Rated 2 out of 5 by ColdinMexico Disappointed
I got these boots in January to replace my rubber Bean's Wellies, which were falling apart. I use them mainly to clean the paddock every morning and evening and once in a while on a rainy day. It's not very labor intensive work, but by April the sides of the soles were separating from the boots. I wanted to love them - they are so pretty.
I'll be in Maine this summer, so I'll take them along to exchange for a pair of Bog boots.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Islandgirlforever Great fit & attractive
I have shopped at LLBean for over 30 years & this is the first time I am disappointed. I had LLBean wellies for many years that served me well. When they finally gave out I purchased a new pair with updated patterns..After a short time they leaked so I purchased another pair thinking it was a fluke..The second pair started leaking along the seam also, making my toes damp..I will be returning both pairs..I have horses & in the spring we have a lot of slush & mud so they must be waterproof, not just water-resistant..Hope LLBean goes back to the old solid rubber type..

Love these boots! When wearing, my feet are warm and day and surprisingly well supported. Even done a couple of "power walks" in them on a slushy day. Would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heatwheat Great rain boots
I love these! I got an 8 because I wear warm socks when necessary. I also chose the black ones and always get complements on them. I have had them since spring 2014 and have gotten a lot of walks in the rain and snow in them. I am just finding now that the seam along the toe line is peeling back and water occasionally dampens my toes. I will be taking these into the company store in Freeport to see if I can get a new pair of the same. I have never walked in a more comfortable rain boot so I will hope the seam stays put this time around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex721 comfortable and cute
I haven't had the chance to really walk around in them yet, but so far (trying them out in the house) they are quite comfortable. The lining is soft and they fit true to size. They're pretty flexible--everything above the ankle moves fluidly when I walk, so no chafing. They are a little above mid-calf and look like they would have good traction. And of course, the designs are pretty (I got the red one).

Rated 5 out of 5 by evageneva LL Bean Quality AND super cute, too!
After a tedious search for a good pair of rain boots (a necessity for the blustery, snowy weather that is ever-present in my hometown), I stumbled across these Wellies. I couldn't be happier with the quality. They were put to good use already after three weeks of purchase: a rainy fundraiser delivery, a stormy Halloween night, and a weekend camping trip in the Adirondacks. The waterproof guarantee is no joke, the rubber soles seem to deflect all things that would normally turn a pair of UGGs into a soggy mess! The rubber soles are strong and firm, and to my surprise, the fabric doesn't stain as I thought it might. The fit is a bit wide, but I can't expect much as a skinny-legged, size 9 woman. They stay upright and don't make the dreaded 'Hunter boots sound' that is echoed throughout the city in miserable weather. Many friends and strangers have complimented the boots, and I have even led a few to ordering some for themselves.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the LL Bean quality I expected from these boots. They are functional on every level and the price is acceptable and understandable. I would highly recommend these boots as a lover of functional yet stylish outdoor gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Looking Forward to Wearing These
I ordered the black wellies and I'm looking forward to wearing them. I ordered a 9 (my usual size). They fit a bit large, however an 8 would be too small. I plan on wearing them with heavy socks and an extra inner sole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBeanShop2 Seams separating
I am terribly disappointed in these LL Bean Wellies. The seams are separating along the foot edge after only a couple of months. My prior pair of old LL Bean Wellies lasted for YEARS. Please bring back the quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OutdoorGirrrl wet feet!
I really want to love these boots! They are adorable and comfortable... After I bought the first pair and was convinced they were leaking, I read other reviews. Since there weren't many complaining of leakage, I decided to exchange them for a new pair and try again. My feet still get wet in the new pair... I am going to try them one more time- just with the hose in the yard- to make sure it's not a sweaty feet issue... But I'm afraid I'll have to take advantage of the return policy yet again... :( They are so cute though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BristolDeb Comfort and function
More supple than other "wellies" that I have worn. Comfortable and waterproof and attractive. Sized perfectly.
Since the material is not as stiff as other boots I have owned, I expect them to last years.
