room for socks. Happy purchase

I have worn these boots every year upland hunting since 1989. Stayed waterproof, stayed subtle and have been very comfortable. Great hunting boots. If and when they wear out, I will buy another pair as long as they are made in these here United States.

I got a pair of these last Christmas. Not living near an actual store, it took a little while for me to get the proper fit, but I finally did.
I'll start off by saying that I live in TN, so it can get pretty cold and wet, but I will mostly be wearing these boots with socks that are approximately 1/4 inch thick. Originally I had a pair in size 10, as I wear a 10.5 in Nike running shoes, I figured this would work. They were much larger than I expected them to be. Even with my thickest pair of socks on, when laced, the two sides of the boot would touch each other and my foot could move around.
When I was going to size down, I just ordered a 9 and and 8 so I could get it taken care of all at once. I ended up going with the size 9 and they are extremely comfortable, well made boots. Couldn't be happier with the quality.
As some reviewers have mentioned, get the lacing hooks on your boots. It makes getting them on and off soooo much easier.

PER OTHER REVIEWS, THESE BOOTS RUN SOMEWHAT LARGE. NORMALLY I WEAR A SIZE 9, I ORDERED AN 8, AND WITH A BOOT SOCK, THE FIT IS PERFECT. THE OVERALLL LOOK IS VERY GOOD, AND THE COLOR IS RIGHT ON PER THE CATALOG.

What a great pair of boots! Sizing is right on. I wear a size 10 and ordered a 9 and have some room for thicker socks. Boots look just like the images on the website. Can't wait to go hunting in them. Very comfortable right out of the box.
