Rated 5 out of 5áby mellowhello Super comfy, warm, and durable
I ordered these after going through a few too many rainy days at college that ended in soaked jeans and clammy feet. Since they arrived, I've already been through a severe thunderstorm with them and I love them. My feet were cozy and dry the whole time I wore them, even after I ran home during a tornado warning. The only thing I don't like about them is that I have to unlace them partway to comfortably get my feet out, but that's only a minor issue. They're still very comfortable, and though I haven't gotten the chance to wear them out in the woods yet, I'm sure they'll be great in that setting as well.
I'd definitely recommend them to anyone I know who is in need of some durable, water-resistant shoes.

Love these boots. The leather is definitely soft, but for the first couple of days, the boots creased right at my ankle and rubbed a bit. They quickly softened up though, and are now perfect and super comfortable. I normally wear a size 8.5 shoe and ordered the 7. I like to wear fairly thick wool socks in the winter, and the size 7 feels great- plenty of room for my feet whether I'm wearing thin or thicker socks. Very warm and comfortable in rain, slush, and snowy weather. I wear them all the time!

This is my second pair of Maine Hunting Shoes. I had my first pair for 35+ years. I could have had them re-soled, but I wanted the dark brown color instead of the old tan ones. When the water is pure and sweet, you go back to the same well!

Rated 5 out of 5áby PAridgerunner My new Bean boots
I retired my 40 yaer old bean boots and bought new ones. They fit exceptionally well and are super comfortable with little break-in. The leather tops appear to be superior to the old with a pebble grain, water repellent appearance. The gusset is contoured and dosen't want to wrinkle! I can hardly wait to get outdoors with them!

Rated 3 out of 5áby tennislvr Just for rain boots
I live in Southern California. I received these boots last March after they were back ordered so I didn't get a chance to use them until the following winter. I purchased them primarily for snowshoeing because most of the reviews said they would keep you warm & dry. Well they did keep me dry but definitely not warm. I have since used them two times in the San Jacinto mtns for snowshoeing in no less than 30 degree temps. I wore the llbean rag wool socks & my feet were instantly cold so I added some cotton socks & it helped a bit. The second use I bought the lambs wool inserts & used those along with the wool socks & my toes were still pretty cold. This really limited the amount of time I could stay outside. I had to actually go up to the lodge & take the boots off to warm my feet near a heater. I am very disappointed and hope I can still return them. If all I needed them for was rain, they would otherwise be fine however it doesn't rain here that often for me to need this type rugged boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful boots!
I bought these boots a few weeks ago and love them. They are actually my "second generation" of Maine Hunting Shoe--I bought the "shoe style" shorter ones years ago and wore them out, they never leaked, always kept my feet dry. These boots are no different, I have already worn them in rain, mud, etc., and they are comfortable, warm and dry! Food for thought on size--I am a women's size 9 and after reading the recommendations of LL Bean and the folks' reviews, for myself I decided to get my true size, and don't regret it one bit. Yes they are a bit "big" but I am in my mid-50s, my feet sometimes swell a little, and I have twice injured my left ankle/foot, twisted it, causing it to be a bit "thicker" than usual--if you have a tendency for swelling feet, or have injured your foot, I highly recommend getting your true size. I wear them with thick or two pairs of socks, and they are perfect. If I had bought them in size 8, likely they would've been "too tight" at times for my injured left foot. Keep the condition of your ankles and feet in mind when you choose a size!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JaneKate Buy these boots
These are great boots. Buy these boots. My sisters have been wearing my mum's Bean boots that she had since college so I set off to get my own. These are fab. I have hardly taken them off since I got them.
The leather is great, breaking in nicely, will last for generations.
Went hiking through the snow in them yesterday. Wore them with a pair of heavy-weight wool socks, feet stayed perfectly warm and perfectly dry. I like that the sole isn't chunky, gives good foot control on slippery ground.
Plus--they are cute and classy looking. I don't feel weird about wearing them indoors or to work.
Buy these boots.
