Rated 5 out of 5 by MidwestShoppingMom Love Love LOVE Them!
After debating and comparing LL Bean boot styles for weeks, I finally took the plunge and bought these and I do not regret it! I was in search of "everyday boots"...boots stylish and comfortable enough to wear every day but also able to keep my feet warm and dry throughout unpredictable Midwest winters. These boots have met and exceeded all my expectations! I ordered my typical shoe size and I found the fit to be perfect...not too big or too small. They have been very comfortable throughout all my daily routines and errands. While they are heavier to walk in than, say, sneakers, they are not klunky (the complaint I had with my current pair of boots). I have worn them in cold weather both with and without snow, just doing my normal errands and such, and my feet have always stayed warm and dry! Salt brushes off easily. I have also been complimented on them several times, so I take that to mean they are stylish too (not just in my own mind)! I've only had them about a month so I can't speak to their long-term durability but they are from LL Bean so I assume they will not disappoint in this area either! Love love love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayJay77 AWESOME!!!
I LOVE these boots. They are so toasty warm. Yet wearing them inside all day I do not sweat in them. I vendor fine jewels for a very well known company as a side job. I did an all day event and stood on my feet ALL DAY and did not feel any discomfort by the end of the day. When I first bought them I tried them on and walked around the house. I was not use to wearing boots this thick so I was not sure if they were right for me but they were gorgeous and I took the chance in keeping them. I am SO GLAD I did. They are so comfortable and I get so many compliments no matter where I am, heck that's all they see are my boots. :) I wear an 8 to 8 1/2 shoe and ordered an 8 1/2 boot. I don't wear too thin of a sock yet I dont wear thick socks and the boots fit me perfectly. I can't state anything about the waterproofing as I have not walked into puddles but if LL Bean says they are waterproof, that's good enough for me. ENJOY them. I do!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ktown warm, cute boots
Ordered 1/2 size larger than normal (8 instead of usual 7 1/2) based on review. The 8 is a bit big, but okay with 2 pair of socks. 7 1/2 would have been perfect. Warm and cute! May get a pair in the dark brown next!

Rated 5 out of 5 awesome!
These are the best pair of winter boots I've bought since the last pair I got from LL Bean ~15 years ago. They are super comfortable and great for lots of walking. They're warm too; I wasn't sure about buying them initially because I wasn't sure if they would really be warm enough. I've worn them in -30 F and my feet stayed warm; I would say the temperature rating is overly conservative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bailey20 So warm and comfortable!
I was looking for a pair of stylish boots that were still warm and durable and these are perfect! They hold up in the rain and snow and are truly the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever owned. I would recommend these to anyone !

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanierBean Great boots!
The boots fit great and look fabulous! They are also very warm and great in the snow and ice. My only negative is that they are a little stiff, but I'm hoping they will soften up in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Auntecarol These are great!
No animals hurt in the making of these boots! Comfortable from the start. I am constantly being complimented on these boots even by strangers in stores like trader joes. I love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PJgirl Very warm & classy looking boots
I got the dark brown color and think they look even better than the picture in the catalog. Have very cold winters here in Indiana & this past week we got 6" of snow. Walking the dog thru this snow my feet stayed toasty warm & dry. They run a bit wide thru the heel, my only complaint, but still comfy enough to be a winner in my book! Thanks LL BEAN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Analyes A wonderful boot
I've lived in the Midwest for 35 years, and have used various boots during the winter when shoveling snow or trapsing the open prairie. This is the first time I've had warm feet. Used a thin pair of commercial socks in 10 degree weather for several hours and my feet were comfortable and warm. Fingers were another story... Guess I'll "gift" myself a pair of great L.L. Bean gloves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1outdoorgirl Warm, stylish winter boots
These are great! I normally have a difficult time finding shoes that fit well and these do. They are well made, warm, stylish and from what my husband tells me, sexy too! :D I love them, to the point that I decided to buy another pair, just in case they did not carry them in the future. Easy to slip on, with a supportive boot, that fits well around the ankle for support. I bought, as you should do, a half size larger than my average shoe, so that I could wear big socks if necessary. The dark brown is a rich color and very beautiful. I recommend them.
