Rated 5 out of 5áby kimliv INCREDIBLE
I waited three months for these boots and it was well worth the wait. These boots are incredibly warm and comfortable. They are well made and will last years.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Boogrrl3 My favorite broken-in-just-right boots on day 1!
I was outside shoveling today for nearly 2 hours in a combination snow/sleet Nor'Easter. It was about 10" deep in the drifts. When I came inside I went directly to the clothes dryer to throw in everything I was wearing because everything was soaked... that is everything except my socks, thanks to my new boots.
My brother and his wife gave me a pair of L.L. Bean boots for Christmas, which fortunately didn't fit. I say fortunately because when I exchanged them I decided to upgrade to the tumbled leather shearling lined boots; I am so glad I did. My least favorite part of getting new boots is the breaking-in period, but L.L. Bean eliminated that with the tumbled leather. The first time I put them on they felt like I'd owned them for years. It was like I had put new laces on my favorite broken-in-just-right boots.
Now it seems that the plow went by and buried the end of the driveway again, so I have to get everything out of the dryer and lace up my boots to go out and shovel some more... and we're supposed to get another 3" by morning. Given the winter we're having these boots could not have come at a better time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mandeemarie BEST BOOTS EVER!!
I had to wait a while for these, they were on backorder almost as soon as they came out this season! I took that to mean they were some pretty amazing boots...and I couldn't be more satisfied.
I normally wear an 8 and took LL Beans recommendation to order a size down. They fit perfectly! I wear with regular to mid weight socks and they keep my feet so warm and dry! There was no break in time at all. I wore them all day with unbelievable comfort. I have had plantar fasciitis issues in the past and these provide plenty of support and my feet are happy even after a long days work!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Paiges The warmest feets in all the land!
I really liked the tumbled leather. It has a broken-in feeling and doesn't rub on any bony prominences. The shearling lined really keeps my feet warm and cozy, but the one thing I was slightly disappointed in, was the fact that the tongue of the boot isnt sewn into the sides like the thinsulate or gortex bean boots. I was really looking forward to keeping my warm feet, dry, and the snow out. However, I can see past it since I live in AR and it really doesn't snow that much. Overall, I'm proud of my purchase and look forward to using my bean boots 3 out of the 4 seasons.Would definitely purchase again!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Maruca Wow! Great boots! Leather is soft.
I just got these boots and love them. I tried the 10 inch shearling boot before and returned because I didn't like how heavy they felt and my feet got cold . I am glad a bought these ones. They are not heavy or bulky. I suffer from cold feet and these boots keep my feet toasty.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MzGunn Amazingly warm, comfortable and cute!
I'm walking on clouds! Seriously, these things feel like huge, warm, fuzzy slippers. I adore them! I've been searching for snow boots forever and I have found the PERFECT pair in these.
Ok, first things first. I normally wear a size 8.5 and my boots are a size 7. They fit fantastically, even with thick socks. So, be sure to order a size and 1/2 down if you are ordering them online and cannot try them on first.
The shearling lining is divine. They keep my feet warm. I'm able to tuck my jeans into the boots easily. The leather is soft to the touch and a lovely warm brown color. My only complaint would have to be about the laces. They are far too stiff. I can barely tie them. However, everything else about these boots is GREAT!
Get you some!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LilStreetE AMAZING City Boot
these boots are perfect for NYC Winter storms. I originally bought the 10" shearling-lined boots but they were SO thick, they were a bit too heavy duty. These are perfect for the 4-9 inches of city snow that we usually get in New York. My feet stay dry and warm through the slush-storms and the powdery snow. I also wear them with wool socks to added comfort and warmth (also, normal socks slip down too easily). Highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Lovinglife1 Wow are these ever so soft! Even more comfortable
I have the 10" shearling boot and now I have these. I like them both, but of course these are way softer. I also like that they are a little shorter at 8" so they are easier and quicker to put on than the 10". It would be nice if they came in different colors. I know my size in Bean boots so that wasn't an issue. This time I did order a 7 w and I usually wear in regular shoes a 7.5 or an 8. I can wear an 7 regular in bean boots, but sometimes with thick socks they feel too narrow. I have some what wide feet, but usually wear regular(not wide) shoes. Again these are a good buy as all Bean Boots..get them before they all sell out.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FrozenInRI Awesome...
I've had LL Bean boots forever. Several different styles as a matter of fact.
These are BY FAR the most comfortable and warmest version I've ever owned.
I usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9 depending upon the shoe. I ordered the 8 and they fit perfectly with a little room for a heavy sock.
These are now my "go to" boots!

Rated 5 out of 5áby XoXi Awesome boots!
When I ordered these they were on back order but they were EXACTLY what I wanted so I figured it was worth the wait. I received an email, a week before the original ship date, telling me that the ship date was pushed back even further (originally Jan 10th switched to Jan 21)! I was kind of angry about it but to my surprise they came the next week! IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! These boots are amazing in the snow! I have been using my Sorel Caribou boots and they are SO heavy and pain to wear all day. If I wear boots because of the snow I wear them all day, I am not the type of person to change my shoes while inside at my office and put boots back on just to go to my car. These boots are perfect, they are lightweight but keep my feet super warm (not too warm to wear all day). I am really glad I waited and got the shearling lined ones, I have had other bean boots and they definitely aren't warm enough to be out in the cold for more than 10 minutes.
BUY. THESE. BOOTS. you won't regret it.
