Fit well, but need to follow the advice in catalog sizing which is to get 1/2 to 1 size smaller than shoe size.
Warm and dry.
Pricey, though. Got with 25% off, which made price only slightly high.

I have always purchases the LL Bean Boot and the duck shoes.
I an a size 11 1/2 AA so have always had a problem with all brands of boots. My initial purchase was size 11 N and then size 12 N, but I am returning for the second time because of sizing. I will probably have to order a size 12 M and hopefully will be a comfortable fit.
I presently have the duck shoe boot that is a size 10 N and is a perfect fit.
My concern is that you need to be more uniform with your sizing in all of your lines of boots and shoes.
As always, Customer Service has been excellent and patient with my returns.

Rated 5 out of 5áby luvmybootsinKentucky Delighted Surprise of Old Boot Replacement
After a few years of wearing LL Bean leather upper and rubber lower boots for daily walks and gardening, one boot started to leak water.
Hoping L L Bean could seal the leak, I sent my boots back for repairs. After a failed attempt to separate the sole from the insulated layer, the craftsman called to say I would receive another pair of boots.
I assumed I would pay for repairs or replacement. But no, L L Bean sent me a new pair for free. The boots are beautifully made in the USA.
I have shared my story with numerous people delighted in Bean's generosity. I am definitely sold on this company.

These boots keep your feet warm and dry when the weather is not. The 8" are just about right for the amount snow that we get in the Mid Atlantic area. The sizing from the sales associate was spot on. One size down on length and go with wide to accommodate the liner. No complaints about these boots. I would highly recommend you go with the Gore-Tex liner.

I received these boots as a Christmas present and have put many miles on them already. I live in Central VA and this winter season has been brutally cold with a lot more snow that this region is used to. I was outside shoveling in these boots with my sherpa lined insoles and bean boot socks. My feet remained warm and toasty despite the 15 inches of snow I was shoveling. The sizing is tricky I usually wear an 11.5 for shoes and 12 for boots, but had to order a size 10 in these. They were a bit wide at first and my heel had a bit of a slip, but with a couple of weeks the slipping stopped and they fit like a glove. LL Bean's outstanding customer service even sent me a size 10 but Narrow so I can find out which boot fit better and I kept the regular width. The narrow was just too tight. I plan on keeping these boots for many many years and I'm not looking forward to the summer months when I have to put them away for the season.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SkyGoddess Great warm waterproof boots!
My son had to have a pair of L.L. Bean duck boots! I too had to have a pair 35 years ago when going off to college! I ordered them for him and they are the same great boots they are always were just better! The technological advances of the past years such as gortex on the inside makes them warmer and even more water proof. As I prepare to send my son off to college in the fall to a climate that is very cold with lots of snow from fall thru spring, I will rest well knowing his feet are warm and dry in his L.L. Bean duck boots! Duck boots dress yet another generation!!! Congratulations to ya'll!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby jorgemc Made the right choice with size 9 wide
Have wanted to purchase the Gore-Tex/Thinsulate boots for some time. The 20% off sale combined with a $10 gift certificate meant the price was right. As with all LL Bean shipping, the boots arrived in a timely fashion - right in the middle of 4 inches of snow with temperatures to -12 degrees. The boots were comfortable right out of the box so I wore them outside within 2 hours to shovel snow in the extreme cold. Although I've had them for only a month, I've gotten many hours in them and remain very pleased with the purchase.
Sizing the boot was the tricky part. Lots of reviews saying to order up or down a size. My only other LL Bean boot is the Cresta Gore-Tex leather hiking boot in size 8 1/2 wide. I wear light weight wool crew socks with them and they fit perfectly. As the 8" boot will not be used for hiking, I wanted the option of wearing heavy weight socks and having the extra room. Choosing the size 9 wide was the best choice for me - wearing light weight wool socks the boots are comfortable, warm and I can slip in/out without lacing.
Figure out the right size for you and I'm sure you will be glad you purchased the 8" Gore-Tex/Thinsulate boots!
