Rated 5 out of 5 by SkeeterB Great boots from fit to function.
I have a narrow 71/2 foot size. Size 7 is an excellent fit with a medium weight sock. Boots are light weight, comfortable, and easy to clean. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pleinairartist dry and toasty toes
I paint landscapes outdoors in lots of different weather conditions and these boots have proved comfortable enough to hike in while carrying equipment and kept my feet warm and dry while painting for several hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruinlover Well-made, lightweight, and warm
I love the look and feel of this boot. I ordered the Size 8, based on reviews of others, although I usually wear a 9. The lining is plush and the boot gives good support. My issue is with the width. I am usually a medium width, but with a medium weight sock, the boot was too snug in the forefoot. I wore them around the house a bit to see if they would pack down a little, but they did not. I decided to bring them to my closest LLBean store so I could try a 9(since there are no 1/2 sizes), but there were none in stock. I tried on the Storm Chaser boot in size 9 and found them a perfect fit! Plenty of room in the forefoot with wiggle room for my toes. They also have a very comfortable foot bed/liner. We have not had much snow this winter in MA, but I am looking forward to trying them out! I was told that they will work with snow shoes, if that is what you have in mind. I'm disappointed that the Wildcat Pro didn't work for me, but glad that I found a replacement in the Storm Chaser. They look cute wearing them with jeans rolled up(I have the women's Performance Jeans, which I LOVE!) Thanks, LLBean, for your great products and excellent customer service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by astvd I reluctantly had to return them
I was very excited to buy these boots as I have trouble keeping my toes warm and these promised good warmth. The reviews were excellent and spoke of how comfortable the boots were "out of the box." Sadly, that was not my experience. I very much wanted to love them and I tried hard to break them in, but after over a week of use, they remained too stiff for me to wear and created bruises on my shins and ankles. I reluctantly returned them to the store. The LL Bean customer service was excellent and the shoe salesman helped me select a different style boot that was less stiff. I don't doubt that these are excellent boots, but they were not for my feet and legs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janinnewhampshire Comfortable
These boots are very comfortable, warm and good grip on icy surface. They run a little big. I wear a true 7. If they came in half-sizes, I would order a size down. A whole size down would be too small. But, so comfortable that I am keeping them. I gave a 4 star only because they run large with no half sizes.

by JoySF Great boot
I live in the south, where I'm sure my feet will never touch snow. I bought these boots because I have searched forever to find an insulated boot that wasn't furry. I don't need little rabbits following me. My feet stay cold & when I am at my son's lacrosse games the wind cuts through the bleachers making my feet a block of ice. So, it rained yesterday & I decided to wear these boots while doing errands. I walked through water (not to be confused with walking ON water) -the boots stayed dry. They were very comfortable- like I would have slept in them had I been 40 years younger. They are well insulated without being bulky.I love these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by spreesmom Overall Great but Lacks Traction
I love these boots! They were very warm, lightweight and comfortable straight out of the box. Unfortunately, I expected that boots designed to be waterproof and warm to -35F would also offer excellent traction, which turned out not to be the case. I have a bad back and cannot risk a slip-and-fall mishap, and these boots don't seem to have tread that grips in slippery situations. If all you need is warmth and water-resistance, these boots are outstanding, but if you expect to be active on slippery surfaces, these won't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FishForBeans good fit
I haven't had a chance to wear these much yet, but they fit with very little slippage in the heel. They seem to be comfortable with only a little break in time needed, and they are very warm.

Love these. Was hesitant when first took out of box due to thick padding on the inside, so I tried on with different weight socks, ending with my heavy winter boot socks. Boots were still roomy and comfortable. Haven't worn them out yet so I will see how they function in the cold snowy weather.
