Rated 5 out of 5 by morgan from Excellent Hiking Boots I recently bought these because I hike regularly and my current boots were hurting my feet. These boots had decent reviews and with the sale I thought I'd give them a shot. I wore them for the first time on an extreme hike, Mount Ka'ala on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The hike was 7 hours with extreme climbing and use of ropes. Also lots of mud. Not only did these shoes do well in this environment, they were extremely comfortable. No sore feet after. I was beyond impressed and so thrilled. I love that they protect the ankle and I like that the shoelaces are long enough to wrap around. My microspike cleats fit over these shoes perfectly. Thank you LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Snoozinc from Great boot so far I ordered a half-size up to make sure these would fit with thick socks and the size is great. I read the reviews about the area that causes rubbing on the ankle and indeed found it to be a problem at first. I was very disappointed because the boots were warm, waterproof and I really like the soles. So I decided to see if they would break in...and they DID! I tried tying the laces just a little looser at the top so that the rubbing was lessened. Within about three or four wearings on reasonably average walks, I found the rubbing was gone. I now can lace up tight and no pain. These were a good price, to boot (pun intended).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chilenadecorazon from Incredibly comfortable but tough! Was not sure what to expect buying these online, needed them for some light hiking but also have plans for more serious hikes. These needed no breaking in time! Incredible! Might be the most comfortable pair of shoes I own! They seem to run just a tad big, but with midweight socks work well. My expectations were surpassed! Wonderful hiking shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peewee from Quality Love these boots. They are quality and cute. I wore them around the house today to make sure they fit well. Like someone had commented the tongue of the boot hurt their ankle, so they returned them. It hurt mine at first, so I simply loosened the shoe laces a little and they were perfect. I wore them for a few hours and they weren't too heavy. This was a really good purchase and I usually can't buy shoes/boots on-line. Their service was very good. They only had sizes 7 & 8 and I wear a 6.5 normally in a ladies shoe, but chose the 7. They were perfect. Thank you for the good service. I was an LL Bean customer when in Lake Tahoe and needed these for hiking in southern Cal. Love your stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiseG from Gore-Tex Ascender boots I bought these boots a few weeks ago and am so pleased. Very comfortable. No break-in time needed. Great foot and ankle support. So far they're waterproof. Only drawback is they're hard to get on and lace. Once on they're super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ManhattanMaineGal from BEST HIKING BOOT! I bought these boots over a year ago and i LOVE them! I wear them hiking in Maine and they have great traction and ankle support. Super comfortable right out of the box and seem to be wearing well. Yes, takes a minute to lace up but those laces ensure a perfect fit. LOVE LOVE LOVE. True to size - with thick socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Runwilde from Awesome boot! I originally ordered my standard shoe size which is a 6 but found that to be a bit short in the toe so I returned it and got the 61/2. I love this boot! Comfy and dry. I don’t even notice I am wearing them. I love llBean!
