Rated 5 out of 5 by Felinefool Great Winter Boot!
Met all expectations for LL Bean Quality!
I do not want to rush winter, by buying these now, but last winter was so bad I wore my knock brand boots out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJW6513 Excellent except for one minor problem
I waited until after winter to write this as I wanted to see how they worked out. I bought these for the days with more snow on the ground and for shoveling and the low-cut ones for days with less snow on the ground. They are excellent - they kept my feet warm, were completely waterproof and worked very well in the slush and snow. They have held up very well so far. They cleaned up very well and looked great - more than one person asked me "Where did you get those? I want a pair!" The ONLY problem I encountered on both type of lace-up snow sneakers was that the raised LL BEAN logo on the tongue of the shoe fell right where I tied my shoes and caused the laces to untie every time. I had to double tie my laces in order for the laces to stay tied. Minor problem, easily solved and the quality and comfort and price outweighed that little problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ImABirder They almost make me look forward to winter!
I ordered these boots after having icy cold feet all winter from wearing improper footwear. Now granted I have not truly tested these boots in cold weather yet, but I can tell from trying them on that they will be very warm. They are unbelievably comfortable. I got the 7 wide, and the fit is perfect with a winter sock. I got the black ones, and they will look great with jeans. My only concern is how they will look once they get covered in salt, which will inevitably happen. Hopefully they will clean up well. I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 because I do not know yet how easy they will be to clean, or how durable they will be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MinnesotaMaggie Comfy and Warm
These arrived during the Polar Vortex in January , and I have worn them every day since. They are super comfy and keep my feet comfortably warm, even in the long, miserable Minnesota winter. I have a wide foot so I ordered the wide, and they fit perfectly!. Don't expect full ankle mobility - these are a high top and will give you a great deal of ankle support, but they are more of a flexible boot than a sneaker. My only complaint, and a trivial one, is that the laces are too long!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KAdams Excellent boot
This is an excellent boot/sneaker. I have worn them almost every day since they arrived. They are lightweight and comfortable while also being warm and waterproof. I couldn't be happier with these shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by loafergirl Just don't fit right
Although these are the same size as other Bean footwear I have, the just don't fit right, feeling too wide and with little or no support. Definitely not like a good pair of athletic shoes. I'm planning to return them.

This product proves to be the best snow sneaker I have ever encountered. I have been wearing the same boots for my job for years until I found these . I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mom32051 Like Snow Tires For Your Feet
We have had very mild winters in recent years in southeast Michigan so, when we got our first major snow storm in early December, and I hadn't ordered my new boots yet, I almost didn't bother because I was afraid I wouldn't get much use out of them. I did order them though and, needless to say, I have pretty much worn them every day since I got them as we have already had the 2nd snowiest season on record and still have another 4 weeks of possible snowfalls.
These boots do exactly what they say they do. I have been tromping through 10 inch snowfalls, and 3 inch deep puddles, and my feet have stayed warm and dry throughout. And they are very comfortable.
But, even more important, they provide excellent sure footedness. They really are like having snow tires for your feet. I dare to go where others fear to tread and I haven't slipped once. I can walk confidently on snow covered sidewalks and parking lots and it feels like I am walking on bare concrete.
I highly recommend these boots to anyone who worries about slipping in snow, and who is looking to keep their feet warm and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel421 Warm!!
I'm a para transit driver so I'm out in all kinds of weather in Colorado. I bought these boots for the water resistance and the warmth. So far they have kept to their word. They aren't so warm that they make your feet sweat, which is nice. The only thing is the high tops need to be broken in. They rubbed a lot on the first day. Other than that I love them!!!! Great Item!!!

Kept my feet warm and dry when shovelling a wet snow. Took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a 1/2 size bigger and I have plenty of room for thick socks. The fit around the ankles took some getting used to but I like the extra support.
