Rated 3 out of 5 by Tanya15466 Getting them on
Does anyone else struggle to get them on or am I the only one? Any solution to this? It's super frustrating :(
I love them, but I can't wear thick socks and I feel like im going to rip them trying to get them on. When I do get them on they fit just right if anything they are a little too big..

Ok so I have had the Mocs in this boot for years as my run outside to do stuff shoes. Pretty expensive for what I use them for...but again they will last forever. So I just got my 8" Bean Boots. They are so cute. I'm 48 and love cute fashions (Uggs ??) I plan to wear with jeggings, leggings and skirts with tights and scrunched socks. I also got the Bean boot guard conditioner with my $10 gift card. Ok so I just chatted with a rep about the tongue bunching and break in. I have seen a lot of suggestions online about soaking in water to break in. Bean rep said NO! Best way to break them in is wear and the conditioner. DO NOT SOAK IN WATER. She said the tongue will lay down with break in. Also note lacing... bottom is over, not under. As for sizing. I usually wear an 8 1/2 sometimes I take a wide but most of my shoes are medium width. So I tried on the 7 medium. (In store) It fit but with sock (normal not really thick) it was a little snug in the ball of the foot area. I ordered the 7 wide (wide and narrow not in stores) it fits great. The moc is roomier for easy slip on and off so hard to compare the sizes. Like my Mocs are 7W but I can wear them with slipper socks. That's the point i.e. Run out to get the mail. Also, both mine are the brown rubber bottom. I hope this helps. The rep also said, no worries if they don't break in right I can exchange or get a refund. So if your on the fence, better order now they sell out and are on back order by about this time of year until spring.

I just got my boots today and was so sad that I was one of the ones that couldn't get my foot in without a struggle. It wasn't as dramatic as some of the reviews I've read, but it was enough of a stuggle not to want to deal with it. Once the shoe was on it was comfortable, but the getting it on and off was too much of a struggle. The boot was beautiful and I really wanted to keep them, but they just weren't going to work. :(

I love the boots and I think they are super cute. I can't wait for winter to get here to wear them. I usually wear 8.5 however with these I decided to go for the 8. When I put the boot on the tongue of them does not lay down flat it almost bulges up an doesnt look right. Does anyone else have this problem?

Beautiful, high-quality boots. I normally wear a 7.5 and purchased a 7--I can wear them with thin or thick socks, which makes them super versatile! They'll be great for cool, rainy autumn days or the dead of winter.
I only wish that these boots were offered in the tumbled leather; right now there's only the shearling lined boots with that option, and that's much warmer than I need for my MO climate. I'm purchasing in August to beat the fall/winter rush, so maybe more options will be out later.

Growing up just outside of Boston, we lived in these boots when we were kids so I decided to grab a new pair this year before they're back-ordered. I ordered them Friday afternoon and they arrived on Monday. I love them! I'm a size 8-8.5 and went back and forth between ordering the 7 or the 8 and ended up getting the 8. They are definitely a bit large with very thin socks but with a camp sock they fit pretty well and while I didn't have much trouble tugging them on (the tongue is sewn all the way up), I could see how this could be a problem if I went with the 7. And yes, they are very stiff, but a month of breaking them in is worth it when they'll last 30+ years! I almost can't wait til summer is over so I can wear them!

I'm obsessed with these boots! I'm usually a size 7.5, but I ordered a size 6 and it fits perfectly. I can't wait to wear these boots in the fall and winter! SO CUTE

by Truckosaurus My boots after one season of wear
I received my boots in November 2015 and wore them from December through April. Here is a photo of my boots after one season of daily wear - out walking the dog twice a day, going shopping, running errands, etc. The boots have held up very well. The tread will wear out before the leather and rubber uppers do.
I cleaned the leather once a month with a weak water and vinegar mixture, then put LLBean Boot Guard on them. I treated the rubber uppers with Armour All.
As you can see, the boots have worn in, but not worn out. Very well made. I found them comfortable with thick socks, and too loose with medium socks. I purchased the wide, because my foot is slightly wide. I probably should have bought the medium. I wear a size 12 women's shoe, and bought the size 11. I have a thumb-width of room in the toe box, which is just right.
