I have bought 2 pairs - one for each daughter. LL Bean is correct in saying order a size down. Both wear in rain and snow. Provide room for thick socks as needed and definitely waterproof. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NarNar Can't wait till Winter
I just ordered my boots (early Fall) and can't wait to wear them! I haven't had much time inbetween receiving the boots and LL Bean wanting me to review the product. So this is as much help as I can provide. I normally wear a size 8 and have a little bit wider foot. I ordered my boots in an 8 and medium. The boots are a little long, but I am not in fear of tripping. The medium is a little snug on my foot, but I still have room for light to medium socks and I should be fine. I hope this review helps for those trying to figure out sizes.

I LOVE these boots, a must have for the fall/winter! I live in Chicago and decided to go with the Gore-Tex/Thinsulate boots this year and am very happy with them. I went a half a size down and can still wear thick socks with them comfortably!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agirlneedsaname Super-comfortable boots!
Having just moved to New England from warm and sunny Australia, I was told the first thing I'd need were a pair of warm, water-proof boots. I ended up having to use them (already!) on a particularly rainy day, I walked for about two hours in them, and they are amazing! Comfortable straight away, waterproof yet breathable. Highly recommend them to anyone and can't wait to use these in winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carajean74 These are amazing.
How have I never owned a pair of these before? They're incredible. I can tell by the craftsmanship that they'll last for years. I actually gasped when I opened the box. I mean, I've heard they were good... but c'mon. Are you kidding me? These are the nicest boots I have ever put on my feet. I can't wait to slop around in them this winter.
I read reviews and watched the video on sizing. I usually wear a size 9 or 9.5 and have a wide foot. I didn't quite believe the thing about ordering a size down so I ordered a 9 and they fit perfectly with a pair of medium weight socks.

I spent a really long time researching winter boots. I mean, a REALLY long time. I finally decided on these and then waited, and waited until they became available. And then I ordered the wrong size and had to exchange them. I wear a 7.5 and originally ordered a 6 based on speaking with a customer service rep. The 6 fit SNUG, so I returned them for a 7. They fit perfect. Slightly longer in the toe than my other 7.5 shoes, but they fit just fine with or without my midweight wool socks.My only complaint with them, and this is probably purely due to my flat feet and is an issue with almost every shoe, but I wish there were just a little more padding in them. I am still very happy with the purchase & thank Diane for crafting such a beautiful shoe! And thanks to the great customer service for a QUICK and EASY exchange process.

I was totally impressed with the craftsmanship and fit of the Boot. I did not know that people still made shoes and boots by hand. I would buy from you again. Please thank Donna, at the Bean Boot Team, I am in your debt for the quality of boot you have hand crafted. I wish you the best. Keep making the best boots I have ever had.

Perfect as weather changes from wet & sloppy, to frozen, to salty slushy. I was tired of boots that leaked or weren't warm enough. These have it covered. So warm that my feet sweat a little when worn indoors, but they keep my feet warm when it's -10F outside. Great grip on the bottom for icy conditions. Totally waterproof & not affected by the sidewalk salt. I have worn them in up to 2inches of water with no leaks. I love that the tongue is entirely connected to the sides of the boot so snow won't leak in at the tongue. Also the lining is sewn in so there's not problem of it slipping out. The bottom insole is removable for washing. Nice looking enough that I can wear them in to work and not as bulky/clunky/noisy indoors as other winter boots. I consistently wear a 7M women's and got the 6W; they're not too big for wearing thin socks and certainly warm enough in 10F with thin socks; if I were going to be outside for hours in -10F I still have room to wear a thick sock and imagine my feet will be the last part of me to get cold. I can see these holding up well over the years & love that they can be resoled if the bottoms ever wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HayHelt Best boots I have ever bought!
I do not regret this purchase at all. These boots are the best boots I have ever bought. They fit snugly with wool, or thicker socks and keep my feet warm as I trudge through the colder part of the year. I ordered half a size smaller (I would typically wear an 8.5, but I got an 8) and they still fit correctly when I received them, which was something I was weary about. I would definitely recommend them!
