Rated 5 out of 5áby bitesizepeacemaker Finally, bought DUCK BOOTS!
I'd been intending to buy a pair for a few years now, since my mother has had hers for over 22 years. They fit perfectly and were comfortable, until I had to wear them all day during my busiest day of the week. By the time I got to work, I was exhausted. My feet were hurting. I didn't realize they were so heavy nor how warm they were. This is a great boot and I have been told by numerous folks they become much more comfortable once broken in. I am hoping this is true because I love them; I just made a crummy choice to wear them in NYC during 70║ weather when it only drizzled.
I wouldn't dissuade anyone from buying these boots, they are made to last and every last detail of the stitching is visible. It's a great boot and I am sure once broken in they will be much more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pattychar So glad I bought them for my daughter!
My daughter loves these boots and has worn them almost everyday since she got them. They are sturdy, but obviously comfortable enough to keep on all the time. She likes the style- and she is a city-kid- wears them to school. We bought them for winter water-proof season, but she will clearly be happy wearing them stomping around in the woods later this spring. We will definitely get another pair when she outgrows them. Worth the price.

My 11 year old Love, Love, LOVES these boots.
I did as reccommended and ordered a size down. we live on a lake and he loves exploring the area and his feet are comfortable,dry and warm. If we ever get snow, he will wear them in the snow too!
I also love the fact that they are made in the USA.

Rated 4 out of 5áby qualitymama Not what I expected
based on some of the other reviews, i ordered 2 sizes down and the boot was still loose fitting. despite that, the cushioning in the footbed makes the boot feel comfortable, if somewhat large. the product description led me to believe the whole boot was lined, and i was quite surprised to see the raw leather on the top. even a simple canvas or flannel lining would be helpful to keep the leather from staining socks. also, the nap of the leather has a way of pulling my socks down into my boot, even socks that normally stay up in other boots, which is annoying. as others mentioned, it would be nice if the laces were a tad longer, as they often come unlaced when loosening the boot to put on and off. would also be nice to have choice of color - black, blue and/or red, especially for kids, who aren't always keen on brown. while not perfect, i decided to live with them since i was desperately in need of some waterproof footwear.

I love these boots and so does my 9-year old son. They are a nice change from the clunky winter boots.

The boots are of excellent quality and workmanship. My daughter used to wear LLB storm chaser boots, but since they've been discontinued, I haven't been able to find a worthy replacement for our coastal climate. I just bought her a pair of these boots in the smallest size offered, and although they are a few sizes bigger than my daughter's feet, they still fit her well. I was pleasantly surprised that unlike gum boots, these are lightly insulated in the foot and the foot bed, so her feet won't freeze when it's wet and cold outside.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RedSoxMama Perfect for my 9 year old
It's tough to get your kids to wear weather appropriate clothing in the first place, and my son (9 y.o.) is too old for puddle boots. These are a great option for him, as his dad has a pair, too. They definitely keep his feet dry, and at his activity level, the laces are great, so you can really cinch them down. (He's run himself right out of puddle boots in years past.) Really well made - I'm sure we'll be able to hand these down to the next boy in our family.
Thanks LLBean for an option that's age appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TryingtobeaSupermom Best boots my daughter has ever had
We got these in December when it had just started to snow in our city. They were true to size, thanks to some great sizing help from Bean's online and phone staff. These boots have kept my daughter's feet warm and dry for months now (-10 to -15 temperatures), never once leaked and never wore out (and believe me, she wore them every day for four months) and still look wonderful. I'm contemplating handing them down to my youngest child when he gets older. Great job Bean, the reputation these boots have earned is well-deserved.
