Rated 5 out of 5 by HPH48 My Go-to, All-Purpose Boots-- Incredibly Durable!!
I've had these boots for almost three years, and they have held up fantastically. I am slightly pigeon-toed and have high arches; needless to say I am hard on shoes. Usually heels will be completely worn down after a year, but not on these boots! I will have to get them resoled eventually, but I think I'll be able to get five years worth out of them first, which is unheard of for me. I can wear them all day without getting sore arches. When paired with thick socks like Smartwools my feet stay plenty warm. I haven't worn my snow boots since getting these! I often pass on my rainboots as well. The laces tie tightly enough to accommodate my slim legs and keep out any snow or rain. These boots are worth every penny.

I'm an 8 in uggs or Moccs but a 9 in sneakers, sandals, and riding boots (thin socks). I have very flat feet too. I decided to get a size 9 so I can wear wool socks. With regular thin socks they are a little big (1inch gap) which is great cause I hate tight shoes. They look way prettier in person than online! They also look better with jeans than leggings. They aren't too heavy either unlike Hunter boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BioDobe I absolutely love these boots.
I live in SW MO where we have fairly wet winters and I spend a lot of time outdoors. I have wanted a sturdy, functional boot for years but never quite got what I wanted from other boots. I believe I've finally found it in this boot. They instantly became my absolute favorites; my go-to boots. I love that they're just loose enough I can pair them with thick wool socks for added warmth, but they're thin enough my feet don't sweat in warmer weather with thinner socks (we have wet springs, too).
These boots are exactly what I have wanted in a boot for years. I can't imagine doing without them ever again.

I am in love with these boots! In the winter I travel between the Northeast and the Midwest, so I wanted a pair of boots that could withstand all the elements as well as some wear and tear, and I have to say, these boots do not disappoint! I wear them as both rain boots and snow boots and am very happy with them. The stiff leather uppers do take a little breaking in, but the boots were still very comfy on the first wear with good support. I am a 7.5 normally with what I consider slightly wider feet, and I ordered a 6 and can still wear them comfortably with thick wool socks and ample room in the toe box. I wear them with both jeans and leggings comfortably (though I have to wear them with skinny jeans as a lot of denim stuffed into the uppers tends to be a little uncomfortable) and I think they're very stylish in a classic sort of way- overall, nothing but happiness here!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SearchingForBoots Terrible blisters
I ordered these boots in preparation for the messy New England Weather that we always get in the fall and winter. I wore them for the first time this week, and they tore my feet to pieces. I've never had so many blisters from a shoe of any kind as badly as this, on the backs of my heels and even on the outside of each foot. Fortunately LL Bean says they'll take them back. I was really hoping and expecting these would work, so I'm pretty disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Temmy Fantastic product, impressive customer service
I could not be happier with my new bean boots. The quality is unparalleled and I'm happy to support a U.S.-made product. Best customer service and shopping experience I've had in a while. I normally wear a size 8-8.5 shoe and the size 7 boots fit me perfectly. Thank you for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by eranfaraway Great boots, but watch out for wet rocks!
I usually wear an 8 but ordered a 7 and they fit great with my heavy socks! I have only had them for a week so I cannot attest to their durability but I don't worry about defects with LL Bean's warranty. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for hunting in the Northwest. I will note that you should be wary of wet rocks and tile in these, they are REALLY slippery in those circumstances! So happy to find a reasonably priced hunting boot made in the USA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nessy801 Best boots ever
First time buying from LLBean. Very fast, efficient. I read the customer reviews on fit. Very helpful. I normally wear a 8.5 or 9. I ordered the 8. It fits perfect still room to wear a thick sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cpsgville LOVE these boots
LL Bean's sizing information is in fact 100% correct. I usually wear an 8/8.5 narrow so I ordered a 7 normal width (narrow width wasn't an ordering option on these unfortunately). I was apprehensive (I've NEVER fit into a size shoe), but these fit just PERFECTLY with thicker, winter-typical socks, and I honestly don't think they feel too big with regular socks either! I'm moving up to NYC and can't wait to see how these work out in the midst of snow and slush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BakaMonsterDC beautiful boots
I live and work in DC so I needed boots that are comfy and practical for my walk to and from the metro and walking my dogs on wooded paths in Rock Creek park, these are exactly that. They're lbs lighter then my old Sorel's, which could be because my old boots are 10+ years old, but still awesome. I followed others recommendations and sized down from my normal size 10 to a 9, they fit nicely with both a thick wool sock and a thinner one as well.
