Rated 1 out of 5 by Allen1988 One problem
These shoes are excellent in every way but one. After two weeks, the sole comes apart and I don't know whether it has something to do with the glue they used but the craftsmanship of the shoe itself is fantastic. Just the sole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AdirondackBob Great Everyday Boot
I needed a boot for daily winter wear that looked a bit more upscale but would last. These are perfect. Right from the box they fit well and that can be a challenge for me. I have worn them every day and there was virtually no break in needed. My only complaint is the the laces were too short to double knot. I suspect the size 13's I ordered were beyond the range for the standard laces, easy fix. If you like 'em, get 'em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WildBlackthorn Great fit right out of the box!
Let me preface this by saying I don't often buy footwear online unless I've dealt with the same make and style before, but seeing as the return policy is so generous and hassle-free, I gave it a shot. I wear a 9.5E in another leading brand, but given the choice between D and EE, I was unsure at first. Given the reviews that in some cases these ran a little large (also accounting for break-in), I initially went with a 9.5D. Unfortunately for me, it did not work out the first time. Once you understand how your foot fits to the Munson last, it's a lot easier to get it right the first time. Once I exchanged these for a 9EE, they fit fantastic right out of the box. There is some stiffness and a little discomfort around the collar and hooks where I laced up tight, but it's to be expected and I see these breaking in nicely over the next week or two. Excellent buy and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Best pair of boots I've owned thus far. Looks better with age. Excellent quality. I recommend getting one size down as they are rather a bit large for the size that I normally wear.

I ama bus driver out in all kinds of weather. These boots stay dry and are sturdy enough to be out in the elements. Best boots I have ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meke Nice Comfortable Waterproof Boot
My favorite boot. I have bought two of these now, and they are great, water proof, and super comfortable.
Only issue might be, they can squeak regularly on freshly cleaned floors. Maybe that's just me.

First Chippewa I've had. When I got it right off the bat I noticed an extra layer for the heels inside the boots, which made me extremely happy. All the other boots that I've had wore off their heels (from inside) pretty fast, and made them kinda useless. I was always asking myself why they don't put a different texture for the heels, now it is here. I had this boot for about a week, so far so awesomeeee

I used the boots pretty hard... or started to at least.
I do a lot of nature photography which requires that I hike out pretty far in the woods, through mud, and sometimes stand in water for a while. Everything about the boots was working great (they were comfortable, were 100% water proof (added DWR), and stylish) untill about two weeks after I bought them.
I went to clean them and realized the soles were ripping off on both boots. If these boots did not cost $250 I would not have been so surprised, but the do cost $250, and the soles were ripping off (presumably from all the squatting I do to steady my camera and all). I am disappointed, but willing to give them another try. LL Bean customer service was helpful and is sending a new pair as a replacement.
Long and short: I think these boots are really high quality, but make sure you keep an eye on the soles.
