Rated 5 out of 5 by Appalachian Great fit
I hiked 500 miles on the AT with this boot. I just purchased my second pair. I have a wide foot. The wide toe box fits me well, gives enough room for my toes to move around and not hit the boot especially when hiking down hills. The boot runs small. I needed one size larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bonnie41 Felt great from the start.
I tried on several hiking shoes that day and this one felt comfortable from the moment I tried it on. I wore it all the next day and it gave excellent support and comfort. I like a wide toe box and this was great no tight toes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Secure glove for my feet
Out of all the hiking shoes I've tried on from different brands, these are clearly the best BY FAR.
The main thing is they offer excellent arch support. Like, actually *hugging* my arches. I feel really secure in these shoes, especially because of the wicked lug sole that goes UP the sides of the shoe.
The perfect exploring shoe for this little monkey. :)

Light weight and comfortable, they don't make your feet hot. The soles are great so there is good grip going down hill. I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melrod Best workboot for me
After two pregnancies, my arches collapsed and my foot got longer. I needed to replace my Oboz, which I wear for work as an engineer. I am on my feet surveying old buildings, sometimes in very wet conditions. I ordered two pairs of Keens and Merrell's because of the reviews and was not happy with them. I ended up with another pair of Oboz, went up one size. My feet are happy again! My old pair are 5 years old but still have a lot of life left in them. I wouldn't have replaced them but they were just too tight and uncomfortable. I am confident my new pair will last a long time, but if they don't I am glad I purchased them at LL Bean who has a great return policy.

I am going to return the boots, as the R one seems a little too small and probably will get a size 8 and a half. Will do this at the Burlington store.soon.
Good quality boots, tho a little warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by walknorthflorida So far, so good
I am still "breaking in" these boots, but they seem to be good out of the box. I have worn Merrills forever and they no longer seem to make a boot for me. The Oboz feel fairly stiff, but they hug your foot, coming up higher on the top of your foot.The toebox is wide which I find to be comfortable. They are lightweight as well. I haven't had them in wet conditions yet. I wear size 9 in dress shoes.The 9.5 Oboz are just right with hiking socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whidbeywoman these hiking shoes are great!
These shoes are comfortable from the first time you wear them. There is a wide enough toe area. Now my favorite hiking shoes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pondgal Great shoe, but be careful
I went into my local bean store, prepared to buy yet another pair of Merrell's. I work at a garden center so I need waterproof shoes that can stand up to all kinds of weather. My only complaint about Merrell's is the fact that they wear out in approx. 18 months, but they are super comfortable, so I stick with them. Other brands that I've tried wear out just as quickly. The sales lady suggested that I try Oboz's. I had never heard of them, but the lady was knowledgeable and helpful. I liked them as soon as I tried them on, so I bought them. Wore them 8+ hours the first two days that I had them and things were fine. On the third day, my heels/arches started to kill me after 3 hours. Stopped wearing them for a few days, pain got better. As soon as I put them back on, within a few hours, I was right back where I started. Gave myself a week & a half w/out wearing them and they still killed after a few hours. Sad to report that the arch is entirely too high and rigid for my medium arch foot, so I must return them. Too bad because they are a nice looking shoe and looks like they would have lasted much longer than the Merrell's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 5ft10inShopper Attractive Hiking Shoe
While I had really hoped that these shoes would work for me, they didn't. I have narrow, low profile feet. These shoes ran much wider than expected and didn't offer much arch support. The L. L. Bean return policy is excellent though and the shoe works for others.
