Rated 5 out of 5 by CRABBYLADY Love them!
Got my boots just before the big Hurricane. Glad I had them, my feet stayed toasty and dry all day. Fit was as expected, I ordered a 1/2 size larger than my normal to be sure to fit in heavy wooly socks for winter weather. Im very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tcmi12 FANTASTIC boots!
Last year I moved to Michigan, and put a lot of thought ahead of time into the winter boots that I would buy. The first pair of L.L. Bean boots I tried weren't quite what I was looking for, and doing the return by mail could not have been easier. Thank you for such customer-friendly service! I next bought a pair of the blue 8" Bean boots with Thinsulate, following the sizing guidelines, but when they arrived they were way too tight. After a conversation with a lovely and very helpful customer service rep on the phone, who was able to scrounge me up a bigger pair despite all of the "backordered" listings, I received my boots. I normally wear a size 8 shoe, and the size 8 boots fit perfectly.
I absolutely adore these boots. They are extremely comfortable and well-padded, and as such are easy to spend all day in. I have used them for everything from hiking in the woods to going to work to walking all around town. They are nice and toasty, even in sub-zero conditions; I shoveled out of several blizzards this winter and never even needed to add an extra pair of warm socks. I have found them to be completely waterproof thus far, and are nice and light for walking - a nice change after several pairs of clunky, heavy boots. I also got lots of compliments on the attractive style and pretty blue color.
I could not be happier with these boots! The only thing I would advise is to order early in the season - it might take a couple of tries to get the sizing right, and you don't want to be stressed out by backordered products and wonder if you're going to get them before spring. When you do get them in the right size, you'll love them!

Finally was able to order and get boots before the winter. I have worn them around the house to break them in,but can't wait to wear them in the snow. I am very happy with the quality of these boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 Wrong fit
Love the look but did not fit like I would have liked, so I had to return mine, unfortunately. I should have probably ordered the narrow size but hate to have to wait another month or longer to get them here to me.

I have never had a pair of boots like this. I love the smell of the leather and they are beautifully made. I was surprised how comfortable they were. Definitely a must purchase for nasty winters but nice enough to wear just for rainy weather. I'm very happy with them and can't say enough about how well they're made. I wear 8 1/2 wide and I ordered 8 wide and they fit perfect!

I absolutely love these boots, this was my first time buying them and they fit like a glove! the description for what size you should get is very accurate! They came extremely quickly and I was very happy with my purchase. I will continue to buy these boots and I have already told all my friends and family to buy theirs. GREAT PURCHASE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Benson92 Beware of sizing recs, consider sock thickness
I ordered these boots a size below what I normally wear and in a narrow fit since my feet are narrow. I happened to be nearby a store this weekend so I went in to try on some boots to get a feel for if I ordered the right size. The sales clerk] told me"You can't follow the guidelines online".... lol. They did not have narrow widths available in that store, but I did try on both a 7 (what I ordered) and an 8 (what I normally wear) in the medium width with two different sock thicknesses. I ended up liking the 7s better because I will be mostly wearing them with medium-thick socks. However, the 8s were a great fit with thick socks. I thought others might want to know this information!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hamphoops Sizing WAY OFF
I ordered these for my daughter in her regular size women's 9. The boots arrived and were more like a men's size 9. VERY VERY BIG!
The boot even says on it F/M, indicating that it is sized for BOTH women and men. The site does NOT say this. Disappointed. Now the hassle of return, reorder and waiting for a new pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snow08 Comfortable, waterproof and great fit!!
These boots were made by Linda at L.L.Bean and she did a fantastic job. I think it is so unique to know who made you boots and that were made right here in the USA! What a great product and I am so excited about them.
On the size to order...I ordered a size 7 in the thinsulate boots, and this is the size that I usually wear. They fit perfectly and I am so glad that I didn't go down a size. The thinsulate really make a difference as far as space in the shoe is concerned. They fit great with a heavier sock and with the cute crew socks that are everywhere right now!
Wonderful product and I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mh05 Wore them every single day all winter
I wore these every single day during the boston winter of 2015 (over 100 inches of snow). As a student these were wonderful in keeping my feet warm and allowing me to get around campus in a city that isn't fabulous at intial plowing/snow removal. They can get a little hot if you wear really thick socks but when it's 5 degrees out, that's what you want. I lived in these from January through mid April and plan on doing the same this next winter. Also, they have great traction too! The sidewalks are very slippery and I had no problem with these. Puddles are HUGE on the sidewalks when crossing streets and while others had to dodge the puddles that went up to your ankles, I was able to confidently splash my way through!
Sizing: I wear a 9 sneaker and an 8-8.5 in most other shoes. I got an 8 in these and they are great.
