Rated 5 out of 5 by orchard1988 Warm & Comfortable Shearling-Lined Boots
I normally wear a size 8 Medium shoe, but this boot was too tight with the shearling lining, so I exchanged it for an 8 Wide which fits perfectly! These boots are warm and comfortable, and they will keep your feet nice and dry on a cold, rainy, or light snow day. Highly recommended!

Excellent fit; these do not slip in my left heel as most shoes and boots I have do. I like these if I have to go outside in wet, cold weather for short periods. I can slip them on and go, no lacing or tying. I also like them when coming in from cold weather; I slip them on my bare feet and they warm right up. Despite their bulk they feel like a moccasin and I can wear them for hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momabouttown Not quite what I needed but great boot
I bought the boot hoping to make it my walk the kids to school and around town boot but when I got it I realized it is much to low to work for us. (We do not sidewalks in places and this would just end up being a wet walk). I would advise to order up if you are planning on wearing thick socks because they barely fit with thin to no socks when I tried them on. They are very cosy and if you are just going in and out of buildings or places that snow is not an issue then these would be great boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BBHolistic Best Winter Boot Ever
I ordered this one size down as recommended by LL Bean. It is a fantastic boot. It is worth buying the boot with the shearling lining which keeps my feet warm. I also like the waterproof quality of the shoe. The only cautionary note that I have is that I almost slipped on some wet tile (the tile is not slip proof). I was surprised; I thought the shoe would be slip proof. I think if it was icy outside I would buy/add the "stabilicer" product that LL Bean sells. For a walking shoe through the spring and winter days (without ice), I really like how warm and dry it keeps my feet. I would consider getting the taller boot as well. I wanted this because it is easy to slip on and off.

I love the look of these and the lining. However, wish they came in half sizes. Had to go up one size larger now to big and way to wide for me. will have to wear extra socks. I also dont like the way they lace up they dont close very tight. Still thinking about returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chszshopper Love them!
These boots were a great purchase. They are so warm, comfortable and really keep your feet dry. They do run big! I found that the next size down fit perfectly. I normally wear a 10 but the 9 was a better fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WesternMassLady Love them but could use a few changes
These boots are extremely well made but I wish I could pull the leather ties more to tighten the boots. I have narrow heels and my heels slip out a little when I walk but I think if they could be tightened more, it would help. I have wanted this boots forever and finally purchased them. I will keep them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trykon Odd Sizing
The quality was excellent but two pairs of these were returned because of odd sizing. Sizing on bean boots is strange to begin with (I normally wear a 14 but need a 12 in mens rubber mocs) but these are even worse. My wife wears an 8 in every other Bean shoe but these were too short for her so we exchanged them for a 9. The 9 was so wide in the heel she couldn't keep them on her feet.
If you can get the sizing to work for your this is undoubtedly a great product, the fit is just one of a kind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kmobg Great shoe too bad sizing makes no sense
I wear size 6m or 6 1/2 m in some sizes. This shoe was a full size too large. It seemed to be sized in a man's size 6. The shoe even with the shearling lining was huge on my foot. I was very disappointed that the sizing of this shoe made no sense whatsoever and also offered no smaller size

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanfromCanton My new "go to" dog walking shoe
My dog (a retired racing Greyhound) and I hit the sidewalk at 5 AM every day. If the grass isn't covered with dew, it's got frost, snow, or rain! Waterproof shoes are essential. Slip on shoes are essential. Warm shoes? A bonus for me. I asked for these for Christmas, and my Mom bought them for me. I have really enjoyed them. Warning: do not undo the fancy way they come tied to you! Ignore the picture on the web site showing a cute little plain bow. They come tied up in such a way that pulling the laces actually tightens them for you. If you undo that, I don't think they will.
I have to say I think the price is a little high--which is why I asked for them as a gift instead of just buying them myself. I've been wearing some form of Bean boot since prep school, and the prices seem like they've gone WAY up of late. Considering they're rubber and leather, I'm not quite sure why. But this is an excellent shoe. No good in snow over a couple of inches; it gets inside!
