Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul55 Great Boots, but.........
I purchased the boots at an LL Bean retail outlet and the sales person recommended that I buy them one size smaller than my true foot size. I'm glad that I took his advice and the boots fit great.
My only surprise was that the finger loop on the back of the boot for pulling them on is too small. I can't get past the first knuckle on my index finger, making the loop relatively useless. My fingers are not overly large. Since these are classic LL Bean boots and have been around for a while, I have to believe that other consumers have had the same issue.
Other than the small loop, I love the boots and do highly recommend them.

This is an extremely comfortable boot and is well made without cutting corners. It will stand up to the test of weather and time and will still look great.
One thing I particularly like about this boot is my ability to manage my heat with the weight of socks and do it comfortably. In the spring and fall I can were a thin, almost dress sock type, when the temps start climbing. In the winter I can throw some heavy weight socks on and be comfortable for almost all winter events and activities. Of course, I'm going to choose a different, more technical boot if I'm climbing a mountain or traversing waist-deep snow but it can handle almost everything else (depending on your activity level, of course).
I'm not going to wear them in the warm summer rain and will probably purchase a non-insulated one for that purpose.
Great boot, not the original bean boot, as it is catered to the younger crowd, but still a wonderful buy.

You already know what makes Bean Boots special, that Maine style, the no nonsense rubber sole that keeps your feet dry when conditions are a mess.
What makes these so special is the fleece lining, the thin insulation and the tumbled leather that adds a nice supple feel to the upper compared to the normal boots.

I got a pair of these a few years ago. They fit, well, like a glove. The problem is that these boots were too cold the few times I needed them to keep me warm.
I talked to a buddy of mine and he said, they are too small. They should not fit like sneakers. You should have some room for air to move within the shoe.
Took his advice, got a size 10 ( I wear a 10.5) and they fit as he described: well, with a bit of room.
When I went back into deep cold and snow these boots did just fine. Temperatures were from 11-30 degrees and they did great.

A lot thicker bulkier than expected. A very warm boot none the less.

I just received these boots and put them on to make sure they fit. Now I don't want to take them off. They are big, but not uncomfortably so. I generally wear a 6.5 - 7, so I purchased the smallest size I could, a 6, and there is about 3/4 inch of space in the toe. I'm wearing thin athletic socks, however, so there will be less space when I put on heavier socks.
Though they are large, they are so comfortable! So soft and light, and warm. I can't believe it. I immediately went online to order a second pair in brown. The leather is very soft, as is the wool shearling. The soles are very light and flexible. They are a joy to walk in. I can't recommend them enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allhands57 Great warm Boots!
Love them! Just wish they had a full gusset to make them waterproof in deeper creeks. I have 3 pairs of Maine Hunting shoes with the full gusset and all of them are great

I am a Woman and I absolutely LOVE these boots. I am a womens Size 10 and first ordered the Mens 8 - they were too big. I finally ordered the Mens 7 and they are just perfect. So Warm, So Comfortable, so timeless. I will be returning the my size 8's since they were too big. These are the best boots EVER.
