Oh, the coveted Bean Boot. These waterproof boots from L.L.Bean were sold out all winter last year. I don’t have a pair but they are definitely on my Christmas list this year. I know we haven’t even seen snow yet in Cleveland (or did we last weekend?! I couldn’t tell.) but it’s definitely time to start thinking about placing your order, especially if these are as popular this year as they were last!
If the Bean Boot isn’t necessarily your style, there are other options. First off, Sperry makes the Duck Boot which comes in a ton of different colors and a few different styles. I have friends who own these and use the non-fur ones as both rain boots and winter boots.
Last but certainly not least, Sorel makes an amazing waterproof boot. I have two pairs (the top pair below and then a black and white kid’s pair) that I absolutely love. I recommend them to everyone and literally wear them all winter long. I’ve had them both for a couple years and even through the craziest Cleveland winter storms, they show no signs of wear and tear.
Whichever route you decide to go, now is the time to start thinking about winter boots. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?!
