Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

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 5 by 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 5 by 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.

I ordered these boots the minute I saw them. The quality is spot on for traditional LLBean. The waxed canvas is beautiful. The recommendation for ordering a size down is absolutely correct! I normally wear around a size 7 depending on shoe manufacturer, and I ordered a size 6 (based on LLBeans suggestion). Perfect sizing... I'm bummed I have to wait another 3 months to use them :(

Love this boot! Very stylish and comfortable right out of the box! My regular size fit me perfectly with enough room for a heavier sock in colder weather!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaineGirlinNYC Disappointed
I love the look of these boots, but the sizing is off. I ordered as instructed but the 7 was too big overall. Returned and ordered the 6. When the 6 arrived, the left boot was much smaller than the right. Bean sent another pair of 6 boots but the inside was not constructed well. I would have ended up with cuts under both my ankle bones the first time I wore them. Sadly, I had to return them. I might try one more pair...

Rated 5 out of 5 Durable, high quality and nice looking
Pictures don't do these justice. The waxing creates a rich medium brown/olive drab, and the rubber sole compliments. They repel water like a dream. They're not too warm (I live in Florida) but I can see how a pair of socks could make them all-weather perfect. I'm 5'3", medium foot, they come up under my knee. Size is exactly as described, I'm an 8, bought a 7, fits perfectly. I'll be wearing them camping in the winter, hiking in spring, and to a wedding in Michigan this fall. SO versatile!

I have been looking at these boots for many months and decided to order them when they were discounted 15%. They couldn't fit better! I did go down a size - I normally wear a size 9 and ordered the 8. They fit perfectly and look fabulous. I ordered the "marsh" color and it is slightly darker than the photograph on-line, which is fine with me. Great style, L.L.Bean!
