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.

Here are some shoe choices from the Whole Earth Catalog of August 1972.

While Walter Dryer is still around as a company, I dont think they are still offering these handmade mocs, to bad especially at that price.

Wish Wallabees were still only $23.95

A classic.
