Out of the box, used them to clear snow from a three car driveway and 100 feet of sidewalk. Great fit, comfortable temperature control, good grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennJenno Worth the wait! But order early.
I purchased these boots for my son as a Christmas present. I knew that they are always on back order, so I placed my order early - like the first week of November. Guess what!? I was STILL not going to receive them until the 8th of February. Well, good enough. Son attends college in the cold snowy mountains, and his semester wouldn't start until the last week of January. Well, he arrived back at college, and the boots were there waiting for him in the mail room. Two week ahead of schedule! Since receiving the boots, son wears them every day. They are warm and waterproof when he is outside waking to class, but still very comfortable when he is sitting in his classrooms or walking around inside a building. And they look fantastic. Very well made. He is very happy with the boots, and so am I. (He has the Thinsulate AND Goretek boots.) I highly recommend the boots, and the great customer service from LL Bean. But DO order early. Very early.

My son loved these boots, but they were back ordered before Christmas so he did not get them until January 29, 2016, a late Christmas gift. They are a really good looking pair of boots, appear to be well made and they are even light weight. I will probably order my younger son and husband a pair also.

The boots are warm and dry and fit better than any boot I've owned in the past. It was worth the wait of 2 months to finally get the boots. I also own the four inch gore -tex, thinsulate boot that convinced me to order the 8 inch boot. I am now set for any storm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guus Lived up to the hype
First off, I'd like to think Kathy who worked on the boot. She did an excellent job.
As for the boot, the fit was large as explained. I usually wear a 9.5 for boots and dropped to an 8 for these. That worked out as expected. Now, I normally get a narrow fit but went for the medium width for these because they were available. Turns out the medium is just right on my feet. Could be because of the thinsulate, so I can't speak for the regular design.
They arrived a day before the current big storm (Bought them on a Weds, arrived on Friday) and these boots kept me warm and dry through all the snow. Would not only recommend these boots, but would also buy another pair for a loved one.
Well done, L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lkj8640 GREAT boots!!
My boyfriend ordered these for me in early November as a Christmas present. The women's boots were on back-order until March, so we did some researching and found out there were very few, if any, differences between the men's and women's boots - so we ordered the men's boots! The men's weren't back-ordered so we got them in time for Christmas! I wear a women's 10, so we got a men's 8. They fit perfectly. They're so comfortable, warm, and practical. Not only do they keep my feet warm and dry but they also look pretty cute :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by NDCountryGentleman Bean boots
On the day I received my first pair of Bean boots, we were in the middle of a pretty good snow event here in North Dakota. I wore them to work without a change of shoes, and they were comfortable all day long. They were warm and dry outside, and even worked well in the office. They weren't overly hot and had good breathability, So it turned out, my Bean boots were all I needed that day. I now look forward to snowy days, almost as much as I look forward to wearing my Bean boots!

These boots are wonderful. I am very glad that I read the customer reviews about sizing. All the extra stuff inside these boots makes them run a little bit truer to size. I ordered a half size down, and with a good thick pair of socks, they fit perfectly.

Wonderful boots, I like thick socks with my boots so ordered my regular size and they fit perfectly. My best advice is not to order a size down. You always want to wear thick socks with your boots. They are beautifully made and will last a lifetime. Everybody needs a pair of these.
