Rated 2 out of 5 by Donthewriter Poor quality
I have never badmouthed any of my Bean boots or other Bean products, but this boot dictates that I make an exception.
Although I have worn the Storm boot infrequently in the several years I have owned it, there are two issued I can't ignore.
1) No matter what color or kind of socks I wear, my relatively light foot perspiration produces a distinct, offensive odor. My guess is, it comes from the boot leather or dye used in the inner sole. I have never had any shoe or boot smell like this one does.
2 Although I wear these, as I say, infrequently, and as a hiker, not as a construction worker or any other outdoor worker, the seam near the eyelets has popped open. Making this anything but a waterproof boot.
Won't take a chance on these again, especially after paying over $100 for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shafenator Perfect for Snowblowing
Bought these because my old worn snow boots finally bought the bullet. I am very glad I picked these boots especially since they have a lifetime warranty so I will never need to buy another pair of snow boots again!
I used these mainly to walk the dog in the snow and snowblow/shovel. They kept my feet dry and warm. They also don't make my feet sweat when its 40 degrees outside which is good.
Fitment is good, their sizes seem to be right on par. I normally wear a US 11.0 but I had to buy a 10.5 since they were out of 11.0. They fit a little snug which I expected but they are fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Budman57 Money well spent.
Just spent the better part of 7hrs of digging out from the blizzard of 2016, and these boots did not disappoint. Just had a good pair of wool socks ( from your collection) and my feet were kept dry and toasty warm throughout. I bought these boots with this type of weather in mind and was not disappointed. Again money well spent and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by palotz53 So Far the best boot I have ever owned.
I just used these for the first time on Long Island, NY during the Blizzard of 2016. Feet stayed warm and dry with just medium weight socks. They fit as expected, more like a sneaker than a boot. I highly recommend them so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by redbear81 These Boots Are Fantastic
I live in New England, and bought these boots for use during cold/snow disc golf rounds. I've been wearing them for about 2 months at this point, and have tested them in all the weather I'd ever need to wear them them.
I can't really find anything wrong with them. They are dry, comfortable, and keep my feet nice and warm, even on super cold days. I normally wear a size 10. I ordered 10.5 to accommodate for thicker winter socks. Works pretty well. I probably should have ordered 10s, but can't really fault LL Bean for that. Regardless, I'm a big fan and will absolutely recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SKIWUDS Too narrow
Good boot, BUT not designed for the average foot. Too Narrow and short. Lately all shoes don't meet up to the general foot sizing devices in shoe stores. LL Beans attention to sizing when designing this shoe was lacking in width and length. This lack of attention to detail has become more of a trend and many items end up as sale items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bperry Not warm enough
I bought these boots for hunting. Both my feet have developed bad placec on my instep which can be quite painful when walking. These boots have enough padding so that walking is not to bad as they fit fine and feel good on. But the main reason I bought them is for their ability to keep my feet warn in cold weather. Now I'm not sure if I understant the raitating system on their insulation ability but I used them in 41 degree weather and in 31 degree weather. First sitting in a deer stand the next time in a tent like blind and both tiimes after an hour or so felt like my feet were incased in ice. Even better socks did not help so in that respect I am very disapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by obdc Love these Boots!
I have had my second pair of these boots now for a few months. I did not think they could get any better, but they are! They are So comfortable, so warm, waterproof to the highest degree.
I also bought a pair of "trail boots" and they are not nearly as comfortable and waterproof - "not so much." I can't recommend them
I definitely recommend LL Bean! Bought another pair of boots last year because they were out of the storm chasers, and they did not last. They have since discontinued that boot. They cheerfully refunded my money on them. A good company to buy from!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timother Excellent Service
As someone who does the majority of my shopping online I have to say I'm very impressed with LL Bean's service. I ordered a pair of pants and boots on Friday, they were shipped Saturday Morning and arrived my midday on Monday and the shipping is free! Very impressive. Not to mention, the boots and pants were exactly as described. The boots are very comfy. My feet are wide enough that I've had a lot of issues with shoes being narrow but these fit me fine. Not a lot of space on the sides but my my feet don't hurt wearing them which is better than most shoes I have. Great products and great service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by deadrocked The best of the best
Over the years, I've had numerous LL Beans boots, whether they were unlined or lined. These boots with the added support by the way the leather layering is stiched in from the heel to mid sole adds support while being very comfortable. The tread pattern unlike the old Beans boots adds stability in all conditions while remaining very comfortable. The lining for those colder weather treks is so much better than the regular lining on other boots while also being very comfortable. As you can tell, these are by far the most comfortable cold weather boots that I have ever owned. Please note that I have worn these boots in 80 degree weather and with the breathability, they were still a perfect boot to wear. These boots will be my go to boots year round. Also, my Christmas shopping for some of my family just got a lot easier, STORM CHASERS will be under several tree's this year.
