Rated 5 out of 5 by brooklynborn1 needed for the cold and wet
We bought these for upcoming conditons of wet and slush. So although they havenet been put through the test, we can tell you about the fit. Buy a smaller size then you would ordinarilly wear. We normally wear an 8, we tried on both 7 and 8 and the 7 fit just fine.. The boot is very comfortable and lighter in weight then they appear.

After much debate...I ordered my true size. Turns out, I am very pleased with my decision. I wear a traditional size 8 and don't have any width issues. In my case, all the comments to downsize didn't apply. I believe it is the shearling that makes the difference in the fit of this particular boot. As I loose the loft of the shearling, I can wear heavier socks, if necessary. I also love the affect of the tumbled leather upper- it was the look I had in mind. The overall appeal of the boot is very complimentary to my somewhat conservative style.

by BeanBoot73 Well worth the wait!
I ordered mine in November, knowing that they'd be on back order, and got them in April and they are well worth the wait. I live in upstate NY and we still had a few wintry days so I was able to wear them and I LOVE them! They do run big so I ordered one size smaller and they fit perfectly! They are comfortable, warm, and stylish. I wore "duck" boots and shoes as a kid and loved them and I love my Bean Boots now! My daughter wants a pair so I'll be getting them in the summer so she'll have them for the winter. Definitely a great product!!

If you can be patient, order these boots! They are the best. I waited 3 months and the moment I put them on I was in love. I am so glad I chose to spend a little more and get the tumbled leather and shearling lined. The leather looks so much more relaxed than the standard boot and having a tongue that is not attached makes for a very easy on/off. The lining is wonderful and not too thick. I like that it is optional for the foot portion (can be purchased separately) because my feet tend to sweat and I just need my normal socks nothing additional. I know the investment in these boots will make me happy for years to come. Thank you!

Have only had one snow storm since receiving, but these were comfortable right out of the box. Looking forward to having them next winter

These boots are everything I hoped they'd be--comfortable, warm, well made and (presumably) great protection from the elements. They didn't arrive until after the worst of the winter weather, but I'm praying for rain so I can test these buggers out proper! My normal show size is between 8.5 and 9 and the 8 in the Bean Boots was a good fit for thin socks and snug but comfy in thick socks. BUY THEM! You'll be glad you did.

I Waited a long time for by Bean Boots and love the, I only wish it was colder this winter. Not much snow around this year to really enjoy them. I ordered them in Nov and got them at the end of Feb. I normally take a 9 and ordered a 9 and they were way too big. Downsized to an 8 and they fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bostonladysuburb Of course they are perfect, LL Bean!
I am 48 yrs old. As a teen I owned the "duck shoes". I loved the way the bean boots looked for quite a while. Finally decided to order them for my birthday last year in October. Yay! Originally I ordered the one without the shearling and tumbled leather. A local mall has a Bean kiosk. I am usually a size 9. I tried them on-couldn't get my foot in them because of the way the tongue is attached. The tumbled shearling style tongue is not attached, and so very lovely! I did order a full size down. I received them mid February. In the meantime I bought a pair of look-alikes. Kept telling myself I would keep them and return the L.L. Bean ones to save some money. Just the same I did not cancel the order waiting to see how they looked and felt on my feet.
Once received, there was no way I was returning them. They are warm, comfortable, and I know I will have them forever!
Thank you LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKH1976 Love these
In short, I cannot believe that I've lived in New England without these boots for so long. I often walk several miles per day, and these are, by far, the most comfortable winter boots I have purchased. These are warm, comfy, and perfect for the classic "wintry mix". I did not have to break these in at all...they were super comfortable right out of the box.
Though these were back-ordered, (and back-ordered again), the LLBean customer service team was gracious enough to call and offer an apology. I did have to wait 4 months for these boots, but the wait was worth it for the quality product and customer service received.
I am an LL Bean convert!!
