Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

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.

This boot, made in Italy, was a great fit & felt comfortable from the time I tried them on in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mnfrank 4th pair is the best so far!
I have had 3 pairs of the original Italian Mountain Treads. (I also have some Cresta hikers.) The MTs were a bit tight on little toe side. I went up a half-size on the 3rd pair and it was better but still a little tight on the toes and forefoot. But they carried me many miles.
This new version is much improved in the forefoot roominess but also with addition of another lace hook on the ankle it is more secure on rough ground. The low-cut version is a great flat ground walker. They are not much heavier than sneakers in either version.
This is a very good product. Pretty pricey but they will perform well much longer than cheaper boots. Frugal buyers will agree with me about three years from now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SMKs Excellent boots, real improvement
I have been using similar boots for years, but these are a real step forward (so to speak) in design re comfort and support. I can now hike for hours and feel like I just put them on. Get them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesDoxies husband's favorites!
My husband bought a pair of these in mid height in fall of 2007 prior to a trip to Glacier Nat'l Park. We hiked there for a week and decided they were just too narrow for his wide foot. Contacted llbean and they returned for the wider boot, no questions asked. Over the years he has hiked in the wider pair all over Colorado, Utah, and two of the Hawaiian Islands multiple times. He absolutely loves these shoes. This year he bought a new pair in the low cut variety. Agree with all the descriptions above that they feel great out of the box. Very tough construction and sole. Excellent hiking shoe - great for those extra wet conditions - even the wet, muddy red dirt on the western side of Kauai.

These shoes are well worth the money. Better than most I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BankerWoman1 GREAT BOOTS!
This is my second pair of these boots and they run true to size with a little extra room in the toe area. My other pair is about 8 years old and, although not getting worn out at all, a little snug due to my feet growing with "old age." I will still wear the older pair for working in the yard and for shorter periods of duration. The new ones were comfortable right out of the box and I've already worn them on several multi-mile hikes. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlestonian Great boot better
I have been wearing mountain treads and cresta hikers for over 10 years. The mountain treads have always been very comfortable and supportive. These new ones are even more so. I purchased the low cut ones and after wearing them had to get these. They are roomier in the forefoot,lighter,and more flexible than the old mountain treads. Without a doubt a fantastic boot.
