Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmingDoc Initial impressions are great
I received these about 2 weeks ago. This is my first pair of anything from the Bean Boot line. So far I'm impressed, they appear to be well-crafted and are much more comfortable than I expected. Despite what I've read in a lot of other reviews I've actually been quite pleased with the traction I'm getting on ice and packed snow, although I certainly haven't tested them in the field. I usually wear a size 12 in tennis shoes, and a size 11.5 in dress shoes and work boots. For these a size 10 fits me like a glove, allowing me to slip in and out without issue and having just the right amount of heel-slip for a shoe of this type. If I ordered a pair of the regular Bean Boots, and I plan on doing so, I would order a size 11 so that I could use heavier socks with them. I bought these to have something to quickly slip into for running errands around town in wet summer or winter weather as well as working in the yard and garden during the summer. So far, for winter use, they are fulfilling their role wonderfully. I hope they hold-up well, and if they do, LL Bean will have a Bean Boot customer for life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ACOrange Nice moc but too large
The size of boots that I've purchased from LLBean in the past were 11M. This is the size I've worn for the last 50 years. LLBean says "buy 1 size down". So I order 10M. These shoes must be 2 sizes too large. These are extremely oversized on me. They fit more like a size 12 instead of a 10. They were not only too long, but are too wide as well. LLBean does not pay for return shipping so it has cost me $6.50 to return this pair. If you are considering this item you should probably buy these at an LLBean store where you can try on a few different sizes first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Simplythetruth Problem with leather laces
Although I love the LL Bean style and especially the look of these shoes, there is a problem with the leather laces not being able to be replaced (holes don`t allow for that) and there is no after service from the company to replace the laces when needed. Once the lace breaks, you have to buy a new pair or use them without laces.

I have owned 2 previous pairs; this is my third pairs and I wear mostly these all winter long. They are well built and what I like the most is that they are made in the USA, in Maine. I like to buy local products. I added a shearling insole from L L Bean and they are quite warm. Like the genuine leather and the rubber watherproof bottoms.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MsAP Not what they used to be
As a transplanted Northerner living in the South, I grew up wearing LL Bean "duck boots" and have always raved to my husband about them. So when he ordered them and they arrived I was saddened to see that 1) the quality is nowhere near what it used to be, they look like cheap plastic and 2) the sizing is WAY off, they're huge. He said they're very uncomfortable and I doubt this rubber/plastic stuff will ever "break in." I'm afraid they're going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jss150 Insanely Large - listen to the advice
I wear a 12 - 13 shoe. 12 in a quality loafer with very thin dress socks. 13 in an athletic shoe with thicker socks. I bought the very thick LL Bean boot socks to wear with these and ordered a 12. My feet still walked out of the shoe. I am sending back and will try an 11. Go a full size smaller even if you plan on wearing very thick socks.

Very durable however very prone to twist ankles due to heel being narrower than boot.Chain tread not very good traction; not long wearing will hydroplane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yukon5125 Excellent Review Advice
Several loyal Bean customers advised that these mocs ran a little large....In fact one reviewer said they wore a 9 - 9.5 mens, but to play it safe they ordered the moc in 8D. I did the same and the mocs fit perfectly. Same high quality LLBean gear, and mocs arrived in SC in 4 days from ME. Superior LL Bean products and service, yet again.
