Rated 1 out of 5 by RBinNC Bad Design
Tongue is poorly designed -- too short and too narrow. I love LL Bean products, but skip these shoes until they fix that fatal flaw, unless you like the laces rubbing directly on your foot, then these are for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abbrey Excellent Gore-Tex Value
Simply the best boot I currently own...and the Gore-Tex lining not only keeps my feet dry but a Gore-Tex boot at a price& value less than $160 simply cannot be beat...by anyone...

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaltyMike Comfortable/Waterproof Shoes
These shoes are very comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone. I did purchase the Gunsmoke color which is the newer version with the rings for the top eyelets. While playing football, I have had no problems with discomfort or water soaking through from extremely wet grass.

Rated 3 out of 5 by InigoM Comfortable shoes, but with two problems
I purchased these shoes about one year ago and have worn them on about a dozen day hikes. They are very comfortable and I'm pleased with the waterproofness. Unfortunately,as experienced by one other reviewer, the rubber toe bumper has separated from the material, so I am sending them back. Either the sewing or glue was not adequate. I've also found the tongue to be too short, but was willing to overlook that until the material defect appeared.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wooker1 Destructive sewing!
Bought a pair of these hiking shoes in March 2015 and had limited hiking opportunities due to snow in March and April. After I got back hiking the materiel around the top of the shoe started to tear away from the main shoe due to shoddy sewing and not enough glue! Other wise they are comfortable and the GoreTex actually works. Sending them back to LL Bean for an exchange today!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tetrader Short tongue
My wife came up with the idea of looping the laces over the top of the hooks so the laces would tie below the hooks. Just got these, so haven't tried them out yet but worth a shot as they fit nicely out of the box, look nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobKinFairfax Very comfortable
These shoes appear to be of very good quality. They were very comfortable right out of the box, with a comfortable sole with aggressively tread and reasonable support for a light hiker. As other reviewers have noted, the tongue is oddly short, but not uncomfortable.
My size 11 fit just a little larger than my typical experience with other shoes, so if you are typically between sizes you might want to try out the smaller one first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveMaineandLLB Follow LLB advice!
After initial attempts with other footwear offerings I was urged by LLB to try this product, to provide stability & balance lost during a hospital stay. After a year of dependence on a cane or walking stick, I put these on and immediately realized that I NO LONGER needed assistance. I highly recommend this shoe for anyone needing a sense of security in walking, especially if used to an active lifestyle in their lives - I am now 66.

Purchased this shoe for my husband. Great shoe he said, wish the tongue on the shoe was a little longer though.
