Rated 5 out of 5 by JMR24 Exactly what I wanted
I exchanged an unlined pair I had for these and am so happy I did. These boots are perfect for the day or late night winter walks, in the rain, in the snow, in the mud...whatever it is, these can handle it and will keep your feet warm and dry. I treated mine with Snowproof Weatherproof wax and even after getting dirt, snow, and water on them they still look brand new! I was able to comfortably walk for about six miles in several inches of snow and my feet were perfectly warm.
The only unusual thing about them for me is that I'm usually a women's size 6 and I've always heard to size down since these can run large. However, I got these in a women's size 6 and since I wear thick socks, they fit true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TrendyShopper22 Amazing Shoes Weird Size
A friend of mine got me these shoes without me even trying them one. I got a 7 wide!. Normally I am a 8, 8.5 and not usually wide. These fit perfect with or without a large sock. I am so excited to finally have a pair. My advice to anyone else buying is go down a size and maybe wide, the regular or normal probably wouldn't fit my foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AndieNYC great boots!
This is my second pair of bean boots. The very first one I bought was a little cheaper because it didn't have the insulate or gore tex in it. I bought the second pair with the insulate and my feet actually felt warmer and less prone to dampness when it's raining hard like what we've been getting lately here in NYC. I was torn between getting the one I did which was way more expensive ($189 + tax) and the navy boot which I think is the most stylish out of all the selection. In the end, I still love it because of the extra insulation plus these boots are back ordered! I got a letter from the mail that it was gonna be pushed back till January before it was gonna be shipped but I was surprised that it was shipped on the original date promised and was on my doorstep on the first week of December just as I hoped! I was just excited to get it before Christmas. If there was any negative thing about it is its price. but very stylish and high quality. Will probably get the navy boot next!

I'd wanted a pair of Bean boots for YEARS - since I was in college. I finally got tired of wet, cold feet (thank you, Portland) and decided to go for it.
I wasn't sure if I should order the regular, noninsulated boots or this version with GoreTex and Thinsulate, which is considerably more expensive. Eventually I decided to buy the pair I really wanted, with the expectation that they'll last for years. As soon as the box arrived, I put my new boots on and walked to the grocery store in a heavy rain. My feet stayed toasty and dry. I've walked 2.5 miles to and from work in below-freezing temps and my toes had no complaints.
I have extremely long, narrow, ski-like feet and it's hard for me to find shoes that fit. I normally wear an 11 AA and ordered a 10 AA in these. THANK YOU, LL Bean, for making boots in a narrow width! It's incredibly difficult to find footwear that works for looooong, skinny feet. Even in a narrow width, the boots slip a bit in the heel, which I expected, but lengthwise they are just fine - long enough without being clunky.
The leather is a little stiff at first but is breaking in nicely. Overall, I'd say that you shouldn't wait as long as I did to take the plunge and get some Bean boots.

I love these boots! They fit perfect no matter what I wear for socks, even with thick wool socks or 2 pairs of socks! I live in Northern New York and I like to go deer hunting - sometimes its about 10 degrees sitting out in the woods but these boots keep my feet nice and warm! Also, I'm currently in college and it's pretty wet and snowy up here but these boots totally protect my feet from all the elements. Never have cold or wet feet - even walking through puddles in below freezing temps! They are very comfortable and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants quality, waterproof, warm boots. At first I thought they were pretty expensive, but they are worth the cost. Best boots I've ever purchased!

I'm so glad I ordered these boots back in October.
Something I think super important to note about fit with these - the lining makes them fit true to width, in my opinion. They're also so comfy!
Usually boots like this make my feet sweat, and then they end up getting cold in the boot anyways. And I'm extremely happy to say that these don't do that! The first time I wore them was driving north for Thanksgiving - I was in the car for 6 hours and my feet were just toasty warm the whole way. Once at home, I wore them trudging around in the country over the holiday in nasty, wet weather and my feet stayed totally warm and dry! These are the best boots I've ever had.
Another thing - when I originally ordered my boots, they were back ordered until Dec. 4. But, I received them well before then in mid-November! So that was a pleasant surprise.

This is my second pair of bean boots. I bought the gore-tex this time and could not be happier. My feet are very warm. Best boots for rain or snow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJSnow Best Winter/Snow/Rain Boots Ever!
These Bean boots are the best investment you will ever make if you live in a snowy or wet and rainy climate. I am a size 7.5 and bought a 7, and they fit perfectly. I think that if you are going to invest in Bean boots, then you might as well splurge on the Gortex because they go the extra mile in keeping your feet dry and toasty.
I fell in love with LLBean after going to college in Maine and now that I'm back home in Colorado, LLBean is still living up to its name. My first pair of Bean boots started leaking and LLBean promptly replaced the boots no questions asked. LLBean produces quality American-made products with an unbeatable guarantee and these duck boots are no exception. I will be a loyal LLBean customer for life!

Love these boots! Kept borrowing my roommates last year and finally bought my own. They are so warm and keep my feet dry, especially walking across campus! They are a little expensive but they are durable and will last a long time and are worth every penny.
They are also very true to size!
Although I can wait to see the snow, at least I know I will be prepared!

Exactly what I wanted. Super warm, cozy, comfortable for walking longer distances in not-so-great weather. Highly recommend! Also, I'm normally a size 9.5/10 and got the 9. They fit perfectly even with slightly heavier socks.
