Rated 5 out of 5 by CallMeB Toasty feet, beautiful craftsmanship
This is the first winter that I finally decided to get REAL winter boots. Chicago winters are right up there with the worst of them and having frozen feet every time I stepped outside just wasn't ideal. It took me a long time to choose a shoe but I finally settled with the famous Bean Boot. Decided to get the thinsulate version because my toes usually freeze within minutes of being outside. I figured any little bit would help. Bottom line, I am so impressed. These boots are beautiful, I may have gasped when I opened the box. The craftsmanship and the fact that they are made right here in the US are definitely bonuses. I wear a size 7 and have skinny feet. Got the 6 medium and they fit perfect with or without heavy socks. Plus, they arrived over a week earlier than expected. Wore them out for the first time today and my feet remained warm, even while standing in the cold, waiting for a train. I truly feel like I have spoiled my feet with these boots and I know that due to the quality, they'll last for years. They really are worth every dime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanboot1 Bean boot 8 with thinsulate
Worth the wait! Warm and comfortable. I normally wear a 10.5 but ordered a 9 per the instructions. My boots were too small, I reordered a 10 and they fit perfect.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
