Rated 5 out of 5 by Marge11 Best buy of the year!
I bought the boots because my old boots had gotten too small. I've had the boots for 3 months and they have totally been worth the money. They have been awesome for the snow and the mud once the snow has melted. They keep my feet warm and dry and are excellently made. I usually wear an 8 - 8 1/2 so I got a 9 and they are roomy enough to wear thicker socks, but not too roomy that they are uncomfortable with thinner socks on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shwolfe1 Great boots
I love the look of these boots (I got the red felt) but more important they are great to wear during winter weather, which is why I purchased them to begin with. I'm usually a size 8 and per the suggestions I selected the size 7. I can wear regular or thick socks with these boots. Also I bought these online in January but they were backordered until May...I got them in February. Overall, a wonderful pair of boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by horsesandcats Another Great Bean boot
I bought these in red and I love them. They have that great LL Bean boot fit- order a half size up and you can wear nice warm Bean socks comfortably. The wool felt is well constructed. I buy a new pair of Bean boots every winter to add to my already plentiful Bean boot collection. These are my favorite winter boots; they have good traction and they are warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CalifGirlinNC Warm, lightweight, comfortable---perfect!
Since I'm originally from SoCal where the only thing we hunt for is a parking place and really "cold" weather is rare, I've never had an excuse to buy a Bean Boot. Now living in the mountains of NC, this year I finally decided to try them out.
Normally I wear 9.5, but I followed sizing instructions & ordered size 8. Fit is perfect with medium weight socks, but if I wanted to wear thicker socks, I'd probably want these in 9. The wool felt fabric in taupe/brown is a good neural color and has kept my feet warm in our recent single digit weather with snow. I'm a happy shopper!

by Lovinglife1 Wow, these are my best Bean Boots yet!!!!
Just got these today, after a short wait due to Christmas out of stock. These are just perfect!!! The red wool dresses up the boot so it doesn't seem so masculine. It sets them apart from the other boots. I can see myself wearing these most of the year since they are not lined, and the weather is cooler in the summer here. They look amazing with cuffed jeans. I have these on today which is 4 degrees with the ragg wool socks. The sizing is the same on all the bean boots..I got a 7 reg, my normal shoe size is 7.5 or 8 ..or a 7W. I would recommend these to all those women that want a little more dressed up boot that looks fashionable with jeans.

by platypod Classic and rugged. Felt rocks!
I saw these at the L.L. Bean store and really liked their classic good looks. The combination of what appears to be undyed wool felt and rubber is crazy cool. In spite of my immediate attraction to these magnificent boots - for some inexplicable reason I did not buy them. After awhile I succumbed to "I-Shoulda-Bought-Those-Boots" Remorse. So I went online and of course the Christmas rush was in full swing and they were out of stock for weeks! When my size was finally available they said they would not be ready till Jan 23rd. I placed my order and to my surprise they were on my doorstep on tuesday (Jan 14)!!! Thanks to "Bolly" for making my boots faster than I anticipated! I immediately took them out of their box put them on and promptly tested them out on the cold and sloshy tundra of Chiberia-land. They are quite comfortable and look fantastic. Thanks L.L. Bean for my awesome new boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mtnmarylandbeanslady Amazing boots--a must-have!
I don't usually write reviews but this time I have to. These boots are amazing, and I own and have owned quite a few pairs of Bean Boots and MHS. Our family has worn them since the 1920s.
I have never felt anything quite like these wool felt 8" Bean Boots. Out of the box, I thought they would be too scratchy. The felt is tough, not soft, and the boots are unlined. But once on--with socks--the wool takes on a life of its own. It laces snugly and holds the lacing, no loosening. It does not bunch, it lies smoothly and is just the right heft and thickness. It feels like a heavy oiled canvas (I believe they are waterproofed so probably are oiled). The look is perfect with the brown leather trim and brown bottoms. I have them in the taupe color. It is a warmer color than it appears online, not grey at all but a light warm heather brown.
Overall, these are possibly the best Bean Boots I own. It is a pleasure to wear them. I hope Beans keeps making these, and maybe in a slightly higher version as well, in a nice sage or forest green?

Rated 5 out of 5 by BootLover17 perfect
I am a college student on a large campus and so far these boots are perfect. It has been below 0 degrees and I have worn these boots with thick socks and my feet are practically sweating. I have several pairs of boots and these are definitely my favorite pair. I absolutely love them, they go with everything and I have walked from one end of campus to another (about 20 mins) without any problems. I highly recommend these, I have gotten several compliments and I could not have bought a better boot. I normally wear a size 12 in most shoes but the 11 fit perfectly (with plenty of room for thick socks) as these run very big. They are 100% worth the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Southernerupnorth8 Comfortable and goodlooking
Very comfortable and super stylish, but maybe not the best choice for regularly trekking around in the snow.
As with all Beanboots, don't forget to check out the sizing...they run big! I normally wear a size 8.5 or 9 in women's shoes, but I ordered the size 7 in the bean boots, and they fit perfectly.
