Rated 5 out of 5 by BunkumBum Great looking boots
I used to wear Chukka boots a lot but had not seen any offered for awhile. Then I saw these at a great price, they were even on sale, and that plus the free shipping sold me. They fit great and are so comfortable. The perfect casual boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainBoy1 Super comfortable and very stylish
This is a great shoe. I wear it anywhere I can. The fit is perfect and the style is current. I don't know why I waited as long as I did to make my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momnomore Perfect for this winter
Purchased for my son, a college student, and he loves them. Claims he barely feels the cold or ice when he wears these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oyaron Much better than reviews
When looking to replace my old desert boots I was disappointed that these shoes did not have gum rubber soles. However I ordered them and found the fit to be good and the shoes comfortable. I have worn them on pavement, dirt, and sandy beaches with none of the anticipated problems. The price is reasonable, and the 3-hole lace arrangement is an improvement over the original 2-hole approach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 509Airdale Great, Right Out of the Box
These chukka boots just arrived, and I tried them right out of the box, still cold from the UPS shipping, and they are delightful.
The size is just right on target, they are comfortable and - maybe because I am used to heavy boots this winter - they are light as air on my feet.
Having tried them on with moderately heavy winter socks, I have no doubt they will be comfortable with lighter weight, or no, socks.
They look great, they feel great, what's left? We'll see how they wear.

I began wearing desert boots in the early 50's, always had 2 pairs;
found these at L.L. BEAN at a reasonable price. They arrived quickly
in good packaging. As soon as I tried them on, I knew I would need
orthotic inserts, as the sole offers no cushioning. I returned them & ordered a size larger, received the replacement order quickly, and the inserts work fine. I replaced the shoelaces, as those included
cannot be easily tightened; the eyelets are too small. The color will be easy care - and I get comments about how sharp these desert boots are, especially from younger folks. A good, solid buy which I know I'll enjoy. I'd like to see a lighter color offered as well.
Thanks, L.L. BEAN

Rated 3 out of 5 by Debjulie Not the Best
Well, I usually love L.L.Bean shoes. These are not the same color as pictured, they are a darker cement color. Also, they were extra long, and had virtually no padding on the bottom. I could feel the floor when I walked in them. I'm afraid I will be returning these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oldguy62 bad shoestrings
I'm a big LL Bean fan but these shoes have one problem. The shoestrings. They are to short no room left to tie the knot as well as much as the eyelets are to small for sure. You will be buying new shoestrings for sure a lot more of them because of the abrasion from the tight eyelets while walking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DougNYC Good value
These are soft and comfortable and seem like they will last. They are slightly narrower than average but I think they will slowly stretch and conform.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dodd10x Comfortable, runs large
Received these as a Christmas gift. Love the look, and so does my girlfriend. They were comfortable while walking throughout NYC the first time I wore them but I must have had thicker socks or they stretch out because they are now loose on me and this is the third time I've worn them. I'm going to have to only wear these in cooler weather with decent socks. I'd go half a size to a full size smaller if I were purchasing again.
