Rated 2 out of 5 by Angela15 big and clunky boots
Wow, looking at the picture and reading the reviews, I had no idea how large-scale these boots would be. They are comically large, like something a firefighter would wear, or that someone might wear with a hazmat suit. I'm really surprised that people haven't commented on this. I would feel ridiculous wearing these indoors at all, and even wearing them in the snow would feel very clunky. Such a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaSal Great boots!
I recently bought these boots for a trip to Churchill Canada. Let me tell you it is really cold there! We spent a lot of time outside as we were on a polar bear expedition. My feet were so comfy and warm through the entire trip. Absolutely love them! I live in the northeast so I will certainly get a lot of use out of them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SAD01 Not the quality I expected.
First off the boots were just not made well in my opinion. Not something I expect from L.L. Bean. The material was cut jagged and patched together in a very shotty way. Seams were uneven and looked like a cheap knock off brand. The boots fit really off as well. Everyone said these ran large and wide - they were neither. My pair was narrow and fit like a snug size 8 without any socks on. With socks on, I could not even get them on! The insert was the standard one L.L. Bean sells, and maybe with that out they may have been wide, but with it in, no way! And not that it was a deal breaker but they are huge. Less uncomfortable that Sorel boots but that strip in the back of the heel is really uncomforrtable, and since these boots have zero ankle support (just like the Sorel boots with the same design) I am not sure what the heck that is there for. It surely cannot be to help put them on and take them off, because it does not.
I am returning these and this will be my 2nd pair of L.L. Bean boots I have returned. I purchased 3 other pairs (same style as these) of Sorel's which also went back. At this point, buying boots online is a complete waste of my time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YesPleaseMoreBoots Awesome boots!
These boots are comfy, warm and look adorable. After a long search and looking at a bunch of ugly boots I bought these last winter, wore them all the time and they are good as new for this winter. Can't wait to slip them on again. Well done!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LunchBagFan Didn't fit as described
I love the look of these boots, but found that the sizing recommendations were not very accurate. I usually wear a 10, but I could not even get my foot into the boot (with lo-cut sneaker socks). Customer service sent me an 11 (great customer service!!), and they fit perfectly...with bare feet. I was very surprised that these were so very small that I could not even put on a wool sock with either size. If the sizing ever changes on these, I would be happy to try them again. I ordered the bison Bean Boot at the same time, in a 10, and they fit me as expected, and the same as the 30-year old pair of size 10 Bean Boots fit me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Storm2015 L.L. Bean: Never stop making these
These boots are fantastic! 1) The style is really cool. So many snow boots out there are ugly. These are so cute! 2) They fit perfectly. I am always a 6.5 in regular shoes and the website says to order up, and that is what I did, and it is a perfect fit, with enough room for good socks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Narrow Great but narrow
These were warm and waterproof just too narrow for me (to be fair, I mostly wear wide shoes, but since I have worn some medium shoes, I thought I would give these a shot).

Rated 2 out of 5 by PracticalTraveler8 LL Bean Snow Boots Poor Fit
I read a bunch of reviews on these before deciding to buy them and there were many on both sides - either people loved them or they fit poorly and were returned. I generally am pleased with LLBean apparel and footwear and have never been motivated to return anything, so I hoped that my reaction would be on the "loved them" side of the scale. Unfortunately they fit very poorly. I have what I consider very average feet, wear medium width on everything and have never had an issue. The boots look great, but they are very wide and the seam between the rubber base and the upper part bulged and regardless of how loose or tight I laced the boot it didn't change. I will sadly be returning these, but I still love LLBean and am sure I will find a better winter boot solution.

I returned the item. Too narrow at the top and to wide at the toes. I liked the style and they looked great but did not feel that way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kyto27 snow boots
I would recommend the snow boots they did keep my feet warm and dry which is what I really was looking for . The only issue I had is they are a little high on the calf for me but not a deal breaker. They also really need to be broken in (very stiff). other than that I love them.
