Rated 4 out of 5 by marylethe Recommendation re size
I wanted these boots very badly and waited several months for them. I just wanted to post that I followed the sizing recommendation and now have to return the boots and the color I like is no longer available in the larger size. I have several LL Beans in a size 6 1/2 and ordered these boots in a 6 to wear with lightweight socks. This was a mistake as they are uncomfortably tight in the toes and I tried them on with thin trouser socks as a lining. I knew that I would not be able to wear them hiking. I need a 7. I guess it just depends on your feet, but I am disappointed as I would have ordered a 7 had I not read the sizing recommendation. Wish I had gone with my instincts!

I'm a happy new customer of comfortable and really waterproof boots I can use in any season, especially in rainy northeastern Italy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MultiplesNY My favorite Bean boots ever
This is the perfect fall boot. It's an instant American classic and extremely well-made. Originally I wanted the cinnamon color but they had only the navy in my size. I went with the navy and cannot believe I ever considered another color! It can literally go with anything and the canvas is soft and flexible but also durable and will stand the test of time. The biggest issue with these is finding them in stock! As for sizing, I wear a 10.5 and ordered the 11. Generally speaking, I'm not sure about sizing down because this is a shoe I would want room for comfort and room for thick socks. I'll stop here because I cannot rave about this product enough! Lastly I'd love to see the canvas Bean boots made for kids: my children would adore them.

I had to wait during the Christmas backorder periord to recieved my boots. I have to say I am happy I stuck it out. I absolutely love these boots. They are comfortable and fit perfect. I ordered a size down per the instructions and am happy I did. We have have had a lot of rain these past few weeks and these boots have kept my feet dry outside, sloshing in the muddy grass with my dogs. I have since ordered anohter pair for my mom in the traditional leather for her birthday and look forward to recieving them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanBagger2 good fit, comfortable
I'm an 11 medium and ordered the 11M. Fits fine even with mid weight socks. Wish it in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatwombat Great light-weight boot
I managed to get 2 pair of these in my size 10 before they are completely sold out- just grabbed the apple cinnamon (which I was told is going to be discontinued) and the marsh brown were delivered today. Living in SoCal, I do not need a boot suitable for the tundra and these boots fit the bill perfectly. They are durable, fit well and are a comfortable weight for everyday use and rain (if we ever get any!). I can also foresee using them around the house to do yard work, etc. The canvas has sort of a mottled/funky look which adds to the charm of these boots.
I do not have a problem getting them on and off- I read where some posters have experienced difficulties. Not sure why although it is important to almost completely unlace them before inserting your foot.
Will look forward to next season's offering of LLB boots- I know now not to dawdle if I see something I fancy!

by RedCanvas Holiday Boot Fun
Went to the Grand Opening yesterday at Park Meadows Mall in Colorado! Yay! Bought these in Red (Apple Cinnamon) and cannot wait to wear them for this Holiday season and years to come! :)
I am a solid 10 women's however they were too big! So got these in a 9 and they fit perfect with a smart wool sock! Never wear a 9 so when they say buy a size down...do it! :)
Love Love Love how classic and fun these boots are!

Rated 5 out of 5 by roreilly Love Love Love!!!
I love everything about these boots! They are good looking, comfortable, and they keep my feet warm and dry! The cinnamon color is vibrant yet not loud. The hight is just right. I was worried they might not have enough cushion, but they feel just fine. I normally wear a size 7 or 71/2. I bought these in a size 6 and they are just right with a mid-weight sock. Seriously, I'll be sad when spring comes and I'll need to take them off. These boots can be tough to track down, but you won't regret it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FashionBGirlie First LL Bean Purchase, and I'm in love!
Ok, I'll admit it. At the time that I bought these, I was a California Girl who thought L.L. Bean was a company for old people. But then one day I found the signature line, and the cult following for "Bean Boots," and I was sold. When I saw these cool waxed variations of the traditional bean boot, I knew this was the boot for me.
I initially bought these when I was headed to the North West for a short trip and wanted a rain boot that was fashionable with a little edge that I could use once I got home. These kept me looking fashionable and pretty dry as I tromped around the puddles and rain of Seattle.
Now that I have moved to the Northeast, I have reached for these in the beginning rainy season and am very happy with the traction they provide while looking fashionable.
The one and only issue that I've had with these boots is that they are water resistant and not water proof (though I don't think L.L. Bean claimed they are), which is probably what I actually need. In heavy rain fall and on a light snow day, I noticed a slight amount of wetness coming through near the top of the shoe where the laces start. This led my feet to become just slightly chilled in that area, I was wearing a couple pairs of socks. The chilly feeling did not spread.
I may have to purchase some official snow boots to keep all of the wetness out and be better prepared for a very cold season since these aren't insulated, but I have otherwise been very satisfied with my purchase. They're exceptionally made and are so versatile that they are worth keeping for everything except the winter. I plan to try thicker socks and see how long I can wear them

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheNeneBean Never Taking Them Off
I loved these at first sight but when I tried to order they were sold out in my size online. I called customer service and they were wonderful and tracked some down at a store in New York. The New York store was also wonderful and took my order by phone and put them in the mail right away. The sizing guidance is spot on. The 10'' is high enough to make the boot comfortable and fashionable. The marsh brown is a fatigue greenish brown and very attractive. My husband saw them on me and immediately decided he wanted some for himself. They are a wonderful, American made, boot and I am so so so happy LLBean worked so hard to help me get some. Thank you!
