L.L.Bean Bean Boots, Gumshoes

rated 5 of 5 stars

Perfect boot in mild or in-town conditions, walking to store, work or newspaper box. Ideal in wet, raining, slush and mud. Perfect to slip on quickly. Great value.


  • Perfect for errands or in town
  • Fast to slip on and off
  • Ideal on sidewalks that have chemical or salts applied
  • Fashion statement for many decades


  • Limited insulation value
  • Can be chilly in below freezing
  • Modest traction on soles, not for black ice days!

Fit well, consider sizing with a heavy rag or fleece sock for extra insulation value.  Lacing allows a tight and snug fit.  Comfortable out of box, gets better with many miles. 

Very water resistant in shallow puddles.  My favorite in autumn when the lawn or forest has much dew or frost, but later in day it drys.  Perfect for yard work in wet conditions. Arch support is ideal.

Very well made, with the legendary warranty, and great customer service reputation!

I have worn for decades and love this product!  On river camping trips, these are perfect for evening time around the fire, and to wear to kitchen setting for early morning coffee on chilly days.  Rainstorms won't dampen your days.
