L.L. Bean does not fail to impress. The boots are just as described. The turn around on this order was the best I've experienced -- and I web shop every week.
Truly exceptional. I'll be back

Great look and feel. Kept feet warm and dry during the cold rainy fall. I also purchased the gortex liner to use for the winter months which was a great idea with the frigged temps we had. Does well in all conditions. The laces are pretty stiff in the beginning, but loosen up with wear. Plus you get two sets with this pair!

I live in the ever-changing conditions of the midwest, subzero temps with 11'' of snow one day and flashfloods from the immediate thaw the next. Going from 'Artic Explorer to Noah' in 48 hours demands a quality versatile boot, both light and agile as well as tough as nails !! I researched many boots extensively (both local midwest outfitters & popular shoe internet sites) then discovered Bean's webpage and was intrigued by <hand crafted,guaranteed,made in america> with a history of satisfaction since 1912. I phoned and asked questions, to my first surprise spoke to a human, then to my second surprise coherent friendly unrushed answers to all my questions (did I mention hand crafted & guaranteed) ! I couldn't be more impressed, I couldn't be happier with Diane and the Bean Boot team (Diane, I owe you chocolates, just sayin').
Bean Boots & "Life", I will no longer go through one with out the other!!

GREAT BOOTS... WITH A EXTRA PAIR OF SOCKS THE FIT IS GOOD. OVER ALL GOOD VALUE. LOOKING FORWARD TO YEARS OF DRY WARM FEET IN THE WINTER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAA3 Great right out of the box
I have only had these boots now for a little over a week, but, in that time, I've worn them every day, for very long stretches. They were comfortable straight out of the box. Perhaps a little stiff, but not terribly so. I certainly had no blisters, as I normally do with boots. As other reviewers noted, the size runs a bit large. I normally wear an 11.5 or 12, and I ordered an 11. They fit perfectly with thick socks, and they also are comfortable with my normal socks. If these boots last as well as everyone says, I will be one happy customer.

These were a great gift and my husband loved them. Came in very handy as had a blizzard today and they kept him Warm and allowed him to stay out in 15degree weather for many hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cambr1dge And then these boots landed on the earth
Probably the best footwear I own hands down. They run a full size large, but I find I need that extra room with winter socks. I'm a tweener wi my hooves. Order two pairs and decide which to keep for yourself. These get compliments everywhere I go and no one believes they're made in Maine. Most don't believe they're LL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperPennsyl Great looking boots
These boots are a lot darker in person, and gradually get the beautiful reddish-orange distressing with wear. I had to size down 1.5 sizes and this fits fairly well, just a little bit of extra room. I love the look and feel of the boots. They are extremely stiff at first, and need to be broken in for two weeks or so. My left ankle bone hurts when I lace them too tight, but that gradually passes when the boots break in. I had to return my first pair because the laces frayed every inch or so, and the back leather on this inside came undone and caused blisters. I love these boots, especially the red rubber on the bottom, and would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperPennsyl Best Bean Boots
I absolutely love these boots. They are incredibly comfortable after the short break in period (around a week). The leather becomes so soft and supple, it's amazing. It starts out a very dark brown, and with wear starts to become more reddish/orange. They are slightly aggravating trying to put on, but that's expected with a 10" boot. They also do bleed a little bit when brand new, so I would wear socks you don't mind getting stained for the first few days or so.
