Rated 4 out of 5 by AlaskaRyan surprisingly warm
I normally wear size 9W in LL Bean footwear. These are a tad too large.
Leather was rather stiff when new, the boots have begun to fit much better as the leather uppers become broken in and soft.
I live in rural, interior Alaska and we get temps around -50 and -40. I find these boots are OK with warm socks to about -20 as long as you are moderately active. I wear them to youth hockey games and my feet are fine. Anything towards -30 and the feet start getting cold. These boots just don't have the insulation for those temps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hhiker99 Difficult sizing
I normally wear a 10B shoe. I ordered both a 9B and a 10B in this boot. The 9B was too narrow and the 10B too long. As usual, return was simple to Bean customer service. I now am awaiting the arrival of a 9D which should fit just right--backordered however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Almace Excellent boot, but doesn't fit me well
The heel box of this boot is too short to fit me comfortably--my heel rubs against the leather upper--which is a shame, because this is otherwise a perfect cold-weather, all-weather boot, waterproof and insulated.

I wear a 11 wide so I did what LL recommended and ordered 11w .Boots arrived and even with thick socks they they were a little big and there was some heel movement.Customer as usual was great,I re ordered the 10W and returned the others to my local LL Bean store.The new boots arrived and were a perfect fit with thin through thick socks with a little room to spare.Very happy with these boots,Bring on the winter>

Rated 4 out of 5 by Greatbootsforwinter Great boots for the winter
I spent a lot of time on LL Bean looking at the reviews people posted to figure out the sizing. My husband wears a 9 1/2 and I bought him a size 9 which is perfect with a regular compression sock. I also bought a pair because the women's 8 in. boots are backordered until June! I wear a 9 1/2 in women's and I bought a Men's 8 and they are a little roomy with just a compression sock on but very comfortable. I have only worn them a couple of times. I'm still debating if I should keep them because they are pretty "manly" looking. I have a pair of the 8 in.coming in late June. These boots would have been great for this winter with all the snow we had.

I love the pair I have- but they were getting tired so I ordered a new pair. The sizing recommendations said order a size down - so I did - and they were too small. Now I have to pay for return shipping because there is no "you told me to order this size but they were wrong" check box on the form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by timeh really like them, wish some were available to buy
i have these boots, and i really appreciate them on winter days with lots of rain snow or mud. i usually wear them with a pair of bean boot socks, and heavy pair of home made knitted wool socks on also. I have been wearing them a lot more this year with all below zero temperatures. i've had the same pair for eight years, and I have only had to replace the laces. I'm a dock builder and being warm and dry is hard to do at work but these boots do it. Only problem i have is that i wanted to get my brother a pair of size 12 EE and they don't seem to have any, or know when they ever will!

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!
