Rated 4 out of 5 by Libbyx452 Nice boots
The boots are nice but they ran big. I wear an 8 and these were big. I did return them only because they were big and did not look good on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1HappyShopper2LLBean Great boot!
I really like these boots! I am glad that I read the reviews because they led me to order the boots one-half size smaller and in the wide width. They fit perfectly. They're easy to get on and off, and I have worn them all day every day since I got them. They're comfortable, stylish, and seem well-made. The soles seem like they will provide good traction on slippery surfaces. I thought about this purchase for a long time because it is fairly expensive. But I think I got my money's worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IAGeode Deerfield Rustic Harness Boots
I was hesitant to buy these simply based on the price. However these boots fit like a glove, that said I have a narrow foot, so I can't speak to any width issues, bought my usual size, 8.5 and I wear them with woolen socks.
Well made, no issues with seams, water proofing, or sturdiness.
No problems walking in snow, slush, or on ice, other than typical care taken in those conditions. They're not lined, so you can feel the cold from the pavement if you're simply standing outside. . One comment I can make is that the black looks a bit blue to me, although my friends disagree, saying they're black boots. I'd definitely purchase another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCaron These boots work for me
I agree with the other reviewers that these boots run a bit large. A size 8 shoe typically fits me perfectly, and I ordered these boots in an 8 despite the reviews suggesting that one should size down. These boots are definitely roomy, but they fit well. I experience zero slippage when I walk and find them to be extremely comfortable. I have a bunion on my toe, so a roomy toe box is ideal for me. I thought I would mind the zipper being on the outside, but I am already used to it and really do not mind. I love the look and the feel of these boots. (Background: age 48, wear boot cut jeans over my boots, and I've had these boots for about a month--no quality problems so far.)

I am exactly a 7 1/2 shoe size, but a 7W fit perfectly. They look super cute with skinny jeans and have a decent tread, better than my winter Bean boots for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CityGirlInTheCountry Not bad
I received a gift card for Christmas and wanted to get leather boots. I originally bought the Deerfield boots with the zipper, they were half the price on sale. The zipper broke within 15 minutes, disappointed I decided not to exchange in fear it would just happen again and so I returned them and went with these. I like them fine they are comfortable enough not to hurt my feet. Without a zipper you do have to struggle a bit to get them on and off. The toe area is extra long and curls a bit, that I don't like. My size nine look even longer. My feet are narrow. I have been wearing them every day even grocery shopping and walking a bit to try to get them broken in. I love the non slip sole and chunky heel. These are not feminine boots. The color is a very dark brown, almost black, not as pictured on the website. They need to change that. All in all I am going to keep them for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aamnyc Comfortable and cute
I love these boots! They indeed run quite large. I'm a true 9.5 with a relatively wide foot. The regular width 9.5s were way too big and a bit too narrow. I ended up with the 8.5 wides, and I probably would be fine with the 8s. They are super comfortable though, and great for walking around the city. I also wore them in the snow, and the traction was great. They are wide at the opening, so they fit perfecting over straight / skinny jeans. The style is classic, and I look forward to wearing them for a long time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by madcitywisgal Wide shaft didn't work for me.
I have purchased many pairs of boots from LL Bean over the years, including other styles of "Deerfield " boots. I was encouraged by reviews that noted that the boot was running narrow. I have a narrow heel and somewhat narrow foot, but not narrow enough to buy narrow sizes.
The boot fit me well and I loved the harness style, but the flaring wide shaft looked weird on my slim legs.My husband commented that it looked like I was wearing upside down bell bottoms. The shaft was far too wide to go under jeans, and looked really silly with tights.
Sadly, I returned these boots. Maybe there should be a slim fit and a wide fit version. At least I will now know not to order any boots that feature a wide shaft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hollie1 Awesome boots!
These boots are great! I have a wide foot with a high instep so they were a little hard to get on at first but now that I've been wearing them, they do fine. These boots are very well made! It's nice to be able to find a nice looking boot in a wide width. Thanks llbean!!

These boot are comfortable, easy on and off, great looking and perform well in the snow. I did end up with a 1/2 size smaller than all my other shoes.
