Is the duck boot the new boat shoe? - Page 2

post #16 of 34
That look is most certianly back in fashion now. It is the fall version of the preppy redux look of summer. Instead of madras, seersucker and boat shoes, look for tweed, corduroy and duck boots. Some of us, especially in the northeast, have been wearing this stuff all of our lives, so it never went out of style. Notice my distinction between fashion and style.

A lot more of us in the north-northeast have done the same!

Whereas the "fashion" twinks wear Rick Owens sneaker-boots.




This comment was uncalled for.

If you're outside and it's cold and wet they work very well and always look good with a pair of jeans. I haven't owned a pair since I lived in Seattle. Great for fall and winter.

Opinion on these RL boots as a more stylish alternative to LL Bean?

you can buy those for $350 and in 3 months wonder why the hell you bought them, or you can buy the LL Bean's for $100 and keep them for 15 years

And then have LL resole them to last another 15.

Don't spend three times as much for a dumber looking high fashion version.

Why the bean boot hate? If you do a lot of walking in a cold weather city, they're a godsend. I'm not baller or stupid to trudge through the snow in my dress shoes, and bean boots look better with work clothes than most waterproof boots.

Funny, i just bought a pair of duck boots. I had no idea they were in style, i just used to wear them in jr high, and decided i wanted another pair.

Wait, people are saying these were never "fashionable"? I rememvber during like the 89-1992 a lot of people in my jr high wearing these, even when it wasnt snowing. I rememvber these and ll bean nylon backpacks as like some of the more popular items during jr high.

Ugh I cannot believe those might be considered "fashionable." I'll stick to my all leather Cabelas hunting boots and Irish Setter snow boots thank you very much

I'll be buying a pair of boots from LL Bean shortly. This is one item where I definitely wouldn't go for "designer."
