Rated 5 out of 5 by GabbieM GET. THESE. BOOTS.
I was originally hesitant to buy these boots because it's a hefty price tag for a college student's budget, but I had heard so many good things about them I decided to go for it. And man were they worth it. As soon as I opened the box I knew these boots were of the highest quality. The leather is so soft so no break in was required. And the shearling lining is unbelievably soft and comfortable. I go to school in upstate New York and it's damp and cold and snowy for the majority of the year so these will be perfect. This is the first time I can actually say I'm excited for the winter, just because I want to wear my boots! The lifetime guarantee is just another big plus. I would definitely recommend these boots and I think the tumbled leather and shearling lining are a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanderlust2012 So far so good! Order your normal size!
I bought these boots for grad school in the mountains. I normally wear a size 8, so I ordered down a size because so many people said they ran large. The size 7 fit, but it was very tight and I couldn't even wear thin socks with them. I exchanged them for a size 8 and they fit great with thin or medium socks. These shoes come with a small foot insert. I bought the Shearling Insoles from LL Bean (the wool shoe insert), took out the original insert, and put the shearling lined one in and it fits okay with the size 8. If you are planning to buy the shearling lined foot insert, at least order your normal size if not a size bigger! Now I can change out the normal insert or wool insert depending on how cold it is. Very pleased with how quickly my boots were exchanged and the quality seems great. Can't wait for winter!

Just ordered them three days ago and they fit perfectly. I wear a size 11 and went down to a size 10 and ordered the width wide d. Fits wonderfully with a regular sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lenoun Absolutely love it
I am going to Chicago and NY in December and since I live in CA I had to purchase boots for the trip. I know few people who purchased their boots from LL Bean and was told if I were to wait til the last minute, they will be on backorder and might get them in time for the trip. I listened and ordered a pair. The reviews posted previously were very helpful. I went a full size down (I am usually a 7 and bought size 6). The boots fits perfectly. They are very well made. The quality is great and will very likely last a very long time. I definitely recommend this pair. Can't wait to wear down the streets of NY and Chicago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShopTillYouDrop44 A Very Wonderful Graduation Gift
My parents bought these boots for me as a graduation gift and I couldn't be happier! I love them and they fit perfectly. I am an 8 and I ordered a 7 and they are great. I will be attending college in Connecticut next year and know that these will be the perfect boot in the cold months of winter. Great product and stylish snow boot! Will order again for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovinNewEngland AWESOME Boots!
Glad I splurged on these, the shearling lining and the tumbled leather are fabulous!!! These boots go on backorder when the winter weather casts it's dark shadow over New England so getting the size right when they are readily available was good move. As others have mentioned, these run large. I am usually an 8.5 and ended up settling into a 7 wide, they fit perfect with a mid to heavy weight wool sock. Not that I am looking forward to winter (especially after the last one) but I AM looking forward to wearing these when it does arrive.
As always, can't give LLB enough kudos for their customer service, wonderful company to deal with!

Beautiful, beautiful and comfortable shoes. Usually a 7.5 - ordered a 6 and they fit perfectly (snug, hug my feet, with a little wear should be great with thick socks).

Rated 5 out of 5 by dev2002 these boots are STUNNING. buy them now!!!!
These are the nicest, most comfortable Bean boots I have ever owned. The leather is luxuriously soft and supple with real lambswool shearling lining. Quality is just superb and I LOVE the fact that these are made not only in the USA, but right here in New England. Fit is perfect when you go by LLB's sizing recommendation for Bean Boots--I normally wear a size 8 in a shoe, but ordered a size 7 and they fit perfectly with my mid-weight smartwool boot socks. And they are also felt ridiculously comfy right out of the box. Had to wait 3 months to get them because they were backordered--which just shows you how popular they are, and now I know why. After this wretched winter, I at least have these brand new, good-looking boots to wear come fall! I wouldn't think twice about buying these again, and I highly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mrsargento see below,warm
the boot was very well made. for me there were sharpe edges on edge of tongue at bottom where it joins the inside . they were just to heavy for me and maybe to wide. i thought i would try this type of boot but it did not work out. thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by mall90 Worth the Wait!!
I ordered these boots awhile ago, and they just came because they were on back order. They were well worth the wait!! They are so soft and warm. They do run about a size large, but I also ordered the additional shearling insole and they fit great! Wonderful boot!
