Rated 3 out of 5áby uptowngirl852 Warm and fuzzy, but...
Not quite sure about everyone's difficulty with putting their boots on... but anyway, I bought these at the LL Bean store, and while they are definitely warm and great for shoveling snow, I'm not sure I'd recommend them for walking too far. On the right boot, the shaft sort of collapsed where it meets the shoe part, and it bends in and has given me awful blisters :( I've tried pulling the shaft up, re positioning my foot, etc. Not sure if it's a manufacturer defect since it only happened on one boot, but I'm not sure if I can keep wearing these when one heel is in pain!

Rated 4 out of 5áby stinkbug Fabulous Boots
I read the reviews and was glad they made suggestions. I did order a 1/2 size larger and they fit perfect. The ankles are very nicely supported and that is a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5áby railtrailuser Just right
After reading the reviews about the difficulties with putting these boots on, I went ahead and ordered a half size larger. As I was waiting for them to arrive, I began worrying about whether I should have ordered them at all. On the suggestion of another reviewer, I even went out and bought a long-handled shoe horn, in anticipation of problems. The boots arrived yesterday. Shoe horn in hand, I carefully placed my foot in the boot. What do you know? No problem sliding into them unaided! Since I had just a lightweight sock on, I'm going to keep the shoe horn on hand, just in case wearing a boot sock proves to be more difficult. For now though, I am pleasantly surprised and very glad I ordered these boots!

Rated 2 out of 5áby UsuallyDoes Too tight to pull on
After reading reviews, I ordered a 1/2 size larger to give room for slipping on. Great looking boot, nice features, but I was unable to get it on my foot and had to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jaysboots Comfortable and dry
These boots are great! I saw them on sale and needed new boots. Bought them, wear them, love them. I think they do run a bit narrow but I have skinny feet so they work well. They keep my feet dry but not super warm. This may be my issue though since my feet are always cold. The one thing I did notice is the support behind the ankle. It is very hard and not too flexible at first. I would bend it with my fingers to loosen it up a bit and that seemed to help along with the break in period.

Rated 1 out of 5áby jersey1234 size -runs very small
I either rec'd a defective pair or the sizing runs very small- So small, I was unable to get my foot into the boot. Something is very wrong
Bean did offer to replace these- I however decided to buy a different pair. As I could not possible guess on what size I should order

Rated 4 out of 5áby lotsofboots Comfortable, waterproof and great fit!
Thanks LL Bean for making this cute little boot. I have to say I was tempted to return them as they are very hard to get into having no zipper. I finally got my feet into the boots and walked around the house as I was doing chores. I took them off and put them back on 3 times until I decided to use my husbands long handle shoe horn WOW! what a difference this makes now I just slip them on and off with ease using the horn. These are alot like putting a pair of cowboy boots on a little hard to get into but once you do you love the comfort. I hope LL Bean continues to make these wonderful, comfortable and warm boots but please add a zipper and these will receive a 5 star rating. I wear a size 6 and feel these are a true fit.

Rated 5 out of 5áby walkingonsunshine Love These Boots!
I ordered a pair of these boots in black. They were very hard to put on, so I sent them back & ordered a half size up. I received them today and I'm so excited! They fit perfectly, so stylish and comfortable. I'm all set for the winter & can't wait to get some snow. I would suggest to order these boots a half size up then what you regularly wear.

Rated 1 out of 5áby CMCWalMA Disappointing
Got these boots in the mail. They look great, super cute. Then attempted to put them on. I have never, ever, spent so much time trying to get a boot on. It was like trying to stuff an elephant into a rabbit. But alas I get them on and they're comfortable. But is it worth the 15 minutes I spent trying to get them on... No. So I give Beans one more try, maybe these shoes just run really REALLY small. I exchange them and this time spent 5 minutes (literally) getting on 1 boot. Which I then decided to just return them and get my money back. Overall really nice looking snow boots! But unless your foot bends in some very strange ways, you'll be spending a lot of time getting these on! LLBean... Add a zipper or laces.. Or some sort of stretch to these and they would be perfect!

This boot has many of the qualities I was looking for in a boot. It is warm looking and may be sized well. I won't know because there is no zipper on this tall boot- meaning I couldn't get my foot in.
