Rated 2 out of 5 by WRGIT Very difficult to walk in
I loved the color, construction was top of the line as expected from LLBean. Ordered an 8 even though I usually do 81/2 and that was fine. I just was very disappointed in the utility of the boot. The insert made the boot and consequently my leg look "fat". It bulged at my ankle. The kicker was the difficulty I had in walking around. I had them laced pretty snugly to try and make them look thinner and that resulted in an inability to walk normally. I felt like I was wearing one of those walking casts. Walking down my stairs I actually started to trip and that made my mind up....time to send em back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Illini2005 Great Boot
This boot was everything I wanted it to be. First and foremost, the quality of the boot is fantastic. Its fit was true to size. They are warm, comfortable, and seem durable. I haven't gotten to use them in snow yet, just rain, but they've kept my feet warm and dry. I've very pleased with this product.

Customer service let me know this boot is not to be worn without the insert. The insert is removable to be cleaned, only. Hope this info helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samata Awesome!
I absolutely love my all-weather boots. They are super comfortable and warm. At first when I was wanting to order them I didn't know what size I would need since I ususally wear a 7 1/2. If the shoe runs small then I would get an 8, and if it runs big then 7. I noticed there were reviews on women who wore 7 and they ordered a 6. Personally I was a bit skeptical on getting that small of a size so I went ahead and got size 7. When I first got my boots they were somewhat tight through the ankle area, however the toe space was perfect (also I have room to wear thicker socks if I choose to). So I took a couple days and wore them in the house to see how the feel was and if they would losen up a bit. Well in the end they did losen up around the ankles and I still have the space I need for my toes. They fit snug but it's not an overbearing snug and they're just amazing and glad I made the purchase. So if you're one of those people who float in the middle of sizes (like me) I would suggest to go down just a 1/2 of a size. Hope my review is helpful!! :) also shipping was pretty fast!!

by BeanieBaby23 Great Product, But Not For Me
I just received this item and it shipped quick. I have been eyeing Bean Boots for months, but all of them have a ridiculous back order date. These became available so I decided to order them.
I could smell the leather before I even got the box all the way open, so I was very excited to see what these looked like in person. When I got them out of the box, my first reaction was how pretty they were! LOVE the colors on this boot. However, they looked really big, almost like moon boots. I tried them on, and sadly, they were way too clunky for me. They also seemed slightly big. I ordered a 7 and normally wear a 7 or 7.5. but I was wearing thin socks and didn't bother breaking out my thick socks because I already had my mind made up that I didn't like the style. They seemed stiff. The outside almost makes a cracking sound when slightly bent (kind of like when you bend lightweight cardboard). The part that covers the toe that is similar to the "duck boots" look is not made of rubber, like I thought it would be. It is made of the same leather material as the rest of the boot. On the upside, these are VERY comfortable and warm. I'm giving these boots 4 stars because I recommend them as great quality boots, but I didn't care for the style so I will be returning them. If you are looking for a large heavy duty boot that appear as if they will last a LONG time then this boot is for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EMMS These are very cool looking and are nice and warm!
These boots do run large - so I recommend a size smaller than your normal size. Love them!

Rated 3 out of 5 Inserts Change the Size
The boots themselves are great quality, good fit, comfortable, and would be perfect except for one thing. If you remove the removable insulating inserts, the size of the shoe completely changes to the extent that an extra pair of socks will not fix. These would be great snowboots, but in a humid spring rainstorm not so great.

I expected these would be slim and somewhat fashionable given the description, but they're incredibly clunky. I wear a 7.5 and ordered the 7, and it was still at least a size too big with thick socks. The boot itself is huge and extremely wide; even with the insert ( which goes all the way around the foot) removed, it's like wearing a large snowboard boot. With the laces tightened all the way, I still had a few inches of room around the entire shaft and foot. I returned them as I was looking for something versatile for intense winters that I can easily walk in. Bummer because they look lovely on the website. If you're looking for an extremely warm, hefty boot to slog through major snow, these would be great. Order a size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewEnglandHabitant Extremely pleased with this product
I was worried at first about which size to pick because i wear a 6 1/2 and there are only whole numbers as sizes. I called customer service to ask their opinion and they suggested that if I'm going to wear "thick" socks i should buy an 8!! I was very suspicious because i don't think id be wearing socks so thick that i literally need an entire empty space in my shoe, so against customer service's best judgment I decided to buy a 6.
They arrived 2 days after I ordered them, which was awesome! And I was so happy i decided to pick a 6 because they definitely run a little big, just a little though. But they fit like a charm!
I was nicely surprised too because they are very supportive on the sides of the ankle. They are extremely warm and super comfortable!!!!
And my advice for sizing is that unless you're wearing socks inches thick get the smaller of the half size that you wear.
I definitely recommend them!!!!!!
