Rated 4 out of 5 by Northeastern2011 Good, but not very durable
I loved these boots for a while, but I have had two pairs of them now and the fabric by the heel of the shoe keeps rubbing off and exposing the hard plastic behind it. They are still waterproof and if I wear thick socks it doesn't bother me, but I will still be returning them for the second time to get a new pair (take advantage of LLBean's return policy - they have a lifetime guarantee for all their products! They'll send you a new pair for free).

Rated 1 out of 5 by KBRinNYC Should have read the reviews first.
I was genuinely shocked to find that after a less than a year of not-very-regular wear, these are split along the seams (and elsewhere!) on both boots. The rain boots I had before these were second-hand from the thrift store and they lasted longer! I'm returning these boots and definitely not buying them again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChrsNY Not long lasting!
I love how these feel and look. Very comfortable for a rubber boot. But sadly after a few months of relatively limited wear, one boot cracked at the seam by the toe and my feet kept getting wet. I duct taped them for now, but will not be ordering another pair. They are not exactly cheap, so one would hope they'd last at least a year!! Not sure I'd recommend these...:(

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frequentrainwalker Disappointed
I have had my boots for 9 months and they already have 4 holes. They emerged were the seems of the boots join. And they keep getting larger each time I wear them. I needed a durable boot and did research prior to purchase and am extremely disappointed they won't get me through a second season. However they are comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NYCLLBeanfiend Used to be better
I had a pair of LLBean wellies that lasted me from my late teens through my early thirties. I wore them in snowstorms and rainstorms across the US. Then, finally, the seam split. I replaced them with a fresh pair, but the arch support is weaker, the rubber is floppier (so that the ankle has less support), and I feel like an awkward duck in them. Sadly, I will be returning them and continuing my replacement search.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sothlice Boots good, print not
I like the Wellies very much, so when I ordered this less expensive pair for my sister-in-law as a gift, I was disappointed -- you get what you pay for. The quality of the FIT and FUNCTIONALITY is just fine, but the sailboat color is horrid! It is like a bled, muted orange-red, and the sailboats look like they're print-screened on, all awkwardly colored. It is no where as vibrant and classy as the photograph suggests.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gardener82 Cracking after 2 1/2 months
Great fit, lightweight, and nice look. Unfortunately, they started to crack after only 2 1/2 months and I will be returning them. I use them while working in my garden and while caring for my chickens and pigs. Saw some other similar comments about them cracking as well, so I'm off to find a different brand. Sad to say that I'm disappointed in the quality of this Llbean product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by libertylady 2nd pair of cracked wellies
I returned my first pair of boots for another, assuming and hoping that my cracked boots were the exception to the rule. In a very short amount of time, about 1 - 2 months, my new ones are cracked as well. I finally tired of my feet getting wet every morning when I go out to tend the chickens and threw them in the trash. It is not worth paying for shipping again to get another pair that will just crack again. What a disappointment! I love the look of my dark green boots and they're comfy but are of no use if they are broken!

Rated 5 out of 5 by charter1 Love my Wellies
My new Wellies just arrived and I love them. Very comfortable and true to size. I wear an 8 shoe and the 8 boot was perfect. My previous Wellingtons were 20 years old. They had Thinsulate lining. I wish that were available again, so I could wear the boot year around. How about it LLBean. Wellingtons with a thinsulate lining.

I'm so pleased with these boots! They are definitely passing the test of time as have all of my LLBean footwear that I have purchased over the years. Summer rains are nonexistent here in California and having purchased these in early summer, how can I make such a claim. Gardening! If you love gardening you'll love these boots. No more wet feet. Walks in and around plants and bushes etc, a pleasure. Great protection and great style. Style in the garden? Why not! With these boots doing so well in the garden, a walk in the rain will put me on easy street.
