Bean Boots / Duck Boots

FullSizeRender

Who doesn’t love Bean Boots? They keep you prepared for any type of weather and situation that may arise. The footwear is easily a staple of preppy east coast and northerners as it’s not uncommon to find people who have owned their pair for 20+ years. Think of them as an investment piece that you can sport year after year.

In recent years, these boots have been back ordered during the winter months when you need them most. I bought one pair a few summers ago so I was able to use them in the fall, and my last pair last spring and had to wait to use them. Many pairs are already back ordered til March, so I’m going over the few that are (currently) in stock:

This boot is perfect for those who want the boot for the waterproof factor. This style works for walks to class or who live in a climate that gets less snow than the north but still need a good pair for fall/winter. I’ve heard some people choose this style because they’re short and think that this looks more proportioned on them. The best part is that they are in stock!

The regular 8″ bean boot is back ordered indefinitely, but see it as a blessing in disguise. I own this pair and I recommend spending the $30 more to get this version of the boot. I have regular bean boots, and the thinsulate is way warmer. If you plan on wearing your boots in the snow, the taller size and warmer version are well worth the investment! Get these before they are back ordered.

Side note: Bean Boots run way big! I wear a 7.5 normally, I could probably do a 6 but have chosen to get a size 7 in Bean Boots so I have room for thick socks.

The Saltwater Duck Boot

If the Bean Boots you wanted are back ordered, or you want something a little different, I highly reccommend the Saltwater Duck Boot by Sperry.  I own this green pair above and find it’s very easy to slip on and off, and adds a little style to my outfit. I wouldn’t necessarily wear them in snow, but they’re perfect for in-between weather.
