Rated 5 out of 5 by katie1234567 LOVE these!
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinInWinter Great performers!
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smellen Awesome Boots!
I currently live in Western Washington and it rains a lot (like 75%-ish of the year!) and can get to below freezing temps occasionally in the winter. I wanted some boots that would be warm and waterproof, good for beach camping year-round and awesome quality and I immediately thought of the L.L. Bean boots! I stalked the website for a week or so until these became available in my size! I talked with multiple customer service reps as well asking about availability and sizing, and they were all so helpful!
I definitely recommend these boots! You get what you pay for - the quality is definitely worth the price. I also have a special place in my heart for Maine, and I love that these are still made in Maine!
Thank you, L.L. Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 88lmary Wide not that wide
These are very nice looking, well-made boots but be careful with these if you have a wider foot. My feet are wide at the bridge of my toes and the wide (D) width was not wide enough to be comfortable (and with the rubber construction there's no breaking these ones in!). I returned and exchanged for the goretex cresta hikers and got a much better fit with the wides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitinphilly In the nick of time
I had to return a pair of Bean Boots that had broken, but it was the middle of the winter and I knew that I would have to wait for my new pair to come in. I ordered this new pair with the expectation that they would be back ordered until March. Then, in the middle of a snow storm, 2 weeks later the boots showed up at my office. Not only are these boots warm and waterproof, the tongue on the boot is attached to the sides, preventing snow from getting in around the laces. I ordered a "narrow" fit, thinking that it might be a bit snug, but it fits the same as a normal cut. If I could give six stars for these shoes, I would.

Love ,love, love these boots. They are pure perfection. Before my purchase I read a review that said to order a 1/2 size down, so I did and the fit is great. I ordered online & they were delivered asap. Great service. Great company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren1234 In love!
I was looking for a pair of winter boots that would fit the bill of being warm, waterproof, and stylish. These boots certainly meet all 3 criteria. I was lucky to snag a pair of these when they were available for a few minutes and then went out of stock again. I am so glad that I did! Ususally my feet are freezing, so I also ordered the shearling insoles, which were on backorder. I got the boots first, and in the past few weeks of sub-zero temperatures, my feet have stayed toasty warm in my Bean Boots and a pair of Smartwool socks. So, I cancelled the shearling insoles. I have walked my dog in these through gross mud puddles and snow and they have stayed perfectly dry. The only slightly annoying thing is when I take my feet out, the liner kind of comes out, but not completely, and can certainly be slid right back in very easily. Also for sizing, I generally wear a 9/9.5 and can sometimes need a wide width. The size 8 is perfect and they are just SO comfortable. I did try an 8 wide, but they were a little too sloppy. I would definitely recommend paying the extra for the Gore-Tex+Thinsulate. I will wear these forever. Thank you LL Bean!
