Rated 5 out of 5 by rjnyc Phenomenal Purchase
Apparently, until now, I've never had warm boots in my life, and I've always lived in strong winter climates (Michigan & New York).
These boots are INCREDIBLE. Its been cold (20s) in NYC, and I've been walking around the city in these, wearing only a thin cotton sock with them and my feet have NEVER BEEN COLD! Not even chilly! Also, first boots where I don't sweat in them either so you don't get warm and then freeze. I can't believe I waited so long to invest in these. They're incredible.
I'm sure when it gets colder, or I go playing in the snow, I'll prefer wearing a thicker sock, or if I'm going to be out all day, I'd put on a wool one, but man, I am SO impressed.
The one negative I will mention is that the boots can be a bit slippery on slick metal/paint in the streets. So I would consider getting the "grips" to attach to the bottom for slick icy days. This has gotten better as I've broken them in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sulaseagull I absolutely LOVE my white bean boots!!!!
I LOVE these boots. I have wanted white since I saw them on Kikkan Randall and her team!!!!! I always take a size 8 in boots, shoes, sneakers...flip flops :) etc. and with these boots, I had to order a 7M as they run long. The 7 fits perfectly with regular winter socks. If you are torn as to what color to order, the white is amazing, it looks so classy and feminine. I also get so many compliments on them (from guys AND gals), even my Husband loves them and he usually hates my shoes LOL. You can wear them laced up with skinny jeans or leave them open and folded down, they look cute either way. When I ordered these, they were on back order for two months and to my surprise, they shipped one day later! I was elated :D Thanks LL Bean, you rock as always. These boots are so well made, the quality of the leather is superb and you can see what care is taken creating each pair. Don't wait everyone, order your white boots soon, you will be missing out if you can't get them!!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleElephants Cute white boots
I have wanted white boots and was excited to find these. They seemed awfully expensive, but I decided to go for it and order them. They came really fast - like a week before they said to expect them. I put them on without the laces as soon as I opened the package, and they seemed too long. I was going to return them, but today I decided to try again. This time I laced them up and tried them on with my regular socks. They still felt a bit large, but I thought that they would be OK. Then I put on my heavy socks, and wow, they fit perfectly. But my feet felt kind of cold. Then I realized that I had laced them too tightly. Once I loosened the laces, my feet warmed right up, and have stayed warm. Based on some other reviews, I have purchased the fleece insoles which are on back order until January. I bet that once they come, these boots will fit perfectly with my lighter socks. I love how they look, and they seem to be extraordinarily well made. LLBean wins again !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kelsey511 Awesome Boots!!!
I LOVE these boots!!! My feet are always freezing and these boots actually keep me warm! Not only do they make walking across campus more comfortable (although sometimes I do need to add thicker socks), I look cute doing it. They keep my feet dry and warm, even if I'm trudging through unfortunate amounts of snow. I highly recommend these to anyone who, like myself, finds themselves wondering if perhaps while walking in the snow, their feet fell off a few feet back and they just couldn't feel it happen. If your feet get extra cold in the winter, you NEED these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DisplacedCalifornian Just Wow
I moved to Ann Arbor MI, from sunny Santa Cruz California this year for graduate school, and needed a few winter necessities. Wow, these boots are amazing! I waited until the snow hit, which was early this year, to review these boots. I am more than pleased. Infact, I also purchased a pair of the ginormous sorel Joan of Arctic boots, and believe it or not these boots are significantly warmer than the sorels are! I'm so impressed; these boots are both attractive and incredibly warm. I can't wear them during fall weather (40 degrees and up) because they are just too warm, and that is what the unlined bean boots are for. I wear these with heavy wool socks, so I only ordered one size down. With regular socks I would have needed to order two sizes down as I did with my unlined bean boots. These are so worth the price, and with ll bean's return policy, you really can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ducklintina Fantastic boots!!
After searching the past 3 winters for a decent pair of winter boots my search has finally ended. These boots look great - I live in the UK and currently wear them folded down and I am getting plenty of compliments on them and questions as to where to get them. They are extremely comfortable and water proof - great for muddy and wet days out with the kids and walks with the dog. I already know that when the spring arrives again I will not want to put these boots away.

I am ready for winter with these boots. They fit well and true to size. Wearing high, thick socks increases the warmth and comfort. I just moved to Boston after 6 years in LA and South America so I am not yet used to the chilly weather. Now I am ready for snow, slush or whatever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skiwithme Love them!
I bought these for my daughter two years ago to wear around her college campus. She loved that they were waterproof but did ask me to buy her the shearling insoles/inserts for them as the shearling only lines the ankle and calf area. With the inserts they are now warmer. When she went to study abroad last winter she left her boots home and I wore them a few times and was hooked! I ordered myself a pair and they were on back order but arrived two weeks earlier than stated on my order status. I also ordered myself the shearling inserts. I am giving them 4 stars due to the fact that I had to spend an extra 20 dollars for each pair to line the foot area.For the price of these boots that was a disappointment. She wears size 9 1/2 and the 9 fit perfectly. I wear size 8 1/2 and the 8 fit perfectly.

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.
