Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanBootsForever Amazing winter boots!
I have been putting off purchasing Bean Boots for no good reason, and I got lucky with the solid blue style. Although the fit is a bit large/wide, I ordered 1.5 sizes down (true 7.5 medium width, had to buy 6s in medium width) and they are a little roomy in the inside, but nothing a thick sock can't fix. I really can tell the difference with the Thinsulate insole - my feet are toasty in the cold! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alabamacab Great Boots!
I purchased this for my 18 year old daughter in college. She wanted water proof boots to wear when walking from dorm to classes in a mountainous area in East Tennessee. Great fit! Got one size smaller than normal. These boots were worth waiting for. Perfect for rain and snow. Very popular now with the college crowd.
As soon as my daughters came in, my husband, age 52, had me order him a pair. He didn't even care that it would be 3 months before we received them.
I think these shoes will last forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shop521 Well worth the wait!
My daughter was thrilled when she recieved her backordered Bean boots! She's worn them several times already & they appear to be very well made. I tried them on and they're actually very comfortable. I'm pleased with my purchase & most of all the customer service that LL Bean provides. They sent a small Bean Boot keychain & a note to apologize for the wait several weeks before our boots were shipped. We loved that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTLovesLLBean These Are the Best
Accept no imitations! I've had these boots for quite a few years and they've broken in nicely. I wear a narrow width in shoes and am ever so grateful for the narrow width availability in Bean's signature boot. I can thank my ex-husband for introducing me to LL Bean and these boots almost 40 years ago. I volunteer, in an aquarium working outdoors with marine life, in very cold New England weather and if my feet are cold (and they tend to get cold fast), I actually start to feel nauseous. With a light-weight pair of wool socks and these boots, I'm good to go for over 9 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tennmam Everything is just perfect
Thank you LLBean for coming through once again for an excellent experience with the 2014 bean boot order. I ordered in early November, with an early January backorder date. I was hoping they would arrive in time for Christmas, and they did! The fit was perfect, the gift receipient was thrilled as she was headed back to cold and wet weather on campus. Pass along my appreciation to the team in your manufacturing division for making one young fashionably conscious college student happy.

I was very lucky to go on the website on Saturday and find a pair of navy blue thinsulate bean boots in a size 8. I scooped them up immediately and couldn't wait for them to arrive! I was nervous because I wear a size 8 and sometimes an 8-1/2. So I wasn't sure what to expect! I got them today and couldn't be happier...they are as comfortable as Uggs! Seriously! The size is perfect as well. I'm sure that these were returned and think that the person who returned them tried breaking them in. All I can say is, thank you! A size smaller would've been too short and a wide too wide. They are comfortable and amazing...I hope this helps those of you with sizing questions. Also, note that I am wearing just a thin sock with these today. But, there's sufficient room if I was to wear a heavy sock! Good luck and I hope you get your bean boots quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ari29 Waterproof, comfortable and warm!
I recently took a trip up to Quebec City. With zero degree weather, snow and ice I had planned on wearing my snow boots while walking around the city exploring. But I ended up wearing these LL Bean boots and could not be happier. The grip on the bottom allowed me to not slip on ice, and even after walking around for 5 hours my feet weren't cold or wet. I didn't get any blisters and was able to walk up snowy mountains without getting any snow in the top of the boots. I would highly recommend these boots, even for extreme cold.

I ordered L.L.Bean Boots, 8" Thinsulate for an upcoming trip for my daughter. The boots were not suppose to be received until January 8th. The boots came in early, 12/23 and just in time for Christmas and her trip. They are well made and fit perfectly. I was most impressed with the updates that were sent via email as well as my ability to track the progress and the shipping on line. I especially loved the boot keychain that was sent incase the boots were not received by Christmas. I will definitely order again from L.L. Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wisconsin09 Great boots, some sizing issues
I originally ordered the 8" Goretex version of these boots in a 7B (I normally wear a 7 1/2 or 8 in boots, normal width), and when I received them they were extremely tight in the toe box and made my toes go numb really quickly. I have never had to order wide shoes ever in my life, so I was rather disappointed that they were so tight. The length was perfect, though. I tried them on with both thick and thin socks, but eventually decided to send them back and order the 7 wide (D) and forego the Goretex (I live in WI, but I just didn't think the Goretex was worth the extra $50 bucks). When I chatted with their customer service representative on the phone, she was extremely nice and helpful.
After waiting a few more months (and receiving an adorable mini boot keychain as a "thank you for being patient") I got my Thinsulate 7D pair in the mail. The lining of the Goretex and the Thinsulate pairs are quite different. The Goretex version has a red, quilted liner that is sewed into the entire interior of the boot, including the leather upper. The Thinsulate liner is only in the rubber bottom portion of the boot. I will be keeping the second pair, although the fit is still not as perfect as I had hoped. Since they are the wide version, they are wider in the heel area as well, and thus my heel slips around a bit. The toe box is perfect for me, though. I am going to stick with what I have though, because I don't want to wait for another pair.
Overall these are a beautifully made boot, the customer service I have experienced was really great, and ultimately I am fine with the fit. I'd say if you are unsure on sizing, order two at once to try them both out, and you can easily send one back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ABeanbootsbesty Surprised with early arrival in time for Christmas
There was nothing that my college aged daughter wanted more than a pair of bean duck boots for Christmas. I had to tell her that they were back ordered and would not be here until mid-January, so she decided to ask for a different brand. I was pleasantly surprised when the boots arrived on December 21st. What fun to see the smile she had when she opened them! Thanks to all those who worked long hours to fill the orders!
We ordered a 7 narrow with thinsulate. They fit perfectly. My daughter usually wears a 7.5 or 8 and has a thin foot.
