Its been pretty wet these past few weeks and anytime I step into the mud pit which is our backyard I have found myself wearing these boots. They are known at the Maine Hunting Shoes, duck boots, or Bean boots, whatever you call them they are rugged and do a damn good job of keeping your feet dry. Here are some images pulled from the L.L. Bean Guide to the Outdoors.

Variations on a theme.

These are some older advertisements for the shoe from 1922. Click for larger.

These have been getting so much attention lately, and rightfully so…as long as you don’t live in a pseudo-desert. I do admit I wish I had a good excuse for them in so cal.

yeah these are definitely wet weather kicks and kind of an east coast thing, but you could still rock em on those rainy days!
