The fit is "as advertised", a little wider so that they accommodate a pair of medium-weight socks comfortably.
During this snowy winter, they kept my feet warm and dry through all the snow-blowing and shoveling hours. The sole is less clunky than my previous pair (non-LLBean); easier to walk in.
Hopefully, they will last for many winters to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sanbhu Superb winter boots!
I'm writing this as we're blown over by winter storm Juno. I wore this brand new pair of boots since morning, shoveled snow, went to work, worked through snow and blowing wind, came home and walked around the yard with deep snow, and then finally took them off after about 7+ hrs. My feet were as warm and dry as they were in the morning (one of the reasons I bought these pair was that my previous pair LL Bean boots were not good at keeping my feet dry and warm during snow; they were ankle length lace-up hiking boots, so I guess I can't blame them that much!#. I had thick woolen socks which may have helped too. The grip when walking on snow and ice was excellent - I was very pleased. It also seemed like they never got wet! So, a fantastic pair of winter waterproof boots!
I have only one complaint #not worth downgrading to a 4-star) - couldn't there be a better style rather than just looking like plain old winter boots? There must be a way to combine style and functionality, c'mon LL Bean - take the challenge!

My review is a little late as I hadn't worn my boots until this week.
I found them comfortable, good fit not cold enough to judge their warmth.On a whole nice boots well made.

I have worn these boots for 2 months and in various weather conditions and I can safely say they are great and well worth the investment. They keep your feet dry and warm (but not too warm), and the fit is spot on as I wear a 12M in everything and these are no exception. A very smart boot as well - the comfort and precise fit of sneakers with the warmth and waterproof qualities of rubber. I so far have worn them in 40F weather down to around 10F and they work in both temps as the fit and lacing accommodate different sock thicknesses. The price was steeper than I would usually pay but I have found that the quality difference between these and even an $90 pair of boots is immediately apparent; well worth the extra initial cost as I'm sure these will last for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBLovers I Love These Boots
I have been searching for the right winter boots for the past couple of years. I'm happy to say that my search is now over!
These boots are surprisingly comfortable and very warm. They do not feel heavy like other winter boots but they certainly do keep my feet warm.
They are roomy on the inside so I don't think I could wear them with lightweight socks, but they fit fine with midweight socks. I have not work them with heavyweight socks yet but I think the roomy toebox will accommodate them.

My order was received within 72 hours of order. Product fits well and appears to be made to LL Bean qua;ity standards. This item is produced in Vietnam and not Maine like the original boots were.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rodmaker1 Good foul weather boot
To arm myself for the upcoming NY/NJ winter, I recently ordered a pair of Storm Chaser lace-up boots. LL Bean's standard delivery was speedy! The boots are very well made. The fit is good, but a little tight with thick socks, probably because of the boot's insulation layer. (Consider ordering one size larger than street shoe size, if you prefer to wear heavy wool socks with the boots.)
The rubber portion of the uppers is flexible, and will not offer the same protection as a full-leather upper. (It's not a work-boot, nor is it advertised as one.) Rather, the boot is perfect for fun in the winter, shoveling snow or walking about in cold, wet weather. The Storm Chaser boots are sturdy, comfortable, waterproof and a great choice for winter wear in the Northeast USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by poseypat Nice boot
The Stormchaser boot is a very nice looking boot. I am a woman but I ordered a men's size so it would be wide enough. I have bought a men's shoe size 8 in the past, but this boot was iffy in size when I got it. My toes were right at the end. I sent them back. I said I would not recommend these boots to a friend not because of the quality of the boot. They were beautiful. But it is a hassle getting shoes or boots online that fit.
