Rated 5 out of 5 by PToes Better than I reviewed; just right
After weighing all the pros and cons I purchased the womens Black slip-on Storm Chaser. Was concerned about the "heel slippage" reports. First is a good looking shoe and tough. Yes there is some slippage but the upper part of the heel near the ankle keeps the slippage to a minimum. Could it be tighter yes. I plan to buy another pair. Usually I wear a 7.5 but bought an 8 in case I need "sock" room. With thick socks these fit snug and I am happy. Without socks = loose. Purpose was for inside/outside winter use; so far very pleased. Future use to get them dirty. Today I look good in them. HA. Hope this is helpful to others. Back tag on shoe is great for pull-on.

I would have liked to keep these boots, but I have a somewhat narrow heel, and the heel on these kept slipping. The length and feel were great, but I am going to return them and buy lace-up shoes because I can't go around with my heel slipping all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SundayRiver2u2 Love at first slip on
These shoes are terrific! I loved them as soon as I put them on. I wore them for a few hours around the house before even thinking of taking them off. I sometimes wear a 7 but lately have needed 7.5 so that's what I ordered and I'm glad they're not any roomier.
They are more akin to short boots than sneakers and not something to wear in the summer (or to run in as someone mentioned) but they're perfect for doing errands on rainy and snowy days nine months of the year.
I have very narrow heels so I was concerned about the reviews, but they fit fine, but of course shoes are very subjective. I found them just perfect for my purposes. Hopefully you will too.

Not the most comfortable but fit their purpose. These are essentially cut off boots. The heel space is roomy but not enough to slip off or be a problem The toe space is narrower than expected. I'm hoping they'll mold to my feet but not much arch support and some foot cramping is happening. I usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9 and bought a size 9.
They're warm and dry and will be ok - just not great. Imagine they're a lace up boot - not a running shoe. They're great in the rain, good tread, and not slippery like the old bean boots. I expect them to be warm enough in the snow when running errands or going from the vehicle to inside or after ski boots.

I live in an Alaskan town that has only one paved road. This means a lot of walking through puddles, mud, and slush around town while shopping or going to the post office. These waterproof Storm Chaser shoes are my go-to footwear choice most of the time. Easy to slip into and out of and easy to clean. Not that I've cleaned them in months --- I just knock the dirt and mud off. Perfect for walking the dog. I even wear them when there is a light snowfall and my feet stay warm. They have a good grip on the snow. I've slipped into them barefoot to go out and fill the bird-feeder, but usually wear a light to medium-weight (for cold weather) sock. No break-in period required as they were comfortable from the first day. Love love love these shoes. Don't ever stop making them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyGirl Perfect for Wide Gardener
I bought these last spring to wear in the garden and while walking my dog in the woods. Since I have wide feet, they fit me perfectly, while giving me excellent support during hours on my feet and good traction in the rain. So far I am totally satisfied!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bristol53104 Disappointed
I should have listened to the reviewers on this site who stated that the heel slips on these Storm Chaser shoes. This shoe is very wide in the heel. I ordered an 8 and my toes came to the front of the shoe, so a smaller size would not correct this problem. Beautiful shoe, but there are definitely issues with the heel width. I do not think that LL Bean should charge $6.50 for return shipping when clearly there is a problem with the heel width.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ecg1 Wish these came in smaller sizes!
I'm very disappointed that Beans doesn't make a women's size smaller than a 6. I want to love these, but they run very large and my feet are sliding around every which way in them, even with my thickest socks. I usually wear a 6, occasionally a 5.5. Order a size down if you can! I really wish I could.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Traveler5315 Disappointed
Oh how I wanted these shoes to work! They are very nicely made, attractive, but they are huge in the heel. Huge. They are fine in length but the heels slip up and down a lot with each step which makes them very annoying to wear and not supportive. LL Bean please fix this!! I will order a pair as soon as you do!
