I finally bought a pair of L.L. Bean’s “Bean Boots.” I’ve seen them duped by other companies, but I bought the real deal during Cyber Monday and I am SO happy that I did. They are perfect for the Michigan winters, and for walking around a snowy campus. They are easily the most waterproof boots I’ve ever had, not to mention for winter boots they are insanely cute and easy to style.
Now, I have the 8″ in Tan/Navy, and I feel like for living in somewhere that gets a lot of lake effect snow, this height is great. Keep in mind they are typically $129. But, you are paying for really high quality boots, that are made in the USA, which is something I really applaud L.L. Bean for. Also something really important to know with these shoes is that you MUST order a size down. I am typically a size 7 in shoes, but I order the Women’s 6 (medium width). They are still a tiny bit roomy with regular socks, but with thick fuzzy socks or with cabin socks they fit perfectly.
They are really great boots, and I’m so glad I got them. They keep my feet warm from the harsh winter we’ve been having (although, most of the snow is starting to melt now), and they are really comfortable. They are also really easy to keep clean. So yes, I would 10/10 recommend these boots and this brand!
I’ve decided to link boots below, some by L.L. Bean and some not, because I understand if some people are hesitant to pay the full $129 for them. (However, I do really believe it’s a really good investment.) I even found a pair for under $30. Some of the prices of the L.L. Bean duck boots may vary on here, because of height and if they are insulated or not. I mainly just added these extras to show the variety of colors and styles. Keep in mind that a lot of the options up here do have multiple colors they come in!!
