Rated 5 out of 5 by Bev123 The Best
I have been waiting all winter to write this review - I had to wait until the slushy season so I could report that these boots are not only comfortable and warm but they are 100% waterproof. For those who know about Boston's 2015 winter and the 114" of snow that fell in the city - I am happy to say that these boots got me through. Luckily I live in the city so I left my car in the garage, avoided the T that was not working and I happily put on these boots - and walked 40 minutes each way to work - Jan - March - every day. They were comfortable, warm (I did use toe warmers on the single digit below 0 days) and kept my feet absolutely dry. Even when I had to walk through slush and puddles. They also look quite nice. I rounded up a half size for my size - as I did use smart wool liners and smart wool regular socks. There also is no wear on the treads. These are the best.

I had been searching for a pair of warm boots and I'm so glad I finally found these! I'm a 7 in pretty much any shoe I wear and I found these to be a tiny bit bigger than I expected but it actually didn't turn out to be as big of a deal as I thought it would be wearing them which is why I still gave these boots 5 stars. They're very easy to get on and off which I like in a boot and are very warm. They were a bit more expensive than I like to pay for boots but I feel like they are worth it and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I bought this cute pair of boots in brown. After read many reviews, I decided to go full size up (I normally wear 7.5 but ordered 8.5) because I have muscular calf. They fit great in my shafts. I can wear them over a skinny jeans or leggings. About the sole part, I ordered shearling insole from L.L.Bean to add more warm and to decrease the loose area around my feet. This boots kept my feet toasty warm in New Year's Eve while I watched the fireworks in the park with temperature around (feels like) 0'F. They're also comfortable to wear in long walk. However, the vest of my right boot was a little bit stiff at the first place. But after two weeks of wearing, they're breaking in. Great boots for the price too! I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Browneyedgirl1207 Beautiful boot!!!
I've looked everywhere, this is the most beautiful boot I've found. I purchased this in the brown. I wear 8 in LL winter shoes to allow room for socks. The first day I wore these the were so comfortable. They did not hurt my feet at all, my feet stayed warm but not sweaty. Such a gorgeous, classy boot! I was not disappointed. I will get the black if they come back with my size.
They're not tight on my calf. but it could be if you have large calf's or a lot of jeans material.

I purchased these boots a little large because I have wide feet. They are a little long, but I'm sure that with extra socks, they will be fine. I haven't had a chance to use them yet, but am planning a trip to the D.C. area and will wear them. They are just a little bit stiff, but I'm sure that I can break them in.

I spotted these boots back in the fall but being frugal, waited until the last minute to purchase them...just before they sold out apparently!
These are just the perfect boots! They are beautiful, well made and fit comfortably, even with my smartwool winter socks. I have not tried them in any Upstate NY winter weather...but I got these just for going out places, rather than for extended use in cold winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OhiolBeanCustomer Comfortable and warm
The boots fit well with a regular or heavier sock. Have not had the opportunity to wear in cold weather or snow yet but feel confident that they will protect me from the elements. The lining is soft and the zippers are easy to operate. The top of the boot is snug around my calves but should pose no problem in tucking in pants or jeans. Looking forward to the cold and snowy to test them out.

I've only worn this pair of boots a couple of times so this is just a preliminary review.
1. Size of footbed is just right. For comparison, I wear a 7.5 in last year's insulated comfort mocs, an 8 in most running shoes and a 7.5 in this pair of boots. There's also ample room in the toebox - I can wiggle my toes easily.
2. I find that this is really warm. I wore it in a 25F weather and my feet stayed warm.
3. Design is really cute and and looks like this will last for a long time.
1. Some people might find the shaft too small. The biggest part of my calves is 14" in circumference and I barely managed to zip it. People with bigger than 14" calves might feel uncomfortable in these boots.
2. The vamp is a little bit stiff and tight. I don't know if the stiffness is due to the boots being brand new; it may need a little breaking in. Hopefully, they will also widen a bit because if my feet get any fatter, they'll probably not fit.
Overall, this is a good pair of boots and will recommend it to friends.

The shoe part was true to size, but the calf was too narrow (I have average sized calves).

Tried the boots as soon as I received them and the fit was perfect. Great looking boots but I haven't had a chance to test them in the cold winter snow. They certainly prove to be warm when I tried them upon arrival. Hopefully they will turn out to be as great as my other L L Bean products.
