Rated 5 out of 5áby Timberman Great Boot
These boots are just what I was looking for. A great, tough outdoor boot with classic styling; not covered with dozens of seams to rip out.. If you are looking for a fine boot for any outdoor activity, this boot will fit the bill. Good foot bed inside, tough leather outside and comfortable right off. I'm ordering another pair of boots from this line.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SnakePleskin Best ankle boots made in the USA
I have owned these boots for many years(first pair) and they are very nice. It is difficult to find this type and style unless you are in true "farm/ranch country. They hold up, can be re soled and are just comfortable and feel good once broken in. The three hook and eyelet set up is the best and has been for 100 yrs! The style is timeless, and the use for these is whatever you can imagine. The cork sole is one of the best for comfort and normal wear because it does not track dirt, mud and debris...like a lug or vibram type does. That being said, they may not be the best for wilderness hiking in rugged areas. I use them for everyday wear, light hiking and yard, farm, ranch type work. I recommend them, however...I must say that the pricing is getting ridiculous...double what I paid for the first pair! While they are nice boots and made in the USA, the price puts them out of reach for many..It is what it is...

The boots fit true to size. I wear size 10M and L.L. Bean recommend to buy what size I normally wear. I am happy with my purchase and am super glad I got size 10 instead of another size.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tnpharmd excellent fit
Extremely comfortable shoe. Would recommend to everyone. Searched long and hard for a comfortable lace up boot and tried on many before I broke down and ordered on line. Am not disappointed!! Reviewers are right on about fit. It runs a little long so order 1/2 size shorter than what you would ordinarily wear. For me I would usually go up to a 10 but ordered my regular size 9&1/2. Fit great.

Rated 2 out of 5áby harleyrider2000 Worst boots I've ever owned.
To preface my review I would like to say I've been wearing work boots for construction more than 40 years so I have some experience. I bought these boots last year and hoped they would be as good as the reviews. I was sadly disappointed. Within the first two weeks the seam across the toe started to unravel. Not very damp proof after the seam goes.
The laces are a stiff material that stay tied just great, but they jump off the eye hooks as you work so count on tying them dozens of times during the day. OK, your thinking replace the laces already. $230 boots and now I have to buy laces too.
I like to wear my boots loose at the top and these boots won't allow that because of the hooks at the top. This is where the discomfort comes from. Even with better laces they will not stay on the hooks without pulling the laces up tight.
The positive is the soles last forever. Unfortunately, in my case, you get to throw them away before you can bear to wear them out. The leather is super tough, but weak stitching defeats that.
I live in Texas so thick socks are not an option for me so your experience in Maine might be better because of the cushion from a thicker sock. For me, I can't wait to get these off at the end of the day.
These could have been good for 2-3 years given the great soles and leather. This would have made them a good value even at $230, but even if I could take another year of the discomfort and the annoyance of tying them all day, I can't live with the toe flopping because the seam is almost totally gone. Safety issue, not to mention the embarrassment since I own the company. Time to find a new pair. Their are better boots at half the price so overall this is a two star deal.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JaseJ Great boot so far...
Got this boot in the mail about a week ago and couldn't be more pleased. I spoke with a rep about sizing before I ordered because I read other reviews that made me second guess what size I should get. The rep told me that if I had a pair of boots that currently fit well then I should stick with that size. So, that's what I did and my boots fit perfectly. I got a pair of 10.5 EE and I love the fit. They were a bit stiff the first few days, as expected, but the leather broke in quickly and they are already a really comfortable boot. They look great with jeans and are comfortable enough to wear all day. The stitching looks very durable and the laces are great. Seems like a quality boot that will last a while. Originally looked at other boots from quality brands but these were less expensive and seem to be just as good in quality and look great as a casual boot. Thanks L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby BootMan75 My second pair
This is my second pair of these boots. Pay attention to the reviews when they tell you to order a size smaller than you normally wear. I wear a 10 in other shoes but ordered a 9 as recommended and they fit great. They're quite a bit darker than my first pair but overall still a great pair of boots. I still wear my first pair when the wife lets me. They are few years old and don't look the best now but man are they comfortable. The new pair took about a week or so to break in and get better each day. Highly recommend these boots. A bit expensive but well worth it.
