Rated 5 out of 5 by tram1112 Hardy, comfortable, boots with one flaw
Took these to Norway in December and they handled everything from snow and ice to bogs and wetlands, forests, mountains, rain, and everything in between. Hiked every day in the wilderness for about 6 hours and feet stayed comfortable and warm.
No break in period needed and the boots were true to size. I wear an 11 shoe and I ordered 11 in this boot and they fit perfectly. Width is perfect medium width.
Have not tested the longevity of the boot yet but after beating them up for 2 weeks they have stayed intact. I'm happy with the quality so far.
Only downside is the large amount of insulation leads to sweaty feet quite often. Perfect if you are standing around in the snow, but if you are being active or wearing them indoors your socks will be soaked in no time, which is worrisome and annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chewie57 Comfortable, waterproof and great fit!
My basement was flooded with 4 inch of water and I couldn't find my snow boots. Then I decided to tried on the boots I brought from LL Bean,they are surely waterproof and comfortable. I would recommend these boots to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maintainer Big volume very warm boots
These boots were very comfortable right out of the box. Snowshoed 2 miles the next day without any friction spots (25 deg F) and with very warm toes. Width is ~ a D. I wear a 12 shoe and the size 12 leaves adequate room for the toes. I may need to go to 2 thick layers of socks to take up some of the large volume in the boot, even after adding an orthotic. Standing around at sunrise this AM (30 deg F) and no hint of cold toes. If you have skinny lower legs, the 2 sides of the boot closure might run into each other and limit how tightly you can lace them up, There is plenty of room for clothing layers above the ankle.
Seem well made so far. Reasonable grip on icy surfaces since the sole composite isn't too hard.
Looking forward to playing more in the snow and cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KahluaKitty GREAT BOOTS!
I bought these for my husband. He just loves them. They will keep his feet toasty warm this winter season, if we ever get any snow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sikuq Great for rough terrain with good support.
I use these boots primarily for the shoulder seasons where mud, snow, overflow and icy conditions prevail. They always keep my feet dry and warm even during very low temperatures especially when I use double hybrid wool socks, felt wool sole inserts below the existing soles, and often LLBean chemical heat packs. To facilitate this I purchase the size larger also to keep my circulation unrestricted. I also use them for icy conditions off trail with my cleats/spikes attached and snowshoeing on uneven ground.

Very comfortable and warm. My husband uses them for work and has worn them for several hours to break them in. Had no issue with discomfort. Very pleased. Have not been exposed to very cold weather yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SullDog Wildcat Boots quality issue
Living in the NorthEast, I treasure my wildcat boots (especially this winter) for keeping my feet warm and dry on the occasions when we get hit with extreme conditions. Imagine my disappointment when I noticed that the leather upper had pulled away from the rubber bottom portion of the boot leaving a gap for snow to get in. Further noted that there was no stitching that let go, rather just a poor glue job apparently.
Further disappointed when I learned via chat session with llbean CS that these boots are NOT REPAIRABLE and I may return them for a refund.
I need good, quality winter boots like llbean used to make, not a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hiker15701 Great Boots
These boots fit perfectly. I wear a size 10D and ordered a 10D. They easily slide on and off and are comfortable to wear while hiking. We had 3 inches of snow and 1 degree temperatures with a -14 degree wind chill. The boots kept my feet warm and comfortable. I took the "widow-maker" hill today with 4 inches of snow on the ground. The hill has areas with 50 to 70 degree inclines. I never lost my footing. Great traction. If you like being out in the winter weather or have to be out in it, these are the boots for you.
