by Royaltimothyjoseph My first llbean boot!
When I saw these boots in the catalog I requested. I said this might be the go to boot as well as what it's intended for. I needed a waterproof, sleek boot that hopefully wasn't entirely camo so I could incorporate it into work wardrobe and hiking, gun range etc. So far these boots are spot on. Miserable Ct snow, harsh cold and winds.. These boots are definitely water proof, comfy, athletic, trench warfare boots. They are comfortable to walk in or run and the boa system offers perfect lacing (the boa system is also my first time using and it's holding up and working phenomenal!) only thing that's not is this review is summer wearing and rain/heat weather. *maybe I'll update my review. Another thing is the inside of the boot and the liner and goretex membrane... You can feel the quality and warmth when you slip your foot in the boot. Like a silk lining.. Very nice and has a little design. Only thing is they're are no color options... Should have at least 2-3 color options. Also great boot you could have a lighter, less bulkier version that would be a nice lineup.. Thanks again ll bean! Ill be back for the upland kangaroo's :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pinecoon Warm, light and comfy boots...my feet say aahhh!!
Very nice boots, I really like this Boa lacing system...so, easy to use and adjust...evenly tightens laces when you want them tight and later in the day so easy to re-adjust if you want them a touch loose. To me, very much worth the extra money!! Bought these to wear only when I am hunting...I find myself wearing them to work now, because they are so light and comfy.
I believe they may turn into my favorite boots!!

This is not my first pair of the BOA type boot. I have three others and all are fantastic. The boots are light weight, waterproof, rugged and comfortable. No more having to deal with wet, muddy and/or broken laces thanks to the BOA system. My L.L. Bean BOA boots have survived the wilds of a Kodiak Island bear hunt to chasing pheasants in NH and hunting grouse and deer in the Western Mountains of Maine. Another L.L. Bean great product. I highly recommend them.

These boots quickly became my everyday boots. The BOA system is really reliable and quick, with endless tension possibilities. Comfort and support at its best! No break-in required. Consider ordering a half size bigger than normal because of the snug, lock-in heel fit.

I have done about 20 miles in these boots thus far, so still new. Initial impressions are very positive for comfort and ease of use. I am a big fan of the BOA lacing system and am looking forward to many more years of usage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AMERICANLONGHUNTER BEWARE THE LAST THIS BOOT WAS BUILT ON
If you have a EE wide foot, don't buy this model. It's built too narrow and because of its construction, it's inflexible. Bean's original BOA boot with the armor-plated look was perfect from the standpoint of properly fitting a wide foot. It featured a broad rounded toe and sufficient width across the ball of the foot. The new boot is built with minimum width across the ball of the foot and a semi-pointed toe. Just a lousy EE last.

This is my second pair and have been extremely pleased - comfortable, true to size and very durable. The BOA closure is the greatest innovation in shoes since the introduction of shoe laces.
Woild like to see these is in other than camouflage .

This is my second pair of boots using the BOA closure system purchased from LL Bean. I also have a pair of the original Technical boots. These are lightweight and comfortable from the very first day you put them on with virtually no break in time. It is far understated how the BOA system allows the boots to fit properly by tightening evenly from bottom to top allowing for ease of adjustment through the course of the day. Couple this with the classic quality of LL Bean and they have been a great purchase for me. I'm waiting for a version of the classic Maine Hunting Shoe to come out. I'll be the first one in line to buy a pair. Highly recommend any of these products for the fit, quality and usability right out of the box.
