Absolutely blown away by the quality of these boots. I think they're the best I've owned. Certainly the most comfortable work boots I've owned, almost no break-in time. Gorgeous leather, with a slightly red cast in the light, though a rich, deep brown is probably the best description. The laces also have a wonderful waxed feeling, very satisfying. Highly recommended.

The Katahdin are well loved by a lot of people for a very good reason: They're probably THE best pairs of leather boots you can get for the price.
The new plain toe version of the Katahdin are an amazing addition to any wardrobe. Offered in a versatile burgundy shade, these boots just get prettier with time. Truly an outstanding and worthwhile product from LLB. I'll probably rock these for years to come.
The boots are quite heavy because of its construction and the Vibram rubber outsole but it's a small price to pay for additional support and stability in the snow; I live in Quebec where ice is your worst enemy but it's really no match for these.
I usually wear 8.5D but had to small down to 8D because they're somewhat large. However, breaking in them was painless and has been done in a week and they're getting even more comfortable everytime I put them on.
Get ready to get compliments; the Katahdin are highly eye catching and rightly so.

Have I mentioned yet that I love these boots? They are absolutely beautiful and super comfortable.
In most shoes, I wear a 13, but I bought these in a 12 and they were perfect with mid-weight socks. They might be a little tight with heavyweight socks, but not uncomfortably so.

These boots are exactly what I wanted. American made, comfortable fit, excellent quality and look! I would recommend these shoes to everyone looking for solid work shoes that can be worn all day and night.

These are really nice looking "work boots". The leather is very thick but pliable, so breaking them in has not been difficult. They were very stiff at first but loosened up enough in the first day or so to be comfortable. They keep getting more comfortable each time I wear them. While they are ruggedly built, and obviously not dress shoes, they seem to be a dressier alternative to the cap-toe version. I've been wearing them to the office and around on weekends.
I bought these in my normal shoe size. I wear them with LLBean's lightweight Cresta hiking socks or mid-weight Chino socks. If I wore thinner socks, then they might be a half-size too big. But I prefer to have room in the toe-box. I also have narrow feet and while these aren't narrow by any means, they fit my feet better than most D width shoes.
