LOVE these boots. The tumbled leather is definitely worth the extra $$. So soft and comfy. Great insulation and warmth. I've tested the waterproof claim and I can say it's true. The boots kept my feet dry. The best part is the soles are soft and have kept me from slipping on icy days. Like snow tires for your feet! If you live in a land of snow and ice...Buy. These. Boots.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DallasDarling Size down!
I was delighted to receive my bean boots last week! Being the impatient gal I am I chose to get the only pair available before Christmas- the Shearling lined ones! I took reviewer's advice on sizing down even though it made me really nervous... I wear size 11 and haven't worn a 10 in over 10 years. I'm glad I did! Plenty of room for socks of all sizes without being too roomy. The fur only extends the length of the leather, which is nice. The quality is superb and the leather is wonderful. The only problem I have with them is personal- they're too warm for my climate most weeks! Obviously this is my fault but if you're in the South I'd recommend the thinsulate options if you're looking for warmth and several months of wear! They're incredible snow boots though!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Winchester391 Comfort and warmth. Best boots ever.
I got these late last Winter and I'm so happy with them I just had to write a review. I've had many Bean Boots and many other brands of work boots over the last 50 plus years but these surpass them all. They are so comfortable I often wear them when regular shoes would do but I want that cushy shearling feel.
The tumbled leather adds a lot of comfort. I actually wear them around the house almost like slippers on damp and drafty days. Until I tried these I never noticed the traditional leather is a bit stiff and can rub your ankles and your shins at the tops. The shearling is very soft and durable, and I've worn these a lot here in our cold and wet Kentucky weather so I feel confident in saying that. I did order the shearling footbed liners, which do not come with the boots and I would recommend you add them when you order. I usually wear a medium width but I ordered the wide to accommodate heavy socks and give myself lots of toe room. But they run true to size so don't feel you must order up unless you plan to wear heavy socks-and wear them inside like slippers too.

Rated 3 out of 5áby GauchoheartBearblood Sizing way off
I really wanted to like these boots. I ordered my normal size 8 W. The shoes came quickly. Unfortunately they were WAY too big and WAY too wide. I would like to re-order a regular (not W) size 7 but they are on back order until Feb 2015. I need them now. I wish they made them in more colors too.

These boots are great. There's a little extra room which is nice for if I want to wear thick socks. They aren't clunky at all. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mtnmama91 The entire family has a new pair!
Our entire family now has a new pair of Bean boots. Two with shearling and two with thinsulate. My youngest daughter (14) didn't think she wanted a pair until we went to a college football game and she "borrowed" mine for the frigid weather. Needless to say, she fell in love with them! So, these are my new Bean boots because she has now taken mine! Gotta love teenagers! We all love our new boots and wear them constantly - inside and out. They are a great investment. I only wish that LL Bean would consider branding them with monograms so we don't constantly get them mixed up. Please consider this LL Bean. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Chillyohio87 So comfortable!
I ordered these boots in a size 9 ( i am usually a 9.5-10) they fit perfectly! So comfortable that I was able to go for a 3 mile walk right after getting them out of the box. The leather is so smooth! They were supposed to be on back order and came early. Don't hesitate, just buy them, so worth the money.

I moved to New York last Christmas, and had no winter boots for when the chill came. So I started hunting for boots in September because I didn't want to be left in the cold again (...Polar Vortex, anyone?!).
I struggled with choosing between these and the Goretex, but chose Shearling because of the warmth factor and these were delightfully warm. They are still waterproof to some extent, but not as watertight as the Goretex boots, but if like me your feet are always cold, it may be worth considering Shearling, especially if you don't routinely schlep through piles of snow (the paths where I live are usually quite well salted/cleared).
Anyway I wear a size 8 (if the shoe runs particularly small, sometimes an 8.5) and chose to get the 7W/D as I found the 8B too big, and the 7B a little too snug. 7W is great, and I guess could be described as a 7.5. Pair them with the Cresta Heavyweight sock (Men's - because there aren't any in the ladies sock department) and I'm good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LUinPA Great Leather Boots
I purchased these boots for my daughter who is away at college. She just loves them and said that they are fantastic! She is a tough customer when it comes to boots, so if she likes them, that is enough to convince me. Great product!!!!
