Rated 4 out of 5 by Hollis13 I love them too much to return them, but...
They're perfect, they're everything I remember from growing up in CT and ME
(so remember, even with the shearling they're for AUTUMN: they aren't super warm),
but as a 7 1/2, I really should have ignored the size suggestion and bought the 7.
I just wanted to wear them when they arrived last year, and didn't want to take a chance on their being backordered, but the size discontent has deepened with time; even though I love and wear them frequently, it's a little annoying twinge every time I put them on.
EVEN with an added shearling insole to take up space.
Maybe I can have the rubber size reduced when I send them back to be refurbished in 40 years?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hfamily Wow, great fit!
These boots fit like a glove! I am a 7.5 normally with medium width. Ordered a size 7 and they fit perfect. I have wiggle room for toes and can wear with or without heavy socks. So impressed with the support and comfort of the sole. Thank you llbean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LocalMaineAAHHHH Awesomely comfortable!
I can be pretty fussy with how my footwear fits me! After having two ruptured Achilles Tendon repaired (one on each leg/ankle), the fit is very important to me. These boots provide comfort and support. I find that I can wear either a light-weight OR a heavier sock and the boots still provide a comfortable fit. Thank-you Beans for both my boots and having them made in Maine!

These are so much cuter and fuzzier in person. I ordered my regular size (8M) and they are a little big with regular bean boot socks on, but I think they will be fine with my heavier ones. I didn't want to size down because I thought they would be too small with the heavier socks. If they made a 7.5 I would have tried those out. Wonderfully made and the inside is similar to the wicked good slippers which barely leave my feet in the cold temps. I'm excited to try these out this winter. Thank you to Donna for making my boots and I love that LL includes a little note in the box telling you who worked so hard on your boots. :) Very happy!

We bought these for upcoming conditons of wet and slush. So although they havenet been put through the test, we can tell you about the fit. Buy a smaller size then you would ordinarilly wear. We normally wear an 8, we tried on both 7 and 8 and the 7 fit just fine.. The boot is very comfortable and lighter in weight then they appear.

After much debate...I ordered my true size. Turns out, I am very pleased with my decision. I wear a traditional size 8 and don't have any width issues. In my case, all the comments to downsize didn't apply. I believe it is the shearling that makes the difference in the fit of this particular boot. As I loose the loft of the shearling, I can wear heavier socks, if necessary. I also love the affect of the tumbled leather upper- it was the look I had in mind. The overall appeal of the boot is very complimentary to my somewhat conservative style.

by BeanBoot73 Well worth the wait!
I ordered mine in November, knowing that they'd be on back order, and got them in April and they are well worth the wait. I live in upstate NY and we still had a few wintry days so I was able to wear them and I LOVE them! They do run big so I ordered one size smaller and they fit perfectly! They are comfortable, warm, and stylish. I wore "duck" boots and shoes as a kid and loved them and I love my Bean Boots now! My daughter wants a pair so I'll be getting them in the summer so she'll have them for the winter. Definitely a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcc81091 Amazing Boots - worth the wait!
If you can be patient, order these boots! They are the best. I waited 3 months and the moment I put them on I was in love. I am so glad I chose to spend a little more and get the tumbled leather and shearling lined. The leather looks so much more relaxed than the standard boot and having a tongue that is not attached makes for a very easy on/off. The lining is wonderful and not too thick. I like that it is optional for the foot portion (can be purchased separately) because my feet tend to sweat and I just need my normal socks nothing additional. I know the investment in these boots will make me happy for years to come. Thank you!

Have only had one snow storm since receiving, but these were comfortable right out of the box. Looking forward to having them next winter
