Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanRandomGuy Worth the price
Shockingly, this shoe is NOT made in China, Korea, Mexico, or Uzbekistan. It's made in Italy, where boot makers know what they're doing. This boot is a joy to wear because of its excellent fit, superb support, and waterproof structure. I usually wear size 11, but because I now use an orthotic insert, I ordered 11 1/2, which was perfect. I also have Plantar faschiitis, so I absolutely need solid foot support. This shoe does it all: great support, excellent comfort, stylish, and two sets of laces are included in case you are more conservative than the standard red laces - which are cool. I highly recommend this shoe for daily wear, hiking trails, and getting wet and dirty on an adventure. It will not let you down even at the somewhat higher price. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sierrasdayhiker High quality, Great Fit
Bought these for day hikes in the Sierras. Minimal break in time compared to the earlier versions of this shoe. I wear a size 12 and the fit was perfect from the start. I didn't have to change the insoles to to make it fit. I have a narrow foot and this is one of the few shoes I didn't have to modify to adjust the fit like I typically do with other brands. Comfortable all day long when I've worn them to work. Would definitely buy again.

I once worked for W.L. Gore Company, the inventors and perfecters of Goretex«. Their products are incomparable for quality, and paired with L.L. Bean's customer satisfaction philosophy, how can you miss with the best of both worlds! A+++

Rated 1 out of 5áby HoseA discontinued
I purchased a taller version of this boot last year in 9Ż Wide and am very happy with it. It now appears to be discontinued. I can't even get this one in Wide. I have been purchasing LLBean boots for over 30 years and they now don't have my size.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Truegrits Improved fit
These hikers are just perfect. The foot-bed is very stable - very important for me since I had polio which left one leg smaller and weaker than the other. Nice that they ship with two pairs of laces; I like to give my boots a day off between wearing. The fit is much improved from my last pair. There is just that little bit more room across the ball of my foot and the lacing system provides a perfect fit.

Rated 4 out of 5áby AppalachianAmerican Great shoes but had to return them
Great shoes, just what I wanted. However when I walked they ran up & down my heel. Returned them. Regrettable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Naturespeaks Awesome shoe.
After moving to Colorado a year ago I really wanted a great hiking shoe and I finally found it.
I tried several and the main problem was with the arch and the sole. The more I was out on the trails I kept seeing boots from LL Bean and so I gave it a shot. I figured if these people who are hiking all the time use them than I should give them a shot as well.
So look no further! ! Great shoe. No complaints, no improvements.

This is one set of pretty hikers.
I'm reluctant to even get them dirty. Those red laces are a great accent to the elegant workmanship.
In many cases in this USA marketplace, you get far less than what you paid for. Not in this case. They feel great and look great.
Heck, they can bury me in these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 1130 Great Shoe
I wear an 11.5 EE. They fit me perfectly. I walked around at work a couple days to break them, but they felt great from the start. It is a very comfortable shoe. Just took them on a 9 mile hike today and they performed great and had good support. Highly recommend them.
