Rated 2 out of 5 by Beabell Very stiff above ankle
These boots are of great quality, great heel height, truly the perfect boot BUT the leather is very stiff above the ankle. The 4th time I wore them was in a city where I had to walk about 10 blocks three times in a day. When I got home my legs above my ankle were raw and bleeding. I will try wrapping my legs next time and see if that helps. That's how perfect they are otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by merry41 Great pant boot
I just got these in January 2015. Ordered them because I needed a casual comfortable short boot to wear with jeans. I got them in the brown suede. I am very happy. I fit between an 7.5 and 8, so I ordered the 8. True to size they fit perfect. The heal is not too high. They are nicely made and appear to be very good quality. I tend to buy more expensive shoes and I really am pleased with getting such a good sale price on such a nice boot. They were exactly what I was looking for. I wore them all day and they felt great. Classic traditional well made shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AMMfromthefoothills Take a minute for them to adjust.
Like another review these boots were digging into my leg when they arrived. They don't do it anymore. I wore the boots two or three times with pants and left the zipper down about an inch. The instep has now stretched to my foot and I can zip the zipper up without any digging in. A great pair of boots, just take a minute for them to adjust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SCDesign Good looking boots!
A very nice pair of boots. If you are looking for a nice fashion boot, that you don't have to walk too long in, this could be a GREAT CHOICE.
Good looking with dress pants or jeans.
The heal is an attractive height.
They are fairly comfortable. They don't have much arch support, but I have added my own insert, which helps. My Achilles does start to hurt after walking for several hours. I wore these on a mall shopping outing- probably won't do that again.
They are fine for up and down, office work.
The construction seems to be of good workmanship with good materials.
The run fairly true to size. I ordered my usual size and wear them usually with a basic weight SmartWool sock.
All in all, they are a good buy. Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Connecticutnow My new go-to boots
Was excited to find these boots at a great price. Bought both the brown suede and black leather. Wore the suede immediately for a day of shopping and and have no complaints or " breaking in" issues. The sizing was accurate, a 7. The heel height is a nice change from the flat riding boots we all have been wearing for the last few years and I was happy to get back into jeans that were too long to wear with the flats. ( but it is not as high as dressier boots ) Also, the heel is on the "chunkier" side, (not a skinny sexy heel ) it feels more casual to me....perfect for an everyday run-around favorite boot. The dark brown suede is the perfect shade of brown for matching my fall/ winter clothes. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jr01 nice!
I got these today and wore them for a few hours. When I first put them on I thought I might have a problem with the front above my ankle, but they are fine. The zipper goes all the way down to the bottom of the shoe and makes them so easy to put on and take off. They have a nice size heel height and size. I like the casual look, and they look really expensive. Very happy! A really good buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by porkchop2 Leather too stiff
I liked the look of these boots, but found the leather quite stiff which made them not fit well even though the sizing was quite generous. I think they would be uncomfortable to wear for long so am sending them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by webgal318 Overall good boot
I just wore my new boots for the first time today as I live in Florida.I ordered a 1/2 size larger to accomodate wool socks. I had just light ankle high socks on today and the only negative I have to give is that the top of the boot is irritating to my lower leg. I am trying to soften the top with mink oil but even if that doesn't work, I will be OK as long as I wear higher socks. I would say that these boots are true to size. I had bunion surgery 18 months ago and my foot does not get sore at all in these. The toe box is ample without looking clunky. These are classic looking and will be nice to wear with dress pants or jeans. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTLNY I LOVE THEM
I have hard to fit feet, if the shoe doesn't fit, I don't wear it. These fit perfect, they feel great. The second time i wore them, I had to carry my 4 year old about a half mile, my feet didn't complain a bit. My only regret is that I didn't wait another week to order them since the price dropped $20!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chiclibra Perfect suede ankle boots
These boots are fabulous. The fit is true - I ordered an 8.5, my standard boot size, and they fit perfectly. They are very well constructed, with a beautiful stacked heel and a smart low-profile tread at the toe. I have not run into the issue with the top rubbing/chafing that some other reviewers have experienced. (I am 5'8" so maybe my height helps.) The boots are incredibly comfortable - like "all day on your feet" comfy. The sleek design and dark brown suede combine to create a chic look that will work with your favorite jeans or dress/skirt and tights combo. I adore these boots and would highly recommend them. Way to go, L.L. Bean! (Now please just re-stock your Signature Leather Ankle Boot in Light Saddle, and you will have another sale from me ;)
