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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogsrpeople2 Love these boots
I love these boots -- bought them in brown and wear them regularly. My feet are wide and I have a bunion on one foot, but these fit fine with a cotton sock (would need to go up a half-size for thicker socks). The brown is a bit rustic; these are not dressy boots. They have a very faint nap and do show scuffs. They are comfy.
In the past month, I wore them to a baseball game in the pouring rain; I wore them on a road trip and walked in the desert; i wear them around town. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by daveen so comfy
so glad i got these. they were shipped within the week and fit perfectly. i usually wear a size 8 and these are really true to size. they are good for walking around in the mush and snow and also nice enough to add to a stocking/skirt outfit. i was looking for a basic pair of black boots and these are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JG99 Great from the first step
These boots fulfilled everything I was looking for an more. I have some healed broken bones in my foot that makes wearing some shoes all day a nightmare but these fit perfect and an all day trek causes no pain. They look great and feel even better. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clairelinn I didn't think I was going to like them...but....
The moment I got my boots I broke them out of the box and tried one of them on. After reading all the reviews I was anticipating a comfortable fit immediately. However, when I first tried one of the boots on it felt tight in the heel and kinda rough. I was bummed.
I took off the boot and put the pair aside and went about my chores. While I was working I noticed I was sliding around in my socks and it dawned on me that the problem I felt with the boot may not have been the boot...but rather the sock. So...I went back and tried them on again with a snugger (is that a word?) fitting sock. Oh my goodness! It was an amazing fit. I walked around the house with them on and the more I walked in them...the more comfortable they felt. I LOVE these boots!
I took a suggestion from one of the other reviews and got a half size bigger. Glad I did. I am normally 7.5...but the 8 fits perfectly. I have an average width foot and these fit just fine. I also have a high instep which also limits the types and brands of boots I can wear. No problems here.
It was worth the price. I was hoping that Teva made a work boot for my husband in that I love the arch support in this boot as well as the comfort.
I would highly recommend! Thanks LL Bean for another fine product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Traveler20 Great boots
These are great boots. They are very comfortable, you can walk and stand in them all day long. Waterproof: my feet are never get wet on a rainy day and stay dry with the right socks. The black ones keep their shine and just need some brushing. The brown are a little more rugged looking.
