Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Liketowearboots Extremely unconfortable
I love boots - I have plenty of them and I like a comfortable fit,. These we hard. I know boots shouldn't be so hard, even leather boots, I think there is a false belief that you have to break in boots. Yes, a little but I wouldn't even be interested in hurting my feet to break these in.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SarahKicks Not so bad : )
I debated about these boots for a long time. After reading all of the reviews stating how narrow they are I went for the 8 wide size. I usually wear an 8M. I'm now thinking I should have just ordered my regular size. The 8 wide version is a little narrow in the toe but slips around on the heel. I have worn them with big heavy socks and that helps a little. Now I'm noticing that toe seems to be breaking in and is much more comfortable. These boots probably just need a little breaking in so if you are looking for a perfect out of the box these might be for you. I'm keeping mine and they are also really cute!!

Rated 3 out of 5áby MadisonLLBeanFan Not the same leather as pictured on website
I wanted the rustic, dull, matte finish of the leather shown in the online photo of this boot, but the boots I received were shiny, polished leather. I ordered them in black. I spoke to customer service and was told that the website photo has not been updated and that the current boots in stock are not like the ones pictured, but are instead the shiny, polished version. They are beautiful boots, just not the leather shown. Same is true for the brown boot. Customer service told me to look at the tall version of this boot to see what the actual finish is currently for the short boot, as well. I'm not happy to be sending them back, but they are not what I wanted and I already have a polished black short boot.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Victo9 Perfect boots at last!
Finally, I found some boots that are like Frye but are a bit wider for my feet. Yes, I do agree they could be wider but the price was so good. Made in Brazil too, not China. I can never get anything to fit my feet nobody makes wide widths except running shoes. It was so good to find these at Beans as I had about given up hope. They have a great sole too, I may put inserts in for flat feet but I was pretty happy to find these here!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Gypsy57 Deerfield changed to biker look
I purchased this short version,a few months ago having owned the original style tall boots for several years (and love them!). 7 wide has always worked, The Harness version runs wider - I needed thicker socks, and they are a little bit longer in comparison. Comfortable all day once I found a better sock weight. The top of the boot does not fit well under straight or skinny jeans - I ended up wearing them with the jeans tucked in and they still gaped. In fairness to the designer, they are wide enough to put on easily. It is the "new" look of the boot that I am not very happy about. They are very "biker" looking, and masculine; not at all the sleek look of the earlier Deerfield boot, which had slender wrap-around straps and oval toe. I would have advised the Marketing Dept. to have renamed the boot completely. If you are looking for a men's-look boot in a woman's size you will be happy with this version.
In retrospect, I should have returned them.
