Rated 1 out of 5 by QueenMD Too hard to get on!
How does L.L. Bean make a boot that is so poorly designed that I can?t even get it on?
I struggled to get each boot on for a good minute before I could go outside to clear snow/ice from our driveway. The shaft of the boot has no give to accommodate a foot being inserted. The texture on the inside of the boot just grabs the fabric of the socks. After stomping and pulling and twisting my knee, they were on. The leather of the boot?s tongue is so stiff that it bent inward, hurting the front of my ankles. When I got outside, my feet got cold very quickly, and I was wearing 2 pairs of socks! Getting the boots off was almost as bad.
The next day I had to wear the boots again to get to work, as I had no other snow boots. The struggle was just as intense and unpleasant as the day before, and my feet just as cold (with 2 pairs of socks). That afternoon, to leave work, I couldn?t even get the boots on! I decided it was better to come home in old running shoes than struggle another minute with these ridiculous boots.

I have had my boots since summer and am just now getting to wear them a lot and absolutely love them!! I wear a women's size 10 and ordered a 9 and they fit perfectly I can wear them with boot socks (semi thick) and they are perfect but I also bought bean boot socks (very very thick) for women and they keep my feet super warm and are perfect. I highly recommend these boots. I am a college student and walk to class and when it rains or snows they are warm and super comfortable and keep my feet dry! I have a hard time finding boots that don't rub blisters and these literally took one day around the house to break in and I've loved them ever since. Buy them!!

Just received my back-ordered boots today, put them on, and have been wearing them all day. They are very comfortable. I ordered a size down as others commented that they run large. I ordered a narrow and it is truly narrow! Thank you LLBEAN. I might consider getting a half size up next time to accommodate large bulky socks. These fit perfectly with normal socks.

I took these out recently to wear in the rain and snow. They are still in great condition despite a lot of wear. They look great too. I would recommend these to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by restinginnc Won't work without them
I'm establishing an orchard which requires walking through muddy, uneven surface, in addition to brush and rocks. Sometimes I wear them with socks sometimes I don't. These are my go-to boots, and I just leave them in the car.
About 2 times a month I wash them off well, without wetting the interior, let them dry and apply a little boot polish. The appearance after almost one year of use 2-3 times a week is "admirable wear". That is, worn in color and wrinkles, but providing character.

I have these in the red special edition, and they are awesome. Not only do they look good, they kept my feet warm and dry during our last rainstorm. I got a full size down from my usual size and probably needed a wide but the medium width works good with thin socks, which are what I usually wear anyways. High quality boots and did I mention they are really cute and stylish? I'd like a pair in brown too! Once you find the size that fits you can't go wrong with these boots.

My aunt purchased a pair of these boots over 10 years ago and wore them every winter, as they wore, LL Bean repaired them for her. When she passed, they were left to me, and i swear by these boots! I've never owned a warmer, drier, more comfortable boot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by burtlakeboater So disappointed....
I was so excited to order these boots...they are SO CUTE...but dog gone it...they fit SO TIGHT and were SO DIFFICULT to put on & take off...I knew they would never work for me, so I had to send them back. I was SO DISAPPOINTED in the fit. If you are a 15 year old 100 lb. teenage girl with skinny feet they would work...but as an average grown woman....these boots run way too small for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by canadianwetfeet Ladies with wider feet/calves
First time order from Canada. So pleased with product and service-just excellent! I have a wider foot and calves so I was unsure of sizes. Here is what I found: my feet measure 9 inches long and at their widest points across 3 7/8 inches. My ankle/low calve is about 10 inches around. I wear a size nine in other shoes. A size 8 WIDE are very comfortable. The measurements of the outside of the boot itself are:10 1/4 long and 4 inches across, and the ankle area opens to app. 14 inches max depending on lacing. Bear in mind the footbed inside will be a touch smaller. What great phone service as well if you have any questions. Don't hesitate to order: all you Vancouverites with damp feet!
