Rated 5 out of 5 by QualityIsForever Is there anyone better than LLBean?
I previously purchased these boots in a size that was not a proper fit for me. I put off returning them longer than I should have. But, true to their promise, the good folks at LLBean made the exchange seamless and without problem even with my delay, no receipt, etc. My new boots arrived sooner than expected with a full credit for the return of the old ones.
Even if I could buy these type boots somewhere else, I would not even consider it. They are of excellent quality. They stand up to virtually any condition and they last forever. For me, the fact that they're made in the US is also very important. But beyond all that, LLBean stands behind them and their word.
There are many companies that talk customer service. But very few, if any, that live up to their promises like LLBean. I'm proud to call myself a loyal customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristianT so comfortable! great fit!
So from growing up in Aroostook, County ME, these boots were vital, especially when hunting out in the woods. everyone in my family has got a pair! When we moved to ohio I decided I'd get a pair with the thinsulate but i saw they were backordered until june 28th, so what i did was i called up the freeport store and ordered a pair over the phone, only took 3 days too get to me out in Ohio! I normally wear a 10.5 but I was instructed to wear a 10, and it was a fantastic option, i've got enough room it seems so just in case i need to wear a pair of heavy thick wool socks there will be enough space but it's not too much space! I would suggest, at least for the thinsulate, if you wear a half size order a a half size down (10.5--> 10) and unless your feet are VERY wide keep it at the normal width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MtManDan New warm boots
My old unisulated Bean boots were 30 plus years old, I wore them on average three months out of the year and four days a week and had them repaired twice, now that's great service!
The new boots are insulated and the advise on size was spot on. I wear 10 1/2 in other boots and was advised to purchase size 10 wide they fit awesome and I have been wearing them 7 days a week they are so comfortable!
When I ordered the boots the first of January they were on back order until the end of Febuary they showed up the first week in March and it was worth the wait. I can't wait until I can save to order the slippers!
Maine Hunting Shoes are the best!

Boots fit like a glove. They are light, comfortable and could wear them for extended periods of time. Most comfortable boots that I have and I have at least 20 pr. of boots.

These are the first pair of Bean Boots I have owned. What a pleasure they were during the winter months; warm, waterproof (mine were Gore-Tex), and comfortable. The only drawback I can list (and it might have been unique to my particular pair) was the sensation of my socks bunching up near the heel, as if they had migrated down. I found it to be a function of the lining, and it gradually disappeared. I wore these daily, and as strange as it sounds, I'm going to miss wearing them since Spring has arrived. Needless to say, when we reach the winter season this year, I'll be quickly reaching for these boots. Should have bought these years ago. A note on the fit: I ordered these per Bean's recommendations, and they were too narrow. I believe it was because mine had the Thinsulate insulation which took up extra space. Sent the first pair back and exchanged them for a wide width. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rally119 WONDERFUL BOOTS!!
I have had these types of boots before but never from LL Bean. I read where these run large and they do. I wear 11.5 to 12 normally but size 10 Bean boots fit me perfectly. Very well made very comfortable. Without doubt a boot in a class by itself. No other comes close.

This are good looking boots, but the sizing guidelines didn't work for my husband. He wears an 8 1/2 or 9 in shoes and had to return them for a 9 instead of going with the recommended size 8. Looking forward to getting the bigger ones before next winter........

Rated 5 out of 5 by TokenVermonter My Favorite Boot
I purchased these in "Dark Ash" in November 2014 and waited for the worst of winter to be over before giving them a rating, and honestly I've been blown away. The boot looks fantastic (I like that it isn't the typical bean boot color) and fits perfectly with a good pair of wool socks. They will keep your feet warm well below zero for an hour or two and dry unless water comes over the top of the boot.
I have worn mine daily since the day I purchased them and I couldn't be happier!
However, if you are looking for a boot to spend extended periods of time in very cold (below zero) temperatures, I would recommend a different Bean boot (the shearling lined hunting shoe is fantastic).
I would recommend that you also pick up a thing of Beans Boot Wax ($8) and use it every month or so to keep them looking good and help keep water out.
As a native back-woods Vermonter, these boots get my official stamp of approval!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrenleighsGrandDad Surprisingly comfortable
I have been looking at these boots for way to long and finally bought a pair when I was in Maine last year. I bought a size smaller than the boot I normally wear as suggested, The boots are well insulated and very comfortable. I first put them on with intentions of taking them off after I did some outside chores in the snow. When I came back inside I just wore them the rest of the day they felt so good. If you want a high quality comfortable boot you can't go wrong with these. I should have bought these a long time ago.
