    Why We Love Them
    Whoever says “they don’t build things like they used to,” doesn't own these boots. Today, our signature boots are still sewn right here in Maine – one pair at a time – by expert craftspeople whose technical skills and passion for their work is evident in every pair of boots they make. Warm, dry feet haven’t gone out of style in a hundred years, so we haven’t needed to change L.L.’s innovative design.
    • Waterproof protection of rubber-bottom boots with the supple comfort of full-grain leather.
    • A uniquely shaped foot form offers comfort and stability, and a steel shank adds support.
    Additional Features
    • These boots – the “original antidote to wet feet” – were designed by L.L. Bean himself.
    • Still crafted here in Maine from the highest-quality materials.
    Men's Bean Boots, 8" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 661.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great quality from L.L. Bean Guess I'll be showing my age here but the quality of the Bean boots I received today is as good, if not better than the boots I ordered back in the 70's, 80's and 90's. L.L. Bean never lets me down. The size recommendations are accurate. Order a size down and you won't be disappointed. A little trick that I've learned over the years is to insert inexpensive foam insoles under the insoles that come with your Bean boots when wearing thin socks in the fall and spring. Remove the extra insoles in the winter when wearing heavy socks. It makes the fit of the boot feel consistent year least it does for me. Enjoy your Bean boots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first LL Bean Boots At age 55, I bought my first pair of LL Bean boots. The salesman was one of the best I have ever dealt with. There were so many options, I was unsure which boots I should buy. He asked me how I planned to use the boots and then made a recommendation, based on his own use of Bean boots over 28 years. He recommended I buy the basic boots and not one of the more expensive boots. Explaining why the basic boot was the better choice for me. He also took the time to explain how to care for my boots, to maximize their life. This was at the Kenwood store and I am sorry I did not get his name. Thank you for hiring someone who has a passion for your products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hunting or around town and made in USA I will try to explain some of the internal debates I had when ordering- First sizing- I usually wear a 10 1/2 wide. I was debating between a 9W and 10W which the sizing guidelines say you can get either depending on the socks you wear. I went with the 9W and they fit great. When I wear them in warmer weather I wear cotton socks and pull the laces real tight. In the winter I wear a thicker wool sock and just can't tighten the laces as much but they still work great. Height- I was debating between a 10" and 8" boot. 10" would have been great for hunting but the 8" is a good compromise to wear hunting but is still good to wear to work or casual. Overall a great boot made in the USA at a fair price. Got to love it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what they used to be I normally do not write reviews, but I've been a LL Bean customer for over 30 years and decided now is a good time. I received my Bean Boots in January of 2016 and have been less than satisfied with my purchase. I owned a pair in the early 90's and there is no comparison. The soles of the newer boots show considerably more wear than they should for the age and usage of the boots and the leather tops are cut uneven and not symmetrical. This is not the quality I had expected nor used to. I even contacted the company, and their response was for me to send them back and pay to have them resoled. My how the times have changed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and good quality. Difficult fit. I love these boots. They're a great accent to just about anything you can wear, super functional, and as comfortable as you could ever want. I have zero complaints; although the fit is somewhat difficult to nail. I typically wear a 10.5, and don't have to worry about width (although I usually cannot fit Nike running shoes very well). I tried a 9, and it was way too long, the 8 fit in length, but was tight about my heel. The wide model fit perfectly with regular and wool socks. I think the most annoying thing was, since the store was sold out of just about every size variance, I had to order each to see if it would fit. So it took about a month to get one that fit.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad to say... This is the first time in over 40 years of buying LL Bean products and these boots, that I am supremely let down. The other pairs I have used were always perfectly sized. These are almost flopping on me. Even with heavy socks and additional liners, these are too big and really try to rip up my heals. I tried the next size down and they are way too small with heavy socks. The older pairs I have had could be used both summer and winter and were just right. I'm not even sure if I can get any use out of these at this point. Somewhere, the sizing and manufacture of the rubber base has gone very wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly too big I wear a 10.5 - 11 shoe. Depends on the brand, fit, style, etc. I finally decided to purchase some Bean boots for Spring/Fall wet weather. I went to the flagship store and bought the blue ones. I was told they only come in whole sizes. The 10s were too small and the 11s were too big. I was told that with the furry insoles and thick socks they'd fit perfectly. Not the case. They're too big through and through. I'm surprised they didn't come in half sizes as I just bought the amazing Storm Chaser boots in a 10.5. When it comes to waterproof, these can't be beat. I'm still figuring out a way to put something in the toe to make them fit, as I really do love the boots.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution Wet Feet After waiting two and half months for my boots to arrive I was pumped and ready to hit the trails. I'm writing this review now just weeks later to tell you to keep looking because they do not live up to the hype. The boots are ok for walking around a muddy backyard but I've found they do not hold up well to water. Whether you are walking in snow, crossing a small stream or even stepping in a puddle water will seep in through the bottom seems of the tongue. I found the boots very comfortable and I do enjoy wearing them on dry days. But if you are looking for waterproof its best to avoid because water does seep in.
