Rated 4 out of 5 by Captinkate Love boots but runs big
Love, love, these boots. But they do run a 1/2 size too big. Had to exchange 8 for 7 1/2 ... should have read more of the reviews!

I had been coveting these boots for over a year, read the reviews and finally made the purchase. I wear a size 10 1/2, have a fairly wide foot (but have never ordered wide shoes as I usually have to size up to an 11), and definitely not skinny calves (though I can fit in most tall boots-albeit snug) I purchased the dark brown boot in a size 10 wide. The size 10 is more than spacious, they easily fit like any size 11 shoe I own. The wide width fits comfortably, though I would say probably more snug than one would expect from a "wide" shoe. The extra room in the calf is very spacious - almost so much that I considered returning the boots, as they look a little clunky with all the extra leather.. I can easily fit my hand down the back of the boot. The finish of the dark brown leather is beautiful, though not quite as dark as it appears in the picture. Overall, I would recommend you size down at least 1/2 a size, if not a full size and stay away if you have thin legs - there will be way to much gap in the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MAS05401 Great Fit! Exactly what I was looking for.
Love these boots. I purchased the Wide in my size and they fit great. I like the extra room in the calf as well. I loved that a Wide was available in the store in my size and I was able to try them on before my purchase. I don't like buying footware online because I have a hard time finding comfortable footware. Thank you to LLBean for having some wides in store. they are not easy to come by and are very much appreciated when offered. Having said that, I could see how these boots might not work for a narrow foot, but there are so many other options if you are looking for a narrow fit. If Bean offers these in Black in the future I will purchase them.

These boots are great! Stylish without sacrificing quality or comfort. Rubber sole with good grip, comfortable to stand all day in. I have a narrow foot and they fit me well bu if you have a wide foot they might be a little tight in the width. Looks great with jeans leggings or tall socks and skirts.

They were a little snug when I first put them on but quickly relaxed a bit and now are very comfortable. I wore them a lot at first but now it's warming up so I'll look forward to wearing them again next fall. They are very sturdy and well made. I would recommend them.

These boots do run a little big but I wanted the room to put warmer socks on with them. If you want to wear them with thinner socks perhaps order a half size down. They are well made and very sturdy. Wearing them through slush and ice I find they provide very good traction. If Bean would get them in black I'd get a pair of those as well. That said, the dark brown color is lovely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sobsob Fit and style issues
I debated for a long time before making the purchase, as it is quite an investment. I really wanted to like the boots but as a result of two items, I will be returning them. 1> I have a slight bunion on one foot and the boot put such pressure on it that my toes went numb. I wore the boots inside for a while thinking they would loosen up - but they did not. My bunion has never had problems with other shoes or boots. 2> I have thin calves and did not need the extra room that is designed in this boot. Some boots have a tab that can bet let out if you need the extra space in the calves. This boot had a permanent elastic "V" insert that I think is too visible and does not enhance the look - especially if you do not need the extra room. I also was not thrilled with the color - I wish I had ordered the darker brown - but I would have kept them if I did not have the other 2 issues. I really wanted to like these boots but between the fit and the look of the calf widener, I will be returning them.

I normally wear a 7 but bought these in a 6 1/2. I have an average size foot but find these to be a little wide. Besides the sizing these boots are amazing. I was hoping for something I could dress up a little more but for an everyday boot these are perfect. I love the tred on them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanCapitalRegion Loved, but have to return
Loved these boots as soon as they arrived, gorgeous color, very nice looking boots. Sadly I have to return them because they do not fit my calf (16 inch circumference). I had high hopes when others said it fit their "wide" calf and since there weren't any measurements for the calf circumference on the description I took a chance. Too bad, they look like really lovely boots!
Also- if you choose Wide for the size know that it is really wide! I normally wear a 6 - 6.5 and ordered a 6.5 Wide and I could have fit a very thick sock in there and still had room. I'd recommend going a half size down if you order wide.
