I'm putting this out there because I've already been planning on whipping my out in the very near feature... It's totally the time to get Bean Boots. Seriously, you might find yourself wanting them in a few weeks, so order them now!
I remember my dad was telling me that I needed these "duck boots" before I went to Georgetown. They were certainly nothing like I had ever seen in Florida. Ever. I scoffed at him and laughed that anyone would ever wear those "weird" shoes. He bought me a pair (the mocs!) for my birthday my freshman year and I was still horrified. However, I wore them at least once a week from October to May... every. single. year.
I hate to admit it, but my dad was right. Rawr.
It can be tricky to pick out which pair you're going to get. Here's a breakdown:
Moccasins | I love mine. They're great for slipping into on lazy mornings and wearing with patterned socks when it's cold. I wore these all the time for crew practices and regattas.
Gumshoes | These are a great pick if you're not sure what size to get. They're low. And easy. A great medium between the 6" and the mocs. Little V had a pair that I would borrow.
6" | These were my second pair... obsessed. Perfect for slouchy socks and tucking into skinny jeans. I like that these are definitely made more so for the elements.
8" | If you're in a snowier climate, you might consider the higher boot. I personally think the six inches feel more comfortable and hit my leg at a better point, but you definitely get more pant coverage with the eight inchers!
The only picture I could find of the mocs... Please note, I miss crew... but I do not miss this. #RainyRegatta
Do you have Bean Boots? Which pair do you have or want?
