In this post I reviewed the L.L. Bean Harness boot and said they were too wonky and I'd return them.  And then snow happened, and these boots were amazing on ice and trudging through slush.  They were so easy to slip on and off at the front door, and with an addition of shearling insoles they were cozy and warm.  With wear, they got a bit slouchy which made them look less wonky with my wide calves and well… I just liked them too much to care too much about things like calf flattery. I wear them on many weekends; I wore them in this post, and I wore this look for a day of running errands, having lunch with girl friends, and curling up on the couch and watching The Wizard of Oz with Emerson.

    I think the boots really compliment the whole outfit!

    The boots look great on you! I love this style and have similar issues (big calves) with the added problem of arthritis in one foot which necessitates a true wide width. While it’s not a true harness boot, SoftWalk Bellville has a similar look and goes up to a WW width! I got my first pair in 2013, have worn them to death and just ordered a new pair. For anyone who really needs a wide width, I highly recommend these!

      It’s Revlon Matte in Wine Not, think it’s now discontinued but Revlon’s Super Lustrous in Black Cherry is pretty similar

    I think these boots look great on you–and clearly they are very functional. So great that you kept them!

      Me too, wore them yesterday for an impromptu hike in the woods and my feet were dry and comfortable!
