Rated 5 out of 5 by ObsessedFlyFisher super shoes
paperboy by trade, no kidding. 450 nightly deliveries, through all weather and all terrain. your feet are your livelihood. tried them all, hands down, these are the best. fit, comfort, foot control and durability. previous pair lasted 2 years walking more steps than most folks will walk in 10 years. still good backups. new pair even better and look good while at it. considering? buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iwildfire Love these Hikers
I love these hikers. I got a Wide EE in Men's. They look nice, are comfortable and are waterproof. I have developed neuropathy in my feet and this is the best shoe I have found to help my feet. They let me be on my feet longer due to the great support they give me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnfromNJ Passed all the tests
I've been looking for a pair of low hiking boots for about a year. They need to pass three tests. The first is obvious: They have to fit out of the box. This pair: Passed. Second test: A three or four mile walk around the neighborhood: Passed. The third test: A 6-7 mile hike in the Catskills, with significant elevation changes. The boots passed with flying colors. No hot spots on my feet, no problems going up or down the rocky Catskill trails. I'll be buying another pair.

Seems like a good quality shoe, but will have to return. I ordered my usual size of 11 1/2 and they are too small. Hope to get a half size larger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TidewaterTrekker Too Early to Tell
These shoes replaced a pair that were only 15 months old when the upper toe separated from the sole in only moderate use (3-5 miles/week)
Customer service outstanding. The new pair isn't identical to the originals, but I can't tell the difference. This pair cost about $20 more. In LL Bean's defense, they did have the original but not to my color liking.
I dropped return at UPS on a Monday morning and on Saturday my credit card was posted with the refund for the initial cost-OUTSTANDING LL BEAN.
As for the new pair, should it also separate in only a year I will be online quickly to give my negative comments on quality and this pair sure looks to be manufactured the same. Here's hoping it was only an isolated issue. When questioned about similarity of construction the customer service rep said to return them just as I had the first pair. Good policy, but I'd just rather have something that is made well and holds up a reasonable amount of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Numbers Unable to wear of low cut
It was a comfortable fit I have bought hikers from LL Bean before and have enjoyed the product. I had to return the item because I needed a Mid cut hiker because of my ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott3708 Just great
Was an avid New Balance wearer for 10 years but last 2 pair stunk, felt seam running through heal, replacement same thing. Switched to these trail hikers, wanted to wear them for a couple weeks (everywhere) just to make sure and after 3 weeks you still can't tell I've even worn them. Fit was a little narrow when new out of box, but after a few days they are perfect and glad I didn't opt for wider. I ordered my normal shoe size and perfect fit. The more I walk the better they feel. I highly recommend these, as I will be getting more.

I bought these hikers for my husband because he is tough on all kinds of shoes. He loves these. They are durable and comfortable. So much so, I am going to order another pair just for back up.
