Rated 4 out of 5 by MAR4524 Good if wearing under jeans
These boots are well made and look like a frye boot for a fraction of the cost. But I was wanting to wear them as booties with leggings and such, and the ankle shaft was too wide for that to look right. Should have taken other reviewers advice on that. Still a great boot. Just not for purposes I wanted. Would look great under jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbeanolina Nice boots
I almost didn't order these boots because of the reviews about the sizing but I am glad I did...they are really nice looking boots! I like that they look appropriate with dress pants for work but still have a bit of an edge to them. I always select wide if it is an option...I agree that the wide could have been slightly wider for me but I am hoping with wear the leather will give a bit...thankfully they have plenty of room in the toe area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helaine Wicked Good Boot!
Got these in black size 6 for my very narrow, very small, very fussy size 5.5 feet. There is plenty of room to accommodate an orthotic and a sturdy, warm sock. The boot is comfortable, stylish, casual, warm and good for walking. There is no zipper; the elastic along the sides stretches to easily slide over my high arch.
Dress it down with jeans and a flannel shirt or dress it up with tights and a tunic.
The Deerfield boot is well constructed and worth the price.
It should last a long, long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Beansey Narrow & Uncomfortable
I ordered 1/2 size larger and wide width based on the recommendation of one of the reviews. They are a little too big and still too narrow. They are also uncomfortable because there is no cushioning. I am thinking about buying insoles to help. I am also wishing that they will stretch a little as I break them in. I walk a lot every day and these boots are not made for walking in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best boots I've ever worn
I hemmed and hawed about spending this much money on boots because I'm a student and don't have a steady income. But...I've bought so many pairs of cheap boots over the years and NYC is really tough on shoes. I finally decided to splurge and hope they are a good investment, and they are just. amazing. I've been wearing them for a weak straight and they are incredibly comfortable, sturdy, and beautiful. I'm normally an 8, but ordered a 9 based on reviews and was glad I did. I can wear them with thick wool socks and they still fit well. I waxed them with waterproofing wax and they held up great in the rain. Big big fan!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AcitveWorkingMom Cute boot - runs huge!
Like a lot of the other reviewers, I thought this was a really cute boot - both in the pictures and when it arrived. But unlike the other reviewers I found that it ran huge! I normally am a 10.5 in almost all shoes, I occasionally order a size 11 in a running shoe so my toes don't get jammed after running 5 - 6 miles. I tried the size 10 and my foot was swimming in it! Returning for a 9 wide and 9.5 medium - I know one will fit, it is just a matter of getting the right size. Beautiful leather. Shank around ankle is fairly wide. Wish it had a side zip so the boot looked a bit more stylish and fitted and not so floppy around the ankle ... maybe next year??

Rated 5 out of 5 by sedie just what i wanted
Great boots! Comfortable after one day of break in. True to size, maybe slightly narrow. Easy to get on. Strange smell, but should dissipate with time.
'LL Bean customer service was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FiftyYearOldShopper the wides are too narrow
Nice looking boots and I bought them because they came in wide. But the boots were not wide. So I had to return them.
These should be great if your feet are narrow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NewYorkCity2014 Wanted to love these boots so badly
I LOVE the look of these boots, but the shaft of the boot is just so wide around my ankle / lower calf! I am a runner and have larger-than-normal calves, and there was at least an inch of space between my leg and the boot all the way around the circumference of the boot. It's almost as if the boot needs a zipper or something in order to cinch it up. FWIW, it fits true to size (down to half sizes). I ordered the del la vinas (sp?) in hopes that they'll fit better.
