Rated 4 out of 5 by Littlepuss High quality, sizes run large
The 10" shearling-llined boot is nice looking and high quality. My only complaint is that the boots do not run true to size. After having to wait for them due to a back order, the regular size was just too big. I had to go through the trouble of sending them back, waiting for a smaller size which is also on back order. I called customer service as I did not think it fair to be charged for return shipping. The rep advised me to send a note in with the return boots explaining this and that I would not be charged for the return shipping fee. Ordering directions only said for half sizes to order down, not regular sizes. Very difficult for a consumer to get the correct fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ADKfamily Comfortable but too small at the top
These boots were great, I really wish they worked out but the top of the boots near the calves were too small and I have skinny legs. The laces were not long enough.I am going to opt for a shorter version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Becks91210 Comfortable but run big
I am a size 6.5, but seeing as that is not an option I ordered the 7m because the narrow also wasn't available thinking I would be wearing thick socks. But the 7 was way to big even with the thick socks. So I returned them (which was extremely easy) and got a 6m which fit perfect with regular socks. The boots are really compfy and can be worn a couple different ways however the sheering doesn't go all the way to the feet. I love the more feminine white over the brown though! I haven't worn them in the cold and wet season yet so hopefully even without the extra shearling they are as warm as they say.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Semioutdoorswoman OK for shoveling, not hiking
I got these because a couple years ago because we had a snow storm, and I all I had to wear were rain boots. My feet hurt really bad from the cold. So these boots do succeed in keeping you feet warm. And they work great for shoveling. But that's about it. The laces are WAY too short, you can barely tie them. The tread is really bad; it isn't deep enough to give you purchase. Their have been quite a few times where I've slipped which is NOT what you want with a winter boot. I wore these for a short hike. The terrain was mostly flat, and these didn't work. I had to walk funny to get a good grip in the snow. Regular hiking boots work better for that. So all in all, good for shoveling, or another time when it's not slippery out, but not when you're hiking or walking in slushy terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MS14 Perfect Winter Boots
I would highly recommend these boots for the winter, especially if you live in an area with a lot of snow. They are insulated, have rubberized bottoms, and are taller than the other duck boot styles. I personally like these boots much better than the shorter boots because they keep your feet warmer. Since the boot is taller, it also allows you to walk through a snow bank if needed. They also go perfectly with leggings and jeans which makes it easier to match when going out. Overall, I would definitely recommend this type of Bean Boot because they are warm, long-lasting, and durable. A perfect combination for whatever winter throws at you.

The sheepskin should be covering the whole interior of the feet area. No sheepskin in the feet area makes the feet freeze. I had to add a sheepskin insole on top and at the bottom to make them warm enough. Socks alone don't do it for Canadian winters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cybrina As described
Just purchased these as I am moving to Iowa to attend college. They fit great and with heavy socks. I am normally a size 7.5, but I ordered an 8 in NarrowAA and they feel snug enough with a little wiggle room. I have yet to experience them in weather conditions like snow and the cold. But it seems that they will do the job. Overall wonderfully made, comfy and light-weight. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovelyLaker Brilliant Boots!
I am absolutely thrilled with these boots! I purchased these boots in brown last Christmas and I am so glad I did because it turned out that I would had plenty of snowy days to try them out! They are sturdy, practical shoes, and my feet stayed warm and dry all day. I also found them to be really comfortable and quite cute- I received a lot of compliments when I wore them with skinny jeans. They quickly became my go-to shoe choice this past winter with all the snow and slush, even in places that are definitely more urban than rural. I only have two complaints about the boots: I had to buy them two sizes smaller than I usually do (my running shoes are a size 10 and these boots are a size 8), and the laces on the boots are too short. Nevertheless, the positive qualities of these boots definitely outweighed the negatives for me. I highly recommend them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rubies Tongue is not gusseted; closure cut too short
I was surprised by how narrow the lace up area was, and how short the laces were. Also, I was unable to pull the strings in tight enough for the two sides of the boot to cover the tongue, wearing medium weight socks, and I don't have a big calf. I have a shorter version of snow boots I purchased 25 years ago from another outerwear clothing store; I can tuck my pants in, and still string up the boots properly. I intended to wear the LL Bean boots for walking and shoveling snow in our brutal New England weather, but with the way these are constructed, the snow would make its way inside the boot without a gusseted tongue. They are obviously lovely boots made in a fashionable winter white leather, the workmanship is high quality, and otherwise very comfortable. The shearling lining is so very warm and soft and comfortable, but my disappointment lies in the construction details. I returned the boots because I honestly need a tall, properly-constructed, comfortable, shearling-lined boot for the winter months because the snow just doesn't seem to be letting up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eivy Great narrows!
The boots were a gift and what a gift. If you have a narrow foot and need warm boots, these are for you. But I need instructions on how to lace the boot if I want to roll down some of the ten inch boot top. The eyelets in the tongue play a part, but how? Putting a simple direction tag attached to an eyelet would be most helpful
