I have owned a pair of the LL Bean boots for a few months now and I can honestly say they are the best. I originally owned a pair of Sperry tall boots but they became worn out to the point of them ripping. I finally caved and decided to invest in the Bean boots which are pricey at 109$. However, walking around for a long duration of time in the rain and snow they are comfortable and best of all DURABLE . Two things I have a difficult time finding in a pair of rain and snow boots. Going to school on the east coast is freezing (seriously its nineteen degrees here) but these boots paired with thick socks are perfect. Most importantly, these boots are classic. They go with any outfit especially preppy ones! I’m not trying to sell you all on these boots but if you’re ever near an LL Bean store try them on!
