Rated 3 out of 5 by ebarr leather gusset on inside heel came unglued
Got these late last winter for Toronto's worst weather in years. They were great - too big, but ok with thick socks. This year, Toronto's got another dumping of snow, so I pulled out my trusty Reds... but somehow over the summer/spring (perhaps because i wore them undone a couple times?!) the leather gusset on the inside heel has come unglued on both boots causing bunching and overall uncomfortable boot - today walking home i got the start of blisters... So strange!
I can return them, but from Canada it'll cost me around $20 in shipping, so i might take them to a shoe maker to get the piece glued back down...
Has this happened to anyone else?!

I loved these boots from the first time I saw them but hesitated to purchase because of the price. After several months, a percent off offer and several Bean coupons I ordered them. When I first wore them the sewn in tongue was quite stiff and binding. This had been pointed out by other reviewers, so I was not entirely surprised. I wore them anyway as I love, love, love the red and did not want to return them. After several wearings I've found the leather is softening and conforming to my feet and it feels comfortable now. Although not lined they are warm with my wool socks and we've had unusually cold weather so far for Tennessee. Love my red boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rae1993 Perfect!
I just received my bean boots in the mail after about a 3 month wait and I could not be more pleased! The fit is perfect and they look even better in person. My biggest concern was the size, as the website recommends ordering down a size. I am always a size 7, no matter what the brand. However, I did as the size chart said and ordered a size 6. They fit perfectly. They look great with LLBean's camp socks, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rmacaulay too big:(
I am normally an 8.5 so I ordered an 8 as I was planning to wear the boots with a heavy sock. I ordered a while ago and had only tried them on quickly. I did not realize until I wore them around the house for a few minutes that they are too big, and now the boots are back ordered until February so I won't be able to get more:(

Purchased in 1993 to wear on campus during rainy Virginia winters. Since then I've lived in 4 different states, and wear them to the barn regularly in the winter. Along with my circa 1995 Bean Barn Coat, these are the oldest items in my closet. Thank you for continuing to make them in narrows. Super comfortable, a great boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shantell So far I love them!
I received my first pair of bean boots in the mail yesterday! I decided on the tan/brown and they are absolutely gorgeous. I usually wear a 9 in boots but after reading reviews and sizing information I ended up ordering one size down so I got an 8 and I'm glad I did! I tried them on and they fit perfectly with room for mid-weight socks. I cant wait to wear them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAGirlInVA Awesome boots!
This is my first pair of Bean boots. I read the reviews (and sizing information on the site) ahead of time and decided to order an 8 (I usually wear an 8.5/9). They fit great - a little loose with midweight socks, but perfect with heavy weight, and the red color is fabulous! My new boots arrived today and I was complimented on them this evening! Very comfortable straight out of the box. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by vaness90 Love these boots!
Last month I had bought a pair of these boots in store, and normally I wear a size 10, but a worker told me about getting a size down if I would be wearing more lightweight socks with them (which I would). He had even grabbed a pair for me to try on. So I purchased the boots thinking they were a size 9, but they fit me so loose. So I checked the size and lo and behold, they were a size 10!! I called my LL Bean store and luckily they had the 9's in stock! They graciously took my pair back and I got my new appropriately sized boots. They fit SO well now, and are really comfortable.
I totally appreciate the LL Bean customer service experience, they really are willing to help fix your issue!

Rated 5 out of 5 Beautiful red!
I am normally a size 8 and ordered a 7 in these and they fit perfectly! The red boots are a much prettier, deeper red than on the website. They fit perfectly and comfortably. They definitely don't rub the heel like I had read previously. I tie mine fairly loose but I can see where it would be difficult to tie it tight around your ankle. The leather is not too stiff like I had read in previous reviews. This is a perfect product!
