by Mlb84 Pretty and functional boots!
I've only had these boots for a few days, but so far they've been really nice. I was worried about the reviews that said they were narrow since I usually wear a wide, but they turned out fitting really nicely. For me, they fit better with thin athletic socks, but they are warm enough I haven't felt the need to wear something heavier even in 35 degree weather. They also get wider at the ankle so when it's muddy out its easy to fit your pant leg inside. I've only had them on one rainy day, but my socks were still dry when I went through a big puddle so so far so good on that front. I didn't give it a full 5 stars because they are narrow and hug my feet and because they scuff fairly easily. I tried to use one shoe to slide off the other one and it left a big scuff mark. Overall, I really love these boots. They were easy to wear right out of the box, as in I took them out of the box and took my dog for a two mile walk and my feet were perfectly happy! I bought these so that when I travel I can take only one pair of boots to deal with rain and hiking as well as look nice enough that I could use them to go out to dinner or walk around in the city and these seem like they will deliver!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LOVEMM feel I receive someone's return.
There are some scratches and wrinkles on the shoes. I feel I have someone's return. Other than that this is a good pair of shoes. Now I need to figure out if I want to return it since I will be charged for return shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robinfaith Best boots ever!
Not only do these look really cool, I get compliments all the time. As a size 11 I was worried they'd run small in length. They fit perfectly almost zero break in time. They work well here on the "wet coast" of Canada and have resisted the rain quite well. The leather is thicker than expected, so great wear and while I can say I'd eventually put orthotic inserts for more arch support at some point, for now they're super comfy.I'm considering the black ones now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rphoto My favorite casual boot
I bought these for a Summer weekend camping in Vermont, and have since worn them while hiking on rocky trails in Colorado, Utah, & California walking on slippery glaciers in Alaska and through wet creeks in Arkansas & Missouri.
In colder temperatures I wear a pair of hiking SmartWool socks with them, but otherwise a thinner pair do. They look great and are very comfortable. They're the perfect shoe for when you need more than a sneaker, but not a serious hiking boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mejaybay weird fit
These were an investment on my part because of having progressive rheumatoid arthritis and needing reliable footwear. I need boots that are easy to get on and off, wide enough to allow for deformity and swelling, and supportive enough that I have secure footing. I found these hard to get on, and narrow, but they had enough toe room and were easy for me to stand on because of the thick soles. The zipper got jammed on the lining which would have been a huge problem for me with my hands. The idea of them getting scuffed and worn over the years appealed to me but they arrived fairly scuffed and beat up. The bison color is not the same in person. It's more of a caramel. I returned them.

by ReallyRaisedOnLLBean If you're on the fence, buy these boots!
Boots arrived a day early, thanks LL Bean! Was able to take them to a music festival where I spent three days & nights dancing in the rain & mud and hiking between music venues & campgrounds in complete comfort. Boots have great traction and are completely waterproof. Was worried about stains and scratches but as other reviewers have mentioned, these boots just gain character as you wear them. Thanks to other reviewers, I ordered 1/2 size up and am happy I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLevy Too narrow
I love the look of the boots but... I couldn't even get my foot past the ankle even with the zipper down. I don't have an extra wide foot and usually i can at least get my foot in a boot before determining if its too narrow. I ordered my correct size, 7 so I think since I like the look of the boot so much I will order again in a 7.5. Crossing my fingers these will work. Its a classy, rustic boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Geranium1954 Comfortable but...
Bought these boots last season. Loved the look and feel of these boots, however they fit too tight around the calf so skinny jeans pull up out of the boot and bunch up at the top of the boot. If they could fix that, it would be a perfect boot! Ended up returning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by km01 Warm and dry
I got these in the brown knowing they are a rustic look and that they will get some scuffs which make them look broken in. After about 2 months they definitely look a bit worn. They are nice and roomy and I would order your actual size. Plenty of room in the toe box. They have kept my feet dry in rain. Only downside is no arch support which I need and they don't have much cushioning in the sole.
