Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyGirlGoneMaine Only Boots I Need
I bought these boots to wear while hiking and in the rain and snow. Best shoes I have ever worn. Completely waterproof and very warm, with thin and thick socks. I wear a size 6-7 depending on the brand, but I ordered the 7 as per recommendation from the site, and it was perfect all around. I've gotten so much use out of them that the leather on the inside of the ankles is discolored, but the overall quality regardless is great. I can wear them laced all the way up or just untied and they are comfortable and effective either way. The treads on the bottom are also great on snow and ice. The material is super flexible, so it makes these boots great for hiking, snowshoeing, walking, and obviously what they were made for, quietly moving through the woods hunting. These will probably be the only boots I'll ever need for rain, snow, and hiking. Major thumbs up, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by asadler Love this boot!
I had originally purchased the 8 inch traditional bean boot in my regular size - I had not read the sizing suggestions - and decided to return them. After a winter of regret I came to the decision of purchasing these Maine Hunting Boots. They are the PERFECT height and color (matches EVERYTHING) and are now in the perfect size with enough room to wear camp socks. After a winter of use I have decided that these shoes are the best ever and I am so thankful I chose them.

I bought these boots for my daughter as a gift and liked them so much I purchased another pair as soon as I tried hers on. They are so comfortable and a perfect fit!
Worth the wait getting them.

I absolutely love these boots.
I ordered them back in 2013 and was immediately impressed with them. The materials used and the way in which they are constructed make them super durable and comfortable. Throw them on with a pair of wool socks and you're in business.
As nice as they were straight out of the box, they have gotten better with time. The leather on mine has softened and now has a "loved" look to it that gives it some real character. They look so cool and rustic and are fashionable in their own way.
In the 2 years I've owned them I have worn these boots through mud and countless puddles, hiked up a snowy Alaskan mountain in them, and worn them for a month straight while I was traveling around Europe. I was even proposed to while wearing these boots. Throughout all of my adventures with them they have kept my feet warm, dry, and comfortable.
Though they are amazing when used outdoors, they work just as well indoors. They have nice, grippy soles and are comfortable enough to walk around in all day. I know it's a small thing but I really appreciate how quiet they are. They don't clunk around or squeak on any surface I have found. They are completely silent, even on the linoleum tiles we have in my office.
These boots are expensive but, in my opinion, are worth every penny. Don't be discouraged by backordered sizes either, these things are worth the wait. I have been so impressed with them and I know we will have a long and happy life together.
Thanks LL Bean! Making quality items seems to be a dying art. I appreciate your high standards and excellent products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by girlfromgeorgiatn Big quality big size
I love my new boots. They are very well made and have the look of real deal outdoor winter/rain boots (not cheesy knock offs). I like this height of the 10" as well as I am fairly tall (5'10"). My only complaint is that they run big. I am an 8-8.5 usually and I ordered an 8 (and I am average to slightly narrow in width) but they are pretty big and wide, but i waited so long to get them I decided to give them a go. I figured they ran on the large side for room for large wool socks (esp for maine girls) or whatever, but there is still a lot of room. They feel stable enough for outdoor work and walking around but I wouldn't feel safe breaking into a run or jog (if need be) in them as they are still pretty loose. You may want to order a size down if you need a secure fit and don't need to wear really big socks.

These boots are fantastic...comfortable and great looking. Best part, although when I purchased online in November, I was warned that I probably wouldn't receive my purchase until the following March. I was thrilled that my purchase actually arrived before Christmas...just in time for the stormy No. California weather. Thank you L.L. Bean!!!

It took a while to get them to me because of the backorder status, but the wait was worth it. I love the sole as they don?t tend to bring in the grass/hay/etc from the yard, and they are easily cleaned at the door.
I have a high arch, wide foot and large calf, so finding a boot that fits well is a challenge. I added an arch support, and wear a tall wool blend sock to make them extra comfy.
My last pair of boots from LLBean were 6? pull ons, I did the same with them. So easy to wear that I?ve nearly worn them out.
I special ordered the quick lace eyelets for these new boots, so they can be taken on and off very easily.
I LOVE these boots! They are nice enough looking to wear many places in our part of the world.

I've been wearing these for a few weeks now, thinking I would have to break them in, and they have been incredibly comfortable from the get go. i was surprised at how supportive they feel - i also have a pair of sorel's and these are much more supportive. They are also sleeker and less clunky than my sorel's. all of the reviews stating to buy down a size from your normal size are 100% true. i learned this the hardway, seeing size 11 being available and not on backorder, but when they arrived they were massive. i returned and placed an order for the backordered 10s. the estimated ship date was 3/23/16, but they actually arrived at the beginning of november!

I tried for two winters to buy a pair of these boots and they were always sold out. I decided to change my strategy and buy them in the summer :)
The fit is a little larger than I anticipated (even with the sizing guidelines) but I did not try them on with thick winter socks. I cant wait to actually wear them.
