Rated 2 out of 5áby obcorgi Disappointed. Not as described.
Seriously disappointed. Wow. Shearling lined to me means that the entire footbed and shaft should be shearling. That is my understanding of 'lined'. Not the case. The insoles and foot are not lined, only the shaft of the leg. Yeah, that's helpful for warmth. NOT. (Sarc) Really?? Save $50 and buy the other boot and wear a sock. You'll be better off. Will likely return them as they are prohibitively expensive and do not have value as there is not enough warmth in the foot itself, which to me, is the entire point of the upgrade to a shearling lining. They are oversized, but that is what one wants in a winter boot to give room betwen the toe and the weather. That part doesn't bother me, but 'as advertised' they are NOT.

Rated 4 out of 5áby lincolnville heel is too wide
These just arrived today and have to go back. I wear a 9.5 medium in regular shoes, I ordered a 9 in the Bean boot. The length was fine but the heal slips out completely. Otherwise, the support, comfort, the tumbled leather and the ease of a slip on are wonderful. I am kind of heartbroken because I really wanted a shearling slip on. Anyhow, I have now ordered the 8 inch lace up Bean boot which is backordered until early December. Please LL Bean, can we have a zipper or something so you don't have to deal with laces? I love your products but you have discontinued a lot of Bean boots in the past couple of years that had zippers or pull on features and the heel did not slip out. Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WinstonsMom Comfort right out of the box
I've been wearing these since I received them and kept asking myself why did you wait so long! Per the instructions I went down a size to a 7 and are a great fit right out of the box. Since they're an easy on/off boot I spend even more time outdoors, which my labs are even happier about! Now that the weather is turning cooler I swapped the insoles that came in the boot for the shearling insoles and I couldn't be happier. Thank you LLBean for these and whatever you do don't discontinue or change a thing!

Love the shearling. Love the slip on ease. LOVE the tumbled leather! A 6 fit which is also my sneaker size. Tried on with thin cotton socks. Didn't want to take them off! One boot does slip a bit in the heel but not a deal breaker. Thrilled! Will review again after a chance to wear them.

I have had these boots for about a year. I consistently wear a size 9 in boots from other brands and took everyone's advice and ordered a size 8. The length fits well, especially with thick socks; however, in agreement with other reviews these boots are very wide. They do have a tendency to flop around. With that said, I love the way they look and they are so easy to throw on and go. I have worn these camping, while running errands, and all day at school. Worth the purchase, but if you are fussy about a perfect fit they are not for you.

Rated 1 out of 5áby svnisus Wanted to Love Them
Read all the reviews and while I really wanted the same boot without the shearing, from everyone's comments plus what LL Bean said, I knew they would be too big. So, I went with the shearing style instead. Unfortunately they are too large also, especially in the heel.
I wanted a pair of boots I could just slip on and run out the door without having to think about what socks I'm wearing or if I'm even wearing socks.
Overall way too large without socks. They fit a bit better with LL Bean cotton socks and almost perfect with LL Bean wool socks, but even with the wool socks my heel still slips. I am a regular size 6 medium width and am surprised as to how large the heel is. I thought about keeping them but am afraid I'll end up with blisters.
I really want a pair of LL Bean boots but this is the second style I've had to return because they are too big. Can you please try making a size 5?

Rated 3 out of 5áby MichiganMom1996 Beautiful but won't stay on
I followed the recommendations from the site and even though I usually wear a size 9.5, I ordered a size 8. The length was surprisingly good and the boot is beautiful. The leather is soft and gorgeous. I wish I could give it 5 stars. The problem is that I could not keep it on my feet. The strap is decorative and I'm not sure if the boot is too wide (I do have narrow feet) in the heel or if the opening my foot goes through is too big. Either way, my foot moves around inside it when I walk. I was thinking of just trying to make it work but I unfortunately decided that might give me blisters so I had to send them back.

áby BirdDogAnne So glad this vintage style is back!
As a seller and buyer of quality vintage clothing, I have scoured ebay and Etsy for years looking for this particular style (which was discontinued years ago) in my size. My search has ended.
These arrived exactly on the estimated date, and are beautiful. The uppers are soft and need no breaking in, They do fit a little differently than my original lace ups as they're a little wider in the heel which I expected for a slip-on. As for size, I wear a 7-1/2 B and the 7 fits like a dream with athletic socks.
I was cursing the ground hog for extending our winter in the south but have been happy I have a new pair of boots to sport. I have received numerous compliments and am thrilled with my purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5áby sard Was So Excited to Receive These Boots...
however, they were a huge disappointment. I ordered the 7 Regular Width (exact same size I have ordered Bean lace-up Boots in the past). The length was fine, but they were so loose in the heel they would not stay on. It was kind of like walking in flip flops. Please note, I do not have narrow feet. I even order wides in some shoes/boots. I doubt the narrow size would work either because the boots were fine across the toes. Bummer! They are really cute, and the leather is so soft, but I had to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5áby evgeneia Like not love
I really like these boots, but don't quite love them. I've never been able to wear Bean boots because the stiff leather of the upper hurts and cuts into my ankles etc...
This leather is wonderful! Soft soft soft with no break in needed. LOVE that!
I ordered an 8W for my normally 9.5 somewhat wide foot. I prefer a wide in shoes, but more typically buy a normal width.
Anyway, I have a hard time getting these boots on and off. Is it my high arches? I don't know--but it's a bit of a struggle every time. Once on, they're pretty comfortable. Wish the wide was more of a true wide than the slightly wider than normal Bean boot (I find Bean boots narrow). I bought a pair for my sister who has normal feet, never takes a wide shoe. She wanted the wide after trying mine, and the wide fit her perfectly. Can't imagine the normal width?
I really really wish Bean made a lace up in the tumbled leather, un-lined, and without the tongue being sewn in....
