No surprises here, I'll probably mention these boots come each rainy season. The Bean boots have a rich and interesting history I'm not going to get into today. Besides the fact they just plain look great, they are probably one of the best all around shoes you could have on hand. They're affordable, you don't worry about them getting wet, they keep you warm and they look just as good on you as your dad, grandpa or son. My 8" Bean boots have made their fall debut this week and have been immediately put into heavy use as the drop in temperature and rainfall was an unfortunate turn. The high boot is great for the depths of winter with a GoreTex lining, but I've been interested in picking up a pair of the low cut mocs to match. They are slightly more ideal for spring, but when the rain is light and the mercury rises a little, they are a great weekend option for cruising the town or a vineyard. — Available at LL Bean

I was just surfing on eBay pretty hard looking at anything and everything vintage when I came across these beauties. A pair of LL Bean work boots from the 60's made by Chippewa boot company. Most people already have their boot game worked out but for the winter but there's always room in the closet for another. These have been broken in to near perfection and are looking great. I love the cherry red toes that fades into the tan upper. Similar to Red Wing's Iron Rangers they have that slimmer profile compared to other boots, a good thing in my opinion. Wear them with any pants cuffed, stacked, tucked in, whatever; these boots will work well with pretty much anything. Sorry if I blew up your spot, if not, the auction ends tomorrow night.
