Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovebean980 Best boots out there
I bought these boots 6 or 7 years ago and they are still my go to boots when the weather changes. I am usually a womens size 6 and the size 3 was a perfect fit; there is PLENTY of room for thick socks. I have worn these year after year and they still look like new! These are great boots made with quality materials that have definitely surpassed my expectations. LL Bean sets the bar high; don't hesitate to purchase these boots!

by Sara1924 Love my bean boots!
I love these boots. I bought the kids size 4 and they fit great. I am a 6.5 or 7 in women's. I wear them all the time and they are comfy. They fit with big socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMR24 A great boot
These were the first Bean boots I got and they were great! I am usually a women's size 6 but a Kid's 4 fit me perfectly.
I ended up exchanging these for a lined pair because I go out at night in the winter I needed real winter boots. These unlined ones are great for summer, fall, and spring though and have the versatility to be worn in many different kinds of weather.
I would recommend always wearing these with thick, tall socks. I wore them with thin, over the ankle socks once and over the course of the day my socks rubbed down to my heel and my calves and ankles had blisters from the leather boot shaft rubbing them.

Waterproof, comfortable, and fits perfectly! I wear anything from a size 5-6 in women's, but had to get a size 3 for these bean boots. I live on a campus where it snows and rains a lot and randomly. These shoes have been a life saver!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peiszutu Great mild winters; not so great for harsh ones
I am a woman with size 6 feet. I bought these in a size 3 because the women's bean boot were extremely large eventhough it says they're a size 6. They fit more like a size 7 or 8.
I've worn these boots all last winter and all through the rainy season of spring in Vancouver, BC, Canada. They were great; kept my feet warm and dry in inclement weather. They were stiff at first but quickly worn in with daily use. I also liked that it has better support than my rubber boots. I loved them!
However, this winter I've brought them up north where temperatures can reach minus 85F with windchill. It's only November and temperatures have already reached minus 77F. I wear these boots everyday to and from work. I'm sad to say, they do not do the job. My feet are cold even with thermal socks and are quick slippery when walking over icy patches which is the entire landscape up here in the winter.
I will have to go back to my heavier and bulkier winter boots for the north. But I will certainly continue to enjoy these boots in milder winters for many winters to come.
Overall, I'm satisfied with the boots. These would get 5 stars if the insulation was better for harsher winters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MJ568 Sizing Adjustment for Women with Small, Wide Feet
I bought these for myself, since I have smaller feet. In adult sizes, I would probably wear a size 5.0W but I can never find them, so I usually settle for size 5.5M.
Following the advice of other reviewers, I ordered a size 3. These fit well if I'm wearing thin socks: over a pair of long, thin, smartwool socks, the boots fit well in the width and are just a tad long.
However, I can barely get my feet in the boots if I'm wearing thick winter socks. The length is probably ok, but it's hard to tell because the width is so constrictive I immediately had to take off the boots.
So, here's my advice for people with wide feet: If you plan to wear these boots over thick socks, subtract one from your women's size (i.e. Women's size 5 = Children's size 4).
If you plan to wear these boots over thin socks, subtract two (i.e. Women's size 5 - Children's size 3).

Rated 5 out of 5 by LacyJay Great boots!
The boots live up to the reputation! I stomped through puddle after puddle on purpose and my feet stayed dry! I wear thick socks so my feet stay warm in them and the fit is good. I have a wide foot and wish there was a selection for that when purchasing, but the fit is good either way! I am a 5.5 in womens and I got the 3 in kids and they're perfect! I have worn them almost everyday since I've had them. They held up and didn't make my feet sore after hiking at Cuyahoga Valley which is a relief because it was muddy and rainy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by princessandthepea GREAT BOOTS BUT----
Would much prefer the slip on version as it is easier to get in and out of when busy.
Hint: Bring back slip ons.
