My wife got these for me do Christmas because I asked for them. I was so impresses with how great these boots are. The leather is nice and soft right from the start. I have been wearing them a couple days and already they are breaking in nice. I am a videographer and I wear my bean boots at all my shoots. They are super comfortable even when I am on my feet all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasoninTexas Wicked Good Bean Boots
Having lived in Maine for four years, I never got around to buying a pair of Bean boots. With that, I decided that I needed to own a pair and purchased the 12" Leather Maine Hunting Shoes from the Signature Bean Collection. The boots are extremely well-made and have a wonderful fit. I usually wear an 11 1/2, so I stepped down to an 11 using regular socks and the fit is perfect.
I'm looking forward to years of service from these boots, although they won't be my last pair to purchase. I've already got my eye on two other pair in the collection.
Very classy shoe that is well-made (in the USA!) and looks nice. Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by oghaki boots leak at seams
This is the third pair of Bean boots I have owned. One pair is around 40 years old. The second is around 10 years old. The third pair was this signature model. I have fished, hunted, and hiked through many different areas with the first two pair, and never had a leaking problem. The first pair of the I got leaked after standing in a stream for about a minute. It leaked at the seam and seemed to be wicking through the stitches. LL Bean sent another pair for free. I tested them in a stream as soon as I got them. They leaked in about a minute. Bean sent me a third pair. This time, I tested the new pair under similar conditions, and they leaked in about a minute. afterwards, I tested each of my older pairs. Neither leaked even after 10 minutes. I love the quality of the leather, but I need my boots to stand up to a few minutes in a stream without leaking. The leaking was very unpleasant in the cold when I was away from a place to dry my feet and keep warm.

We bought these for our trip to Iceland knowing that both style and versatility was important. We hiked the mountains, fjords, volcanoes, and glaciers with them, and they held up as well as protected us from the elements. I even received one comment from our hiking guide.

I purchased these boots on a recent trip to Freeport.
I had the occasion to wear them a couple of times during Hurricane Irene as I traveled from Bar Harbor, ME through New Hampshire, Vermont and Connecticut returning home to New York.
They kept my feet warm and protected from the extremely wet storms.
Fantastic boots! And, they look good too!
