Functionally the boot is fine and fits well. Assembly of the upper to the lower is sloppy and probably should have been a blem second.

I liked the boots. The quality and craftsmanship are great and in line of LLBeans name. However, I found the boots difficult to put on and take off. I'm Usually a size 8 1/2 and purchased a size down and the boots fit with a pair of cotton socks (not thick). They were comfortable, however they did not keep my feet warm. Unfortunately after a long wait To receive (was on back order) I don't think its a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pxglo Great boots!
I really like these boots. The leather is soft and repels water. The boot is very lightweight and looks just like the photo. I purchased the size 6 and normally wear a 6.5. It fits perfectly with my mid-weight trail socks. The red sole is so cute and practical.
These boots were worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brooklyn15 comfortable and waterproof
I love these boots.
I have a BIG FOOT and they look very cutesy wootsy !!!
During cold days, I need to wear a good thermal sock or my toes will get cold.
Completely waterproof and height is just right, not too high and not too short.

Absolutely love them. I am usually 9.5-10 shoe size and I got an 8 and they fit perfect. They are not that warm but my feet sweat so they are perfect for my feet to not get too hot. I also wear thin socks so if you wear thick ones they might be warmer. Cannot say enough great things about them! And lifetime warranty if they get ruined which they probably won't because they are so well made. I mean if you are going to spend the money buy something high quality like these

Like others, I waited months for these boots as they were backordered since before the holidays. Well-worth the wait- the boots have a distressed look with the bison leather and the brick red sole makes them even more unique. I love the handcrafted look and feel. I do not do a lot of field and stream activities and no barn work at the moment as I live in urban LA so these were more for mildly inclement weather and a fashion statement for me. They are well-made and have that handcrafted look LLB is known for. They do not disappoint.
In terms of sizing, they are like other LLB boots in that they do run long and wide. Order at least half a size smaller than your regular size. I have a narrow foot but with a heavy sock and the lace-up, they are fine. Oh, you get 2 sets of laces in case you want dark vs. light color laces showing or to have a spare.
Only question is, how long before they sell out once again? I would not wait to order if you are considering buying. I understand LLB boots are the uniform on most college campuses.

I was greatly disappointed that my order was back-ordered for "3 months" but when my boots arrived and I opened my package I was greatly IMPRESSED AND SATISFIED!!! The great quality of the boot ( the material and the sewing). The colors displayed exactly what I was expecting from the online catalog. Also, let's talk about the comfort of the boot, it is remarkable. I am a nurse so I know what it means to have a comfortable shoe! Well, I am closing but want to say that I now wish it would rain more or we would have more cold weather so I can wear my L.L. Bean Boots.
Thank you! L.L. Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackiesunshine Best boots ever!
I got a pair last year and LIVED in them .... Working in the yard, walking trails, walking the dog in the rain ... And yes, even slept in them a few times. When my daughter was home from college, she wore them .... And in order to keep my pair, I ordered her a pair for Christmas. They were back ordered at that time and she received them recently. Sent me a picture of her wearing them with the text "LOVE"! They get even more comfortable and softer each day! Highly recommend!! Oh, and they also look cute as a fashion statement with leggings, jeans, skirts, etc!! I wear a 6 1/2 or 7N shoe and ordered the 6. My daughter wears a size 7 1/2 and I ordered her a 7.

I just got these boots in the mail the other day and they came just in time before the snow. I am a true size 8 everywhere and I ordered a size 7 in the boots and they are a great fit. Definitely if you are thinking about ordering these I would jump on it. They are super comfortable and I wear them with everything!

by AuntieMJ Bean Boots 8" Bison, dark brown/brick red
Ordered bison, red brick boots December 11, 2014 & received them today, February 26, 2015 & first impression is AWESOME & LOVE! I'm so excited to finally have them home!
I wear size 10 in boots/shoes & ordered these in size 9. Fit is perfect, comfortable & doesn't really need any breaking in but will wear them all day tomorrow & update my post later if necessary. I was able to slip my foot in without any problem.
This is my 3rd pair of Bean boots. Love each pair! (I have 10" Shearling Bean Boot size 10 for snow days & Signature Wool Bean Boot Buffalo Check 16" size 9, just because they are FUN & the epitome of a fashion statement). The craftsmanship & quality of the Bean Boots is like none I've ever experienced before & it just feels so very special to know that each pair is handmade in Maine (my home state) "just for me". That's just how special they feel. Thank you Bean Boot Elves!
I expect my boots to last many years & bring me much joy & service. As a side note, I broke my ankle in three places and have metal rivets on the inner & outer left ankle & I'm unable to wear high heels. These boots cause me NO pain or discomfort after wearing all day! I'm thrilled & couldn't be more pleased.
