Women's Westport Boots, Tall is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and comfort I love these boots! I was looking for a low heeled tall boot for casual wear. I received an email with these boots featured and immediately liked the style. I decided the heel height and the price were reasonable, so I thought I would try them. I am so glad I did! These boots are the usual top quality and craftsmanship that I have become to expect of LL Bean.I put them on and instant comfort. The soft leather is quality leather that keeps its shape and is the definition of comfort. I have worn them several times with jeans, leggings and the LL Bean weekend skirt. They look and feel good with everything. Great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall Good So I do like this shoe, I really do. The first time I wore it I got blisters, but after that they were perfectly comfortable and I never had any issues. I know this boot markets as water-resistant and that's the only issue I really had with them. The first time I wore them when it was slightly raining, water got through to my socks from the soles. I don't know if it's just an issue with the pair I got, but I shouldn't be getting water seeping through the soles. I'm disappointed at L.L.Bean for that, but for an overall good black boot. I just now know not to wear them if there's even a chance of rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I see why these boots keep selling out! I can see why this particular boot keeps selling out. These boots are simply gorgeous. I was worried they might be too wide in the calf after reading some of the reviews, but I decided to take a chance when they had my size back in stock. I'm so glad I did. They fit me perfectly and were true to size. I'm not sure why some people feel the calf is too wide in these. For the record, my calves are muscular but not fat at all. I have not ever required or worn wide-calf boots. I would highly recommend these boots. They offer good support and the leather is gorgeous. I am sure these will be my go-to boots for years to come. Another LL Bean winner!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice tooking, poor quality! These boots are beautiful and comfortable, but I'm extremely disappointed by the quality of the heel. After one season of wear, the heels on both booths fell off completely! I was pleased when LL Bean replaced them for me because they were so comfortable, but now -- after less than one season of wear, my second pair is wearing down and falling apart. This is not an issue I generally have, even with less expensive shoes and boots! A colleague with the same boots is having the exact same issue -- it's clearly a problem with the material the heel is made from! Very disappointing for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winning Westports What I like: The leather is soft and is a beautiful, rich brown. These boots are so comfortable that I wore them straight out of the box without having to break them in at all. I ordered my usual Size 8.5. (medium width). The foot is amply long and wide enough to wear wooly socks and still have loads of wiggle room. I like the mid-calf zipper which makes it easy to reach inside to adjust any fullness of fabric worn underneath. Not-so-mich: For average-width calves, the top of this boot is very wide, even on top of straight-cut jeans. When I tried to tighten it using the buckle, I did not like how it scrunched up. If you have slim legs, you may find these boots too loose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Heartbreak These are beautiful boots, and they come in wide shoe sizes (very rare). I fell in love with them. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition.I ordered an half-size large for sock room, but that was unnecessary. My normal 7.5W would have fit my foot perfectly. My problem was that the ankle portion was very large and loose around the top of my foot, and the shaft ended at the widest part of my calf, so it was tight. I spoke with an associate and learned that 14" is a pretty average height for a tall boot. At 5'6", I'm not that tall, but the length of my leg from ankle to knee must be longer than most.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of Disappointed Had my eye on these for a while because I wanted real leather. Finally bought them but returned them immediately. The shaft was too big and the width of the foot was too small. Also, the style was disappointing which is why I didn't exchange for a different size. The lack of detail around the ankle, and the cut, made it look like I had fat ankles. Not very flattering. I did receive my refund in a relatively timely manner, however, even though it did cost me $6.50 for shipping. Overall sorry I ordered them after looking at them for so long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots but poor construction I just started wearing these boots to work for about 10 days since the temperature dropped below 40s. But today I just noticed the right side of the boots was not sewn well together. It's not that big but still noticeable. The soles are also not sturdy, I can already see the wear and I have only worn it for a short period of time. For reference, I am 5'4, petite 110 lbs so I am not that heavy. Our place is also just a two minute walk to work. Sad but I have to send this back. :(
