Rated 5 out of 5 by mejacob8 Listen to the sizing chart!
I was very apprehensive on going with the recommended size. I usually wear a 9 and could never fit into an 8 in any other shoe. However I decided to order down and they fit perfect!! Theres plenty of room for thicker socks. The boots are so well made and came in the mail super fast! Cannot wait to get some more use out of them during winter!

I was honestly very scared that I would size wrong when ordering but I followed the guidelines and sized down from my normal 10 to a 9 and they fit perfectly. They are comfortable with a thin sock but there is room for thicker socks as temperatures drop. The leather is a bit stiff out of the box but the quality of the leather and the excellent craftsmanship make me believe they will age well. I see many seasons of unpredictable Canadian weather ahead for these boots. I'm glad to find a boot that shows pride in quality but is still classic. If all LLBean products follow this standard I will be ordering again and again.

I LOVE my Bean Boots! I ordered the black/black pair. I am a true 8.5 and ordered a size 8. I wear these with my Bean Boot Socks that are super thick. Follow ordering instructions regarding size, depending on what type of sock you wish to wear these with. These keep me warm and dry all winter and spring! I didn't buy them for the look, but the black on black is quite stylish. These are super-comfortable as well. I would re-purchase, but after wearing them almost daily all winter, I they hardly show any wear! FYI: Order early because they sell out by Thanksgiving and you won't get them till April when you don't need them anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ForeverLLBoots Great boot! Shipped fast, Great quality.
This is overall a great buy. At first the leather is pretty tough. It takes some time to break in, but once it softens, it's the most comfortable winter/rain shoe you'll ever buy! It is also a little difficult to get into at first, but that changes over time as well. I honestly love my tan/navy bean boots. The navy appears a true navy color in direct sunshine, but otherwise, it looks more black or a very dark navy.

by WVUgirl1 Great!!!
These are my first pair of Bean Boots. After tons of research and reading countless reviews I decided to buy them. I got the all black 8" boots. I normally wear a size 7 in all shoes and I went with a 7 in these because I plan on wearing thick socks with them. Without thick socks I definitely have some wiggle room, but with thick socks they fit perfect! So glad I decided to get them! I can't wait for winter!!

A little larger than I expected. When I wear thick socks they are only about a half size too big. Great shoe though. Can't wait to wear them!

I always take a size 8-1/2 M in shoes and ordered the 7. I was in the store shopping and my boots had not arrived yet. I saw the 7 in another color and thought to myself how they looked way too small. I thought since I followed the recommendation online that my boots enroute to my home were bigger than what I saw. They arrived and before even trying them on I knew they were too small. Just like the ones in the store. So my pair was not a fluke. Both were like that. In bare feet my toes touched the end. It is summer now. If you are a half size you will definitely want to go down only 1/2 size and wear thick socks. Both pairs, the one in store and ones shipped were the same fit. I returned and reordered quickly the same day to make sure I got the color I wanted before they are gone. Wish I could order these in several colors. OH forgot -- the tongue is sewed completely on both sides all the way up. So instead of laying flat underneath the laces, it adds another layer of leather under both sides of the lace. Look at the pictures online to see the birds-eye view to see what I'm talking about. Was told that at colleges (Universities) these are all the rage. Get your favorite color before you regret it. Don't wait for the cold weather to get here. The boot I would say 4 stars because of the strange way the tongue is sewn up and the fit rec is off but the boot is great otherwise. Just doesn't make sense on that tongue. Maybe it keeps snow out?

Ordered these after needing a pair of fishing shoes/cold weather snow shoes. They are perfect. I ordered a size 9, erring against the guidelines provided. And the boots fit perfectly, and are so comfortable. Also arrived quicker than expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LindyLou Disappointed
I waited for these red boots - the sizing information "To wear with light or midweight socks: If you wear a whole size, order one size down from your normal size. If you wear a half size, order one and a half sizes down." was very misleading -
I wear a 7 1/2 but erred on the side of ordering a 7 rather than a size 6 1/2 or a 6! The leather of the tongue was so stiff that it wouldn't lie flat around my ankle and leg, and my toes were at the end of the boot WITHOUT socks. So all in all, not a good buy for me. They have been returned. I wish they had fit but.........

These boots are even more gorgeous in person. I put them on straight out of the box. I ordered the red ones! I did order the size 7 as directed. I always order an 8 in all shoes and boots from LLBEAN. I wear a mid weight sock and have plenty of toe room. These boots are so comfortable!!!! You won't be disappointed.
