Rated 4 out of 5 by Heatwheat Great rain boots
I love these! I got an 8 because I wear warm socks when necessary. I also chose the black ones and always get complements on them. I have had them since spring 2014 and have gotten a lot of walks in the rain and snow in them. I am just finding now that the seam along the toe line is peeling back and water occasionally dampens my toes. I will be taking these into the company store in Freeport to see if I can get a new pair of the same. I have never walked in a more comfortable rain boot so I will hope the seam stays put this time around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex721 comfortable and cute
I haven't had the chance to really walk around in them yet, but so far (trying them out in the house) they are quite comfortable. The lining is soft and they fit true to size. They're pretty flexible--everything above the ankle moves fluidly when I walk, so no chafing. They are a little above mid-calf and look like they would have good traction. And of course, the designs are pretty (I got the red one).

Rated 5 out of 5 by evageneva LL Bean Quality AND super cute, too!
After a tedious search for a good pair of rain boots (a necessity for the blustery, snowy weather that is ever-present in my hometown), I stumbled across these Wellies. I couldn't be happier with the quality. They were put to good use already after three weeks of purchase: a rainy fundraiser delivery, a stormy Halloween night, and a weekend camping trip in the Adirondacks. The waterproof guarantee is no joke, the rubber soles seem to deflect all things that would normally turn a pair of UGGs into a soggy mess! The rubber soles are strong and firm, and to my surprise, the fabric doesn't stain as I thought it might. The fit is a bit wide, but I can't expect much as a skinny-legged, size 9 woman. They stay upright and don't make the dreaded 'Hunter boots sound' that is echoed throughout the city in miserable weather. Many friends and strangers have complimented the boots, and I have even led a few to ordering some for themselves.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the LL Bean quality I expected from these boots. They are functional on every level and the price is acceptable and understandable. I would highly recommend these boots as a lover of functional yet stylish outdoor gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Looking Forward to Wearing These
I ordered the black wellies and I'm looking forward to wearing them. I ordered a 9 (my usual size). They fit a bit large, however an 8 would be too small. I plan on wearing them with heavy socks and an extra inner sole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBeanShop2 Seams separating
I am terribly disappointed in these LL Bean Wellies. The seams are separating along the foot edge after only a couple of months. My prior pair of old LL Bean Wellies lasted for YEARS. Please bring back the quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OutdoorGirrrl wet feet!
I really want to love these boots! They are adorable and comfortable... After I bought the first pair and was convinced they were leaking, I read other reviews. Since there weren't many complaining of leakage, I decided to exchange them for a new pair and try again. My feet still get wet in the new pair... I am going to try them one more time- just with the hose in the yard- to make sure it's not a sweaty feet issue... But I'm afraid I'll have to take advantage of the return policy yet again... :( They are so cute though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BristolDeb Comfort and function
More supple than other "wellies" that I have worn. Comfortable and waterproof and attractive. Sized perfectly.
Since the material is not as stiff as other boots I have owned, I expect them to last years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LEWfromPA Happy (and dry) Feet
I purchased the Wellies for yard work. While they are comfortable enough to get my tasks done, it is too early to tell if they would be as comfortable for longer walks or a full day of shopping.
I am pleased with the quality and would recommend these boots to friends. No more wet feet for me ! And I was assured, if they did leak, I could return them at any time for a full refund or exchange. Wouldn't mind if there were a few more colors / patterns to choose from, then I might consider several pairs. The boots run large so I had to order a full size smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ktbt7 Good Rainboots
Love these so far. They are comfortable and have kept my feet dry the couple times I've worn them. The green color is a little brighter than I anticipated though! I'm still waiting to see if they crack like other people have mentioned, but I am hoping they won't. Because they aren't thick rubber, my feet feel like they breathe a little better in these than they could in other pairs of rain boots I've owned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lindsay Cute boot, but keeps breaking
Unfortunately, I have to write a negative review for this product. I really wanted to love them. I am on my second pair of these rain boots in two years, and I am going to return them because the rubber broke and split along the line of the bend between the ankle and the foot. This happened with my last pair, too, and I was hoping that LLBean would have improved the design in between. I don't even do a ridiculous amount of walking in them -- I just wear them around when it's raining.
Otherwise, the height and weight of the boot are great, and I love the patterns. I find it to be comfortable. But as soon as it gets a hole in the top of the foot from splitting where it bends, it is not useful as a rain boot anymore.
