I love the look of the boots. I am a short person and the hight of the boot is to much for me. I will return them ASAP! I will re-order something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutdoorGirlinPA Love these boots!
I needed a boot that can take rain and snow and still be comfortable and look good. I looked at a lot of boots, but this one is waterproof and lightweight! I read the reviews and ordered them. These boots are better than I expected! They look good and are very lightweight! They are higher - mid calf. Perfect for snow. I highly recommend these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tfairchild Almost perfect...except
They are crazy warm and comfortable, and not ugly! I wore them around for a week after I got them, even though it's 50 degrees F with no snow on the ground, just to break them in and get used to driving in them (they are pretty stiff at first, and big and clompy) and my feet never got overly hot, but were very comfy like wearing a cozy pillow.
BUT! There are two tags on the tongue, one printed on and one sewn on. The sewn on tag had very scratchy corners and gave me a little abrasion on my leg where it rubbed against me. I carefully cut the tag off with embroidery scissors, leaving the material of the tongue intact, and now the boots are PERFECT. Maybe you guys could print both tags?

Rated 4 out of 5 by LJLee73 Well-constructed boot
I originally shopped L.L.Bean for their "Bean boot," wanting more of a waterproof, warm boot for winter, but not needing something heavy-duty, as I live in TN. Due to their popularity, they were all back-ordered, and I needed something sooner than February! These are a nice-looking, well-constructed boot (which you can probably guess). Some things that might not be obvious from the picture:
They are quite high. Sometimes that's hard to tell, just looking at a picture, but if you imagine where your foot and ankle would be in this boot, you'll see that they come up to nearly mid-calf. If you live somewhere with deep snow, that will be a plus. If you plan to wear these like everyday shoes with jeans, that might not be what you want. Obviously, you'll need pants with fairly wide legs if you want them to come over the boots.
I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered the 8. I think a 9 would have been too big. The 8's have enough room for a light-to-medium weight sock, but probably not a heavy sock, so consider ordering a size up if that's your plan.
I often have problems with slip-on boots because I have a high instep (which is why I wanted lace-ups). These are snug around the top, near the toe, but manageable. I also have an average-width foot, and the Medium width feels perfect.
They have a substantial sole and will make you about 2 inches taller. That's a little troubling to me because I feel a bit like I'm walking on stilts (not because of the height, but because I can't feel the ground under my feet). I haven't driven in them yet, but I'm guessing they will not be good for driving because of the soles.
Overall, nice-looking, well-made boot. I'm sure they will be very warm and I'm glad to have something to wear for the (rare) snowfalls we have here, or for when I travel to colder climates.

I ordered the 10 Medium even though I normally wear a wide. I'm very happy to say that the width is perfect for me, with room for heavier socks. The boots are very comfortable and warm. I look forward to seeing how they stand up to a New England winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SugartownFarm Best Boots Ever!
I love my new boots!! As a woman farmer it's always hard to find clothes and shoes that are durable but yet feminine. These boots fit the bill!! They are so comfortable, lightweight...and keep my toes totally warm. I don't even know that I am wearing boots. That says a lot, because I am a flip-flop summer kind of girl!!

I ordered these for my daughter, she loves them! True to size with room for thick wool socks. Light but very warm and toasty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Apeel Great winter boots
Just got these boots in the mail today. As soon as I tried them on my feet were so warm. Overall the boots are comfortable, sturdy and will be great for New England weather. I can't wait to use them for snowshoeing this winter. I am a true size 7, medium which is what I ordered and they fit perfectly. The boots allow plenty of room for either thin or thick socks depending on your preference. I would recommend these boots to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HarrietS Couldn't ask for better boots
I wore these boots in upstate NY throughout the cold winter of 2014-15. I used them for dog-walking and caring for horses, so I wore them many hours every day. Although sometimes my feet were cold, it was only because I was cold all over, and not the fault of the boots.They are very comfortable, have noticeably good traction, and the bottom part never leaked. (When it's above freezing the upper half will soak through eventually, especially if surrounded by wet pant legs.) Now, at the end of the winter, the only part that shows wear is the laces. I am pleased to recommend them 100%.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MorganneP Not LL Bean Standard
These boots were great when I first got them! I loved them. But within 3 months of me buying them the seams ripped on the side (making them no longer water proof), the laces snapped, and one of the lace clips broke off. I was seriously disappointed with LL Bean.
