by CoastalCompliance Rebuild on the Soles WOW
Well again LL Bean comes through... I sent these back after a slight issue with the sole of the left boot. Next thing I know the boots come back with BOTH bottoms rebuild, liners cleaned, new insoles and new laces. Oh and all at no cost to me. What a great company with an iron clad guarantee. That is why I am a third generation lifetime customer.
And just in the nick of time as we had a 7 inch snowfall last night. Shoveled, went sledding and walked the dog with my new re-built Bean Boots! Thanks for a great product.

Boots fitted well and worked well through six inches of snow and five miles on their first outing.

Rated 5 out of 5 So Warm!
I bought these boots for myself (a female,) because the women's were all on backorder. I bought an 8 Narrow, as a 9 regular in women's size. The length is a little too long, but not too long that I trip on myself. The width is perfect- for wool socks and regular socks. And the WARMTH! I can't believe how warm they are. I was wearing Sorel's for the last year, and through they kept my feet dry- my toes were always cold. Not with these! A great alternative to the back ordered women's boots, and the same great quality. The snow that Boston has received in the last month alone has been a great test to the durability of the boots. Great job!

Rated 1 out of 5 by UrbanCommuter3331 Very Disappointed
I bought these boots to replace another pair of Bean Boots that had started taking on water through the sole. Unfortunately, these boots were effective for even less time. Although they are advertised as waterproof, after my second short walk (5 minutes) on a snowy sidewalk, my feet were soaking wet. My experience with these boots is that they are marginally better than a pair of sneakers. I will be returning these boots and hope that since they performed so poorly, LL Bean will not charge me the $7 return fee because I am not aN LL Bean card holder.

Hunting as a teenager I purchased a pair of the llbean boots.
At the ripe age of 68, I purchased the same type of hunting boots and when I put them on I felt like a teenager again.
Thank You llbean

I really wanted a car, but my parents bought me a pair of these for my 16th birthday in 1992.
They have lasted me longer than anything I own except for a rifle and a chest of drawers. I owned a pair of $200 Danners that did not last two seasons before leaking, let alone 22 years.
I have never babied these boots. Most years they get polished once with clear Kiwi.
I wore them all day every day for four winters of college in Ann Arbor with no car. That alone must account for hundreds of miles on pavement. As these were my only winter boots all this time, I have worn them hunting hundreds of days, even in the deepest Michigan winters and storms. For days below ten degrees, I add chemical toe-warmers and get by pretty well stand-hunting. I also have shoveled decades worth of driveways in these and put serious mileage on walking the dog an hour daily in season.
In all this time, they have never had a problem. No leaks. Not one loose stitch. The leather is just now starting to lose a little color at the creases. I average 11 years per pair of laces and now the tread is wearing. They are still fine unless I'm on sheer ice headed up the sled hill. I suppose I will get them retreaded at some point.
As far as comfort, these are wonderful. As good or better than anything else I've ever worn. I will always own at least a pair (probably this pair!) for as long as I can still get them made in Maine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MagicalFruit I resisted them for years
I always hated the looks of the Bean boot, but had a boot emergency last winter and found myself buying a pair. They were comfortable immediately. The second day I wore them, I went on a five-mile hike up a mountain in the snow, and the boots were great. They're waterproof, they don't make my socks creep off, they're warm without being too hot. I'm glad I gave up and joined the Cult of the Bean Boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidwesternCityGal Great quality, value, fit.
My fiancé's review of the boot:
Fit a standard size mens 10 like a glove. Very comfortable.
Warmer than the classic LLBean shearling lined 10" boots these replaced, due to ankle rubbing at the shaft/insole seam.
Can confidently stride through puddles up to his shin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by glacierbear best boot for the money
I have just ordered my 4th pair of these Maine guide boots with thinsulate insulation and goretex lining. Every one up here in alaska wears those extra tuffs and I find them to be worthless and wear out easy. the LL Bean boots have been worn out beyond repair. i wear these 6-7 days a week even in the summer. I work as a mechanic and these are just the right boots to keep my feet warm and dry. I never feel like my feet are wet or damp .I have worn these outside at -20F and have been comfortable as long as I was active. i also put a piece of sheer-ling in the bottom for added warmth in the winter. I Tried one pair of extra tuffs and they lasted about 3 months before they started to crack . My feet were always damp from sweating. they were gone and I went back to Bean boots. One day while hunting in South east Alaska My zodiac ran aground on a gravel bar that was not charted. I was standing in the water up to the very tops of the boots and I was totally dry on the inside. My friend in his extra tuffs couldn't believe it. he ordered a pair the next week.

Love these boots. Arrived just in time for another New England snow storm. Boots are perfect, fit great. not heavy but warm. Just what I was looking for. I know a good boot when I slip one on and these are great. Thanks LL Bean.!!!!!
