Rated 5 out of 5 by wishyouwell Very satisfied
The previous reviews were right on target in recommending the purchase of one size larger than one's normal shoe size. While they are a little tight when attempting to put one's foot into the boot, they are a great fit and very comfortable for walking once they are on. The only adjustment I had to make is to loosen the top strap when wearing as they were too restrictive on the front part of my lower legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PursuingMyInterests Winter boots for my next trip to Iceland
These boots fit well and are warm as toast (tested outside for a couple of hours in 10F, never felt any cold in my feet). Also I wore them inside for a couple of days to see if my feet overheated or sweated - neither happened. I'm very satisfied with these, especially with the velcro laceup, easy to do with cold hands. I was worried about the fit ordering online, and I ordered 1/2 size up to accomodate heavy wool socks; I lucked out and got it right.

I liked the boots when walking in the house, especially the easy on/off with the hook and loop, which is why I purchased them. I did not have trouble getting them on but my feet are narrow and I had initially been concerned they would be too wide. They were uncomfortable when wearing on the first walk, however. They seemed tight and inflexible on the top of my foot. I will try thicker socks and will work on breaking them in, but their discomfort was unexpected and I am disappointed for now.

When I ordered these boots I ordered a full size larger than normal.I had read the reviews saying how small they were running. When they came in I tried and tried most of the day to get them on but no luck. I tossed them back in the box and decided to send them back the next day. Later that night I decided I was getting these on and worked for over a half hour to get the left one on. Another twenty minutes and the right one was on. They were not that hard to get off and over the next few days they became easier to get on each time I wore them. Once on they were a great fitting and comfortable boot around the foot. The true test came last week when our temps went into the - 15 F to -20 F range. My feet stayed extremely warm and dry for hours in very deep snow. These boots are the best I have ever had for hunting and all around cold weather walking. There is a stiff bar just above the ankle bone that helps to hold them on your foot. The first few times you put them on (maybe 7-10 times) it takes a lot of work to get your foot below it. After they break-in a little this becomes easier and easier. If you buy these and they are too tight just work with them. The boot is well worth the effort. The second great thing about these boots are they come from LL Bean,so if you work on them for two or three weeks and you can't succeed on loosing them up they will still take them back. So you have nothing to loose but a great boot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Skyhawk45 Size matters!
Very disappointed with this purchase. Before ordering, I read comments here about sizing. I normally wear a 10 1/2 D so I ordered a size 11. Length was too short and the width definitely not a D. Made it very difficult to get my foot into the boot with boot socks.
Also, be aware that these are not light in weight. Each boot weighs approximately 36 oz, Far too heavy for what I was looking for in a snowboot.
I've returned for a refund.

I bought these boots for my dad who hates to have cold feet. These did the trick. Size was just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vmax1992 Not for me
The +, light weight, well made, would have done what I needed.
The -, could not get my them on. I have a high instep, makes many boots hard to put on. I wanted the hook & loop for speed, but will need to look at lace up. Nothing against the boot, it's my feet. Return was the easiest ever, quick refund to my account.

Loved the price but the other reviews I read were correct. These boots run small. We even ordered the next size up for my husband and he couldn't even get one of them on his foot. We are exchanging them for another style.
