Rated 5 out of 5áby turtleflier Great Boots; great fit, great weight
They're so much fun to wear. I've paired them with skinny jeans, leggings and skirts. Not too heavy; even in Louisiana I've been able to wear them already.
The only thing that would have made them even better would have been if the grey/black combo hadn't been sold out when I went to buy mine.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Ashevillian Not what I was hoping for
I really really wanted to love these boots, but back to Freeport they go. Sizing was good, as described, but the "waxed" appearance looked like scuffs and wear & tear to me, I didn't like that look.
While the calves are very generous, the laces weren't. I ran out of lace before I reached the topmost 2 eyelets.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LMS1 Wonderful tall boots
These boots are wonderful. I was worried when I got them that they would be too long on me (I am 5'2"/62 inches/157.48 centimeters) but the come comfortably below my knee. They are a bit of a hassle to lace up and then unlace to take off, but they do not feel restrictive the way other rain boots do, and I was easily able to move in them. I would highly suggest these boots.

Rated 4 out of 5áby luluson love but a little snug
I haven't had a chance to use them in the snow or rain yet but I think they will be fine and hopefully warm. I love them on but are kinda a pain to get off you feet because you really have to loosen the laces a lot. I have wide feet and the left foot is a little snug in spots.

Rated 5 out of 5áby outdoorbookworm great product.
I LOVE these boots. I wear these boots all day. They are comfortable, and a great fit. I normally wear a 10, but ordered a 9 & the fit is perfect. They are warm for normal days or to wear during rain. For colder weather or to wear during snow I added the fleece liners and they keep your feet just right temperature. I find they are fast to lace up & the laces stay tied. This is a perfect product in every way. I intend to order another pair they are that nice of boot. This is one product L.L Bean got right. Love everything about these boots:)

Rated 5 out of 5áby AnnetteMc Stunning Black Boots!
As a happy owner of the brown 16" Waxed Canvas Maine Hunting Shoes, I was excited to purchase the black boots during the Signature footwear sale. They are a stunning, unwashed deep black canvas with contrasting brown stitching. They look beautiful with skirts and leggings or tights and jeans too! I wear an 8.5 and ordered the 8 which allows more room to wear thicker socks and the extra space allows for the shearling liners to keep your feet very warm!

Purchased as replacement for knee high mukluks made in northern MN which are also a pain to get on and have really poor customer service options for repair and none for sole replacement. Unlike the mukluks these fit perfectly right out of the box-were used for and afternoon of messy fall clean up work in the garden and felt great. The sizing advice was correct ( I usually wear 7.5 and ordered size 6 to wear with lightweight/ non cushioned socks). They work really well with skinny legged jeans. And yes, you are going to have to spend some time putting these on and off but it is worth it! Unusual to find something that has some style that you can actually get dirty/work in and that has a great customer service/repair options.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AnnetteMc Gorgeous Boots!
These are the greatest boots! The materials are high quality with a very comfortable fit. I wear a half size and ordered only 1 size down and the fit is great. These boots look great with skinny jeans, leggings, and skirts!

Rated 4 out of 5áby katie816 Sizing seems alright, but hits instep
I purchased these in a size 9 because I was told they are sized big to allow for thick or doubled up socks. I wear a size 10 in L.L. Bean shoes. The 9 seems to fit alright in terms of length and width, but the top edge of the rubber below the laces digs into my instep. I would not say I have a very high instep as this is not a problem in other shoes. The rubber just doesn't stretch. I'm going to re-order in a 10 and hope that it buys me more room for my instep, even if it means I have to buy some thicker socks.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LuxtonLake Great Boots Terrible Laces
I bought these boots a year ago, and they have become a staple in my fall and mild winter wardrobe. I get compliments on them all the time. They are classic and unusual at the same time. They do run big, so I find myself doubling my socks when I wear them, and they take some time getting on and off with all those laces. My one complaint is the boot laces that come with them. Within a few wearings, the laces started to "pop," meaning the white interior structure of the laces broke through the brown/green skin and it seems every time I wear them, the laces "pop" in more and more places. Now after a year they have white loops sticking out all over. The quality of the laces does not match the quality of the boot. And finding replacement laces for such unusual boots is nearly impossible. I plan to contact LL Bean to see if they have improved the quality of the laces and if they will replace them. Other than that, love these boots.
