Rated 1 out of 5 by lvs2shop Red LLBean Boots Special Edition
SO VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! RETURNING ASAP I saw these on line and thought how cute they were, didn't need them but loved the color. They were on back order, but came sooner than expected. When they arrived, the color was not as red as I thought, they are IMPOSSIBLE to get on!!!
The tongue is a terrible design because it makes it uncomfortable getting them on. It was difficult to tie/lace them all the way also. Did not tie all the way to my ankle. Last, my pair, the stitching was poor and uneven all around the middle part of the boot. My pair had scuff marks on it as well. So very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Madaboutcatalogs Not up to LL Bean's standards
I waited months to get my red boots, as they were backordered, and was very excited when they finally arrived. I have a black pair which I love. However, the tongue of the red boots is made of a very inferior grade of leather compared to my black pair, and it won't lie smoothly against my feet and ankles. I know costs rise, and I would have happily paid $10 or $20 more to get a red pair of LL Bean's famous boots that I could actually wear. I am very disappointed, and will be returning these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by marika Stiff, mis-shapen leather, uncomfortable
I was sooo excited to get my RED (favorite color) Special Edition boots. I opened the box and they were not laced up...which was actually a good thing because as soon as I got them on my feet (I bought an 8 and they fit me fine, I normally wear an 8 wide). However, the leather on the upper part of the foot and where the shoelaces go was mis-shapen and extremely STIFF. I still tried to place the two sides where the laces go to IMAGINE how beautiful they would look laced....but they were so STIFF and MIS-SHAPEN and UNCOMFORTABLE that SADLY I am sending them back! Perhaps I got a "bum" pair since it seems everyone else is giving these boots 5 stars????? Surprisingly BAD QUALITY for an LL Bean product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Avekins Amazing,I'm in love
I am absolutely in love with these waterproof boots. I use them as an alternative to rain boots (as I think these are very much more attractive and comfortable). They are so unbelievably comfortable and very nice quality leather expected from L.L.Bean. The rubber is flexible and the leather is very soft. They are the perfect utility boot and look great with just about anything.
Also, I have no skinny foot, more on the wide side than anything and I ordered and narrow and they fit perfectly leaving me to the belief that bean boots are rather wider than you think. Also, my actual shoe size fits perfectly even with regular socks.
I am also impressed with the service, I ordered my bean boots that were backordered for 2 weeks and I get an email the next day saying that they have shipped! Awesome!
Frankly, I love all of L.L.Bean products because I think they are quality and very much worth it. Bean boots have been one of my favorite purchases so far! :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by threegirlz still undecided
These have been on back order for months and I was so excited to get them today. They are a beautiful red and well made. They look strange though because the tongue is stitched to the boot uppers and sticks out. So, when I laced them up and tried to tighten them the tongue bunches up and isn't even close to being snug against my leg. Not only does it look bad it feels bad too. I am tempted to cut it loose at the laces so it will lay flat. Are all bean boots made this way? I may have to return them because of the fit. I'm glad that so many people love them. I wanted to also.

I needed new boots so bad for our hard winter this year & was thrilled to find the black ones available & on sale after checking several times. They are so cute with pants, jeans & skirts. I tie them at the 2nd eyelets so there are larger "bows". The inner soles were out when I needed them but wearing wool socks worked surprisingly good in keeping my feet warm. With skirts I wear tights also when being outside a lot. The medium width fit perfect for my narrow feet with socks.

I have wanted these boots for so long. They keep selling out. This time I decided just to wait out the back order because I wanted them so much. The wait (quicker than they said) was WELL worth it. I love them. They feel great. Warm and Great during this rainy season. The color is precious. They are super cute with jeans. Just love them. Ill treasure them forever. And.... the way they are made I think they will LAST forever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JustAnotherNickname No cushioning, and interior color stained clothing
I bought the black boots which look absolutely great and are entirely waterproof. I wish I could end my review there, but I'm returning these boots for two big shortcomings. (1) There is scant, if any, cushioning (I noticed every little pavement bump and even the smallest stones). (2) Equally disheartening, I wore them one time with my tan pants tucked in and tan Smartwool socks, and the black from inside the boots stained the pants and the socks permanently. I'm greatly disappointed in the lack of comfort and now the added expense of having to replace pricey slacks and socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marnie13 Great gift for my granddaughter!
My granddaughter has a pair of the blue and brown boots which she loves and wears alot. She goes to school in Wisconsin and LL Bean boots are perfect for any kind of winter weather. When she saw the red boots she sent a picture home and said how much she liked them. I decided to order them for her. Luckily they were available in her size and I had them shipped directly to her at school. She called as soon as she got them to say thank you and to tell me how great they are. No one else on her campus has them in red but I guarantee you there will be many more girls wearing them very soon!
These boots are beautifully made and are withstanding the Wisconsin winter. A very good purchase. Good quality and good price!!!!!
