Rated 1 out of 5 by paultheaviator ll bean boot with thinsulate
I had owned a pair of the traditional boots from llbean for years and they were great. These new ones with thinsulate are significantly less warm. Since insulation value depends on thickness, and this thinsulate is thin, inadequate insulation occurs. My feet were always cold in these. I miss the boots with the removable and warm inserts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WSS1 Great step up from insulated boots
This is my second pair of bean boots. I felt that the traditional insulated pair was not warm enough for midwestern winters. The goretex insulation is very warm, enough that I probably won't need wool socks with them too often. Additionally, the leather uppers are a little more sturdy than my previous pair. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCXENA Fit review for men's 8" duck boot with thinsulate
These were purchased as a gift for my nephew, who will be starting his MA program this fall "up north" at Cornell. He's from SC, so those winters will come as a shock, haha! LL Bean has the best rep when it comes to fashionable, functional cold-weather gear.
In spite of some reviews that advised going a full size down, I ordered only a half size down. He wears a size 10.5M, I ordered a size 10M. With medium weight boot socks on, the fit was perfect, both in length and width. He couldn't be more pleased. Only time will tell how well they hold up, but Bean's guarantee goes a long way to assuage any doubts when purchasing a pricey item like these.

High quality, great fit. The folks I interacted with on the phone were the best customer service people I have ever encountered.
Thank you for making this a great customer experience.

Have been wanting to buy a pair of these boots for many years. Although they aren't cheap by any stretch they should last for many years and I'm fairly hard on boots. Love to fish and hunt and so far these boots are comfortable and keep my feet bone dry. Really like ease of putting the boots on and taking off. Recommend reading sizing instructions closely when ordering. Also... I normally wear a size medium shoe but had to send original pair back and re-order a wide size. Great quality!

These boots were bought as a gift for my husband for his birthday.After a long wait I was so excited when the boots were delivered The.boots were good looking and great quality,. but boots were very narrow even in an xtra wide width. Anyone who has a wide foot like himself will have trouble with the fit on these boots...

I've had Bean boots for decades and couldn't love them any more than I do. A great product - and well worth the price. LL Bean stands behind all of their self-branded items. It's one of the best reasons to shop at LL Bean - whether online, via catalog, or in a store.

I purchased these boots for by boyfriend last year without the thinsulate. He loved them so much that I ordered a new pair this year for colder temperatures. His are special order since size 11EE, but it is worth the wait! He works outside and wears these boots everyday! Thank you for making a GREAT boot!

Best winter boot, ever. Period. Usually wear a 10, ordered a 9. Were a tiny bit snug, but wore them for a good long walk, and they loosened up, and now fit like a glove. I only wear thin socks with them, think wool or thick socks would be a bit too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BC24 Great boots, comfortable and warm
These are just as expected, and the waterproofing and thinsulate make a big difference.
I'm usually a solid size 11, sometimes wide. But I ordered a size 10 in these and they fit perfectly.
I wish they had some more color choices for men, but these are classic so not much to complain about.
