Women's Storm Chaser Boots 5, Zip is rated out of 5 by 47.
Rated 3 out of 5 by vtdawn from Warm and cute, but the zippers are problematic. The first pair of these I received had an issue with the teeth of the zipper on the right boot, so it could only be unzipped half way. I returned that pair and ordered a new pair. The left boot of the second pair gets caught up with the fabric folded inside the boot behind the zipper so it can only easily unzip 3/4 of the way. I like them so I deal with it and just don't zipper them most of the time for now. Once it is snowier I'll probably regret not exchange them for a third pair though. If only I had the left from the first pair and the right from the second I'd have a perfect pair. They are very cute, comfortable and warm though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamela from Perfect Attractive style, very lightweight, comfy, and roomy enough for those thick socks or inserts. Well formed. Lovely design around cuff, soft, non restricting. Just the right boot for easily zipping on and buzzing about. There are many boots out there designed like this with rubber sole and leather upper, but these are excellent and surpass all others like it that i have had. Made right, just perfect. Cheers to the person who designed these wonderful boots...thank you. Love at first sight. My feet are old, riddled with arthritis and have also had surgery, now LLBean is the only footwear that i can wear and trust to fit my size 11 hurting feet and find comfort. Grateful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopper from Wow great improvement compared to Storm Chasers An orthopedic Dr told me to always look for comfort first in any shoe etc. This boot provides that to the extreme. Nicely done. But the sizing for me is off. It was at least a full size off if wearing medium to thin weight sock. I am a true 7.5 all the time. I plan on wearing a heavier sock and when there is snow on the ground. I have no doubt that this is a truly warm boot. But overall I may keep them instead of sizing down because the socks and an insert will do the trick without taking away from the boot itself. Great find and you won't be disappointed. Love the new style. Just to mention they are very light weight compared to Storm Chasers prior style and not stiff another bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildflower from Perfect! I thought about this purchase long and hard...ordering shoes online is tricky! But, I can truly say that these boots are perfect in every way. I am a 40 in European sizes, so went with a size 9. With a medium weight wool sock, my feet have room to spread out a bit and be comfortable but not sloppy. They are very cute (I have the brown) with skirts or pants. Easy on, easy off. Incredibly warm and waterproof...I walk through puddles whenever possible now. ( : I can't say enough about the goodness of these boots. I'm getting ready to order my daughter a pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyHanh from Nor'easter tested! I was looking for a good snow boot that is waterproof, slip on (no laces), lightweight, grippy, and comfortable. This fits the bill! Tested in today's Nor'easter-- no slipping and I didn't have to think about my feet staying warm while walking or shoveling. I also find the soles of these boots more comfortable and stable than the duck boots, where the heel makes me feel off balance. No need to order a 1/2 size up to fit with thicker socks. The one thing to note is that the sherpa lining shows more than is pictured. I don't mind it, but just something to note.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Madeline from Women Storm Chasers Zip up I've tried on several pairs of zip up boots. So far this pair is best. I wanted a pair I didn't have to lace up. And that my pant legs would fit over the boot shaft. I always have a problem with the inner cover for the zipper to rub one of my ankles. If I wear a thicker sock I found the cover does not rub my ankle on the left foot of these boots. I have another pair of LL Bean lace up rain shoes. (Not boots, which LL Bean no longer carries) and my feet are dry. I have not had a chance to wear them in the snow yet. But I am sure the boot will keep the snow from falling into foot area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skylarking from Pluses and minuses There are many good details in this boot’s design. It is lighter in weight than the older version of Storm Chasers that I had, they are warm, the lining is comfortable, and they kept my feet dry while shoveling sleety snow. The problem for me is with the cuff/leg portion of the boot. It is extremely stiff and unforgiving. I had hoped to wear this on my winter walks but after 2 miles I had to turn around and head back as the repeated bouncing of the cuff on my leg with each stride started to chafe against my skin. I purchased the taller version for outside hikes in deep(er) snow but the rigidity of the boot top makes this an uncomfortable proposition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Albin25 from Storm Chaser Boots I bought these boots specifically because they have zippers instead of laces. I sent the first pair back as one of the zippers kept getting hung up in one specific spot. With my second pair, both zippers get hung up on the gusset as it does not extend to the top of the boot. I like these boots. They fit perfectly and keep my feet warm and dry and so I have decided to keep them in spite of the aggravating design flaw. I would not purchase them again if this boot can't be made to zip up and down without having to fuss with them every single time. If you have arthritis in your hands these boots will not make you happy. Perhaps a zipper on the front instead of the side would be a better design? Great boots, just not "user-friendly" with those zippers.
