Rated 4 out of 5 by Fiddler05 Returned for Bigger Size
I'd had my eye on these boots forever and when I finally placed my order I listened to the suggestions and ordered a size down. (Normally a 9, ordered a size 8) When they came in the mail I knew as soon as I opened the box that they were too small. Maybe the unlined versions would have fit but the Thinsulate made the boot too snug on my foot. Fantastic boots in almost every way, I would just suggest ordering your normal size.

I've owned these boots for years and years. I've actually lost count. They are the best winter boots I think I've ever owned in terms of warmth, waterproofing and durability. ( I have purchased other boots and keep going back to these.) I am out in all kinds of weather in the Northeast and put these things to the test and they keep my feet warm and dry. Despite all the hard wear they've seen, they don't look old or beat up.They have worn well, that's for sure. When I went onto the LL Bean website today, it occurred to me that I should probably write a review because the boots deserve the recognition.

The boots I ordered were delivered quickly. Great quality. I can't wait till winter gets here to wear them. I wear a size 10 but I ordered a 9 and they fit perfect. So I suggest to order a size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ErinB13 Great, functional shoes
I bought these shoes for winter wear when I moved up to MA. I went through a really snowy winter and a lighter winter with them and they haven't leaked once. And they still look like I've never worn them. I ordered my normal shoe size, though, and they are very big. I make do by adding thicker socks, but I'd recommend ordering smaller or trying them on in-person to determine your best fit. That's my biggest regret about them and I wished I'd ordered smaller.

is it terrible to say I can't wait for a rainy day to wear them? Great LL Bean quality and love the blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bmd423 Love these boots! Sizing is tricky though
These boots are wonderful! Sturdy, comfortable, cute. I wanted to provide my opinion on sizing, however, for those who are having trouble deciding which size to order. I am size 8 1/2 normal, in pretty much every shoe. I ordered this boot first in an 8, and they were WAY too big (especially length-wise), even with thick socks. So I exchanged them for a 7, which were the right length but too narrow. Exchanged again for 7 wide, which fit perfectly! I would recommend ordering a 7 wide if you are normally an 8 1/2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNwinternative So Satisfied!!
I originally bought the Gore-tex and Thinsulate and they were too warm. Which sounds crazy, especially for MN winters. So I returned them nearly 8 months later after being worn all winter and they accepted them with a full refund. One of the many reasons I love L.L. Bean. I ordered these and am completely satisfied. If you are a human furnace like me, these are perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by outdoorllbeanboots comfortable, lovely color
Reordered the boots 3 times. Sizing is awkward. I normally wear a 7 1/2, have a narrow heel but high instep. The 7's,with fur lining, swam on me even with what I considered thick socks. Next I tried 6's, without fur, but they were too snug, and a major struggle to get on with my instep. I finally settled for the 7's, no fur, and will just wear multiple pairs of socks. Although the chart and info mention "thick/thin" socks, it's to ambiguous to determine. What I considered thick socks didn't do a thing. I love the boots, but wish the sizing was better, especially since I had to pay for returns.

My daughter is going off to college in NH - and bought these as a winter boot to wear. Her parents have owned pairs for decades!
