Rated 5 out of 5 by chicgal Great waterproof shoes for our wet summer!
I bought these for my son who is working as a counselor at a camp in northern Minnesota. He loves them. They are perfect because they keep his feet dry and because he can run in them-a requirement for all counselors. They do run large. He is a size 15, but the 14's fit him well. I predict he will have these for many years.

The first pair of LLBean footwear I've purchased, and they are great. I wear a size 11 in most running shoes, and 10.5 in boots. I ordered a size 10 based on the suggestions and they fit great. I use them for work where my feet used to get wet. Not anymore.
Happy to buy a product made in the USA! I plan on buying a 12" pair of boots in the same style for hunting and riding atvs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaPopeye IF YOU WANT THEM ... BUY THEM!
I have wanted to try these boots / shoes for a LONG time. I finally broke down and ordered them and they are FANTASTIC. Recommendations concerning what size to order are accurate - follow their instructions. I got mine for yard work and to use as Boat Shoes ... couldn't be better. I leave mine laced loose so I can just slip them on and off ... but if I'm going to do some heavy work, they can be laced tight. WELL Worth the price! Free shipping is great! I'm VERY satisfied on all accounts ... thanks for a GREAT USA MADE PRODUCT!!!
I also have a pair of L.L. Bean Boots that I inherited from my father ... I finally retired them after (probably) over 50 years and bought a new pair in addition to these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VTBobC True Bean quality!
As with all of my L.L.Bean purchases, these boots reflect excellent quality. I expect them to be around for a long time. Have an insulated version of the this Gumshoe which I have worn for years during winters in VT. If possible, best to try them on before purchase as they run a bit large. Am a 79 year old widower who buys almost all of his clothes and many other items from L.L.Bean - never been disappointed. FYI: don't own stock in the company, have never worked for them; had a long career in procurement and recognize an excellent source.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shod55 Boots for summer work
Bought these for summer work as winter shoes too heavy. They have proved to be an excellent choice so far. Pay attention to sizing recommendations as I wear a solid 10 and bought size 9 as directed. Fit is great even with thin socks although a heavier sock is more comfortable. I am hard on shoes for work and curious to see how these hold up over time.

The shoe is very comfortable and dry (on the inside) on wet grounds.
I wear a size 10, medium to wide length. The size for this LLBean shoe that I now wear is 9 wide. Fits like a glove (shoe). Suggest using Bean's shoe size guide to help make your selection. Initially, I ordered a 10, but was far too big and returned it for a replacement.

My original pair finally wore through the sole. Considering I used them for more than twenty years, I'd say that they were very durable and well made.

This is my third pair, love them. Bean says to order a size down if you don't wear thick socks. Florida I don't, but 10M to 9M doesn't work. I think ordering 9W would be a better fit, I can barely get my foot in a 9M!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BartDromedary Classic shoe for mud season
Just replaced my LL Bean rubber shoes after 15 years of use. As I get older my feet got bigger..otherwise, would still be using the old pair.
Great for the New Hampshire mud season; light weight, keeps feet dry, and easily sheds muck and mud.
Only minor problem: my right foot has a "double angle", that is the bone protrudes and was irritated by contact with the upper on the inside of my shoe. Easily remedied with a small piece of foam rubber covered by 2" oval of light weight leather contact cemented to the offending spot. Bingo!
Fantastic fit, great outdoor shoe. If I live long enough I'll buy another pair in 15 yrs.

Originally tried these on at the Bean store in South Windsor, CT; salesperson clued me in that sizes ran big, which was helpful. I initially balked because of price, spent the next two weeks scouring other stores in Connecticut, but cheaper knockoffs elsewhere just couldn't match the fit or comfort. Dashed back to South Windsor to find they were now out of my size, and salesperson said they wouldn't be getting any more for the foreseeable future (?) Went online, ordered them and was given a ship date of April 22nd. Pleasantly surprised when they arrived 3 weeks early! Couldn't be happier - I'm sure I'll get many years of use out of these boots, just as I have from my very comfortable L.L.Bean Rangeley mocs.
