Oh, Duck Boots. One of the most quintessentially New England items of clothing/footwear ever. EVER.
My parents have been attempting to get me to wear Duck Boots pretty much since I could walk. They’ve bought me a zillion pairs and I’ve worn them grudgingly. But now… I’m obsessed.
I have no idea why, but suddenly I’ve decided that they are probably the cutest, preppiest, most amazing shoe ever. You can wear them as your go-to winter boot, in the fall just for the cute factor, or throughout the year in the rain. Or, you know, all of the above.
Unfortunately, the original Duck Boot – the L.L. Bean “Bean Boot” – is currently sold out or on ridiculous back order everywhere. But I’ve got my eye on the two pairs above: the Maine Hunting Boot and the 8″ Bean Boot. As you can see from the first photo in this post (she’s wearing the Maine Hunting Boot), they’re super cute to wear with skinny jeans.
