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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Neemz Not the quality I expected
I ordered these in black last year and I was extremely disappointed by the quality. I wore them for one season and before the winter was even over the stitching on the side had come undone, creating a hole in my shoe and causing them to leak whenever I wore them in the rain or snow. The inner lining on the heel has also deatched from the shoe so it gets caught on my foot whenever I slip them on.
All in all, I expected more from L.L. Bean. It makes me question the quality of their products but this may have just been an anomaly so I was going to exchange them. However, they are no longer selling them in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidwesternBootFan Just what I wanted
I bought these boots to keep my feet happy during rainy and snowy days in the midwestern winters. They're extremely well crafted (which I expected). I love the bright red color and can't wait to look down and see these red shoes in the snow this winter. I ordered a 7 (I normally wear a 7.5). They fit perfectly with thick wool socks and are just a little bit loose with lightweight socks (but still more comfortable than the cheap rain boots I had before). I plan to wear them mostly in the winter when its cold and rainy/snowy. But since they're made of leather and not overly big or insulated, I think they'll work well for rainy days throughout the year. For new boots the leather is surprisingly soft and supple. I don't think they'll be very hard to break in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon1992 Comfortable, Durable
I studied abroad in Italy during the spring and brought these boots for travel. It is cold and rainy in Italy, so I wore my bean boots nearly everyday. They were incredibly comfortable to walk in, warm, and durable through the rain and cobblestone streets, and they are still in great shape! Love these boots!

by alexbtos Perfect fit!
I was scared that the size down would be too big still because the women flannel was a little too big but nope! follow their sizing chart! I loved these boots! I've received so many compliments along with "those are back in?" Hey they are cute & they keep my feet warm! Differently a fall staple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BootWearer01 Great buy
I've had always wanted a pair of boots that can withstand the weather but was also durable and fashionable. These boots are awesome. The fit is larger as stated in the ordering instructions. I normally wear an 8 so I ordered a 7 and they still run a little large. I purchased some merino wool socks and they fit so well with the boots.

I am so glad I purchased these boots. I'm a California girl who moved to northern italy and the moment it hits 50 degrees, my feet are always freezing. I'm really glad I purchased these because the moment I tried them on, my feet were so nice and warm. You can just tell that these will last me for a really long time. The quality of it is just amazing. I am usually a size 8 but with the sizing guide, I stuck with an 8 (even though they run pretty big) so i can bundle up my feet with thicker socks and just in case my feet swell when I get pregnant. Thank you LL Bean for such an awesome product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbrownbear BEAUTIFUL Boots
I bought these early so I could get the white ones, I just fell in love with the picture. These were not disappointing at all! I did follow the suggestions from LLBean on sizing (this is the reason behind the 'slightly large' I chose) and they are a perfect fit! I have been looking for a semi-short boot for the winter and these 'fit the bill'. I can't wait to wear them this winter. Since I live in the north I am sure I will get plenty of good use out of these boots. Thank you LLBean for a stylish mid boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daryn Worth every penny!
I usually wear a size 10 in women's and like the instructions say, I ordered a whole size down. Also because I have a really thin narrow foot I ordered it in the AA narrow.
This boot fits awesome. L.L. Bean definitely knows what they're talking about regarding the size and shape of this boot. I still have room to wear either thin or thick socks with the boots size that I ordered. You can tell they're just so well-made. Extremely comfortable. I can tell these are going to be a favorite of mine.
You'd be crazy not to buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Savannahgirl Amazing color!
Love these boots..... red is my favorite color! The picture doesn't do these boots justice. The photo gives them an orange look but in person they are a rich deep red..... the dyed leather is a perfect match and is gorgeous! Sizing wasn't a problem.... I'm an 8 1/2 but ordered an 8 and it fits beautifully. Love that they are handmade right here in the USA. Can't wait for our weather to cool off so I can show off these beauties! Thanks, LLBean!
