Rated 1 out of 5 by AMERICANLONGHUNTER BEWARE THE LAST THIS BOOT WAS BUILT ON
If you have a EE wide foot, don't buy this model. It's built too narrow and because of its construction, it's inflexible. Bean's original BOA boot with the armor-plated look was perfect from the standpoint of properly fitting a wide foot. It featured a broad rounded toe and sufficient width across the ball of the foot. The new boot is built with minimum width across the ball of the foot and a semi-pointed toe. Just a lousy EE last.

This is my second pair and have been extremely pleased - comfortable, true to size and very durable. The BOA closure is the greatest innovation in shoes since the introduction of shoe laces.
Woild like to see these is in other than camouflage .

This is my second pair of boots using the BOA closure system purchased from LL Bean. I also have a pair of the original Technical boots. These are lightweight and comfortable from the very first day you put them on with virtually no break in time. It is far understated how the BOA system allows the boots to fit properly by tightening evenly from bottom to top allowing for ease of adjustment through the course of the day. Couple this with the classic quality of LL Bean and they have been a great purchase for me. I'm waiting for a version of the classic Maine Hunting Shoe to come out. I'll be the first one in line to buy a pair. Highly recommend any of these products for the fit, quality and usability right out of the box.

This is the 2nd boot I've purchased with the Boa system...great system...easy to tighten..adjust and remove...as the day progresses one may want to make slight adjustments in the fit...with this system it only takes seconds. Great walking/hiking boot....very comfortable fit

We ordered his regular size, which in this model turned out to be a bit small for him. We went up a 1/2 size and they fit great. He's a wildlife photographer who hates wet feet as he traipses around the woods photographing his prey. We'll be ordering a spare pair.

LIKE THE FIT VERY MUCH WHEN YOU TIGHTEN UP. WHAT IS REALLY NICE YOU CAN ADJUST IN SECONDS AND THE PRESSURE IS EVEN ON YOUR FOOT. GREAT SYSTEM.
HOWEVER I WISH THE LOOP AND THE BACK OF THE BOOTS WAS BIGGER SO YOU CAN GET YOUR FINGER IN EASIER. I HAVE AVERAGE SIZE DIGETS AND ITS HARD TO SLIP A FINGER IN TO PULL BOOT UP. CONSIDERING HAVING A BIGGER LOOP SEWED ON BUT DO NOT WANT TO IN-VALID WARRANTY

Rated 1 out of 5 by spiller BOA HIKING BOOTS
Right from the start I have to say these are a very heavy, clunky type hiking boot. They are stiff, run very narrow, and just plain hurt my feet. Tried them out for 2 weeks, never broke in or improved. Disapointed to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4wheel Quick, easy, comfortable!
I bought these for myself for Christmas, and my son tried them on and wanted a pair. They kept my feet warm and dry, expensive but seem to be high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smittysrevs2013 Awesome Boots that feel like Shoes!
I have arthritis in both my hands and it is difficult to tie/tighten boot laces. Whomever invented this BOA system is a genius! I absolutely love these boots. Thank you LLBean.
