Kids' Bean Boots, Thinsulate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing Tips Others have already commented on the wonderful quality of these boots, so this review is for sizing only. I am a dead-on Womens 6 in street shoes, so after reading all of the helpful reviews, I ordered a Kids 3. They fit me perfectly when wearing mid-weight merino hiking socks, with a little room to spare. A 4 would have definitely been too large. For reference, I compared the insoles of a Kids 3 and a Women's 6 Bean Boot (the Shearling-Lined version)—see photo. The Kids insole measures 8 5/8", and the Women's insole is 3/8" longer, at 9". The Womens Bean Boot was far too roomy for me, so I'm stoked that the Kids 3 works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my bean boots I have wanted a pair of these for a long time. It seems every time I would start to order them, they were backordered. Well, I finally ordered them in August and got them. I wear a 5.5 so I ordered a kids size 3. When I first put them on they seemed a bit narrow but I kept them. I finally got to wear them during a rainy camping trip and they broke in easily. I wore thinner socks at first but now can wear a thicker sock and they are very comfortable. I just wish LlBean would make either more color options for kids sizes or make size 5 in the adult boots. Would love some of the small batch boots but the adult size 6 is just too large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I'm 28 and typically wear a regular women's size 6. Since they recommended going down a size but 6 was the smallest size in women's, the customer service person I chatted with recommended a girls size 3. They fit perfectly!! I live in Texas so I didn't necessarily need to wear them with thick socks but I think if I did they would still be fine. Great service, and they even notified me they would be backordered longer than expected and then they arrived on time anyway! They're also comfortable right away and don't seem to need any breaking in. Bottom line, if you want Bean Boots but you have smaller feet, girls sizes work perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing I love these boots but wanted to share a little about sizing. I am a women's 5.5-6 and I ordered a kid's 4 (think converse or vans sizing). I'm keeping the 4 because they do take quite a while to ship- mine were estimated to take 2.5 months when I ordered them but came two weeks early. I have to wear thick socks with these- like SUPER thick, so I'm not going to be able to wear them in the summer. Definitely size WAY down- I'm glad I read comments from others before I ordered my pair. Otherwise really great boots! I always had them as a kid and they really last forever; they're durable and way more slip proof than you'd think. I'm excited to wear this new pair in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth it I am a college student but my feet were too small for the women's sizes. I ordered a size 5 in Kids and I normally wear a size 6.5 in women's. These shoes are SUPER sturdy and they are definitely going to come in handy for the upcoming New England Winter. They fit my feet very well, I can wear a nice thick pair of wool/fuzzy socks comfortably with them (which is a huge plus because I think they wouldn't keep my feet warm otherwise). My only catch with the kids boots is that they are a little taller than I wanted them to be and they only come in tan, other than that though I am super excited to start wearing these. Plus my expected shipping date was sometime in April but they arrived at my door in the first week of January. Thanks L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid shoe and good fit with some break-in! I am a size 6 1/2-7 in women's shoes and ordered this child's size 4 for my boots. I almost feel like I could go with the child's size 3, but that could also be just a tad too snug. I like that I can wear heavier socks with my boots if desired. I already really love the fit! They did need some breaking in, but I expected that. A bit of rubbing on the back of my ankle, but I anticipate that that will go away with more wear like other boots I have owned. Overall, happy with my purchase and know that these will last a lifetime as a classic boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot for adults with small feet! I was sad that I was unable to purchase the women's LL Bean boots due to my smaller sized foot. I wear a size 5 and since the adult boots fit a whole size larger, I was unable to purchase a pair. After some research, I found out that a children's size 3 was the same size as a women's 5. I purchased the boots immediately. They finally came and I could not be any more excited! The boots fit perfectly! They are not too tight, so I am able to put a thicker sock on under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Boots. Ever! I'm currently at one of the snowiest cities in the US & I have to say I love these boots! I used to own a pair of the Sperry's Saltwater boots, but they fell apart after one season. I finally bit the bullet and accepted the backorder for a pair of Bean boots. I'm usually a women's 5.5, and after carefully reading other reviews, I ordered the kid's 3 in October. A month later, the boots arrived even though it said it would be backordered until January! These boots are warm and comfortable, not to mention so stylish and cute. I've been wearing these out to the rain, snow and even to hunt and they're holding up so nicely. However, the laces are a little bit shorter than I expected. Overall, I'm sure these boots will be with me for years to come!
