Rated 5 out of 5 by KansanGal Great boots after size issue
I faithfully read reviews and any comments made by the company before ordering because I try to order my correct size so I don't have to return an item. (I must say, however, LLBean makes returns extremely easy). I have always worn a 9 or 9 1/2 and I therefore ordered an 8 planning to wear a fairly lightweight sock. I found the shoe arch was very uncomfortable and not in the right place for my foot. I ordered a 9 and they were immediately comfortable everywhere including the arch. I have walked over 10 miles in them the past week and they are the best. Sorry to add confusion on the sizing issue but if ordering down doesn't feel quite right don't give up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by WorldTrek Tongue Sewn All The Way Up!
Well I hate to do this but this is kind of a big deal...
These shoes were dropped off about 30 minutes ago and I can't even get a foot in them with no socks on. Even after reading a lot of reviews I seem to have missed the few that mention the tongue is sewn all the way up. This apparently hasn't been an issue for most reviewers but unfortunately it is for me.
Sewing the tongue all the way up isn't really a bad design but if you don't mention the measurement for this opening in the product description then this becomes an issue for buyers who don't have a chance to measure themselves to determine if their feet will make it through this opening.
But since this measurement wasn't included, I now have to alter and possibly ruin a wonderful (and expensive) pair of shoes. I have to cut or de-stitch the tongue.
I am unable to return them and get another type of shoe because I'm headed to Ecuador soon and there's no time.
Wouldn't it be a disaster to make calf length boots and fail to include the calf circumference measurement? Same thing here...
Well at least they felt nice for the part of my foot I was able to get in there. Now if I can only get all of my foot in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 Super!!!! BEST BOOTS on the face of this EARTH!!!!
I now have my 4th pr. of LLB boots! I am comparing this pair to my 8" black ones........
I can't see a 2" difference between the both of them??? My black ones were Much SOFTER leather then these are. It will take some doing to break these in. The brown leather is MUCH stiffer then the black leather ones on that end of it! I got my reg. size 10 w/the black ones as I use them mostly in winter w/heavier socks. So I got this pr., the brown 6" ones, in a FULL SIZE SMALLER then my reg. size shoe. I normally wear a size 10.......so I got these in size 9. I wore them w/a reg. pair of NON heavy socks when I first got them out of the package. They fit FINE!!!! I can wear these for this weather that we're now having........sometimes a bit of snow, and MOST times muck yuck weather w/ALLOT of MUD!!!! I have the muck yuk LLB/s too which I wear around to the stores, walking the dog etc. I got those in size 9 too. So the size 9, a WHOLE size SMALLER then my reg. size shoes, is GREAT if you want these for reg. every day use NOT NEEDING to wear a heavy pr. of socks with!!!!
I did have a bit of a hard time getting my foot into these at first! I KNOW the Stiff leather on these WILL stretch w/time and breaking them in!!!!! When I got my black pr. this didn't happen....most likely b/c they ARE A WHOLE size BIGGER!!!! So for those who can't get their foot in these, as mine Nearly didn't do, this is probably the reason.....you get a WHOLE size down so it makes it harder to get your foot into them! BEWARE!!!! I was Determined to make it happen and did! As I've now worn these for NEARLY 2 days Straight on MANY kinds of surfaces, grass, SOLID concrete for OVER 7 hr., black top, etc. they ARE SUPER comfy!!!! The leather is getting less stiff! I've ALWAYS LOVED my other pairs of LLB boots! I LOVE these as well!!! I deal w/Chronic Nerve pain in my feet, and these do NOT HURT MY FEET AT ALL!!!!
Just give it time to break these in and I KNOW YOU WILL LOVE THEM as MUCH as I DO!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by StLouisBeanBooter best boots EVER
I'll make this short and sweet. I wear an 8.5 and have between a regular and wide foot. I ordered the 7 wide and they are absolutely perfect!! They have the perfect amount of arch support and did not make my feet hurt after wearing them for the first time for 10 hours. Just go ahead and order them already; you're welcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BMD123 fantastic boots
I've been wearing Bean Boots for about 40 years now. I bought the current pair about 15 years ago and they're still going strong. I ride horses and they are perfect for around the barn. I went on a 120 mile trail ride in Ireland a couple of years ago and wore them the whole way. It rained for at least a little while every single day. I think I was the only one in my group whose feet stayed dry they whole way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gretasmom Perfect boots!!'
I ordered these boots in November & they arrived earlier than anticipated, in January...since I have had them, I have worn them numerous times and I have never had a more comfortable pair of boots in my whole life. Unlike most footwear, these have a very generous foot box, perfect for extra socks. I normally wear a size 8 & that is what I ordered & still had plenty of room. I have highly recommended these to all my friends & family. They have been well worth the wait. It's so nice to see such quality & detail made in the US. Love them!!!'

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheriBC Just as Expected
I ordered these boots in September and received them in early November, just as they stated. I normally wear a size 6.5, but saw that they run big, so I ordered a size 6. They are perfect. They are just a bit big, but roomy in the toe box. I also put my own orthodiac in them, so it worked out perfect. I live in California, so we have no snow, but they work perfect for the rain and wet weather. My jeans fit nicely inside them as well. I am very happy with them, and I am sure they will last for many seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by erinlynn The BEAN!
I have been waiting to take the plunge on bean boots for a very very long time but they are always so back ordered. Finally bought them about 2 months ago and they just came in and I'm so happy! I ordered a half size up, as suggested, and they fit perfect. I can even wear super thick socks with them. They are a bit stiff so I know it will take a little breaking in for them to be super comfortable but they have the support that I need and want. Also, they claimed to be backordered to January when I ordered them in October but they came early (12/2) to my pleasant surprise!
