Rated 1 out of 5 by BootlessInMpls Defective Boots...Two Months to Replace
I tried to submit a more thorough review of my experience with these boots, but I was told it couldn't be posted. Long story short, ordered my boots early so I would have them for winter. Got the boots when I expected...in time for late fall. One boot had a manufacturing defect where it was noticeably narrower than the other. Now I have to wait two more months for replacements.
The one boot that fits is very comfortable and warm. The lining covers the entire interior, and I am sure it will be great for normal winter wear. The height of the boot seems sufficient for most snow I will experience.
The other boot has very uneven seams where the leather meets the rubber. There is also some sort of adhesive on the leather.
Customer service was very helpful with this issue. I am getting a replacement pair, but I have to wait two months for them due to the back order situation. I hope to have them by February so I can use them this winter. I thought I was thinking ahead by ordering early, but I guess my planning and foresight was for naught due to this defect.
I would perhaps recommend ordering several sizes or even multiples of the same size all at once, so you can make sure you get a good pair that fit when you need them.

After debating between the regular Bean Boots or the Gore-tex I decided to go with the Gore-Tex simply because I could get them much faster. I typically wear an 11-11.5 regular in sneakers, loafers, and other boots. Many of the conflicting reviews made it difficult to pinpoint my size. I decided to size down and buy a 10 but I got a wide to provide more room. They still fit a little big, but it gives me room to layer up socks. I have probably 2-2.5 thumb lengths from my toe to the end of the boot. Overall I would buy the same size again.

The Bean boot has been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember... and you only ever need one pair. I'm buying them for my kids now that their feet have stopped growing.
My only wish is that LL Bean made more of them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TalllSlim Wide fit
I purchased a pair 12 N (narrow) a number of years ago and wore the occasionally. Last year when I wore them they again cramped my toes so since they were in good condition I gave them away. I usually wear a size 14 A so when I ordered a new pair I ordered a size 13 N (narrow). The length was right on but the width with heavy socks was too wide. My feet slid around and I could not lace them properly so they had to be returned. They evidently run very wide.

Love these boots, Im usually a 11.5 and heard the shoes ran small so I got a 12 wide. They were a little big so I took the shoes back to the store and they were exchanged for 11 wides very easily. Build quality is great and awesome customer service and warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justin14 Review of all three styles.
Through the process of ordering, returning, and exchanging, I've now owned all three styles of boots at one point or another. I recently just upgraded to the Gore-Tex lining.
Here are my points:
1. The regular boot without a lining isn't very warm at all. Even with wool socks, it gets very cold. It would probably be great for rainy seasons, but it won't provide any warmth.
2. The boots run very large. I wear a 12.5 running sneakers. I ordered an 11 in the regular boots, and they were GIGANTIC. I maybe had two inches of extra room. If you wear a half size and are ordering the regular boots, you may want to consider going the next two whole sizes down.
I then returned them for the thinsulate size 11. These were yet still too big. I was going to give up until I tried the gore-tex. Because of all the lining, i think it filled the shoe out. They are still a little too big, but I can deal with it.
3. If you wear a half size, chances are you are going to have to choose between a boot that is too small or too large.
4. The thinsulate doesn't cover the leather, it only covers the rubber bottom.
5. The gore-tex is great.
6. These boots are made of leather and rubber. Yes, they are great quality, but they don't exactly mold to your feet. Nonetheless, they are comfortable.
7. I'm very glad and proud I own these gore-tex boots despite the loose fit.
