Rated 5 out of 5áby sweetpamela Women's Bean Boots
I ordered these boots for me. I am a nurse and live in the Tennessee mountains, so I am in and out of mud, snow and slush in the winter. The boots are a little large and I did order them a size smaller than I normally wear, but I wear winter heavy socks anyway so that takes up any spare room. I have been wearing these with my scrubs and they look fine. I am on my feet all day and they are very comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MKHill Don't trust the size guide
I had to return the shoes for a larger size so I haven't had a chance to wear them yet. Quality seemed superb and I anticipate them to be great as all their other products, however, I followed the size guide to the letter and the shoe was WAY-Y-Y-Y to short.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mommytwogirls Love these!
I wear a size 7 but purchased a 6. I also got the llbean wool socks and they wear well together. I am a busy mom of 2 and I wear these almost everyday. Super classic and preppy!

Rated 5 out of 5áby AET1 Wore them right out of the box...
I finally got tired of having wet feet all summer long from walking dogs and gardening, and ordered these shoes. I literally took them out of the box, and started wearing them, and have been wearing them 4 - 5 times per week ever since! They are a little wide, but fit perfectly with two pairs of running socks or one pair of winter weight socks. They are comfortable and water-proof! I would heartily recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gumshoeshopper I love them. They are a good fit.
I needed something to keep my feet dry while tending my goats in the early morning and in wet weather. They keep my feet dry, no leaking. They are very comfortable, even the first time I wore them

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nofish Great Boots
These gumshoes are great! I have narrow feet and tried on the regular gumshoes at the store, and even though those were comfortable, I decided to order the narrow width online. Glad I did as they fit well and even have a slight arch support. Also, there isn't that extra fullness of leather to bunch up when the laces are tied. Normally I wear an 8.5 shoe, but these do run longer, and the 8 narrow is perfect. Nothing like a comfortable fit when you're slogging around in wet conditions.

Rated 4 out of 5áby CWinOC Sizing still not spot on/customer service helped
I followed the directions for sizing to a tee ( I wear an 8.5 so I went to a 7 since I wear lightweight socks) and have regular width shoes. Shoes came and they were WAYYY too narrow. Length was marginally ok. I called customer service who recommended size 8 but not the wide. Because I told him I followed the sizing directions, they did not charge me for the return shipping and sent out the new size. They fit fine in length but still seem a little narrow. I am hoping they will stretch a bit after wearing. The other thing I hope gets resolved by wearing is that the tongue rubs the top of my foot where it flexes.

Rated 3 out of 5áby YvettesGirl Gumshoe Fit - Not For Arthritic Feet
I have ordered items from LL Bean in the past and have always been happy with my purchase. These gumshoes were shipped quickly and were just as advertised. I read the instructions on finding the right fit, and the shoe fit in length and width. However, I have arthritis in my feet and the large toe joints are swollen (not a bunion - these are on top of my feet). The rigid rubber top of the shoe pressed against this joint and made it painful to walk. I had to return them, regretfully. Otherwise, they were exactly what I was looking for.

Rated 1 out of 5áby pineal great shoes but way too large
I desperately need some gum shoes (NOT the boots), but these are too large. I can't believe that the 6 is really a 6. It's at least an inch too long in the toes. Unfortunately, the company says that it isn't planning to product a 5.5.
The quality and craftsmanship are excellent (as with all LL Bean products), but the shoes are simply too big.

Rated 5 out of 5áby littergitter Love these boots
I pick up roadside litter while getting my walking exercise and also work with groups cleaning up litter on our country roads. In the mornings, the grass is wet with dew so I was in need of a shoe that is comfortable and water proof.
I wear a size 9 New Balance walking shoe. After reading the reviews, I took the advice of others and ordered a size 8. With regular socks on, my foot set a little low in the shoe and it was a bit roomy so I put a Dr. Scholls shoe insert inside and it made the shoe fit perfectly.
I was eager to get on the road and give them a trial run. After 45 minutes of walking in wet grass, I was wet with sweat, my boots were also wet but my feet were dry. I love these boots and will get a lot of usage out of them and I expect them to last a long time.
