Rated 4 out of 5 by nickyp603 Great winter boot
The wildcat is a great boot for snowshoeing and other active winter activities. Comfortable out of the box, low profile and warm. Fits like a hiking boot. I am usually an 8.5, the 8 fits perfectly. 9 was too big. I wear a smartwool winter sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chessie55 Great boots for winter weather!
Just got these boots a couple of weeks ago and already have used them twice, in all this crazy winter weather we are having this year. Great for walking - I walked 3 miles in the, right out of the box. Extremely comfortable, warm, and no wet feet!

I absolutely love my boots.......they are everything I was looking for and more. Winters here in Vermont are extremely cold with lots of snow. I work as a Paratransit driver and have to get in and out of the bus often while loading and unloading passengers. I needed a pair of boots to keep my feet warm and these boots do just that. I wear heavy socks with them and it is the perfect combination.

These are great boots. True to size with plenty of extra room in the box if you wear layers of socks. They are warm and comfortable. I couldn't be more pleased with these boots.

With the winter this year in MA I found that I needed a better pair of boots. (My toes were wet and freezing.) I originally ordered these boots in an 8-1/2 and while OK the 9 is a great improvement. I love these and the return was expedited in time for the second blizzard. Warm, toasty and comfortable. Thanks LL Bean (Of course now the snow has stopped)

I just spent a few years in Hong Kong, a much warmer climate, so really needed good boots to deal with the winters of MA. When these wildcat boots came in a mail they were a little on the tight side, but I was hesitant on getting a size larger, because I've had this happen before and one size larger would end up being too big after being worn in. So it took me about 2 weeks to really break into the boots - they were quite stiff at first, pressing on my ankles and toes. Now I walk to and from work, about half an hour each way. But they are super warm, are great for trekking on snowy unploughed sidewalks and playing in snow with kids (I'm a teacher in the Boston area). They've been keeping my feet warm, dry and so far keeping me from slipping. I would say that on one day when it was mostly snowy slush on the ground, the boots were kicking the snow backwards more than they were helping me advance. Although I don't know if those conditions would have been different wearing any other boots - might just be nasty MA weather/roads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SciTeach10 Great Boots!
I bought winter boots from LL Bean about 10 years ago. The rubber on them cracked. LL Bean was happy to give me full price credit for those boots. I used that amount to buy the Wildcats. These boots are very warm and comfortable. I am looking forward to using them on many cold season hikes! I did find that the high supports around my lower leg agitated my skin, so tall, thick socks are a must. I'm very happy with my purchase and with LL Bean's customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beanbuyergirl did not fit well
I purchased these boots to wear in what is shaping up to be a very snowy new england winter. I was happy with the styling and look of the boot when it arrived...then i tried it on. I ordered it in a size 9. What I have purchased in previous similar boots in the past. When i put it on with the medium weight wicking socks I intended to wear with them my toes felt too tight. Also the back of this boot is rather high, something I was looking for. However the collar of the boot is very stiff and cut into the back of my calf and was too uncomfortable to tolerate. I contemplated maybe they would "break in" but did not want to endure being uncomfortable until that might have happened. I have sent them back.
