Rated 3 out of 5áby HudsonValleyCustomer 6" Women's L.L.Bean Boot Review
I had been looking to replace boots of a similar style and promptly ordered these when I saw them online.
As per the "Fit Tip", I ordered down from my usual 8 1/2 - 9 size and crossed my fingers that the size 8 I ordered would fit. Boots arrived and when I tried them on, was pleased to note that the 8 seemed adequate, even allowing a little "wiggle" room by the toes. Wore them around the house and out to collect the mail, walk dog. As time went by, discovered the material was so stiff, it began rubbing against my ankles. I switched to heavier socks, thinking that would solve issue. No such luck.
So will be sending these back, they are just too stiff and I really don't see them "unstiffening" over time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Alex721 excellent boots, very durable
I decided to write a review about these because I received them as a gift in high school--at least 15 years ago now. Granted, they don't get worn every day, but they have survived 15 winters (about half of those in New England, so lots of snow and ice!). My pair runs a little big, but I assume the idea is you'll be wearing them with thick socks, which is exactly what I do. I only wish they came up a little higher because snow still sometimes finds its way in, no matter how tight I lace them up. For that reason, I just went and bought myself a pair of LL Bean tall wellies :)

I had been thinking about these boots for ages and finally bought a pair. They are as lovely as I remembered from when I had some years and years ago. Well-made, classic style, perfect for rainy, snowy weather. Follow size guidelines as they run large.
I had some shipping issues because of my strange address and everyone I dealt with at L.L. Bean Customer Service was extremely helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my order.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Sebh Cute, snug, comfy
I bought a size 8 6-inch based on the sizing guide. I'm really a 9-9.5. The boots are very snug. I wore them with a thin running sock on their first outing and walked a couple hours in them. No blisters. Comfy. Think a 9 would have been too big and required thick socks. I also own the Sperry Saltwater boot which fits perfect in a 9.5. I'd say the size 8 Bean is between the Sperry 9-9.5 just to give a basis of size comparison. Bean boot def better constructed. Don't regret this purchase at all. Would have given 5 stars if they came in half sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Kelssslove love these boots!
I was extremely worried ordering a 7! I am between an 8 and an 8.5 medium. The 7 medium fit perfect and I can wear regular socks and it fits very comfortably. I'm so excited to wear these out and about!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Selena4129 Very happy!
I absolutely LOVE my Bean boots! I'm a first time purchaser and I couldn't be more pleased. I ordered the 6" because of my small/short frame. They look great. I was told my boots were on back order and I received them 2 weeks ahead of the scheduled date. If you're thinking about getting these, I definitely recommend!

áby ShopperFromKS My go-to boots!
I have had my eye on these boots for several years now, but they were always sold out by the time I got around to buying them. This year I purchased them early to insure I could have them for the cold months. That being said, my boots were still back ordered when I purchased them in early October. However, I received my boots a whole week before they were supposed to even ship! So, if you're considering buying a pair that are back ordered, they *MAY* come to you early! These boots are very well made, comfortable, and stylish! My only issue with breaking them in was that the hard leather rubbed uncomfortably against my ankle for the first few wears, but now they feel just perfect! As for size, I typically wear an 8.5-9, so I went with the 8 AA and they fit comfortably with any type of sock. I'm very impressed with my purchase and can't wait to enjoy these boots for many years to come.

I have been waiting a long time to buy these boots. I had tried some snow boots that were higher and they seemed so awkward and bulky. These 6" boots fit like I have had them for years! Very comfortable with no chafing around the ankles! I do suggest you follow the sizing guideline when ordering!! I usually wear a size 10 mostly because I have wide feet so I ordered the size 9 wide! Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Ncladyfisher7 Great pair of boots
The boots are extremely comfortable. I'm normally a 7.5 and ordered a 7 and they fit great (and will still fit with thick socks). My feet are really narrow so I'm glad that was an option. I love the way they look and feel, can't wait for winter weather!

I love, love, love my new boots! They are so cute and comfortable. Just remember to watch the size video before you order - I usually wear a size 9 and ordered a size 8, and they are still very roomy.
