Rated 5 out of 5 by OutdoorsMomFromPA Passed the Alaska test!
We just got a new pair of these boots for my son, before our weeklong adventure trip to SE Alaska. The temperate rainforest and activities really put these boots to the test. They were comfortable walking around town for a day, keeping his feet dry in the rain. They were comfortable to wear bush-wacking and creek-stomping, and when our skiff had wet landings. The thing that made me smile the most about my choice of LL Bean's boots over others, was watching how my son's boots performed compared to another boy's boots, who had pull-up handles punched into the sides of the boots, just below the top..... This in effect made the other boy's boots about 2 inches shorter, so that his boots got swamped through the handle-holes when creek-stomping, while my son's feet stayed nice and dry! (My son really liked the blue camo print, too!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetPepper Finally a Rain Boot to hold up to my son. . .
We LOVE these boots. I purchased my seven year old our 1st pair last fall for the beginning of the school year (as I always do). He hikes to my parents each morning to catch the school bus. In the past by Thanksgiving (and often earlier) he would be advising me of leaks -- others where NOT LLBean brand (shame on me). He has finally met his match! He wears these ALL the time and has yet to blow a hole in them. They are on the pricey side. But they do hold up to the challenge, so worth the investment. THANKS FOR AN AWESOME PRODUCT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by EgansMom Kid Boots on a Grown Up
I wear a women's size 7 or 7.5 and ordered the kid's 6. They are plenty big. Very loose in the ankles. (I did order the kids wellie warmers in xl and it seems to help with the loosesness.) I am short so I choose the kid boots becasue I was hoping the kid's boots would be a little shorter in height than the adult boots, and they are, but only slightly.
My only complaint is that one of the buckles refuses to stay buckled and look nice. I may try to super glue it in position.
Overall, I like the pattern and think they're really cute with skinny jeans or a skirt/dress, and since our winter here in Michigan has been more rainy than snowy, they've been very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Beware of the sizing!!
Much like the Bean boot, these are weird with the sizing. We bought ours at the store so we got the correct info but if you are buying online just be advised. We bought them 2 sizes up from my gals size. Added the warmers and they are good to go. Beautiful colors and now they can't wait for rain! :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by YellowDaisy I am bucking the buckles!
I absolutely love this boots for my son! I love the classic look and the natural green color. I spent extra to get the quality of the "Wellie" name...but I have not been happy with the buckle. It dosen't stay buckled and the boots look sloppy when worn. My son wore them for a long time, and the unbuckled buckle drove me crazy, becuase it jingled constantly too. Thankful LLBean truly stands by their product and after a year (or more) they still allowed me to return them for a replacement. I have been a long time customer of LLBean and will continue to be...this has been the first time ever I have been "unhappy" with something. I have been grateful for how they handled it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LoyalLLBeanCustomer1 Camo Wellie for Kid's
I purchased a pair of the Camo Wellies for my son at the Freeport retail store on March 19th (0GUG404120), and by the following weekend, the top surface of the boots was peeling off - seems to be concentrated over the dark brown spots in particular(?) Since my son will be tromping in the mud and puddles, will plan to keep boots anyways (I know all products are 100% guaranteed), but wanted to pass along the concern. Otherwise boots are great and my son wears them nearly every day now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karina313 Perfect accesory to rain boots
My daughter loves her Wellies. They fit well, keep her feet warm when splashing in puddles, and are very stylish. She receives compliments every time she wears them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommaotter Cute Wellies for kids/preteens!
I have an athletic-build 9-year old who is opinionated too...she loves the boots and they fit nicely (although they run a bit big)--at least they are not tight (she has a wide foot) and the boots are roomy so she can tuck in her jeans. No more wet socks and pants when she jumps in puddles or steps in the mud. Plus the colors are so fashionable, great to wear anywhere!
