Rated 3 out of 5 by razz4tazz not that perfect
i always order my boots in 8 (WD), and all of the bean boots & some sneakers have been "true to the fit," except for this pair--a bit long in length (more like an 8 1/2), but also, a bit tight (narrow) in the width. although you can wear this boot w/regular & light weight socks, you would still have either to continue "breaking the boot in," or order this item a 1/2-size up (to an "8 1/2 WD).

Rated 4 out of 5 by mudmood Warm, Comfortable, Easy
I am really happy with these boots. They are incredibly easy to put on, which was something I was worried about before purchasing them. The wool liner has compressed down since I purchased them less than a month ago. I am slightly worried they will not be warm enough when the temperatures get into the teens and lower. If your feet are cold before you put them on, they will not warm them up... or at least that has been my experience. They do not feel as secure as the lace up bean boots, which may be a problem when there are a couple feet of snow on the ground. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend them to a friend!

Rated 2 out of 5 Too wide
I had high hopes for these boots. I love boots that just slip on like these do. However, the opening on these boots is so wide that snow and rain can just get right in. I returned these and will keep looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hedgeworth These boots last!
I bought these boots sometime around 1985! I'm still wearing them. They've had their fuzzy linings replaced about 3 times -- not bad at all, considering their age. You can have the soles replaced, too. The leather part (my old boots are tan) is still in great shape. I keep them near the door and slip them on for dog-walking, trips to the mailbox or birdfeeders, and general winter wear. Often I wear them without socks, and they're still cozy and warm. I wonder if my boots hold any kind of record.

I just bought these boots yesterday and wore them out Trick or Treating. It was rainy and cold but my feet stayed warm and dry. They were so comfortable, I could have worn them without socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hudsonvalley1 Warm and easy
I slip these cozy boots on to walk the dog, get the paper, wood for a fire or go into town to get coffee. No need for socks so they are quick and easy. They're both slipper-like in coziness and waterproof and durable enough for rainy or icy conditions. It's not easy to find all these things in one boot. I do wish they came in the tan leather color like the original Bean boots. That's my only complaint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by helloitsjeanna I wish it came in more colors.
I was looking for a sheepskin lined boot that had the ease of slipping on and off. I hate fussing with laces.
Overall, the fit is kinda big. I usually wear a 6, but there isn't an option to size down to a 5. They fit fine when I'm wearing them with thick socks.
I will say that the width of the shoe from ankle to top of the boot is a bit wide and is wide enough for water/snow to get in.
Don't wear this with skirts or dresses if it's snowing/raining outside because snow/water can enter the boot from the top. If you're wearing jeans or pants, tuck them in and you'll be fine.
I'll probably be buying the laced sheepskin lined boot next winter season so that my feet don't get damp.

EXCELLENT boots! these are exactly what i was seeking in a warm winter boot. They are true to fit IF YOU WATCH THE LLBEAN 'fit' video-- made to be roomy (for wear with heavy socks) and loose in the heel. I ordered a full size down from my normal (7) as i wanted a more snug fit with light weight socks and they are PERFECT. I have a medium width foot and these boots are comfortably snug
wore them right out of the box and they were comfortable-- no 'break in' required
I would recommend these to anyone who wants a good, warm, waterproof, Bean Boot

Rated 5 out of 5 by TillieTraveling Comfortable, warm,snow proof, and easy to put on
I bought this pair to replace identical pair bought about 30 years ago. Its lining had worn out on the bottom. They are wonderful in the snow, especially when it is below zero and icy. I walk my retriever every day and if the cows get out, on go the boots and I can go just about anywhere to round them up. I think these boots will outlast me and I can pass them on to someone else.
