Rated 5 out of 5 by lighthousetraveler nice bad weather shoes
I had a cheap brand of duck shoes years ago and liked them but they didn't last. With this harsh winter I decided to get another pair. I looked at a lot of brands and reviews and settled on LL Bean. Even though it took me longer than expected to get them -- the demand was so high this year that they ran out of my size -- I really like them. My feet are narrow so I wondered if even the narrow width would run wide but the fit is great. And the thinsulate really works. Now if they're as long-lasting as the reviews indicate, I'll still be a happy camper in many years. The price was more than others but the quality is what I was after. So far I'm very satisfied.

I have been wanting a pair of the lowcut gumshoe type of shoe for some time and I knew LL Bean would have the best value and inventory plus customer service is outstanding..

I bought this shoe to replace an ancient pair of the moccasin version of it. The moccasin version never had good ankle support. This shoe fits great, is very well made and is more useful to me in general than the other shoe. Much better support and lateral stability. Fit is exactly right for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tundratough comfortable, warm, easier to put on than my shoes
At size 12 AAA, the order 11 narrow with thinsulate fits much better than expected. These boots are well-made, warm and very comfortable. My entire family of five will have Bean boots before year's end. For me they are easier to put on than my regular shoes and provide great waterproofing and traction on either ice or snow. Appreciate their having been made in America!

LLB's sizing recommendation was spot on (as usual). Although it had been several years since my last footwear purchase from LLB, I must admit I was skeptical at best when reading their recommendation to go so far down from my regular shoe size when ordering. But being a loyal fan of LLB's products, I put all my trust in their recommendation and after putting them on the day they arrived, I couldn't have gotten a better fit. My experiences with LLB has shown they are experts on their products.

The boots are well crafted and just like the pair we had 35 years ago. Excellent quality.
My order experience was exceptional. We really wanted these and the web site kept reflecting out of stock . I called customer service and the helpful woman I spoke with explained that demand is very high and that LL Bean would show out of stock after taking a number of back orders but to keep checking . It was only a couple of days before the size was available. I ordered with a ship date of April 19. To my surprise the boots actually shipped within 24 hours and I had them within 4 days of ordering. Wow... what a pleasant surprise. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by swimmom66 Great boot!
My husband needed a pair of good quality boots he could wear on most days(already has 10" bean boots.) He was skeptical of buying down a size-wears 10 wide normally, but these fit great! Provide enough support and traction too which was really important since he is recovering from achilles rupture and this winter is particularly snowy and icy. Another great product from Bean!

My very picky son actually likes these shoes. He says they are warm and comfortable. They definitely run large. I rounded down a half size but he says they are a bit big so he wears thick socks.

I am very pleased with the Gumshoe with Thinsulate. Although slightly long in the toe, it fits great in the heal and with, and with the regular shoe laces instead of the rawhide, it ties easily and fits snugly. This past Friday I was in another store wearing my Gumshoes with Thinsulate to use a gift card I had recieved. The store happened to be about 5 minutes from the L. L. Bean store in Hoffman Estates. A customer in the store came up to me and asked me where I got my shoes as he thought they would keep your feet dry and he wanted to know if they were warm and how I liked them. So, I spent about 10 minutes talking to him telling him that I was very happy with them and yes they kept my feet warm and dry (especially with the cold and snow we have had all Winter.) I told him that I got them from L.L. Bean and that he could get there by just going to Rt. 59 turning North getting in the right hand lane and going to the Arboretum, and turning into L.L. Bean. I did tell him that this particular shoe may not be available in the store, and it could be ordered on line, and that they could help him at the store. I told him about L.L. Bean's terrific return policy if the sizing was off. Off he went.

Your men's boots were excellent, it was just what my husband was looking for. Unfortunately we did return them - only because they were too long, width was fine. He will go to the store in Dedham and try on a smaller size for a better fit.
