Rated 4 out of 5áby gotttabme Half sizes
I ordered this boot in a size 9 and had to return it for being too long. I usually take a size 8 1/2. It's a shame that half sizes aren't offered, it is a handsome, very well made boot and I wish it fit my feet. I'll keep watching for half sizes to order in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Beanwalker Glorious, glorious outdoor boots!
These are my new favorite boots, and I expect I'll be wearing them in all but the coldest or hottest weather. My boots have to work hard. They go outside into the desert and dry hills, and have to navigate rough ground and stickery bushes. They go up hill and down dale, and over the river and through the woods.These are lightweight, waterproof, breathable, good traction, and extremely comfortable. They run a little big; I wear a 10, and if there were a 9.5 it would probably be a perfect fit. So I wear Bean's ragg wool socks and they're just right. I can wear my pants tucked in or over. It took about a day to break them in.
Like all leather boots they scuff, and there is an easy remedy for that-- it's called shoe polish :) Keep them buffed with a good-quality hard polish and they will develop a nice mellow glow.

Just returned from a 5 day archery elk hunt in Colorado, Brought these boots as a back-up pair - wore them the first morning and never used my other boots. Perfect fit (size 9) with one pair of socks. No break in needed. Kept my feet dry hiking in snow at higher elevations & in wet grass & through small streams below. My husband was jealous.

I can't say enough about these uplander boots ... comfortable out of the box, sturdy construction with the softest feel. I wore them out for a long muddy hike on their first day and I stayed dry and comfortable all day. I normally wear an 8.5 so I first ordered a size 9 as the sizing directions indicated ... these were huge on me. I returned them for the 8 and the fit is perfect with midweight socks.

I have had these boots two months now and I have nothing but good things to say about them! I ordered my regular size and was disappointed when they did not come in a wide width but when i received them they fit perfectly! Right out of the box they felt like comfy slippers. No breaking in period. Great support! Great traction! I will buy them again most definitely and I have referred them to any one who asks where I got such great looking boots. Thanks LL Bean for yet another wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Wandersfar Great boots.
I ordered these boots for fall winter and spring hiking hunting and as a work boot. They fit great. Did not take long to break in. They look great under a pair of jeans so you can even wear them to places you normally would change out of a boot to go to. Waterproof, tough, comfortable - I am a 7.5 to 8 and the 7 fit great with medium weight hiking socks. The leather is supple and very good looking. I think a all leather upper in this boot would be nice too. Love them

Rated 3 out of 5áby mandsfarm Great boots ...But
I loved these boots from the moment I took them out of the box. They fit great and great support. But.. They keep falling apart. LL bean is great replacing them quickly at no charge but I spent the extra dollars because I was tired of buying shoes at the big box store that only lasted 6 months. I am now waiting for pair #4 to be delivered. This pair lasted exactly 3 months before the sole separated from the shoe. The cheap shoes would at least last 6 months.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SouthMass12 Do NOT go half size UP
I usually wear shoes and boots in size 7 and 1/2. After reading all the reviews, I decided to order size 7. And it was the right choice. The boots allow a thick sock. Though, I do not need it for spring time, I wear good substantial cotton socks with these boots. I would recommend these boots to people who value comfort while walking. I do not have to go hunting nor mountaineering like some ladies describe in their reviews. But my feet feel very warm, cozy, and comfortable during dog walking three times a day around the town. I would advise women to buy winter and fall/spring boots from LL Bean's. It was my first cold season in the North. I compared wearing boots from the department store with wearing boots from LL Beans. I am reporting to you the result: Never in my entire life did my feet feel so warm and comfortable as they did during 2012-2013 cold seasons in LL Bean boots (thank you to the company). I must also ad that years ago I bought lots of tops from this company; I used them and abused them, and they are still "well and alive" and I am still wearing them all. Hope, years after today I will be able to write same words about the way LL Beans footwear lasts. I really hope for that.
4 stars instead of 5 for I had to exchange my first pair of boots for they had knots on the sole stitches and within that pair of size 7 both, one boot had a shorter sole....

áby savvygal Great boot, instantly comfy, scuffs fairly easily
It's true: these boots require zero breaking in. I wear a 9.5 normally and chose the 9 as I rarely wear thick socks. It may be a tiny bit short, but a bigger size would have been too big. I wore them hiking recently (seen here) with a medium weight merino sock. This was the first time I had worn these boots at length, and I had NO problems! My one complaint is that they do scuff fairly easily--as in, when you kick the hunks of snow off your tires. For hunting or hiking--who cares? I did plan, however, to wear them with skinny jeans and cord skirts for a quirky look. It might have worked, but now with the scuffs, I'm afraid it would just look sloppy. So they will sheerly be outdoor boots, but hey, I think that was the idea in the first place.

I was looking for a nice hiking boot. So far I have done a 5k hike first time out. These are very comfy boot. I take a size 8 and have a wider foot. The size I found was just a bit larger. However I was able to put in my orthotic insert and a medium sock and the fit was perfect.
Looking forward to many k's of great walks in these boots. I contacted LLBean to get the correct product to put on them. I was guided to the best product for the boot.
