These are great. Warm, comfy and waterproof. I have not had the problem that others mention about the wool lining coming up. Mine stays in. Maybe LL Bean has fixed that problem. I normally wear either an 8 or 8.5 because i have a kinda wide foot. I got the 8 and it fits perfectly. My only complaint is that boot gets kind of narrow at the very top around my calf and i sometimes have trouble zipping it all the way up to the top. Kind of weird because i don't think that i have exceptionally big calves, but not that big of a deal because the zipper still stays up. I would definitely get them again.

I bought a pair of the low cut, lace up boots in November and they served me well until we had a couple of really heavy snows. So after getting snow in the boots, I ordered this pair of the higher top version, but with the zipper.
They came in a few days. I wear size 8 1/2 shoes and so I ordered size 8 and they fit fine. A little tight at first but after the wool matted slightly, they fit fine.
Great quality and very practical for my Chicago commute.

I know LL Bean is a hunting shoe maker--but my new zip-front, wool-lined Bean boots are perfect for cold-weather motorcycle riding here in Oklahoma. They're light. They're comfortable. And worn with wool socks, my toes and feet don't get cold like they used to in leather boots. I've known about Bean boots most of my life and I'm still wondering why I waited so long to buy my first pair! Now I need to pick out a pair of Bean boots for warm-weather riding! What an awesome product.

I really like my shearling, 6 inch, zippered, Bean boots. So easy to slip on to get out to shovel the scads of snow we've had this winter. Easy on, easy off. I put some leather insoles in as I read many reviews complaining about the lining coming out when you remove the boots. Not a problem since I inserted some insoles...The heal could be a little tighter for me, but not a problem considering these are "mass produced" for a variety of feet sizes. Great Boots in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dtowns My new favorite winter boots
I love these boots. I use them for walking the dog, running errands and casual wear. The grip on ice and snow is superior and the fact that they're waterproof makes them very versatile. They are my go to boots for snow/ice/slush season.

I am very satisfied with the wool lined boots except for one very annoying defect.
Every time I remove the boots the wool lining comes out with my foot. I wear these boots multiple times every day and this defect is very frustrating. I have never owned other boots with liners that had this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogmommich comfortable, waterproof and great fit
This is my third pair in the last 24 years because I have my YakTrax on the second pair and it is a hassle to put the YakTrax off and on, so I got a third pair for non-icy conditions. This time I got a medium. Pair 2 is a narrow. When the liner packed down some, the narrow fit great, but the medium width is perfect right out of the box. The first pair was wonderful for over 23 years, and has now been retired to my car trunk for emergencies. My only comment is that the wool liner starts out really full and compresses, so allow for that. I have been a Bean customer since I was a kid and talked to LL himself while both of us sat on the stairs to the second floor and my parents shopped. Bean boots are still as good as they were then.

I have been debating for a couple of years whether or not to get one of the Bean lined boots. I finally took the plunge and ordered the 10' shearling lined boots in a women's 9, based on Bean's recommendation, and not other reviewers who said they ran large. They indeed were huge and I ordered the 8 which arrived and fit perfectly but had some flaws. I called Bean and they immediately sent me a replacement for the 8, no charge, with free shipping on the return. I decided to return the size 9 to the store because I would have been charged shipping for that pair. Once at the store, I decided to try on all of the other options that I had ignored in the catalog because I simply wanted the pair rated for the lowest temperatures. This is when I discovered the zip-front wool lined boot. While not as "cool" looking as the tie up boots, it seemed much more practical for wearing around town on a daily basis during a Chicago winter. One week in and they have been fantastic. Single digit days, driving, dog walking, snow and my toes have been toasty with wool socks. The lining does pop out sometimes, but it goes right back into place. I am a women's 9 and ended up going with a men's 7. They are slightly higher in the ankle which I liked and a bit wider.

I have not had the opportunity to wear the Boots yet.
because of good weather.
But I like the look, style and above all the fit.
They are comfortable and firm and appears to be warm.
