Rated 5 out of 5 by Missthebeach Husband loves them!
This is his 3rd pair. The only issue he had was the material at the heel comes apart but LL Bean exchanged them for another brand new pair after 2 years for free. His 3rd pair had one stolen by a dog and he missed them terribly so we just reordered. He uses them for working out in the yard , we live on a river and they keep his feet warm and dry and are very durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheBelovedSarge Size Issues
This would be the perfect shoe for me, if I could get the right fit. I have a pair of the Comfort Mocs so I ordered the same size as those. Way too tight in the toes(length and width). I ordered a full size up and the length was ok for the toes, but was still too narrow for my toes, and my heels slipped out when walking. I'm totally disappointed. If they were available in different widths, I think I could get the right fit.

I tried two different sizes of this shoe and both were too large. I normally take a size 10D which is the last shoe I tried and they were so loose on my feet it caused my gait to change which in turn made my knees hurt. I liked the quality of the product but they just wouldn't work with my body configuration!

1> My heel slips on both sides.>My right top bridge is so loose my foot rocks left to right>The toes turn upward and will bother me in the ball of my feet.>
Don't get me wrong..This is a beautiful shoe,if it fits. >I tried to get used to it but it just kept getting worse >.I used LL Bean boot socks to see if it would help.
I wish there was a local store to try on these boots because they will last you a lifetime.
Sending back,with sadness.

I'm 61 and for the first time in my life I can go out in some pretty cold weather and my feet stay warm. I bought these about 2 years ago and I couldn't be happier. I'm an avid metal detectorist and spend hours out metal detecting. These shoes always keep my feet warm when others are fleeing inside. Can't say enough about them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheRustinator Heel Slips
I read the reviews with some buyers noting their heel slips up and down while walking in the shoe, but decided to go ahead and give them a try hoping the manufacturer had improved the fit. To my disappointment it still holds true even when I put on thick socks. The size 10.5 was an exact fit but the heel problem spoiled an otherwise well made and good looking product. Will be sending them back and continue to use my tried but true L.L. Bean Gumshoe Boot (substituted the original laces with elastic ones making it easy to slip on and off).

Rated 1 out of 5 by SartorialSavvy1 A Rare Miss
I am a dyed-in-the-wool L.L. Bean customer. But, on this occasion, I have to give a definitive thumbs down.
The sizes run quite small, and I had to return my original 10.5 order for an 11, which barely fit for length. And an 11 not being long enough has never happened to me before. But, more to the point (both figuratively and literally), I have narrow feet, and take a medium (M) width whenever possible. D has always been listed as wide, so I was surprised to see D described as a medium width. Still, I thought it wouldn't be too sloppy. To my surprise, the shoes were almost painfully tight in the toes, squeezing them together, yet disproportionately too wide - preposterously so- at the heel. They feel like a clunky, heavy pair of flip flops. That pinch.
The only reason I didn't fill in the fit portion of the review (narrow or wide fitting) was that, somehow, they were both. (?)
I am curious about their waterproof dress shoe, but based on this experience, I am extremely hesitant to order them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clint1977 Nice pair storm chasers
first let start by saying I always read reviews before I buy anything, I read the reviews about the storm chasers fitting too tight and some with running big and heel slipping out, so I was confused after all the reviews, if there was a problem LL Bean read the reviews and fixed the problem because they fit TRUE TO SIZE I take a 10 ordered a 10 and fit perfect with regular socks, if want to wear thick socks go up size.... hopes this helps the rest of you about to buy these shoes they are the best you can buy. Love them for the north east. Great traction and really warm when out plowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bardaman excellent value
I love these boots. Easy to slip on and off. Completely waterproof. Conformed to my feet in no time at all. Plus I love the way they look. I would say they are my favorite shoe anytime the weather turns cool and damp. I took them with me to Ireland and they were indispensable.
