Rated 5 out of 5áby TheAbominableSnowman Style. Function. Quality. The way it should be.
Just when I thought I could not be happier with my L.L.Bean experience, I bought a pair of these Waxed Canvas Maine Hunting Shoes. It don't get no better, folks (southern dialect implied). They are quite stylish as you can tuck your pants into the boot or drape them over and look trendy either way. I consider them to be the perfect blend of modern and classic footwear.
I tested them out immediately and wore them while working on a disc golf course design. With all the recent precipitation the ground is pretty sloppy. Mud and water were no match for these shoes, and the hike was quite comfortable as well. Be sure to adhere to the sizing chart guidelines for boots. I typically wear a 9.5, and the 8 is perfect.
It is no surprise these boots are legendary. The craftsmanship is superb and L.L.Bean's quality guarantee is unbeatable. And to top it all off, not only are they made in the USA, they are made locally in Maine - the way it should be.

I NEVER write reviews on anything. Even great things, I unfortunately never find time to write about, however it would be a crime for me not to say something. This boot is perfect. Light, warm, looks awesome, and feels amazingly comfortable. Do order a size down though.
Additionally, Bean Customer Service has to be the best in the world. I spoke with real people, who knew my name without having to tell them, made returning the first pair virtually work-hassle-stress free. They even chatted with me about color, and ensured me that my new pair would be here by Friday at the latest and apologized I didn't get to use my first pair (too big) in latest storm that brought about a foot of snow. Like she actually told me this haha. Outstanding. Seriously they should win an award.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cmos LL BEAN heritage and quality in a fantastic boot.
*Disclaimer, it took a couple of times for me to get this right, b/c these boots run Extremely big. I am a size 10 1/2 usually, and I ended up with the 9's, which are a tad snug on the width, but still slip a bit in the heel. Also the color in the pics online is not exactly what you get, the forest color, which another reviewer posted a pic of the pair that came in the box, is much darker, and much better than seen online.
I love these boots, can wear them all year, manhattan to maine.
and love llbean, best customer service and quality in the business.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Darko Excellent Boot
I got my order extremely quickly. Ordered on a Tuesday, Delivered on a Friday.
The boots even come with a card of who made them, now that's american made.
One thing that surprised me about the boot is how extremely light the boot is. Maybe it's because of the waxed canvas, but the marsh brown looks exactly like the photos but lighter in weight (looks heavier in the photos). I usually wear a 8.5, but ordered a 7 as most boots tend to run 1-1.5 sizes large. It's still roomy, but enough for a thick sock.

Rated 4 out of 5áby hupdiggs Quality build, will own for years
love these boots. the material, construction and quality = top notch.
I normally wear anything from size 10-11 in other brands but ordered a 9 in these boots. They are plenty big, even with smart wool socks.
one small note: I have to tie them pretty tight so my heel does not slip. perhaps that's because I have a narrow heel.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LLBeanFirstTimerKC Good boots
These boots have great style and so far have kept me dry. My only concern is the shoe laces--the first time I laced them up the laces "split", if you will, revealing the white underneath. Not too impressed with that. But everything else seems fine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bayshore Great Fit, Second time around. Look Fresh!
I am a size 10.5 and I bought the 10's. I wore them a few times and they were just too big. I ended up returning them for the 9's and they fit perfectly. They are a very light and fashionable boot. WEar them in the city or out in the woods!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Texas45 Great value
These boots are very comfortable and keep your feet dry and warm. I ordered the half size down and they are a little roomy with regular socks. I liked them so much I ordered my son a pair for Christmas. He loves them too!

Oh my goodness. These shoes not only look good, but they feel good. Be warned however, the green in the pictures are darker than they appeared, which is perfect for me( think... Forest/Hunter Green) They are rather comfortable, as I bought my exact shoe size as LL Bean Signatures have a different fit. This is my second Signature purchase and most definitely, it will not be the last.
