Rated 2 out of 5 by PorkandMaj Not waterproof and straps shredded after 1 month
Bought three pairs of these in November for our two boys and one girl, ages 5, 6 and 8. Within 1 month of wear, the Velcro straps were all frayed. Even worse, we have had to put the boots on boot dryers every day as they are NOT waterproof. The uppers let moisture in and they are too short. We will be returning them as we are very unsatisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 Best boot with one flaw
These are the best boots: the fit is great, they're warm and my child says they are comfortable. The tread on the bottom of the boot keeps the wearer from slipping. I will purchase these boots for years to come. The only caveat is the straps get stuck in the Velcro and it causes them to fray profusely. The straps are strong enough, so it looks like it will continue to hold but it makes them look terrible. If it weren't for this, I would have given the boots a five-star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cyclingmonkey Great boot with one problem
I ordered these boots for my 5 year old despite the mixed reviews. According to the 5 year old these are great boots because they are warm, comfortable, and easy to get on when the velcro is open. The only downside is that they are a bit short which allows for snow to sneak inside the boot making it uncomfortable. I would recommend these to a friend but hope that LLBean will make them taller for next winter so we can buy them again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RickInHelena Straps lasted 1 month
So, I love all things LL Bean. My daughter received these boots as a Christmas present and, since we Live in Montana, they were well needed. Unfortunately, in less than 1 month of wear, the two velcro straps had completely disintegrated. I thought at first our dog had chewed them, that;s how bad they looked. But no, they were just completely falling apart. It's now the beginning of February and I'm trying to decide what to do. All of the winter boots at ll bean, and every other retailer are completely sold out and we still have a few months of need left for boots. I want to return these b/c I feel there must have been a manufacturing defect, but we're kind of stuck in a bind with what she should wear in the mean time. While this won't keep me from buying LL Bean products in the future, I am very disappointed in the quality of the straps on these boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NHMom2015 Love them, but the straps are too long and shred
My daughter loves these more than her Bogs. She usually chooses to wear these, but, as I have seen other reviewers write, the straps do shred. Pulling the strap tight enough around her ankle makes the strap hang way off, leaving the velcro on the bottom to attach to the strap rather than the upper velcro. That causes the nylon strap to come apart. But, great boot otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pestypants Great boots!
My daughter loves these boots and so do I! She never complains that her feet are cold or wet and the tread on the bottom is nice for climbing back up the hill in the snow while sledding. I've shopped around at other chain shoe stores for snow boots and still the quality and price of LLBean still keeps me buying them every year. This is our 4th pair of these boots...have to keep buying a new pair every year because of growing feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaFranklin A Great Snow Boot
This snow boot worked very well for my daughter who is picky and sensitive to ill fitting shoes and clothes. We are inexperienced with snow gear and visited family in Minnesota this winter. I bought these boots online without even trying them on her and she found them to be a perfect fit and very comfortable and functional in the snow. It made for a very good experience and I hope to buy some more pairs for her brothers the next time we visit he snow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by musicowls runs way small!
Bought a boys size 4, which is his size, they are so small my son could not get his foot even part way down the shaft. I do not know who they think this boot is made for, but it's so tight across the Lshaped portion, no way was he getting these on. Will be returning, disappointed because the bigger size is not available, but they look sturdy & well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pinkboots Straps shred to easy!!
Cute boots but that's about it. My daughter has been wearing these since Thanksgiving and not on a daily basis, the straps have almost fully shredded and now they are out of stock so we are stuck waiting for a replacement pair.
