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!

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.
