Rated 3 out of 5áby CLC127 Not a good fit
I need a good, sturdy, comfy pair of walking boots for a fall trip to Ireland. Want something sensible but stylish. I had high hopes for this boot. I have wider calves and the size 8 fit just fine there (but a little tight thru the ankle). But the heel/ankle area rubbed really bad and I don't think it was just a "breaking in" thing. I need something that is comfortable and pain free from the box. So as much as I love the look and quality of these boots, I had to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LAHCT Love these boots!
I wear a 7-7.5, but have wide feet, and often order an 8 to accommodate. My instep and calves are comparatively smaller, so many boots that fit my feet do not work for me. These boots are wonderfully forgiving: 7.5 wide fits my wide feet (with room for orthotics), but my calves don't swim - wide enough for a larger calf or jeans tucked in, but not sloppy. The buckles and shape leave room for different fits without sacrificing a flattering style. Best of all, I've worn these with jeans, leggings and dresses this winter in New England, New York City, and Montreal. They are warm, stylish and comfortable covering miles of slushy, icy city streets. Excellent quality!

Rated 5 out of 5áby OgdenMonk Great Boots for my wife
Got the boots ahead of schedule. My wife slipped and fell with her "designer" boots. Got her the Park Ridge boots and she loves the tread on the boot and they look great she says.

Rated 5 out of 5áby momincuse Great Pair of Boots
I fell in love with these boots and I ordered the black ones I love how they look! I was happy to see they came in wide width. I wear a 6.5 wide and the fit is perfect. They do not pinch in the toes or heels at all. The height of the boot,ends up, for me at about an inch 1/2 below my knee I am 5'3" tall. There is one draw back but it seems that now days it is how boots are made. I find you have to really push your foot in at the ankle but once you do get past all is well and using a shoe horn makes all the difference. These boots feel like you are wearing a comfy pair of sneakers, good traction on the bottoms too. Well made and great looking I am very pleased with these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Artsgal1212 Comfortable and stylish snow boots
Definitely recommend. Warm and comfortable, w no break in period required. Can even wear w casual skirt or dress. Love the buckle detail. Can look nice in bad weather now, without wearing terribly clunky boots. I ordered 1/2 size up so I could wear woolen socks. Works well. Did not find the calf tight. I am average build.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Em93 Great boot, slightly tight in calf
I bought this boot praying that it would fit after reading all of the reviews about the calf circumference, and I was SO happy when I tried them on that they zipped up. I have about 16'' calves, bordering on needing a wide-calf boot, and I ordered a size 7 1/2 wide. I was able to zip them up all the way, but they were a little tight around the calf. I stretched out the calf a little bit myself, and now can wear skinny jeans with them, no problem. LOVE the casual, earthy look of the boot.. also super comfy. 4 stars because I needed to stretch them in the calf a bit, but otherwise super happy!

These boots are quite handsome, but they were too tight for me, so I?m returning them. I might try the next higher size, but I usually wear a 7 1/2 medium, and LL Bean is usually quite consistent on sizes, so Ihaven?t yet decided about ordering the larger one.

I would love these boots in either the black with a little more pizzazz, or possibly a dark grey with black or lighter gray accents???
The black option is a little dull, and the red and olive accents on the brown don't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Poetryinmotion These boots were made for walking
These attractive boots met all my requirements: black leather, wide width, stylish, comfortable and good for walking confidently on snow and ice. As of yet, I've not worn them outdoors, but they have flat soles with good tread so I believe they will be up to the task.
The only drawback (as noted by a number of others), is that they are very narrow in the ankle area so it does take a little time to ease my foot in. Once in, they are very comfortable and feel like a good fit.
I'm looking forward to wearing them with knee-length skirts and dresses and colorful leotards.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DL11Shopper Great boot!
I got an 8 1/2 and I usually wear a wide in shoes/sneakers. In boots I can't wear a wide because the calves are already too big.
I didn't even have to worry about this though because regular fit was perfect for me. The toe box is spacious and wide enough to accommodate the usual fit I expect from a boot without having to compromise on size (like going up a size just so the whole shoe is bigger). The look and feel is fantastic too, I love the rubber bottom sole. Basically I love them and you probably will too.
