by Bummer4BeanBoots Heavily flawed, very disappointed
What a disappointment. Ordered, like everyone, Bean Boots the very first day of December. Just received. Loose threads throughout both right and left boot, glue on back of left boot along with rub/worn marks on darling Bean Boot label on each heel. Where the two ends meet (just below last loop hole) on right side/exterior, hangs over on to rubber. Also, rub marks all over exterior of brown rubber. Very difficult to believe hand-crafted by experts. Couldn't believe my eyes, how disappointed my daughter will be as well. : (

Rated 5 out of 5 Warm - winter must have.
I was looking for boots that would replace the ones I've had to buy on an annual basis - cheaper isn't always better. So I decided to ask for these for Christmas. I've not been disappointed. The warmth from the sheep's shearling is so incredibly warm and extremely helpful to have in the subzero temps. The outer lower section is durable, waterproof and gives me peace of mind when walking through thick snow or walking on ice. These boots are a great investment in something completely worth their money in durability, reliability and warmth.
Plus: customer services is A++++

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogged1 Works for me
I bought these because I am constantly outside in mud, snow,wind and cold rain. Thanks to Bean's satisfaction guarantee, I got them in exchange for the Gortex - lined Bean boots which were very stiff. I thought I would need to break these in, but the tumbled leather was so flexible, I was comfortable from the start. The boots are very warm and sturdy, but you can still run in them or climb a hill. The bottom part is waterprooof. The shearling is not on the footbed, but you can wear Bean sox to cover. These are a good investment.

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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kleinhah Great fit
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 5 by 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!
