Rated 5 out of 5áby herdofturtles really impressed
Haven't been able to wear them on the trail yet due to 5 ft of snow in the northeast, but have been wearing them to the office to break them in. Very comfortable and very confident they'll be an all time favorite. buy with confidence!!

Took a few short hikes to break in shoes -- no problems. Ready for long hike now! Apreciated second pair of laces.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MarcyMan Similar to the previous versions
I had purchased this boot in its previous two versions. Like the current version, those were hard and stiff out of the box. However, the previous versions eventually broke-in to become comfortable and durable boots. It seems that each time L. L. Bean?s Italian manufacturer revises this boot, it has a different fit. Unfortunately, I cannot get a fit in this version. If the men?s size 7 Ż came in a wide, that might have helped me. This version has two lace hooks at the top of the boot. The preceding version had only one. Two lace hooks makes for a snugger heel fit.

Rated 2 out of 5áby LunaPippo Inside 'stitching'
The stitching with the inside straps was cutting into both feet. The fit was not really too tight. Too bad, I liked these shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Longbow1415 Day One Comfort
I have worn Mountain Treads for years. The catalog photo of the new incarnation did not impress me: I was particularly unhappy with the garish colored laces, but I needed new boots, so I decided to try a pair. After all, it's LL Bean. I could always send them back, right? Wow! They were comfortable right out of the box, where the old ones needed several days' break-in. It's hard to say for certain after only a couple of miles, but these may be the best Mountain Treads ever. I would have given them 5 stars, but not on such short acquaintance....perhaps after I get back from Africa in May, I'll post an update.
BTW, some intelligent person even packed a pair of gray laces in the box, so I don't feel like I'm wearing clown shoes. Thank you, LLB!

Rated 4 out of 5áby seesta great boot so far
These ran a little narrow and a little long. Normally I wear a size 9d, I returned and tried the 8 1/2 EE and they fit perfect. The foot pad insert didn't provide arch support, but I normally use an orthotic type support anyway. They are light and well built. Should last a lomg time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jdwheel1 Great Boots ! (but that is not a surprise)
The fit was excellent. In most shoes/boots 12 is normally tight on me and a 13 way too big (wish they made a 12.5). These 12s were PERFECT and comfy. They look very well made and should last for years (made by Italians according to the label).
I got the gray and the shoe laces shown on the web were too flashy for my conservative tastes. So I had plans to buy more conservative laces after I checked the fit. I was very happy when I opened the box and found 2 sets of laces... red and dark gray. Thanks to LLBean for knowing that many of their customers were conservative like me. They should note the included conservative laces on the web since I almost did not buy because of the garish laces.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KD57 Men's Gore-Tex Mountain Treads, Hiking Boots
Love these shoes. Been wearing them around the house and for walks, etc to break them in. They are super comfortable and lightweight. Can't wait to get them out on some trail hikes.
