Rated 4 out of 5 by STHRetired 7"Shearling pull-on men's leather upper boots
My husband is normally a straight 9 shoe/boot. The size 9 was too small (but heel lifted out because length was longer than usual. The size 10 was too big all over.
The quality of the boot is beautiful; wish they had fit him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPinCT My go-to winter storm boot.
Indestructible for over a decade now. Just enough traction and feel when walking in tough winter nonsense. Easy enough to get on and off in and out of the house, and for slipping off when I get to the office (where there's often more shoveling to pitch in on) and swap for shoes.
The bit about a somewhat small fit is when you wear thick socks it's a bit snug - but if I'd remember to just wear normal socks that would stop. Living in the slushier part of CT now the rubber bottoms really earn their keep. I'd buy another pair if these would just wear out, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 509Airdale Very Fine Loungers
I decided to get these after wearing my Bean shearling slippers out in the rain and other weather one time too many.
The Loungers arrived today and I put them on at once. I was wearing medium weight boot socks and the Loungers felt a tad snug. I took off the socks and they felt fine, a little on the narrow side, but overall pretty good. I considered returning them for a size larger, but even as I wore them they began to slop about on my feet. I then thought a size larger would be way too big.
After a few hours, inside and out, the rubber must have warmed, because the Loungers felt just great. I put on the medium (Bean) boot socks and they still feel just great. I am pleased I did not exchange them.
I believe the key point is that these are LOUNGERS; I will not wear them out for a long hike, but I will trudge out to wood pile in the back yard, in these and my robe, and will certainly take the dogs out for a walk with them. I think these are just the thing for people like me who tend to wear the shearling slippers all over the place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peter58 But read fit information
I purchased the recommended size. They did not fit my foot. I will admit to being bit hard to fit but comfort mocs in wide fit me great. I ordered these as recommended and the heel was sloppy loose while my toes were uncomfortably squeezed. A size bigger might have helped with the toes but only exaggerated the looseness of the heel. I returned them and bought the insulated side zip in a half size larger than my shoes. Fit is perfect and feel great in a light sock.
Love your return policy

Great boot! At first I though a little bit narrow, but they molded to my feet well. The customer service and shipping was excellent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pantswearingperson Didn't work for me.
Medium width was too narrow for me and I have narrower than average feet. Fit overall was just no good for me. I really wanted to like them since it's been a while since I had some Bean boots and these are Maine made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HGW86 7" Shearling Pull-Ons
Looks great! However, the lower rubber boot is cast to an individual that has oversized heals. Hence, for normal size heals, the excessive movement up and down will cause blisters before to long. As for the height, L.L. Bean marketing types should consider raising the height to 8" vs. 7" to better protect against the elements.
As a footnote, I am much more inclined to purchase Thinsulate or neoprene built pull-ons that resist compression over time. Fleece interiors are hard to maintain and guaranteed to lose their supple stature with constant wear. So, what's the point?
Sadly, I returned my boots for credit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFrquentBuyer Great boot!
It toook some time to buy these boots because of some of the reviews mentioning the narrrow fit, but finally bit the bullet, and am very happy I did. Out of the box they looked great, but when I first tried them on I was concerned, as they felt narrow. But after wearing them for a few days, they seem fine and with this freezing weather we are in,they are perfect. These are the best boots I have owned, and beat the zip front boots I bought at LLBean two years ago. They do not ride my shin when I walk, and are all around very comfortable. Would recommend to everyone.
