Rated 3 out of 5 by foxhillgirl Ignore fit specs
I ordered these boots according to LL Bean's specs and they were too snug. I wear a 7-7 1/2 and ordered a 7. There is no way I could wear these with anything but thin socks and the fit was still on the snug side. According to the way these fit, I would have ordered up instead of down. After waiting months for these, I don't even want an exchange. Either they are making them truer to size this year or they should reevaluate their size recommendations. These fit like a 7 shoe. I wear a 7 1/2 in an Asics Gel Kayano running shoe and a 7 in a whole size shoe or sandal, so if I had not gone with their recommendations on how roomy this boot would be, I would have ordered a larger size to begin with knowing I would have a warm sock on with these. Returning immediately and hoping I am not charged for the return fee.

They're worth the wait!!!!! My boots arrived last week and in spite of 80 degree temperatures, I immediately put them on and wore them around the house. They look GREAT!!! Can't wait for Winter 2016!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeansQueen Love these boots
I have other boots I wear in Snow, rain and mud, but nothing compares to the comfort, and super arch support these boots have. I not only wear them in weather, but wear them with my leggings when just walking around town. These boots will last a life time. I Love Them. Thanks LL Bean for making a ONE OF THE KIND.

I ordered Bean Boots for my daughter before Christmas - it was a gift. When they turned out to be too big - I sent them back for a smaller size. Just received them, it's May. Kinda late for a Christmas gift...

Thank you L.L.Bean for making such a wonderful product. I live in the tundra that is Chicago and needed a reliable snow/outdoor boot that would help me get from place A to B. I purchased these while on a trip to Maine in the Freeport store. I am SO glad I got the boots with Thinsulate- what a difference it makes! Both my parents have been boots that are over 20 years old and still work amazing- but both commented they wished theirs were lined as mine are. I wear these with medium wool socks and my feet are happy all day.
These are comfortable. I prefer the 8" to the 6" because it keeps the snow out- but really this is a personal preference.
Great construction. I am normally a 9.5 and I sized up- I don't like my boots to be tight at all. I will have these forever. Thank you L.L.Bean, I can always count on you.

Waited months for these boots. Well, the tongue is sewn onto the boot so there is a little hole into which you are expected to fit your feet. How lame is that? Boots returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonMolly Run large but oh-so-cute
I was one of the [un]lucky souls to have to wait more than three months for my Bean Boots; however, it was worth the wait! I LOVE my boots and find myself wishing for cool, wet spring days so I can wear them around town.
As I was unsure of the sizing (I normally wear a 9 1/2 in flats or a 10 in sneakers), I ordered both a 9 and a 10. I'm sure glad I did because the 10 was ginormous! Even the 9 is a tiny bit large length-wise but a pair of wool socks makes for a better fit. They're a touch on the narrow side, too, but I'd read previous reviews that the wide boots are very wide so I stayed away from those.
Thanks, L.L.Bean, for keeping such an iconic product handmade and local! I'm proud to support your business!
