L.L.Bean Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Leather


Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $199.99


Extremely comfortable straight from the box. I struggle to find boots that fit my feet comfortably. These boots fit like a dream.


  • Feel great.
  • Great support.


  • Replace the last three lacing hooks with something different.

I work as a paramedic and have struggled for years to find plain black hiking boots. I have weak ankles from previous injuries and difficult to fit feet.

These boots are definitely the most comfortable boots I have owned in a long time. I do not like the Paratrooper, Military or Police officer style boots. Just give me a good pair of hiking boots and I'm a happy camper. These boots are perfect. I hope LL Bean continues to carry these in black, a uniform requirement.

I've only worn them for a week so I cannot attest to their durability, but I'm sure LLBean will go good if I have a problem.
